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

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!

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!

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!!

Words cannot describe how fabulous it was to work with Agaton for our wedding. The photos were spectacular--and that was of course our main objective in choosing Agaton.

What we didn't realize is just how awesome Agaton was! We met with him a couple of times before the wedding, and let's be honest here, it's a little strange to spend this huge day in your life with someone you don't know all that well, along with your spouse and all the other craziness. But wow! If there's anyone you want to spend this day with to help put you at ease and make you and your spouse have a good time during a magical, but stressful time, Agaton and his second shooter are the people!

Really, having a personable, nice photographer with skills at managing people on a whirlwind of a day is something that you can't stress enough. A great photographer is important, but you will really get the best photographs if you combine the qualities of a great photographer with someone who makes you feel comfortable. That comfort comes across in the photos!! And you want to have fun on your wedding day!

He is wonderfully nice and easy to work with, indulged our whims, but had lots of suggestions for how to do things. He also just put everyone at ease. No complaints from him, and definitely none from us about our experience.

I haven't yet said enough about the actual photos--we had a lot of fun taking portraits, and Agaton was willing to go to great lengths to capture the right shots, and we couldn't be happier with the photos. It really was the one thing that was most important to me--flowers die, and the random decorations and escort cards that you rip your hair out to get JUST RIGHT all get thrown out, but the photos are FOREVER! So we looked at a bunch of photographers and got the recommendation for Agaton, and are so happy we took it. The photos have a great mixture of seriousness to reflect the magnitude of the day with the whimsy that we were going for.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Agaton was great! Our pictures looked lovely (and we're not actually that attractive). He was also a joy to work with (even though at times I know we weren't). We got our photos back pretty early and were thrilled with how they look. If you like his shooting style then you should have no qualms about selecting him as he is professional, understanding, and just a great guy! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Agaton was the most upbeat, creative, professional and flexible photographer we met during our search. He came prepared with great ideas, and was also completely open to all of our own. His modern yet timeless style and his ability to capture unique, intimate moments that don't feel at all cliché or staged quickly made him our top choice. We're thrilled with the results and would recommend him to anyone.

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!
