An Amazing Experience
Peter was referred to us by Yan Schwartzman Photography, and we had the pleasure of corresponding with the both of them while planning our wedding. Yan handled the business aspects (contacts and payments) and Peter did all of the photography for our engagement session and our wedding.
Peter was super fun to work with and his photography is amazing. I spent a good portion of our engagement photoshoot laughing and smiling because of the jokes that he and my fiance were telling me. Even though it was super windy during the shoot we managed to work with what we had and got really amazing memories as a result.
Our wedding day was so magical, and we really appreciate that Peter went above and beyond for it. He ended up showing up early in the morning and stayed with us throughout the day until we did the cake cutting and the bouquet/garter toss. It was great having such a reliable photographer with us for our wedding day.
He came up with lots of amazing poses for us to do and also let us do some silly photos with our bridal party after the serious shots were done. I really appreciated the fact that it felt like my wedding wasn't just a cookie cutter one, and that my photos that we ended up getting were something special and unique.
We received both our engagement photos and our wedding photos shortly after our sessions. I was super excited to get our wedding photos early (they were given to us a few days before the estimate in our contract, and that made me so excited!) The quality and amount of photos definitely exceeded my expectations, and I can highly recommend Peter for any of your wedding or engagement photography needs.
He also takes the time to talk to you like a person too, to get into you and your significant other's heads so that he can come up with the perfect poses for you two. It felt like I was spending the day with an old friend while I was working with Peter, which I really appreciated.
In the end we got tons of wonderful memories to look back on thanks to Peter. I am so happy that we had the chance to work with him, and I can highly recommend contacting him if you want some high quality work from a genuine person.

Competent in all aspects
We got in touch with Peter through Yan Schwartzman photography (for whom I've already left a similarly glowing review). Besides taking excellent photos covering a wide range of poses, wedding-goers, and situations, he also had an excellent attitude, dispelling our nervousness and accommodating our requests for goofier pictures. We would (and already have) recommend him to others without a second thought.

On the day of the wedding we met with (in person) our photographer Peter who was a pleasure to work with as well as being a true professional, We would not hesitate to recommend him! Leading up to the wedding his communication was great, he made sure we knew what was going on and was very informative about the timeline of the wedding photos. He has an amazing/creative eye. We were married two weeks ago and already have our photos back!. I cannot say enough positive things about Peter. He made our wedding the best day of our lives. Thank you!!!

We love Peter! We hired him for our wedding photography next September and did an engagement session with him in October! We recently got our pictures back from that session and we couldn't be happier! Peter did an amazing job and made sure to scope out the location before our shoot. He knew exactly where to go and planned out shots before we even got there! The quality of the pictures we got back was awesome and my photographer-fiance was very impressed! Can't wait to see what he does for our wedding!

We used Peter for our wedding in august and i was thrilled with how our photos came out. His eye for getting the best shot is impeccable. It was a pleasure to work with him and if i had to do it all over again, i would still have him for my photographer. We planned our NJ wedding from Florida and he did a great job working around our schedule and working through skype and phone appointments. I cant say enough good things.

Peter is a pleasure to work with as well as being a true professional, I would not hesitate to recommend him! After just viewing his portfolio online he made my short list already, and after meeting with him I was sold (I actually only met with one other photographer, I was done looking after speaking with Peter!). Leading up to the wedding his communication was great, he made sure I knew what was going on and that he had the info he needed without stressing out an already stressed out bride. The day of the wedding he arrived early and scouted out the location for great photo spots while he waited for me to get ready. Even though I through a few curve ball requests at him the day of the wedding he took everything in stride and I credit him personally with keeping us on schedule, I would have been late for my own wedding without him ha! At our ceremony and reception he got lots of great shots without ever making it feel like he was in our or our guests faces. At one point I remember thinking I hadn't seen him in a while only to look over and see him only a few feet from me. And when we got the photos back WOW. My fiance has said multiple times how lucky we are that some people only get one or two nice shots from their wedding and we have enough to fill an entire album. He works his tail off taking photos and it really shows! Thank you again Peter!!!

