Telling stories with pictures has been my passion for twenty years. For many years I was a newspaper photojournalist documenting everyday life around the U.S. and various newspapers. You name it, I've likely photographed it! My approach to documenting weddings is rooted in personal, creative, lyrical documentary and portrait photography. It's all about making beautiful pictures. I personalize each couple's experience to directly suit their needs and interests. Documenting weddings is about creatively capturing the excitement, the joy and the moments that surprise us. I have a comfortable and discrete approach that's balanced by a visually bold, fun style that uniquely captures the story, the beauty and the emotions of this first chapter of a new family history.

My husband and I knew going into the process that we were looking for a photographer who could provide us with more of a documentary style of photographs, rather than posed portraits and cliche macro shots. It was the emotion and feel of the night that we wanted to remember, rather than the details of our wedding rings or my shoes. Research led us to Scott Lewis; who else to give us documentary-style photographs than a photojournalist! Scott's down-to-earth nature at the first meeting was immediately appealing; his goal is to become a fly on the wall and literally just document however you want to spend your wedding day. We were skeptical at first that he could do the job we wanted with just one person (why do all the other photographers tell you they need two shooters?), but on the day of the wedding he managed to be everywhere at once. We got our photos back, and found ourselves asking "how did he get both of these shots only seconds apart?" For all of the running around that he must have been doing to get the different angles, he remained completely unobtrusive to us and our guests. I barely remember seeing him all night, but his photos prove that he was right in the thick of things, from the ceremony to the dance floor! For those who appreciate good photography, he is a master of working with the light. Don't hire Scott if you are looking for lots of formal posed portraits or "special effect" photos. I'm sure he could pull them off well, but his real strength is in his ability to capture moments of emotion in a candid setting.

We received our proofs from our wedding a few weeks ago and I laughed, cried, oohh'ed and aahh'ed at the magical moments Scott captured from our wedding. Scott is not your run-of-the-mill photographer. He really is an artist as his ability to capture people's natural emotions and faces is unparalleled. For us, picking a photographer was one of our most important decisions. I scoured the internet looking at different photography blogs, but kept coming back to Scott's website and incredible and unique photos that he captured at different client's weddings. From the get-go Scott was friendly, informative and flexible. Even after we hired him, my mom came into town from California and wanted to meet Scott (she wanted to feel more involved in the wedding process). Scott kindly obliged, met us for coffee and practically gave my mom the same full-blown presentation he gave to my husband and I before we hired him. It meant so much to my mom and I think it speaks volumes in terms of Scott's professionalism. At the end of the day, Scott provided us with a wonderful selection of proofs (I dont know how we are going to narrow it down to an album!!) that rival the pictures I admired for so many months on his website. If you are looking for a truly talented photojournalist photographer, Scott is your man!

I looked through pages and pages of photographer reviews on Wedding Wire, and website after website of photographers- and I kept coming back to Scott Lewis. I knew what I wanted in my photography- very few 'posed' pictures (just enough to satisfy the parents and grandparents!) - and primarily candid shots that captured moments in time at our wedding. I wanted to be able to look at my photos 10, 20, 50 years from now and remember the exact joy that I was feeling in that moment just by looking at a photograph- and that is what I got with Scott. He took the time to trade various emails with me, since I was planning from out of state. He was also very organized through the whole process, and took the time to chat with me via phone about whatever questions/concerns/requests I had.

Additionally, his unobtrusive photography style was superb- I just reviewed our wedding highlights slideshow, and spent a great deal of time thinking- what the heck?! When did he take that picture?

Above all, the pictures are absolutely stunning- from our engagement pictures to what I've seen of our wedding photos thus far, my husband and I are thrilled that we chose Scott to document our wedding. I cannot recommend him any more highly.

Scott photographer our wedding in Rittenhouse Square and the Sofitel in November. He and his team were wonderful! From moment one, he got us looking our best. We focused on doing candid shots instead of too many portraits but he even made us comfortable with the portrait session as well. We never felt frozen or posed.

