Is this your full time job?

Yep! And I love it. 

Where are you based?

I am based in Rochester, NY. Most of my weddings are here on the east coast, however I am available for weddings, elopements, and engagement sessions anywhere and everywhere!

It's based off the common mispronunciation of my last name "Holbein" (correctly pronounced Hole-bine). I also wanted to stay away from naming my business "first and last name photography" like every other photographer in the world.

Why "Beanart"?

About 6 years. I went to school for Digital Media Arts focusing on cinematography but soon found this to be my true passion.

How long have you been shooting for?

I understand that your wedding photos are super exciting, which is why I want to get them to you as fast as possible while still maintaining my standard of quality! My turnaround is generally around 2-4 weeks.

How long after the wedding will we receive our photos?

I almost always shoot solo. I don't lug around tons of equipment and I usually shoot with a minimal lighting set up at receptions so I don't need anyone to pick up any slack in that department. I can also be a ninja during ceremony and things to get multiple prospectives without drawing attention to myself. If you do want a second shooter I am more than happy to find someone!

Do you ever have an assistant?

Heck yeah! As I'm sure you've gathered I'm always keen to travel, especially if it's somewhere adventurous. Sky is the limit so pitch me your ideas and lets see if we can't make it reality!


Can we still do an engagement session even though we aren't local?

Absolutely! Check out my preferred vendor list for some suggestions 

Can you suggest a videographer?

I shoot with a pair of Nikon D750s. I shoot only in prime so I have a 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. I use natural light almost entirely. During receptions I will throw on a couple on-camera flashes and maybe even an off-camera flash if necessary. 

What equipment do you shoot with?
