camera Canon EOS 5D Mark IV; Canon EOS 5D Mark III

I’m Debbie but you can call be DJ. I am a NYC/NJ-based wedding, portrait, and lifestyle photographer. This epic journey all started when my close friend gifted me my first camera, a Canon T3i. After graduating with a degree in Dance and Psychology, I focused my passion for both studies & infused it with my love for art, thrusting myself full-time into learning photography & building a business. I believe photography is a powerful and transformative art form and everyone deserves quality photography service while capturing a special day. I use my charisma, genuine spirit, and flexibility to help my clients feel warm & comfortable while enjoying a personable experience in front of the camera. My work has been featured on NBC News, Vanity Fair, Teen Vogue, The Cut, Refinery29, BuzzFeed, Huffington Post, DapperQ, to name a few.

camera Canon EOS 70D

Hi there, I’m Matt, a portrait and headshot photographer, based on the Upper West Side, New York City. I have a private studio on the UWS, but love shooting outdoors and on location. The most rewarding photograph for me is the one where the subject sees something in their photo they've never seen before. I love working with the client to bring something out of them - an expression, a look, a subtlety, a vulnerable, intriguing or beautiful side of themselves that they haven't seen before in a photo. But even in non-directed shoots (events, parties, concerts), I still love focusing on capturing the essence of the person or moment. Portrait and headshot shoots are my favorite because of the personal nature of them. I love listening to a client, seeing them settle in to a shoot, seeing them become more comfortable, guiding and directing them and really - getting to know someone. The true joy in photography for me however, is actually nothing do to with the camera. Seeing the joy someone gets in seeing themselves in a way they've never have before, finding new a confidence, seeing their own beauty, seeing someone achieve their career goals or dreams with their new photos, is really the true satisfaction. Whatever your photo needs might be, I'll look forward to working together!

How did you get started with photography

I got started with photography when I took a film photography class in high school. I learned to develop my own b&w film, and I really appreciated the art of it. With the transition to digital photography I'm always chasing that film look! And sometimes I still shoot on film for portraits and weddings!

What do you love about your job?

I love being able to preserve a moment in time. The art and beauty of those special moments. To be able to save them and share them with others is an honor. A photographer is a documentarian of the time. It's a big responsibility! I search for the beauty and truth of the moment.

What are some of your favorite places in New York City to take photographs?

New York City is incredibly photogenic. You can get beautiful shots almost anywhere. So, I like to take my clients somewhere that means something to them - either there's some history there, or even just a spot that a tourist wants to visit! If you're excited about it, that will show in the photos.
