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 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 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.

Agaton is probably the coolest and most talented wedding photographer that my wife and I could have chosen to capture our big day. He chose beautiful camera angles, staged awesome group shots (e.g. of the wedding party), and was always, amazingly, in the best position to capture candid shots. This last skill is aided by his natural gifts (i.e., being very tall and slim), which allows him to glide effortlessly through the crowd and reach up and over the groups of wedding guests crowding the dance floor. The last thing that everyone should know about Agaton is that he is simply a cool guy who is simultaneously laid-back and full of energy. Awesome combination. We highly, highly recommend him!

We highly recommend Agaton with no reservations. We got married this past summer at Tribeca Rooftop. From the day we first met Agaton we were impressed with his professionalism and his collaborative approach. In addition to being able to capture the moments you would want in your photos, he has the qualities of a person that you would want around you and your guests on your wedding day... unassuming at the right moments but also charismatic in interacting with guests. For all the planning and preparation leading up to our wedding day, Agaton was super responsive and flexible. We planned our wedding while living overseas, and Agaton was available during our trips back to New York for engagement shots, discussions over emails as to timing and options for preparation on the wedding day, and even for meeting with us after the wedding to show and discuss albums. We are so thankful that we chose Agaton and would not have gone another way.

What can I say.....this man is a genius! From the moment we met Agaton we knew we were in good hands. From not living in NY but in Australia, we trusted the wedding planner's recommendations for photographers and we chose Agaton. He was so friendly and accommodating and we never felt like taking the photographs was a chore. My family all commented as did many guests on how un-intrusive he was on the day, you would never even know he was there. I would highly recommend Agaton to anyone wanting a great photographer who puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable all day. Thank you again Agaton :)

Creativy + Technical expertise + A nice person to be around (especially on a day like your wedding day)= Agaton Strom. He's the best. My photos are amazing. He's not a generic wedding photographer, he is a gifted photographer who happens to specialize in weddings. We're an artsy couple and wanted to look like ourselves in photos- not a cookie-cutter bride and groom. Agaton captured our individuality and we never felt forced into photos that weren't "us." To be honest after the first 15 minutes I didn't even notice he was there and was able to loosen up- very good for someone who doesn't like being in front of a camera. My venue was very dark and I needed a photographer that was able to work with the low light- Agaton is so experienced that I had no doubt he'd be able to handle this challenge. And of course he did. Agaton was also a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to the wedding, at the wedding and following the wedding. Very calm, upbeat and fun. My guests even commented on how nice it was to have him around! I can't recommend him enough. Thanks again Agaton!

Agaton was simply fantastic! From the first time we met him, we knew Agaton would be a perfect fit. Our first engagement shoot in grand central at rush hour proved just how talented he is on many levels. We were both pretty nervous about posing with so many people staring, but within minutes Agaton had us laughing and we quickly tuned out the crowd. The pics were incredible. On our wedding day, I literally cheered when Agaton arrived at the hotel, and my bridal party quickly welcomed him as an honorary member of the party! I honestly believe he is a trained stealth ninja, he captured so many amazing moments, especially during the reception, and you never knew he was there. Agaton goes the extra mile to get the perfect shot, from lying on the ground to hopping fences. His second photographer Jason was the perfect complement and I loved seeing his shots of the guys hanging out and getting ready. Our photos are amazing, each time I look at them I notice new details that Agaton and Jason captured. I could not be happier. Also, The photo booth was also a huge hit with the guests, highly recommend it.

