It is my objective to capture the uniqueness of you, the genuine love you feel and people you care most about. My style is that I work very quietly in the background to capture the spontaneous moments that are the foundation of any meaningful experience. I love all the creativity and care that go into the details of a wedding and feel honored to capture the story of your day.

If I were to use one word to describe how I can be most valuable to my clients it is that I am flexible. I work with you so that you can have your wedding exactly the way you want it. I meet with you before the wedding to discuss your needs and desires so that your expectations can successfully be met. Read less

I cannot recommend Agaton enough! From the moment I met him he was kind, professional, and incredibly thoughtful. My husband and I would have invited him to our wedding had we not hired him as our photographer! He was so mindful of expenses and really reasonable given how absolutely amazing his photography is.

Our engagement shoot was really fun. Agaton totally worked with us in terms of going to all the places in our neighborhood that are special to us. He has a great eye for light and backgrounds that will look incredible in photos. He is also daring --- standing in the middle of the street as cars come or hanging off a railing over the Hudson River to capture the perfect shot. He edited the engagement photos and got them to us REALLY QUICKLY. We loved our engagement pictures so much!

As the wedding approached, Agaton helped plan the timing of the day and emailed back and forth with me to answer all of my questions. On the day of the wedding Agaton came over while I was getting ready. He fit right in with my family and captured tons of beautiful shots without me ever noticing he was taking pictures. His assistant was incredible as well and talked me through some excitement tears and I was waiting to come downstairs for our first look. Everyone who took pictures with us before the wedding loved Agaton and his assistant and kept commenting how wonderful they were. Throughout the actual wedding I really didn’t notice them around at all but was amazed by all the fabulous shots they got without me ever realizing that the pictures were being taken.

Agaton is incredibly flexible and was such a fabulous addition to our wedding day. Weeks after our wedding, I ran into Agaton on the street and it felt like I was seeing an old friend. He really surpassed all expectations for what a wedding photographer should be! I now follow Agaton’s work and regularly check his blog for new photos. He is really the best!

Agaton was so wonderful to work with and a pleasure to have there on or wedding day. All of our family/bridal party commented on how delightful he was. I work in the wedding industry and know many photographers but Agaton stands out from all the rest and his work speaks for itself.

Agaton was an essential part of our wedding. From our first meeting, he was calm, professional, and so easy to work with. Our engagement photos look like a magazine spread; they are absolutely incredible. At our wedding, Agaton managed to capture shots of our guests that are quintessentially "them." We are so lucky to have these photos. In fact, it's been really hard to choose which to put in an album! I couldn't recommend him more highly.

Agaton was wonderful to work with before during and after our wedding. He gave us memories of our wedding that will last forever. We also did an engagement shoot with him and have great shots from that as well. Agaton is a consummate professional and is extremely reliable. He made a plan with us for timing of pictures and was present and ready to go exactly when he said he would be. At our event, Agaton wasn't intrusive, yet he was able to document the whole event, getting the important moments, without making himself a focal point. One of the best things about working with Agaton is that he is an extremely talented and detail oriented photographer. He tries to get at least one photo of everyone that attends your wedding. His style is modern and photojournalistic which gives it a very current and fresh feel, in addition to any staged and formal shots. Most importantly, Agaton is fun to work with and makes everyone feel comfortable so that there is no awkwardness, particularly while doing more posed shots, which can sometimes be awkward. Additionally, he was able to deliver proofs after the wedding and engagement shoots with super-fast turnaround times. All proofs are provided via a password protected link on his website which makes it easy to view and save the photos. You also have the ability to create lightboxes and mini galleries where you can choose specific pictures to share with others. It was a pleasure to work with Agaton. He truly captured the emotion, the joy, the fun of our wedding in our pictures. We recommend without question and with the highest regard.

FIVE STARS!… I cannot recommend Agaton highly enough. He was extremely professional, looked smart, and we chatted easily throughout the photo session and even stopped for a beer during the shoot, (it was a hot day!) and found out we actually had similar tastes in music and bands. It was just myself and my partner as we had eloped to New York from England to get married and booked Agaton via email. He was quick to respond and kept in touch regularly during the build-up to the big day. As it was just the two of us Agaton kindly agreed to be our witness during our wonderful ceremony in Central park. He was very open to our ideas of wanting some graffiti backdrops to the photos, which he captured perfectly – his eye for composition is great, he said he loved the idea of the glamour of a wedding contrasted with the old graffiti. We know a little about photography and appreciated that he captured the perfect lighting too, whether we were indoors or out. You will not regret booking Agaton, all our friends and family have said our wedding photos are amazing!

Agaton was an absolute joy to work with. Not only is he the kindest, most easy-going, and generous individual, but he is an incredibly professional and talented photographer. He made me and my husband feel completely at ease during our photo session and then somehow completely disappeared during the wedding (in a good way, as in we never noticed his presence), while capturing every single beautiful moment throughout the night. Post-wedding, the turnaround time for receiving all of our digital photos was shockingly quick. We also added a photo booth which was really fun - glad we included it. My entire family is thrilled with the shots and we are so happy to have had our special day documented by Agaton. I wish we had an excuse to work with him again!

My best friend worked with Agaton for her wedding, and I experienced his easygoing manner and professionalism when he was photographing the bridal party. When it came time to choose a photographer for my wedding, I knew I wanted to work with Agaton. I had seen her photos and loved how they turned out, and I knew he had a unobtrustive way of working that would capture the best pictures for our wedding. His photojournalist-style was exactly what I was looking for from my wedding photographer. He is very responsive and easy to work with; we also had the pictures within a month after our wedding!

Agaton was referred to us through our awesome wedding planner (Christine at Exquisite Affairs Productions) and he was amazing! He is truly everything you want in a wedding photographer-- he has an unobtrusive personality, a kind spirit, an incredible eye, and impressive editing skills. From the moment we met him we felt comfortable with him and we feel so lucky to have had him photograph our wedding. Somehow he was able to get shots of literally every single guest that attended while not missing any of the special moments between me and my husband. We just got our photos back and we could not be happier! He's so awesome!!

Agaton was a delight to work with throughout the entire wedding planning process. When we first met with him, we weren't really sure what we wanted (other than nice photos that looked natural), and he was extremely courteous and helpful. His suggestions were almost always exactly what we were hoping for, and on the big day he came through at every point. His greatest skill was in capturing moments as they were happening, whether it was perfect action shots of our friends dancing, or isolated moments with just the two of us- nothing looked staged, and every time we look at our photos it feels like we are watching something as it happens. We cannot recommend Agaton highly enough.

Agaton is a brilliant photographer. He loves what he does and is extremely talented, with not only an amazing eye but a rare wit and thoughtfulness to his work/images. Throughout the whole process and on the day of, he was a calming force, with a laid-back, steady and sure manner that put us and our guests at complete ease. He was responsive, organized and knowledgeable. He listened carefully to our ideas and vision, and once he had a feel for who we were and what we wanted, came up with fresh creative ideas for shots.

As I’m now learning, photos not only keep your memories of the day sharp, but actually help shape them in your mind. In a preliminary set of images, I saw that Agaton had captured moments that had flown by or moments we hadn’t realized were occurring. Looking at these images brought back the range of emotions I experienced on the day, from joyful and exuberant to sweet and meaningful. The images were authentic and beautifully rendered, nothing cheesy or overly stylized. It told OUR story in the most clear, gorgeous way.