And I have to say....going through the photos made us feel like we were reliving the wedding! My Mom teared up and my sisters, husband and I kept saying "that's my favorite picture...no wait the next one is." I don't know how we are going to pick and choose for an album!

The photographs capture the spirit of the evening and of our friends, family and guests and that's hard to do with stills in a world of rampant youtube videso! The photographs are EXACTLY what we wanted.

PS - he's great with the flower girls and ring bearers too!

My husband and I wanted a photographer who was artistic and unique, who would be able to capture the spirit of our wedding, while also allowing us to feel comfortable and enjoy the day.  We got all that and more with Scott Lewis.  Scott came highly recommended to us by friends who had hired him for their wedding.  Everything they said about Scott was true.  From our initial meeting in his studio up to the wedding day, Scott really took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted from our wedding pictures.  He worked with us to create a wedding package that was affordable and included everything we wanted.  He had endless patience for my numerous emails and phone calls to brainstorm ideas.  He was very responsive and attentive and always made us feel like VIPs.  Scott even visited our wedding site with us and talked through our ideas for the ceremony and reception. Also, he is a genuinely nice and fun guy to have around on one of the most nerve wracking days of your life.  From getting ready in the hotel room to the end of the reception, he projected a calming effect on everyone around him.  Scott was never pointing a camera in our faces and directing us to stand in awkward poses.  As a result, the pictures appear natural and spontaneous.  They are full of love and emotion, portraying not only how everyone looked, but how they were feeling.  We have received so many compliments on Scott’s pictures, and his friendly demeanor, from our family and friends.   Numerous people have told me that they’ve never seen wedding pictures likes his before.  I would highly recommend Scott to anyone who is looking for an innovative photographer who will capture the emotional and real moments of a wedding and turn them into beautiful art.

I suppose you could say I stalked Scott's work for a while. It was a photo he took capturing a "commuter moment" during the transit strike in Philly a few years back I believe - I felt the defeat and frustration from the image and that's what sparked my interest. Time passed and I followed Scott's work and saw his wedding portfolio grow. When it was time for my now husband and I to interview photographers, my mind was already set. We didn't want traditional wedding photos, nothing contrived, just to be able to look back and FEEL that joy and love again, simply by looking at a photo. Mind you there are no perfect family situations and yes, even weddings can be tested with drama, but that's life. We experienced levels of those emotions and Scott was able to balance his craft with the realities of our life and captured photos that took our breath away. We are proud to say that our hearts smile each and every time we look at our photos.

“This is your day, I’m just here to take pictures. What do you two really want?”

This was one of the first things Scott ever said to my wife and I and when I think back on it, no one else, wedding planners included, asked us such a simple question.

After our first meeting with Scott we both knew that he was someone who was going to do everything in his power to make our photos the very best that he could.

Our wedding was supposed to be an outside wedding at my wife’s family vineyard. However, the rain did not cooperate and we were forced to change almost every plan imaginable 3 hours before the wedding ceremony started. With a smile and a reassuring nod Scott never missed a beat. With his calm demeanor and positive attitude he was able to reduce the stress for the wedding party.

When we had to change the order of the proceedings for the day, fine.

Change venues, perfect.

Change people in this photo or add these people in here real quick, all he said was ‘that’s perfect; not a problem.’

To be perfectly honest, I think I only saw Scott about five times the entire night and when we received the photos from him I realized why. He was able to capture pictures of events that neither my wife nor I even saw, but now can experience because of his pictures. His pictures captured the atmosphere, energy, and emotion of everyone in every picture he took. I do not think that we could have made a better choice for a photographer and would make the same decision if we had to do it all over again.

Your wedding will fly by and after, when you look at your pictures, you want to be able to smile and be happy with your choice of photographer. My wife and I could not be any happier. We are now able to relive our wedding from start to finish anytime we want because of the amazing work that Scott did for us.

Thank you so much, Scott!!
