Capturing the unique genre of fashion photography, New York City based photographer Farnaz K’s work is equally about photographing a mood as well as the subject, and creating an illusion of depth and complexity by melding the environment with a number of photographic subjects. Her cinematic art achieves a desirable goal of placing the subject in the most creative light possible.

I photograph a limited number of weddings each year. Weddings give me a chance to use the skills I’ve learned in fashion photography to produce images that I know will have meaning for each couple throughout their lifetime.
My Goal is to bring each couple's wedding photos to the same level of quality as those I submit to magazines for fashion editorial.
When shooting weddings, I mainly try to find interesting and discrete vantage points from which I capture the story of the day as it unfolds in front of me. I also think it’s a huge part of my job to make every bride look great and to find angles, lighting, and moments that shows couples at their best!
