Gorgeous natural pictures!
Hands down the best wedding photographers in the business. This mom and pop business delivers like the big shops but better. From the moment I met Ben I felt like a part of the family. Every step of the way they were professional, responsive, and caring. Everyone involved in our day was incredible. The photographers take charge to make sure they get the job done but also have fun with you at the same time. They accommodated all of my crazy "pinterest" ideas with no complaints. At the end of the day our pictures were absolutely incredible.Sent on 12/15/2019

Love so far!
Looking for a photographer was the most stressful part of wedding planning, until we found Pearl Paper Studio! They have the exact style we were looking for, and are very professional and easy to talk to! I can’t wait until the wedding day, and to see the amazing pictures they take!Sent on 05/03/2019

Pearl Paper Studio was my favorite to work with!
There are no words to describe how truly amazing it was to work with Pearl Paper Studio! I was extremely grateful that we were able to book them to help capture memories for my wedding. They do not over complicate things and make it simple from day one. Ben and Karis was wonderful to work with from the start of our wedding process. From helping us figuring out the timeline for the day of too offering suggestions to other vendors that we can possibly use for our wedding. For our wedding day, my husband and I chose MJ as our main photography and our second photographer was Benson who was the ultimate dynamic duo! They were absolutely AMAZING to work with and to interact with on the day of our wedding. Both of sides of our families praise them as they did such a great job! From MJ directing and letting us know how to look Beyoncé ready for pictures to Benson making my 2 year old crying niece laugh for photos because she was nap deprived that day. They undoubtedly was my favorite vendor to work with for my wedding and I would highly recommend them!Sent on 09/16/2019

The Pearl Paper Team is the Best Around!
I'm writing this after pouring over my amazing wedding photos which arrived WEEKS earlier than planned (we just got married in September!). There are not enough great things I could say about Ben, Karis, MJ and the team at Pearl Paper. From start to finish they were so easy to work with and helped us define our style (when we had no clue what we were looking for, and realized my husband and I were on totally different pages!). After getting a feel for our awkward nature during our engagement shoot, MJ worked with us on our wedding day, making us feel perfectly comfortable (and not over-posed or photo-fatigued) while still capturing every photo we'd hoped for. Call Pearl Paper today!Sent on 10/30/2019

We had such a wonderful wedding day captured by Pearl Paper Studio! Our photos came out exactly as we envisioned- natural, bright, and intimate. MJ and Jeanie created a comfortable atmosphere for us and our guests. They were a pleasure to work with and true experts at what they do. They considered our thoughts and ideas & also offered their creative recommendations. The whole team, including Karis and Ben, worked hard in the careful planning to make our vision come to life and to make our wedding day as memorable as it was. They were not only attentive to our requests and quickly responsive to our emails, but also understanding, flexible, and very easy to work with. We highly recommend Pearl Paper Studio for any special event! We will continue to suggest her services to everyone and anyone.Sent on 09/25/2019

Could not ask for better photographers!
I hired Pearl Paper based on my friends' recommendations of them and their quality of their work. I loved how they shot their images and their editing style. Once I met Ben and Karis, I felt very much at ease! They took the time to make sure our styles and ideas were compatible. They were very easy and accommodating to work with throughout the whole process. MJ did our engagement shoot and she was such a delight! She was wonderful in helping us pose correctly and not look awkward! For our wedding day, we had MJ and Jeannie. They worked so wonderfully together, and even helped us throughout the day. They were patient in working with our big families. After the wedding, we got our pictures so quick and they were just beautiful! I could not recommend Pearl Paper Studios enough.Sent on 06/19/2019

I cannot say enough about how amazing Pear Paper Studio is! Ben and Karis are two wonderful people who assisted us with such professionalism and kindness. And we were truly blessed to have Steve and Ann Marie as our wonderful photographers for the big day. They captured every intimate moment that we can look back on for years to come! They made us feel so comfortable and we had such a blast with them. I cannot thank everyone enough for being a part in making our wedding day so perfect!Sent on 02/16/2019

Love Pearl Paper Studio!
Pearl Paper Studio was by far our favorite vendor from our big day. We are so happy with the way our photos came out overall. As a bonus we feel that we got a great value! Our lead photographer, Steve, and secondary shooter, AnnMarie, were both AMAZING. We were on a pretty tight time schedule, but Steve kept us moving along without making us feel rushed. Him and AnnMarie kept us laughing and really made our time with them an enjoyable experience. Pearl Paper Studio was also extremely thoughtful and accommodating in sending me some photos early when my grandmother passed away shortly after our wedding. It was above and beyond, and truly meant so much. I have already recommended Pearl Paper Studio to other engaged friends and will continue to do so!Sent on 03/12/2019

