Natural Expressions exceeded my expectations for my wedding photography. Frank and his office staff have been wonderful and responsive from the beginning and a pleasure to work with. Pedro took the most beautiful photos for our engagement and wedding and we could not be happier.

I selected Natural Expressions because I didn't want a lot of posed portraits and I wanted them to capture moments and they did exactly that. I could not be happier. I hope to have an occasion in the future to hire them again.

I wasn't really sure how to go about choosing a photographer for my wedding, but after meeting Frank I instantly knew I wanted someone I could work easily with and be around all day (literally all day). The staff at natural expressions made the planning aspect go very smoothly. My husband had one request, he wanted to be at cocktail hour. The day of the wedding we were able to take plenty of photos with each other, the bridal party and our families and still get to the start of cocktail hour. Frank and Telmo made the whole photo taking process a ton of fun, everyone loved them! They were also great at knowing the spots that would look good in photos, a great balance of posing and candid pictures as well. We just received on pictures and I absolutely love them! I highly recommend Natural Expressions!

Where do we begin?!?! Frank and his team at Natural Expressions are simply the best! We first met Frank during our engagement shoot in NYC and he was a pleasure to work with. His photos speak for themselves, but his personality, in addition to his creativity, really makes shooting with him an enjoyable experience. He made us feel comfortable right from the start, and he truly has a charm and humor about him that makes everyone he works with fall in love with him. Even our family and friends at the wedding echoed this sentiment and commented on his personality and how playful and fun he is! Prior to our wedding, Frank took the time to create a schedule and timeline for the wedding photos, and he was willing to accommodate any and all photography requests. As expected, we were disappointed when the weather did not cooperate and our picture-perfect sunny day turned to an overcast day; however, Frank found a way to utilize the weather to our photographic advantage and convinced (really forced) us to go outside where he was able to capture a breathtaking, once-in-a-lifetime, magazine-worthy shot of us in a backdrop of intense fog…it looks like we are floating in the clouds!

We would be remiss if we did not single out Pedro who not only followed the groom and groomsmen around for all photos on the wedding day, capturing tons of fantastic candid moments, but he also distracted and entertained our 14-month-old niece during time-sensitive photos!

We cannot wait to put together our photo album and you really cannot do better than Frank and his Natural Expressions photography team (especially if you’re getting married at Temple Emanu-El of Closter!)!

I LOVED THESE GUYS! Frank and his team are amazing, flexible and accommodating. My husband and I got remarried in NY with family and friends since we only had a civil wedding two years prior in Switzerland. Frank was so helpful when I was in the process of looking at photographers, he made time to skype and even took into consideration the time differences. He was so friendly and relaxed from minute one that I knew I wanted him to be our photographer. His work is AMAZING! We sent him a 28 page document with photos we liked and things we wanted to replicate, and he worked with us to provide the perfect day captured on film. My husband and I wanted lots of couples photos since at our first wedding we had a family friend do our photos, but he was more concerned about the food than taking pictures. Frank worked non-stop the whole night and is such a professional. He's creative and always seizes opportunities to make unique photos. His whole team is friendly, funny and extremely helpful for every question or idea I had while planning from abroad and especially on the big day. I plan on using him for all our future events and highly recommend him.

I was referred to them by The Lighthouse. I loved the engagement shoot that Jerry did for my now-husband and I. He takes good close-ups and like to turn out photos that look like they are magazine covers. For the value of the money, they provide lots of free things, like the engagement shoot, an internet link to send to friends, blown-up pics, etc. I have to wait for a few months to get my pics developed, as I just had my wedding, so can't wait for the final product!

Cookie cutter wedding pictures. If you like to take a lot of standing around/posed pictures that even your mom could think of then you got the right people. I gave 2 stars for professionalism because I'm sure they pay a lot for their office since its located in a fancy building on Park Ave South. They do respond very quickly. But again, no creativity whatsoever and gives you a good package rate that doesnt really include much so when you actually want to get things printed, you'll be charged an arm and a leg. I totally reqret using them.

Natural Expressions NY responded with the following comments:

Natural Expressions NY has been in business for ten years, providing a distinctive product and outstanding level of customer service to a wide variety of clientele. We work closely with our clients to meet their budgets and photography style and expectations. Our clients tend to be our greatest fans and account for our reliable referral business.

Our website shows the range of styles from photojournalistic to natural portraiture which our talented photography partners feature. We are known, not only for our responsiveness to clients inquiries, but more so, for our attention to our clients thoughts and needs.

As a very hands-on owner, who fosters a strong personal connection with all our clients, it comes as a surprise to receive a list of complaints, not one of which was ever voiced to me or my dependable and diligent staff.

While we've all heard the old saying, "You can't please all of the people all the time," Natural Expressions NY dedicates itself to just the opposite: Pleasing all of the people all of the time. It is my sincere wish that this anonymous reviewer would allow us that opportunity.

All my best,
Frank

I worked with Frank for my photography and videography services and the process was great from beginning to end. Frank really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera while also trying to take you out of your comfort zone a bit to capture a great shot. We took his lead on how to set-up the timing of our wedding day which we are grateful for because we got a ton of outside pictures for a November wedding. He kept the flow of the day moving along so smoothly that we never felt like we were rushed for time. We can't wait to see the pictures and video!!

When we look at our wedding photos we can't help but feel all the joy and happiness all over again. From the minute we met Jerry we new instantly and trusted fully that he would capture all the magic of the day. Jerry kept us relaxed and laughing from the engagement shoot right up to the last minute of our reception. Our friends and family even mentioned how fun Jerry was and how fabulous and efficient the pohots were. Like my husband and I our family and guest never felt any intrusion during the day. Our pictures were amazing, formal picutres as well as the candid moments of the day were fantatstic As we showed our proofs to family, friends and coworkers, there was a consensus that made us feel like we selected the best photographer, "we have never seen wedding pictures that captured everyone at their best, and caught moments you never would expect as part of a wedding album." A picture may be worth a thousand words but our wedding pictures need but a single word PHENOMENAL. Thanks Jerry for sharing all your talents with us and giving us a lifetime of memories
