307 W. 38th St., nr. Eighth Ave., Ste. 1418; 212-724-1790;

Couples seek out this company for its lead photographer’s high-fashion sensibility: Wolfgang Freithof has captured Claudia Schiffer, Iman, and Naomi Campbell for magazines such as Vogue.

265 Canal St., nr. Lafayette St., Ste. 206; 917-306-7014;

Full-day packages start at $7,000. Special rates available for City Hall weddings.

Angelica Glass Photography


This bicoastal shutterbug promises to capture “incredibly sexy, frighteningly real, and hysterically awkward” images on your wedding day, which sounds potentially risky but actually nets astonishing results (think candid shots of groomsmen doing backflips on the beach and guests double-fisting wineglasses while dancing). The portraiture is also beautifully composed: Picture a tattooed bride vogueing amid Times Square tourists. Prices start at $4,500.
