Eric from Wedding Alchemy truly blew us away! After booking, Eric checked in with us regularly throughout our two year engagement and always responded right away if any questions popped up. Eric shot our engagement session, and we loved the photos so much, we used them to make our wedding guestbook. On the actual wedding day, Eric was a calming presence and truly helped make our day feel special. He knew exactly how to guide us in photos so nothing felt posed or overdone. To say we are OBSESSED with our photos is an understatement. We couldn’t recommend Wedding Alchemy enough!!

Ivy & Quartz Photography

5.0

Bethesda, MD
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $3,750

Hi! I'm Nina and I run Ivy & Quartz photography! I shot my first wedding in 2013, but my journey with photography began long before that. When I was about 10 years old, my dad gave me a camera and I quickly became obsessed. My intrigue continued to grow over the years and I went on to earn my BA in Studio Art , Photography, from the University of Virginia. After graduating I worked as a portrait photographer and decided to pursue and earn my MFA in Imaging Arts from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Awarded Best of Zola
My husband and I (and our families) are pleased to give 5 stars to Nina for her professionalism, creativity, and wiliness to give us memories from our day that will last a lifetime. She was knowledgeable about the customs and traditions and reverence required to capture a Catholic mass; she knew how to be sure to capture the moments, without distracting from the importance of the Sacrament. I've been to many weddings where all you see is the photographer, but she was able to get the shot without disturbing the elements of the day. She had such patience and flexibility with our very large families, making sure we completed our shot-list and still had time to enjoy the smaller intimate (less posed) moments together. I was not a bride that had a particularly detailed vision of the shots I wanted, mostly we wanted her to capture the party, the joy, the enjoyment. I would (and have) recommended Nina to friends. She's easy to work with, gives good direction to those brides and grooms (like us) with less creative direction then others. She's very willing to give anything a try (she even got on the ground for us so we could take an upshot of us holding hands, one of my now-favorite pictures of the day). She was reasonable, flexible, and upfront about budget and costs. Nothing was a surprise as far as cost and she turned the photos around in a very timely manner. Absolutely recommend and I hope to be able to use her services for other events in our lives in the future. (Wedding June 10, 2023)

When I am not behind the camera or editing photos, I enjoy short Uber rides to bottomless brunch on the weekends; right now mimosas and I kinda have a thing going on! I have a special relationship with bourbon and FIRMLY believe in putting food on the grill during late afternoons should be the norm. I am blessed to be married to the happiest person on earth (I am so serious), who just happens to double as my favorite person. She keeps me grounded and never fails to remind me how great she is.

Awarded Best of Zola
If you are looking for a photographer to beautifully immortalize you and your Love on one of the most important days of your life, the only option is Cesario Mendez Photography. We were sincerely blessed by his involvement in our journey to matrimony. Cesario is an immensely talented photographer whose charm disarmed us, charisma eased our anxiety, and experience truly made us feel comfortable in the process. We enjoyed our engagement photo sessions with him because we trusted in his ability to capture our love and genuine joy which emanates from every pic he shot. Cesario is gracious and considerate as every conversation we had with him before our wedding, he checked-in on our stress levels and provided invaluable words of wisdom for the wedding. On our big day, he enriched our experience with his witty sense of humor, ability to gracefully adapt to our ever-changing wedding itinerary, and of course, provided his beautiful eye for the perfect candid shots. Both he and his amazing associate did a fantastic job keeping our bridal party focused and on schedule when taking photos throughout the day. Their professional demeanor and profound passion for photography is evident by the most stunning wedding photos we could imagine. Additionally, they both showed incredible respect and proper reverence at the altar during our Catholic wedding ceremony. Cesario Mendez Photography is the BEST value for money based on the talent, services, and products received. We implore all reading this post to make the best decision for your wedding by hiring the best photographer on the east coast.

I have been a photographer for 8 years. Throughout my time as a photographer I’ve captured clothing, models, and memories.

From the very beginning of planning my surprise proposal to my girlfriend, working with Grace was an absolute pleasure. She was not only receptive to my ideas but also shared her own equally creative suggestions. Grace's professionalism and attention to detail were outstanding. What truly made the experience special was how she made the entire photoshoot feel like a fun activity for us as a couple. Her creativity shone through as she guided us through various poses that felt incredibly natural. Grace's ability to put us at ease made the entire experience enjoyable and stress-free. One more remarkable detail was her dedication to research, ensuring we had perfect sunrise photos. It was evident that she went the extra mile to time everything perfectly. What stood out the most, though, was her unique talent for capturing the emotion and joy of the moment. I can't thank her enough for creating such a magical and unforgettable memory for us!

