I've used them to photograph a few of our outdoor events. The photos they took were great. Just as clear as could be and the colors popping out at you. One of the things that helps is just to talk with them before hand and let them know exactly what you want or are looking for. They will capture that and also get creative to get those shots you normally wouldn't. I know at times they may have had some issues with the print lab they were using but I believe they have taken care of that matter. These guys work hard and stay very busy. Hopefully they can get some more help in that can handle the busy work schedule. Look forward to working with these guys again.

Do not hire this company! They are extremely unprofessional and unreliable. We hired them to photograph our wedding and not only did they repeated fail to meet us at pre-wedding planning events but they basically extorted us to pay more money for the event that they contracted to photograph.

Specifically, on the day of wedding, they emailed my wife, the bride and told her that they wouldn't show up unless she paid them an extra $800 because they claimed that our payment was late even though we had agreed to make the rest of the payment at a later date. We paid them because, being the day of the wedding there was no way for us to hire another photographer.

To add insult to injury, Joe Schiffman has treated me with great disrespect throughout the whole process. Here is an excerpt from an email that he sent me, "Your images are being provided to you in RAW format (those are the ones we open in our software that costs us 1400 a year to maintain and upgrade each time a new version comes out). You've been provided all the services, images, and disks with all your images. What you do with them is up to you. Any images you see on those disks with your free preview software are called jpeg files. They are the printable files that we have opened, converted, and/or edited already and will not spend any more time on this already significant waste of time. My staff has been informed NOT to respond to you calls, EMAILS ONLY if there is any reason at this point for you to contact us other than to get the final word in this conversation over to us which I'm sure is what you will need to do as your unable to speak to any of our staff throughout your wedding, reception, and following your wedding. We have COMPLETED ALL aspects of our agreements with you and will no longer spend time, money, labor, expenses, or anything else no matter the terminology on this matter."

Save yourself a massive headache and do NOT do business with these people.

Looks like Joe Schiffman got some of his friends to write fake positive reviews....

Again, do not use these folks, they are scam artists. They will nickle and dime you for everything and they are extremely unprofessional amateurs. See my review herein.

I called Joe a mere 7 days before my wedding...and he made the time available to meet and discuss what I wanted that same day! No other photographer in the area was willing to work with me on my time or budget constraints. He was very helpful with ideas and put my mind at ease. He garnered positive comments from my family and friends as well. He is a down to Earth guy that wants everyone to have a great experience with the final result. They did a great job.

If you're looking for a photographer look no further!!! The Schiffman Photography Company did an excellent job of creating a video of breathtaking photos at a family funeral. Amazing Vision, amazing pictures!! He captured so many details of the family and friends that will forever be remembered. He managed to capture many moments touching all of our hearts.
When I look at the video, I remember how I felt at the time and most importantly this special video presentation kept alive the memory of our loved one… can we really ask for anything more? He is the World's Best Photographer!!! We'll definitely use him for other significant life events. I highly recommend him for capturing your important day!

We used the Schiffman Photography Company for our wedding and reception and I highly recommend them! They arrived earlier than expected and we have received numerous compliments from our attendees regarding their professionalism. They managed to get MANY wonderful photos of our wedding and reception yet they seemed to blend in with everything we had going on so the picture taking was not distracting. They are clearly very passionate about photography and this is evident through the quality of their images and their desire to make the customer happy. I would definitely recommend using the Schiffman Photography Company for your wedding!

I hate being photographed !!! and when I met with Schiffman Photography, I explained this one simple concern..I hate pictures of me, and I was only agreeing to be photographed because it was my wedding day. I can honestly say, I LOVE JOE SCHIFFMAN!! He managed to make my wedding pictures look GREAT ! I do not think I am photogenic at all, but with Joe's eye and the way he can capture the exact moment that you look fabulous...WOW WOW WOW is all I can say...I have a 11x20 print of the KISS on my living room wall...and it is a CLOSE UP - If you are looking for a GREAT photographer that will blend in and get shots that you never knew were being taken...then this is your dream photographer ! His work jumps off the page and his passion is evident.
