Hello Again!

Our work and our marriage is built around our passion and love for photo and film. We are a team in the best sense of the word, working together to create unique and lasting memories for each of our couples on their engagement, wedding days and beyond. And with us being newlyweds ourselves, we have a different perspective and understanding than most about what it takes to get down the aisle.

We love to get to know each of our couples personally, so we can capture your day in a way that speaks to you. We can’t wait to hear from you and help capture your love story.

“I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

Art has always been a part of my life in one way or another. In high school, I found my passion for photography. As photo editor of the high school newspaper, it was all about finding the stories worth telling and learning to capture the moments as they happened. I didn’t always have a second chance to get the shot and that still rings true with weddings. In college, I explored my creative voice and further dove into the world of photography. As for wedding, college is also when a job assisting a local wedding photographer just fall into my lap as if by fate, and was the beginning of my wedding education. 

After college, I continued to pursue photography, which brought me on crazy adventures from flying around in a helicopter to traveling the world. Though through it all life kept bringing me back to weddings, portraits and love. I found my place with weddings and fell in love not only with the work but with Walter. To me being a photographer is more than just taking stunning photos, it's about telling the stories of the people in front of my camera. I enjoy being the calming influence on a crazy day helping make all our bride’s dreams come true on her wedding day and after as they grow their families. When I’m not shooting, I like to spend time at home with Walter, a glass of wine, a good movie or planning our next adventure.

The Photo

Hi, I’m Walter and I’m a Cinematographer based in Long Island, New York. Over the past 15 years, I’ve had the privilege of documenting people’s most cherished memories as they start their lives together. As a guy, I can’t say that growing up I ever saw myself capturing weddings. Music, Movies, and Computers were what grabbed my attention and still do play a large part in my life. But as I was working a summer job at a wedding studio, I realized that I could use these interests to help tell other people’s stories. That's when what was once a right out of college summer job became a passion and then my career. 

In weddings, I not only get to use my passions to create amazing memories for our couples, but I have also created some of my fondest personal memories. It’s where I met my beautiful wife for the first time, built many lasting friendships and found opportunities to travel. As you can guess weddings play a large part in Courtney and I's lives, however if I’m not shooting or editing, you can probably find me hanging out by our pool, on a long walk or just cuddled up on the couch with her!
