My name is Pete and my mission is simple: To elegantly capture the moments that make us feel human, and build meaningful relationships in the process. Hiring a wedding photographer should feel a lot like making a new friend. Your photographer should be someone you can bounce ideas off of, turn to with questions, and deisgn your special day with. Though many of my clients find me for the purposes of shooting their wedding, they reconnect for anniversaries, maternity photos, 1st birthdays, and more. Nearly 100 happy couples and a decade later, my mission has never been more clear.
Unfortunatley, you can't really get to know someone very well by reading a few paragraphs of information. If you've made it this far, I encourage you to reach out. Send a quick message. I'd love to connect and hear more about everything that you have planned (and even the stuff that isn't quite there yet). Phone calls, Skype dates, and good ol' coffee meet-ups are always welcome! I am currently booking for 2020-2021, though dates for the remainder of 2020 are extremely limited.
Much love and best of luck as you embark on the planning process!

AMAZING pictures, great service
Pete was our photographer for our February 22nd, 2020 wedding in Rochester, NY. He was amazing and I cannot say enough good things about our experience with him.
The whole process was smooth and enjoyable, from the first email to receiving our pictures. Pete has such a fun personality and is very easy to get along with and to talk to. I was very impressed when we had our first phone call to talk about our vision for our wedding. He explained his packages well and immediately made me feel confident he was the perfect choice as our wedding photographer.
His prices are very reasonable. Trust me I searched for weeks trying to find someone who not only had a good value, but had the right style and quality of pictures we were looking for. Pete was truly the only choice for us!
The package we chose was perfect for us: unlimited hours for coverage, retouched digital albums and an engagement shoot!
Pete made not only my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera, but our whole wedding party and family as well. He was so fun to be around, fitting right in with our excitement (and silliness!) on our big day.
He was very professional and flexible. He made sure to get every picture we had on our shot list, but was also helpful with last-minute suggestions. Our original plan of having the wedding party pictures in the venue's ballroom fell through due to set-up, but Pete was quick on his feet to suggest taking the pictures outside at the church courtyard across the street. It helped to take some of the stress and chaos of fitting in all of the pictures and made me feel so much more relaxed which is all a bride can ask for on her wedding day!
Our wedding pictures are STUNNING. We expected nothing less. Looking back on our special day, Pete definitely helped to make it one to remember!

We just want to say "thank you" to Pete for being everything that we had hoped for. Completely professional, but able to make us laugh and chill us out! His photos turned out STUNNING, and my MOH is already talking to him about booking her wedding next year. Really couldn't have asked for better. Pete was attentive, friendly, and a great addition to our day. Couldn't be happier! Highly recommended!Sent on 04/25/2020

Wish I could give 5 Million Stars!
EDIT: Not sure why WW says 6/8/21 for a wedding date. We were married on 8/30/19.Sent on 01/21/2020
We don't even know where to start the review... Our wedding day presented some significant challenges in the form of an unexpected downpour, missing flowers, and a car accident, just to name a few. Thank God we were lucky enough to book photography with Pete though. In our attempt to save money and not hire a day-of wedding coordinator, Pete stepped right in and helped run the point on an otherwise hectic day. He was mobilizing bridal party members, calling audibles, and was amazing under pressure. He captured memories from our wedding day that I didn't even realze were captured until I saw the photos after-the-fact. We were thinking to ourselves, "How in the world did Pete get ______ photo, when we were running around do x, y, and z?" Seriously, the guy is a ninja at heart and his ability to organize, motivate, and capture (all simultaneously), is worth the price of admission itself. For under $2K, you get the most important thing imaginable... peace of mind. Pete showed up, he had fun, he danced, he ate cake, and he executed his craft perfectly. Multiple guests approached us to ask where we found Pete, mainly because of how friendly he had been in engaging with folks and shooting folks at our wedding.
Beyond that, can we just say that we cried like babies when we saw our photos? Pete's ability to capture our feelings and emotions was just amazing. Our pictures were light, bright, full of life, and EXACTLY what I was looking for! We received around 600 photos in our album from around 10 hours of coverage.
We cannot recommend Pete highly enough. Two of my bridesmaids hope to be getting rings this year and they've already told me that they'll be calling Pete when it comes time to book wedding photography.
Thank you, Pete... for everything!
