    Waterfront engagement shoot

    We had the most wonderful time with Todd shooting our engagement photos on the Hudson River. He brought so much creativity and put so much effort into making it a fun, relaxed experience for us. Todd went above and beyond for us and we will cherish our photos forever. We are so happy to be working with his company for our upcoming wedding and would highly recommend him!

    Day was captured magically

    Todd did a shoot for our wedding at Tarrytown Castle. We met with him in person, months before the event, and he got our vibe. His work as a journalist helped convey our story, and it showed in the pictures.
    We did the obligatory family shots (LOVE), and lots of candid moments. Looking at the pictures (QUICK TURNAROUND!), it was fun to see us how we are, just, at our wedding! Surprise shoot at the pool around dusk was a pop hit!
    He is punctual, works hard, and gives you something to share and experience again and again.
    Would not have wanted the night to go any other way.
    Thank you!

    Amazing Photographer

    Todd was eager to photograph our unique, non-traditional wedding. We were pleased with his flexibility and creative ideas. We would definitely recommend him to others!

    Professional and fun!

    Todd makes you feel like you’re having fun while caputuring the real you. And the outcome is unreal. When we saw our proofs we were blown away!

    Thank you Todd!

    Working with Todd for our wedding was an enjoyable experience from the beginning till the end. We chose to work with Todd not only because we found his work to be artistically beautiful, but also because of his kind and calming personality. We wanted to work with a photographer who could truly capture our personalities on our wedding day. Todd did just that- We felt extremely comfortable with him and were able to be completely ourselves in front of the camera. Thank you Todd!!

    Excellent experience

    We worked with Todd for two Bar Mitzvahs over the past two years. He was personable, professional, and we were thrilled with the results. He and his team captured the joy on everyone's faces and the fun that everyone was having at the party. They were a pleasure to work with.

    Fabulous job from Todd the Photographer!

    Todd is extremely professional! He is an expert in the field! The day of the wedding he captured all of the special moments. When receiving the album we were so happy with the quality of the pictures and the album and wonderful memories will last forever! We were happy with Todd's work from the day that we met him!

    Bat Mitzvah photography & pre-shoot as well as album prep

    Todd is not only an event photographer but a true artist. From the time I met him the 1st time and he showed me some of his photo journalist work as well as wedding & Bar & Bat Mitzvah work, I knew he was the one I wanted to hire. He has a calming yet professional presence and wants to satisfy his customers. There were so many niceties and so much attention to detail along the way. When I signed the contract to have him do my daughter’s (Bat Mitzvah) event, he gave me a pack of blank cards with beautiful photos from some of his travels. We planned the pre-shoot for a day in August as the Bat Mitzvah was in October 2018 and when it turned out to be an excruciatingly hot day, he was flexible and offered to pick another date. We stuck with the scheduled date and he made it work by doing the initial photos indoors and then moving outside after 5:00 once it had cooled down. On the day of the actual event, he was amazing! He was there for the family photos @ the temple early and then had his assistant stay towards the end to capture the actual service so he could set up @ the venue space. He took the most amazing photos of the Hora with a panoramic lens. He captured so many of the unscripted, candid moments by being unobtrusive. He delivered the proofs and the flash drive in a timely manner and everything was packaged beautifully. Later, he guided me through the album process and he helped me create the most beautifully tasteful album all without rushing me or being pushy. He is a true professional, extremely talented and a kind and creative soul too. I highly recommend Todd.

    We are so happy that we hired Todd Shapera for our September 2018 wedding. Todd was so fun to work with, he kept our whole wedding party smiling the entire time. Todd has a great eye for composing breathtaking and romantic shots. In addition, Todd captured so many fantastic candid moments throughout the day that I felt like I was reliving our wedding through the photos. We highly recommend Todd to anyone looking for an amazing photographer.

