I accept a limited number of wedding bookings each year to ensure that I can provide the highest level of service to each of my couples. I love getting to know the couples I work with because it helps me better capture their unique personalities.
Editor’s Note: for this Best Wedding Photographers in NYC Spotlight, we had the pleasure of interviewing Casey, from Casey Fatchett Photography.
Where have you been featured?
My work has been featured in many magazines and blogs. The short list is New York Magazine, The Knot, Bridal Guide, Style Me Pretty, Snippet & Ink, Wedding Chicks, Rock ‘n Roll Bride, and the list goes on and on.
Why do couples love working with you?
They love the personalized attention…and that I do as much as I can to make the process as stress-free as possible…and really great pictures…and the quick turnaround!
What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
I love getting to meet new people all the time. Plus, I am given the honor of documenting the most important day, to that point, in a couple’s life. I take that responsibility very seriously and I enjoy it!
How did you get started?
I was photographing headshots and bands in NYC. Then my friends from college started getting married, and I would take my camera to the wedding and shoot a couple rolls of film. After sending them a couple of blown up 8x10s of my favorites, they were all saying, “These are better than the guy we paid!” I looked into photographing weddings, and, after I shot my first one, I was hooked!
What 3 words best describe your wedding photography style?
Authentic, Natural, Candid
What budget range do you cater to?
I photograph all sorts of weddings, from small, intimate events to lush galas, but the packages most of my clients choose fall in the $5,000 to $7,500 range.
The photos are AMAZING! The style was just what we wanted (candid and artistic) and so many of our most valued moments were captured beautifully…in short, Casey is cool, professional, talented, and just damn good at what he does. You should totally hire him.

Are you still looking for a photographer?? If so, then STOP HERE! You’re really wasting your time if you look any further! On the biggest day of your life, don’t risk putting the responsibility of catching those priceless moments in the hands of anyone else. Casey is talented beyond measure with a natural eye for the best angles and lighting to make you look AWESOME in your photos. He’s a professional and clearly experienced, but he’s also easy-going and hilarious — during our engagement shoot, he had my fiance and me almost in tears from laughing so hard as he quoted lines from “Anchorman” — he’s someone that we would have loved to have as a guest at our wedding because he was just such a cool guy. I can’t even explain how grateful I am that Casey caught those moments that flew by so quickly or that I didn’t even know happened — I’ll cherish these photos for life. There’s not a single guest or detail that he missed — I’ll be able to look back and relive every second of my wedding because Casey takes such pride in the quality of his work. Do yourself a favor and trust me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed if you book Casey. He’s as good as they come – both as a professional and as a person. So hurry, book him NOW!

Right away, Casey put us at ease and let us be ourselves. He offered creative suggestions and appeared to get a sense of our personalities quickly. He gave us his full and undivided attention and produced beautiful, timeless engagement pictures. The day of our wedding, Casey seemed more like a friend than a hired vendor. He is friendly, creative, thorough, patient, and down to earth. He knows when to step in and when to step back. Our wedding pictures made me laugh and cry tears of happiness. The quality is impeccable and the creativity is through the roof. His pictures completely captured the emotions of the day. I can’t get enough of them. I would whole-heartedly recommend Casey Fatchett Photography to anyone I meet or anyone looking to hire a photographer – I also hope to work with Casey again in the future.
