Casey Fatchett Photography
from the first time we met casey, we knew he was a dependable, talented and thoughtful photographer. the decision to book him was easy and we felt so lucky he was available on our date. as we finalized our wedding plans, he was so responsive and helpful. then, the big day arrived and he proved to be so much more - calming during stressful moments, fun as if one of the family, and so slick moving from one family member to a friend to a special guest, all while capturing each and every moment of our special day. we are OBSESSED with the photos he has us sent so far and we are SO excited to work with him to create albums and hopefully capture more big moments in our lives for years to come. we would recommend Casey to absolutely everyone, over and over again. if you want amazing photos, contact Casey. seriously, dont wait. do it.
Casey was quite simply amazing! He accommodated all of our ideas and requirements and was calm and collected both during planning (when we live in England) and on the day itself, putting myself and my husband at ease. The photography was quite simply incredible - all of our guests are still talking about it and his work was even featured on Brides UK website. Awesome. Would absolutely 100% recommend Casey.
I felt the photographer and his team were professional and most of all I felt that they weren't even there. They were not intrusive and our wedding was captured in its natural beauty.
Our wedding was an unconventional one - the kind that might throw off a photographer who has less of a go-with-the-flow spirit than Casey. At our engagement photo shoot, Casey helped us figure out how to storm the Museum of Modern Art to capture some pics that got in the spirit of our Pop Art wedding. On our wedding, Casey was an invaluable calming force in the crazed atmosphere of the day. He stepped up when we needed advice, became a photo-ninja when he needed to blend into the background and got some truly amazing shots of our wedding day - some that we weren't even aware he'd captured. We are totally in love with our pictures and Casey helped to make our day all the more perfect.
Casey photographed our engagement session and our wedding. His unlimited package is amazing, and you get a good amount for what you pay! Casey helped us find a unique location to fit our vision for our engagement photos. He was laid back and easy to work with! Our photos came out stunning, and we continue to get compliments on them a year later!
Our wedding was also photographed by Casey and his assistant Angel. It was an extremely long day for them in addition to travel time, etc. However they arrived in time to take "getting ready" pictures which came out beautiful and capture some very special moments.
During the reception they blended in with the crowd, were never pushy, and managed to capture beautiful, hilarious candids as well as many portraits. They also captured many of the very important details that made our wedding unique. Our pictures are absolutely gorgeous and always put a smile on my face when I look at them. Definitely recommend Casey Fatchett Photography for engagements/weddings! You will love working with Casey and adore the memories he'll capture for you!
Casey takes incredibly amazing wedding photos, I would definitely recommend him. It was a good mix of formal staged portraits, quiet people moments and artistic shots. Very appropriate for our eclectic Asian-American wedding in Central Park.
Before my wedding I thought there was only 2 variables in hiring a photographer; the quality of photos and the cost. And so, looking at Casey's past work and getting his quote we made the decision to have him do our engagement and wedding photos. His planning and organization was top-notch; during the pre-ceremony he was critical in making sure everyone was in position and post ceremony he captured a heroic amount of large family shots in record time to get us back to the reception. As for quality, not only did he not disappoint, but we rarely visit a friend or family member's house without seeing his work on display.
That said, I could not have anticipated the greater impact he had on our wedding. He was there capturing the best moments of our day, earning laughs with a well placed joke for posed shots, helping us get from one table to the next even in the middle of a circle capturing our POV as we danced. He was always there when we needed him and somehow disappeared when we wanted a moment.
I didn't know to look for that level of care and intuition in my photographer search, and even if I did I could not have found it looking at websites. Having experienced it now however, I wouldn't trust memories as precious as this with anyone else.
Mr. Fatchett consistently exceeded our expectations at all stages of our wedding, both in planning and execution.
He comes highly recommended for his courtesy, professionalism and warmth.
We couldn't have been happier with our choice and will recommend him to anyone.
Casey Fatchett is a big deal. This is a really easy decision if you can get Casey- do it! Casey is brilliant. First of all, he LOVES weddings. He is a true romantic and as a new groom himself he really gets both how exciting weddings are and how much pressure they are. Secondly, Casey is a professional- he has this down to a science. He has seen it all and that is really comforting when you are dealing with a million details. Lastly and perhaps most importantly- he sees everything you do not see on your wedding day. He captures every DIY detail you created in love. He sees your mom and her sister sharing a moment and despite the fact that he has never met them captures the whole essence of thier relationship. He is an artist- and you will barely even know he is there. There is a picture he took of me and my father- that I will treasure the rest of my life. Out of all the pictures of us together in my whole life- CASEY took the best. I cry every time I look at it. I am forever in his debt....
