Devin, along with his assistant Morgan, photographed our wedding a week ago, and we couldn't be happier with our decision to have them on our special day. They arrived on time, making sure to take plenty of photos of the girls getting their makeup done, in dress pictures, and all in between. I bought my dog a tux to wear, (since he was going to be home anyways) and Devin included him in a bunch of shots, realizing how much he meant to me. We then made our way to Spring Lake park, and took our "first look" photos. Devin and Morgan had great ideas for us there, which made for the best of photos. They are both laid back guys, which definitely helped when the nervous set in! They calmed us down as we were anxious, seeing each other for the first time all dressed up and ready to get married! We wanted to add on some beach and boardwalk shots as well, and they said absolutely, without hesitation. The wedding flew by as many warned us it would, but thankfully we had them there to capture every single moment, for us to remember forever. We even got sunset photos and pictures of us feeding the swans! We thank them beyond words can say, and honestly would recommend them to everyone. They are so professional and allow you to have the best time, without feeling like your missing out because you have to take photos. Hands down the best out there, and I highly suggest you booking them for your next important event.

Devin was an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment we met him at the complimentary engagement photo shoot until the moment he left our wedding reception. His easy-going, friendly, and fun demeanor was exactly what we needed to relieve stress during wedding planning and on the big day to ensure we enjoyed the whole experience. The photographs from the engagement shoot and the wedding day were the perfect balance of traditional posed pictures, artistic and creative backdrops, and candid shots, and all of the pictures perfectly captured the emotion and energy of the day. His assistant was equally as down-to-earth, friendly and talented. We can't recommend Devin Peppler enough!

This crew is the ultimate score! The quality of photos are super great, but more importantly every aspect of their approach was perfect for us. They are extremely pleasant and make it enjoyable to be getting your pictures taken. They were super enthusiastic and creative during our photo sessions. Impressive! Will definitely hire them for other events!

Devin's work is absolutely breathtaking! From the firth picture he shot of us at our engagement shoot and all the way through the last picture he took on our wedding night (a sparkler shot in the rain!), he was more than accommodating, professional and has the ability to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera! This was evident in the all of the gorgeous pictures we received from him as he captured the best day of our lives. I loved that I didn't have to worry about a single thing and I knew the pictures we would be getting would be exactly what we were looking for. Devin and his team are so talented and joy to be around at that! Hiring him was one of the BEST decisions we made when planning our wedding! We will treasure these pictures forever. Thank you, Devin!

Devin was our photographer for our October 2017 wedding and we could not have made a better decision in having him photograph our big day! Devin was extremely professional, making sure all photos accommodated our preferences, but also has a laid back attitude that is perfect for last minute changes and making all the members of our party feel at ease. It was actually raining the morning of our wedding, during our first look, and Devin was able to get the exact shots we wanted and bring an entire photo shoot together in short time. We were impressed by his ability to give direction and structure to the day, while keeping it fun and easy going. Working with Devin was very easy as he was very responsive and attentive. We’d highly recommend him for engagement and wedding photos!

My husband and I had our wedding on October 1, 2017 and are ecstatic we chose Devin as our photographer. It was a gorgeous sunny day and Devin was able to capture the most beautiful pictures on Point Pleasant beach. He was such a pleasure to work with as well as his assistant. Devin has a one of a kind personality and had made the entire picture process one to always remember. He is a very down to earth, fun, and creative photographer. Our pictures look amazing and we owe it all to Devin! We would highly recommend Peppler Photography. His work is absolutely breathtaking!

