ABOUT JIMMY

Who am I?

My name is Jimmy Taaffe and I own Limelight-Images Photography. My brides are like movie stars and my grooms are rock stars. So, I am a photographer. I shoot with a camera. A really big one. Most of my work is done in the great cities of New York, Youngstown and Pittsburgh.

Photography should be an extension of who you are. What you see. What you see as beautiful. I sometimes refer to my photography as ‘that wonderful machine in me.’ It is, really. I have the best job in the world… and you know what? That’s kinda cool. I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoyed creating it!