I cannot say enough good things about Casey. From the very first moment that we started discussing my wedding, he was always responsive and willing to provide guidance and information. He is organized and talented and when he encounters a client that tends to let details slip by the wayside (that'd be me, for the record), he kept the lines of communication open and kept following up to make sure that we both got what we needed. Casey is one of the most easy-going people I've ever met, too, which is fantastic because it totally puts his subjects at ease, too. He's also super funny and a lot of fun to be around, and you get a sense that he really just loves what he's doing. We used Casey's services for engagement pictures and our wedding pictures, and we were utterly pleased with both of them. If you book him, be sure to include the photo booth option, which was so much fun for our guests that they're still raving about it almost two months later! He's really the best!
We found a link to Casey’s services through our wedding officiates and he turned out to be an inspired choice.
We organised everything via email (we are from the UK) and right from the start Casey was genuinely interested in what we were looking for and couldn’t have been more helpful.
We first met Casey on the morning of our wedding and he got straight to work and captured everything perfectly. I’m not normally too comfortable in front of the camera but Casey just lets you do your thing and sometimes I forgot he was there.
We didn’t have any of the ‘stand here and do this’ attitude that you can get from some photographers and as such we have ended up with some brilliantly natural shots that totally captured everything perfectly.
We had Casey booked for 2 hours but not once did I feel he was clock watching or hurrying us along, it was a pleasure to work with him.
I would absolutely recommend him, you wont be disappointed with the results.
Casey was incredible to work with. He is fun and he makes everyone feel comfortable which creates natural and beautiful photos. He is talented and has a very creative eye. I HIGHLY recommend working with him and I know I will again in the future. Everyone agrees that his photos are amazing, he captured every moment! It's worth every penny!
We highly recommend Casey as a wedding photographer. From start to finish, he has always been reliable and easy-going. I think the best feature he offers is his "no limits" photography-- he is with you from start to finish. What dedication! That allowed him to capture a lot of moments other photographers wouldn't... and it also didn't make us feel rushed to get in all the pictures we wanted. He also has an insanely quick turn-around time; you won't be left waiting forever for your pics.
Overall we were very happy with Casey. We love our pictures and received a lot of compliments on them. Casey was friendly and easy going at our wedding which was nice. Casey does not give much direction in regards to how you should stand or ideas for poses. Casey also did our engagement photos (which came out great) however he did not have a lot of flexibility in regards to the time of the shoot. We ended up doing them in the morning which didn't really work for us. But still, overall, I would choose Casey again. Very happy with the pictures from our special day!
Where do I begin? Casey is the most professional and personable photographer you could ever have the privilege of working with. For our wedding, he captured our moments beautifully and made them come alive, with vibrant candids and natural poses. He was never in the way. On the contrary, we discovered many photographs that were taken when we did not even realize. He is THAT good at his job that for the most part, you don’t even notice him or his assistant yet they manage to capture the most gorgeous of images. Casey is also a friendly, professional individual meaning he has the skill, knowledge and expertise to get all of the important necessary shots and the eye for detail to also take those sentimental, precious moment shots that every bride wants.
He has an impeccable eye also for natural shots—so he creates a feeling in his albums as though you were really there even if you weren’t. Some people who could not be there stated that they felt that the photos connected them to the special day, as though they were actually right in the room just by seeing snapshots. Others were gushing at the naturalness of the shots—a couple’s toast, an embrace, people dancing, all moments candidly and majestically captured by Casey himself who brought to life all of the precious, the sentimental and the sweet. He was never cheesy, or overly sappy, as I know some artists can be, nor was he opinionated. He asked our ideas about things and took our feedback, our suggestions, answering our questions with ease. He also reassured us during our engagement session, where we got a chance to really get to know him and for him to get to know us as a couple in order to ensure the wedding day would go flawlessly, which it did. Also, to get us more comfortable in front of the camera since you are virtually in the spotlight every second the day of the wedding!
We are definitely ordering an album or two from him based on the level of expertise and the gorgeous, perfect shots that came out from the wedding. Plus, he showed us some albums on our first meeting with him, which were absolutely breathtaking and beautiful and which made us choose him, along with his funny, friendly personality. He does amazing black and white shots, which I personally love, and his color shots also ring true to life. I happen to have a proclivity to black and white and I love that Casey captures those as well, since some photographers are not able to do both and Casey is the opposite—he has the talent for doing black and white, color and also for catching close-ups (rings, jewelry, centerpieces) but also the larger, full-scale family shots and of course—the bride and groom! Our photos are so beautiful that some people told us that they had trouble choosing which ones to order. And although I may be biased (it was my wedding, after all) objectively speaking, all of the photos I saw he took of other brides were also breathtaking. So if you are a reluctant bride unsure of whom to choose to photograph possibly the most important day of your life, rest assured, you are going with the best. Because you deserve the best and the best is Casey. Thank you, Casey. The gratitude is ours. The photographs are ours to keep and treasure forever.
