Lucia Berezovsky · Getting married on 04/09/2021
One of a kind!
Joel made sure that every detail for our wedding was completely planned out, even the ones my partner & I hadn't prepared for. The entire process was so professional from the very first interaction that we had. He has a questionnaire prepared for you to fill out at the start of the journey so he can get the best idea of what you & your partner are looking for from the pictures.
My husband & I aren't very much about the typical love pictures. We didn't get an engagement shoot, actually we've never had any kind of shoot together! Lol. It was great to work with Joel & not be judged over the fact that we wanted to centralize our pictures on "the moment" & friends/family reactions. It's mainly because we love people being caught with their "real" emotions showing. Joel made absolutely sure that none of that was missing in our repertoire of 500 pictures. In addition, he did stress that having those "personal" pictures together was very important, and made it a point of having us pose a bit. Although it would not have been something Naz & I would have seeked on our own, we're extremely grateful that he pushed on his view as a photographer. As now we have one of a kind pictures on our own without guests looking like a million bucks. THANK YOU JOEL!
I decided to invest money & buy the package with a tailored box that has 100 pictures printed. He added as a gift a really high quality framed picture of our choosing. I couldn't have been happier with the results. The quality of everything was above anything we could have imagined.
Joel was also extremely patient with our lack of answer/late answer & payment plan. He understood how much we had going on in general & was receptive to our times. Something that to me, is priceless, considering he's a professional that needs communication to make sure all goes well!
I will choose him for every & any event that I have in my life, moving forward . Thank you Joel for making our experience stellar.Sent on 03/06/2020

Joel responded immediately to our last minute request to photograph our wedding in Jamaica. He made the entire process extremely painless and easy. I wish I had only chosen him sooner to take this worry off my plate. He not only had a questionnaire for us to answer, which helped him understand our wishes leading up to the wedding, but he implemented them flawlessly on the spot. The quality of the photos were mind-blowing!! I have never felt more beautiful in print. He also provided our digital pictures to us in record time: only 2 weeks after the wedding date! Totally unheard of in this industry. To top off an already amazing experience, we received the most lovely photo book and thumb drive which we will keep and cherish forever. I would recommend him in a heart beat!Sent on 04/29/2016

The pictures were awesome. Our friends and family loved them as well. My wife has already requested Joel's service for family portraits. Joel was professional in the manner in which he conducted his business. This included pre-wedding meetings to discuss logistics issues, his expectations and our needs. On the day of the wedding Joel ensured that our needs were met and our expectations exceeded. I adhered to his time schedule and this ensured that my wife and I got a lot of pictures in all the locations we wanted.Sent on 01/19/2016
I unreservedly recommend Joel as one of the best photographers around.

Photography was the most important aspect to our wedding and Joel went above and beyond my expectations. From beginning to end, he was professional, friendly and responsive. He really listened to what we envisioned for our wedding and made our dream wedding photos a reality. He is an extremely talented photographer who is dedicated to his craft and to his client.Sent on 08/07/2014
Joel took my wish of more candid and fun photos to a whole new level. He has an incredible eye for creative details and modern perspectives. He captured such memorable and genuine moments in an artistic and elegant way. Even the pictures that were "posed" are fresh, fun and unique. His skill, knowledge and talent completely blew us away. He is very easy to work with and made the day a lot of fun. He chose great locations and used the natural surroundings and weather to his advantage.
Even after the wedding, he continued to provide exceptional service - updating us on the progress of our photos and we ended up receiving them and our album very very quickly. We are so impressed with everything as he really told a beautiful story of our day. As I look through our gallery and album, I can re-live every moment. Having Joel as our photographer was one of the best, if not the best decision we made for our wedding.

Absolutely amazing. Words can't even begin to describe how rad the entire experience with Joel was. From start to finish he was so friendly and accommodating, he went above and beyond to meet our needs and make us feel special. As a photographer myself I was worried about getting exactly what I envisioned for our wedding photos. Joel's work exceeded expectations and is incredibly affordable especially considering the quality of the product and service. It was a steal, outstanding value. In addition to stunning, creative photographs Joel is charismatic and an absolute joy to work with. I would recommend Joel Finnigen Photography to anyone, words cannot begin to do him and his work justice. Thank you.Sent on 01/21/2014

Working with Joel was a wonderful experience. Joel is very professional and has great passion for what he does. It rained on our wedding day and Joel made my husband and I along with our wedding party feel comfortable and confident that there was nothing to worry about. When we received the pictures we had the proof. The guests at our wedding all mentioned how much they admired the way he worked. Our wedding pictures have gotten a multitude of complements from various individuals. Joel has different packages and the presentation of the packages is excellent. Overall it was fast and easy to get in touch with Joel via email, Facebook, telephone call or text message. We can't wait for our next big event to use his services again.Sent on 09/15/2013

Joel Finnigen Photography made my wedding a day to remember. The entire connection from contract negotiation, to event execution to settlement, was a pleasure. The interaction was professional, informative, entertaining, humorous and just wonderful. The pictures were very well taken, and captured all the memories in such a way that make me look back at my wedding pictures over and over again, not just on my anniversary. I would recommend Joel to anyone who needs this service anytime.Sent on 03/09/2014
