Toastphoto — event photography with an emotional kick—was created by a husband-and-wife team.
Steve Lesnick, our photographer, graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in fine arts. In the over twenty five years since then, he’s been a professional award- winning NYC advertising and lifestyle photographer. His skills in event photography grew out of his talent for capturing candid moments, making art out of life as it’s lived.
Tanya Cole-Lesnick, our everything-but-the-photographer, graduated from Parsons School of Design with a degree in fine arts. She later became a psychotherapist and life coach. These perspectives come together to give her a laser sharp eye for choosing the photos with the most potent combo of art and emotion.
Steve and Tanya both have a passion for organization and detail, so that the needs of their customers are always their highest priority.

We hired Steve Lesnick for my son's bar mitzvah after seeing samples of his beautifully shot photographs. His work truly captured the feeling of fun and excitement that you would expect to find at such a joyous occasion. Each picture is a unique work of art filled with lighting, movement and personality. If you are tired of seeing ordinary, staged and boring photos please consider Steve for your next event. Not only is he extremely professional, he is a rare talent as well!

Working with Steve Lesnick as our daughter's Bat Mitzvah photographer was an absolute pleasure! He is a truly gifted photographer who also has a way of putting his subjects at ease...so whether he was photographing the rabbi, our family, or my daughter's friends, he got those "great shots" that you are hoping for. Steve also gave us great advice when we had a question and lots of extra time. In fact, he came not only to my daughter's last Bat Mitzvah lesson to take pictures, but also to our home to capture her on some of the days leading up to the big event. We love the way the album turned out and have also given prints of the photos Steve took at the Bat Mitzvah to our friends and relatives as holiday gifts. If you want someone who is an artist, a professional, and a gentleman, we recommend Steve Lesnick and Toastphoto!
