Engaging? Capture the moments? Full of color? Okay, so we figure we can go
ahead and tell you repeatedly about our story, package, and service OR we
can just let few of our clients to do the talking. That way you get to hear about their experiences and perhaps go back to our
gallery to hunt for
the rest of their pictures!
From Erin + Jim,
Liberty State Park engagement
We used Studio 1314 (Emily) for our engagement photo shoot. We had done quite a bit of research and looked at several different photographers. Emily's photos really stood out from the rest as they were so artistically done and just beautiful. We elected to go for the longer (4-hour) session and Emily helped us pick a location (Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ). It was perfect. Emily had really done her homework and suggested several areas of the park, which she thought would be great. We started out in the old train station, which provided a unique and interesting background. We then moved to the woods and fields of the park to forget we were only a mile away from New York City. Emily took us to a beautiful spot where there was one tree left with bright red leaves surrounded by trees with leafless branches (our shoot was in November). She and her assistant, Hao, worked with us to get some truly memorable shots (at one point, Hao stood off to the side and threw leaves in the air to get a fun fall scene). She even timed the setting of the sun so that it reflected off the NYC skyline in the background of some of our photos.
Emily made us feel at ease and encouraged us to be ourselves so she could capture the magic of our normal interactions. Her methods really worked - and we are not normally comfortable in front of a camera. All of the photos she gave us (over a hundred) were amazing. Our families and friends have absolutely raved about the shots (we are also huge fans, obviously). Even after the four hours of shooting and hundreds of photos, we decided that we also wanted a few "traditional" portraits to give to our older relatives and put in our local newspapers. Originally we had not asked Emily to do this, but we went back to see if she would be willing to do another 20 minute shoot with us to get a few portraits. Not only did she agree, but also she met us in a location near our apartment. In her words, "I want you to be completely satisfied with your photos". That was above and beyond all reasonable expectations, especially since we had not originally asked her to do any portraits!
All of the photos are perfect and, perhaps more importantly, our experience with Emily (and Hao) was thoroughly enjoyable. She is professional, timely, accommodating and a real pleasure to work with. We have sung her praises to all of our friends and, if the occasion presents itself, we will absolutely hire her again.
From Bonnie + Michael,
Venetian in Garfield wedding
We chose 1314 Studio Photography to shoot our wedding and we can not express how happy we are with our decision. From our 1st meeting, to our engagment photo shoot and all through our new year's eve wedding this past December 31, 2011, Emily was professional, patient, artistic, and just an absolute delight to work with. Hal her partner who we met on the day of the wedding was great also! Our engagement photos were beautiful and everyone that saw them loved them. Additionally numerous people in our wedding party commented on how much they loved our photographers and how good they were with organizing and getting the shots they wanted in a timely manner. If you want quality photos from quality photographers call 1314 studio photography to set up an appointment to look over a package that suits your needs. Best wishes from the newlyweds!
From Crisol + Kenny,
Choosing Studio1314 was a great investment in outstanding quality photography and service! I was initially captivated by their crisp, trendy and artistic online portfolio. From the moment I contacted them, they were responsive, attentive, and punctual all throughout. I especially like that the quality you see online is actually what you get. The quality of our photos were so excellent that there was really no need for later enhancements, touch-ups, etc. They're team has a fabulous artistic eye for capturing the right angle, set, and scenery. We are absolutely 'life-time clients' and we look forward to working with them again! P.S. My sincerest thanks Emily. I was so upset about our previous photographer and had a lack of faith but your work is phenomenal and I'm so glad we hired you! I'm glad you took up what you really wanted to do in life as opposed to being in the finance world because you're great at what you do! I wish you great success.
From Rochelle + Miodrag,
New York wedding
Through all the decisions we made during wedding planning, 1314 Studio was one of our best! Obviously, they are amazing photographers and you will end up with beautiful images. What you should also know is that Emily and Lawrence are incredibly pleasant and relaxing to be around. This is key because they will necessarily accompany you everywhere during your wedding day! The fact that they are accommodating and patient is extremely important considering that weddings can be stressful events in which various factors compete for the bride and groom's attention. We really didn't have to put much effort: they found the best settings, they caught the best natural lighting, they helped us find the right poses, and when they were taking more candid shots during the reception, we hardly even noticed their presence! In the end, we got the wedding photos we had hoped for, ones which truly convey how we want to remember our special day: happy!
