My name is Joshua Lawrence Kogan and I'm excited to welcome you to Studio JLK. New York City wedding couples gravitate to Studio JLK for the fresh editorial feeling of our imagery and the unparalleled craftsmanship of our hand-bound wedding albums. With gorgeous lighting, saturated colors and modern cinematic frames, we'll capture the beauty, humor and energy that celebrates and defines your singular love story.
Every photographer has a unique photographic voice, and mine has a French accent. I lived and worked as a Fashion, Beauty and Travel photographer in Paris for over 10 years, shooting editorial and cover assignments for magazines like Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, G.Q., Marie Claire, Glamour, and brands like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Billabong and Guess Jeans. It was in Paris that I became Valentino's personal photographer, capturing 5 years of the Designer's fashion shows and private parties. Soon Fashion Editors, Socialites, Actresses and Personalities began hiring me to photograph their events and eventually, their weddings. This is how my love affair with wedding photography and wedding films began.
Years later I bring that same European fashion and beauty photographer's sensibility to every wedding and event my team and I capture, and it's what makes Studio JLK wedding imagery so special. Whether we're capturing a tropical destination wedding or a more sophisticated city invitation, our wedding couples and their guests become our friends, skiing buddies, travel companions and cooking advisors. This is why each wedding we capture has the intimacy and feeling of photographing a friend's wedding. With this mindset we're always sure to have fun with our wedding couples, and their families, and the pictures just flow.
We'd love to know more about your love story and what you're planning for your special day. Stop by the studio for a cup of your favorite tea and to take a peek at our award-winning wedding albums. Give us a call or send an email. Looking forward to meeting you!

On behalf of Yves-Andre and our entire family, we are so thankful for these wonderful pictures! Yves’ induction into the French Legion d’Honneur was a very special occasion for all of us and Joshua's photographs really told the story of an evening we are all so proud of. The family portraits he made in our home the following day are full of warmth and humor and we couldn't be happier. Merci Joshua!

We had a blast working with Joshua and are now having way to much fun looking through our engagement photos! Its so hard to pick our favorites! We both live and work in the financial district of NYC so we chose our neighborhood as the backdrop for our engagement session. Joshua scouted some great locations and was so organized. He knew exactly where to go and what he wanted to do there. At one point we stumbled on a large group of Japanese tourists from Osaka. They were standing in the spot Joshua wanted to shoot, but instead of asking them to move he engaged them, and seconds later we were making one of the best shots of the day surrounded by 30 smiling/laughing Japanese tourists. I don't know who was having more fun, us or the tourists, but actually I think it was Joshua. He just loves what he does so much. This was such a great experience!!
