"We got very lucky when we found Julia and Tess - both very talented photographers, they agreed to come out to document the best day of our lives, even though they were only a week or so away from graduating from NYU. They did a wonderful job capturing everything from the biggest moments to the smallest details, along with a couple of awesome candids along the way."
"Tess and Julia, our wedding photographers who listened patiently to everything we hoped the day would include, and then did an incredible job taking pictures of every moment: from church, to garden, to reception, they were professional, unintrusive when it called for it, and best of all, lovely and fun."

“Tess was a joy to work with! I actually booked another photographer in the New York/Jersey area but he had to cancel last minute because of family emergency. He sent me Tess' information and with less than 2 days notice she rearranged her schedule to accommodate our shoot. On top of that she was professional, approachable, and made my husband and I very comfortable. We are absolutely thrilled with how our pictures turned out and would recommend Tess in a heart beat!”

“Tess & Julia are literally the BEST!! They photographed my brother's wedding and that is when I first fell in love with their work. Therefore, when I got engaged a year later, I knew I had to have them photograph my wedding. I have been a part of many weddings and I can say for certain that nobody captures the moment quite like Tess & Julia. Every time we look at our photos we feel like we are back at our wedding day and get to relive our happiness through their work. I cannot say enough about how professional they were but also how fun they made our day (and calmed us down the months before our wedding- answering any questions we may have had immediately). If you truly want the best photographers to capture your perfect day, you will pick Tess & Julia and you won't regret it!”

"My husband and I are so happy to have worked with Tess and Julia for our wedding. We felt like they went above and beyond our expectations. They took the time to meet with us beforehand to get a sense of our vision for the wedding. This really helped to put my mind at ease. On the day of the wedding they had so many great ideas and really took charge during our portrait session. Everything felt effortless on our part and the photos are FABULOUS!! They really captured the vibe of our big day and our guests are still raving about the photos. Tess and Julia are outstanding and truly talented. Thank you both for your positivity, professionalism, and for making us look gorgeous on our big day :)"
