Based out of Brooklyn, the Amber Gress Photography team is small but passionate. Comprised of an experienced team of photographers and videographers, the studio specializes in documenting all the small, special moments that make the big day magical.

“Portraiture is my first love,” says founder Amber Gress. “Weddings were a pretty natural segue for me, as I’ve always been interested in the humanist side of photography. I’m always trying to distill the essence of what it means to be alive in a single image.”

We asked Gress to share a few of her most memorable shots with us, below.  

“Alexander Wang, bold tattoos, and pink hair. What else is there to say?”

“This bride just killed it in so many ways. She chose this Stella McCartney gown that was also donned by Rihanna at the Met Gala.”
