PhotoEmphasis and Daniel Paniccia were absolutely amazing for our wedding. I cannot say enough about how hard Dan worked for us before, during and now, even after our wedding. Dan took our engagement photos in 17 degree weather trudging through the snow like a complete trooper. He even offered us another session when the weather was warmer if we were not happy with our photos- but we COMPLETELY were. What I love about Dan so much is that he truly takes control, knows what poses will make amazing pictures and he truly cares about the photos he is shooting. For our actual wedding day he completed a timeline for the entire day marking where and when we would be taking photos. This organized us so much. Our wedding was in late December, and the vision was that it would again, be snowy and wintery. Even though it was 56 degrees and sunny, he was still prepared to, again, trudge through snow for us. Our wedding photos came out absolutely beautiful. They, like our engagement photos, are a wonderful mix of colored, black and white and sepia photos. Now, after our wedding, we are planning on doing a "Trash the Dress" session with Dan in the snow because of the lack there of on our actual wedding day. This means, Dan has allowed himself to be on call for a snowy day on a weekend for him to drop everything, drive us into Letchworth State Park and take our dream wedding photos in the snow. This means so much to my husband and I and it just exemplifies his dedication. Daniel Paniccia has been such a blessing through the stressful process of planning a wedding. Since he has done this for quite some time he really knows the dynamics of what happens before, during and after a wedding. He plans for it and prepares for it. I cannot recommend him enough. He is truly amazing at what he does.

My husband and I worked with Dan for a total of 18 months, start to finish, from the time we were researching and interviewing wedding photographers, to when we wrapped up with our final product(s).

We could not have been more pleased with Dan's professionalism, courtesy, flexibility, and talent. What you get for the money you spend goes above and beyond his competitive pricing.

He was always quick to respond to anything we had a question about, explained all the ins and outs of our contract and how he works, and made himself available if we needed a phone call. He also did not pressure us to make a decision on the spot, nor did he give us a hard sell. However, his presentation was terrific and his portfolio stunning.

Between our engagement and wedding photos, we have hundreds of memories captured that are truly priceless and look amazing. Dan has lots of ideas for photo locations and poses. We let Dan guide us for posing and keeping us on schedule for our wedding day, which left us far less stressed. He kept this Type A bride calm by going over the timeline multiple times for the very hectic day-of wedding schedule. We also heard from so many of our guests how professional our photographer was, not to mention unobtrusive. From the posed photos to the candids, Dan is a pro through and through.

We couldn't recommend PhotoEmphasis enough!

Best choice we made! Dan was professional but fun to work with as well! The quality of his work is top notch. Dan has the eye for the pictures every bride wants. Weddings can be stressful and Dan went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We also decided to do the dress finale( formally known as trash the dress) and that again was a great choice our pictures are beautiful and different sure to make anyone who doesn't take this option jealous :) I feel for the quality and quantity of pictures we got taken the price was beyond reasonable. Dan puts hours into editing to make sure the pictures are perfect. Brides my recommendation if you dont want to worry about getting the best pictures for your special day there is only one photographer to call.. Photoemphisis! !! Thank you Dan!

Working with Dan was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Dan was so easy to work with and explained everything upfront. On my wedding day Dan made me feel comfortable, confidant and absolutely beautiful. I love the time and effort he puts into editing each photograph and all the different techniques he uses as well. We had a very full day planned for him and he did amazing all day long. At the reception he blends into the crowd and you end up with pictures that will completely surprise you. Great communication, beautiful photographs and just a great guy. You can't go wrong with Dan.

Dan was amazing! He really made our day feel special from start to finish. Not only did he listen to the things that were important to us, but he also made a point to lend us his expertise from years of wedding photography. If you're like us and planning your wedding without the help of an events planner or personal assistant, Dan will be especially helpful in mapping out your day from start to finish. On top of his excellent staged pictures, he made a point to shoot some amazing candids that made us feel that we were everywhere on our wedding day. We'd recommend him to anyone.

Dan is awesome! 5 years ago he shot my sister's wedding and I know once looking through her photos that I was going to have him as the photographer for my wedding as well. 5 years later and he even remembered my sister and where her wedding was! Looking at our photos, Dan did not miss one single moment. Somehow he managed to get so many shots from so many angles and did it unnoticed. We have had so many compliments on how our photos turned out. I would recommend Dan to any of my family and friends who are getting married!

Dan from PhotoEmphasis is awesome! Our pictures came out amazing! He totally made me feel comfortable and at ease, which is a hard task seeing how I usually hide when someone tries to take my picture.

He has a great sense of humor and talents for making people feel comfortable to get the best picture possible. His experience in the field was definitely a benefit as well. He helped to keep things moving smoothly and on time, without being pushy.

He took great candids at the reception of all our friends and family. We have great group, action, posed, formal and casual pictures in both black and white and color. With over a 1,000 different pictures on our DVD he’s made everyone on both sides of the family happy with the variety. He defiantly helped capture our special day, especially moments we may have missed. We’re both very happy to have had Dan as our photographer on our special day. What an amazing job!! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. : )

We used Dan for our wedding and he was excellent. He went above and beyond to make sure our pictures came out really nice. And they did. He took well over 1000 and is very punctual and attentive. He is very organized, detail oriented and always listened to our suggestions so we got things the way we wanted. He is a true professional in that he really took charge and had us on a very good timeline so things moved smoothly and LOVED his arrangements for the pictures with both my spouse and with our wedding party. I also have to say that this was a same sex wedding and we were all treated with full respect regardless. I highly recommend him. We also got an engagement session with the price and we loved those photos as well. He has a real eye for it and REALLY knows how to make you look really good in your pictures by knowing how to place hands, body, posing positions, etc and makes each picture unique without making all your pictures look the same. He really captured our day beautifully and if you go with him- I can guarantee you will not be disappointed at all. He also has great sense of humor and is very easy to work with.

Hire Photoemphasis!!! Do not even look any farther! Dan is the BEST! He really does have a true talent in photography and he is an ultimate pleasure to work with. He is extremely responsive and I can promise you, you will not be disappointed with your photos!! I can not stop looking at our photos and what an amazing job he did. Dan had our blog to us within 2 weeks of the wedding and all of our photos within 3 weeks!! I was thinking back to my wedding before we received the photos and I thought to myself "i hope he captured that moment"..and he did! He captured every single one and you did not know even know he was there. You would think he had two assistants with all of the great shots he took. He worked really really well with my parents, and the wedding party. He did an amazing job and I would not have hired anyone else in a million years!!! Hire Dan! He is awesome and the value you get is unbelievable compared to some of the prices out there!
