Our forte is wedding storytelling. We capture the special moments of your day. When photographing a wedding, my goal is to create a beautiful record of your wedding day. As a wedding photojournalist my approach is to tell a story from beginning to end, photographing the entire event, including preparations, getting dressed, portraits, ceremony and reception. I work in an unobtrusive way, taking informal, natural portraits and spontaneous candids of you and your guests, in order to capture the emotion and beauty of your wedding day. I love what I do and I think it shows in my work. I have a passion for catching genuine emotion and real human interaction. The end result is pictures that capture the true spirit of your special day. Please visit our web site to see our work at http://aperturephoto.com

Simply the best photographer you will find. Frank was an absoulute pleasure to work with from start to finish. We could not be more pleased with the photographs. He is truly one of the most dedicated artists we have ever met. Not only is Frank a kind and caring man, he is so enthuesiastic about what he does. He worked incredibly hard the day of the wedding and for many long hours after to make sure we were 100% satisfied with the photos. His work speaks for itself, absolutely beautiful !

Frank is the photographer we were looking for, and found out was necessary to obtain the quality we expected for our wedding. He is a true master of his craft and we knew the photos were going to be amazing even before we saw them. The way he managed ourselves and our guests was as seamless and effective as it gets. It was a pleasure having his presence to photograph every aspect of our day. He even got great shots of the children during group arrangements with family. This extra effort meant the world to us.
Once we got the photos we were more excited and pleased than we thought we could be. His use of various lenses, cameras, and lighting resulted in the most stunning collection of wedding photos. Aperture Photography was the right choice and we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos.

Frank took excellent photographs of our wedding and is affordably priced, but we felt his level of professionalism was not on par with the other vendors we worked with, and are surprised to see his high ratings here. We hoped for a photographer that would blend in and be unobtrusive throughout the events, but unfortunately we did not experience that with Frank.

While taking pictures, on several occasions Frank would stop to explain the lighting and then insist on showing us the photos by scrolling through them on his camera, which took away our time from our guests. He also made an off-hand comment about his sex drive at our age, which was uncomfortable while we were trying to take photos. A few of the guests commented that he somewhat coerced them into taking headshots even after they had resisted. Lastly, Frank left the reception without indicating to anyone (us, wedding coordinator, other vendors, parents, etc.) that he was doing so, and missed a very special moment. We never received a follow-up email.

About two weeks after the wedding, we received a package with a box of photos, a piece of a paper with a link to the online gallery, and a USB drive. The package did not include a note explaining the different folders on the USB, no “thank you for your business”, which felt a bit strange considering we had no contact with him after the wedding.

Overall, Frank is a really good photographer and a nice person. We have enjoyed looking back on our photos but felt that his professionalism left something to be desired.

Frank was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding photography! He was very kind and personable, and reassured us when we were stressed or nervous. The photos came out much better than I could have imagined, and he was so quick in getting them back to us after our big day! I will certainly recommend Aperture Photography to friends in the future!

Frank is a very talented and enthusiastic photographer! He was friendly, easy to work with, and accommodating. He made sure that we had a positive wedding photo experience; he mailed us the USB and completed the website in only a couple weeks and the web layout looked great! He is very fairly priced and is definitely worth every penny.

Working with Aperture Photography was a great experience! Frank and Darlene were lovely to work with. From the first time I spoke with Frank he put to rest any worries that I had. We were able to create a package that fit our needs and budget and Frank went above and beyond to get wonderful pictures. He worked very hard to get the perfect shot and considered of all of the specifics that I requested, but also had a ton of perfectly timed candid shots. We received our photos right away and couldn't be happier with them.

Frank was great to work with! Very approachable prior to the event and flexible during. The pictures came out AMAZING! He seems very genuine in his desire to make the memories of your big day perfect. Looking at our pictures months later makes us feel the same as we did the day of our wedding. If I had a do-over, I would definitely choose Aperture Photography.
