Do you know couples I've photographed?

Congratulations on your wedding plans! My name is Dan and I want you to know that I will photograph your wedding if you hire PhotoEmphasis. I do not outsource any photographic services including albums and prints. After many years' experience as a photographer you should take solace in the fact that I will be the one photographing your wedding. It's been said by some that my photography prices are lower than the average for high quality professional wedding photography; the reason is simple: overhead. Take a look at my portfolio and determine for yourself why one of my client's said: “PhotoEmphasis is the best value in wedding photography bar none.” If you want professional high quality wedding photography, professional service, and courteous family interaction contact me today and schedule a consultation. Need more? Just show me the reviews.

A few Highlighted Weddings:

Take a look at Alicia & David's wedding. You can also view Erin & Jon's, Angelina & Eric's and Priti & Rupesh's highlighted weddings in addition to my portfolio and blog.

Speaking of my blog, during the wedding season my blog will be your way of tracking my progress; you'll be able to see the weddings that have been completed (with a sample set from each wedding) and weddings that have been photographed pending processing and those that have not been photographed yet.

Price verses Portfolio:

Carefully consider my portfolio and the price I am offering. You don't have to spend $3.5K and beyond for superior photographs and professional Photojournalistic coverage. Many others have agreed and you may too that PhotoEmphasis is the best value regardless of price.

What's Included:

All edited high resolution images with release for the bride and groom and their parents, online gallery for viewing and ordering, fine art prints, unlimited venues, ten hours of coverage with flexibility, non-committal album policy, free shipping on print orders for anyone purchasing from your online gallery, engagement session and low print prices from 4x6 to 16x20. You can view pricing here and when we meet I will provide a full price list. PhotoEmphasis does not limit the number of edited photos; all photos are fully edited and given to you on DVD, always. On average couples can expect around 1000 photographs. If you think you need two photographers, consider this.


I am not there to change, alter or modify your wedding in any way; rather, my goal as your photographer is to capture precise moments as a Photojournalist and traditional photography people have come to expect. I define on-location photography as the time I spend with the bride and groom and their bridal party; this is another opportunity to capture the kinds of photographs you see throughout my portfolio. Your reception is a very special part of your day, from the time you're introduced until the time I leave we will have minimal interaction.

Engagement Sessions:

If you're interested in an engagement shoot this spring or fall, take a few minutes and view other couples' Rochester Engagement Sessions.

Trash the Dress Sessions:

Your dress doesn't get trashed. If done soon enough after your wedding the photographs will be included on your DVD. You can click and view a Trash the Dress session.

What Areas are Covered?

Based in Rochester NY, I photograph weddings in all of upstate NY. In addition to shooting weddings in Rochester, I also specifically cover BuffaloSyracuse and points east such as Rome and Utica including the southern-tier. I routinely photograph weddings and engagement sessions around the Finger Lakes including venues such as Belhurst Castle located in Geneva. There is a nominal adder for travel for some locations, but the travel time is not subtracted from your wedding photography coverage. I have been photographing weddings in and around Rochester and Buffalo for 13 years averaging between forty to fifty weddings per year and I look forward to talking to you about your wedding day.

Contact PhotoEmphasis:

Contact me to schedule a consultation; the purpose of which is two-fold: to understand your wedding plans and provide sample prints in the form of complete wedding albums. Because I am in this business full-time I'm always available to talk to you and answer questions.

Other Photography:
