Joshua Zuckerman Photography
We must have looked at hundreds of photographers for my daughter's wedding. She was looking for something very special and we definitely found that in Josh Zuckerman. His work is the most awesome work I have seen and he is the nicest,most easy going person to deal with. He answered all of our questions (and we had lots of them) and was extremely pleasant no matter what. I would highly recommend him, not only for his phenomenal work, but also for his phenomenal personality as well!!!!
Beyond how amazing our wedding photos are (all of our guests concur), we truly enjoyed spending our special day with Josh. It's a stressful time and his energy was light, flexible and supportive. When thinking about it, I must have spent the most time on our wedding day with Josh as he was with me from start to finish and so choosing someone that is pleasant (and funny) is very important. Both Tim and I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for an incredibly talented and fun photographer!
Josh was the one vendor I had for my wedding that I have zero regrets about! His presence was calm and fun, and only added to the happiness of our special day. His creativity and keen sense of candid shots are the reason we initially hired him, and he came through 10 fold! Our coffee table book is to die for, and everyone we show says they have never seen a wedding captured in such a beautiful way where you can see what the family was feeling in every single picture. He got all the classic shots, but it was the unconventional shots that we are so very thankful for. We didn't even hire a videographer for the event because we knew Josh would give us more than any video could ever capture and we don't regret that decision. #1 recommendation for any bride and groom!
We loved working with Josh. We really liked the photos on his website and when we met with Josh we liked him immediately - he was funny and thoughtful and understood what we were looking for with respect to the photos of our wedding. He was also full of helpful advice for the planning of the timeline of the day. He scouted out our venue and the surrounding areas and found some awesome spots for photos on the day of the wedding. The pictures were amazing and we couldn't be happier with them. Josh is very talented and very creative!! He did a great job and we highly recommend him.
We loved Josh's style. His photos truly captures the story of the entire wedding.
Josh was absolutely wonderful. He is bright, creative, responsible - a true professional and artist. He worked the entire time and even stayed about 30 minutes late (without charging me) as he was very interested in making sure several shots were completed. He had wonderful ideas - things I would never have though of. He took the most wonderful pictures of my dress and jewelry, but most incredible was his ability to capture people in action - our guests throughout the ceremony and reception, and the moment that my husband first saw me in my dress. Several people commented on how hard he worked, and how talented he was - and that was before they even saw my photo book! Josh was more incredible than I could have even imagined, and I knew he was excellent when I hired him. I didn't know him before I hired him. No one referred me to him. I saw his work when I was visiting a hotel to consider it for my wedding (I didn't choose that hotel) but a photo book was there of his - and it was absolutely wonderful. Josh was the first person I hired - I didn't even have a wedding date. I "reserved" him for several weekends before I picked a date. He was wonderful.
Josh was our dream photographer in every way. We worked with him for an engagement shoot and then of course he shot our wedding as well. Before talking about the pictures (which were fabulous!), I would mention that Josh was great to work with - he was very professional and put everyone at ease immediately. He was responsive in the time up until our wedding. His work as a photographer completely blew us away. He has an eye for breathtaking shots and even made our formals look interesting and artistic. When we got our pictures back, we couldn't believe how many creative and beautiful shots he got. We don't have enough picture frames in our house to display all the pictures we love! I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed working with Josh and how thrilled we are with the end result. We would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who wants to love their wedding photos!
Josh is the absolute best - not only does he take incredible photos, but he's responsive, professional and extremely easy to work with. He is very experienced too, which was great for us since he knew how to capture all the right moments without being intrusive. When I look at the photos now I can't believe he managed to be in so many places at once. His photos do more than record the event; they're artsy, emotional and a bit dreamy - just like our wedding was for us. We couldn't be happier.
JZ was great. We were looking for someone with who could get all the shots you'd expect but with a unique artistic eye. He and his assistants have an uncanny ability to get everyone in that moment where they're completely natural. We'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality, low key, easy to work with photographer.
Josh Zuckerman was wonderful! Both on an artistic and personal level, we enjoyed working with Josh. We feel lucky to have him as a part of our wedding and we look forward to using him for future special occasions.
Josh Zuckerman was/is a gentleman. First of all, he is an excellent photographer. His artistic style is memorable, distinctive and fulfilled all expectations. He is very easy to work with, artistically and financially. Only the best.
I cannot speak highly enough of Joshua Zuckerman Photography. I got married in August and when I look at my album today I can feel the emotions Josh captured in the photos. His attention to detail and artistic vision make him the best photographer for your special day. With his photos he can tell the story of your wedding day, from start to finish, and that is something you will treasure forever. Choosing Josh was one of the best decisions we made.
Josh really captures those special moments for you to look back on!
Joshua Zuckerman was my perfect choice for my wedding photographer. Both my husband and I are THRILLED by our GORGEOUS wedding pictures (as are our family and friends). He was enthusiastic and totally into the green theme that I had created for my wedding. Working with him was a pleasure and he created outstanding pictures of our day.
Being a creative visual person, I knew I wanted someone who was like minded. I scoured the internet and looked at many portfolios and came upon a few very good choices.. and then I looked at Joshua's book... I chose Joshua because his photographs called out to me. Joshua's photographs reveal wonderful personalities filled with honest emotions. I wanted to meet the people in his photographs. His people come alive and appeared to almost pop off the page with their joy or laughter or tears or depth of feeling that Josh can so easily capture. His pictures are timeless. I thought I was looking at a Life Magazine instead of wedding photographs.
