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!

Joe was absolutely amazing. He spent the entire day with us, taking pictures before and after the ceremony, at the reception, and even came into Boston with us to take pictures at sunset. He was calm, cool and collected (on quite a warm & humid day) and kept everyone relaxed throughout the process. His vision and creativity is amazing, and the few photos I've seen so far are breath-taking. I was told it is so important to be comfortable with your photographer, and we couldn't have found a better fit for our special day.

When my parents were married 30+ years ago (this was before digital), my mother's cousin was an aspiring photographer. He offered to shoot their wedding and create an album for them as their wedding gift. My parents accepted. To make a long story short, when her cousin was developing the pictures, he exposed all of the film to natural light, destroying all of the images. 30 years later, I can see how much my parents regret not hiring a professional photographer. Its because of this that finding the perfect photographer was so important to me. We kept our wedding very modest, but wanted to spare no expense on the perfect photographer. As soon as we sat down with Joe, and looked at his previous work, we knew immediately we wanted him for our wedding. We were not disappointed. We could not be be happier with the quality of our pictures - and the album he put together for us is absolutely stunning. We continue to get compliments on our pictures - and many friends since our wedding have sought Joe out for their own wedding. We used Joe Dolen Photography for our engagement and wedding pictures, and we will definitely be using his services as we begin to expand our family!

Joe was wonderful. We were very happy with all of the pictures that came back, and they were ready far before we thought they would be. On the day of the wedding, Joe was a pleasure to work with. He ensured that everything went smoothly and I was grateful to have him there. I would recommend Joe to anyone looking for a photographer for their upcoming wedding.

Joe put my husband and I completely at ease from day 1 (which is hard to do when neither of you likes getting your picture taken!)
The package we drew up was great value, an excellent price for the services we wanted and nothing we didn't need/want.
Before the wedding we met with Joe to outline the shots we wanted to have taken. We asked he keep the photo session to 45 mins so we could spend time at our party and he was great about respecting that while still getting all the shots we wanted.
On the day he was constantly running around getting all those important pics but I only know this because I have seen the photographs. He was amazingly inobtrusive... I barely knew he was there until he asked me if there was anything else I needed or wanted him to capture.
We got our proofs in less than 2 weeks (and would have had them sooner if we hadn't been away) and within a week of that he was ready to start on the album. The photographs are beautiful, really capturing the day for us. I can't wait to see the album!
I recommend Joe to anyone.

Joe was gracious enough to photograph our wedding for us this past June. We are so impressed with his style and creativity with our pictures. He made the entire process seamless and quick, and as stress-free as possible. Not only was he professional and fun to work with, we feel as though we have also made a life-long friend in the process. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day, and we were honored to have him as such a huge part of our special day. We highly recommend Joe and his staff and urge everyone to try him out! A true professional with a very bright future ahead of him!! We will be going back to Joe for any and all of our photographic needs.

My husband and I enjoyed our experience with Joe beginning with our first appointment at his office. He was very flexible with our wishes - payment plan, traveling to NYC for our engagement photos, and very easy to get in touch with through the whole process! Joe even would reach out to us in advance for information, which was great to keep us on track and in the loop! The best part was that he got so many great shots, but we did not feel overwhelmed with the photos at any part of our wedding. We really had a chance to enjoy our wedding and know that Joe, and his colleague, were taking great photos! I look forward to working with Joe in the future for other events and photo sessions!

Joe was extremely professional and definitely worth the money we spent. He was wonderful to work with throughout our event; from our engagement photos to the final photo album. Joe was invisible during our ceremony, getting unique angles we wouldn't have even thought of. He went above and beyond during our reception with hundreds of beautiful shots. Our families were extremely impressed as well. We would absolutely recommend Joe for any event, especially a wedding.
