The entire crew at CLB is amazing. I must append this review by saying so far we've only done our engagement session. For a more detailed review of CLB from me check out their FB page as it does not have character limitations (like this site). The cliff notes version of that review is that CLB is awesome. The personality of everyone that works there is great. Their creativity is unmatched. As the future groom who is financing the wedding, every decision we make for our event is thoroughly vetted. I wasn't crazy about the idea of the engagement session but it turned out great. The pics were really good plus I was dreading having to do it but not only did the photographers make me feel at ease it turned out to be a lot of fun! I'll update this review after the wedding. So far, so great!
There are not enough good things I can say about Suzanne and CLB photography. Working with them was awesome on our wedding day. They are true professionals and will help you plan out your wedding day so that it goes as smooth as possible. I am so excited to see our final pictures and have 1000% trust that they will be beautiful! Thank you so much, Suzanne & Sam!!!! You guys are awesome!
My wife and I had an amazing experience with CLB. The entire team is warm, welcoming and fun from the initial meeting to the big day itself; they are true professionals and were a blast to work with. We decided on an engagement shoot that would mostly be indoors at a Victorian B&B, and Chris rose to the occasion, making use of the confined spaces in an intimate and beautiful way. He put us at ease immediately; his creative energy and unique perspective come through in everything he does, and the results far exceeded our expectations.
For our wedding day, we got to work with Fawn. From the moment she arrived at our hotel room, she was totally focused (I thought we were organized and prepared for her arrival, but boy was I wrong!) and got us all on track for the pre-ceremony photo sessions. To say she's a lot of fun would be a massive understatement! From trudging up and down the Boardwalk to riding in the back of my parents' van and heading out onto the jetty, she was full of boundless energy. Absolutely everyone loved her. We just got our photos back (took almost exactly 8 weeks) and are incredibly impressed with her work. She has great ideas and a great personality to match.
While CLB is a bit pricey (as are many NJ wedding photographers), photography was something that was important to us. We didn't want cookie-cutter images or uninspired poses; we wanted photographers who would capture our personalities and provide unique images of our special day. And that is exactly what CLB delivered (along with an attentive and fun team whose love of their work is unrivaled). We would highly recommend this studio. Thank you Chris, Fawn, and Suzanne!
Suzanne is wonderful! From the moment we met her & saw her work we knew that she was the photographer for us. Prices are reasonable which seems hard to find when booking a wedding. I was referred to CLB from a friend & our venue & I will definitely be referring more friends to them.
First I want to start by thanking Chris for not only amazing engagement pictures that we used for our save the dates and table numbers, but for the wonderful boudoir album I gave my husband as a wedding gift. Simply amazing work! Also want to thank Suzanne and Fawn for the amazing job with our wedding pictures everyone felt so comfortable with you guys it was great, all the pictures came out gorgeous and it's making it a very hard decision not only for thank you cards but for our album to choose from. Everyone did such an amazing job and I can't wait to use you guys again in the near future!
We absolutely loved everything about working with CLB!! My husband and I knew from the moment we met the team at the Red Bank Wedding Walk that these were the photographers for us! When a family emergency came up unexpectedly for one of our scheduled photographers, a friend came up to take his place and worked seamlessly with Suzanne. My husband and I were never even aware that there were any issues and everything was taken care of before arriving at our locations. There were no cheesy photographs taken and Suzanne and Josh helped to make everyone in the wedding party comfortable while taking our pictures. All of our family and friends had so much fun taking the photos and they even had us doing stuff we wouldn't normally do, like taking pictures in the median of a highway and in a giant field! The photographers at CLB have such an eye for quality pictures and just the few that we have seen so far prove that they are so worth hiring for anyone's special day!! Thank you Suzanne and Josh for making our wedding day such a memorable one and we cannot wait to see the final product!

We love them! Chris and Suzanne are awesome!! Chris photographed our engagement session almost two years ago and both Chris and Suzanne photographed our wedding that took place on Sunday, May 10th. They both are such wonderful people. Their humor makes the session more fun and engaging. They are not the typical boring photographers. Our bridal party loved them. My husband and I would definitely recommend CLB photography!
