Introduction: I’m an award-winning photographer with over 20 years experience. I've been hired by the finest magazines, large corporations, as well as many wonderful families and individuals! And you can also feel safe with me since I've already received the Covid vaccine! I specialize in all kinds of event photography such as: birthday parties for adults and children; dinner parties; reunions; and various corporate events like conferences, trade shows, dinner parties, meetings, product launches, award presentations, workshops. I do not do any kind of wedding type photography shoots. Whether I’m working for a big company or a small family, I pride myself on providing very high quality photos at a very affordable price. I have many 5 star reviews at Thumbtack which confirm that I'm a highly reliable and consummate professional which is what's needed since events only happen once and can't be re-shot. Have an event coming up? Be it big or small, you can bet, I’ve shot them all. With over 20 years experience, I’ve become very adept at photographing a wide range of events such as a child’s small birthday, a corporate conference extravaganza or a glitzy celebrity studded party. With my background as a newspaper staff photographer, and then as an magazine assignment shooter for publications such as Time magazine, I have the ability to shoot with a candid photo-journalistic style which is ideal for capturing an event’s special moments--the smiles, tears, laughter, hugs, awards and touching sincerity of singular spontaneous instants. I really excel in capturing those precious fleeting moments and I relish creating cherished memories in people’s lives which can then be treasured for a lifetime, and re-lived again and again through my images. My many years of shooting provide me with a great wealth of experience and knowledge to anticipate and handle whatever challenges may come up. And as one client said in his review--“Greg’s equally at home rolling on the ground and giggling with kids, as well as being charming and engaging with various celebrities and high-level execs”. Basically I love what I do! Photography does not feel like work to me and I sometimes can’t believe I get paid for doing something I love doing anyway. It’s a great arrangement. A very rewarding aspect of my work is the satisfaction and admiration I receive from my clients when they get their photos. It’s very satisfying to me. And the highest reward I garner is when those clients have additional photo needs in the future, and hire me for another photo job--again and again. I really look forward to working with you too! I’d be happy to help with any questions or ideas you might have regarding your project! I greatly appreciate your consideration!

Wedding and Event Photography

Greg responded in a timely manner when I message him, he was on time the day of our event (daughter’s First Communion), and with his personable nature we were all comfortable with him behind the camera. He let the kids have some fun with their poses which they got a kick out of. Very happy with the photos!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I only charge for the hours that I’m shooting. For events, sometimes my fee is based on the type and on the distance to the location. My overall pricing is very reasonable and is considered in the "average" range. Please feel free to contact me for more details and I'd be happy to help and answer any questions you might have. I really do appreciate your consideration. Thanks!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Since I’ve been doing this for over 20 years, I’m very skilled at being a good photography consultant to people. I know what questions to ask a potential customer to elicit what results they are looking to receive. I enjoy giving advice on the best way we can creatively achieve all your photo needs. Happy to respond to any of your queries and offer insightful advice. But don’t just take my word for it, here are words from customers I’ve already worked with--recommendations from clients which you can read yourself here & at my website ... “Greg is probably the best photographer in Los Angeles. He’s a very talented and a top notch professional. I highly recommend him not only as a photographer, but also as a creative consultant who is attuned to the client’s needs. His sense of composition and lighting is way above the crowd. But don’t take my word for it–a quick glance at his portfolio at LinkedIn or at his website will testify to the high degree of his artistry. The body of work speaks for itself. Fabulous creative shots, and very cost-effective. You are welcome to contact me for details, or with questions.” Monica Ballard “Greg is one of the best photographers in the country – I would consider him always.” Allen Spiegler “I have worked with Greg for more than five years now. He is extremely dependable, quick and a true master at his craft (photography). I have hired him to do a wide range of events ranging for industry events featuring various Senators and Hollywood celebrities to my son’s third birthday. In all cases, Greg has been the consummate professional. I highly recommend his work and would be more than happy to give anyone who is interested more information.” K. Forrest Beanum “I would not hesitate to hire Gregory again and again. Terrific work.” Harry J Friedman “Greg was spot-on with high profile talent, right out of the box. John Daly was our talent for a Spot TV shoot and internet video, a ton of material to cover and only a day to do it in. Greg had to shoot around the film crew (PGA Tour Productions) and deliver material for the web and for print. He did it in a totally unobtrusive way and still managed to deliver great material that most shooters would have needed several days to capture and even then wouldn’t have picked up the subtleties Greg lensed. I definitely will use Greg again, particularly when there is talent like John Daly involved.” Fred Page “Greg has an easy-going personality that relaxes people and dissolves the stress of a shoot. He just has a flair for bringing out the natural warmth and personality of people and his sense of humor helps to make the whole experience fun. He has a real gift of making everyone feel comfortable. I’ve also found him to be very dependable. I first hired Greg back in 2002 and still use those photos because they were exactly what we wanted. Have used him other times since then, most recently this year and once again, he delivered exactly what we were looking for. He knows his stuff!” Patti Langdon “Greg’s work proved to be phenomenal! I was very pleased with every aspect of his work and would hire him again without hesitation for our next photo shoot.” Courtney Vorachek “I have used Greg for photography assignments several times. He is dependable, on-time, listens carefully to our project goals and then can be left on his own to deliver them. Results have always been very good and creative with lots of variety among the shots taken. He also delivers his assignments on time. A number of his photographs have been used in our annual reports.” Marilyn Freemon “I recommend Greg for anyone considering a photographer, no matter the assignment. I’ve used Greg’s services for more than 15 years, and for the majority of that time he was the only photographer I used. He is always on time, personable, readily understands the work to be done and completes it in a timely manner.” Ken Preston “The non-profit I work for has hired Gregory Mancuso to photograph several events which required extraordinary flexibility due to demanding schedules and high profile attendees. Every step of the way Greg’s professional attitude, demeanor, and photographic skill enabled him to deliver exactly what the organization was looking for. The photographs have been used to promote the organization in online and printed materials. All feedback we have received about Greg following events has been positive.” Diane Baldwin There are many more reviews you can read at my site and at my Thumbtack reviews section.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I received a BA in Photography & Journalism from The Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University. Then right after graduation I was fortunate enough to be hired as a staff photographer by the Gannett Newspaper Group, the largest newspaper publishing company in the US. I was trained by some of the finest veteran news and lifestyle photographers who were on staff there. Working on several daily newspapers in the New York City area exposed me to a wealth of experiences and knowledge that was invaluable. I quickly learned how to meet pressing deadlines and produce striking images under pressure. I photographed many large events and various celebrities and dignitaries. I’ve been working professionally for over 20 years now. I look forward to enjoying many more years and I greatly appreciate your consideration.
