“When I was shopping around for photographers for my wedding I came across AK Photography. I loved the pictures on Alex’s website so I contacted him. He was able to work with my budget and his associate Aaron was my photographer for my special day. Aaron was absolutely amazing! He arrived right on time and took such beautiful pictures and captured every moment. He was so kind and I am so thankful. If you are getting married soon I highly suggest you choose AK Photography!” -Janelle

“Alex Kaplan and his team are wonderful to work with and the pictures and video are amazing. He was able to get the great shots of people simply having fun and those are the best ones! He made sure we got all of the shots we wanted. My husband and I decided to get the photo booth as well and that was a hit! Alex also provides a photo booth attendant to help guest with the scrapbook. Very professional and nice. Alex and his team really captured our special day.” – Keri

“Alex and his team provided photography and videography for our wedding this summer. Weddings can be very stressful, and our photographers made that part of our day absolutely stress free. They were very punctual and were ready to help us capture every special moment. We had a problem with where our first look pictures would take place, and the two photographers and videographer all communicated and coordinated to make sure my future husband did not see me before it was time. They captured absolutely beautiful moments throughout the day, and we cannot thank them enough. And yes, all the reviews about them being the most affordable group are absolutely true! We were able to hire two photographers and a videographer and it was totally worth it. Stop looking for other wedding photographers and just email Alex. Thank you for everything, Alex and team!!” -Owen

“We found Alex Kaplan online through google search and different wedding websites. I did not receive a “word of mouth” recommendation but PLEASE consider this a “word of mouth” recommendation. Alex Kaplan and his team are AWESOME!!!
The important things I wanted in our wedding photographer were an awesome photo booth and photographers/videographers who were not annoying, overwhelming, in your face and rude (Like I’ve experienced at other weddings). Alex Kaplan’s team was none of those things and actually they were funny, fun, kind, understanding and nice!
The team working with us were Jackie, Tracy, Mo & Mike.
They came right on time and did not pressure us to do weird photos or make any of us feel uncomfortable. They were very understanding with me adding photos during the day/night (like wait! I need a photo with this cousin etc…)
We received our web album a little after 2 weeks after our wedding! This is very fast!
The Photo Lounge was PERFECT!! The props were awesome and everyone had so much fun in the lounge. I love that they provide a book with all the photos of the guests and a message from those who chose to write.
I feel like this review does not give justice to the experience we had with Alex Kaplan and his team. Since the first time that we Skyped, Alex made us feel comfortable. He was always very prompt at responded no matter what time of the day it was. We are overwhelmingly satisfied with how the day went and with the results of the photographs!” -Catherine

“What I like in a photographer is the ability to be there, but not be noticed. Our photographers from Alex Kaplan Photography arrived early and introduced themselves. They were present when they needed to be and faded into the background when the time came.

The quality of the photos are also fantastic! My mom, still nearly a month after the wedding, still calls me to say how much she loves then and is preparing to buy basically all of them as prints.

A+, highly recommended.” -Jennifer

“On the list of things to worry about for you wedding, photography is definatley one of them. However, hiring Alex and his team will erase it from the list.

Throughout the process, Alex and his team were more than accomodating and made everything pre-, during and post- wedding very simple and professional. The work of his team was fantastic and I highly reccomend hiring Alex for your affair.” -Josh

“We used Alex Kaplan for videography for our wedding, and were very happy! Alex was able to give us a good deal for what we were looking for, and was very flexible. I’m so glad we decided to have a videographer, nothing captures the day like it!” – Dana
