Joel Finnigen: New York based international photographer specializing in Destination Wedding, Beauty, Fashion and Editorial, and Lifestyle Photography.
I fell in love with the powerful art-form of photography from an early age and the passion for capturing the beauty of the world around me, the people in it and their unique stories has fueled me to continue to pursue my love of photography. I consider my love, a gift, which has allowed me to excel in several genre of this art form with specific focus on Wedding, Fashion & Editorial, Beauty, Commercial and Lifestyle Photography. I continually push creativity boundaries, try to tell a story from a unique perspective and to capture the beautiful moments of life.
Each of my clients are unique, their stories and the images they want to create. I approach each assignment with my client’s needs foremost in mind, a keen eye for detail, a positive creative energy, technical mastery and a high level of professionalism.

“Joel took my wish of more candid and fun photos to a whole new level. He has an incredible eye for creative details and modern perspectives. He captured such memorable and genuine moments in an artistic and elegant way… As I look through our gallery and album, I can re-live every moment. Having Joel as our photographer was one of the best, if not the best decision we made for our wedding. ” – Pauline and Brian, 30 May 2014, Secrets Resorts and Spa
Immortalizing moments with the art of photography and then telling the love story of each couple through the individual customization of their wedding story album is my gift to them. As a destination wedding photographer, I provide an unparalleled experience which not only preserves the precious moments of the clients’ special day, but also capture the beauty of the location where they become one.
