Vanessa J. - Couple Portraits Client. Manhattan - 8/27/2013


We did couples photos with Roy and I am so grateful that we chose him, The photos are stunning!! And the reason we look so great is because Roy is an amazing photographer who captured some really candid moments between my husband and I.

Roy was fantastic with the places he took us to, all downtown - East Village - where we live. The photos look like they belong in a magazine! Roy was professional, funny and great at making us both feel COMPLETELY relaxed while taking the photos (so important..) My husband was initially dreading the idea and after he said, "That was kind of fun!" We are planning on asking Roy to do another photo session in the fall...I have already recommended 3 friends (1 for family photos and 2 for couples photos) because they were so stunned when I showed them JUST A FEW of the pictures Roy took.

If you are in the market for photos and want to capture the way you look at each other, or how happy you are, or how you feel about each other, I highly recommend Roy. I haven't stopped looking at the photos since he gave them to us 3 months ago!! We are so happy with the pictures we already have another shoot planned for the fall.AMAZING TALENT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. WITHOUT RESERVATION.
