As the photography team of James and Lucetta, we thrive on capturing families' special moments in a creative, yet unobtrusive, manor.
An alumni of State University of New York at Purchase, James studied photography and the arts, giving him a firm foundation in his craft. His beginnings as a print ad photography assistant, traveling to many remote locations, nurtured his unique approach as well as his fascination with the technical nuances of lighting.
He continues to further his lighting knowledge while working as a Certified Lighting Technician on TV and movie sets in and around the tri-state area.
James entered the world of event photography in the mid 1990's starting with wedding photography, then gradually transitioning to specialize in Mitzvah photography.
Our genuine enjoyment of capturing the serenity, love and joy of the day spent with extended family and friends, shows in each final image. As a team we continue our client relationship long post event, often meeting to help select album images with an impartial eye, and are honored when we've earning the privilege of photographing the next family event. Over the years, we have built relationships with our clients that will surely last a life time, and we look forward to those we are yet to meet.