Whatever it is, we want to capture and preserve the moments that make it special to you.

If you're looking for your wedding or engagement photographer, your search is over. The moment I saw Aimee's photography, I knew I had to hire her to capture our engagement shoot and wedding. My husband and I don't consider ourselves to be naturals in front of the camera, but Aimee is a superstar at posing us without feeling like we're posing. She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. Not only is Aimee amazing behind the camera, she's incredibly organized and great at communicating. She send us a form to fill out for the family formal pictures at our wedding so we were able to get through all the iterations of family photos in a breeze. She was also very quick at responding to any questions I had leading up to our wedding day. Aimee was able to capture every important moment of our wedding day. I love looking back at our photos because Aimee captured the joy and excitement on our faces and the faces of our guests perfectly. I'm so happy to have these photos I can look back on and remember exactly how I was feeling in the moment. I truly hope we have another opportunity to work with Aimee again in the future!

I am a Documentary Wedding Photographer who captures Candid and Natural moments! I like to blend right into your day and clients describe me as calm, cool and personable. I take a variety of photos but make sure I’m not noticed while I move around. I see my purpose as preserving moments. My favorite feedback is that I captured moments that the couple didn’t see. Most importantly, I’m here for you! That might mean directing your family and keeping everything under control. My goal is to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable throughout the whole process.

Awarded Best of Zola
We picked Konrad because his candid shots were absolutely outstanding. Neither one of us really cared too much about formal portraits, so we thought he'd be perfect. Little did we know how skilled he is at turning even boring staged photos into really beautiful shots. He kept us relaxed, directed us well, and was super efficient. We barely noticed him throughout the event as he snuck around taking pictures and the shots did not disappoint. Our friends remarked that he was truly all over the place, doing the work of multiple people. If you want someone who will respect what you're looking for and produce works of art for a reasonable price, Konrad is the way to go.

Barbora was a joy to have photograph our wedding (and engagement photos!)! Our photos speak for themselves — she captured our day authentically and beautifully! We couldn’t be happier with how she was able to perfectly capture our joy, love and the beautiful surroundings. We really appreciated how she went above and beyond to get the perfect shot/angle, scrambling up stairs, hiding in trees, pre-visiting our venue to scope out spots, and working SO hard for such a long time. She recommended poses and reviewed our photos list the week before, which helped make sure we didn’t miss anything :) She also did SUCH a great job arranging our flat lay photos, helping organize family photos and jumping in to capture candid photos throughout the night! Not to mention, we got our photos back quickly and there were so many! She is responsive, helpful and truly a pleasure to work with.

That way, you get to be fully present on your wedding day and you get to relive that day over and over again with the same intensity, joy and love. My not-so-secret sauce is this: I get to know you. I find out what makes you and your lover tick, and then, I craft a visual story that's reflective of you. My utmost goal is to create joyful imagery for folks who want things documented exactly as they felt.

I was fortunate enough to be surprised, on what would have been our wedding date (COVID...) this past September, 2020 by my fiancé & best friend. My surprise was an epic "however long you want/need" photoshoot with Maggie here in Washington DC. Maggie picked the perfect spot to go with my minimalist and greenery aesthetic preferences (without having ever met me btw..), all while making it super fun and relaxed. Maggie's communication was great, provided great recommendations on how to pose or engage with others in the shots and made us all feel beautiful! She had our photos to us within a few days, the editing was immaculate and I still use them to this day!

As a DJ I work with many different photographers, yet there are a only a few who stick out as being great at what they do, Asa is one of them! He's super attentive to the details and also pays attention to the big picture which is very helpful at an event as dynamic as a wedding. You know someone is experienced when they show up early, relaxed and with a smile on their face, all signs of a true professional. As for his photos, well they are simply awesome!

The best way to tell honest stories is through keen observation. How do I know? Because I spent 15 years as a journalist before becoming a wedding photographer. By paying attention to the ways you interact with your loved ones, I capture the in-between moments that will, one day, be significant. And using a trained eye and subtle approach, I do so unobtrusively.

