About Us

One of the first questions I am often asked is" what is the style of your photography?

Clients have used these terms to describe it: photojournalistic, natural, documentary, editorial, candid, and magazine-style. I guess this makes sense because I've been shooting for magazines and the print media for over two decades. In fact, it's not surprising to learn that man of my wedding and bar mitzvah clients are industry professionals: graphic designers, art directors, web designers, and include a magazine publisher, several editors from The New York Times, Reuters, and two editors from People Magazine.

The hallmark of our work is that we photograph weddings and other life-cycle events in a natural, documentary style. We unobtrusively explore the beyond the obvious in an effort to capture the real feelings as well as the details of your entire day. We cover all of the traditional moments including the formal portraits... which we make in a relaxed, and comfortable way. We record your real experiences, and make evocative, heartfelt photographs that show not just what happened that day, but who are you and and answer that question: What did it feel like to be you?

I sincerely promise you that:

  • We will be as unobtrusive as possible.
  • We will be as generous with our creative energies as possible.
  • We will us only the very best equipment, supplies, and vendors.
  • We will listen attentively to each and every one of your concerns.
  • We care about you, as well as your photographs.

Our coverage plans are very flexible. We have a Coverage Only option, which includes: 8 hours of documentary and portrait photography, custom quality prints 4x6 prints, and negatives and/or digital files. The fees start at $3500 for coverage by Dan, and $2500 for coverage by our Associate Photography, Roehl Pangilinan. Please note that we offer party coverage by the hour, for events during the week or with very short lead times.

Thank you for your interest. If any additional questions arise, please don't hesitate to contact me.
