Wonderful Wedding Videography!Reviewed on 3/23/2014 Kate A
We contacted Alex Kaplan for our wedding videography. They worked great with us to make sure we had a package that fit our needs as well as our budget. Throughout the ceremony and reception they were extremely professional and nonintrusive. They worked great with our photographers and all of our vendors. They captured all of the amazing moments and put it into a video we will be able to watch and enjoy forever! We highly recommend using Alex Kaplan for videography and we will be giving their name to anyone we know getting married! Thank you for capturing our memories!
Great ServiceReviewed on 1/12/2014 Ariel L
Alex Kaplan and his team did a great job on my wedding photos and video. We paid in advance for a slightly better rate which made my husband nervous, but Alex showed up and did an amazing job. The wedding was in New York and in between the ceremony and reception my bridal party, husband and I walked to Lincoln Center with Alex and his crew taking pictures the entire time. I can honestly say that over the course of a wonderful day that hour was the most fun part of the wedding. In the end, Alex sent us a cd with over 900 photos and more than 1000 outtakes, some of which were quite good. The video came a few weeks later and was fun to watch as well. I would recommend Alex Kaplan to anyone who would like great wedding photos for a reasonable price.
Fantastic!Reviewed on 11/16/2013 rachael g
Our friend had gotten married right around the time we were looking for a photographer and she INSISTED we call Alex. We went to meet with him and were instantly impressed by his beautiful pictures. His warm and friendly demeanor was also a sure sign he was the photographer for us. Our wedding pictures came out absolutely wonderful. The pictures of my husband and me are gorgeous! I can't wait to hang up prints!
We hired Alex Kaplan for our photography after he shot one of our friends' weddings. We loved her photos and were shocked by how quickly she got them all -- and that she had the rights to the photos. His pricing was very affordable, so we did engagement photos, wedding photos and the photobooth with them. Any time we emailed, we usually received a reply within 24 hours. They were "there, but not there" on the wedding day, capturing all the best moments without being in the way. And most importantly of course, our pictures came out absolutely beautiful. We are so impressed and grateful for the awesome work they did.
We booked Alex Kaplan for our wedding coming up next June and for engagement session. It was very easy and not stressful at all to set up a date, time, and location for our engagement shoot. I can't say enough great things about how accommodating they were for us because our original date had rain all day long and they allowed for us to reschedule. Unfortunately, the next date we picked had severe thunderstorms that day and Alex Kaplan promptly got back to us and let us reschedule for a second time! I'm so glad they did because we had a beautiful day and the pictures came out amazing! They are so much better than my fiancé and I ever imagined! Aaron was our photographer and he was prompt and very personable! Taking pictures with him was very comfortable and we had a great experience! We can't wait for them to photograph our wedding!
We used Alex for three weddings, and were thrilled with each result. He and his assistants were very professional and unobtrusive. We could not recommend him any more.
I hired 2 photographers and I still stand by my statement that there must have been at least 10 guys working my wedding. Every single time I went to pose with a group for a selfie or an iPhone shot, one of the photographers would pop up and capture a professional version. They are literally everywhere. They cover every minute and every moment. I have only seen the "teaser" shots so far and I am more than pleased. They even managed to get my, often surly looking, (now) husband to looking loving and affectionate. They are miracle workers. Price is also on the lower side of reasonable which was great :)
Alex was very professional, although we had went to him last minute, he still work with us. He had sent a Harold on behalf of him. Harold was very patient with us, and was willing to do what it takes to have our perfect wedding. I highly suggest Alex and his staff, they are professional and their price was extremely affordable.
We just used Alex Kaplan photo and video for our wedding, and they did a great job. The pictures came out amazing, and the photographers and videographers were very professional. I would definitely recommend them!
My wedding was on April 18th, 2015. It is now almost 7 months later and Alex Kaplan & his team are still making me feel like we chose the best photography and video company out there!!! I emailed them recently, & as always, they responded immediately!! I had a crazy request and they exceeded my expectations without any questions asked!!!!!! Thank you again to all of you for your immense kindness and for your caring ways!!! They definitely make sure you know you matter to them !!!!!! They made us feel like we weren't just "business" but friends!! Such a great feeling! Thankkk youuu isn't enough!!!! -Carina Duran-Masone & William Masone!
We had two photographers and a videographer for our wedding and they were all fantastic! They were very professional and worked efficiently so that my husband and I could get a few minutes in cocktail hour (which is what we wanted!). Everyone was very nice to work with and they made the day go smoothly. Our photos came out beautifully and were very tasteful! We highly recommend using Alex Kaplan photography!!
