MY GOAL ON A WEDDING DAY IS TO CAPTURE THE LOVE AND ENERGY THAT BROUGHT THE COUPLE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. WE ARE ALL A LITTLE CAMERA SHY! THEREFORE, I KEEP THINGS RELAXED AND MOVING TO FIND MORE NATURAL MOMENTS.

A

An intense passion for the human experience is the motivation behind nearly everything Philip applies himself to. It is what drove him to New York City’s vibrant milieu soon after college where photography quickly became the medium through which he captures and tells the stories to those around him.

In the years since, Philip has developed a distinctly documentary-style approach that has become foundation of his career as a photographer. “There’s nothing more enjoyable than immersing yourself in a new setting and finding creative ways to visually communicate moments that unfold between the people around you.”

It is all about observation, anticipation and timing

An avid traveler and adventurer at heart, time spent outside of New York city is usually off the beaten path searching for unique experiences and compelling stories to tell from behind the camera. Diverse subjects from around the world include Brazilian prison inmates, Brickmakers in rural Cambodia, professional Ironman athletes training in Hawaii, and residents of Rio De Janeiro’s poverty stricken and politically complex Favela neighborhoods.

Adapting to unforeseen change in each of these locations has directly shaped Phil’s approach to wedding photography. “I get really excited by the opportunity weddings presents photographers. Actively shaping variables that are in your control as well as responding to those that are not make shootings an incredible exercise in creativity.”

What's your favorite part of the wedding day?

Bridal portraits. Being deliberate and thoughtful about how to capture a bride after she’s just finished getting ready is truly magic. Working with someone one and one to make them look and feel beautiful and translating that into memories that last forever is such a joy.
