Having worked for over 19 years as a professional photographer,  weddings have become my primary focus. In 2005 Joseph and Siw moved from Oslo and  launched Joseph Pessar Photographers. Wedding and Portrait Photography, based in Miami, FL.   Today, we have photographed more Norwegian Weddings, with The Norwegian Seamen's Church,  than any other company in the USA and Awarded, Bridal Choice awards for Photography, ranking us in the top 1% of wedding pro’s in the USA for 5 years running.  Our dedication to our craft, has made us the choice of many clients from around the world.  Which has lead us to look to relocate home to Norway.  With photographers based in New York City, Miami and Oslo, that have worked and trained from our vision of wedding and portrait photography, we are retuning to Oslo to launch JOSEPH & SIW - THE WEDDINGS.   AS well as launching BEING WED our new online business exclusively dedicated to the service of Norwegian and Scandinavian Clients and Brand traveling or working in the USA. Siw has opened a division of photography already in Norway as of June 2015 and together  we  look to take our business and employment to Norway. We can better serve the needs of our clients and we are currently doing so with booking and wedding local and over sea's. Further expanding our team and associates contracted planners and travel booking and services.
