My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to work with Jo and her husband David for our stylized "Mad Men" theme engagement photo shoot (which came out spectacularly) as well with Jo at our wedding. We could not be more thrilled with our photos, their style and the moments that were captured! Jo and her other principal photographer were professional, personable and truly a joy to work with. We could NOT have chosen a better photographer to work with!
After exchanging a couple of emails, I decided to meet Jo in person to talk about wedding photography. We immediately hit it off. Jo is one of the sweetest and most enthusiastic people you could ever meet. She listened and took notes on every idea I had. Before our wedding, we had a call going over the details of the day. I can’t begin to explain how happy I was that Jo was such a pro at this and would be guiding us through the day. Whenever she said “We will get you in your dress at 2:45pm and make sure all the bridesmaids are dressed by then” I breathed a sigh of relief that she would be in charge. Throughout our wedding day, I leaned on Jo to help make decisions about what was best at the moment. Her assistant Vince was great - he brought such positive energy throughout the day and captured some great moments. We received all of our wedding photos and everyone has loved them and couldn't believe all the moments they captured so well. I would absolutely recommend Allegro Photography for anyone looking for great people to have by your side throughout your big day.
We had the pleasure of working with Dave and Jo for our Cape Cod summer wedding, and we could be any happier with our experience. I would absolutely recommend Allegro to any bride looking for amazing wedding photos and incredibly professional, easy-to-work-with photographers .
We scheduled an engagement shoot to get us comfortable with being photographed, and also to help Dave get to know us so that he could capture our personalities and relationship in our wedding photos. We also met with Dave before the wedding to develop our list of ‘must have’ shots. This preparation made the family and wedding party portraits a total breeze. He easily directed our friends and family in and out photos, and he didn’t miss a single combination! He also made sure to get all of the group shots with our friends during the reception.
We were lucky enough to get both Dave and Jo for the 9 hours of coverage on our wedding day. We hardly even noticed them during the wedding. They managed to stay out of the way but stay close to action so they could capture all of the important moments. Allegro had our photos back to us within just THREE weeks of our wedding! We got around 1,000 photos total (password protected online gallery), and they all looked amazing!
The whole day went by so quickly, and the photos are a lovely reminder of how perfectly everything went, and how much fun we had celebrating with our friends and family! We had so much fun looking through our photos the first time (just after our honeymoon) and noticing all of the small things that we missed during the wedding. I’m so glad we had such amazing photographers to capture all of these special moments. Although a bit pricier than other photographers in New England, these wedding photos are something we will cherish for our entire lives, and I believe Allegro Photography is absolutely worth the premium. I would absolutely recommend them to others!
My husband and I originally had eloped, and the few pictures we took at the court house on my cell phone were lost when I broke my phone a month or so later. So, when we decided to have a traditional wedding with our family and friends six-months later, we made sure that our wedding pictures would be our primary concern.
Allegro Photography did not disappoint! Jo and David were amazing through preparation, the big day, and the final product. Our pictures looked like something out of a magazine - every moment and emotion was captured on film for us to enjoy for years to come. We can't thank them enough!!!
Allegro Photography was an incredible photographer for our wonderful fall wedding in Boston. From our initial meeting with David and Jo in their studio, they shared a range of options and let us pick which photography package worked best for us and our families. They were quick to respond on email and provided a lot of tips and ideas for both our engagement session and our wedding.
We genuinely enjoyed working with David and Jo -- both made us feel comfortable. It's not easy or normal to have photos taken of you -- this team did a very good job of providing advice when needed and being an invisible ninja when they knew how to get a great shot without us realizing it.
Our engagement session was such a fun day. We had no idea what to expect and it confirmed that we went with the best photographer. We laughed genuinely and felt like we got to know these two over the course of our entire process.
On the wedding day, David and Jo caught so many small details that I now realize I didnt see. This perspective and vantage point of how to capture a moment -- the emotion, the subtle details, or a fleeting expression -- these are the more emblematic pictures from such an important day. This skill is shared by both David and Jo and demonstrated throughout their work.
We are excited to work with the Allegro team to create our photo book -- it will be hard as we are blessed with a wonderful range of photos that tell the "story" of the day.
Trusting David and Jo to capture moments and interactions between me and my now-husband was a very important aspect to our working relationship. We genuinely enjoyed our time with them -- they made a very special event all the more so by being a part of it with us.
When choosing a wedding photographer, you want more than a series of "pretty pictures"... You want the photographs to tell the story by capturing the excitement, energy and emotions of the moment. Allegro does just that and more! We knew when we first saw their work during our daughter's and son-in-law's engagement session, that their's was a unique talent. Reliving life's special celebrations are why one hires a photographer. When Jo and David are behind the camera-the memory comes alive! Their artistic ability and keen sense of "the moment" are evident. Just look at their work...it says it all! They are exceptional and we are so pleased that they were a part of our daughter's wedding!
Jo & David serves as the perfect photography duo. Their artistic instinct and technical expertise is unparalleled. We're very happy that we chose them as our photographers.
Finding a great photographer for our wedding was one of our top priorities so we were absolutely thrilled to get the chance to work with Jo. Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of a camera but Jo is so sweet and fun to work with, she quickly put us at ease. The engagement shoot was a great way to get to know each other and feel more comfortable being in front of the camera.
