Artistic & Creative Storytelling

Welcome to Twisted Oaks Studio (Top 100 Wedding Photography Studios). We are a team of talented photographers with the same vision... to tell the authentic story of your wedding through images that will simply blow your mind. Our goal is to provide an all-around unique experience that starts from the time we meet, til well past your wedding day. We want you to enjoy spending time with us on your big day, so we want you to feel comfortable and have fun, while also not knowing we are even there most of the day. Our approach to the wedding day is to sit back and let your story unfold all on its own, while we capture moments like a fly on the wall. We also like to take some time with the bride and groom creating epic imagery where we mix in some directing while still allowing real emotion.

Thank you Jay and Sandi so much, you are both incredible people and photographers and just awesome. From booking with you guys a year and a half before the wedding, through an engagement, boudoir, wedding, mini-wedding and surprise wreck the dress shoot you guys were... Read More unbelievable and made us not worry about a thing! We had a blast at our wedding, and you guys were the main reason that we didn't totally freak out about being over an hour late for pictures the morning of the wedding! We stayed calm because we knew no matter how late we were, that our pictures would be incredible. You guys even took your time with us that morning to let us hike around in the woods and climb into trees! Then your willingness to come out and take pictures for us with Nana, for our separate celebration with her, meant the world to all of us, and will be pictures we truly cherish. Immediately after that, the spur of the moment wreck the dress shoot was just an extra fun addition that I think is hilarious and awesome! You guys are both so down to earth and TOTALLY have the ability to shoot an insane number of weddings while keeping a personal touch (And the personalities to be friends with everyone!) So to wrap this all up... THANK YOU!!!

I cannot say better things about Twisted Oaks Studio! I went with Twisted Oaks Associates and got Angela and John and they were absolutely amazing!! I'm originally from the NYC area, and I've moved away for work, but when it came down to where I was going to have my wedding, I...

Look no further. Twisted oaks studio was hands down the best decision we made about our wedding. We had the pleasure of working with Jay and Sandi for both our engagement pictures and wedding. My husband and I are very into hiking and Jay and Sandi had no hesitation when we... Read More asked if they would be up for a 5 mile hike at Ricketts Glenn state park for our engagement pictures. The pictures were AMAZING…our family/friends kept telling us how they so perfectly captured “us.” Even after my husband got us lost in a state park…at night…with no flash lights…3 hours away from home… they even showed up for our wedding, and thank god for that! Our wedding pictures are on another level! My father cries when he looks at their pictures, I can’t decide what ones I’m going to hang in my home and I’m already scheming to see when/what we can work with them on again. Not only are they super creative, but they are also down to earth, fun, and awesome people to have around on your wedding day. Do yourselves a favor and book with twisted oaks studio to get some magazine worthy pictures on your special day!!!

We cannot even put into words how amazing our experience with Twisted Oaks was! We booked them for our wedding on 7/7/17 and we had Doug as our photographer, and it was the best experience ever!

Where do I begin? My fiancé and I are getting married abroad and had the difficult task of finding a photographer to shoot just our engagement pictures. With SO many photographers out there, I took to social media to find someone with a unique eye and a knack for romantic photos... Read More in natural light. I kept stumbling on photos that I loved and realized that the common thread was Twisted Oaks Studio. From the second we reached out, Jay and Sandi had been super responsive, friendly and warm. We had to reschedule several times because the weather wasn't cooperating , but let me tell you, Sandi was so completely understanding and almost insisted we reschedule because she wanted us to have incredible photos just as much as we did!! We finally had the chance to meet Jay and Austin on a perfect day and it was absolutely worth the wait. My fiancé and I couldn't believe how much fun we were having, after thinking it would be an awkward experience (we don't take many photos!). We haven't seen all of the photos just yet, but Jay sent over a few teasers and they are INCREDIBLE. We were blown away (I couldn't believe it was us!!) and can't wait to fill our walls with the amazing photos Jay and Austin took. We highly recommend Twisted Oaks Studio to anyone looking to capture dreamy, romantic, Pinterest worthy photos that you'll cherish forever!! Extremely professional, personable and amazing at what they do!!

We loved working with Cecilia and Austin on our wedding day (and Sandi via email)! We had a nor'easter on our wedding day, so needless to say there was a lot of changes that had to be made last minute. Cecilia and Austin were awesome in figuring out how to make everything seem... Read More seamless, including Cecilia calming my nerves about the 100% chance of rain the week before. We initially chose to go with Twisted Oak because of how beautifully edited the photos were, and we were not disappointed with how BEAUTIFUL our photos turned out. We received the photos exactly in the timeline they told us, and they did a great job communicating with us throughout the entire process (before and after the wedding). I was thrilled both with customer service and product with Twisted Oaks!

Doug and John made our day! It is easy to see how beautiful Twisted Oaks Studio creates their photos! For our wedding, my husband and I really wanted a photographer who could pull the beauty out of our day, while still looking natural. Doug and John did just that! They were also... Read More wonderful at making us genuinely laugh throughout the day! I love how the photos came out, they were magical! My only critique is I wish I knew earlier in the planning process the suggested time of how long the photos were expected to take and I would have moved the timeline up an hour to accommodate. While boys have plenty of time to get ready and my husband had an individual shot with each groomsmen, I felt like I only had time for group shots with my ladies. That being said, those shots are filled with the joy I felt on the day and perfect! You will be very happy if you choose Twisted Oaks for your day!

Cecilia and Austin were fabulous from Twisted Oaks. Our wedding day it was raining, overcast and so muggy and they were our power source. They watched the weather and got us outside when they could. From the sneak peek it looks like my husband and I are in Vogue. The pictures... Read More are insane and I cannot wait to see the rest. They are truly talented, patient and professional. When Cecilia suggested we go outside for more pictures at different moments and she said "two minutes" she meant it and let us enjoy ourselves as much as possible. I am so happy I got to work with them!

Twisted Oaks pictures are so beautiful we are so happy that we ended up choosing them as our wedding photographer. We worked with Laura Napoli, one of the associates. Laura and Jon were so nice and so great to work with. They had great ideas for all of our wedding party shots,... Read More and worked so well with our videographers. It was like one big team even though they worked for separate companies. They also got great shots from our reception, but it didn't feel like they were in the way or blocking any special moment so of the night.

The entire team at Twisted Oaks is very kind, creative, skilled, responsive and prompt! If you are looking for truly special photographers, who specialize in producing candid, beautiful and artful images of your wedding day, Twisted Oaks is the group for you. They will also work... Read More with your budget, which is extremely helpful. I spent a lot of time searching through different photographers amidst my wedding planning, as I was looking for a very specific aesthetic. Once I came upon Twisted Oaks portfolio, I knew I found what I was looking for. There is such beauty and emotion in all of their wedding photos. I wanted to have images that really encapsulated the feeling of my wedding day, so that I could look back on for the rest of my life and recall that feeling. Once I received my completed set of photos, I confirmed I found the right photographers. All set up and communication with Jay or Sandi was seamless. Even when my final payment got lost in the mail, Sandi was very patient when I had to re-send it past the due date. Cecilia shot my engagement photos, and along with Austin she also my wedding photos. We truly enjoyed having both Cecilia and Austin with us on our special day to capture so many beautiful moments. Cecilia is not only very talented, but also really funny and great at directing rowdy wedding parties to get the shots you want while keeping you on your timeline. I'm so beyond pleased with all of my photos and I will treasure them always. Friends and family have raved about to gorgeous quality of the photos. Thank you Twisted Oaks for all that you have done for us.
