There are not enough words to express how amazing Dan with PhotoEmphasis was! We had all our photos (1,220!!) about 3 weeks after our wedding! We were blown away how fast he got them done and over to us! Our whole experience with Dan was just fantastic. Our families loved him, the bridal party thought he was great! I don't know how he did it but he didn't miss a moment the entire wedding day. We did our engagement photos with him as well at Letchworth State Park, so we got a feel for what it would be like on the big day. We are so glad we did it because now we have all of those amazing photo's too and got to really know Dan. We highly recommend you use him! You won't regret it!!!

Dan Paniccia is the owner of his studio, Photo Emphasis- and was a pleasure to work with from the very start. He came highly recommended from our wedding Venue, Belhurst Castle- and we learned he has shot more than 150 weddings at this venue! We didn't live in the area so we opted to do a consult over the phone- and also had Dan's gallery to check out to help us make our decision. Dan offered several different packages with various options, and we opted for the Bronze Package to meet our needs. It's hard to compare photographers based on pictures, but we also used reviews here and from our venue around the other, equally important aspects of a wedding photographer- including his ability to work seamlessly with us and our wedding guests, putting us at ease the entire time, and capturing some amazing moments from our special day. He was very responsive and receptive- we had the fully gallery of everything that was shot from the wedding just 2 weeks after the big day! We are so incredibly pleased with every aspect of working with Dan, and his work is gorgeous. He is truly a skilled artist who has a special gift of connecting with the people he is capturing. Dan worked with us all day- starting early around noon with separate bride and groom 'getting ready' shots, and we opted for a 'First Reveal' shoot to capture most of our pictures before the ceremony. Dan was so flexible and responsive to our interests and tastes around where to capture photos- but we also had the utmost confidence to turn over his creative license to use his professional expertise to identify the best spots and moments to capture. He is an experienced professional who really helped make our wedding day more beautiful that we could have imagined.

Dan at PhotoEmphasis is THE MAN! I wish I could give him more than 5 stars. Dan was by far the highlight of my wedding vendors...besides being an amazing photographer, he was terrific at coordinating our group, keeping us on time, handling any hiccups that occurred and making me feel totally comfortable throughout the event. Dan was unbelievably professional and got along wonderfully with all of our friends and family. Our wedding photos are even more perfect than I could ever have imagined- he managed to capture so many fun moments that I didn't know happened during the wedding. It has been a blast looking through them! The turn around for our pictures was lightening fast- we got our full album before we were even home from the honeymoon. Above all, Dan was SO easy to talk to from the moment I contacted him to set up a meeting until the weeks following the wedding. He always responded to my emails as soon as possible, which made my life so much less stressful. I can't recommend Dan enough!!!

Let's face it, planning a wedding is a lot like reading a mystery novel; you know it will all be great in the end, but until then you're lost. When it comes to hiring a photographer though, search no further than Dan with PhotoEmphasis. Dan is extremely professional, taking time to get to know us and our wedding party so that each shot is special. He works quickly and efficiently, continuously snapping pictures so that every minute moment of your special day is captured. Beyond all this, Dan is a true artist with a camera; using the surroundings to create timeless memories. Each picture was expertly composed while still being refreshingly natural. It's going to be very difficult deciding which shots to hang on the wall! If you are looking for a photographer who will take stiff, lifeless pictures then look elsewhere. If you want photos that will capture all of the love, laughter, and life that your wedding will have, then call Dan at PhotoEmphasis!

Photo Emphasis (Dan) was an absolutely amazing photographer. We knew from the first day we met with him that he was the perfect fit for us. Dan was professional and organized but he was also very enthusiastic and easy to work with. He was great with communicating with us every step of the way, taking a lot of stress away from us. From before the ceremony, with the first look and all the posed pictures of the two of us and the bridal party, to the candid pictures during the ceremony and reception, Dan was able to capture every moment of our big day. Dan was hardly even noticeable as he took so many candid pictures. After all was said and done, Dan gave us 1,500+ pictures in just over a week after wedding. The quality of the pictures was unbelievable as Dan put his mark on each and every picture. We could tell he took a lot of time and care to develop the pictures and they were truly perfect. We highly recommend Photo Emphasis!

We would 100% definitely recommend Dan from PhotoEmphasis. He is a very professional, but down-to-earth photographer who captures moments of genuineness whether a heartfelt laugh, a joyful tear, or an intimate smile between newlyweds. As they say, "a picture says a thousand words," but I think in turn, the moment captured in the image portraying those words - says a lot about the photographer as an artist. Nevertheless, Dan's ability to capture those thousands of words from our wedding day is something we truly will appreciate in years to come when reflecting back on photos from the big day. The whole planning process and time leading up to the wedding day was never a stress when working with Dan. He makes you feel comfortable and relaxed from the very first meeting and is just a down-to-earth guy. He will listen to what you want, what you're looking for, he'll offer suggestions if you'd like, but he won't be pushy. On the big day - don't stress! He's organized and on top of things! He's snapping the camera when the moment is right, yet he's inconspicuous at the same time. What else can we say?! He's just a great guy and an absolutely fantastic photographer!! Highly highly recommended.

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.

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.