Pearl Paper Studio is great! Ben and Karis are professional but also extremely personable and make you feel extremely confident when putting your wedding day in their hands. We met with Ben when we booked and he was great- showed us tons of photos to figure out what we really liked and then matched us with Steve as our main photographer for our big day.Sent on 11/07/2018
We met Steve for the first time when we did our engagement session and he was great! He instantly put my husband and I at ease and got some amazing shots at the Asbury Park boardwalk.
I mostly dealt with Karis (Ben's wife) via email throughout the process. She was thorough and quick to answer any questions we had.
For the day of Ann Marie was our Second photographer (Steve being the main) and they were both excellent! We never felt like we were being bothered throughout the day and Steve was super excited to get some great shots with the fall foliage and beautiful sunset in the background. We cannot say enough great things about Pearl Paper. We can't wait to see our final pictures!

Ben and Karis were so professional and made us feel at ease about everything leading up to the big day. They answered all our questions almost immediately and made us feel at home whenever we went over to discuss anything. On the big day, we couldn’t have asked for a better team! MJ and Nimmi made everything fun for us - as a result all of the laughing pictures are legit genuine laughs! We are so pleased with our photos and we definitely would recommend them!!Sent on 02/02/2019

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Ben and Karis are, as well as their team. From the beginning to the very end, they were fantastic. Genuinely nice people who are there to make the process as easy as possible. They walked us through the day of and pointed out things we never would've thought of. Their attention to detail and professionalism eases your mind and you know you are in good hands.Sent on 02/09/2019
This translates to their team as well. MJ and Steve were our photographers for the day of. Not only were we impressed with them but, so were our bridal party and guests. I was frazzled the morning of, they came in and took over the reins. Steve took care of the guys, got them dressed in their tuxes and made sure they got to the shuttle on time. MJ helped me make some last-minute decisions and was a calming force throughout the day.
All in all, they are a fantastic group of people and we can't say enough about how much we love our photos. Truly something we will cherish forever.

Ben, Karis, MJ and Edmund helped us with our wedding back in September. My husband and i am very happy how everything turned out. They were the most pleasant photographers to work with even when i asked them to drive very far for my engagement shoot, they made it happen! thanks guys! especially MJ!Sent on 02/03/2019

We found pearl paper via a recommendation by close family friend. They are extremely professional and talented. They are very considerate during your wedding day, they know when to bother you for pictures and when to leave you to enjoy your day. Great all around!!Sent on 09/24/2018

We found Pearl Paper Studio through Instagram - I found a wedding photo that I absolutely loved that they were tagged in, looked at their Instagram page and immediately fell in love. I set up an appointment and booked right then. The lighting and style of the photos is so unique and original. The professionalism and artistry of the photographers is so refreshing. On our wedding day, Steve was like another maid of honor to me. He helped me put on my shoes, my veil, helped carry my dress around during photos. He is a wedding pro! He was working so hard the entire day. We really appreciated his dedication to getting great photos for us. We had such an amazing experience with Pearl Paper Studio. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking for true artistry in their wedding photos.Sent on 10/16/2018

The best! Incredibly happy I went with them.
I can't say enough great things about Pearl Paper Studio. Owners, Ben and Karis are incredibly responsive and helpful. Steve was our main photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding day and he was such a pleasure to work with. My husband and I are usually awkward taking pictures, and Steve made it such comfortable experience. Our wedding photos came out even better than I imagined. There were many candid pictures taken that we weren't aware of and those became our favorite ones! Steve and Nics made sure to capture every special moment and detail of our day. I love how you can look through my album and the whole thing tells a story. Their prices were very fair and the quality exceeds some of the most expensive portfolios I've seen. I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married!Sent on 02/01/2019
Joann · Married on 07/07/2018
We were really struggling to find a photographer who was both affordable and had experience working with South Asian weddings. We hired Pearl Paper Studios after seeing their work on a family member's wedding. We were so excited to see that they had just started offering services in Maryland where we were getting married. Pearl Paper Studios is not only affordable, but the quality of their photographs are exceptional. They are true artists. They were such a pleasure to work with, from the moment we reached out to them to when we got our photographs. They were so flexible with us and so professional during all of our wedding events. They never got frustrated, even when guests were asking them to take photos using their cell phones. I would recommend Pearl Paper Studios to anyone looking for wedding photographers. They captured our events better than we could have imagined.Sent on 11/07/2018

