Luxury Destination Wedding Photographers
based on the East Coast (but we really do shoot everywhere)
Two artists who found one another on a fashion set - one as a photographer, and the other as a stylist. After years of symbiotically working together on editorials for magazines, we found love and life in the wedding world. We balance our on-set experience and fashion sensibilities with old world romance and sentimentality.
Joel and Justyna's work has been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Over The Moon, and other world renowned publications.
I was at the wedding yesterday and really admired the effort you put in your weddings. You can tell you truly love what you do and that your sole focus is to make the bride and groom happy and to capture the best possible moments for them.
I saw Justyna sit in front of the bride for a very long time just waiting for moments to capture. She scouted the house to find places to take pictures. On the other side, I asked Joel to take a picture of me and my husband, he just didn’t snap a quick photo and let us go. (Which he could have totally done and we would have been happy!) but he went above and beyond and he took us outside to find the perfect spot. I was in awe.
I had my own wedding two weeks ago and my photographer didn’t put a quarter of this effort with us. They made me feel like I was bothering them when I asked them to come out of cocktail hour to take some pictures of us. When I was getting ready, they were chatting with my videographer and I feel they missed so many important moments.
I’m writing this to say that I really admire your work ethic and your efforts with your couples. We didn’t book you guys initially but I now deeply regret it. I wish you both the very best in your work and life together and will continue to admire you and your work! Maybe we will be able to work together someday.
