We do not remember days; we remember moments. (Cesare Pavese)

As far as I can recall, I have been always amazed by the silent beauty of images, captivated by their mystifying untold stories, passionate about their tiniest details… Images that embrace unique moments, magically freezing time and space, while depicting the simple truth through everyday life…

I have never been able to resist life’s indescribable charm in all its aspects, colors and forms. I’m always ready for the next shot! My cam almost never leaves my side and as time went by, inseparable friends we became! However, weddings remain one of my purest delights! I find myself seduced over and over by those once-in-a-lifetime moments… capturing timeless memories… tiny personalized details… a charming smile… a meaningful hug… a precious tear… a stolen kiss… hands barely touching… lips passionately kissing… eyes whispering silent words... all gracefully painted with pictures created in a documentary style, mostly photojournalistic, flavored with a touch of glamour and seasoned with a dash of tradition.

My name is Joe Chahwan and I'm a passionate life and light explorer, trying to subtly draw with art and photography the fine line between black and white, light and shadow, LIFE and death…

Capturing your moment, capturing LIFE!

I literally cannot express enough how awesome of a job Joe did. From the second I reached out to him, he was attentive to my fiance and I's wants and needs. I already really liked his work and he has honestly the BEST pricing I found, after pricing over 10 different photographers in the city. We told him we wanted to do a beachy, Coney Island shoot and it just so happened to be the coldest day of the year... But Joe let us reschedule to a different day and change location without any issue. We ended up just having Joe follow us around our neighborhood in Williamsburg and it was magical. I really liked the way he directed us to just have fun and be natural, he really did a great job of pulling emotion. None of the pictures look staged or generic, exactly what I wanted - he's only sent us test shots and I'm already in love, he has the ladies in the office swooning over the picture quality and then dying when I tell them how much I paid. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone and I hope to use him again in the future.
