Brooke and Sam are amazing photography geniuses. They somehow managed to turn my unphotogenic self and my husband into magazine models! At least that is the final product we received. We love our wedding pictures so much that we decided to purchase an official wedding album from... Read More Brooke and Sam. Normally my husband and I hate the way we look in pictures and we were typically not excited about having our picture taken. We were drawn to Brooke and Sam’s photojournalist background because we wanted candid pictures of us, our family and our friends. Brooke and Sam have an incredible eye for lighting and the ability to capture a moment at just the right angle to catch the emotion and beauty. My husband and I will cherish our wedding album for the rest of our lives with the priceless ability to experience the love, happiness and joy we felt that day. For that I will forever be grateful in our decision to hire Brooke and Sam as our wedding photographers.

My (now) wife and I hated almost every minute of wedding planning. We hated looking for venues, we hated interviewing florists, we hated compiling a guest list, and we certainly hated paying for all of it. However, we loved working with Brooke and Sam from the very start. I... Read More reached out to Sam based on the recommendation of one of my groomsmen, who had worked with him in a professional context and had a lot of respect for his work. We liked that both Brooke and Sam did not solely do wedding photography- with experience in travel journalism and documentary projects, we had confidence that they would capture our wedding day the way we wanted. We wanted lots of candids and we wanted to pictures to look natural and authentic since we both hate posing for pictures. Brooke and Sam took the time to get to know us- they took us out for drinks to get a sense of who we were and so that we could understand their experience and approach. From that very first meeting, we knew we were in great hands. Since then, they provided guidance when we needed it, scouted locations in advance for our engagement shoot, provided images very quickly, and were always available and responsive if we had any worries or questions. On the wedding day itself, they knew how to put everyone at ease in front of a camera (Brooke is especially talented at getting shy 3 year old flower girls to smile for the camera) and how to direct shots without being intrusive. As for the images- well go to their site and judge for yourself. We think they do wonderful work and work great as a team. Despite the stress leading up to the wedding, my wife now likes to tell me that we had the best wedding. We had the best venue (a castle!), the best party, the best friends, and yes, the best photographers!

Brooke and Sam are simply the best. Not only are their pictures beautiful, honest, and truly reflective of the couple's personality, they are fabulous people who we are so glad to have met. This is what really sealed the deal for my husband and I. From our first meeting all the... Read More way through to after our wedding, they were supportive, knowledgeable, and made my husband and I feel comfortable. We have some complicated family dynamics which required multiple rounds of family pictures on our wedding day and Brooke and Sam helped us stay calm, cool, and collected while keeping everyone organized and taking some truly beautiful shots. My husband and I normally don't like taking photos, but we never felt uncomfortable and even managed to have fun while doing our engagement shoot. I can't emphasize how much I valued their personalized approach to everything, compared to how some things can feel while planning a wedding. And two years later, we still get a kick out of looking at our wedding photos. Working with them was one of the most important and best decisions we made in our wedding, and I would book them again in a heartbeat.

My husband knew Brooke and Sam through a mutual friend. When we were planning our wedding he suggested them since I love candid photos. At our initial meeting they asked all the right questions and really got to know us as a couple. We planned a big wedding in less than 90 days.... Read More Brooke and Sam were great at working with my hectic work and wedding planning to schedule our engagement shoot. They sent us the pictures so quickly I was able to use some at the wedding . I cannot say enough about their professionalism. They went to the venue ahead of time to look at the lighting and on the day of the wedding I didn't feel as though I was being followed around with a camera all day but our pictures were absolutely stunning. We were so happy with them we've recently asked them to take pictures from our newborn and once again we were thrilled with the pictures. I would recommend them a thousand times if I could!

Brooke and Sam made our wedding day even more memorable than we could have ever imagined! During the planning phase, they were flexible with setting the day up to our needs, but also did not shy away from offering their expert opinion where needed. They also scouted out... Read More beautiful spots in our neighborhood for some of our shots. One in particular was an area that we hadn't previously noticed ourselves, but now has a special place in our hearts every time we walk by (and also resulted in some of our favorite photos!) Brooke brought a such a sense of ease into the morning prep.  I felt as if she was one of "the girls" as she captured the moment and added to the overall delight of the girl time. Sam also gets a shout out for keeping my groom at peace before his big entrance too. Phew. In addition to Brooke and Sam both bringing a sense of calmness and professionalism into the day, these artistic experts were both fun, fun, fun! Unexpectedly due to weather, we took them to our favorite bar in the West Village to get a moment of R&R before the reception. Instead of sending them off to capture the beginning moments of our party, we kept them all to ourselves for good times and laughters. This has been our favorite pre-game yet. Do yourself (and your fiancé) a favor and call Brooke & Sam NOW. They are talented photographers, a wonderful team and truly genuine people who will help capture & create your amazing day and turn them into beautiful memories to last a lifetime.

I can't speak more highly of Brooke and her presence at our wedding. From our first conversation over the phone to the super speedy processing of photos, she was so lovely, professional and engaged in the process. Brooke seemed to immediately understand the low key vibe we were... Read More going for and was totally willing to meet us where we were. Besides having a mobile app ready to share with guests only 5 days after the wedding the best part about working with Brooke was her super calming demeanor.

She managed to perfectly capture the feelings we were hoping our guests would feel that night... Lots of love and fun in a relaxed, East Village setting.
