If you want wedding, event, or family photos that put you right back into that second, a photojournalistic style of photography with natural posing is probably for you. I’m Manuel Montenegro, owner of Montenegro Photography, I’m based in New York most of my work is in and around NYC, and New Jersey. My style is clean, vibrant, and emotive, capturing the natural energy of a moment without interfering with your pleasure in the day. I’ve developed this feeling-driven approach through endless dedication to honing my craft with workshops, books, and industry networking that help me develop my eye.
A hobbyist who turned into a professional through intense study and experimentation, I live a double life as both an accountant and a photographer – reliability, and awareness of small details help me excel at both! I’m married to my best friend, and we are raising three children – the eldest of whom is learning to use a camera of her own. My love of movies with well-told plots also bolsters my photojournalistic instinct for framing up the perfect scene.
As your wedding photographer, I can offer a responsible yet relaxed personality that lets you feel unhurried, so your best self shows in your photos. Couples about to be married appreciate knowing their wedding photographer has everything well in hand, and the whole family will be pleased with my investment in learning about your traditions and discovering what makes a day special for you. I strive to be unobtrusive, working around your plan for the party or event and letting those spontaneous moments occur. It’s when you’re comfortable and free of distractions, celebrating your special day and making meaningful memories that the best photo ops happen.
