Having attended the prestigious International Center of Photography in midtown Manhattan, Joseph Lin is technically trained in making his photos vibrant and beautiful but it is his quirky demeanor that brings about the reactionary joy & personality in his subjects. Born and raised in Manhattan, his facetious character is an asset to any lively environment, making him a popular choice for many event planners in the region. Never dragging along with his camera and always full of optimistic energy that can only be seen for individuals who truly love what they do. And once he event comes to a close, expect him to spend endless nights gargling in java to ensure that every photo presented to his clients are bodies of art. Joseph's work can regularly be seen in the Daily News and Brides Magazine. He was also the photographer for the show "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?" Read less

Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, High Resolution Images, Matted Prints, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
That's the best thing about wedding photography. Unlike many other avenues of photography, you have limited control of lighting and environment. So we're experienced and are often exposed to situations where one has to adapt and work with what is given on hand. As an example: I actually like rainy days...not that I hope for rain. =)
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. I take great pride in my own work and as well as my relationship with my couples.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never more than 1 in a day. Often, 2 in a weekend. But I have fresh legs.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Every good photographer has to have a plan B, C & D.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Here’s my equipment list: 
 Body: 
 2 Canon 5D Mark ii’s
 1 Canon 1Ds Mark III
 Lenses: 
 Canon 85 1.2 
 Canon 50 1.2
 Canon 16-35 2.8
 Canon 24-70 2.8
 Canon 70-200 2.8
 
 2 Canon Speedlite 580 EXII's
 
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Again, every good photographer has a plan B,C & D.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
My packages are on my website.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I do, $350 per hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
It would be nice for my brides & grooms to provide a meal. But if not, please advise me before hand to bring my own.
Do you charge for travel?
Not unless you're outside of the great NY/NJ area.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
3-4 Weeks
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Forever.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do, for printing, advertising and editorial purposes.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Definitely. Nor do I charge for them either.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Flush mount.
When will the client get the final album?
It all depends on how fast they get back to me. Often times, 3-4 months.

Joe photographed our small, private wedding in 2013 and he did such a beautiful job we hired him again to do our bigger reception a year later. We've had several vendors comment that the wedding photos he took are the most beautiful they've ever seen, and imagine how many wedding photos vendors see! Also, I'm a wedding photographer so this was one of the most important elements for me and one I was pretty picky about.

My husband and I found out about Joe through a friend. She had him as her photographer at her wedding. Saw the pictures, we booked an appointment right away, and the rest was history.

First time meeting him, we immediately felt at ease. I was comfortable enough to even give him a hug first time we saw him! We had gone through a few photographers before Joe but our meeting with him different. He was the first one that did not try to sell his pictures to us unlike the others we've interviewed. Instead he wanted to know more about us as a couple... and was actually interested at hearing our story! It was a no-brainer. This guy was as easy-going as us, he's super funny, we shared similar interests, and last but not least - he takes great pictures!! After the interview, I gave him another hug, and we booked him as soon as we could.

We could go on and on raving about his work: how awesome our engagement pictures turned out to be, how professional and friendly he (and his second photographer also named Joe) was to our friends and family during the wedding...but obviously you'd know that by now reading the other reviews before ours.

We gave him a 5 star not only because of his talent and professionalism, but also because he is honest (he's not afraid to give his own opinions and inputs regarding your requests), he gives great direction (for all you camera-shy couples out there, have no fear! he'll make you look good on your pictures!), and not to mention he has a great sense of humor =) People need to realize it's not just the photographer's pictures you should look into, but also how you get along with them. But I don't know how anyone could not get along with this guy unless they're living under a rock. We could not thank him enough for being there for us on our special day but better yet, he is now one of our good friends! Not all newlyweds can say that about their photographer! We love Joe Lin!!!

Joe was an amazing photographer - flexible, engaging, and so incredibly talented. We loved taking both our engagement pictures and seeing our wedding pictures. Our engagement pictures were taken around Manhattan and our wedding was outside at winery in the Hudson Valley. Even with the dramatic differences in landscape and lighting, we felt like Joe capture the essence of each place we were at, the occasion, our relationship, all our friends and family at the best moments, and all the fun we had. Couldn't have asked for more!