Peter was absolutely amazing! He was so attentive and responded very quickly every time I needed him. You can tell that he truly loves what he does and is passionate about marriage and photography. He was a huge hit at the wedding because he was a lot of fun and everyone who got a chance to speak with him loved him! My favorite thing was he was so invested in us and went above and beyond from beginning to end of this process, before and after the wedding. His package was perfect for us and extremely worth it. I would use him for every event I have in the future!!

Peter is amazing to work with. He's very responsive and flexible and his quality of work is great. We used him for our engagement, then a photo shoot, and the actual wedding (along with a 2nd photographer). He's by far much more competitive than some of the other bids we got and was professional and courteous throughout.

Peter has an exceptional eye to capture beautiful moments the day of the wedding. He really wants to make sure his clients are happy, and is flexible to try different poses. He, and his second shooter, arrived on-time and worked the whole day. Despite the weather being rainy, Peter helped keep the energy up during all the different photos. The best thing about Peter, that is hard to find from other photographers, is his great responsiveness. Peter works hard to create a personalized experience for each client, and as so continued to answer my many questions and photo requests. He is gracious, kind, and very fair. These are really helpful characteristics when selecting a great photographer!
We are extraordinarily pleased to have selected Peter and his team to be a part of our special day.

I booked 1.5 months before my wedding. He was extremely professional, polite and took the time to ask a lot of questions to ensure he understood our needs. The day of the wedding he was on time, courteous and took beautiful photographs. His work is incredibly beautiful and artistic. We are lucky and delighted to have found Peter!

It was a pleasure working with Peter for my City hall Ceremony in NYC . He knew all the perfect spots for beautiful photos. He was calm and patient with all my guests, and with me, as I was struck with wedding-day nerves!
I loved that the photos do not look staged, fake, or cliche - he created lovely images that capture the beauty of the city and the excitement and romance of the wedding day.
Peter patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen the wedding images loves the photos. His photography is highly recommended and I would certainly hire him again.

Peter and his assistants were great! We love polaroid photography (the real stuff, not the Fuji instax stuff) and he was able to accommodate us and took some wonderful Polaroids that we'll treasure forever. Our photos, taken the traditional way, were absolutely stunning and definitely captured the feeling of the day. In addition to quality work, his rates are reasonable. So many photographers these days ask for such exorbitant amounts- a grand or more for photos? C'mon! All in all, Peter provided great work at a great price. I would definitely recommend him.

Thanks Peter for photos. xoxo

Peter is one of the most professional and artistic photographers I have had the pleasure of doing business with. He captured my wedding on August 6, 2014, and amazingly captured every intimate and special moment throughout that special day. I am extremely satisfied with the work and care he put into shooting my wedding day, as well as the time he took to meet with us before hand and go over the wedding day and how his team would be shooting the wedding. He made us feel comfortable with him and he did a great job getting the job done. He is worth every dollar and is extremely easy to get along with. Thanks again Peter!

Peter is a visionary and captures true emotion in his images. He took the time to listen to our ideas and asked the right questions until he fully understood what it was that my husband and I had in mind for our wedding photos on the shores of beautiful Ocean City, MD. I was particularly impressed with his level of preparation and attention to detail. He offered great suggestions and even encouraged us to consider doing a sunrise photoshoot. I'm so glad we decided to listen to his advice and go with the early morning session. The light of the sunrise and colors of the early morning sky in our wedding photos are truly remarkable. It's his ability to capture details like these that make Peter stand apart from other photographers. We look forward to working with him again for anniversary photoshoots in the future!

We had peter take our family pictures in the fall. He was very detailed and did a great job in helping out with the ideas and color coordination. He arrived on time and was amazing and patient with the kids. The pictures came out brilliant!! We will be using his services in the future as well....extremely wonderful experience!

We have found a gem in Peter! He's creative, patient, great with our son, and extremely honest. I literally am making up reasons to use his excellent services again! The pictures were delivered quickly and absolutely stunning!!!

It was pleasure working with Peter. He is very professional and has lot of patience. He is not satisfied until he likes the picture. Thank you for taking beautiful pictures.
Erica · Married on 08/30/2014
Peter met with us and kept in contact before our wedding, so that there were no surprises or confusion the day of the wedding. His attention to detail and willingness to go above and beyond until he feels like he "has the shot" was wonderful. He offers affordable pricing and will make sure to capture your wedding photos the way you want them. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
