About: Aaron Spagnolo
I’m a full time wedding photographer with over 9 years of experience in wedding photography, and 16 years in commercial photography and photojournalism. For years before my first wedding photography gig, as a commercial photographer I’ve worked for organizations like Pfizer and M.I.T. As a photojournalist I’ve traveled the world, delivered photos to presidents and governments as well as supplied photos to media like the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Huffington Post. I loved my work, but it only took being asked to cover my first wedding (for Martha Stewart Weddings) to get hooked on wedding photography. I love meeting couples, getting to know them, their plans and expectations, and working with them to see this gorgeous day materialize. There’s something about the anticipation, the hard work, the emotions, the love, and the celebration. Every single wedding I cover is special, thrilling, and fun.
I love the element of discovery and the chase for the best shot. I enjoy getting unexpected candids—that’s the photojournalist in me—but I also really enjoy the fine-art wedding portraiture. My lovely bride and partner-in-crime, Nanore, joins me on all wedding shoots. We’ve covered all types of weddings: rustic campsite weddings, nature elopes, formal and high end affairs, lgbtq, Armenian, Greek, Indian, Vietnamese, and Italian weddings—you name it! I hope we’ll get to cover your big day!

About: Nanore Spagnolo
I’m always happy to work alongside Aaron. I find weddings exciting, fun, and always full of good surprises. I enjoy meeting couples and hearing their stories. I find it really meaningful to learn about the individuals and their stories that have led them to their big day. In order to be able to tell their stories through photography, it’s important to first learn about their stories. I’ve earned my Bachelor’s degree in English and Political Science, and my Master’s in Conflict Resolution, which essentially means that I love stories and value relationships. I look forward to meeting you, and working with you!