Casey was wonderful! Very laid-back, friendly and took great shots. He was never in the way and we very much enjoyed having him there! He was also very quick sending us edited photos after the wedding and has already sent info for creating an album as well. Highly recommend!
Casey was wonderful from the minute we met him for our first appointment, to after the reception! He is always very prompt with his response and always addresses all questions and concerns. Our pictures came out great, and they were ready pretty quickly after our wedding! He also helped out with other services such as our Photobooth, which was a big hit at our reception. I recommend Casey to everyone!
We had the pleasure of having Casey shoot our wedding and we truly could not have been happier. He captures your very essence in each photo. He gives you that peace of mind your looking for when looking for a photographer. Extremely reliable, easy to work with, totally funny and very professional. Honestly him and his team are inspiring and jaw dropping of how much they capture in so little time.
When looking for a photographer we wanted someone who would be able to capture the spontaneity of the day. (“Anyone can take a good picture of you posing on your best day” was my husband's refrain.) We couldn’t have asked for anything more from Casey and his assistant, Jeremy. Casey made sure that we were all on the same page in terms of our expectations for the day well before the wedding day (how long we would spend on portraits, any special photos we wanted, etc), and then he exceeded them. Both he and Jeremy seemed to be everywhere, all the time, but were simultaneously unobtrusive in their quest to record our day. Their demeanor is the perfect balance of professionalism with personal regard—as soon as we contacted Casey about our wedding, we felt that he was just as excited as we were about the event! The result you can see in the pictures: no one has the dreaded “prom face”.
We absolutely loved working with Casey. My husband jokingly said he wanted to reenact King Kong during our engagement session and Casey made it happen with some Photoshop magic! We were impressed with Casey's package which included engagement photos, 2 photographers on the wedding day and a whole day of photos for a great price. Casey was easy to work with and looking at our wedding photos I am not even sure how he got some of the shots! He's definitely a ninja during the ceremony because I didn't see him at all when he was somehow behind the altar. I'm not sure how we are going to choose which photos to order from the 3000 he and his assistant Angel took. They are all gorgeous!
After interviewing several photographers who were either creepy, over-priced, or whose shots were overly post-produced, we were so happy to meet the real deal - Casey.
Casey is calm, easygoing, offers a wide range of services and styles. We also liked his partner of choice on the big day, as well as his ability to work so well with our videographer. He seemed to be everywhere at once and my friends who checked out his site just loved everything they saw!
After seeing friends' wedding pictures by photographers who cost twice and delivered half, I say just go with Casey! :-)
Professional, through and through.
Answers all your question and is very responsive!
Casey was a pleasure to work with - very professional and down to earth. His photography is an art - he captured so many beautiful moments at our wedding that they took our breath away. You won't be disappointed!
Casey is hands down the best wedding photographer in the New York Area. He is professional, helpful, takes fantastic impromptu shots as well as posed, and he is an all around great person. I work in media and have met my share of photographers. Dan and I aren't very comfortable taking formal photographs together, and Casey made the shoot easy and fun.
Working with Casey was so easy! He was immediately responsive, very professional, had a ton of really great ideas and was laid back and relaxed. We could tell he has a lot of experience with engagement and wedding photography and this really put us at ease. His wedding without limits concept made us feel like he was totally devoted to really capturing our day rather than working on a clock and our pictures show this for sure!! I am extremely pleased with our photos and would recommend Casey to anyone without hesitation.
Casey is absolutely amazing! I can't even begin to describe how beautiful, discrete, and lovely he was to work with. We loved our engagement shoot photos and are still drooling at all of our wedding photos. Thank you is not nearly enough!
Casey was great to work with! We were not looking for posed pictures, just our guests having fun and he delivered! Our photos are perfect. Casey is a sweet person, very professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone! He will definitely be my go to photographer from now on :)
We knew when we met with Casey and saw his photos that he was the one we had to have! Casey took the most beautiful and artistic photos I have ever seen, and everyone who sees the photos comments on how unique and beautiful they are; his photos truly captured the moment. He was really great to work with, easy to get in touch with, and flexible. I very, very highly recommend him!
Casey is super laid back and creative! Takes great unique photos!

Do Not Underestimate the Value of a Good Personality When Booking Your Photographer
Most couples overlook the personality of the photographer they are going to hire for their wedding. Keep in mind that unlike most of your other wedding vendors, you will be working closely with your photographer well before and well after your wedding day. From engagement photos to creating your album, you will be in contact with your photographer numerous times other than the day of the event.
And on the day of the event, your photographer will most likely be the person you spend the most time with other than your spouse! Think about the type of person you want to be spending that time with. Do you want someone who is going to make you feel at ease when you are nervous? Someone who will happily offer their advice when a troublesome situation arises? That’s what I thought...
