after booking Val to be our photographer and him stating that he and or his daughter will be taking our pictures he tells us one month away from the wedding that he will not be shooting our photos and that he triple booked himself. He was going to give us a free lance photographer. When i asked to speak to this new person A) the guy did not know ANYTHING ABOUT SHOOTING OUR WEDDING B) he did not have a website or anywhere to see his work C) we were told he didnt meet clients because he really didnt like people.

Val and his daughter were terrific. Form our first meeting he made us feel very welcome and comfortable that we were in good hands. Val was a delight to work with. He is very experienced and knows how to set up a shot. He provides an engagement shoot with his wedding package and it was very helpful in understanding how he works and it made us comfortable with posing. On the day of our wedding His daughter was there and it was obvious from our first meeting that she is just as experienced and professional. Our contract was for one photographer for the entire evening, but Val decided to show up as well. So we ended up with two photographers for most of the night. Wow!!! We have not seen the photos yet, but with two photographers on the scene, I am sure we will have thousands to choose from. It should also be noted that Val gives you every photo. Not just the ones that we select for albums. You get every single one.

Val and his team were great to work with especially when it came to our crazy bridal party. Val was amazing and made the picture process go very smooth. Julia and Dan were both very patient which was greatly appreciated. Julia even helped calm my niece/flower girl right before going down the aisle. Val was the photographer for many of our friends and family so I knew I wasn't stirring wring when I too pick Val as my photographer our wedding. Couldn't believe how quickly the pictures were ready when it came time to asking for the proofs. It was a lot of fun working with them. We will be sticking with Val Solo for all of our special events in future.

My cousin referred us to Val Solo Photography & Videography. Her wedding photos and video were wonderful. Val Solo really is a genuine person and works with you and your budget. We really liked the way our engagement photos came out that we couldn't wait to see the photos from our wedding. When we got back from our honeymoon we made an appointment and had all our photos on cd. We are still going through all the photos and narrowing them down for our album is really tough being that they are all so good. We haven't seen our wedding video yet, but I am sure that Val's wife did a wondeful job capturing every moment. In the beginning we weren't sure whether or not to have video, but Val worked with us and it will be good memories for generations to come. He answered all our questions and concerns. I highly recommend Val Solo Photography & Videography and look forward to using them again in the future.

Val was great! After meeting with a few different local photographers I decided to go with him because he offered the best price for great work; and I was not disappointed. I had my wedding at Perona Farms and everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. I will say that I wish he offered some one the newer type of wedding albums - like the magazine type. 8x10 - 30 picture album is a little old school. He was a little bossy with the wedding party in how to stand and look, even to my little flower girl of 4 years old. But overall I was pleased with the outcome of his work.

I know this is long, so I will tell you if I endorse them or not: Val Solo & his company has my HIGHEST recommendations. Read on if you need further convincing…
I went to Val Solo, unsure of what I wanted. To save money, my husband and I were about to hire some “new” photographers (who were starting out in the business of photography), but we stopped into Val’s just to compare prices. Once I stopped in there, without an appointment or anything, I was hooked. His kindness and professionalism took my and my husband’s breath away. He told us a little about what he could offer, and told us to take our time reviewing his offers, so we could select what we wanted. He did not make us choose from a preset package, but he created a price based on the things we wanted. We needed photography and videography, and he showed us samples of his brilliant work. I knew right away he was the one who had everything we needed. He was mindful of our budget, and gave us a terrific package that we couldn’t refuse. It was even cheaper than the estimated price those new photographers were giving us, and we were now getting much more for our dollar!
On the day we went to get our FREE engagement pictures taken, he practiced some poses he was going to use for our wedding day. This way we were more natural and we felt comfortable with his way of working. We also got together to discuss which engagement picture he was going to use for our FREE signed picture frame (one with a white boarder, so our family and friends could sign it the day of our wedding). Needless to say, by the time our wedding came around, we were so comfortable with him (AND his lovely wife, Nina, who was fortunately our videographer). Getting both photography and videography at the same place was so important in the end, because we were comfortable with the family owned business and they made both into one affordable price.
At the wedding, both Nina and Val were on the same page (since they are a happily married couple) and neither got in the other’s way. They made both sides of the family feel great about the way they looked and being in front of the camera. The shots they took were so creative, and everyone still says how artistic my album came out. Knowing how nervous we were going to be the day of the wedding, both Val and his wife were extremely pleasant and comforting. They made us laugh and gave pointers on how things should run. Everything went perfect. They followed my limo to the park, took pictures (which were STUNNING), and went ahead to our venue. They set up before me and my guests arrived. Both of them took pictures of me and my entire wedding party coming out of the limo…and that was just the beginning.
Because of Val, I now have two beautiful keepsakes: my wedding album and my wedding video. I can relive those cherished moments with my husband, and hopefully with our grandchildren one day. Both my husband’s parents, and mine, have a beautiful family picture hanging in their houses, because Val suggested it as a token of our gratitude.
I can truly go on and on about Val, but hopefully you get the idea…go with him if you want a perfect photographer, and I also highly suggest his wife for your videographer! Great Luck! =)

Not only did our photographs turn out beautiful, our albums were perfect, and our package was custom fit to our needs (divorced parents = and odd number of parent albums!)

When we received the wedding video, we were equally pleased with its quality. Val and his family were a pleasure to work with, and it was great working directly with the photographer instead of being given the run around from a big company!

We booked Val Solo after I went to over 15 photographers, who would not let me own my prints. His packages are very very reasonable. Our engagement pictures were taken right away because we wanted to use them at our engagmenent party. We went to Weekhawken and were given a cd of over 200 pictures and we got 3 8x10. After that I knew we chose the right photographer for our wedding. We filled out a day of form 2 months before the wedding and did not follw up. The day of the wedding Val came extra early the groom's mom's house & then came early to the bride's house. He followed almost every single item I had listed on my day of form. He was by far our favorite vendor of the day!!! After the wedding, we received our cd of 2,500 wedding pictures, we were given a website of 300 pictures, I chose a 70 picture album and within a week I was sent my album preview. I did make changes that cost 10 each but that was my fault for choosing incorrect pictures! I received my album less than 3 months after our wedding! I did not like the quality of the thank yous so I chose to make my own which was fine since I owed all of my images. I would absolutley recommend this photographer if you are looking for alot of pictures at a reasonable price!!

If you are looking for stunning photographs, choose Val Solo Photography! They were absolutely wonderful throughout the entire wedding process. Some of my guests commented that they didn't even notice the photographers on the wedding day, meanwhile they took over 2,000 shots! They are extremely talented and created an absolutely gorgeous album for us!

We worked with Julia Solo as the photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding day and she did an absolutely amazing job! She was able to single-handedly capture every single moment that was important to us. She was professional from beginning to end. What was particularly noteworthy about Julia is that she was there at all the right times and yet not invasive. People continue to tell us that they didn't even know she was there and yet she captured every moment. That is truly a compliment to be able to capture every moment without invading everyone's space! As far as we are concerned her talent is unsurpassed. We continue to receive compliments on the unique magazine-style wedding album that Julia put together for us. In our opinion, it is one of the highest quality albums you can obtain. In terms of turnaround time, our wedding was September 6th and we received our proofs by September 30th. We still can't believe how quickly we received our proofs. In fact, the hardest part for us was making our selections as there were so many pictures we loved! We would highly recommend Julia to anyone we know who is getting married.

Val Solo was great!! We got wonderful pictures and just watched our video. We were so pleased with the way it came out! We can't wait to watch it again.
They were flexible with us as well. We didn't want to do the traditional parent albums, so we did folio's instead and they were just like we imagined them.
Thanks Val Solo Photography!!

Val Solo was our photographer and his wife was the videographer. We haven't seen our photo's or video yet, but I know they will turn out great. They positioned us in fun and creative poses. They worked very hard and were there for 9 hours taking all kinds of pictures. We also LOVED our engagement album. Val has a very artistic eye and can capture each moment and make it look so special. He is incredible to work with and had everyone smiling with his jokes.

Val Solo was wonderful! My husband and I couldn't be happier. I searched for months and months for a good photographer with a price tag we could afford and I selected Val Solo based on those factors. The price I paid for photography and Video was the same price I received for just Photography elsewhere. Val is about 100 miles from me and I still selected him because of his excellent service. His work is amazing. There was about 2000 pictures taken and we received all of them on a disk. Our portrait is absolutely georgous and the wedding album and video are even better, if there is such a thing. Every time I show my wedding album, people are amazed at the quality. I would highly recommend Val Solo Photography and Video for any event, especially a Wedding!!

We couldn't have been happier with our engagement photos, wedding photos, and beautiful wedding album! Each time we met with Val, he'd always make us smile and laugh. My husband and I get a little camera shy sometimes, but Val made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera--this makes the photos look so natural, fun, and really captures the true essence of your happy day!! We must've received over 2000 wedding photos on a disc. The other thing that we really loved was that they got the perfect shots, but weren't in your face the whole night. We also received tons of compliments from our guests. We've been to so many weddings where the photographers were following everyone around--but not with Val; he totally respects your privacy, but at the same time, is dedicated to providing you with the best memories of your wedding day!!

He took all candid shots and provided 2 photographers, one for the groom and one for me! The videography was not as good. It was shaky and not professional. I was embarrased to show the video to anyone. I could of done a better job.

the value seemed much better when we were signing the contract then when we saw the end product. you no longer get proofs everything is on CD that you cannot print on your own unless you take it to a professional printer. also this is a small buisness, so often the phone went unanswered and you had to call and call until someone picked up...noone would return your message..overall not a disaster but they made need some more social adaptation to NJ.

We will be sticking with Val Solo for all of our special events!