On our wedding day itself Jo was always calm and reassuring, and even though we knew she was around she blended so well, we weren't always aware of her. We got numerous compliments from our guests about how wonderful they thought she was! We couldn't have asked for a more talented, thoughtful and professional photographer and feel so lucky to have been able to work with her and have her document our wedding day!
David of Allegro Photography did our engagement and wedding photos and will be putting together our album. He was great to work with and responded to our requests int he sorts of photos he took. They all look great so we're having a hard time picking which ones to put in the album! They are not the cheapest photography service out there, but they are highly talented and professional. We also appreciated their willingness to build in digital negatives to the package without doubling the price.
The Very Best Wedding Photographers!
I met David and Jo when my sister got married in July 2007. The photos they captured of her wedding were absolutely stunning, so naturally everyone we knew wanted to hire them for their parties and events. We started seeing them at so many events, that over the years they have become great friends. A wedding doesn't quite feel like a wedding without them. Just after I got engaged, before we even really started planning our wedding, I called David and Jo to share the good news. My fiance and I carefully selected our wedding date around their availability. There is no one else in the world I wanted to photograph our special day. Their artistic, yet classic photography style is unmatched by anyone in the business. Not to mention, their warm, light-hearted and incredibly fun personalities. I have worked in the wedding industry for several years now and have never met anyone quite like them. They are so professional - during the big moments, you and your guests don't even notice them (ceremony, first dance, toasts), yet you end up with these priceless images that seem as though they were right there, in the thick of it, capturing every moment, at every angle. During the portraits, they are easy-going and efficient and just plain fun to be around. The images speak for themselves, so just browse their website/blog/facebook and you will instantly fall in love with their work. I can't say enough wonderful things about them and I could not be happier with the way my wedding photos turned out!
Dave and Jo did an absolutely amazing job! I looked at so many photographers for our wedding and their portfolio stood out from the crowd because in every shoot they did you really got a feeling of who the couple was and their personality. I was looking for a photographer that could capture the feeling, emotion and joy of our day beyond just posed photos and shots of our decorations. David and Jo definitely captured our personalities in the photos and they will forever remind me of how happy I was the day I got married. They were so easy to work with and flexible to our needs for the day. They made everyone feel at ease and we got AMAZING photos of our day. I would highly recommend them for your own special day, you won't be disappointed!
Allegro photography absolutely exceeded my expectatntions. Their eye for beauty and attention to detail created the most gorgeous wedding photos I have ever seen, and I am so proud to show them off to family and friends. Every photo was a work of art, and the passion and excitement that David and Jo have for their work is so fun! Yet even beyond the amazing images they create, there is a decorum of professionalism and consideration that comes in being an Allegro client which is truly phenomenal. If you are in the process of planning your wedding, let me explain that, next to your bride/groom, your photographer is next in line as the person who will spend the most time by your side. Not only do David and Jo acknowledge this fact, but they seem to happily embrace it. Jo in particular was there at every turn to help zipper a gown, fix a veil or simply calm nerves. She helped to explain where I should be going, what I could expect next, and to remind me of some of the photo ops I had envisioned- these kind courtesies are priceless and honestly will make your day. Such a pleasure to work with- I cannot recommend Allegro highly enough! Thank you David and Jo!
We were absolutely in love with the way that Allegro captured our wedding day. The photos are full of life and emotion and are so unique and distinct from many of the canned wedding photos you see out there. They are true artists and create poetry with their photography. The moments of emotion go by so quickly on the actual day that we cherish the way Allegro captured our special day with not just photos but true memories. We couldn't be happier to have chosen them as our photographers. It is a very special relationship you build with your photographers and we truly trusted them all along the way. We knew we were in good hands with them and we were not dissapointed!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for photographers who are extremely devoted to creating an artistic, emotion-filled portrayal of your special day.
It would also have been nice to have access to our digital pictures before making our album because making the album is quite a legnthy process which takes a lot of work after all the wedding planning is over...especially soon after the wedding when you want the photos the most and are exhausted from everything wedding-related. However, the whole reason we want the photos is because we are absolutely in love with them!
Jo and David were excellent to work with. David gave great direction for perfect pictures. He was unobstrusive and caught the important moments. Many of the guests commented on his extreme professionalism and dedication.
Allegro Photography is an absolutely amazing duo. They are just genuine, wonderful people and also extremely talented at what they do. They made us feel comfortable (and gorgeous!) at our engagement photo session - for which they traveled from Boston to Long Island so we could have our shoot at our home. The pictures came out so beautiful and we were beyond excited for our wedding photos. Let me just say, we were NOT disappointed. Our wedding photos came out absolutely incredible - they were featured on Style Me Pretty and are going to appear on Glamour's Save the Date blog soon, too. Allegro Photography captured our BIG DAY perfectly and I just cherish the photos so much. I would highly, highly recommend this vendor - they were beyond wonderful from the moment we met until today (8 months after the wedding we are still pals!).
Jo and Dave are amazing. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. They worked with us ahead of time to understand exactly what we wanted out of our photos and ensured they got everything we wanted and more. They were so professional during the day, and they kept us on a great timeline during all of our family and wedding party portraits and bride/groom pictures. Every single family member commented to us how fantastic Dave and Jo were during throughout wedding day itself. Hire them for any photography needs, they are a pleasure to work with. You wont be disappointed.
