Joseph is a great guy and a beyond amazing photographer! He is so easy to work with. Any time I would email him, I would hear back almost immediately, which was so nice! He made my husband and I both feel so comfortable and we had so much fun during our engagement photos. The day of he worked so hard to get all the shots we wanted and still managed to let us get to our cocktail hour for a bit like we asked. During the ceremony and reception, he was everywhere and no where at the same time! All our guests were commenting how awesome he was and how amazing it was that he never got in the way since a lot of times photographers end up getting in the way trying to get good shots. I would definitely recommend him to every bride I meet. He is a down to earth, really cool guy who does amazing work!!

We loved working with Joseph for our May 31st wedding. We found Joseph Delgado on The Knot - and immediately loved his photos. We set up a skype meeting with him (as we lived in Atlanta and were planning our NJ wedding) and loved what he had to say. His rates and package offerings were competitive if not better than other photographers we inquired with and he takes beautiful photos. Throughout the whole process Joseph was extremely responsive, answering emails within the hour of me emailing him. The photos I think speak for themselves - he captured beautiful moments and images! So much so that my family and friends have not stopped commenting on the quality of each image. We highly highly recommend him - oh and did we mention that he takes positively beautiful pictures!

Joseph is an amazing photographer. He was always available to answer any questions I had prior to the wedding and was really flexible and attentive the day of my wedding. He did not make you feel over whelmed with taking pictures and made sure to get all the amazing shots. He was quick to have pictures posted to my blog for me to see after the wedding and was able to send me all of my pictures within 6 weeks of my wedding. If you are looking for someone to capture your big day he is the one to go with.

Joseph Delgado was the photographer for our wedding on December, 28th 2013. Joe not only was an amazing photographer, but an even better person. From the first time we met Joe, we knew right away that he was going to be a pleasure to work with and was going to make our day as special as it could be. Joe is a charismatic and funny person, which made him very easy to work with. From the start with our engagement session, he made us extremely comfortable and went out of his way to reinforce that this whole experience was ours – he would add his suggestions which we loved but at the end of the day we could make it what we wanted.

Another thing that really impressed us was how organized Joe was – before our wedding day, we knew exactly how the time was going to be spent in terms of the first look, bridal party portraits, family portraits, etc. and when they were going to be throughout the day. It really helped ease our minds because we had so many pictures we wanted to capture, but also wanted to make sure we were able to maximize our time at the reception and Joe made that happen exactly as we wanted. Lastly, we were very impressed with the creativity that Joe brought to the table. His photography skills blew us out of the water, creating different poses and using different lighting, angles, lenses, that would have never crossed our minds. Without someone with a creative mind like Joe, we would have never gotten some of the spectacular pictures that we did that really captured the feel of our wedding day. Overall, our experience with the Joseph Delgado Photography team was a 10 out of 10, and I would recommend them to any future couples planning their wedding as he will help to make your day perfect. Thanks a million Joe!

We found Joseph Delgado on The Knot in October 2012 and knew as soon as we spoke with him that he was going to capture the beauty of our wedding day. He was very personable, professional, and his originality really showed. We immediately book 2 engagement sessions, one in the winter and one in the summer, and could not be happier with the outcome. We had a great time with Joe as well. When it came to the wedding day on September 28th 2013 at The Molly Pitcher Inn in Red bank N.J, he and his staff really treated us special. They made the bride feel like a princess (me) ;-), and captured every aspect of our day. We highly recommend Joe for any occasion that may be special to you and your family. We can't wait for our album!

I searched through a lot of photographer websites before I found Joseph Delgado. A few good photographers, which were out of our budget, and a lot of mediocre ones who didn't fit the style and feel we were going for. I set up a meeting with Joseph after a few preliminary emails, and went to meet him at his house with my mother. He responds to emails very quickly, with any questions or concerns you may have. He was very kind, relaxed, informative and answered any questions we had. His work speaks for itself! He is easy to get along with, professional, and confidant, all of which defiantly help put any jitters you may have at ease. The engagement session photo shoot is included in all his packages, and was a lot of fun! You get all hi-res images on a flash drive, some photographers will only give you prints of the images you choose for your album. That was a big plus! The day of the wedding Joseph arrived on time with his assistant and a second shooter went to take pictures of the men getting ready. The whole day ran super smooth, Joseph and his crew were very professional and flexible to anything that came up, we didn't have a very structured 'wedding timeline'. The pictures came out amazing, I couldn't ask for anything more! I will recommend Joseph Delgado to anyone and everyone who asks for a wedding/event photographer.

