Creative and high-contrast.
Jay and Sandi Cassario run a wedding photography studio out of South Jersey. Through passion and care, they’re striving to make their studio the best on the East coast.
“We are storytellers, and the only way to truly tell the story of our client’s love on their wedding day is by getting to know them. On the wedding day, we feel more like friends that were asked to bring their cameras than hired photographers.”
What they look for in their clients:
“Couples that have an appreciation for art, photography, and working with a studio that is focused on capturing more than just pretty pictures.”
Twisted Oaks does the majority of their work in the Philly and Pennsylvania area, but they also do about 10 weddings out of state per year.
Soft and whimsical. Sincere and classic.
Emily Wren is a wedding and life event photographer based in Philadelphia whose lifelong passion for photography shows through in her work.
“I am committed to delivering enduring and artistic imagery for contemporary couples. My work focuses on capturing authentic, light-filled images through a blend of fine art photography and photojournalism.“
What makes her work stand out:
“I have never forgotten that on a basic level, my job is in the customer service industry . . . My clients return to me because I have given them my utmost attention and delivered work they cherish again and again.”
All of Emily’s packages include significant bundle discounts.
Vibrant and poetic.
Mariya is a wedding photographer based in Philadelphia who will capture (and enhance) the magic of your wedding day.
“I am devoted to being a guide to my clients, to help them make their wedding unique to their own special story. I love to incorporate a lot of vibrant details in elegant ways and make each event feel like a timeless fairytale.”
Her favorite wedding trend right now:
“Extravagant florals! I am in awe of all these stunning oversized bouquets that drape in asymmetry. I love when my clients choose to go with a really unique bridal arrangement for their engagement or wedding.”
All of Mariya’s engagement sessions are complimentary.
Dark, romantic, and natural.
Krista and Mark are a wedding photography couple based in Philadelphia. Their teamwork truly makes the dream work.
“Our style is fueled by our couples love . . . We want our couples to look back on each image and feel all the things they were feeling in that moment.”
What they look for in their clients:
“We love our couples that are fully themselves and bring little touches into their day. Our last wedding had the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars crashing into the side of their cake and it was so perfectly fitting for our couple’s personality we couldn’t even stand it!”
Bright and vivid.
Nikki is a photographer based in Philadelphia who loves cats, spaghetti, and turning moments into memories.
“I like potential clients to know that I try to essentially be a fly on the wall. Aside from when we’re shooting posed photos, I capture the rest of the day in a photojournalistic kind of way.”
Her favorite part of the job:
“Getting to witness the pure love and joy between the couple. If we’re doing an engagement session, they might be laughing at how awkward they feel and it brings them closer . . . on wedding days, whether it’s personal vows, seeing them light up when they see each other for the first time, or how excited they get after the ceremony when you tell them to look at their husband/wife for the first time for a photo. It really warms my heart!”
Nikki’s wedding packages include 50% off engagement sessions.
