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

Agaton was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was professional and easy to get along with and brought a unique creativity to our engagement and wedding photos. He was a huge help in figuring out where to do our shoots and always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera.

When the weather on our wedding day ended up being very cold, Agaton scouted out an inside location to do bridal party group portraits so everyone was more comfortable and then braved the cold with us to get the outside photos my husband and I were counting on. Our friends and family all remarked how fun he was to work with and how he and his assistant were both very subtle and not at all "in your face" with a lens. Another reviewer here referred to him as a "wedding photographer ninja" and that is spot on! Agaton managed to get every shot and and moment without us noticing he was there.

We simply could not be happier that we found Agaton!

We received our wedding photos from Agaton a few days ago, and we are still absolutely BEAMING over them. Agaton completely captured the energy and magic of our wedding. Looking through ALL the photos he took, we were able to completely re-live the day. Each photo tells a story and expresses such strong emotion. I booked Agaton solely on WeddingWire reviews, so I was a bit nervous trusting my gut and booking him rather than going with referrals, but we could not be happier with the result. All other wedding photographer referrals seemed to produce photos that could have been taken at ANY wedding, were overly edited and just seemed a bit - cheesy. Agaton's photos completely captured the "glam" of our night, and yet, still captured the pure and raw moments of joy and celebration. As other reviews point out, he is so kind and such a joy to have at your wedding. We really did not notice he was there and could be fully present walking down the aisle, standing under the chuppah, signing the ketubah, and partying the night away - and yet we have the most fantastic photos capturing all those moments perfectly. Additionally, Agaton took our engagement photos and rehearsal dinner photos. Both sets of photos are equally fantastic - having him for both allows you to become more comfortable with him and taking photos in general, and having him at the rehearsal dinner allows you to point out who are important guests and....he just captures everything SO well.

Agaton is a wedding photography ninja. Virtually invisible in special moments where we wanted to focus on each other and our guests such as the ceremony, but somehow always close at hand when someone said "grab the photographer, we need a group shot!" Far more than a wedding photographer, he is a photojournalist. (His second shooter, Monika, was fabulous, as well.)

Our wedding took place in Williamsburg and for our pre-wedding shoot, Agaton led our wedding party around the area, guided by his eye for design and knowledge of gorgeous murals by local artists which he used as backdrops. He even worked an unexpected street fair in to our photos, which created a surreal juxtaposition of us in our 'Sunday best' and the carnival in its scrappy, chaotic splendor.

Agaton photographed my brother's wedding seven years ago, and I was so excited to have him do so for ours.

I would hire him all over again.

Agaton is an incredibly gifted photographer. He photographed my friends' wedding and I knew instantly that I had to have him at my wedding!
Agaton was wonderful about communicating with my husband and me, and with or wedding planner.
On the day of our wedding, Agaton was punctual, communicative, kind, and made the entire experience fun! He put all the guests at ease. His creativity also shined through- he saw a really cool space and brought me there to take some very artistic photos of me. I felt beautiful and so comfortable.
We received our photos in a timely manner after the wedding. They are SPECTACULAR! We received an online link to the photos, a proof book, and an adorably creative USB with all the photos. How thorough!
I would recommend Agaton to everyone. You will not be disappointed!

Agaton came very highly recommended to us. From the moment my fiance and I had our initial meeting with him we loved his energy and easygoing personality. We hired him almost immediately as our wedding photographer. He answered all of our questions and always responded promptly to our emails throughout the planning process. Our wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful. Agaton and his team perfectly captured all of the emotion and energy of our wedding day. He is currently helping us put together and edit our wedding album and it's been a very smooth process. Agaton has been such a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of photography services.

We booked Agaton for our Halloween Eve wedding and he was amazing!! We just got our proof book and USB with all the pics and they are so stunning! He was such a pleasure to work with, so easy going, laid back and friendly!! So many of our guests commented on how professional he was and seemed to really know what he was doing.
I am a shy person and usually don't like posing for photos but Agaton instantly put me at ease and is really encouraging and fun to work with. I hope one day we have another opportunity to work with him again.

Agaton shot a wedding of a friend of ours, and right from our first meeting he got what our style was. From the albums he had in his office, you can tell he's an incredibly talented photographer, a gifted artist, and he's extremely friendly and chill, yet very professional.

For the day of our wedding, he knew what shots would look good, and how to get people to do it in a way that didn't make anyone feel uncomfortable. We actually felt right at home in front of the camera. We also had asked him for a 2nd photographer to come to the house where the groomsmen and I were getting ready so that part of the day was captured, and his associate was also awesome to work with.

For the whole ceremony and reception, we didn't even know they were there, yet the shots they captured couldn't have been more perfect. We can't wait to see them!

Agaton is an incredibly talented photographer who deeply cares about his subjects and spends time getting to know all of the key family members so as to make them feel comfortable in front of the camera. I choose him because not only were his photos unique in their photojournalistic style, but he had the knack of ALWAYS making the bride look beautiful in every photo I saw. And I was not disappointed! My entire family was thrilled with the way the photos turned out. His friendly and calm vibe also helped us relax during the crazy day. Thank you Agaton!!

Hiring Agaton was one of the easiest decisions of the entire wedding process. After interviewing 3-4 photographers, what stood out most to me was Agaton's humility, talent, and flexibility. His documentarian style ensured that our wedding was captured more like a story than a static moment, so flipping through our photos is very much like re-experiencing the day -- a true testament to a talented photographer. Beyond his talent, Agaton is an absolute sweetheart. He does whatever it takes for his bride and groom and was super flexible on the day-of. I would recommend him to anyone in search of spectacular wedding photos and a sincere and courteous photographer.

Our experience with Agaton was perfect!

Agaton not only was constantly in the right place as a photographer, he truly added to the day with his quick wit and ability to participate in conversation when needed, or blend into the background if the moment called for a bit more sentiment.

A quick wedding day story... One of the groomsmen was parading around in his boxers to get a laugh from the rest of us, while the men were getting ready, and Agaton happened to walk into the suite at exactly the wrong time. Rather than run out and make a big scene, he just began snapping photos and cracking one-liners about the situation. He rolled with it like the true pro that he is, and it will go down as an unforgettable moment from our wedding day.

Whether climbing over benches or tromping through bushes, Agaton will do whatever it takes to get the perfect angle. Many of our guests commented on his commitment and his abilities both during and after the event, and the photos came out even better than we had hoped.

Thanks for everything Agaton!
