At Davor Kokic Photography, Every Picture Tells a Story

By S. Mathur

Studio owner and photographer Davor Kokic is a storyteller and an artist. He specializes in portraiture, and in capturing special moments for couples and families. His own story is an intriguing one, and contributes to his vision.

"I started my photography in Croatia and love led me to NY where I was inspired to continue telling stories through the camera lens," he said. "I enjoy capturing the moment in an artistic way... this is what I love doing!"

Kokic's photos recognize the romance in every story, perhaps because of his own past. Originally from Croatia, he served as a ship's officer before meeting his wife. He moved to New York in 2010, and started a family. He now lives and works out of Long Island, but will travel to shoot at different locations and in clients' homes.

Clients who choose Davor Kokic Photography are getting more than a service. Kokic has multiple talents that he devotes to each project.

"Clients get a specialist in lighting and story telling," he said. "A professional commitment to excellence and artistry. You will look back and remember the moment in all its timeless elegance."

For outdoor shoots, locales can be anywhere in New York City, New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester. These provides a series of stunning backdrops for the pictures. The energy and architecture of New York City, Central Park, flowering trees for a spring wedding and sunflowers in the summer: all of these add to the story.

Kokic has the technical skills to do justice to his subjects and the setting. His wedding pictures could come straight out of Vogue, and black and white images add to the dignity and mystique of special occasions. Engagement pictures capture that timeless story, of finding love in a big city, with couples celebrating the occasion with a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or through the cobbled streets of Dumbo.

Kokic's portfolio also reflects the diversity of the city's inhabitants and the multiple and overlapping storylines that contribute to its rich tapestry. As the father of small children, Kokic knows how to relate to his subjects on a family shoot, and how to patiently wait out rambunctious kids to get the best shots.

Clients are impressed not only by the quality of the pictures but also by Kokic's professionalism during the shoot. He is thorough, detailed and gives clear instructions that produce striking images. His own assessment of his work is modest.

"I tell stories through the camera lens," he said. "I enjoy capturing engagements, weddings, families and special events."
