ONE — longevity in this saturated market

I am entering my 20th year photographing professionally. My couples have found me completely by word of mouth. This tells me I am doing something right. I am particularly proud that I have never had to run an ad in a magazine or do a 'wedding show'. Since the inception of my business, I have worked hard to build my brand around...me. There is only one ME.

 

TWO — experience

I don't sell photos. I sell an experience. This is how I explain my process to my couples. This goes for every wedding supplier I interact with, especially the planners, as I work most closely with them during the whole planning process. I'm super personable and professional and I am always well dressed. Because my work is all word of mouth, I am very cognizant to make sure I am at my best to represent the referrer (in this case, you) properly. After all, this is a high trust industry and there is no way I would want to damage your trust and, possibly, your reputation...nor my reputation.

THREE — respect

We all have our roles on this significant day. My role is to document the wedding and deliver beautiful, emotive images and deliver an experience like no other. I know when to stay in my lane. At the same time, I am 100% a team player. I am very proficient in bustling dresses, putting on veils, steaming/ironing, pinning boutonnieres and even fixing hair. Whenever you're unavailable, just know that I am here to take care of our couple at a level you would expect a team member. I am the ultimate 'bridesman' and honorary groomsman.


FOUR — communication

My goal during the wedding planning process is to ensure we keep an open and frequent line of communication. Besides the wedding planner, I am usually the sounding board for my couples and there are often times where I am privy to certain information or requests. I am great at relaying this back to the planners to ensure certain requests can be worked into the schedule. As we know, great communication is an important part of all relationships and is an essential part of any healthy partnership.

— a few words from a luxury wedding planner

Joee is a great listener and really encompasses storytelling through his lens and his clients lives.

Where do I begin? I first met Joee about five years ago on a wonderful trip to Sicily along with some other industry friends and leaders. I knew the moment I met him that we would form a deep connection not only about his passion for photography as well as life itself. His images on that trip were warm, super fun and beautifully captured. He made all of us feel so comfortable that each shot had a journalistic approach.

As an event planner for over twenty four years, Photography is everything for me and I always encourage my clients to really invest in a great one.

Working with him is a pure joy and whole lot of good laughs too. I have loved seeing his success over the years and the beauty he has created.

— a few words from a extraordinary event producer

Not only did Joee achieve the impossible flawlessly, he captured things from angles we would never have thought of.

There is something about the quiet elegance in how Joee captures an event, environments and the essence of people in general. When I first met Joee working on a large project in the Bahamas, we were literally in the middle of chaos; designs half done, things in disarray all of it just a mess. Joee had a short amount of time, no lighting and it seemed like impossible odds that he would be able to express through photos what the true form of our design was, but he did it.  As a designer and a producer, having someone be one step ahead of you is rare and honestly quite priceless.  Joee’s serene confidence is what we need more of in this world and not just at our events! His talent is quiet, powerful and consistent. We are thrilled to have found an amazing partner in creative endeavors.

AMAZING RESULTS. BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS. HAPPY CLIENTS.

I am highly respected among my peers. I have worked with some very high profile people from the c-suite to athletes to celebrities. I have had the privilege to photograph the likes George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Denzel Washington, Roberta Armani and many more in front of my lens. As you know, it takes a lot of trust and respect to be able to enter their small circles and I know what it takes to get the best out of anyone for events of any 'level'. Weddings are no different. These are all private events and privy to only their closest trusted people.

Now that you've heard about what it's like to work with me, and seen what I can do, let's chat about working together. I look forward to hearing from you.
