Serenity Photo

New York City & Long Island Portrait Photographer

I am family man who loves capturing & preserving images of defining moments and places that present the opportunity for me to document the varying vignettes that mark the journeys through time from our arrival as newborns then toddlers, children, teens, adults, seniors, families, social/cultural events and national habitats and in our environments. This is my calling, my passion, my life.

My style is considered "documentary" - where the experience of being photographed as well as the final result of the images are both made as enjoyable as possible.

First things first. I don't work with everybody that comes knocking on my door.

Not even close.

It seems weird to say, but I only work with people that have seen my past work, and want something similar.

You have to really love my style before even thinking about working with me. Otherwise ___ this won't end up in a good place for either of us.

That said ___ I 'am a portrait guy. I shoot weddings, family events, babies, kids, grandparents, headshots…..if it has a face, I'll take it's picture. :-)

As far as pricing goes --- there are just so many variables that come into play that I really need to talk to you first.

So send me a message and let's connect.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

DaRooZ Weddings & Events Launch Party/Pre-Inaugural Ball

Dear Wallace & LaVerne:

We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful service you provided to us and our guests at our Launch Party/Pre-Inaugural Ball on January 18. As one of our participating vendors, you added that extra special touch to our event. We were extremely pleased with your punctuality, professionalism, studio setup and, of course, the finished product.

We would like to add your company to our vendor’s list which we will provide to our clients who are seeking a photographer for their wedding or special event. We look forward to working with you again at our future DaRooZ events, including our next annual ball which will be held on Friday, January 17, 2014.

Once again, thank you for a job well done.

Hi Wallace,

"My husband and I did not take selecting a photographer to do our first child's newborn portraits lightly. It was an important decision, who we would entrust to capture such a special time in our life, and we couldn't be happier with Serenity's work.

The shoot was a seamless process and we appreciated Wallace's patience, attention to detail, creative ideas for poses and willingness to incorporate our vision into the photos of our newborn son.

I've gotten so many compliments on the final product, and thanks to Wallace who is clearly passionate about his trade, we have some gorgeous memories to cherish always. We look forward to sharing the photos with our son when he's old enough to see for himself how thrilled his parents were upon his arrival.

Serenity offers professionalism, expertise and high quality at a fair price!" 

Best, Dominique
