As a professional Wedding Photographer over the past 6 years, Nick has learned how to produce consistent results while performing exceptionally well under pressure. The consistency and the quality of his work is attributed to his wedding photography experience. His friendly demeanor, his professional manners and his easy to get along with personality are three reasons that he's the person you will want to be your wedding photographer. His outlook on documenting weddings goes way beyond the main subjects. He finds that everything that is happening around the main subject is just as important to create a beautiful story. He's constantly surveying the guests for an impactful reaction. For example, the first time the groom sees his bride, the mother watching her husband walk their daughter down the aisle, the parents finally letting out tears of joy or simply someone’s best impression of a good dancer during the reception. This mentality has allowed him to succeed in his profession and these kinds of moments inspire him. This is what he loves to do. He has worked so hard for the opportunity to be your wedding Photographer.
Since I was twelve years old- my dad gave me his old camera (a Minolta srt 101). I used to hand roll and develop my own b&w film in my parents' basement. I was fascinated and hooked for life. I studied photography at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Later I went on to practice photojournalism for state Government. I was the personal photographer to the Attorney General. In this position, I photographed the daily activities of the Attorney General and the House of Representatives meanwhile producing many shoots for the Governor. My specialty is weddings I love that each wedding is different and brings with it new challenges and new opportunities for creative expressions. Story telling through photography is my biggest passion and I feel that is why wedding imagery is my favorite.
