Cramer Photo

Together with the rest of the Cramer Photo team, Sarah focuses her photography on the art of documentation. They are always on the lookout for what’s real—the cowlick that won’t lie flat, a shared smile over an inside joke, the wellies keeping a bride’s feet dry on a rainy day. Your images from Cramer Photo might not be perfect, but they’ll be a perfectly honest reflection of you, the people you love, and the moment you’re in.

Robert Radifera Photography

My photographic style is simple. I like to focus on capturing people’s expressions and personalities in the moment. I have a knack for putting people at ease, which is incredibly helpful when photographing a bride getting ready for her big day. In 2003 I earned a Master’s Degree in computer science and began to meld my love of art, photography and all things technical. I am a computer nerd (but one with superlative people skills) and have found this to be a huge asset in the age of digital photography. So yes, this means I can take your portrait and fix your computer in the same visit.
