About Me

About Me

My name is Roman Francisco. I am a photographer, software writer, frustrated saxophone player, father to two girls, husband to Nina.

I live in East Brunswick, NJ. I love ice cream. If we can survive on just eating ice cream, I will.

I grew up in Manila, Philippines and left when I was 25 to work everywhere as an IT consultant. Current assignment/location NYC/USA.

By the way, I have an identical twin brother (i.e., clone) living in Hawaii. He’s very handsome.

My retirement plan is to go back to the Philippines and live in a Nipa Hut with a hammock beside a rice field.

My images have graced the pages The Knot Wedding Magazine and most notably Grace Ormond Wedding Style Magazine.

A frequent wedding photographer at New York City’s most prestigious locations, such as The Mandarin Oriental New York, NY Public Library, Capitale, and doesn’t shy from Long Island’s landmark venue, Oheka Castle.

Please call or email to schedule a meeting so we can meet and discuss your wedding day.

My Mission

I am not a big wedding studio. This is my own business that I myself run. Meaning, I do it all. From the photography to the sales and marketing. 

I don’t have what the big wedding studios have. With them you get consistency, streamlined process, in-and-out, a person for every stage of their process. Meaning what the previous client experience will be what the next one will have, again and again.

With me it’s not like that. Every client will have a different experience. Well because we are all different. 

For starters your venue could be your beautiful backyard with an open air tent or your ceremony may be an elaborate 3-day event, dress changes for the reception, pastel colored flowers instead of orchids, cake or no cake, red shoes or converse, future wife/husband or Mr/Mr or Mrs/Mrs couples will be different. So I cater to those who are different. 

They want their wedding to be unique. So I make sure we talk and discuss with each and everyone about what they have in mind of their special day. Your day-of schedule, location to shoot beyond ceremony & reception.

I want to know everything that leads to this special day, and hopefully I deliver the same emotions in the images and service you desire.

 


Why you hire me.

Because I want you to be happy.

Your wedding event does not happen just on the wedding day. For me it is just the start. Collecting images of the event not only include family and friends, but also the venue, flower, food, mood, ambiance etc… and for the following week or so I will be making sure I can deliver that same feeling to your wedding album, prints, brag books, slideshow.

Because shooting weddings make me happy.

As your photographer, I will be the one person that will be with you on your wedding day more than anyone else. I’m there from the time you get ready, up to the end when you cut the cake. So you better pick someone who likes doing it, otherwise you’ll be stuck with someone who’s grouchy.

Because you want to remember.

I want you to have the negatives. The actual “celluloid” film. You and your family should have an album to share. It is your first heirloom as a couple and soon as a family.