Our wedding was September 16, 2017. A day surrounded by some pretty unfavorable weather but we ended up lucking out and having pretty ideal weather. It was a great backdrop for the beautiful photos that Devin took. My husband and I are not very comfortable being photographed which is what I think we liked best about working with Devin. He is really easy to be around, while he was taking photos and during those moments in between. We felt like we just had one of our pals around who happened to also be taking pictures of us. Overall, the day was very relaxed and I know that Devin contributed greatly to that. Big "thank you" to him and his assistant for being there with us and capturing our most special moments.
Sam · Married on 07/09/2017
We got married in July 2017 at Liberty House in Jersey City NJ. Devin was absolutely amazing, we could not have asked for a better photographer. Devin and his assistant were extremely relaxed and helpful (carrying my veil) and made taking pictures fun and easy, not stressful. He has a great eye for creativity and we could not have asked for anything better. Devin is very flexible and goes with the flow of the day, which is very nice when you are stressed about everything! Overall, an amazing experience and would definitely recommend Devin for your wedding or event!
Katelyn · Married on 02/25/2017
Devin was recommended to us by a family friend and I think he is the best vendor recommendation we received! He is very friendly and laid back - which is key in wedding planning! From our engagement photos to the actual wedding day he made Joe and I feel completely at ease. Both of our families have had many kind words to say about him too! He made everyone feel comfortable! He helped me create a timeline for the day and kept the whole day moving perfectly! And of course captured so many great memories in the process - he will do anything for the perfect shot! Thanks again!
Deanna · Married on 09/24/2016
I hired Devin after seeing his very unique style of photography. My fiance and I met with him and his wife and hit it off right away. The last thing I want is a pushy photographer on my wedding day. He is very down to earth and shares many of the same interests that my fiance and I do. We decided to book with him right away. So far we have our engagement shoot pictures and they are simply amazing. I cant wait for our wedding day and to see the memories he catches on camera.
Kerry · Married on 09/23/2016
Devin was wonderful; my husband and I rave about him to anyone who will listen. We met him at a bridal show at Doolan’s Shore Club, and we loved his unique, journalistic style. His prices are also quite reasonable. He is awesome to work with, easygoing, with a great eye, and always looking for an amazing shot. We did an engagement shoot and wandered around Asbury Park, and he found so many great places for photos. We were so nervous and awkward in front of a camera but Devin did a great job of making us comfortable, and the pictures of course came out great. He is so willing to work with you and experiment with his shots, and the results are amazing. He brought an assistant with him to our wedding, Morgan, who also did an amazing job and had some pretty cool ideas too! We felt comfortable and confident in his hands from the moment we met him through to saying goodnight after our wedding ended. Family, friends, even the hair and makeup people loved him and had so many great things to say about him. As other reviews stated, it felt like we were working with a friend. We had a great time with him, felt so at ease, and were part of the creative process! Hire this man, you’ll love him!

Devin made our wedding experience spectacular with his great personality and professionalism. Our photos are amazing!! He's was great to work with and we would definitely recommend him to family and friends!
luke · Married on 08/20/2016
Devin, along with his assistant Morgan, absolutely killed it! He was impeccably organized, cool calm and collected, caught so many fleeting and hidden moments, and brought a fun spirit to the party. He had a signature guerrilla-style of photography during the ceremony and reception which allowed him to get great candid shots while blending in seamlessly to the party around him.
Brigid · Married on 07/09/2016
Devin and Morgan gave us the most perfect photography experience the day of our wedding. They took care of business, kept us both calm, worked incredibly well with our other vendors, and the pictures are absolutely incredible. Devin actually went out of his way to scout out a new, different, and unique location on the Asbury Park Boardwalk for our photos. If that isn't quality I don't know what is! You won't have
To worry about a thing booking with Devin & his crew!
Jackie · Married on 06/25/2016
We loved Devin from the first meeting. He is very light and easy to work with. He suggested that we do a engagement shoot to get more comfortable with him, so we did and we loved those photos. On our wedding day, Devin and Morgan arrived on time and were ready to work. They were very professional and patient with us, not to mention fun to work with. Our wedding was on the beach in June and it was super hot that day, but they were both troopers and rallied our family and bridal party to take those photos. We loved how our photos came out!!
Jamie · Married on 06/24/2016
We could not have asked for a better photographer!! Devin was the most down to earth, easy going person to work with. He was professional in every aspect and really listened to and respected what we asked for. Communication was very easy and he got back to us very quickly if we had a question or concern. He was great with the kids in our wedding and SUPER patient. Everyone in our wedding party and our families all LOVED him and kept talking about how great he was. We know how perfect he'd be from the first time we met with him. He was not pushy in any way and that we loved. His work and personality was all we needed to see and when we got in our car my husband didn't even want to consider another photographer. He has such great ideas for each any every picture we took. Our pictures looked absolutely amazing!!! I always felt much better when he was around, very calming for a stressed bride. I am still raving about him and recommend him to everyone!

Devin Peppler Photography was recommended to us by Xplosive Entertainment and we are grateful! Devin has a talent for capturing moments and the unique style he brought to our wedding ceremony and wedding reception photos is remarkable. That said, what we really loved about him was his laid-back and adventurous nature. We got married outside next to a lake in January in New Jersey (yes, you read that correctly) and Devin never once complained about the cold and went trekking through the woods to find awesome spots for pictures! The night of our wedding reception it was 5 degrees out and Devin dragged our tandem bicycle outside for pictures and set up the shot prior to us going to so we wouldn't have to be outside for too long. He deftly handled all those well-intentioned cell phone picture takers, which I can only guess is an act of patience. The thoughtfulness continues when he surprised us with a TV that had pictures scrolling from the wedding ceremony a month earlier set up at the reception. As you can tell, we would highly recommend him!

