A former Philadelphia Inquirer photojournalist, I shoot events, corporate, public relations and commercial photography. I photograph weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and corporate events in the greater Philadelphia region. I'm happy to shoot headshots or photos for your business website, either in the studio or a more organic setting. Real estate agents love these headshot styles I document growing families, take family portraits, and also do family lifestyle photo shoots.
I provide photographic services in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, Bucks County, Philadelphia's Main Line and beyond. I am always glad to help my clients make use of all of the wonderful and unique photography locations in the area. As a former staff photographer for The Philadelphia Inquirer, I've worked in every location in the region. I also enjoy photographing in Delaware County, Cape May, Atlantic City, Ocean City, New Jersey Shore towns, Wilmington, the surrounding areas in Delaware, including Delaware beach weddings, the Poconos. In New Jersey, I also love photographing in the famous Ivy League town of Princeton in Mercer County, and on the beautiful Princeton University campus in the heart of the town. Horse country in Hunterdon County, New Jersey also offers rich scenery and interesting backdrops for wedding and event photography. Another favorite New Jersey wedding venue is the Laurita Winery. Further north, I have also enjoyed working in New York City and the wonderful nature-filled areas along the Hudson Valley. I have photographed in 60-plus countries and Bucks County, Montgomery County, Delaware County, and Main Line Wedding and Event Photographer.