If photography were a an arcade game, Agaton's name would display as the High Score. If photography were a sport, the coveted championship trophy would be named 'The Agaton'. If photography was a diet, skinny people would be referred to as "Agatons". Okay, I'm not sure if the last suggestion made much sense, but the point is that Agaton Strom is an excellent photographer. We were lucky to book him about 7 months in advance of our wedding and the cost was very reasonable given the quality of his talent. He captured our wedding day with candid photographs that had edge and personality. ...just what we had asked for. He also has this uncanny ability to stealthily move about for the best angles without noticing him much, like a photo ninja. Impressive considering he was one of the taller individuals at our wedding. About 6-8 weeks after the wedding we received our proof book from him, and he also took the time to create a bonus slideshow that he posted to his website. It was great to have the slideshow to email out to our guests.
We strongly recommend meeting with Agaton before you book any other photographer for your next event. We are so happy with his work!

His pictures are beautiful, and in keeping with his photo-journalism approach, he was completely unobtrusive. We have hundreds of beautiful pictures that completely captured our wedding from start to finish. We would use him again in a heartbeat.

Agaton was an amazing photographer and we've had such a great time working with him. From the beginning when we first selected him, it's been a great experience. He took our engagement pictures, and he had such great ideas for locations and backgrounds - they turned out wonderfully, and right away we knew we made the right choice in photographer. He is so friendly and easy to get along with. The on the actual wedding day, you hardly even noticed him (which was great since I didn't really want to be aware of every single picture being taken), and the pictures are amazing. So many people have complimented me on my wedding pictures. The photo journalistic style totally fit in with what we were looking for, and he got some amazing shots that people didn't even realize he was taking.

Great value too - he was definitely on the lower end of all of the photographers we were looking at. We got our engagement photos within a week I think and our wedding photos within 4 weeks. He also make sure to get you a disc with all of the digital files soon after he sends you the website where you can view your pictures. I HIGHLY recommend Agaton, and I'm going to be sad when our working relationship with him is over (we're still working on the album).

All of our friends and family members are obsessed with the pictures, which incorporate both modern and classical elements and are truly unique. He is flexible and affordable, but most importantly, he loves his work, which is reflected in his photos. I would highly recommend Agaton!

Agaton Strom is a superb wedding photographer: able to capture the events of an entire day in a graceful and seamless manner, without drawing too much attention to himself. You will literally forget that he is there, and marvel later at how he managed to get such a range of candid, unique, well-composed shots. He combines the eye of an artist and the skill of a photojournalist, and he was a lovely presence at our wedding. He is amenable to specific requests as well as documentation of the day. He shot from the bride’s morning makeup session to the last dance at the reception. To top it all off, he provided us with complete digital files in both color and black and white, and will help us decide what kind of album to make from the images. My husband and I can’t recommend him enough.

Agaton was wonderful to work with, and I can not recommend him highly enough. We met with him and arranged a complimentary engagement shoot so we could all get to know one another before the wedding. My husband hates having his picture taken, and Agaton put him at ease with his kind, calm manner. The pictures were amazing, and we knew we were in good hands for the wedding.

On the wedding day, Agaton was with us from the beginning until the end. He brought in a terrific second shooter for a reasonable rate, and the pictures speak for themselves. He captured our day, and our guests and wedding party members all mentioned how great he was.

If you're looking for an easy-going photographer, who takes interesting more candid-style shots then Agaton is your man.

In planning, Agaton was easy to talk to and always available for questions. On the day of, he was everywhere we needed to be; we were amazed at the fact that each time we turned to see if he could snap a shot of something, he was already standing there about to do it. With 250 guests, I was worried that Agaton and his assistant could not get around to capturing the entire essence of the party and all its guests, but they not only photographed so much, they did it so well. Our photos are rich, interesting, expressive and perfectly representative of the day. We are thrilled with Agaton's services and recommend him highly.

