Adam & Jenn at The Decisive Moment were excellent to work with and were extremely organized throughout the entire process. Not only did Adam capture fantastic images but their turn around time on releasing the photos far exceeded our expectations. During our wedding, Adam managed to blend into the crowd unseen in order to somehow always be in place to capture candid moments without people realizing that they were having photos taken. On top of the great work and professionally run business it was a pleasure working with both Adam & Jenn.

The Decisive Moment is amazing. They made our wedding pictures look amazing and they captured everything that my husband and I were not able to see. I do not think that I could have asked for anything better. The best part is that they had a preview party with a slideshow of pictures highlighting our wedding and it was the perfect end to our fairytale story. Thank you so much for everything!!

Adam and his team from the Decisive Moment did my photography for my wedding a few weeks ago, and they did an absolutely amazing job. Adam was so fun and easy to be around, and he really made us feel comfortable, which allowed us to get very natural photographs. Also, the pictures are so beautiful and sincere, and Adam really captured the intimate moments of our wedding in a classic way.

We are so thrilled with the photographs of our wedding and from our engagement shoot, which Adam also took. The engagement shoot was shot in the rain because we only had one afternoon available to take the pictures. Adam and Melissa made it so fun and easy, and the pictures that they took were incredible.

At the wedding itself, we never felt the photographers' presence, but they captured absolutely everything. Also, we had many requests for images that we needed, and they took all of these and more. We could not be happier with how our photographs turned out, and we can't stop reliving our big day by watching the slide show that Adam and Jenn sent us.

It was such a pleasure having them photograph our wedding, and we highly recommend the Decisive Moment!

Working with The Decisive Moment was amazing. They are so flexible and easy to work with and offer the highest quality of photos. I used them for engagement, bridal portraits, and wedding day photos and I have been so pleased with all of them. Their photographers really capture the emotion of your wedding and make you feel like you are reliving it every time you look at them. I highly recommend using Adam Linke! He and his wife, Jenn, are so great to work with and really make you feel like their full attention is being given to you and your day. They are great at handling any family drama or anything that may come their way. I can't recommend them more to any bride!

Choosing to use The Decisive Moment was one of the easiest decisions out of my wedding planning. Jenn and Adam were amazing to work with! They are so nice and make you feel so comfortable when working with them. Just by looking at their photographs you can tell that they truly love what they are doing. I used them for my engagement, bridal, and wedding pictures, which all turned out beyond beautiful. I am so happy that I have these pictures to remind me of such an important day in my life, and I look forward to working with Decisive Moment again in the future!

I could not be happier with my choice in photographers for our wedding. Adam & Jessica were so incredible to work with: fun, friendly, flexible. The outcome of the photographs from our wedding day are amazing! They really were able to capture the energy and emotions of everyone involved. I would recommend DM to anyone.

Decisive Moment Photography and their photojournalist Jes McGowan did an incredible job helping us plan our photography needs and in the actual documentation of the ceremony and celebrations. Jes was a "ninja" photojournalist - she did not attack anyone or anything like that rather she was stealth, discreet, even magical in that though she was rarely noticed, she captured everything! The pictures are beautiful and Decisive Moment has been easy and fun to work with - the pictures were basically done before our honeymoon was over! The slideshow is a really fun memory saver and way to reminiscence and share the wedding with people who were unable to attend! I have already recommended DM to friends and will enthusiastically continue to recommend DM and Jes as I am certain that they are the best company in town, and I am a New York City snob :) so I guarantee you will not be disappointed if you have them document your wedding!

I am a photographer, so when I set out to hire a photographer for my own wedding, it was really important to me that I find someone who not only shoots well, edits well, but who will treat their clients well. We looked at several photographers but ultimately went with TDM because their photo-journalistic style went with what we wanted from our day. We wanted a story of our day, not a series of posed photos that didn't tell anyone anything about how we felt about each other or how the day went. Not only are our photos stunning, but I feel like I look like a million dollars in every one of them without the photographers being up in our face. When I look over our wedding photos, I'll have these amazing memories of who was there and how they looked and how we felt. Our photos speak to me, they tell the story of us, and I love them.
