Baiada Photography is a Father and Son team with exemplary attention to detail. They strive to capture more than just the wedding as a whole, but the intimate moments between individuals. Tony Baiada uses his personal experience on his own wedding day as inspiration for their approach to photography. His elderly grandfather mustered up the energy to dance while holding onto a chair, and Tony joined him as soon as he saw the effort his grandfather put into celebrating the wedding. Unfortunately, the photographer missed this moment, focusing too much on the broader view of the event. To Tony, this was such an important moment that he is not able to show, and now he uses this as a model to go against. He focuses on capturing people, not just events.
