DAVID:   As soon as I was old enough to hold a camera, I was taught photography by my grandfather, famed photographer Maxwell Frederic Coplan. My grandfather photographed everyone from Bob Dylan to Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe. His photos were featured on the covers and pages of every major publication of his day. I’ve studied photography & Film at Emerson & UCLA but nothing compares to the lessons and experience I got from my grandfather. He not only taught me about photography and film, but also how to spot great filmmakers and photographers.

After UCLA, I optioned some Screenplays, got in the WGA and worked my way through Hollywood trying to set up movies I wanted to Direct. While doing a photography & film job back in NY, I met Danielle, and on a whim started what would become Dideo Films Photography. 7 years & 500+ weddings later - Dideo Films Photography has transformed into a team of the best photographers & cinematographers in the area.

Weddings allows us to put our skills and training into action every weekend. Personally, I love being able to shoot in Fine Art, Portrait & Photojournalistic styles all in the same shoot. No matter how big or small the project. I’m always inspired by the Brides, Grooms and families we get the pleasure to work with every weekend. As a photographer, I’m always on the look out for original and compelling moments that tell the story of the day in a way that reflects the personality and style of the wedding with some unique and special touches
