Who is Joel Simpson?

Joel Simpson Photography is a professional photographic service based in Union, New Jersey. "I take great pleasure in getting to know your vision for your wedding and in helping you map out the day to get the most out of your time and have the most fun. I want to know your particular needs and be sure we're comfortable working together—that we're a good fit."

Joel has a lifetime of experience photographing people and places around the world and now specializes in capturing special moments at weddings. These include not only the perfect timing necessary during the ceremony, but also the fleeting expressions of emotions that happen throughout the day. "My goal is to create an album that gives you the same feeling you had on your wedding day whenever you open it."

His albums consist of uniquely crafted panoramic collages that combine atmosphere, movement, elegance and love. Many of his clients consider them to be works of art. You have ultimate say over the images and layout before it is manufactured.

Services Offered

Joel dedicates a significant amount of time to planning and visualizing with his couples so he knows what’s important to them. He is available throughout the planning process for any questions or requests. Joel is sure to cover each important angle and uses unobtrusive techniques so as not to disturb the events. He also offers engagement shoots so soon-to-be newlyweds will feel comfortable in front of the camera before the big day.

Joel creates a 16x20 sign-in poster from your favorite photo at the engagement shoot, that your guests can write their good wishes on. He also downloads and PROJECTS the photos from the first half of the day during the meal, and he brings his 5-foot ladder to capture a giant group portrait of EVERYONE at the wedding that will fill a panoramic spread in your album.

He'll be happy to send you sample albums.

    Joel was the photographer for my daughter's wedding. His work was wonderfully creative, and he went out of his way to create a quality experience for all concerned.He went above and beyond the call of duty, and clearly was quite concerned about helping my daughter to capture her treasured moments. I highly recommend him, without reservation. You will be thrilled by Joel's work, most especially because you will see that he puts his heart into every photograph he takes. In addition, Joel is highly responsible, responsive, and very engaging. He's simply the best..

    Joel Simpson Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for this unreserved endorsement. I was very honored to be chosen for your daughter's wedding photographer, and not just because I was a family friend. It was a gorgeous event, and I loved meeting your extended family and being part of the other events that weekend.

    We couldn’t have made a better choice than Joel Simpson for our wedding photographer. He gave us more than we expected, over the top personal service. He was always available if we had any questions or particular needs. Our engagement session and guest book was amazing. We had a very large Orthodox Jewish wedding, and Joel and his 2nd photographer caught every aspect of it.

    The Storybook Album he created for us is a work of art. I’ve never seen anything like it! I really didn't want a photographer that was just going to take a bunch of standard pictures and put them in a plain book. The backgrounds of every page includes little details of the wedding like the place cards or the lace on my dress. Every time I look through it (which is often), I notice something new. His pictures really bring back the feelings and moods of our wedding day each time I open it, and it captures the excitement of everything that happened during that day. He took a great picture of my friends dancing and I printed it out and gave it to them as their engagement gift.

    We also did a post wedding shoot at the grounds for sculpture. I got to wear my dress again and we took really fun pictures because I wasn't as worried about keeping the dress pristine. If you want an exceptional experience with your wedding photographer, I recommend Joel without hesitation.

    Joel Simpson Photography's reply:

    Thanks so much, Gianna. Your wedding was gorgeous, a rich visual and emotional experience. It was a complete delight working with you and your family, especially your mom. I have a very warm place in my heart for you and yours.