At this point I should also say that Josh photographed my sister's wedding the year before. When I saw her photos I thought they were the most GORGEOUS pictures I had ever seen... Her album was like royalty. I thought... who are these people, and then realized that they were my family!! When I was planning my wedding, at first I thought maybe I didn't want to use the same person as my sister... but portfolio after portfolio didn't hold a candle to the images that were on Josh's website and also the ones that he took at my sister's wedding.
So, I called Josh. But, I also wanted to make sure that I connected with him. After all having a photographer at your wedding is a bit like inviting a best friend or family member that you have never met! Plus, since they are going to be with you all day, you have to like having them around and feel comfortable with them. Josh's easy conversational style put me right at ease. He was comfortable with his talent and spoke to me like we were friends. He listened to my ideas and had great additional suggestions as to how to make the day go as I envisioned. I liked that he appreciated my concerns. He addressed them and helped me find creative choices for all them. I also got a sense that he would work great with my husband who is shy and not so crazy about having his picture taken. Bingo, I was right on.
At the wedding Josh arrived on time and professionally dressed. He has a great sense of humor and an ability to go with it all. He had great creative suggestions though out the day and thinks on his feet like a creative artist. Best of all, he felt like a best friend at the wedding, someone you feel easy around, someone who takes care of things, someone who added something special to the day. Everyone said what a pleasure it was having Josh take their photos. Josh has this ability to make you feel like you and your people are the most wonderful people and that your wedding is the most wonderful event - which in my case I think it was!. Working with someone so gifted and so into what you are doing and so delightful was a great experience that produced amazingly beautiful pictures.
One of my goals was to have a modern documentary style that was both creative, and soulful and something that would tell the story of my beautiful wedding day with honest loving emotions, and vivid personalities. I wanted the laughter, the tears, the sighs, the magic moments, the beauty of the day to be revealed easily, and I can tell you Josh provided that for me and more. Recommend Joshua Zuckerman for your wedding pictures - You bet I do! Rochelle Blank Zimmer.
LOOK NO FURTHER THAN JOSH!
really. he was OUTSTANDING in EVERY way (you might want to grab a sandwich as there are MANY aspects of his fantasticness and i promise to not holdback my opinions.)
Being a photographer myself, i had looked at well over 200 photographers and his work always stood out ahead of the pack as dynamic, alive, fresh and new. I'd seen SO much 'wedding shlock' (slightly overexposed bouquets, over vignetted cliches, and just the same.... exact..... tone...... for ALL the weddings even though they were clearly very very different... i called them the 'acme wedding photographers') less expensive perhaps but nowhere near as creative, interesting, stunning, emotional and capturing as josh's work.
josh has an incredible ease and talent (genius? i sometimes fear that term is overused but in this case, it's truly well well deserved) and has an incredible eye and knack to capture the moment and then take it to an even better place beautifully, naturally, creatively, with a sense of humour and fun to it. none of his images looked fake or overdone... just fantastic, compelling and with a deep true soul to them.
We had narrowed down my search (as i was in charge of finding the photographer) and finally, after several months of research (really, crazy but true) ended up meeting with three.
we met Josh last.
he immediately made us feel at ease. he's very laidback, knows his stuff inside and out and was just so open and nice and wonderful and solid (and funny) i just knew he was 'the one'. he let his work (which is so awesome!) speak for itself and truly took the time to let us get to know him openly and naturally.
On "The Day" there were absolutely no shortcomings whatsoever. He was phenomenal. In fact, i could not imagine our wedding without him. Our wedding (and yes I'm completely bias) was incredible and i really really really think that so much of that had to do with josh. he always made us feel comfortable. he was on time. beyond prepared. had such a great easy vibe/energy (which may sound super west coast of me to say but it is SO IMPORTANT to feel comfortable and it is SO EASY for that day to be a giant hot mess that it is CRUCIAL to feel at ease and know that you're in good hands THROUGHOUT it!) Josh took in the ever changing moods of the day with grace and ease and always kept it open and fun. Never forced or invasive.
We never felt judged, embarrassed, self conscious at any moment. And my fiance (who is very very shy) also always felt comfortable and entirely open around him and, as did i, trusted him implicitly. If josh had told us to lie down in the middle of the road we probably would as we knew it would have been a crazily amazing shot and we would have had a great time doing it.
it was so exciting and wonderful to have him there.
in fact, it seemed that he was magically always there yet completely unobtrusive at the same time (so many of our wedding guests commented on how unobtrusive he was). He made everything better.
Highly qualified and experienced. Appeared to spend as much time preparing for our wedding before the event as he did at the event. While no photographer can be completely unobtrusive, he did an excellent job of blending into the event. We were extremely comfortable and confident that he was doing a great job all night.
My experience with Joshua Zuckerman was amazing. He was recommended by a friend whose wedding he photographed. Our wedding pictures are gorgeous – he made everything look like it was out of a fairytale. Besides being able to create beautiful pictures that told the story of our wedding day, he did an incredible job of capturing all the little moments too. For example, he took a photo of me and my father on the dance floor that makes me cry each time I see it. (That photo is on his website).
I can’t recommend Josh enough. He’s very experienced and able to handle all situations in a laid back way. Before the wedding we met to go over logistics, timing and shot list, and he was very insightful in helping lay out a schedule. On the day of the wedding, Josh went above and beyond, was courteous and kept behind the scenes taking one amazing picture after the other. Thank you Josh!
