    Daniel took the photographs for my wedding ceremony.

    Daniel did an absolutely fantastic job. During the ceremony, he took some breathtakingly beautiful shots that captured candid moments between me and my groom and also with our guests. The shots are so well framed they look staged, even though they were completely natural. He was also unobtrusive and didn't impede anyone's view of the ceremony, which was really important to me.

    After the ceremony Daniel worked with us and out families to take some stunning shots. They are crisp and clear and the colours are extraordinary - we married in a garden and Daniel's photographs captured the relaxed, outdoors feel of our wedding. Daniel also took time and care to make sure everything was perfect before the shots were taken - from my hair to the placement of our hands, and even the way we are gazing at each other. I've only seen a small sample of our shots so far but what I have seen took my breath away. I can't wait to see more!

    I just had this awesome husband/wife team shoot my Wedding at the 76 House this past weekend, and I couldn't be happier! They were extremely professional, punctual, and creative! My husband and I are totally clueless on posing, and they were able to position us, and come up with some great ideas. They totally put as at ease. Everyone at my wedding thought they were great, and I will recommend them to anyone in need of photography for their event. I can't wait to see what the pictures look like!

    Love this husband and wife team! They arrived early to the shoot and were very creative with the wedding shots, which is what I wanted!! They had the perfect mix between classical shots and trendy shots. They were very friendly, professional and courteous and didn't make any discruptions during the ceremony or the reception. They were able to make us feel comfortable behind the camera and eased many of my worries about the pictures. Many of my guest complemented me on them and asked for their information for future events. They are wonderful and I would highly recommend them to anyone!!

    We hired Daniel Portalatin to photograph our quaint wedding at a Brooklyn restaurant and were beyond satisfied with his level of professionalism, eagerness to capture our special day and positive nature. He came to the venue early, quickly set up and went to work. Prior to the event, Daniel stayed in constant contact, even accepting a list of "must-have" shots from us.
    One of the things that impressed us was that he needed little to no direction during our wedding. We were very much overwhelmed and preoccupied with the wedding but Daniel was always nearby taking pictures, capturing important moments and coordinating shots that we may have overlooked or not even thought of.
    I would highly recommend for your next event. You will not be disappointed!!

    I have been looking through the pictures that you took at my wedding. I cannot express to you my emotions when I look at these photos. I feel as if those moments will always be with us and the memories have been somehow captured. Thank you for sharing your gift. I know I will always have these pictures with me.

    I want to also thank you so much for coming to central NJ to capture the highlight of my Wedding. I am SO pleased with the photos! Everyone who has seen them think that they are fabulous. You are truly a gifted photographer and my husband and I feel so lucky that our path's in life crossed and you were able to capture the happiest days of our lives.

    Your passion for photography is overwhelming, as is your talent!!

    excellent, he really listened to what I wanted and made taking the pics fun I will be recommending him

    Words can’t describe how wonderful Daniel and Liz are! As a husband and wife team, they were able to capture all of the special and intimate moments of our wedding down to the smallest detail. They were very professional, sweet, courteous and friendly and guided us through the entire picture taking process by showing us various poses and making sure everyone’s clothes and hair were styled properly. I also loved the portrait shoot they set up in the back, with an amazing background, to capture fun and memorable pictures of our guest. They are absolutely great and would recommend them for any event. They have easily become our family photographers and we will be using them for many more events in the future.

    I hired Daniel Portalatin for our intimate spring wedding. It was very nice to see that he and his assistant were there 30 mins. before the ceremony had started. He was very friendly and courtious with us and all of our relatives. We loved the fact that he was willing and ready for all the craziness that my family asked of him. He was a pleasure to work with along with his assistant. We are so excited about the final results that we can't wait to see the final edited pictures. I am sure that we will treasure them for years to come.

    Daniel was great to work with. He arrived promptly at my wedding site (which was probably at least one hour away) and was very friendly, professional and easy to work with. Every time we said, oh can you take a picture of my 2 nieces, or oh, can you take a picture of me and my best friend, or any request, he did it right away. He took table pictures which are always important so you can always have great memories of who was at your wedding. He was so easygoing that he put me at ease, even at the beginning when there are so many pictures to take and you want to make sure you get everything in. I will get the pictures in about 4 weeks and I can post again then. But I do highly recommend him. Susan

    My fiancee and I hired Daniel to photograph our engagement party. I did not have to ask for anything to be done he was right there capturing every moment whether it was action shots on the dance floor, or a laugh between a friend or relative. His work is outstanding!!!! I highly recommend him!!!

    This photographer, by far, way exceeded our expectations. My husband and I were so pleased with his perfectionism as well as his professionalism. He was on time, spent lots of time capturing one of the most important days of our life, very reasonable in price, unique poses, very friendly and down to earth and is truly the BEST of the BEST. I hope to do more work with him in the future. Thank you Daniel for everything you did to capture each moment of our special day.
