JP was INCREDIBLE. My husband and I were planning our NYC wedding from LA and he was super accommodating and made the planning process really easy. The day of our engagement shoot could not have been more disgusting spitting rain but JP managed like a champ and still made... Read More our photos beautiful. On the actual day, JP and Derrick were EVERYWHERE and didn't miss a thing. Derrick took some gorgeous artistic shots! Also, they were really great dealing with some complicated family dynamics for our posed photos and made what could have been potentially stressful very stress free. One of the biggest compliments I can give is that we opted to forgo a videographer and felt that JP really captured all the things about the wedding and dont feel like we missed a thing by not having video. Lastly, our album is incredible. It is not your parents wedding album. He allows you to pick so many photos and organizes them beautifully and it is something my husband and I will treasure forever.

We were referred to JP by a family friend who used him for her child's Bat Mitzvah. JP did our engagement shoot and he and his second shooter, Derrick assisted him on our big day. We loved that the engagement shoot was included in the cost. JP was very patient with us during... Read More the engagement shoot and got a lot of great action shots with our Dog as well as a unique shot that only someone with a good eye would be able to capture. JP and Derrick were very reliable on the big day, and got many great shots. Sometimes it was hard to get in touch with JP for questions etc. throughout the months leading up to the wedding which was frustrating as I liked to very on top of things but, he would eventually come around. I would need to email or text a few times. They spent the whole day shooting from the getting ready, to the first look, to the bridal party, to the family, to the ceremony and lastly the party. It is a long day for them! JP made the bridal party laugh a lot during day which helped loosen them up and to capture more natural looking smiles. JP was mostly with the bridemaids and bride during the day while Derrick was with the groomsmen and groom. Derrick was very friendly and captured a lot of great shots but, some shots that he requested of the men weirded them out- he asked them to all pile on a bed together (7-8 of them) which they thought was strange... On another note, we were so pleased to get a link to all our pictures within 2-3 weeks from our wedding. Some pictures there would be a hair in someones face, or some hunched over awkwardly, a luggage, or a collar all bent, or a person taking a picture on their iphone in the background during a special moment etc. We wish someone would have pointed it out before the picture. We love that we have so many pictures to choose from however, you can only have 5 touched up for free and the rest for a fee which can add up. Overall, you get a lot of nice pictures capturing your event for a decent price. If you want very unique photos that look more artsy you would probably want something different and will probably need to pay more.

JP was our photographer for our wedding on March 4, 2017. He was awesome! Our engagement photo session was included in our package price. JP worked with us to select great sites in NYC which were also important to us for our photo shoot. He was easy to work with and super fun.... Read More We had our photos back to us within a week! JP's prices are competitive, his gallery is easy to use, and most importantly his photos are stunning! One small area JP could improve upon is sticking to agreed upon times for phone meetings and taking a few notes about the conversations, as to decrease repetitive questions in subsequent conversations. JP is fun loving and an expert. He has a great vision for photography, lighting, details, etc. and is willing to just try a shot to see how it will work. JP made us feel comfortable during our whole wedding day. His teammate Derrick was fantastic too! Derrick was almost like a ninja - bopping, weaving, jumping and scaling stairs - in order to get perfect shots. Both JP and Derrick were respectful of our wishes, time alone, family and of our wedding day. They captured beautiful photographs that were both posed and candid. The love and fun of the entire day are easily seen in their photos. We are elated we hired JP Teutonico for our wedding day; his work will be displayed in our home forever. Thank you, JP and Derrick!

JP was the first vendor we hired. We definitely liked his previous work, but what first sold us was gut instinct and a personality match. I knew he put my fiancé at ease, which was important to me, and that I could honest and myself around him. JP was the only NYC-based vendor... Read More of our CT wedding, and we definitely welcomed that no-BS New York vibe amid all the wedding madness. We had a ton of fun on our engagement shoot and were very happy with the outcome. But that 2 hours couldn't have prepared us for the incredible scope of our wedding day photos. Since we received them 3 days ago, it's been hard to pull ourselves away. They are extraordinary. JP doesn't work with a shot list, which I think makes room for a more fluid and fun wedding day with better spontaneity. We did feel like we had to keep any special requests top of mind so they didn't get overlooked amid the mayhem! But that being said, JP captured our wedding spectacularly from every angle. We are absolutely gaga over our photos--they totally bring our vision to life!--and it's hard to believe this all came from him and his second shooter, Derrick (who was also wonderful). In short, wedding photography is about both the process and the product. We found the former to be natural, comfortable, and fun, and the latter to exceed our wildest dreams. Thanks JP!!!
