OUR STUDIO

We are a club of like-minded artists all cut from the same creative cloth. Collaborating and challenging each other for the sake of our craft and for the couples we are privileged to work with. We would be lying if we said we weren’t a little competitive, but that only drives us to redefine our work day in and day out. And if we were feeling a bit swanky, we would mention that we’ve been recognized as some of the best wedding photographers in the world by Brides Magazine and were winners of the prestigious Rangefinder Rising Stars award in 2015. But we’re a bit too bashful to ever say that out loud, so just make sure to read this in your head.

Shaped by his Eastern European upbringing, Paul has a fancy for the finer things in life like art… and whiskey. A former biologist, Paul adapted his fascination for studying life to capturing it with a camera. Calm yet outspoken describes the dichotomy of both Paul’s work, and his commanding presence in life.

Ben

CINEMATOGRAPHER

Born and raised on the East Coast, Ben found his passion for photography when his dad passed down his Nikon F SLR — sheer class. A man about Korean food, good tv shows, snowboarding, and traveling, Ben can be found in the dictionary under the definition of the word ‘debonair’. Ben’s eye for light, color, and story through honest moments, make his cinematic approach desired by all who dare to desire at all.

Kait

STUDIO MANAGER

After moving from California and living in New York for nine years, Kait has learned a thing or two about getting stuff done. Part photographer, part producer, part planner, she’s a modern day wedding sphinx who will work with you every step of the way and even tuck you into bed at night - she’s just that nice. When she’s not busy effortlessly solving every wedding problem in the Tri-state area, you can find her at a local Brooklyn park soaking in the sun and petting all of the dogs.
