Wow. I wanted a semi-candid (not in a studio) photo shoot, so I hired Marcel based on a web search. (Me: MBA, Corporate America guy, etc. so I know what is good and what is just so-so.) Wow is all I can say. The hight quality of his work, the incredible portraits and photographs, his flexible schedule and *extremely* reasonable rates are absolutely the best thing tins sliced bread. We did some semi-candids in one location, and then Marcel offered to do some more in another location so I had a nice selection to choose from (he sends you a link to download all the photos, as well as a link to print some if you want). He is incredibly professional and, for those in the know, a young Annie Leibovitz. He has incredible talent. If I could give him 10 stars I would. Just check out his website and you can see some of his work. http://www.celsphotography.com I was not paid to write this review, nor did I know Marcel before I met him today. The whole photo session was completed in 30 minutes, though he offered more time I need to go to a meeting. HIGHLY recommend, with the highest level of professionalism you can get... (and frankly, he is inexpensive... sooner or later, he should raise prices).Nov 29, 2016Verified

What a great Party we had, and we can not say enough good things about Marcel!! I live in Los Angeles and was flying to NJ to have a 90th Birthday party for my Mother. If you are having an event in the NJ/NY area and need an amazing photographer, look no further, call Cel's Photography!! Marcel is very easy to work with and very personable!!May 5, 2016Verified
Wedding and Event Photography
Marcel recently photographed my twin daughter's Sweet 16 Isabella & Elisabeth on April 30th. He did an amazing job and captured our special day to perfection. Throughout the whole process he was patient and understanding to my needs. His friendly and professional attitude really helped the girls and their friends loosen up so that he was able to take great pictures. Not only did he take pictures at the venue but was accommodating and met me and my family at a nearby park and captured once again amazing pictures that I can and will cherish forever. I definitely look forward to working with him again and will be recommending him to my family and friends.May 16, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a basic price standard for Headshots. However, when it comes to Event Photography my company primarily charges by the hour, however I have also customized packages to meet my clients financial needs. In regards to weddings I have 3 packages. However, I have customized these packages for previous clients in efforts to try and meet their budget requirements..
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I prefer to meet with my clients personally for all consultations, however, for those that would like to discuss their photography needs over the phone I would be more than happy to accommodate. It's my business to meet your expectations and understand what exactly your looking to achieve. During a consultation we would discuss what the experience would entail from the clients point of view, some professional suggestions that I may have, location, timelines and fees.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have practiced photography for over 10 years and have studied under world class reputable photographers. In addition to paid instruction via NY Photography courses, I have attended several seminars, webinars and conferences keeping up to date with today's best equipment and technology.
