As one of the leading wedding photographers in the world, New Jersey wedding photographer Mike Zawadzki has a distinctive style that helps his couples remember their wedding day memories in a timeless, bold, and genuine way. Mike has been photographing weddings for 10+ years and enjoys a technically challenging low-light situation as much as he does a stunning once in a lifetime sunset + sky. He typically starts with traditional poses that will make older members of families smile. Then, based on the rapport he builds with clients, he mixes in more personalized and creative shots of couples based on their preferences, and vibe. Mike enjoys meeting new couples, and learning about their unique love stories, which helps his subjects feel comfortable in front of his camera no matter how shy or introverted they may feel.

Tiffany Lindner has been photographing engagements, weddings, and events for over 15 years. As a mom of three, she understands the importance of not only paying attention to the big moments, but all of the small, candid interactions between couples, family members, and guests, as well. She documents these special moments with the same level of excitement and enthusiasm as if they were for her own family. Tiffany's goal is to help couples relive their special day with each photo, and to create images that would otherwise go unnoticed. She's also no stranger to getting the bridal party cracking up and in tears of laughter with her quick Brooklyn wit and upbringing.
