We are so lucky we found Gary. He is the whole package! His client relations and photography skills are unparalleled. I can say with full confidence that if you hire Gary, you will come away with beautiful footage of your special day as well as a new friend! My husband and I currently live in Utah and were planning our rural New York wedding from afar. I researched and interviewed many photographers before we found Gary. We were nervous about hiring vendors and planning a wedding from across the country, but we nailed it! From the beginning Gary was completely invested in helping us create the wedding of our dreams. He reached out regularly to ask how he could help, to chat, and provide recommendations on vendors we hadn’t hired for yet. By the time the wedding came around we were friends and I could tell he genuinely cared about us and wanted to get to know us so he could capture who we were. He helped us create our wedding day timeline, gave so much advice on wedding logistics, helped us work out problems, helped us with our rehearsal, and went above and beyond in so many other ways. He invested in our wedding more than I could have ever expected or asked of a wedding photographer. He was our coach from day one, and I cannot express my gratitude enough for all the help he provided. The day of the wedding we had some unexpected timing problems, and Gary worked with the time limitations and worked behind the scenes to get us back on track. He orchestrated the last-minute preparations and we walked down the aisle on time in the end. We were unable to hire a wedding coordinator, and Gary really came through and helped us keep everything together. When we arrived in town and did our engagement shoot, we felt so comfortable and were so excited to finally meet him in person. The shoot was so much fun and the pictures turned out stunning. His skill is incredible. There wasn’t a single photo we didn’t like. Instead of just posing us for photos, he brought us to locations where we had an environment to be ourselves, and he captured our love for each other beautifully. When the wedding photos arrived, I was shocked at how much he captured. He caught the emotional moments, romantic moments, silly moments, and everything in between. The day of the wedding he also provided a surprise gift, which was so touching! When I look at his photos and videos, I feel like I am truly reliving my wedding. The creativity of his shots and their perfect execution provided images we could only dream of. If you hire Gary, rest assured that you are in good hands.

"Gary has been the most accommodating and helpful photographer! I have worked with him on numerous occasions over the past few years. He has photographed myself, friends, and family in varying locations and weather conditions. From Bridal showers, parties, family pictures, portraits Gary does not disappoint. Gary always makes it work! High winds? Poor natural lighting? Random location I wanted pictures taken at? No problem- Gary can make the shoot work in any condition. As an uncomfortable/awkward picture taker, Gary does a great job making me feel confident and comfortable. I will continue to recommend Gary for all occasions! Not only are his pictures amazing and high quality, he returns them in a timely manor. He also provides “sneak peaks” to his clients. Overall, Gary takes high priority in making his clients happy which is a necessary when you are capturing special moments. Other photographers have made me feel like just another person, whereas Gary takes the time to leave his clients feeling satisfied, prioritized, and special. Highly recommend!"
"Gary was absolutely INCREDIBLE to work with! He definitely made our shoot as comfortable as possible, and went above and beyond getting down and dirty (and wet!) to capture our special moments while we were living in the moment. If you are looking for a photographer for any reason at all, Gary is your guy!!!!!! You won't be disappointed!"
