PhotoEmphasis Rochester Wedding Photographer

“The best value in wedding photography bar none.”


When you hire PhotoEmphasis you will receive an engagement session with most packages and like your wedding all retouched images will be delivered on DVD with a release! Click the following link if you would like to see some engagement photo samples.

Do you know couples I’ve photographed?

After many years’ experience as a photographer you should take solace in the fact that I will be the one photographing your wedding. It’s been said by some that my photography prices are lower than the average for high quality professional wedding photography; the reason is simple: overhead. Take a portfolio and determine for yourself why many of my couples have said: “PhotoEmphasis is the best value in wedding photography bar none.” If you want professional high quality wedding photography, professional service, and courteous family interaction and schedule a consultation. Need more? Just show me the reviews.

Speaking of my blog, during the wedding season my blog will be your way of tracking my progress; you’ll be able to see the weddings that have been completed (with a sample set from each wedding) and weddings that have been photographed pending processing and those that have not been photographed yet.

Price verses Photographer’s Portfolio:

Carefully consider my portfolio and the price that I am offering. You don’t have to spend a fortune for superior photographs and professional Photojournalistic coverage. Many others have agreed and you may too that PhotoEmphasis is the best value regardless of price.

What’s Included in Wedding Packages?

All edited high resolution images with release for the bride and groom and their parents in most packages online gallery for viewing and ordering, unlimited venues, up to 12 hours of coverage, free shipping on print orders for anyone purchasing from your online gallery, and engagement session with several packages. You can view pricing here and when we meet I will provide a full price list. PhotoEmphasis does not limit the number of edited photos; all photos are fully edited and given to you on DVD, always. On average couples can expect around 1000 photographs. If you think you need two photographers, consider this:

Do you offer two photographers?

“Within the last several years dual photographer coverage has become expected by some couples due to marketing and the perceived “two is better than one” scenario. Few weddings benefit from multiple photographers, which can be intrusive–especially if you hire a videographer; furthermore, a professional photographer’s main objective is to tell your wedding story from start to finish–a photographic essay if you will, and a coherent essay from multiple photographers is less likely. If your wedding is one of the few that benefit from dual photographers, careful time-line planning will minimize those benefits while providing non-intrusive coverage on your wedding day. The biggest mistake you can make when choosing a photographer is to base your decision on the fact that you think you need two photographers for adequate coverage; nothing can be further from the truth. Your decision should be based on a photographer’s portfolio and price. If you think a second photographer is still a requirement one is offered as an option for a nominal charge and I would be glad to discuss it with you.”

Capturing key moments at your wedding a wedding photographer’s top priorities.

A Photographer’s Philosophy:

I am not there to change, alter or modify your wedding in any way; rather, my goal as your photographer is to capture precise moments as a Photojournalist and traditional photography people have come to expect. I define on-location photography as the time I spend with the bride and groom and their bridal party; this is another opportunity to capture the kinds of photographs you see throughout my portfolio. Your reception is a very special part of your day, from the time you’re introduced until the time I leave we will have minimal interaction.

What Areas do Photographers Cover?

Based in Rochester NY, I photograph weddings in all of upstate NY. In addition to shooting weddings in Rochester, I also specifically cover Buffalo & Syracuse and points east such as Rome and Utica including the southern-tier. I routinely photograph weddings and engagement sessions around the Finger Lakes including venues such as Belhurst Castle located in Geneva. There is a nominal adder for travel for some locations, but the travel time is not subtracted from your wedding photography coverage. I have been photographing weddings in and around Rochester and Buffalo for 13 years averaging between forty to fifty weddings per year and I look forward to talking to you about your wedding day.
