“Contrary to the perception, my business is not selling photography: my business is client delight. Only when the client is truly delighted with my work have I fulfilled my mission in the market place.”
–Photography By D

Photography By D would truly qualify as a ‘certified’ graduate from the Denis Reggie ‘school of wedding photojournalists.’ Following in Mr. Reggie’s footsteps, Photography By D is among the ‘first wave’ of pioneer wedding professionals specializing in the candid/photojournalistic approach.

Photography By D is equally celebrated for being able to provide classic, breathtaking portraits as well as candid, non-intrusive, “a day in the life of …,” photojournalistic style photographs. Photography By D is absolutely committed to documenting on film all the excitement of the event as it happens. From start to finish, he takes photos that will reflect the essence of your wedding –

Brasil’s documentary approach does not neglect the ‘traditional poses.’ Should it be the client’s desire, bridal and group portraits will be made to honor the family’s heritage. Taking very little time from the wedding day, Photography By D is equally good at making people feel instantly comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera.

Dol’s quest to perfect his professional skills has led him to seminars and workshops with the country’s top ‘People photographers,’ but his work has been most influenced by Denis Reggie of Atlanta–the pioneer of wedding photojournalists.

Photography By D has over 15 years full-time experience as a wedding photojournalist which translates into added peace of mind for YOUR DAY.

Based in Atlanta, Photography By D travels worldwide.

Dear Dol,

It was such a pleasure to work with you! The wedding was better than we could have imagined and so were the pictures! Your personal approach to everything made the day go so smoothly.

We have had so much fun re-living such an important day through your pictures. We hardly knew you were there but you caught every special moment.

Your humor and creativity are endless. We look forward to years of fondly remembering that day through you’re your pictures.

Good luck and best wishes,
Lisa & Jamie Owen

Dear Dol,

We were awed when we received our proofs, but nothing could prepare us for the beauty for the actual wedding album we received today. You did such a wonderful job capturing our day. The photos of the dogs playing frisbee at the end are so much fun!

We really enjoyed working with you. Your professionalism and non-intrusive approach took the stress out of the wedding day photos. We truly appreciate all that you have done for us.

Thank you again,
George & Amy, Hans & Chloe [the dogs]

Dol –

Thanks again for everything. We’d use you again on a heartbeat –

The albums and the photos are gorgeous! I just can not express how pleased we are. Not that I ever doubted that it wouldn’t be so.

Thanks again for everything!

Dear Dol,

We’re rushing around trying to get out of town for the honeymoon, but I wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for all your hard work on Sunday! You really put everyone at ease, and know we’ll have some beautiful pictures because of it. Thank you again!

Dear Dol,

What can we say?! You were a hit! All of our guests loved you! They all said that no other photographer has ever been brave enough to get in the middle of the horah! We have loved working with you and we can’t wait to see the proofs! You truly are a professional – and lots of fun too! You are part of our wedding history – as much as any guest.

Thank you for a stellar work.
Esther and Jonathan Zaff

Dear Dol,

Mike and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did in capturing the special and unique moments of our wedding day. We will cherish these images for the rest of our lives.

We appreciated your professionalism through the entire process. Many of the guests commented on your knack for being where the action was and your thoroughness in covering the situation. Mike and I did not even know that you were there!

Thanks again for everything and we look forward to finalizing the album with you.

Laura Schanker

Dear Dol.

Thank you for making our photo sessions pleasant instead of painful. You were so patient with all of Lea’s requests. I can’t wait to see the pictures and will recommend you to anyone who needs a photographer.

Dear Dol,

From the first phone call to you, almost 2 years ago, our experience with you has been professional, enjoyable and a very positive one. You may not remember this, but you spent an hour and a half with me on the phone – long distance – on a Friday evening. Like I said, from the very first, you were impressive.

You outlined everything that we discussed in a very clear letter to us, confirming what I asked for and setting expectations that we both were to adhere to. That made planning my pictures, from 2000 miles away, much easier.

The day of the wedding, you were awesome. You were very unobtrusive, but always there to catch the special moment. The pictures are proof of that. Everything was delivered on time and we could NOT be more thrilled with the way they turned out. They are absolutely beautiful. The album is beautiful and I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone. I have heard horror stories others go through – and they end up unhappy – we’re absolutely thrilled.

Thank you so much.
Matt & Mary Morrow

Dear Dol,

We both really appreciated that you stayed “incognito” and let the day progress without artificial, staged photos. Especially the photos of us dancing show how I felt – and we never knew that you took them until we saw the proofs!

We have recommended you to several friends who are getting married. We wish you much success – you’re truly “one of a kind”!

Sincerely and fondly,
Cynthia Debevec Cavanaugh

Dear Dol,

I can’t tell you how many people from our special day have “raved” about you!

We were all very impressed with your energy, attention to detail, and professional demeanor.

I had no doubt from our initial meeting on that I was in the right hands. With so many things to worry about with the wedding, I was always confident you would do your job perfectly that day. It was so nice to be able to trust you with what I considered the most important part of our day – preserving it for all time!!!

Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Mikie & Greg Gause


Dear Dol:

Your photographs of Dean’s Bar Mitzvah were absolutely wonderful. You were funny and professional and a pleasure to work with.

The event may be over, but we will always have great pictures and great memories.

Thank you.

Gayle Breakstone


We wanted to write you a note of thanks and appreciation for the wonderful photos and albums you prepared of Beck & Liz’s Bat Mitzvah.

From the beginning, you and your staff have been the utmost in professionalism and talent. On the evening of the party, all pictures were taken and retaken in a timely manner using all the facilities for an array of backgrounds.

When I had to choose the actual photos for the album, it was a hard task to perform. There are so many great choices.

Well, the end result was a beautiful album that arrived almost to the date promised, and a family of very happy and satisfied clients.

We appreciate all your hard work. You will be first on our list to recommend for future events.

Amy & Steve Gabelman