Beyond our expectations!
After a little research we found Pearl Paper Studio and knew they were the perfect fit for us! Owners Ben and Karis welcomed us into their home and took time to get to know us. From scheduling our engagement photos, to all the timeline details of our Wedding day, communication was always a breeze. They truly made us feel comfortable and at ease on the biggest day of our lives, capturing each special moment and the quality of the photos were beyond our expectations! Accommodating, flexible, affordable and simply good people. We highly recommend Pearl Paper Studio Photography for your special day!Sent on 04/14/2019

MJ is Worth every Penny!
Working with this team was one of the best decisions for our wedding! MJ and Miles had such a calm and easy going presence while capturing every moment of our special day. For the amount of time, quality of work and price, this was a steal!Sent on 01/30/2020
Sarah · Married on 10/07/2017
This studio's work is beautiful and professional!!! No one can beat their price and quality of work. The studio gave the engagement picture session as complimentary so the photographer and we can communicate and know each other before the wedding day. I feel that's a great idea. Our primary photographer is Steve and we love him! I sent him a bunch of pictures I got from pinterest to let him know the angles and visions I was hoping to get and he got most of them! I like he kept giving us guidance and suggestions for the poses for the photo session. On the wedding day, after the ceremony began he didn't pull us over for pictures, instead, he captured a lot of great moments on the wedding of us and the guests. Therefore, at the end of the day we enjoyed our wedding party and received thousands of beautiful pictures in around two months. We will recommend this studio to our friends and family.Sent on 12/11/2017

Amazing! Ben & Karis did not disappoint in their service for my engagement and wedding photos. They were so friendly and easy to approach when I was looking into photographers. I told them what kind of photos I wanted to take and they respected my ideas while sharing some insight of their own. They have a few photographers within the company and I was able to choose one according to their individual portfolios. My husband and I chose Steve as our main photographer (for the engagement shoot and wedding day) and we were given a second photographer, MJ, for the wedding day. Both of them were so kind and their directions were clear and easy to follow. They were creative in choosing the backgrounds and props around the venue which made the photos come out beautiful. Another thing I love about Pearl Paper is they give you your full set of photos in both color and black & white.
You will not be disappointed with their service!!!Sent on 12/15/2017

We hired Pearl Paper Studios for our wedding day photography, and were so happy with the results!

We loved working with Pearl Paper Studios. From the orignal meeting, through the engagment session photo shoot and our Wedding day everything was perfect. Steve made us so comfortable during our engagement shoot and the pictures came out lovely. On our wedding day Steve and MJ were not only our photographers but they also treated us so special and were our right hands throughout the entire day!

To anyone who is considering hiring these guy, our advice would be to "just do it!" you will not be disappointed. My now husband and I are Australian, we decided to elope in NYC last December with just the 2 of us. Lucky I found Ben Lau photography (sister company Pearl paper studio). From my first email to Ben, he was always quick at responding to my email/questions and was always ready to help. On the day of our wedding, Karis and MJ arrived early and they were so professional and easy going. They made us feel really comfortable to be ourselves. Not only were they our photographers for the day, they also offered to drive us around, carried our bags and jackets and Karis also had Bandaids ready when I blistered my ankles from my shoes. They both were so sweet and the results were amazing.Sent on 01/08/2017
To Ben, Karis & MJ, thank you guys so much for making our day so special. You guys did such an awesome job, we're so happy with the results!

When we were recommended Pearl Paper Studio, we knew we’d found “the one”. Within our first moments of meeting Ben, all of our worries about finding photographers for our big day quickly disappeared. He not only took the time to speak with us to answer all of our questions, but he also made us feel relaxed throughout the whole process. Benson, right from our first meeting made us feel completely comfortable and showed genuine interest in our ideas and plans for the big day. The engagement shoot was the perfect way for us to get comfortable with the camera, laugh a lot, and work out what worked best for us. He was simply a photographic ninja with our dog Pebbles, who at first was a little apprehensive, but became quite the little model. Both Benson and Stephen took a genuine interest in our history as a couple, taking the time to get to know us and explore our personalities, so that they could capture the best possible images. They were attentive and enthusiastic on the wedding day, resulting in our stunning photos which we couldn’t be more thrilled with. Their gift captured the raw emotions of the day from tears through to roaring laughter. They took gorgeous photos in a unique way of catching special moments between people. We loved how they captured the beauty of the wedding location and appreciated all of the little moments captured between us and our guests that are now in photo form. Ben and Karis were very efficient from the initial inquiry through to the big day and right up to the post wedding messages. We will forever recommend Pearl Paper Studio to friends and family. Thanks again for providing a first class service. With one of the biggest days of our lives and such a huge action packed event, we feared that we would not be able to stop and take it all in and the day would soon fade from our memories. However you’ve truly captured the essence of our day providing us with so many wonderful images. We will treasure the photos forever! Edwin & LeaSent on 03/07/2017
