If you’re looking for natural and timeless photos without any stereotypes, I’m the photographer for you. Documenting the heart and soul of your unique story is what excites me. I don’t recreate any particular photograph. Rather, I’m looking with fresh eyes and fresh enthusiasm to take that one photo that feels like your authentic story. You know who you are if this resonates with you. CONTACT ME to start the conversation 😉

“There was nothing she couldn’t make beautiful.”

Wendy was the photographer for our Brooklyn wedding. Because of her talent and creativity, and her combined use of film and digital, my husband and I have beautiful memories. Wendy took the time to listen to our ideas and requests, and worked them all out for us. There was nothing she couldn’t make beautiful. She captured amazing shots of all of our family and friends, all day, including my getting dressed in the smallest of spaces, both of us trekking around in the snow to get some amazing pre-ceremony shots, and even capturing a huge group photo outside in the cold! She was professional and kind throughout the whole process (as was her assistant) and her positive calm energy was appreciated during some of our wedding craziness! She was flexible and was always there to get a good shot of the best moments. We are thankful for all of her hard work.

“I loved her candid style, attention to detail, and creative eye.”

Wendy was a pleasure to work with! She exceeded my vision for our NYC engagement shoot. On the day of our wedding, I barely even knew she was there and yet she was still able to capture all of the emotions of the day and more. Most of all, I loved her candid style, attention to detail, and creative eye.

Elopements, small weddings, outdoor weddings, hotel ballroom weddings, tented weddings, weddings on the beach, rooftop weddings, and weddings in beloved restaurants are all familiar to me. Read my philosophy about weddings and how I’d approach photographing your wedding day HERE.

Hi, I’m Wendy G!

I have an eclectic group of friends and love to travel. So far, I’ve been on 5 continents and to 17 countries…  I have an easy smile and an agile sense of humor… I’m inspired by all kinds of art and, not surprisingly, many of my clients are also artists… I’m sentimental and tear up pretty quickly. I keep a film camera with me at all times capturing my NYC adventures and fun.

A couple of times each month I send out an email newsletter with inspiration, tips, my latest musings, and special offers. If you’d like to join the Wendy G Love Club and receive my emails, register HERE.
