I’m Lev, an award-winning editorial wedding photographer based in Brooklyn, NY.
I grew up in Texas and married a beautiful brown-eyed Jersey girl on a mountaintop in the Hudson Valley. After several years in Brooklyn, we moved to the Garden State (to the town where Zach Braff filmed Garden State).
We live a simpler life now, with our amazing sons Noah (6) and Finn (2) and our half-Ewok, half-teddy bear maltipoo, Hazel. I play the drums every day and have a thing for hammocks, fire pits, coffee from Ethiopia and vintage guitars.
Oh, and citrusy New England IPA’s. When you must have the very best, accept no substitutes!
I have the greatest job in the world. I’m lucky enough to witness tears of joy, celebrations of life and the continuation of family legacies on a weekly basis. I put everything I have into my photos, and I’m humbled and inspired by couples who trust me to tell their story.
Thank you for your interest in my work – I can’t wait to learn more about you and what you’ve got planned.

Frequently Asked Questions
How would you describe your style?
Do you have insurance?
Absolutely! Lev Kuperman Photography is insured through Hill & Usher for liability coverage of up to $2,000,000. Let me know if your venue requires a certificate of insurance.
My style is a mix of photojournalism with editorial, fashion-inspired portraiture. I mainly prefer to take a fly-on-the-wall approach, to let moments unfold naturally in front of me and to interpret them like a storyteller. When the moment is right, I also love creating stylized portraits of my lovely couple. Combining those two approaches results in what I believe is a beautiful and honest document of your wedding day.
Do you travel for weddings?
Definitely. If your wedding is less that 2 hours away from NYC then I wouldn’t typically charge anything additional, but if it’s further than that, I would just need lodging accommodations and a travel fee (or plane ticket, depending on the place).
Could we see a full wedding gallery?
Sure! Send me an email and I’d be more than happy to share a full gallery from a recent wedding.
How many images do we get?
For an average 8-hour wedding, I usually deliver between 500-700 fully-edited images.
Should we do an engagement session?
I love engagement sessions. Not only are they a chance for us to collaborate and create something authentic, they’re a chance for you to connect before the wedding, to get comfortable with each other in front of me and my camera so that when the big day arrives, you are comfortable, relaxed, and completely in the moment.
When do we get our pictures?
I typically send my couples a few epic previews a week after the wedding and the rest of the edited images will be delivered via digital download in 10-12 weeks.
How many weddings do you shoot per year?
I limit myself to around 25 weddings per year. It is incredibly important to me to give all my clients my full attention, and to be fully dedicated to each and every wedding and keep things fresh and exciting for myself.
Do you take family photos on a wedding day?
YES! While they may not get as much feature time on my website as some other parts of the day, I consider family photos to be one of the most important things on a wedding day, and I always make sure to carve out time to capture them.
We'd love to book you! What are next steps?
All that's required in booking me is a signed agreement and retainer. Dates are booked on a first-come, first-served basis and most couples book me about 9-12 months in advance.
What equipment do you use?
I shoot with two Sony digital cameras and use the following prime lenses: 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 135mm.