And finally, our wedding, where singing, dancing and love was reflected in every photo of not only my wife and I, but also those that were there to celebrate with us.

Growing up in rural Virginia my intro to photography came to me at 14 while breaking into abandoned houses with friends to take photos that can only be describe in retrospection as “experimental”. Fast forward a handful of years and I found myself going 'legit' and holding a BFA in photography, later finding yet more perspective and cutting my teeth shooting society events in NYC. Having now spent more years of my life taking photos than not, it’s safe to say that I’m all in.

Working with Cassidy was a fantastic experience. He listened to what we wanted, gave us ideas from his experience working at our venue and made us feel completely comfortable. Everyone told us when selecting a photographer to make sure you are comfortable with them since they are involved in some of the most intimate moments of your day - and while that was true - he managed to get so many great shots without intruding or in some cases even being noticed. He caught serious moments, funny private moments and of course all of the formal moments. We have recommended him to multiple friends of ours and will continue to do that moving forward. You cannot go wrong working with Cassidy!

  • Starts at $7,500

I was born and raised in a quiet seaside town on the South Shore of Long Island. I grew up in a place where good, strong love grows with parents who have been together since they were 16 years old. They taught me that true love grows in the face of hardship and, as strong believers in their faith, that love is, indeed, patient and kind. And so as soon as I realized that wedding photography didn’t have to be posed and mechanical; that I could shoot weddings from a more organic and authentic lens; that I could document a story, not direct one, I was hooked!

Having a good photographer was one of my priorities for my wedding. I knew the day was going to be a whirlwind and I wanted to be able to look back and at least have one photo where my eyes weren’t closed or something. Lauren absolutely delivered — I don’t think we’ve ever looked as good in pictures and I know I probably won’t again!! Lauren also recommended Elizabeth for our day-of coordinator and I don’t know what we would have done without her — I definitely would have lost my mind, of that I’m sure. First, I can’t overstate the importance of finding a photographer with whom you have a good rapport — Lauren has this charisma where you instantly feel at ease and like you’ve known her your whole life. It frankly made me less nervous and I think that translates really well in the photos. She’s also a master of making you look the best in posed photos - giving little positioning directions that you look elegant without looking stiff. Every time I look at the pictures I’ll notice another candid moment that Lauren managed to capture or simply marvel at how she somehow can translate emotion in a still picture — I find myself smiling and definitely not crying (jk definitely crying) because you can FEEL what we were feeling in these photos. Second, get you a planner who is superhuman. Elizabeth took over six weeks (!) before the wedding and it was like a literal weight was lifted from my shoulders. At our first meeting she went through her checklist (and mine bc of course I had my own) and said “I’ll take care of it” to literally everything... and then...did?? I was fully prepared to have to follow up with vendors and micromanage but I basically didn’t have to do anything. It was magical. Elizabeth and her team did so much work and went above and beyond in literally every way to ensure we had a perfect day. Anyway, if you’re struggling with choosing a photographer because there are 72525 million to choose from, and you like the style of Lauren’s photos, go for it ASAP. Lauren is incredible and I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her. And if you need a day-of coordinator (or a full blown wedding planner!) pick Elizabeth - she has the eye for design and the capability to pull it off and pull it off well!

My goal is to deliver luxury, editorial images that capture the true essence of your love story. I approach each wedding with a fresh perspective, knowing that every couple is unique & deserves to have their story told in a way that is true to them. So count on me to take charge when needed & when I'm not - to keep on authentically & artfully documenting your day.

Jenn was absolutely incredible to work with. I felt SO lucky when I came across her work on social media - which was genuinely more beautiful than photographers charging 2x or more. I probably inquired with 10 photographers beforehand, but the moment I found Jenn, knew we'd choose her for her beautiful work. We loved our engagement photos, and she gave us (stunning) sneak peek wedding photos the day after our wedding! From her "detail" shots, teaching us how to pose (thanks!), scoping out the best spots for beautiful shots, creating a wedding day photography timeline for us - she was so professional, creative, and easy to communicate with. Also as a side note, she is an engineer and I don't know how she is blessed in equal measure with both left-brain precision and right-brain creativity. She also has some very cool options, like Super8 film, polaroids, etc. that we opted to add on - her work is timeless and beautiful and I can't recommend her highly enough.

We're so glad we found her and would use her for all life celebrations!

