A Fresh Approach To The Traditional Syracuse Photography Studio

Our studio's many years of experience, and joyful approach to shooting, come together in a fresh expression of classically beautiful imaging. Our photographic artists are known for polish and refinement without ever being dated or stuffy. Join us in the studio and relax while our creative team expertly designs your perfect shoot.



Our Photography Environment

When you commission a photographic artist from Francesca Photographers our entire creative team works together to tailor an imaging experience just for you. Each of our Syracuse photographers is an expert in a different style of photography, post-production editing, and image design. We then curate a team based on your unique character and commission profile.

DESIGN: After getting to know you we strategize plans in a pre-shoot meeting to discuss your unique goals. A creative plan is crafted to produce images that present you (or your business/wedding) in the absolute best way possible.


CAPTURE: When the day of the shoot arrives, our experts have already taken care of the details and the session is organized andrelaxed. To maximize your investment, we spend the session focused on nothing but capturing the finest images and making everything look its best.


ENHANCE: After the session, your images enter a rigorous post-production process. Images are archived in the studio and on the cloud, opened individually in Photoshop for complete editing and then artistic enhancements are applied. A final retouching gives your images the polished and refined look that is our studio signature style.


CURATE: Once your images are delivered our artists provide curatorial services to take the stress out of image selection, presentation and archive. Our years of experience and education are at your disposal.


Our clients have included numerous pro athletes, Fortune 500 companies, prominent national politicians, media personalities and other high-profile individuals. The gorgeous, award-winning imagery captured by the talented team of photographic artists at Francesca has been featured in top publications, lifestyle websites, and blogs around the nation. You have seen our work in places like Modern Bride, The Knot, Brides Magazine, InStyle Weddings Online, and Professional Photographer Magazine.
