Silverfox Studios was born and raised among the energy and culture of New York City. After all, it’s the center of the universe. People come here to work hard and play harder, to make their dreams a reality, and most of all, to fall in love.
In the 1950s & 60s, The Bronx was home to an amazing photographer that captured weddings and family events for his community. His name? Warren Meurer aka the “Silverfox” (due to his flowing silver and gray locks). Fast forward to the early 1990s, Warren’s grandson, John Salkowsky, was forging his path in television while working at CBS, but he knew what his real passion was. So, in 1992, John and his new bride Joann decided to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and open a wedding photography and video studio. When it came time to name this newly formed company, There was only ONE name it could possibly have – Silverfox Studios. So it is with this DNA that Silverfox has grown into one of the most known and trusted studios in the region. And today, over a quarter-century since its founding, Silverfox keeps a few core principles at the heart of it all: hire great people, keep the promises you make, and deliver an exceptional experience to every client.

We will keep this simple and to the point! We capture great images and video. Deliver beautiful albums, prints, wedding trailers, and more.