From Kristine + Anthony,
Central Park engagement
Hi! How’s everything going? Me and Anthony would like to thank you again for shooting our engagement photos. You are really talented in what you do! Our family and friends who saw our photo were speechless and they really admired your shooting style. We are definitely recommending you to our friends who are going to get married in the future! J
Attached is our save-the-date invite that we wanted to share with you. Obviously, we used the photos that you shot of us! Thank you so much again & more power to you and the rest of the staff of 1314 studio!
From Divya + Arnab,
NJ Indian wedding
A walk down memory lane is never complete without pictures to reminisce over and of course someone to tell your stories to. Emily and Lawrence made that a possibility for us. In the years to come, whenever we open that Cardinal Red album we will be able to relive the day when we became one.
As you may have heard many times, your wedding will be a blur of emotions. I never realized how quickly the day flew by, and we were Mr. and Mrs. Emily and Lawrence captured every single moment for us to relive though. They captured the excitement and fear in Arnabs eyes when he climbed that horse. The tear rolling down my eyes when I saw Arnab for the first time in that hall full of people. (I don’t know if you want to include these details, or delete them) They captured each emotion that makes a wedding a marriage.
From Kranthi + Kamesh,
We did our engagement photography with Emily and we couldn't be happier with how the photos turned out. Emily was very professional and a delight to work with! She made the shoot a very memorable and pleasant experience.
We definitely missed her at our wedding in India. We talk about her so often - whenever we see our pics. Yes we did see the website and love all the pics she have put up there. All our friends love it as well.
From Brian + Geri, North Jersey wedding
I first have to tell you what an amazing job I think you and Lawrence did on our wedding day. Geri shared the pictures with me and I think they are just wonderful, both in style and substance. The lighting and the clarity are fantastic as are so many of the great candid moments you were able to capture.
From Cherisse + David,
Jersey City wedding
When my fiancé and I were interviewing photographers we were looking for someone who excels in the photojournalistic side of photography and someone who loves what they do. We met Emily and Lawrence and they definitely fit that description. They were also very professional and I really liked that. I had some specific ideas about what I wanted out of my photos and we spent a lot of time planning to make my wedding photo dreams come true. Of course, the weather didn’t cooperate but Emily and Lawrence had my back. During the last two weeks before my wedding I really didn’t have the time to re-plan my whole photo shoot knowing that the weather was looking bad. I trusted them to rework the shoot and they ended up taking pictures that I LOVE by understanding and knowing what I was looking for. Everyone at my wedding loved them and still talk about how awesome and sweet they were. The editing they did was phenomenal and it is important to note they are very technical and software savvy – A huge plus! I really liked working with 1314 Studio and will be coming back to them for pictures in the future even though we live in Florida. We highly recommend them for any event or shoot.
From Veronica + Adrian,
Hoboken W Hotel wedding
Our wedding was such a special day. We planned on having a small intimate affair, just family and close friends... planned in only 6 weeks! I searched online to find a photographer and came across 1314 Studio. I was immediately impressed with the website and being able to view photos of events they had done. The pictures were amazing and really captured the day and where not posed or phony.
I met with Emily at the venue and set our plans.
The day was perfect and filled with love. Emily and her staff were friendly, professional and captured everything we hoped for. Looking at my wedding photos now, they are so much more than pictures, I can recall every feeling and beautiful memory. Thank you to Emily and 1314 Studio for capturing all the special memories of a perfect day.
From Tiffany + Jonathan,
NYC Twenty Four Fifth wedding
Emily and Hao, Thank you for your hard work on our wedding day. The pictures came out beautiful and we continously get compliments from our friends and relatives. We look forward to recommending you to other engageed couples. Best of the luck in the new year! Love, Jonathan + Tiffany.
