Abacus Studios was amazing! posted 9/22/2014

My husband and I got married on September 6th, and we used Abacus Studios for photography and for the photo booth. We worked with Alex initially when we were setting everything up. He was so friendly and easy to talk to. He was able to explain everything to us and they are very reasonably priced. The photo booth was a huge hit at the wedding. Everyone from Abacus was extremely polite and professional, and they all helped to make our day even better. Michelle was our photographer. She was absolutely amazing, and the pictures came out better than we could have ever expected! She wasn't afraid to stand on the bridge or move us around to make sure that she got the best shot. She was so friendly and we absolutely LOVED having her! We honestly couldn't have found a better photographer, and we thank everyone from Abacus Studios for making our wedding even more memorable!

Abacus is Amazing posted 7/24/2014

It was a once in a lifetime experience! Through all the chaos that is both overwhelming and exhilarating, the Photographers, videographer, Step and Repeat photographer, and photo booth attendant made sure to get every picture! Abacus's emphasis was not only on quality work but on making the environment fun and easy. Thank You Abacus!!!!

Wedding: 6/22/2014

My husband and I got married June 22, 2014 Damian and Michelle were there to capture our whole day. They were both so nice and easy going you would have thought that they had been friends of ours for years. They embraced us and our crazy friends in our bridal party . Michelle was so helpful whether it was helping my husband and the groomsman with their ties or helping me with my dress or holding my bouquet. She wasn’t just the photographer; she definitely went above and beyond. The pictures she captured were just stunningly beautiful. Damian captured all the right moments. When Darrin and I watched our wedding video together and saw all of our pictures we couldn’t have been any happier. Thank you Damian and Michelle for helping to make our special day so perfect!! Everyone at Abacus Studios has been great throughout our whole wedding planning process and after the wedding. We highly recommended all brides to be to choose Abacus Studios for their big day!!

Super Stress Free!! posted 8/20/2014

My fiance and I got engaged on Valentines Day of 2014, so we had less than 6 months to plan our wedding and book our vendors. When we met with Alex it was June and we wanted both photography and video. We were able to get both for under our budget and added a photo booth at the last miuniute (which was a hit) We had Damian and Michelle, and all the reviews are right, they were both amazing! Thank you Abacus! I would definitely recommend them for any event.

The Best!!!!! posted 8/18/2014 (modified 8/18/2014)

I wanted to wait until I received my photos, now I have both my photos and edited DVD. We met with Alex and he was able to put a photo and video package together for under four thousand. We had Doug and Damian as our photographer and videogapher and they were both great, as the final product shows. I would recommend Abacus to anyone getting married.

Professional and Great Value posted 8/11/2014

Initially we were skeptical because thier prices were pretty low however, after reading the reviews and than meeting with Alex, we understood how Abacus can offer such a great product and service at such a low price. On the day of the wedding we had John as our photographer. He was great and the pictures cam out incredible! I would definitely recommend anyone getting married to at least consider a look at Abacus.

My husband and I recently got married at The Lambertville Inn in NJ. We chose to use Abacus Studios to do the photography for our wedding because my sister had also used them for her wedding the year before and her photos had come out beautifully. We hired 2 photographers, Doug and Chris, to cover every moment. Not only did they do a fantastic job of getting all the photos we wanted, they were in the thick of the party taking photos of all our family and friends throughout the reception. We even met with Doug about a month before the wedding to walk through the town together and choose some locations that would work for our photographs. While he didn't have to do this for us, it was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders on the big day knowing that our photographer was familiar with the area and had an idea of the vision I had for our photography. Abacus Studios was very professional and made sure they everything we needed was in place before the big day. I would highly recommend Abacus Studios to my friends and family for their wedding photography!

