Refreshingly Candid
Studio Manhattan approaches weddings with the spirit of photojournalism; capturing the natural, true moments that reflect the excitement and emotions of your day – a timeless collection of photographs and videos that will ensure future generations to come get to experience the magic of your wedding as it really happened.

Behind the Lens 

Studio Manhattan was established by Ayhan Kxm, an experienced photojournalist of 15 years. His style is creative; a break from the bland; an adventure within the artistic; and is characterized by an innate ability to be in the right place at the right time…and its this philosophy that he has brought to Studio Manhattan.

Ayhan Kxm, remains the head photographer of Studio Manhattan, and with his keen personal vision continues to mentor our talented team to ensure they uphold his commitment to quality and photojournalism.

Our Photographers collaborate to document a wedding event with style and grace. From the smallest element, like seating cards, to the magnificent overviews of your venue - no detail is overlooked… All of our photographers are photojournalists by trade, and between them have covered over thousands of events both large and small. The photographers of Studio Manhattan bring the same photojournalistic approach.

Our Cinematographers unobtrusive documentary style brings a new outlook to the traditional wedding video. All of our cinematographers have backgrounds in the TV and movie industry. With their experience they are able to go beyond just showing the wedding, but in the end creating a film portraying the characters, reactions, and moods to give the viewer a sense of the wedding beyond the typical footage. We believe that your event should be captured with stunning detail, and we do so by using only the highest quality HD cameras. Read less

I loved my photographer and videographer but I didn't get to meet my videographer till the day of the wedding. It is still a little frustrating dealing with the company who is very 2011 and conducts all transactions via email and on line. I feel like all I do is email and log in on line in order to get anything approved or done. There is no personal connection. I payed them and now I feel like they really don't care about me. Its a shame and not much effort is being applied to make me happy.

We have actually only had our engagement pictures taken thus far, and we are very happy with the way they turned out. What made our pictures so amazing were the photojournalistic style and the keen eye of the photographer. The photographer showed up to all of our meetings and shoots on time, gauged both the groom and I to ensure that the outcome desired was reflected in the pictures, and the studio was very timely in uploading our pictures. Another big plus was the photographer's ability to makes us feel very comfortable so that we could pose naturally while he photographed the moment. I'd definitely recommend Studio Manhattan to all my friends, and I can't wait to see how beautiful our wedding pictures will be...

We were very happy with the level of service that Studio Manhattan has provided. Everything went smoothly on our wedding day and we LOVED the pictures afterwards. We love them so much that we are having a really hard time deciding which ones to not include in our wedding album, which is bound to be a lot bigger than we previously anticipated.

We would recommend Studio Manhattan to anyone looking for a hassle-free and extremely personal service. With so many venders to deal with for your wedding, you can cross Studio Manhattan straight out on your stress list!

I had a fantastic experience with Studio Manhattan! I would highly recommend Ayhan K to anyone! I found his easy to contact, fun to work with, affordable, and professional. All of my wedding guests loved him! And the photos are perfect - just what I wanted. I like his style - it is unique, yet classic.

Studio Manhattan provided us with exceptional service and amazing photos. They worked very well with us, were very attentive to our needs and gave us exactly what we asked for. On our wedding day they put us completely at ease in front of the camera, found just the right angles and even arranged for a gondola ride in Central Park for truly one-of-a-kind experience. I could not wish for anything more.

Amazing amazing. Ayhan was fabulous he really knew how to get the good shots and really listened to me when I described what photos I wanted and with my "must take" photos. I wanted to run -yes almost literally run around NYC taking NYC shots- subway, taxi, grand central, time square and central park photos came out better then I ever dreamed. I got the all day package and he truly was with me all day and night. He was pleasant to be around and with my family members. Within 2wks I had over 300 on -line to view -what a great treat after the honeymoon. He was far my reasonable then most studios and I loved his sense the photos of just me are truly amazing photos. Very very happy

I heard about this place through a friend and called them a couple of months before my wedding. We had a meeting during which we discussed the terms and he showed me his portfolio. As I did not have a definite idea of what type of photos I would want, it was nice of them to show me patiently all the alternatives styles and selections.

They were available to have a second meeting for my further questions and were responsive to any calls or ad-hoc requests.
They were also very easy to work with at wedding day, and were absolutely satisfactory in every term.

Ayhan K is very friendly and professional.

I would pick them again if I married again :)

We gave their number to friends of ours who just recently used them as well, and were very happy with their work. They are professional, patient and accommodating.

Although I was generally happy with my photographs, the "family portraits" were very poorly organized (sun directly in people's faces, for example) and did not come out well. Also, I was not told in advance that my photographer would not be Ayhan Kay, the man whom I had hired (although the photographer who was sent was quite nice and took generally good photographs).
