Welcome to the world of Monroe Payne's Relationship Photography.

It's a little different than the usual photographer's fare, because I don't just take "pretty pictures" of "pretty people". I capture relationships, precious relationships of couples, families, babies and head portraits - those images that begin the relationship between you and your prospective client!

Whether the assignment is a group photo for Cornell, dancing students at Wells College, Head portraits for an accounting firm, product photos for a gift shop, High School Senior Photos or portraits of our precious children or elders, you can be certain of a delightful result.

Please visit the Gallery page for examples of recent work. I encourage our clients to make their images available to others to see and enjoy.

Again, Welcome to the world of Monroe Payne's Photography. (607) 351-8076 or email me at [email protected]

I met Monroe while he was driving for Uber. He handed me one of his business cards and they are gorgeous. Words is not enough to describe...

I have had the pleasure of seeing Monroe's work for a number of years and have always been impressed, He graciously accepted to be the photographer for my daughters wedding. It did not deter him and his wife that the reception was a masquerade event as they came dressed for it. The results are amazing, the photos were better than I could have imagined they would be. The technique and the finesse that he used while taking the pics was fantastic. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and gladly recommend his expertise to everyone.

Monroe is a complete professional in a very home style way. In 2014, I wanted a family remembrance group picture. We explained what we wanted our family photograph to depict and look like. We chose our colors of what all family members HAD to ware. Mom was very adamant about that! Monroe was great , we were on Seneca Lake in a beautiful cottage so nature and the beauty of the area and the lake was on our side. He was patient and seemed to have everyone's attention. The pictures were so nice and told our story so well. We had a hard time choosing, but after much decision by us and then framing by him they now grace our family room wall. Believe me, they are admired every day. In addition, as a gift to each family, we had Monroe put together a picture book of all of our pictures. A Beautiful book of memories. We were so pleased with the talent of Monroe, we asked him to come back again last year-2017. Same order, same requests - different color outfits!. He recently designed Graduation invitations for our grandchildren and he has designed our family Christmas cards in 2014 and 2017 from the pictures taken during those presentations. WE hope to see him in 2020.