Devin Peppler is so wonderful, and an amazing photographer! He is a local, Jersey shore guy with a great artistic eye and an easy going attitude. At both our engagement shoot and wedding he made me and my now husband feel so comfortable and relaxed. Devin was also so much fun, and not corny or cheesy. It was as if we were working with a friend. Even all my bridesmaids were saying things such as, "Where did you find him? He's great! He's so cool," etc. He made us laugh the whole time. Devin has a background in surf photography, and his artistic eye comes through in his pictures. He knew exactly where to go and how to position us to get the perfect shots. I would recommend Devin and his team to anyone who wants beautiful photos and a fun experience while taking them.
Rebecca · Married on 09/06/2015
Devin's photos are absolutely amazing. I am so happy with all of our wedding pictures- they were completely worth the wait:) Devin and his assistant Morgan made us feel very at ease throughout the day. It was a pleasure to work with Devin and he is an incredible photographer!
Alex · Married on 08/28/2015
Devin and his team ARE the true dream team! When selecting our wedding photographer my husband and I immediately knew Devin was the man for the job. In addition to Devin’s amazing photos, his laid-back demeanor and ability to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera is irreplaceable. During the wedding Devin and his team caught every special moment without being pushy or in the way of our guests. From the tiny details, silly photos with the bridal party and traditional shots with parents and grandparents, Devin got it all! We are so happy we hired Devin and we are so thankful to have his amazing photos to share for years to come! We can’t thank you enough, Devin!!! All our best, Alex & Evan
Nichole · Married on 07/10/2015
Devin was an amazing photographer. He was open to all of my ideas and had his own creative poses and shots. He made us feel comfortable immediately and even gave us a free engagement shoot to become familiar with him. His work was stunning, but also exciting and creative. His prices are also very reasonable. He is very honest and let's you know if you need extra photographers or not. He told us that with our party size, we didn't need to pay extra to have two. He is interested in his customers' satisfaction and well being and is not out to make as much money as he can. I HIGHLY recommend Devin!
Nichole · Married on 07/10/2015
Devin was the greatest photographer we could have asked for. From the moment we met him, my husband and I knew he would be perfect. We were drawn to his laid back, creative style and his modern take on wedding photography. He and his wife did a free engagement photos hoot for us and the pictures were AMAZING. Though he had his own wonderful ideas for poses and landscapes, he was open to suggestions and happily took pictures that we requested. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and I cannot wait to see all of the amazing moments that Devin captured.
Alexandra · Married on 05/17/2015
I am not really sure where to start because Devin was AMAZING. I came across him on a whim and thank goodness I did. Due to weather and availabilty of our location I had to change my date a few times. He always responded right away, was patient and accommodating. We used Devin to shoot our engagement photos, and this was our first time being professionally photographed. He made us feel comfortable, and had plenty of creative ideas. You can tell he truly loves what he does. To top it off he sent me my photos two hours after the shoot!! We were THRILLED!! I would highly recommend him!
Jaime · Married on 05/09/2015
We got married at Doolan's Shore Club this past spring. Devin was one of several photographers recommended by the venue. We looked at a lot of photographers leading into the wedding. Devin's portfolio just blew us away.
He offered us a complimentary engagement shoot to go along with our wedding package. When we told him we already had engagement shots done, he said he could always replace the engagement shoot with a baby or first anniversary shoot. We thought that was really honorable.
On the wedding day, he made sure we kept on schedule so that we would get all the shots we wanted. We went to the beach. We took photos by the lake. We even made a pit stop at Surf Taco.
My mom made a specific request that we get all her relatives into a photo together and Devin graciously accommodated her in the midst of the chaos.
To our surprise, when we walked into the reception, Devin had already uploaded several photos that we had just taken and set up a slideshow on an LED screen adjacent to the dance floor. It made the reception extra special.
A few months later, we got the pictures. They were everything we hoped they'd be. The beach scenes were gorgeous. The shots near the lake captured us in front of freshly blooming cherry blossoms. As we put together the album, it was difficult to choose which photos to include and which ones to leave out. They were all so good.
We ordered an album through Devin. He put together a preliminary template, then was patient while we made changes to that template.
Overall, we highly recommend him. You'll love the photos. You'll love the guy.

We heard about Devin from a friend who is in the entertainment business. With a reference from a friend who deals with photographers and sees their work on a daily basis, we decided to take the advice and use him for our wedding. Everything about the photos, the process, and the service was flawless. When we first met with Devin, he showed us some more examples of his work and we were sold. He spent time getting to know us and get an understanding of what we were looking for in our photos. Devin has a very good eye for art and was able to pick some great settings and backgrounds and end up with a very creative set of photos. He was funny and energetic which is very important when trying to keep a group of people (including children) involved and smiling.
