Joseph Aczel is a storyteller with a camera. He has documented events all over the United States, photographed movie stars and prime ministers, and brings his passion for capturing unique moments to your wedding.

Joseph began his professional photographic career in 1987. As a staff photographer for several Boston area newspapers, he won state and regional awards for his work, and was invited to attend the prestigious Eddie Adams Workshop, the only merit-based photojournalism seminar in the world. In 2001, he moved to Atlanta and brought his award-winning style to the world of wedding photography.

Joseph is thrilled to be invited to creatively document the most intimate and special event in a couple's life. His style is informed by his long experience as an award winning photojournalist, recording events with an artist’s eye for movement and detail. He believes that the best moments are unexpected, and these are what he anticipates and captures. With an uncommon eye he makes relaxed and beautiful portraits that allow your personalities to shine. His goal is to make images that will evoke a rush of emotion and memory when you look at them years after your wedding day.

Joseph is also the staff photographer for Atlanta Life magazine and his images appear in Modern Bride, Jezebel, Doggie Aficionado and other national and local publications. He lives in Morningside with his three year old daughter Arden.
