There really are no words that will do Ralph and his team justice, but I will try. It's true that talent is required to take beautiful pictures and Ralph has talent. I will talk about his photography skills in just a minute, but first I want to talk about the man behind the... Read More camera. Ralph is one of those people who you meet and instantly there's a connection. He is warm, his smile is contagious and he is just a laid back, super fun person to be around. I hate getting my picture taken (I still do) but with Ralph there was no pressure. He made us laugh and the entire experience was enjoyable. We knew after our engagement photos we picked the right person. We were all scheduled for our November wedding when we got hit with some news that made us hastily move up our date. I called Ralph and he was flexible and accommodating and sensitive to our situation. It was never about him or his service it was about us and what he could do to help us and make our day as perfect as every wedding day could be. On the day of our wedding Ralph not only accommodated us, but my family also. He had too many people asking him to take certain pictures that they wanted. How he managed to keep my guest happy - while not compromising anything we wanted is beyond me. He is patient and he is kind. We received our pictures back in record time. The presentation of our album and our proofs was amazing. We weren't hanging out with our photographer we were hanging out with an old friend. The way he displayed the proofs and our online album for us to review was unexpected and so special. From our first meeting, to our engagement session to the wedding and the review plus the follow ups to check to see how we are doing - Ralph has spent hours with us. He is an amazing person to be around and time goes by so fast. He has never rushed a conversation or a meeting. He is professional and candid and funny as hell. Our pictures speak for themselves. Take a look at his gallery. His work is amazing and it's the work of bridal magazines. He gave us a gift. Not only do we have beautiful images of our wedding, but we have fun pictures of the party that ensued and I have the last moments with my mom. We cannot thank Ralph enough for all that he did to make our wedding memorable. Ralph really should be your first and only call. With Ralph it;'s the experience not just photos. With Ralph you gain an extension of your family.

Is there word limit on this?? I have too many good things to say. From the day I met Ralph I knew I wanted to work with him. While his work speaks for itself, its his personality and style that sealed the deal for me. He is the kind of guy that makes you want to find more... Read More reasons to work with him. Ralph and his team were stellar the day of our wedding. Funny, kind, and extremely talented. They made jokes but also gave us pointers (look here, chin up) that made out pictures look so good. Looking back at our pictures, it is clear that he is not the "point and shoot" kind of photographer I was used to seeing. All of our pictures are have a magical quality to them..they have something unique about them and this has not gone unnoticed by our family and friends. Do yourself a favor and book with Ralph, I mean it. He is a gem!

Ralph is THE BEST. He was the first photographer we met with and from our first meeting, my husband and I knew that Ralph was fun, friendly, and easy-going. We looked through the wedding albums that he brought with him and knew we immediately know that Ralph was the perfect... Read More match for us. Immediately following our meeting, I sat in the car next to my fiancé (now husband) and said, "Can we hire him now?! I love him!!" We looked at other photographers but no one even came close compared to Ralph and his work. We hired Ralph and he and his team absolutely went above and beyond for our wedding nupitals. He was SO easy to work with and responded immediately to any questions and/or concerns. For our engagement shoot, he traveled down to LBI and captured our very first professional photos together. My husband and I were pretty nervous and are pretty camera shy but Ralph made the shoot so much fun! Our pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL! I can't even tell you how many great photos we got that evening! We even used the engagement photos for our Save the Dates. Ralph and his team did an excellent job capturing all aspects of our wedding weekend. He was even willing to stop by our rehearsal dinner to snap a few shots. Although Ralph was not able to come due to a wedding (in which we knew of before hand), he sent someone from his team to take a few photos. I absolutely LOVE one shot she got of us on the Union League of Philadelphia's staircase. It is one of my favorite pictures from that weekend! Ralph and his team are EXCELLENT! Words cannot explain how happy I am with our wedding photos. I am literally crying writing this review as just even remembering the photos he took brings me back to our perfect wedding day. Our family and friends cannot stop talking about how amazing our photos are. After Ralph posted a few on Facebook, I had SO many friends/family/acquaintances ask about our photographer. Of course, we were more than happy to recommend Ralph! A huge thank you to Ralph and his team for capturing so wonderfully the best day of our lives!! If I could give Ralph 100 gold stars, I would!! :-)

Finding the perfect photographer was the most important part of our wedding day to me-- how else could I remember the day without it? I wanted a specific type of look from a photographer that I couldn't describe but knew that once I found it, it would be the one. My husband and... Read More I looked at countless photographers work before we came across Ralph. To say I was amazed was an understatement. I called right away and he was so friendly, it was like talking to an old friend. He was thorough, kind, and available on my wedding day so we booked him right away. We scheduled an engagement shoot and Ralph spent hours walking around Olde City with us, looking for the perfect lighting and perfect shots. He was so upbeat and full of energy. I was thrilled with our engagement photos. The day of our wedding, he was early and ready to go. He made me so comfortable and calm when my nerves were the exact opposite. My hairdressers ran late and I worried after that we might not have gotten enough photos-- I was so beyond shocked when we got our photos back. There were so many beautiful shots. I can't put into words how perfect they were and what a great job he did with a not so perfect (lighting-wise) venue. I will treasure the photos for the rest of my life and I am so thankful we found Ralph. I couldn't recommend him enough!

When we started planning our wedding, people consistently talked about the photographer. Either how great they are or more so the horror stories...After all, pictures are the only thing you have to show for that day after it is all done and over with. So needless to say we did a... Read More lot of research when choosing our photographer. I am very uneasy in front of the camera so we were looking for more candid photos and a photographer who made us comfortable. We met with Ralph and his easy going fun, yet professional, personality meshed perfect with ours. During the planning process, he was always quick to respond to e-mails and questions. We greatly appreciate the time he took with us before the wedding to go over his extensive questionnaire relative to what type of pictures were important to us and the timeline of the day. We had a DIY wedding on a family member's horse farm with a private ceremony and pig roast reception under a tent so the decor and details were important to us. We really wanted it to be casual and didn't have many of the traditional wedding formalities. Our wedding day was perfect! We had beautiful weather and the entire day was surreal! Ralph and his crew (Greg and Gina) were so great to deal with...it was like hanging out with friends which really helped me forget the camera was there. Anytime I was feeling awkward, Ralph gave me direction, where to put my hands, where to look, etc. We had quite the adventure through fields, high grasses, sticker bushes, etc. but it was well worth it. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful! They are very picturesque but also capture the moment. It's amazing how he captured the love and casual atmosphere through the photos. Our pictures truly tell our wedding story. We couldn't be happier with Ralph!

Ralph was absolutely incredible to work with and is extremely talented!

He has the most calming personality and is constantly reassuring... Read More you that everything will be great and has the talent to back it up. Perfect example - We hired Ralph after a successful engagement shoot in NY. Not only did he meet us in NYC, but when my husband and I went to the wrong location and were almost 30 minutes late, he stayed calm, cool, and collected and stayed longer than he had scheduled in order to ensure we got all of the great photos he wanted to take. I was so frazzled but he ensured me not to worry, calmed me down, and we ended up getting beautiful photos. That had me sold, and then he further proved himself leading up to and on our wedding day. He took the time to drive around the city with us ahead of our wedding to select different locations to shoot and we later prioritized such locations to ensure if we ran low on time, we had a plan. The day ran so smoothly and I never looked at the time once because I knew he had everything covered. I am so excited to create our album, but I know it will be difficult because we have so many incredible photos to choose from! THANK YOU Ralph and your entire staff for capturing the most perfect night of our lives!