Searching for a photographer was one of the hardest things we did during the wedding planning process. We met Joe Lin at a Bridal show in Manhattan and just from a quick glimpse of his work (in a fast paced show) I wanted to be sure to get his brochure so I can look into his work. Again, after one glimpse of his webpage - I fell in love with his work and couldnt wait to meet him. Once we met, it was no question that we wanted him to be our photographer - his personality was just awesome. After seeing all the pictures from our engagement shoot and wedding, we couldnt be happier with our choice. He was an absolute pleasure to work with - fun, extremely professional, very passionate about his work, and he captures beautiful (and I mean gorgeous), in the moment, natural pictures. He really is an artist and his pictures really do tell an awesome story (he seems to live his life to the fullest, truly appreciates it, and knows how to capture it all on camera). We would recommend him to everyone. Check him out - you'll be glad you did. =) - E.H.

Words cannot describe how beautiful Joe's work is. His eye and artistic sense are incredible - he managed to capture moments and emotion from our day that we'll forever treasure. In addition to the stunning photographs, Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with. We recommend him to all of our friends who are in the process of planning their weddings, as we truly do feel that he made our wedding even more special that we could have ever imagined. THANK YOU JOE!

Joe is an amazing person to work with! We originally were leaning towards another photographer but after speaking with Joe, his knowledge and the candid conversation we had with regards to wedding photos (i.e. what to look for) really showed his experience in the field. He showed us weddings he photographed from start to finish rather than just focusing on highlights and we saw that there's a lot of detail and work put into every shot.

During our engagement shoot, Joe went out of his way to get to know us and make sure we were comfortable (since it isn't everyday that we have couple photoshoots and we aren't crazy about PDA!). We haven't taken a ton of photos of ourselves in the 8 years we've been together, so I was anxious about the results. The photos were incredible and I was so happy to share them with everyone we knew. After then, we jokingly agreed (but were somewhat serious) that we should have couple shots done on a yearly basis with Joe! We definitely couldn't get enough! We especially loved the candid photos he took during our wedding. Joe really understood our personalities and was able to capture the most important moments of our day. He is an easygoing and fun person to be around so it made our experience infinitely enjoyable.

I have not written this review yet because I knew that once I did it would be a long one. Joe was 100000000% the best vendor decision I made, hands down. I was completely satisfied with all of my vendors and they were all great, but Joe was above and beyond. I actually randomly came upon him from a wedding showcase that I went to so I had no word of mouth recommendation and had to go with my gut. I am so glad I did.

Photos and Skill: Joe is an amzing photographer. You can just see this from his work. Not only does he get the shots you ask him for, but he adds his own professional and artistic (but not too artsy) touch to every single one. Joe and his assistant didn't miss a beat during the entire day. From the moment they arrived at our hotels, to the church, to in between time, to the reception, they were there, but they were not in the way whatsoever. I can't tell you how many of my family members and friends kept going on and on about how he got every sinlge shot, he didn't miss anything..and this was all before they ever even saw the photos themselves. When you see the photos yourself, you are blown away. I have been told by two brides that got married before my, they had photographer envy. The shots are beautiful and words can't describe them. The color, the angles, the lighting, everything is perfection. I didn't buy albums in my package becuase I didnt want to commit to the $ upfront, but I will go thru Joe when I actually get around to deciding which are my favorite shots because there are too many.

Personality and Professionalism: Joe made my entire wedding day go smoothly. He wasn't the DOC, but he knew everything that was going on. He made sure that we were where we needed to be when we needed to be there. He made me feel calm when I was nervous, he communicated to his assistant photog who was already at the Church when we were running late so that everyone knew what was going on. He monitored the time in between the Chruch and Reception and when we were getting close on time, he made suggestions and knew exactly where to take us to make it back to the cocktail hour with time. He handled my large and sometimes non-coopertive bridal party and made them actually want to take pics..he knew exactly how to treat them. He was there when I wanted him there and he blended into the background when he needed to. Perfection.

I would recommend him over and over again. I got lucky with this one!

Joe and his team were amazing! Responsible, hardworking and great to get along with! He arrived 1 hour early and stayed well beyond the original agreed upon time. His team blends right in and you barely notice they are at the wedding. But they are! and are extremely hardworking not wasting a minute - everyone was so impressed at how many pics they took! Best of they, they are just great pple to be with, fun, nice, flexible and easy going but they know their stuff and direct you when you need help for the best shots possible. Highly recommend Joe Lin!!
