A wise man once said: “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”. For me, photography is more than a career; it is a vital part of who I am. I was introduced to the art of photography at a very early age. My late Grandfather, Fred Marcus, and my Father, Andy Marcus are both highly celebrated photographers who instilled in me a great passion and wisdom for the craft. I photograph more than 50 weddings a year, capturing every stage of the celebration, from the excitement of getting ready, to the anticipation of the first look, and of course the ceremony, the party and everything in between. I love the discovery of small moments and simple gestures, which are often overlooked in the excitement of a big day. Fine details, like the tear in a father’s eye or a grandparent’s loving glance, are rare gems which should be honored and preserved in the best possible light. Whether the day brings a high-profile wedding, an intimate family gathering, or a young boy’s Bar Mitzvah, I regard every new event as the most important I have ever done. I’ve photographed celebrity weddings like Lebron James & Savannah Brinson, Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner, as well as Eddie Murphy, Kelsey Grammar and Mike Tyson, to name a few. Besides my wedding work, I have been working on a personal project to preserve the memory of the last remaining Holocaust survivors in the New York, New Jersey area and plan on publishing a book in 2014. My camera and I have been all over the globe from Malawi to Brazil, South Africa, Japan, Italy, France and the Caribbean Islands. My passion for photography doesn’t keep me solely behind the lens. I have also created a tool for professional image-makers, the GL-1 hot light (www.gl1hotlight.com). The most important aspect of my job is to learn as much as I can about your style and vision so that I can create the perfect environment to bring your dream to life. Your event, your wedding day, your portrait session- whatever your moment is becomes your chance to shine. My responsibility is to make that happen seamlessly and effortlessly with photos and memories to last a lifetime. I’m looking forward to meeting you and hearing all about the exciting things happening in your life.
