Welcome!

 

We are Bruce and Wanda Curtis, fine art, wedding and lifestyle photographers. We are the owners and photographers of Imagine! Photography & Design and have been photographing weddings, portraits & events in the greater New York area since 1997. We have been married for 26 years, so we know what marriage is all about. We remember our own wedding as if it was yesterday. Still to this day, it has been the biggest event we have ever planned together and one of the happiest days in our lives. We take photographs that turn heads, evoke emotion, and tell a love story. We love natural light, creative details, sweet moments and genuine laughter. Capturing amazing images and serving our clients is our passion. We believe that because we are really in love, we are able to capture the love of our couples in a real way. We love bowling, traveling, coffee and our little beagle, Vega who just turned 7 years old.

Our passion is to show every subject in the best light possible. We shape our portraits to be beautiful and revealing while the documentary part of our work is hands off allowing the situations to shape the images thus creating truthful images full of real moments. We want our clients to be at ease because the best pictures happen when people feel free to be themselves! With every client uniquely different from the next we strive to know each client personally to create a photograph that reveals who they really are. With our unobtrusive approach to photographing we will create and capture those little moments that sometimes get overlooked.

We have had the honor of photographing weddings in all religions, races and nationalities. We've had the pleasure of traveling to different States and even the Caribbean to photograph. We specialize in wedding photography but also love photographing newborns, children, families, pets and high school seniors. We love being married, photography and our clients. Once you have the opportunity to visit with us, you will immediately see the passion and love for what we do.

Katie & John - October 8th, 2016 - Glen Sanders Mansion

 

Katie and John said... One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was hiring Bruce and Wanda of Imagine Photography and Design to capture our day. We could tell right away the dynamic between Bruce and Wanda was great and that we would be in good hands for our wedding. Their experience and talent is without question. From the engagement photos, the early stages of planning and the wedding day itself, everything was perfect. They were able to determine exactly what we wanted, knew what questions to ask and executed on those plans. The pictures they captured were just absolutely stunning. Our family and friends could not get over how great the photos were. The traditional shots at the church with family and the bridal party were perfect. Bruce and Wanda were efficient and well-organized to get all of the family shots posed and the photos taken so as not to waste any precious time between the ceremony and the reception. Their experience in capturing weddings in the Capital Region is evident as they knew the perfect areas to take the bride/groom shots and the bridal party shots before arriving at the venue and at the venue itself. Our reception was at Glen Sander’s Mansion in Scotia and we took bridal party shots in the Stockade District in Schenectady before the reception. Bruce and Wanda scouted the area days before the wedding and the location they chose was perfect for our wedding colors. Those pictures were just breath taking; it was like the location had been built just for our group of people. The photos taken at the cocktail hour, reception and during the party were also amazing. They were in the middle of the action and captured incredible group shots and party shots. Bruce and Wanda captured the entire day perfectly and now we have these brilliant photos to remember our wedding day for years to come. We would highly recommend Bruce and Wanda of Imagine Photography and Design for your engagement photos and for your wedding day.

It all starts here with your engagement session, having the opportunity to be professionally photographed prior to your wedding day. Our approach is hands off, capturing those candid moments between the couple, holding hands, taking a stroll in the woods or cuddling under a blanket as you both view a beautiful sunset together. 

We would be honored to document your "Love Story" from the beginning. Take that first step... and we promise to create and capture amazing moments of your engagement session and wedding day!

For more than 20 years parents have entrusted us to capture images of their newborn babies and we love every minute of it! Yes there is crying and even poop happens but there is nothing more adorable than a 3 day old sleeping comfortably in their mother's arms. We offer no stress sessions in the comfort of your own home, usually newborn sessions can take up to two hours, so we bring plenty of patience! We love when we have the opportunity to capture these moments for the parents and their families. Many of our newborn clients are past bride & grooms and have already witnessed the care that we take in our photography.

We promise to take great care in handling and photographing your newborn. From those tiny little toes, to those naked bottoms, we are sure to capture images that will freeze time and let you cherish those memories whenever you are ready to reminisce!
