“We cannot recommend Keith enough. He is an absolute joy to work with: he is responsive, thoughtful, and truly wants to get a sense of who you are. He is incredibly professional about everything he does. On top of everything, his pictures are OUTSTANDING. We (and everyone we have showed them too) could not be happier with the pictures from our wedding day. They are beautiful and full of emotion, fully capturing the entire day even better than a movie. On the wedding day itself, he really made us feel more relaxed. He was calm and focused–and his love of his work is readily apparent. He was very flexible throughout the wedding day, but also familiar with the flow of events so that he didn’t miss anything. His photos include a perfect balance of portraits and candids. He captured so many things we didn’t even know were happening. We will truly treasure his pictures of our wedding forever and we could not be happier”
Keith has been shooting professionally for fifteen years. He has shot hundreds of weddings. He began as a photojournalist in the late 90’s shooting for newspapers and wire services. He received his Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Photography from SUNY New Paltz in 2000. He has worked for amazing commercial clients and individual clients. Keith was the Staff Photographer at The Culinary Institute of America for five years. There he photographed everything from cookbooks to graduations. He handled all of the college’s marketing photography and managed the in-house photo studio. He also worked with the media department by providing photography for press releases and media requests. So he’s very comfortable shooting food and working with chefs as well as working in an educational environment. Keith is also very adept with studio lighting both in the studio and on location for food photography and product photography.
“My approach to wedding photography is simple. I try to get to know the couple before the wedding so they’re comfortable being photographed. On the day of the wedding I work very discreetly and unobtrusively. My priority, aside from getting great photos, is that the couple has the best day of their lives.”
Keith is constantly learning and improving his technique and is always looking forward to the next assignment.
