The way he makes you laugh with just a look. The lipstick stain he eagerly wipes off his cheek. The glint in your eye as he pats your backside when no one is watching. While these split-second situations tend to be dismissed, we take pleasure in knowing that these fleeting gestures define you. The real you. The real relationship. With equal parts of love, humor, and sincerity, our most satisfying endeavor is capturing the moments that tell the story of you. Read less

Joe is AWESOME! When we first met him, we knew we wanted to work with him and have him be a part of our day. Joe is so professional, yet so very friendly and easy to talk to at the same time! He took our engagement pictures, as well as wedding pictures - and we couldn't be happier with the results! He took unbelievable pictures capturing all the magical memories throughout our wedding day! He is quick to respond to emails and does a quick turnaround on receiving the pictures, which was great! Whenever we had a question (photography related or not), Joe was there to help up along the way to make our day go smoothly. We strongly recommend Joe and hope to work with him again in the future!!! :)

What isn't stressful about the big day! In looking for a photographer, Joe was listed on my wedding venues preferred list, he was the first photographer I met with and never reconsidered my choice! My Mom and I drove to his home studio to meet with him and check out options with weddings/look at albums. Joe was down to earth and I liked his style in looking at other wedding albums and also seemed reasonably priced to others out there as we wanted two photographers too. When I got home, I discussed with the hubby, emailed Joe and we had our photographer booked!

Prior to the wedding we did an engagement session with Joe at Tower Hill Garden for those familiar with the area, and it was a great opportunity to get to know each other and how to take a professional picture as my husband and I hadn't had professional pics done prior together. It was a lot of laughs and I was more than pleased with the end result.

Throughout the entire wedding process I was never stressed until the very end with all the last minute details. However, I never once worried about the pictures, etc. I knew I was in good hands. I was even 15 minutes late the day of the wedding and Joe was waiting gracefully at my parents house. The day of the wedding he kept us moving and also made sure the pictures I requested were done despite the craziness of the evening. Also Communication wise, Joe was always responsive and got back to me right away.

I would recommend Joe in a heartbeat to any bride out there who is contemplating a photographer. Post wedding, I already booked Joe to do a family portrait session and am once again very pleased. Needless to say I will use Joe whenever we need professional photos!

Joe was recommended to us by close friends, and we are so ecstatic we got to work with Joe! We had an engagement session with Joe along with our wedding photography. Our engagement photos were so unique and beautiful. Joe was on the ground in the farm field to capture some of the shots! We recently received our wedding photos and are so happy! We love them! Joe captured all of the small details and beautiful candid moments. We think it's really important to have a photographer you can feel comfortable around, and that was especially the case with Joe. He is so easy going and laid back and that's exactly what we wanted on our big day. Joe is professional, friendly, and very responsive. He always answered our questions quickly and provided advice. We are extremely grateful that Joe helped make our big day memorable and special. We would recommend Joe to anyone looking for beautiful photography!

We met Joe Dolen at Leicester Country Club's wedding fair of preferred vendors and his work instantly caught our eye. The photos looked natural, conveyed emotion, and captured the kind of moments you simply cannot pose for. His pre-wedding consultation put us at ease, and when you are planning your wedding day this is an extremely important quality for a vendor. He listened to all of our concerns and took careful notes of what types of photos we were looking for and which ones we would rather avoid. On the day of the wedding Joe's cheerful and easygoing manner was again on full display, engaging the wedding party in light conversation and reassuring us that rain or shine he was already catching great shots and that he had a plan if the clouds did turn to rain. Both during the ceremony and at the reception Joe had a way of disappearing into the background, you always knew he was around but he was never a distraction. He also immersed himself fully into the shoot; he was up on chairs, face down on the grass, literally popping up whenever anything special happened. And the end product is proof of it. We couldn't be happier with all of the images he delivered. The posed shots were just the way we wanted them, the candids looked like something out of a storybook, and it was simply amazing what he could do with shadows and light, both in color and black and white. When we received the flash drive containing all the photos we couldn't stop flipping through them over and over again. One month later it's still impossible to select a single favorite. Both my wife and I give Joe Dolen our thanks and complete recommendation.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Joe Dolen; an incredibly talented photographer with a unique eye of capturing beautiful moments! In planning our wedding, we knew photography was going to be one of the important things on our list that we wanted to invest in but we were looking for a photographer who takes more than just your “cookie cutter” pictures. The minute we met Joe and viewing his portfolio, we knew he was it! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this photographer. Joe took both of our engagement photos and wedding photos. We could not love them anymore! As every couple knows, your wedding goes by so quickly and it’s so disappointing once it is over. My husband and I feel beyond grateful that we have such amazing and gorgeous photos to look back on and remember the best day of our lives. We feel like we get to relive every minute. Joe captured so many amazing moments and beautiful photos of our wedding day. We knew our photos would come out great, since he did such a fantastic job with our engagement pictures but we did not expect them to be as beautiful as they are. We’ve received so many compliments and comments – but everything is due to his great work! ! To us, Joe was more than just our “wedding photographer”; he became a friend, so easy going and friendly. Joe has the ability to make you feel comfortable to be yourself when taking photos, which might not be something you do in your everyday life. Joe is always there to give advice, answer questions, or just bounce ideas off of. We always looked forward to our meetings with Joe, we loved catching up with him and discussing plans for our wedding! My husband and I know we will contact Joe for any photography needs we have in the future. We can’t imagine ever using anyone else. We would recommend Joe to anyone looking for great photos of any events in their life, especially one as important as a wedding!
