When you're researching professional photographers to capture your wedding memories, there's quite a range of services and prices. We feel so fortunate to have found Merri Cyr. Merri's also a rock and roll photographer, having many photos published in Rolling Stone and other industry publications as well as her own books. She has a rich and unique style that's truly iconic. She has two websites, one for her music business photograph and a separate site for her events/wedding photography.
When my wife and I started searching for photographers, we ignored price during the initial due diligence phase and just looked for a photographer whose style and sensibility was similar to ours. We were expecting Merri to be on the high side in terms of price because of her obvious talent and experience. Turns out, an added bonus is that her services don't break the bank and are quite reasonable for the high quality product she delivers.
Merri and the second photographer who accompanied her (and he was a talented photographer in his own right), were unobtrusive, professional, and truly captured the feel of our wedding day. It's rare to say this in life, but we couldn't have been more pleased.
In addition to the digital and 4x6 proofs, we worked with Merri on three albums for family members. The albums are stunning.
Thank you Merri for your work, talent and professionalism. Merri has my unqualified recommendation if you're seeking a special and talented photographer for your event. Mathew P. 4/11
During our 3-month engagement period, my then-fiancé-now-husband and I scrolled through numerous portfolios. Wedding industry is a world of its own, and in the realm of photography, certain formulaic themes start to emerge as you scroll through the images. We wanted to find a professional photographer who can tastefully go off the beaten path a bit. We came across Merri's work with musicians, and were struck by the edgy beauty and artistry. (I'm a classically trained musician, and her artist portraits are what initially caught my attention.) While we weren't quite sure how that would translate in the highly prescriptive and vanilla world of wedding, our engagement photoshoot with Merri quelled any uncertainty we had. She captures emotions, light, and action beautifully. The subjects' poses may leave much to be desired, but her work somehow yields natural and intimate images - whether taken in portraiture or photojournalistic style. On our wedding day, both Merri and Mark, her second photographer, were joy to work/be with. After the celebratory dusts settle, images are what remain. That, and love and bills. We are very much looking forward to seeing her work. Grace P. 7/18/2018

Merri Cyr did a great job photographing our wedding with her partner. We felt really confident about her team and they delivered beautiful photos (and MANY of them!). They are really professional and nice--and are absolutely fairly priced in the New York market. Thank you so much Merri Cyr Photography! El B. 7/14/2014
Merri Cyr Photography is an excellent bet for your wedding. I was impressed with everything. We met once to discuss my requests and then again at the event. Merri was more than prompt--she arrived early and was flexible when plans didn't go as I thought they would (had to start off in our hotel instead of my venue due to another event ending later than scheduled).
The photos were just beautiful. I had asked for attention to detail and nothing too posed--I definitely got that! When I checked in with Merri the week of my wedding, she emailed back the same day. She is very responsive. The value is one of the best around from my research.
I highly recommend Merri Cyr Photography. Anne, 9/17/2011
Merri was absolutely amazing! She was so professional and our pictures are fabulous. Having a great photographer at our wedding was really important to us and Merri more then delivered. Jessica, 11/9/2011
I found Merri to be very professional, pleasant, flexible, and talented. I enjoyed working with her & love looking at our beautiful photos to relive our special day. Lisa 11/10/2011
Merri's been photographing me for more than 15 years so it was a dream come true when she agreed to come to England to shoot our wedding. Merri captured the narrative arc of the wedding weekend - from the rehearsal through the reception. Her appreciation of the northern light, the happiness in the room - she captured the stuff that was between the lines. Everyone who sees our photos comments that they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen Stephanie 7/03/2011
My husband and I absolutely loved all of our engagement and wedding pictures. Merri is an exceptional photographer and really captured so many great moments from our wedding. We were extremely happy with the quality of work that she provided and greatful that we'll be able to look back at the pics and cherish all those special moments for the rest of our lives.

Merri is great to work with! Not only is she professional and takes beautiful wedding shots, but she also goes beyond the call of duty. She helped us enormously with putting together our wedding album and on the day of the wedding she brought 2 additional photographers. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! Cheryl 11/09/2011
