OMG! I can’t say enough great things about them and we haven’t even had our wedding yet. First off, Alex was a delight to meet with and I knew before I left his office that he was exactly what we were looking for. He has the style we love and h...
is pictures are beautiful. And I’d be lying if I said money didn’t enter in here. That’s the best part, they are so AFFORDABLE! We are on a tight budget, which anyone in NJ knows is hard to work with, so believe me when I say I’ve done research on virtually all of the photographers in central and northern NJ. Alex is by far the best quality in this price bracket. When I first saw his pictures I assumed he'd be out of our budget, but boy was I wrong. He understands people are on a budget and weddings cost a lot. You can tell he really just enjoys what he does. Now there’s a way to have a quality photographer without killing your budget...enter Alex Kaplan.
Now, let’s get on to actual pictures. As I said, we haven’t gotten married yet, but we did have our engagement pictures done, and there are not enough words to express how happy I am. We wanted our pictures in the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. The day of the pictures, the train was late, so we were late, and when we got out of the train, it was raining (we had no umbrella). By the time we made it to the park, my hair was ruined, my dress was ruined and the gate to the garden was closed. Mike, the engagement photographer waited a half hour for us...outside, in the rain. I was in tears. Mike offered to reschedule us and come back out the following week. I’m so glad we listened to him. It was a beautiful 75 degree day and we got the most amazing pictures. Mike was fantastic! He was super personable and easy to work with. I had certain areas in the garden I wanted pictures and he was more than willing to oblige, as well as find the best ways to get the best pictures in those areas. At one point, he climbed a wall just to get a better angle of us. Now that’s dedication to your craft! We just got the pictures back and there are so many amazing ones it took forever to pick favorites for our Save-the-Dates. I thought I was being biased until a friend, who’s told me numerous times how much she hates engagement photos because they always look so staged, told me how amazing ours were and how we just look happy and in love. What more can you ask for in pictures than pure raw emotion! Do yourself a favor and meet with Alex to see for yourself how great he is and book him for your special day!
If this is how great the engagement pictures are...I can't wait to see what Alex Kaplan has in store for our wedding!
