Brian Masserman shot his first wedding at 15, armed with a Kodak Instamatic. Though it wracked his nerves to wait a week for his photos to develop, he knew he'd found a calling. A member of the Professional Photographers of America for more than 20 years, he now captures special occasions and intimate moments after consultations in which he tailors his photographic style to his customers’ needs, following his personal mantra: "There is no such thing as a perfect photograph, but there are such things as perfect moments."
During the more than 600 weddings they've photographed, Brian and his two staffers have varied their approach, sometimes snapping candid pictures of revelers and other times relying on a more journalistic feel. His skills stretch to include family portraiture and commercial work, and his senior portraits crackle in black and white, color, or mixtures of the two. After photo-shoots, he employs a keen sense of design to help customers to decide their print style, and even travels to their homes to find a place to hang their prints.
Brian always seeks to develop concrete relationships with customers and has even chronicled the milestones of one client from her bat mitzvah to her wedding day. To share his expertise, he hosts intensive workshops in which he drills students in camera settings, composition, and abbreviated editing techniques. He and his staff believe in the visual power of physical prints and frame and restore photos and love letters written on cheeseburger wrappers. They also print photographic images onto more eclectic material such as canvas, wood, and aluminum.