Great photographers and easy to work with!Reviewed on 7/09/2015 Cate S
We used Alex Kaplan Photography for our May 2015 wedding. We had two photographers and an assistant for 12 hours. We took photos at four different locations. Alex himself did not shoot our wedding, but his associate Damian. The photographers were very prompt and did not waste any time taking photos. They were well coordinated with earpieces to ensure that the groom and myself did not run into each other before the ceremony. They did a great job of coming up with picture ideas (I was a bit too emotional to remember all the ones I wanted) and verified that the list of photos I submitted beforehand were all taken. They were very polite, professional, and easy to work with. They seemed to be every where throughout the reception and I don't think a single moment went upcaptured. We worked with Alex before the wedding for planning. He was fantastic and responded so quickly. I did not worry about for a second about our photographers. After the wedding, he was quick to respond with a webalbum within two weeks and then all of the pictures were sent a week after that. Overall, it was a wonderful experience working with Alex Kaplan photography and we have many beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you for being our photographers!
Alex and his staff could not have been more wonderful, courteous, and professional through our entire wedding process, from engagement pictures to receiving our pictures (which arrived exactly when Alex said they would!). We used Alex for photography, videography, and photo booth (the hit of our wedding!) and he and his staff were wonderful. They were completely unobtrusive (we got our pictures back and realized we had no memory of them being at the chuppah- they are photo ninjas!) but still managed to get gorgeous shots and reaction shots of our wedding. Alex Kaplan Photography was unbelievable value for unbelievable quality and I would recommend them to anyone getting married.
I highly recommend Alex Kaplan Photography. I was so impressed by their professionalism and affordability. The photos are absolutely beautiful. I couldn't be more excited about them. Our photographer (Jasmin) was amazing. She was never in the way. She had great ideas for photos and made sure she got the special shot that I wanted too. I'm so glad I booked this company. Thank you!!!
DissappointingReviewed on 4/06/2015 Kiera G
I was prepared and eager to use this photographer after "alltherave"...unfortunately it never left the ground...as a bride to be I am searching for quality and value...this photographer was OK with immediate contact because the package was somewhat reasonable... The down payment was unclear,so I made a small payment, which he was not that he received so I had to forward my receipt to him and get never to book my day and he suddenly changed terms in an email...because I have too much stuff on my plate I sought other options and asked for a refund....he kindly responded with a NO...need to do better 👎👎👎👎
PerfectReviewed on 1/31/2015 Lisa Z
Alex was fantastic for our January Wedding he was a gentleman, punctual, professional and just a super nice guy. He and his staff got our pictures to us very fast and they came out beautifully. I will hire him again when I need professional pictures taken. We did not have to sacrifice quality.
Alex Kaplan Is The BEST!!!!Reviewed on 10/08/2014 Arcelis D
A very special shout out to my photographer, Alex Kaplan, you were a pleasure to work with, he was very responsive, professional, and amazing and capture all the beautiful moments. I really can't thank you enough, Alex. Thank you so much! I definitely recommend Alex Kaplan!
Amazing Photographer!!Reviewed on 10/02/2014 Jenn S
My husband and I used Alex and his team for our photography/video/photobooth for our wedding in September 2014. I cannot express enough how amazing they all were to work with. His team was super professional, organized, and truly integrated themselves into the day seamlessly. The photos came out beautifully and very quickly after the day were emailed over to us. Alex also worked with us on our engagement shoot which was so much fun! We really feel like he was an awesome friend that just happens to take professional photos :) I can't recommend him enough, his prices are VERY reasonable and the service was unmatched! I already have one of my best friends booking him for her wedding in March so act fast! -Jenn and Dan Schwartzberg
Reliable and AccommodatingReviewed on 9/14/2014 Elizabeth S
I contacted Alex who promptly invited my fiancé and me to meet with him. He listened patiently to my questions. His detailed answers helped to make the wedding day a total success. He worked with my budget to help make all of my dreams come true. The photographs are beautiful and capture moments my husband and I never even noticed. We also used the Photo Booth and videographer. The Photo Booth was a hit at the wedding and the guest book we were left with is a treasure of the festivities while the guests loved their keepsakes too! When Alex's team arrived at the two different locations prior to the ceremony, they were a pleasure to work with. They noticed extended family members at one of the locations and pictured them with no questions asked. The photographer at my house was kind and courteous as were the other members of the team, holding my train and assisting me as I walked to the various locations. It was wonderful to work with such a punctual staff who all met us at the church. Working with us at the photo location prior to the reception was wonderful as the entire team collaboratively assembled all of our family members in order to get some fantastic family portraits. Alex's team even accommodated our three family dogs who came dressed in lavender bow ties. The pictures of our pets are some of the most treasured photos we now have. I would not hesitate to use Alex and his team for any major event!