My parents threw my fiance and I an engagement party in NJ at a country club, and we hired Joseph to photograph the event. We vacillated a lot on whether we should hire Joseph or go with a cheaper photographer, and Joseph patiently fielded many calls from me as we decided.

I'm so glad we went with Joseph! Hiring Joseph was the best choice we made and worth every penny! His photos were so beautiful and captured the happiness day. Joseph was extremely professional, friendly and easy to work with. As we were coordinating his services, he always got back to us quickly. On the day of, we decided last minute that we wanted to change the time he arrived and hire him for an extra hour. He was super easy going about it. He also showed up to venue early and made a lot of recommendations on how we should rearrange some of the furniture to make sure we got the best pictures. I really appreciated his attention to detail and professionalism. Finally, after the event, I pinged him to see if I could get a few photos early to use for our "Save the date" for our wedding. He answered my email within minutes and had photos ready within hours! It was awesome.

I'd also like to note that my fiance and I are both of Indian origin and Joseph did great with an Indian event. We are so happy with his photos and my whole family loves them. If we were getting married in NJ we'd definitely use him for our wedding, but alas, we are getting married in California. That said, I hope to work with Joseph again to photograph more family memories in the future!

Joseph Delgado was our photographer for our wedding on August 31, 2013. From our first interaction with Joseph (via email) we knew that we had found THE photographer we wanted to work with. He responded to all of our emails and phone calls almost immediately so we knew we could rely on him.
When we first met Joseph, he was knowledgeable and very easy to talk to; he was interested in getting to know us before the "big day" so that he could capture the "real" us. He was honest and trustworthy, so this reconfirmed that he was the perfect photographer for our wedding.
During our engagement photo shoot, we found it extremely easy to be ourselves while working with Joseph. The moments that he captured were amazing which made us even more excited for him to be at our wedding.
Mid-way through our wedding planning, we asked Joseph if we could add additional services to our package. When he said yes, he also honored all of the prices we had originally discussed and his true professionalism shined.
When the wedding day came, Joseph and his team arrived and immediately got to work. Although we were not quite ready, the team shot some of the details of our wedding. Although my husband and I tried to plan the perfect timeline for our day, we fell behind schedule. Joseph and his assistants, Tony and Frank, worked tirelessly to ensure that all of the shots that we requested were taken. When we weren't sure if we had time to visit my grandmother who is in a nursing home, Joseph assured us that we did, and came to the nursing home with us to capture those very special moments.
Joseph Delgado has an amazing eye, and his photography is stunning. He went above and beyond our expectations and was an absolute pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to contact Joseph in the future and look forward to working with him again.

We found Joseph Delgado Photography through Google search. With my fiance--now husband--taking up photography as a hobby, and both us being artists, we were very picky about which photographer we hired.

As soon as we saw Joseph's portfolio, we knew he would be the right photographer for us. We liked that he had a variety--from perfect formals, well-focused action and dancing shots, creative angles, to breathtaking landscapes. He's also superb at catching candid moments and he's not afraid to try different things.

Joseph is super accommodating and professional (always got back to us via email immediately), really friendly and humorous (got us to shed our camera shyness!), and very hardworking (he will crouch on his knees to get a perfect photo). From our engagement session to our wedding day, we felt really comfortable with him and got excellent quality photos. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer in New Jersey.

When we first met with Joseph, we knew immediately that we'd like to hire him. He was down to earth, friendly, and most importantly, talented. He offered us an engagement session included in the price, which was fantastic not only because we now have some beautiful plain clothes photos of the two of us, but also because we got to know him, and he gave us some great pointers on how to look our best in photos on the big day. On the day of the wedding, he was 30 minutes early to ensure he had time to set up. His assistants and second shooter were friendly and professional. We received our edited photos very soon after our wedding date, and we could not have been more pleased. My non-photographer friends think the photos are beautiful, and my photographer friends think that Joseph's work is some of the best they've seen. They're especially impressed with his use of light and seemingly little editing/filters that needed to be put on after the fact. I absolutely, positively recommend him.

