Based in Buffalo, NY, Neal and Danielle Urban capture weddings throughout the United States and also document Destination Weddings outside of the country. They've had the pleasure capturing weddings in Jamaica, The Bahamas, Mexico, Boston, NYC, Washington D.C., Florida, Pennsylvania, Las Vegas & Alaska!
Neal is a self-taught, third-generation photographer who discovered his passion for creating images after picking up his grandfather's WWII-era camera.
In 2007 Neal was pursuing to be a fashion photographer. A friend of his asked him to shoot his wedding in Boston, MA. Neal didn't want the stress or responsibility of being a wedding photographer and turned down the offer. The friend was persistent and Neal reluctantly said yes. Neal put a different perspective on the wedding and quickly became in high demand.
Shortly after, Danielle came on board and learned the basics of photography from Neal. She quickly developed her own unique style inspired by her background in fashion. Danielle is very involved with editing, album design, scheduling and client communications.
Neal & Danielle have won some of the most prestigious awards that a photographer can receive. They graced some of the biggest international wedding magazines that include Cosmopolitan Brides in China, RangeFinder Magazine, Professional Photographer Magazine and PDN Top Knots. They are also authors of two books, "Dream Weddings" & "Art of Engagements" published by Amherst Media Inc. They've also been published in five other books sold in retail stores all around the world!
In the Spring of 2016 Neal earned the elite title of "Master Photographer" by WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International). There are a little over one hundred photographers in the World that hold the title of a "Master Photographer" and Neal is one of them.
When Neal & Danielle aren't shooting weddings they are often active in their community and wanting to give back when they can. In 2014 they started an annual "Photos for Toys" drive where they build a beautiful Christmas scene and people receive a discount when they bring in an unwrapped toy. Over the years they've raised over $10,000 is toys for local families in need! They also run special discounted photoshoots for our active military, veterans, police officers, fire fighters and first responders.

Neal and Danielle did our engagement photos and our wedding. They are the very best of the best and their work explains that for them. The vibe they bring is indescribable. They are amazing people and unbelievable at what they do. the final product that they create is like nothing you have ever seen before. When we first got engaged, we booked our wedding around when they were available. We knew we had to have them. I would recommend them to any person, always.

Neal and Danielle were such an incredible pleasure to work with. Even though ours was a destination wedding for them, the distance was never a problem, and they were fast and easy to communicate with, via email and skype. We met them near their home-base in Buffalo for our engagement shoot at a venue they suggested, and it was gorgeous. They then came to Boston for our wedding weekend, and were there for the rehearsal dinner, the wedding day (getting ready/ceremony/cocktail hour/reception/etc.), and a bit for our brunch the next day. The entire time, they were just so easy to work with and so much fun to have around. Unlike a lot of wedding photographers that we’ve seen, they were never pushy or in the way, at all. They were always so happy and smiling, and the pictures that they took were stunning. We aren’t always comfortable and natural in front of the camera, but Neal and Danielle still approached the day with nothing but enthusiasm.
We received several thousand pictures and within 2 months of our wedding (I’ve had friends wait 6+ months for their proofs). Looking through our pictures, we were so surprised with some of the pictures that were taken, because they had somehow managed to be in just the right spot, every single time, without us even noticing. Maybe they can teleport :) . Neal and Danielle also do a lot of work in their community and are incredibly thoughful and caring people. We wish we lived closer so we could have more sessions with them in the future.
Regardless of how far away they might be from you, it’s worth bringing them to your wedding, you won’t regret it for a second!
We love Neal Urban Photography their photos are always breathtaking. Neal has the artistic vision that every bride dreams of. His work is the proof check out some of his work posted on our page. If you're looking for a photographer that will go do whatever it takes to get that perfect shot look no further. We highly recommend Neal Urban Photography to all our bride and grooms.
Neal and Danielle are by far the best in the business. The quality of their pictures is simply phenomenal. We are always so happy when our couples book them as their wedding photographers!
Words cannot adequately explain how incredible and stunning Neal's photography is, nor can it explain the amount of professionalism and fun he exudes while you're working with him. We don't often get a chance to work with Neal but when we do we soak up every moment, followed by keeping a continuous eye on his social media platforms to catch a small glimpse of the beautiful photos he took while we worked with him. His photos are beautifully unique and have a look that's truly unmatched in the WNY area! We know we love working with Neal as much as his couples do, and even though we don't always know the clients we can't stop looking at the work he puts out, a true artist and someone you want on your side on your wedding day!