So glad I chose them!Reviewed on 9/06/2014 Vanessa L
Alex Kaplan and his team did an amazing job on our wedding. His team arrived on time at the two requested designated locations to start the day. They were patient and courteous with our wedding party, which was very large. We also used Alex Kaplan for videography as well as a photo booth. The photo booth was a great decision. The guests loved it and we received an album of the photo booth photos the same night! The pictures came out beautifully and the photographers really captured everything from preparation, to the ceremony, cocktail hour & reception. Our guests also complimented the photography/videography team about their communication with one another and how they did not to interfere or interrupt anyone while doing their jobs. I’m really glad we went with Alex Kaplan Photography, a lot of things were not perfect that day, but they came pretty close to it. Thanks a lot guys. TRUE PROFESSIONALS!
Alex is AmazingReviewed on 8/31/2014 Rachel Z
We contacted Alex on a Friday, late at night, after a disastrous encounter with a recommended photographer. I was immediately hooked because Alex not only answered the phone on a Friday night, but spoke with me for an extensive period of time and was highly professional. Not only this, but since my now husband and I could not drive over to meet Alex he agreed to Skype with us. We throughly appreciated his work ethic both before our wedding, at our wedding, and all the communication we have had thereafter. As we were getting ready for our wedding, the photographers and videographers arrived and began documenting our special occasion; we hardly knew that they were there. After seeing the weather report for our wedding day, Alex was very flexible in helping us change the location of our formal photos so that we could ensure the weather would not impact our photographs. Our formal photos were fun, easy, and turned out great. Alex and his team were like ninjas at our ceremony and we were shocked when we saw their pictures, neither myself nor Dave can recall them being there because they made sure to stand in key locations and not interfere with the event. Lastly, our candid shots, including the photo booth, are amazing and capture the spirit of our wedding. We highly recommend Alex and his staff.
Very Happy Bride!Reviewed on 8/30/2014 Jennafir A
I was so happy with the photo booth service! The booth was a huge hit and there was a crazy line the entire time that the booth was there. The attendants had a great sense of humor, and I loved the photo book that they made for us. I would definitely recommend Alex Kaplan!
Great Work!Reviewed on 8/16/2014
What I like in a photographer is the ability to be there, but not be noticed. Our photographers from Alex Kaplan Photography arrived early and introduced themselves. They were present when they needed to be and faded into the background when the time came. The quality of the photos are also fantastic! My mom, still nearly a month after the wedding, still calls me to say how much she loves then and is preparing to buy basically all of them as prints. A+, highly recommended.
Great Photography Team!Reviewed on 8/14/2014 Catherine H
We found Alex Kaplan online through google search and different wedding websites. I did not receive a "word of mouth" recommendation but PLEASE consider this a "word of mouth" recommendation. Alex Kaplan and his team are AWESOME!!! The important things I wanted in our wedding photographer were an awesome photo booth and photographers/videographers who were not annoying, overwhelming, in your face and rude (Like I've experienced at other weddings). Alex Kaplan's team was none of those things and actually they were funny, fun, kind, understanding and nice! The team working with us were Jackie, Tracy, Mo & Mike. They came right on time and did not pressure us to do weird photos or make any of us feel uncomfortable. They were very understanding with me adding photos during the day/night (like wait! I need a photo with this cousin etc...) We received our web album a little after 2 weeks after our wedding! This is very fast! The Photo Lounge was PERFECT!! The props were awesome and everyone had so much fun in the lounge. I love that they provide a book with all the photos of the guests and a message from those who chose to write. I feel like this review does not give justice to the experience we had with Alex Kaplan and his team. Since the first time that we Skyped, Alex made us feel comfortable. He was always very prompt at responded no matter what time of the day it was. We are overwhelmingly satisfied with how the day went and with the results of the photographs!
Alex and his team are amazingReviewed on 8/09/2014 Samantha M
Alex and his team provided photography and videography for our wedding this summer. Weddings can be very stressful, and our photographers made that part of our day absolutely stress free. They were very punctual and were ready to help us capture every special moment. We had a problem with where our first look pictures would take place, and the two photographers and videographer all communicated and coordinated to make sure my future husband did not see me before it was time. They captured absolutely beautiful moments throughout the day, and we cannot thank them enough. And yes, all the reviews about them being the most affordable group are absolutely true! We were able to hire two photographers and a videographer and it was totally worth it. Stop looking for other wedding photographers and just email Alex. Thank you for everything, Alex and team!!