    Todd Shapera, and his phototography and videography crew, are beyond masterful, in every imaginable way possible! They are unobtrusive, respectful, courteous, efficient, and aim to get the storytelling job done right, the first, and only, time. A consummate professional in every way, we would definitely recommend Todd Shapera Photography without hesitation. He's the absolute ultimate, as well as a calming influence on an otherwise most hectic day in one's life! We contracted for a certain number of photos, and he delivered almost 3x that number.....amazing!!!

    Todd was amazing to work with. We met with him before the wedding and fell in love with his photos and storytelling take on photography, which was exactly what we wanted for our wedding - the photos to tell the story of the day. He was brilliant on the day of the wedding - especially when the weather was less than ideal (pouring all day!) - and he worked with the venue to arrange a way to still get all the shots that we wanted - we really wanted nature in the background and had been planning for an outdoor wedding. He captured everything so beautifully. We loved working with Todd and are SO happy with the photos from our wedding! I've included a few below as an example of his incredible work. We would highly recommend him.

    We are so glad we chose Todd as our wedding photographer. It has been over a month since our wedding, and we (and our guests!) can’t stop raving about how fantastic Todd was and how amazing all of our photos are! We are so grateful that a close family friend (who used Todd for both of her sons’ bar mitzvahs) recommended him to us. From when we first met with Todd, it was clear he would be easy to work with, and he absolutely was. Todd was very respectful and sensitive to our wishes and those of our family, and knew just the right time to suggest or not suggest an idea. We are so pleased with the beautiful and creative photo ideas he presented to us, which have turned out to be fantastic – several of which have won Todd international Wedawards for outstanding wedding photography! His talent and passion for what he does is evident as he seamlessly photographed our whole day, including running outside our Rolls Royce after our ceremony to capture a moment and suddenly climbing up on a ladder (on several occasions) in order to get the perfect impromptu shot (even late into dancing the night away). We and our family are so excited with how our wedding photos came out (and how quickly Todd returned them to us). We are forever grateful to Todd to have such special memories on film forever, and we are confident that anyone who hires Todd will surely feel it was one of the best decisions they make in planning their wedding or other special event!

    Todd flew to Nashville to photograph my son's wedding weekend in a picturesque, rural barn. We loved having him join us for the whole weekend as he documented the casual barbecue the night before the wedding, the wedding day, and a did a fun, day-after portrait shoot of the bridal couple at a favorite river/swimming hole (a trash-the-dress shoot, but beautiful). When nothing went as planned, partly because of excessive heat and an outdoor venue, we had to change the entire shooting schedule and Todd calmly went with the flow. He was able to adjust to all our needs while still capturing the beauty, love, and humor throughout the weekend. Todd is very talented and committed to making every wedding he shoots visually unique, and we are thrilled with his images!

    Todd photographed our daughters Bat Mitzvah and did an amazing job! He was so creative, professional and artistic. Our photos far surpassed our expectations and we have the most beautiful album to show our family and friends. Todd worked together with us to create our dream album and we are so proud to be able to display it in our house. I would highly recommend Todd Shapera. He is a rare find and a step above the rest!

    My husband and I absolutely adore Todd! From the very first stages of planning our wedding, Todd was extremely communicative, flexible, and responsive. Todd is clearly very passionate about what he does, and this came through both in his interaction with us and with the final product. My husband and I are so happy with our wedding photos, and could not have asked for a better photographer!!

    We had the fortune of coming across Todd's work about a year and half ago after we got engaged. Today a few weeks after the wedding going through our photos, we can't thank Todd enough. His professionalism, friendliness, kindness and commitment to his work comes second to none and I would absolutely recommend him.

    Todd Shapera photographed two weddings for my son and his bride – the trip on the New York subway to City Hall in June and the more traditional wedding and reception in Westchester three months later. Both times, Todd captured the story, the fun, and the joy. He is very sensitive to the wishes of the bride and groom – and the parents, too! Working with him is a pleasure and his photographs are gorgeous.