Photos from the Harty

5.0

Arlington, VA
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $4,200

Photos from the Harty is a small but mighty team of wedding, event, & lifestyle photographers. We've photographed - and attended - tons of events, weddings, etc. We've learned a lot. One of the things that has really stuck with us is this: not only do you need to love your photos, but you also need to love the photographer. You'll be spending the majority of your day with this person.

Looking for a sign that you’ve found the right photographer and your search is over? Look no further than Photos from the Harty! Our search turned up countless potential photographers, but our interview with Photos from the Harty sealed the deal. They are so personable and fun that we knew they would fit right in at our wedding - and they did! They were with us during every moment from intimate to silly and they made us feel super comfortable as if we were being photographed by longtime friends. The best part? The love and happiness that we felt during our wedding day is felt in every single photo. They captured our wedding day so perfectly that when it came time to hire a photographer for maternity photos and family photo shoots - there was no question who we wanted (and those photos all turned out perfectly, too)!! They have our highest recommendation. Stop looking and hire them, now!

I started off in birth photography and maternity shoots. I got asked to be a backup photographer for 2 weddings and fell so far in love with wedding and engagement photography, I had to add packages. I had so much fun and ended up making some great friendships doing so.

Chaya did our family photos. As you can imagine, it was chaos. We had 10 people in our home who came to meet our newborn. We wanted this special moment captured as this was the first grand baby. I remember sweating and running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, but the whole time, Chaya remained so calm and concise. She kept saying "don't worry about the pictures or what people are doing, that's my job." She took that added pressure right off of my shoulders.

If I had to describe myself in five words it would be: food, exercise, animals, travel, and art (not in any specific order). You know you have found the right career when you can honestly say you do it for the passion, for the excitement, and for the love of documenting someone’s precious memories. Photography has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I have been photographing weddings in the DMV for the past eleven years.

I can't recommend Cicely and Jason enough. They were communicative, collaborative, and just genuinely great people. They were really open to trying out anything that we really wanted to do and brought plenty of experience and helpful ideas to the table from the start. Their ability to capture the tiny details and a much broader sweeping view of our day really was the sell for us. And they weren't afraid to really get into the middle of a rager and capture moments you'd have never known about otherwise. Photography is so embedded in capturing your day that having creative people you really enjoy working with is critical. Years later, Cicely and I still message each other to check in. I genuinely can't express how great getting to know and work with them was for us. Cheers.

Danielle Real Photography

Washington, DC
  • Photojournalistic style
  • Starts at $7,000

Hi - I'm Danielle. A wife. A mom to three wonderful children. A wedding photographer. I've been shooting weddings since 2010. 300++ weddings and counting. I love working with natural light, real moments, and images with energy and emotion. I would love the privilege of hearing your love story. If you'd like to inquire, please email or call to set up an interview.!

We booked Danielle for our engagement session and April 2024 wedding. Me and my husband aren't confident in front of the camera and at our engagement session, Danielle made us feel so comfortable. At that moment, we knew we made the right choice for our wedding day! Danielle was an integral part of our planning process - happily scheduling calls as needed to help us develop our timeline, narrow down locations for photos, and even providing us with a detailed timeline and checklists of things to bring for photos. On our wedding day, Danielle ensured that we remained on schedule with our timeline, capturing all the photos that we wanted and needed in a short timeframe. She made an effort to learn the names of our wedding party and family and provided everyone with guidance and feedback in a fun and engaging manner to make sure every photo turned out great! We recently got our sneak peeks back and were so thrilled with how they turned out. We're looking forward to seeing our full gallery soon! Danielle also provided a second shooter at no additional cost to us and he was absolutely fantastic as well! Chris handled getting ready photos of my husband and his groomsmen, making sure they stuck to the timeline, and getting them to where they needed to be - the hardest job of all. He was great to work with and captured beautiful images from different perspectives and angles that we wouldn't have gotten with just one photographer.

I recently reached out to Ms. Deanna Reid to take photos of some inventory I designed and created. I was very impressed with the professionalism I received! Ms. Reid went above and beyond my wildest expectations! She arrived early, staged my inventory (Gowns, Veils, and Overlays) and wrapped up the session in a short amount of time. I was over the moon with the pictures I received! The photos came out so clear and crisp! It was a pleasure working with her! I look forward to working with Ms. Reid in the near future! I highly recommend Ms. Reid for your Photo needs!