Chris and Fawn were so much fun, and they really ran the show on our wedding day. We have amazing photos, even folks who were nervous, or are normally awkwardly unphotogenic looked like professional models in our shots, even our "extra" shots. I can't believe how natural and suave we looked. I wish we had done engagement photos with CLB, but we'll definitely use them again for something. Very much recommend!
Chris and fawn were awesome on our wedding day. Reliable and fawn was with me every step of the way to make sure I looked great in every photo. They were also kind to both of our families and Chris made lots of jokes to keep us going. I love them both. After the family portraits they were like ghosts at the reception but every once and a while would pull us off if they felt inspired by a great shot. Can't wait to work with them again at our post wedding photo shoot!
Suzanne and CLB were amazing at our wedding.
We hired CLB Photography because they offer a different perspective on wedding photos. Chris LoBue and his partner provided us with such beautiful photos. They captured our special moments and made it unique. Not only are they creative but they made taking pictures so much fun.
I don't even know where to begin.... Chris, Suzanne and Fawn are nothing short of Rockstars when it comes to Wedding Photography.
My husband and I met with Suzanne months ago to discuss photography options for our wedding and our engagement pictures. We were at ease from the first minute and hired CLB the same night. Chris took some amazing engagement pictures, we were thrilled with the result. He captured the love we felt for each other in a way I never could have imagined. It made us incredibly excited for the Wedding Day.
Fawn, Chris and Suzanne all shared in photographing our Wedding. They all make posing for the camera incredibly fun, and are not afraid of anything when it comes to getting the best shot. I cannot wait to get our pictures back - I know they will be nothing short of amazing.
If you are in the Tri-State area do yourself a favor and hire them. You will not be disappointed!!!
To Chris, Fawn, & Samantha,
We just wanted to take the time to thank you guys for being absolutely, unbelievably amazing on our special day on October 10, 2014! (Even though we already knew you would be!)
From the time you showed up till the very end, you were absolutely fantastic! You made us feel comfortable, reminded us to take every moment in and make our day the way we wanted it but especially to breath! LOLOL
We were beyond excited to have our reveal done at stone street...that was our favorite moment and you guys helped create that memory for us! It was truly an unforgettable moment.
You guys made the day SO MUCH fun and enjoyable! Everyone couldn't stop talking about you guys and how much they loved working with you and how you guys were the perfect fit for us! And we couldn't agree more!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding the most unforgettable time of our lives!
We CANNOT wait to see all the pictures! We know they are gonna be ridiculously awesome!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Chris and Fawn did a phenomenal job capturing our whole wedding from start to finish. From the minute we met with Chris, 2 years ago, at a wedding show we knew this was our photographer. He made us feel comfortable and it was like we knew him for years. He did an amazing job on our E session, in which we had a blast shooting, and people are still talking about the pictures. Fast forward to the wedding day / night and both Chris and Fawn became apart of our wedding. They were apart of our bridal Party and took incredible shots at the church, venue, homes etc. They are a lot of fun, professional, and truly are the best in the business. We have found our photographers to use for future important events! Thank you CLB for making our day special!
Chris and Sam photographed our wedding at Watermark a few weeks ago, and it was an absolutely perfect event. Chris made certain that all of our special moments were captured. He ensured that my husband and I had lots of time alone together for our own pictures so that we never forget those special moments early in the day. Thanks for everything Chris and Sam!
Chris and Fawn were by far the best photographers I could have possibly had for our wedding day! We were with Chris from the start through our engagement photos, wedding planning sessions and the big day. He is so creative and passionate about his work that it gave us great confidence in him. He can take any idea that you might have and make it twenty times greater! In addition, we had the pleasure to work with Fawn the day of our wedding and she was incredible too. From not knowing her until the morning of our wedding, she made my time with her so comfortable, fun and so easy to work with!
I without a doubt would recommend CLB to anyone for their wedding day. Working with them is so incredibly enjoyable and you can be guaranteed that they will surpass your expectations. We have had our proofs for a few weeks now and they are all so beautiful I cannot make up my mind which ones I love the most. I am so grateful for CLB and the memories they helped to create for our wedding day.
