As NY & NJ wedding photographers, it’s our jobs not to miss any memorable moments. However, in order for a moment to be memorable to you, your partner, and/or your guests, you need to experience it first. Sure, we can bring you as close to reliving it as possible, but the actual living it you have to do.
The thing is that wedding days are almost always a little chaotic, if not a lot. Even when everything’s going perfectly, it’s still easy to get caught up in one element or area and miss something happening somewhere else.

There’s no doubt that if you fail to find the right photographers for your big day then that will absolutely effect your album.
