About Ray Anthony PhotographyI am motivated by a love and passion to photograph what is real: real life, real moments, real emotions, real people. My style is specifically documentary and often called 'wedding photojournalism."
My full name is Ray Anthony Iavasile, and I accept commissions to artistically photograph "documentary wedding stories" across the country and beyond. I have two showroom locations to meet personally: Newport Beach in Orange County, California and Birmingham, Michigan. If you are not available to meet me in person, I am more than willing to provide you with a consultation over the phone or via Skype.
For each commission, I will personally create a collection of work which not only documents the unfolding of the wedding day, but an exploration of images that reveal the beauty of the lives and personalities who come across the camera's path. An artistic exploration of truth and emotion which reveals the essence of what ties the couple to one another and to their families.
Having come from a career in Hollywood behind the camera, I have taken the good and the bad from the movie industry. I don't want to create something phony or suppositious, but rather, to find the existent and authentic story, reality with all of its beauty and flaws. I have mastered the "art" of telling the story photographically.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts (BA) Degree in Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. My work has been published in several bridal magazines and I am listed in several preferred vendor lists from prominent venues. I have photographed weddings over the years in various cities and resort locations around the country.
I have been a member of PPA, WPPI, WPJA, and ISPWP. On multiple years, I was honored with Wedding Wire's Brides' Choice Award, as well as the Best of Knot's vendor award. Recently, I was added to the list of prestigious wedding photographers on BestOfWeddingPhotography.com. I also colloborate with some of the best wedding photographers in the country on the Foundation Workshop Forum, home of many former newspaper photojournalists and Pulitzer Prize winners. I can be found on their list known as "Fearless Photographers", a name that is descriptive of my willingness and desire to push myself beyond the norm to find incredible and artistic, documentary style imagery.
