He has been described as innovative, creative, phenomenally patient and professional, comforting yet firm, ever present yet unobtrusive, and the list goes on and on. Albert Postel is one those extremely rare photographers who is able to gently guide anyone being photographed into that perfect pose, and at the same time, blend into the crowd., I see my responsibility as photojournalist is telling a compelling story about the people who have granted me the privilege to enter their lives and document their relationships, love, humor, dreams and personality. This work is in the tradition of the great photojournalists that have used their artistic ability to document and interpret events and people with the unique sensibility that only a camera can capture. The role of the photographic biographer is to tell the story of the love and lives of the people communicating their commitment to each other in marriage.

Albert is not only an artist but also a psychologist and a handyman. He predisposed us to trusting him even before the wedding day because he got to know us as people, encouraged us to contribute our own creative ideas for shooting, and allayed our fears about the wedding running smoothly, so that by the time we met with him on the wedding day, we already had an affinity for him.Sent on 07/26/2011
Albert set the tone for the wedding day with his serene, supportive and unobtrusive demeanor when he showed up at the bridal suite to take photos of us getting ready. He put us instantly at ease by blending seamlessly into the environment as if he were part of the family. He delighted us with his practical knowledge of all aspects of bridal attire, from lacing up and bustling the wedding gown to offering suggestions on coordinating bridal jewelry to fixing my loosened earrings. Having Albert as a personal adviser and problem solver in moments of need was an unexpected bonus and a comforting gesture on his part.
Albert made the posing portion of the photographing process surprisingly effortless and fun for us, considering the fact that we are normally uncomfortable around a camera. He got around our reluctance by establishing intimacy and subtly focusing our attention in a way that would give him exactly what he wanted from us without us being aware of what that was until we saw the photos. Albert’s candid shots were even more mesmerizing because he managed to capture unforeseen moments and seemingly minute or inconsequential details that paradoxically ended up telling a story in a more powerful way than the obvious wedding scenes. His honest portrayal of the irony, humor, and the full range of emotions experienced on such an intense day made for a dynamic narrative.
Albert enhanced our wedding experience with his presence and his expertise, and we trust him unconditionally with documenting all of our special occasions in the future.

Albert's friendly and encouraging personality brings out the best in his subjects. I was amazed at how he could get everyone in a huge group picture to look animated and beautiful. He captures both the beauty and humanity of people he photographs. His artistic eye and creativity allows him to find unique and lovely angles and backgrounds and to enhance the colors in the scenes. We couldn't be happier with his photos and the experience of having him for our wedding.Sent on 06/22/2010
Listened to every word I said and captured exactly what we wanted. He and his assistant were so professional. Pics ready before I asked. All digital and burned to DVD for us. Reasonable price too. Used to be a fashion photographer in New York, so he knows what he's doing. Not typical wedding photographer stuff!