Agaton does quality work. We found him off the WPJA site. We recently had our engagement photo session with him and the pictures that we received were amazing! The colors were just so vibrant and crisp. We are still waiting for our wedding photos but I am confident that he will do a great job. During the wedding, he was definitely in the action trying to capture everyone dancing and the angles he shot were pretty impressive. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Agaton. From our engagement photos to our wedding photos, he was a dream. I have literally lost count of how many people have told me that my photos are "the best photos" they have ever seen.
He is such a lovely, fun person and is so easy to work with. He was totally unobtrusive and as my husband and I looked through our photos we kept saying "Agaton was there when we did that?!" We did not even notice him! Half of my female guests and my mother fell a little bit in love with Agaton by the end of the night.
If you want stunning photos from an unobtrusive photographer, Agaton is your guy. He gets the photos back to you very quickly. Also- if you book him, make sure that you opt for his "photobooth." Some of our best, most fun shots were captured there and everyone LOVED it.

When hiring a photographer I wanted to find someone who would catch the day without worrying if our chins or our hands were placed in the exact, correct location. Agaton's photographs were a work of art in my opinion. He caught the raw emotions of the day and had us go to random spots and take pictures. He had my finance and me go across the street after the wedding ceremony in an alley to take shots of us, and I thought this guy is either really nuts or a genius. Turns out he was a genius because those pictures are absolutely amazing. The way the sun was shining down on us in the alley was absolutely beautiful. I can not gush about Agaton enough. He was polite, friendly, professional, and he worked his butt off the whole day. He took hundreds of pictures, and they are all unbelievable. I am going to have the biggest photo album ever because off his amazing, artistic work. I would recommend any bride or groom to contact him immediately to set up an appointment for Agatom to document the start of your married life together.

Agaton is a photojournalistic photographer. His shots are clear and crisp. When I hired Agaton I asked if he does portraits and he said yes, but clearly I should have hired 2 separate companies. I have only 2 pictures to choose from for my traditional photo. ONLY 2. He does not pose people and doesn't set up the background correctly for portraits. If you are looking for any portraits from him, hire someone else.

He was on time, the pictures came quickly. He is a behind the scenes type of guy. He is perfect for non-traditional photos and non-traditional pictures. Don't expect a take charge photographer. I didn't want an overbearing photographer, but Agaton was too laid back to get the best out of people.

We were very clear on what we wanted in a photographer and Agaton fit the bill. We hired him and an assistant to shoot our wedding, all digital. I highly recommend having 2 people shooting, we have great shots from 2 sides of the room and things happening simultaneously.

We did not want a package deal, we wanted a talented photographer who would capture the spirit of the wedding in a photo journalistic way. We did not do a lot of posed photos, though what we got was great I don't think that's his real focus. He was willing to work with us and what we needed. He provided a beautiful proof book with his input on favorites, and would have done more had we wanted him to.

As an added bonus he's over 6 feet tall so was able to easily get up above the crowd for many shots.

Agaton is a wonderful photographer, and also someone you want to spend time with on your wedding day (something crucial to consider when looking for a photographer). He was a joy to work with all the way through the process, always responsive, always lovely, and even willing to come grab a beer with us at a local bar to make my camera-phobic husband more comfortable. On the day of the wedding, he was a ton of fun during the getting-ready photos and portraits. He was so warm that my whole family enjoyed his presence while we were getting ready. He made the wedding party have so much fun during portraits, it was actually one of my favorite moments of the day. And once the wedding started, I never saw him. I don't know how he does it, because he's extremely tall, but somehow he just disappears into the background, and you have no idea how he got all these amazing photos. And the photos themselves were everything we wanted: they exactly represent the warmth and excitement of the day, and he captured every moment, from my hair in rollers to the first kiss to some crazy dance moves. His ideas for the portraits were fantastically innovative, and while it seemed crazy to run into the middle of 5th Ave. during a red light, or kiss by a construction site, the photos are beautiful of us and also classically New York, which is what we wanted. Agaton is also great value. He was with us for 11 hours, and for a very small additional cost, he brought along a fellow photographer (also a great guy) to shoot the guys getting ready and have two people there for the ceremony. For his price, it was a deal. Finally, my husband really, really hates having his photo taken, and Agaton made him truly comfortable. It's thanks to him that we have so many great shots (even portraits) of my husband.
