The 4 Eyes in our name belong to founding photographers' and owners Kellie Walsh & Rupert Rogers. We're partners in photography & in life.
In 2001 we created our boutique Wedding & Event Photography studio together, based in the heart of Manhattan's Flatiron District in New York City. Our vision was always to create a company to consistently produce authentic, modern, and elegant imagery, with a fashion edge, for clients with a demanding and discerning eye. We wanted to shake up the image of traditional Wedding photography and approach every wedding as if it were an individual assignment to capture the essence and atmosphere of the day - with 4 Eyes constantly scanning the action!
We’re honored to have been photographing amazing Weddings, Fashion shoots, Galas & Events and custom Portraiture for a diverse array of Celebrities, Small Businesses, Corporations and Magazines ever since.
We believe all photography is story telling. We’re proud to have over 18 years experience telling stylish, fun, gorgeous 'stories' around the World, through our photography. Shooting as a team, we blend our backgrounds in high-end luxury Fashion & Advertising Photography to create captivating, stunning imagery for our clients.
Kellie’s extensive experience in Commercial and Fashion photography gives her an eye for beauty in all things. She knows how to skillfully direct a shoot - & make you look good.
Rupert’s background in Advertising Photography draws him to the detail and the message of an image - always with an eye for all those decisive moments that must be captured to tell the story.
Together we make an unmatched team for your wedding or photography assignment. 4 Eyes Photography.
It’s been an extraordinary and successful journey, and we’ve shot over 600 weddings together and have a roster of loyal commercial clients.

"I was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, and I found my passion and love for photography in college—where I first picked up a camera—and I never looked back. I have been a professional photographer my entire working life. I just loved the way I became an observer, experiencing the world through the lens. Learning to see the play of light and shadow in a landscape or the feeling of interconnectivity when shooting a portrait or a wedding.
I still remember how excited I got watching a print emerge from the chemicals in a dark room (yes, I learned with film)—and the thrill of seeing what I had photographed! Having that
moment in time, forever captured. I loved spending hours in the dark room, mastering the craft of the print.
Now, years later and the medium is digital, the same thrill is there, as I watch the files input into the computer. The excitement of seeing the faces and the moments again, reliving the experience of connecting with a client at a wedding or photo shoot.
In 2001, my life partner Rupert and I created 4 Eyes Photography. With our different but complimentary photography backgrounds, aesthetics and styles, we crafted a unique approach to capturing our subjects. Clients love that we’re a couple and work as a team to document their day. I love that I can draw upon my experience as a fashion and commercial photographer to direct the portraits, while knowing Rupert is there to capture the candid, unscripted moments.
I feel so honored and fortunate to be a part of both a successful Wedding & Event Photography company and a Fashion & Business photo studio ( Kellie Walsh Photography ) here in New York City. I'm so thrilled for the opportunity to photograph and connect to Brides and Grooms and clients all over the globe.
I also teach photography to students one-on-one in my studio and at a private academy. It’s so much fun to teach kids how to find their own personal 'vision' using the camera—passing on the thrill I had first experienced.
I could never be anything other than a photographer. It has defined me for years. I’m great at making people feel relaxed and drawing out their true essence. Even without a camera in my hand, I see so much detail and beauty in the world. I am so grateful that I had found my true passion so many years ago." - Kellie Walsh

RUPERT ROGERS, PRINCIPAL PHOTOGRAPHER
"I was born in Northampton, England and spent two years traveling the World - exploring Africa, Europe, India, South East Asia, Australia and the Pacific, visiting over 40 countries along the way. I wrote and photographed the entire time and developed a passion for photography. This period of observation and emersion in so many cultures really shaped and sharpened my eye for detail and understanding of the diversity and beauty in the world.
After living and working in London, Sydney and San Francisco, I decided to settle in Greenwich Village, New York City. Where else but the ultimate melting pot of cultures ? I began a career in professional photography, spending over ten years at Manhattan Advertising & Commercial Photography Agencies Comstock Photography and later as Managing Director of both Nonstock Photography and Popwire.
I met Kellie in 1998 at a photo industry party in NYC. Through a mutual love of fun, life, travel and photography, we quickly became a couple. In 2001, we decided to start a new adventure together and merge our fashion and advertising photo backgrounds and shoot together, with a shared vision, opening our own studio - 4 Eyes Photography , in the heart of Manhattan's Flatiron District.
After shooting 600 plus weddings together and hundreds of photography assignments around the world we are still thrilled every day we get to do this for a living!
Since we began, we’ve always encouraged new talent through our Intern and Assistant Programs, and have put together a great group of Team Photographers that are available for Weddings & Events, as well as In-house Album Designers and Photo Booth Photographers - all available through our studio.
When I’m not shooting for clients or fun, I still love to travel and have a passion for live music, theatre, comedy and politics ….and spending time with Kellie in our old 1800’s Victorian house near the Hudson River with our labradoodles Winston & Bernie and a good cigar!" - Rupert Rogers
