Although the owner of Manor Photography studio, Dr. Uri Manor, has been taking photos for as long as he can remember, he only began his professional photography career in 2005. For his Ph.D. thesis research, Uri spent several years taking photographs of amazingly beautiful biological structures using both fluorescence and electron microscopes. These countless hours with the microscope led him towards his full-blown passion as a photographer. His appreciation and respect for subtle details and dynamic forms naturally carries over into a love of photographing nature, and a keen eye for nature's magical lighting. When necessary, Uri and his associates will recreate that look with professional lighting equipment.
Photographically and philosophically, Uri considers people and all of their creations (e.g. food, buildings, architecture, music) and activities (e.g. weddings and parties) to be a special subset of nature that is especially beautiful.
A few reviews from previous wedding clients of Manor Photography:
We flew Uri Manor in from out of state (we are in California, Uri is in the DC area) because my husband had worked with Uri in Uri's other profession - cell biology and we'd both seen his photos and liked the style. But what really made the wedding photos special was the interaction during our photo shoots. Having a charming, kind, photographer who was genuinely happy for us on our wedding day made it feel like there wasn't a photographer in the house, but a close family friend. Within a very short amount of time, Uri had edited photos for us to preview and share with our friends via Facebook, and they were spectacular. We've blown up several of the images and still get compliments about them 2.5 years later. We have a little one now and can't wait to meet up with Uri soon so we can get family portraits done.
Uri did a wonderful job of capturing our wedding day and rehearsal dinner. His artistic eye gave our pictures a very unique and stunning quality. He was eager to capture all aspects of our wedding weekend. Thank you so much for giving us images that we will cherish forever!
Uri was fantastic. He was so easy to get along with. He had a camera belt and was constantly taking pictures without being intrusive. He made sure we had the best pictures he could take. He even laid down on the grass/dirt to get some pictures. Amazing. Thank you so much!
Absolutely fantastic photographer! A pleasure to work with, top notch equipment, and captured amazing shots.
Uri was an amazing, professional, and personable photographer! I would highly recommend him!
After seeing the photos the Uri took during our wedding, I kicked myself in the ass for ever thinking we should have our parents use their point and shoots. I was particularly impressed with Uri's ability to take high quality photos of my family indoors. Often times photographers fail in this department and you end up with photos of your family looking like deer in head lights. Throughout the planning and execution of our wedding, Uri was also very enthusiastic, communicative, and responsible. He is definitely the person you want on your team for the big day.
