Bogdan R.  - Leader Photographer & Videographer / In-studio Photo & Video Editor

Bogdan R. is one of the two owners of Red Bank Studio, with over 15 years of experience in the photography field. With a family background of artists and attending an Art Vocational High School in Europe, he’s been attracted to beauty, arts and photography. Later on in life, he achieved a Bachelor in Business Management and Administration, education that he did not embrace or follow.  His artistic side guided him to totally different directions in life. In his early 20s he started to work as a wedding photographer for different photography companies from New York and later on Chicago. He gained most of his experience collaborating with one of the Major Chicago Photography Companies where he had the position of Leader Photographer and covered up to 100 weddings a year.

Attracted by the East Coast Charm, he decided to move on the Jersey Shore where fun and sun are almost all year round… Together with his best friend (Mike, another leader photographer) they opened Red Bank Studio, located in the heart of Red Bank, NJ.

During his free time, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife and baby daughter. Travelling and outside activities are their favorite. 

The Way I see things:

"Everything I create comes from real passion and love. Photography is not only a hobby is what I do, my life… Since I was a child, I used to spend hours on our family’s albums. It was my own history, my own past. I still believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. On my father’s side we had the artists. My father painted and so did his father before him. At my grandfather’s house you’d find oils and canvases all around the place. My mother loved reading and I remember growing up, hiding under desks full of books and paintings. I never wrote or read belletristic, I never drew… but I used our century’s technology to capture slices of life.

As a wedding photographer I get to take pictures of people in love... I create beautiful, stylish and unobtrusive images - I specialize in documentary wedding photography, which basically means I let people relax and be themselves, and that means you get honest, natural and emotional photographs. Using my extensive background, I know how to create a unique record that captures all the emotion, spirit and soul of your wedding. By combining natural documentary images with stunning and creative portraits you get a great mix of imagery which tells the full story of your wedding day.”

Fanuel S. - Leader Videographer and In-studio Video Editor

fafa.jpg

Fanuel is one of our Leader Videographers and in-house Video Editor, not only shooting the weddings but also in charge of making the magic happening once your video raw files get back in the studio. 
With 5 years of experience in wedding cinematography, his first connection with visual arts date long before that. He started as a graphic designer in a part time job during High School, and that led him to choose going to Communication & Media College, where he started Motion Graphics Design. It didn’t took long for him to get his hands on a camera and start to film anything and everything that could help his Animation Videos. 

The transition to filming weddings was smooth and natural, “…an editor friend of mine was having too much work at the time, and he asked me to help him with some wedding video edits. Open to try a new field, I asked if I could go to a wedding to film some ideas I had on my mind and didn’t have footage for it. After my first weddings, I realized I was not filming couples… I was filming their love ! This experiences made me wish to film couples and their story for as long as I’ll keep my passion for filming alive…”


Fanuel has now shot over 200 weddings and his style blended with our studio since the first moment. He speaks three languages ( English, Spanish and Portuguese) and helps us with the weddings that require translations. On his spare time he enjoys playing soccer, snowboarding, going outdoors for hikes, making music and writing songs. 


THE WAY I SEE THINGS

“For me… being able to tell the story of the wedding day is as important as getting good cinematic shots. Knowing how to pose and direct my clients is as important as having my camera ready to get that spontaneous moment that will not gonna happen again: a hug, a tear, a toast, a dance move, all those little things that make a difference. These details are part of your special day, and add up so much on the final edit.

The best thing of filming weddings, is that my days are never the same !!! Weddings are exciting, similar and still so different of each other. My work day is the most special day in someone’s life, and I’m the one they chose to be there capturing the moment.

Wedding photography and cinematography is a very upbeat field and can be overwhelming for those with no experience, but it will never gonna be boring if you allow yourself to go with the flow and feel the happiness of the crowd.”
