Elegant Wedding Photojournalism
Elegant. Classy. Timeless. These are some of the words that many brides use to describe how they picture their wedding. When you choose me as your photographer, these are the styles of photography I offer: elegant, classy & timeless.
Regardless of the current trend in weddings and wedding photography, most brides agree that they want their wedding images to transcend time. That is what I deliver.
What is important to me is using the kinds of photographic techniques that have always made images beautiful and elegant. Specifically, that means ensuring beautiful, high quality lighting, strong compositional techniques and elegant, timeless poses. Coupled with my clean, film style post-processing techniques, I deliver exceptional wedding photography for discerning & sophisticated brides in the Lehigh Valley.
My photographic techniques are unobtrusive and designed to capture all the emotions that encompass your wedding day. My photography is more than a collection of images from your wedding day; it tells the story of your wedding day so that you may continue to relive and share your wedding day story as you grow old together.
This is why it is important to pick a photographer that doesn’t just take pictures, but offers a true story-telling experience through timeless, classy & elegant photography that you will cherish for a lifetime.
“Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn’t know were there, even the ones they wouldn’t have thought to call beautiful themselves.”

When will we see our photographs?
Normally, I will have your photographs online and ready to view within 3-4 weeks. Additionally, I like to provide sneak peaks of some of my favorite shots from your wedding within the first week of your wedding in order to give you something to share with friends and family right away.
Once your entire collection is ready, I will send you a link where you can conveniently view and share all of the photographs from your wedding. You may also order prints and enlargements and share that link with friends and family so they may conveniently view, share and order prints and enlargements as well.
“I would recommend Clay a million times over and couldn’t have asked for a better person to have do our wedding photos.”
When I graduated from Lehigh University in 2004, I wasn’t sure what I really wanted to do with my life. I knew that I didn’t want to settle in to some lifeless job that would eventually bore me. Through my years of trying new jobs, I eventually settled in to the position of digital marketing manager for a small dealer group in New Jersey. I also met and fell in love with my wife, Ashley. That is when my interest in wedding photography took off.
My first job at 16 years old was working for Ritz Camera. Within months, I saved up enough money to purchase my own Nikon SLR camera. I loved the ability to use photography as the medium through which I could express my creativity. When I graduated from Lehigh, my dad presented me with my first digital Nikon SLR. 4 years later, I realized that wedding photography was a great portal into the love, passion & emotion of two people and the family and friends that support them. At that moment, I knew that photography could give me a career where I would never be bored and Clay Toporski Photography was founded. It gave me the ability to work for myself and constantly push my creative limits. My goal is to continually push my boundaries while creating elegant and artistic images that thoroughly capture your passion, commitment and love for each other.
