Hi! I'm Daniel,
YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
I've always been relationship-driven. It's our connections with those close to us that makes our life's experience that much richer.
It's no surprise that my clients naturally become a part of my family. There is no other industry in which I believe I am better suited.
Being a wedding photographer allows me to live a creative, fulfilling existence while being in service to others.
We are a good fit if you are looking for a fresh, enthusiastic, seasoned professional who will put you at ease, make you laugh,
and spend quality time with you before, during, and after your wedding day.
Getting to know each other on a personal level allows me to not only to make sure all of your needs are met, it allows us to foster a bond that enables me to capture and deliver your stunning images you'll cherish for the rest of your life.
At the end of the day, it all boils down to this:
I'm personable, fun, and enthusiastic (and sometimes cornier than I care to admit).
I am more than your photographer, I am your dear friend who's looking out for you, who's been through enough wedding days to be able to calmly help you navigate yours.
I play well with others (venues, video teams, DJs…)
I'm driven by an intense desire to capture beautifully moving and evocative images.
If it hasn't been made abundantly clear, I truly love what I do. While my enthusiasm is contagious, what really ignites it all is the connection my couples share. I hone in on it, and together, we create something wonderful.
I would love nothing more than to be of service to you.
If you'd like to add more personal stuff...you can add the following as well.
So...as a child, I always found myself looking through one eye; visually obscuring further away things with other closer things.
Try it...The closer thing is in focus while the further away thing isn't. That's a shallow depth of field. (Bet ya didn't expect a free li'l photography lesson, did ya?)
I was composing like a photographer while I still had skinned knees, wondering why ripped open Super Balls smelled so good (no, modern day ones don't; they changed the recipe), and arguing with my brother over territorial boundaries on the couch we shared while watching Saturday morning cartoons.
It wasn't until decades later that I was gifted my first digital camera. "What do I do with this? Point it and say, 'Say Cheese?'"...I assure you, I was clueless.
One day, driving around, I came across a boarded up, abandoned home, somewhere between Old Bridge & the Atlantic. I pulled over, snapped a quick, intention-less picture, and thought nothing of it.
It wasn't until I loaded that bad boy onto my computer, and clicked a button that turned it to black and white. My eyes widened, and I leaned as close to my desk as I could.
"Look at the sun peeking through the leaves! Look at the shadows on the lawn! If I knew what I was doing, this [photography] could be really cool!"
I was hooked.
Oh, and...Cats are my spirit animal, and (to steal a B-Boys lyric here) dogs love me because I'm crazy sniffable. I spend much of my time wondering when I'll eat Indian, Sushi, or Korean Tacos (or honestly, any tacos) again.
