PHILADELPHIA Wedding & Portrait Photographer

I'm Cliff Mautner, and I provide beautiful wedding and portrait photography in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm perhaps best known for my authentic and dramatic photography. I use light, dimension, anticipation, texture, mood, passion, energy, romance, emotion, and technical skill to create timeless photographs for my clients and future generations.

I serve my clients from my studio in Haddonfield, New Jersey, just 10 minutes from Philadelphia via the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Weddings in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, & New York

I have photographed over 1,200 hundred weddings in the last 20 years, mainly in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City. I am available to travel nationally or abroad for destination weddings.

Philadelphia Wedding Photographer Cliff Mautner


About Cliff Mautner

I’ve been a Philadelphia Wedding Photographer for about 20 years now. Before my foray into weddings, I was a photojournalist with the Philadelphia Inquirer for 15 years. After 6,000 assignments and a million images photographed for the newspaper, I began the journey that would take me to 5 continents around the world with my camera in my hands.

Nikon Ambassador

In 2012, I was named a Nikon Ambassador. Being an Ambassador is the most significant honor of my career. Nikon acknowledges that its' Ambassadors are "some of the most talented and influential visual artists working in the business today."

I've been a loyal Nikon shooter for my entire career. I have spoken for Nikon at various trade shows and conventions, such as at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) trade show and Photo Plus at the Javits Center in New York. I have also been part of several global campaigns for Nikon. It is a great, humbling honor to have been recognized as one of only two wedding Ambassadors in the entire United States.

Photography Awards

The photography industry has honored me over the years with some truly humbling awards. I have been named one of the Top Ten Wedding Photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine, and I was awarded the International Photographer of the Year by Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).

I've also been deeply honored to be an International Photographic Council Leadership Award recipient at the United Nations.

I spent years entering the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) 16x20 Print Competition at the WPPI Convention in Las Vegas, and in 2013 I received my Master status for their Honors of Excellence Program. I also received one silver distinction award and three silver awards for my entries in the print competition. In 2011, I won second place in the Wedding Photojournalism category and was honored with four gold prints. In 2010, I received one gold and two silver prints.

In 2009, I won the Grand Award in the Photojournalism category, first place in Wedding Photojournalism, and one gold, two silver distinction, and one silver award. In 2008, I was honored with three silver distinctions and one silver award. All awards contributed to my Honors of Excellence Master status.


Education for Wedding Photographers

Educating wedding photographers is a great passion of mine. For over seven years, I've been teaching The Lighting and Skillset Bootcamp out of my studio in Haddonfield, New Jersey. It has been a great honor to have students from all over the world fly to Philadelphia to attend my workshops.

I am also a regular instructor at the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) annual convention in Las Vegas.

I am part of the educational team at KelbyOne, and my wedding photography videos can be seen with a subscription to KelbyOne.

Additionally, I've been an educator for these organizations and events:

  • Professional Photographers of America (PPA) convention
  • Photo Plus Expo in New York
  • Sandisk
  • Samys Camera
  • B+H Photo and Video
  • Professional Photographers of Greater Long Island