If you want beautiful wedding pictures that will capture your day perfectly, then hire Joseph Delgado! Joseph is extremely professional, talented, responsive, and flexible. He was a pleasure to work with, and was always able to put the people he was photographing at ease. Not only are his pictures a work of art, but they are very creative, breathtaking, and gorgeous! My husband and I can't wait to use him again for our future events and for family photography! We highly recommend that you hire Joe for all your future photography needs as well! Thank you, Joe!

Joseph Delgado was our photographer for our wedding at the Sand Castle Winery. We loved working with him. He was very professional, fun and had a lot of creative ideas. We've seen a couple of the photos so far and they look amazing- better than we could've imagined. My husand hates taking photos and even he said he had a blast! We highly recommend Joseph Delgado and when we are in need of a photographer in the future, he will be the one we call!

Joe was absolutely amazing!! My husband and I already knew he did a great job from our engagement pictures but he blew those out of the water with our wedding pictures!! I loved every single picture almost 700 pictures and I loved them all! The day of the wedding Joe showed up early, was extremely professional and not intrusive at all. I even was told by friends and guest how professional and respectful he was. He's very thorough and came very prepared, he was more prepared than I was! He was a saint for dealing with my go with flow mentallity and he covered all areas, the boring family shots my mom had to have to taking a picture of my bald husband balancing his wedding band on his head :). I'm going to recommend Joe to everyone and we are going to use him for life!

My husband and I recently used Joseph for our December wedding. We wish there were enough words to express how incredibly talented he is! From when we first got in contact with Joseph until our wedding day, he was always so responsive! His professionalism and true desire to create one-of-a-kind photographs were just a few of the reasons we chose to hire Joe. He begins giving you "sneak peaks" of your images within days of your event and leaves you speechless with the quality of his work! He is the hardest working photographer we have ever seen and really goes out of his way to capture every single detail. He follows through with all of his promises and makes sure he tours your venue with you so he's already a step ahead of the game on your special day. We could not be more pleased with our choice to hire Joseph. To any bride or groom that wants THE BEST wedding photographs, HIRE JOE! You will not be disappointed!!! Thank you, Joe! You have a gift!!!!

We haven't had our wedding yet but as a part of our package Joe including an engagement picture session and we could not love him more! He keeps in constant communication, he's extremely thorough and very professional. His pricing is more than reasonable and his quality of work is extraordinary! We scheduled fall engagement pictures and they ended up being after hurricane sandy, Joe researched and found a breath taking park unaffected by the storm. I am extremely picky and critical when it comes to pictures of myself and my fiancé is not one to smile, we are in love with every picture we got from our session (we even have a bunch of my fiancé smiling!). We are completely confident our wedding pictures will be beautiful and have told Joe he is our photographer for life!

Joe has been wonderful to work with ever since we met him. His photos speak for themselves in terms of the quality of work (and value for the money!) - check out his blog and website to see for yourself. We took engagement photos with him this fall (it is included free as part of his wedding packages) and it was a great way to get comfortable with Joe and in front of the camera. He has always been super responsive by phone and email, and provided us with a very quick turn around time on photos (only about a week!!). I would highly recommend his photography to any friends or family. We cannot wait to see the magic he captures at our wedding this summer!!

Joe is a class act. Professional, prompt, responsive, and will help you with almost anything! Independent, reliable, and honest are the best way to describe Joe. The man absolutely knows what to do with a camera, like an artist with a paintbrush - he truly puts together magnificent works of art. If you're looking for a team member, someone you will feel comfortable capturing the most important times of your lives, pick JOE.

Joe will be there for every shot, but it will feel like he isn’t even there. He will guide you thru your poses with his vast years of knowledge and expertise. He is truly gifted and is far to under priced. Thanks Joe for your hard work throughout our wedding, god bless!

Joseph is really amazing!!! Choosing a fabulous photographer was my #1 priority. He truly is an artist. He is totally professional, punctual, responsive to emails and accommodating to my needs.
I've had friends comment to me that they had their breath completely taken away after viewing our photos. He has an incredible gift as you can see from his website, blog.
After the wedding, the photos were ready in a very timely manner. Again, Joseph was very responsive to questions/comments that we had. We were absolutely thrilled with the results, and have received many compliments on the quality and artistry of our pictures.

Thank you Joseph for shooting our wedding and we highly recommend him to anyone that wants to treasure their wedding photos for the rest of their lives.
