Alex and Jackie were professional, courteous, and so accommodating! It was great to have a worry-free vendor, everything with Alex was easy and laid back. We even paid in advance in full (which my then finance was worried about) only to be beyond thrilled with the services we received. The pictures are beautiful, they captured moments that we didn’t even realize were happening and the angles and shots are far beyond expectations. Alex and Jackie even managed to work in a flock of wild turkeys that wandered by! The best thing was that most of the time we didn’t even realize we were being photographed, making our pictures candid and real. I completely recommend Alex Kaplan for any photography needs you may have!

Alex was great to work with! Actors are constantly depending on word of mouth for direction to get a quality professional headshot that accurately represents you. Alex was able to.provide that for me as well as making the session fun yet efficient. It was an overall pleasant experience and I would recommend him to a friend!

Alex Kaplan and his assistant Aaron did a fabulous job with our wedding photos. They took all of the planned photos we were hoping for and caught amazing candid moments that we will treasure forever. My wedding day was a hot, July day, and Alex was quick, thorough and professional as we took pictures in the heat. Our photos are beautiful and more importantly they capture the fun spirit of our wedding. We couldn’t recommend him more highly!

Alex and Crew made me (the bride) feel so comfortable and so beautiful on my wedding day! The pictures are excellent, and I can’t believe Alex and crew were in all of the right places at just the right times! And GET THE PHOTO BOOTH! The photo booth was a big hit with my guests and I have all of their photos to put in my guestbook! I think the best thing about Alex and his crew was that I felt like I could just be myself, enjoy my beautiful day and my wonderful new husband, and I could just trust that they would get the most wonderful pictures… And they DID!

I am so glad I went with Alex Kaplan! Throughout the planning process, we mostly corresponded by email and he was always prompt with his responses! He also worked with us and we were able to pay in three installments. He is very patient as well- I always had a million questions and he never seemed annoyed! The day of the wedding, Alex and his associates were right on time! We used his services for photography, videography and photobooth. They were so nice, professional, and creative! We received our online album within a couple of weeks and the pictures came out BEAUTIFUL! Everyone in my bridal party kept telling me how much fun they had taking the photos and how comfortable they felt. All of our guests had a great time with the photobooth as well! You definitely get your money’s worth and I strongly recommend Alex Kaplan!

My husband and I had originally signed up for photography through WeddingBug but after having reserved their services, we felt that some of their policies and their lack of any type of studio or concrete location was a little fishy. I was searching for negative reviews for WeddingBug to confirm our suspicions (there hadn’t been any when we had booked), and came across a review from a woman who needed an affordable photographer in the Tri-State Area. I called Alex in the early afternoon, and he spent a good 30-45 minutes speaking to me about what we were looking for and what our budget was. I was surprised by his willingness to work with our budget, as most photographers I had spoken with had no “wiggle room.” My hometown is in South Jersey, but I live in Texas, and was trying to plan across 1500 miles. Alex assured me that everything would be taken care of. When the big day arrived, he and his team arrived early and told me (as I was having my only bridal “freak-out” about my flowers arriving with spray on glitter) that one of the men with him was training to be a videographer and that we would be receiving a free wedding video. I told him that he had just made my flowers seem like much less of a big deal, and he hugged me and told me to go get ready. My whole family, including myself, are a bit camera shy, and I was apprehensive about having three men following me and my husband around. They were all delightful – very easy-going, polite, and thoughtful – in their behavior and in the way they captured special moments that we might have forgotten if they hadn’t taken a picture. They created posed pictures that instead of being stiff and formal, were actually some of our favorites and the most tender. The only “hiccup” we had was the shipping time for the DVDs of our photos, but there were some technical issues at the lab, and Alex was on location out of town, and we received the discs soon after we spoke with Alex about the issue. You would be absolutely OUT OF YOUR MIND not to hire Alex and his team. We had only one photographer – Alex – and our photographs were stunning.
