Photography & Video

Pre-Screened Photography and Videography Services for the East End, North Fork, and the Hamptons

It’s tempting to ask a trusted friend or relative handle the photography or videography at your wedding, but that is often a decision many couples sorely regret. Coverage of a wedding-any special event really-requires a special set of skills, and yes, special equipment too. When you have invested so much into planning a perfect day, don’t skimp on hiring the professionals who will be capturing the images that will help you remember how wonderful it was.


Beyond the obvious considerations of talent and fees in choosing a wedding photographer lie the overriding importance of honesty and dependability.  All the photographers presented to you on this site have provided samples of their work are personally known to the owner of this website.  While their personalities differ and each has his or her own approach, all are what they represent themselves to be.  Whether you are having a small wedding on the North Fork or on the beach in the Hamptons, or a large sit down event at a North Fork Winery or Hampton estate, you will find someone here that will answer all your needs.  We recommend that you carefully read each write up presented alphabetically below, and visit the websites of those that interest you.  Set up appointments to meet a few to find out if your personalities and schedules work together.
