I'm Armen (rhymes with Carmen)! I was born and raised in New York City, lived in the Mid-west, and presently live in Pennslyvania's Lehigh Valley where the Delaware and Lehigh rivers meet. I am an awarding-winning wedding photographer who loves to show people the beauty of their lives through my photographs. Through quiet observation and occasional direction, I photograph the authentic gestures and spontaneous moments that show how remarkable your life is on your wedding day.
My main goal is to gain your trust as a couple so that you feel completely comfortable just being yourselves on your wedding day. I will be with you from the beginning of your day, documenting all of the excitement and hilarious candid moments, while also capturing the romantic essence of you as a couple.
I want your images to be felt, not just seen, and I want the day of your wedding to feel like your wedding day, not just a photo shoot.
Providing you with a highly personalized experience and the best quality imagery in the industry is why I accept no more than 20 weddings per year. My goal is to express the beauty and joy of your wedding day in an artistic, photojournalistic, and unobtrusive manner. My experience gives me the confidence to know that we will capture all the traditional wedding images and hundreds of unscripted, spontaneous moments as well. I'd love to capture the excitement and romance of your wedding day!
- I can hail cabs with my finger whistle.
- The first vehicle I drove was a tractor - in New York City!
- I graduated with a BS in Zoology and an MFA in Photography, minor in Art History.
- My selfie just might have been the inspiration for a scene from a Janelle Monae music video and an Oscar-nominated Chilean film!
While each wedding is unique, my 2019 wedding collections start at $2,700, with most couples investing between $4000-$5000+ for full wedding coverage along with an engagement session and heirloom album. You can view my portfolio or contact me now for wedding date availability, or for elopement inquiries. I love to travel!
I'd love to meet up (or Skype!) to ensure I'm a good fit for your day. I personally respond to all emails within 24 hours (and often-times less!) So don't be shy, and feel free to tell me more about your wedding plans!