Buyer Beware posted 6/14/2014 (modified 6/16/2014)

I will be interested to see what many of the other reviewers here say AFTER their weddings. We, too, fell in love with Alex and the entire staff at Abacus and happily signed a contract for them to photograph our October 2009 wedding. Throughout the entire planning process and even the day of the wedding, they were professional and (we thought) detail- oriented. The day of the wedding, our photographer Michelle was present everywhere she needed to be but not at all intrusive. When we got our first set of proofs back, we were so excited! Michelle had done an amazing job! However, that's where things took a turn for the worse. We had pre- paid for all our photos as well as three studio albums. The process of trying to work with Gabe, the graphic artist, to design the albums was agonizing. Emails went unread, instructions ignored, details missed. It took until Jun 2012 (ALMOST THREE YEARS!!!!) to get our final wedding album. And then, once it arrived, among other issues, the title was wrong and the very first page was completely off- center! Abacus refused to correct any of it stating that I had approved it as- is. (My approval did NOT show the cover at all and during the entire editing process when I had repeatedly asked about centering and other spatial issues, I had been told over and over again that the graphic artist would review and correct everything before it was sent to the printer- my job was to approve content). Our wedding album is just a complete disappointment. Do NOT waste your money! You will be far better off creating and editing your own album online- which is what we had to end up doing. You will save time, aggravation, and a LOT of money! I gave them three stars overall because the photographs themselves are wonderful and I am so glad we were able to capture the day. If you plan to hire Abacus (and specifically Michelle) to photograph your wedding, I do not think you will be disappointed but by all means DO NOT WASTE A PENNY on albums from Abacus.

Vendor Comments

On behalf of Abacus Studios we are sorry to learn, that we did not exceed your expectations regarding your album. With a decade of service in the wedding industry, this is our first review in which the client was not completely satisfied however, it ...

The amount was a bit more. I don't remember the exact amount. I had video and photography. I am very pleased with their work. They were very respectful and on point. They had ideas and focused on their work. They really knew what they were doing! I have their info for any future event we may have. And the price they gave us was great!

Can't Wait to See the Pics! posted 12/1/2013 (modified 12/2/2013)

We went with Abacus based on reviews and after contacting multiple vendors, they were also the best value. Alex, who runs Abacus, was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout all of the planning. We even added video at the last minute and he accommodated us with our requested videographer. I had read reviews about how great Michelle and Damian were, so I asked for them. The reviews were right! Michelle was so helpful the entire time--I was totally relaxed because of her! She was doing everything from carrying my dress to adjusting my hair in the wind outside! Michelle and Damian were both troopers outside in the November weather and even though Michelle was sick, you would have never known! I can't wait to get everything back!

Michelle is awesome! posted 10/16/2013

From day 1, Abacus (and team) were very responsive and attentive to our wedding day needs. They were flexible with meeting at night. We met the photographer prior to the wedding which was great because we were able to see some of her previous work and tell her our thoughts. A couple of weeks prior to the wedding, they have a form you fill out with all the specifics of your wedding day (addresses, specific pictures you want, etc.). So aside from Abacus being great, Michelle (our photographer) was fantastic. From the moment she walked through the door, I felt comfortable with her. She was able to capture every picture we wanted, made people smile in way I've never seen before...she's was awesome! She had such creative ideas that I was overly pleased with once I saw our photos. Overall, I was very impressed with her and the quality of her work. I definitely recommend Abacus Studio!

My husband and I booked our Photography and Videography with Abacus Wedding Studios for our wedding at Dolce Basking Ridge in June 2013. The services were exceptional and the pictures and video both came out amazing!! We enjoyed working with John and Doug on our wedding day. They did a wonderful job at capturing every moment perfectly for us :) Alex was attentive from the first day we went into the studio to book - stand up service at a great price. We would highly recommend Abacus!

AMAZING JOB! posted 8/1/2013

Abacus did an exceptional job on our wedding day! We first met with Alex, who worked closely with us to help us choose the right package for us! We absolutely loved the work that Michelle and Damien did! They did an amazing job of going beyond our expectations. Michelle was such a kind and professional photographer. She took excellent photographs and made a point to try to get the type of pictures we were looking for. The love that she has for photography and weddings really shines in her work! Michelle seemed like she part of our bridal party, everyone really enjoyed having her be a part of our day. Damien did a great job of getting a video of our day. Through out the day, he did not ever get in our way. It almost seemed like he was not there, yet he captured everything. We also used their photo booth, which really helped capture some funny moments. All the guests really enjoyed it! I truly recommend Abacus for anyone who is looking for a company to take amazing pictures and video! It was an overall great experience!
