Introduction: I absolutely love my crazy couples! We enjoy an easy, collaborative, comfortable photography experience while seamlessly shooting creative, real, natural photos. You want your story told with meaningful, emotional, gorgeous images while avoiding the stress of over-posing, rushing and forced smiles! Friends don’t let friends take terrible photos!! When I was 13 I was drawing a lot and dreamed of being an animator. I struggled with characters and ideas. My mom saw the need to create and handed me her Olympus OM 10. I was immediately hooked. Having a camera became like having my wallet...or pants. I needed it, It was part of getting dressed and going out. I am almost 40 now and I still feel the same way. For years I shot street photography and fine art stuff while I travelled and grew and developed my style. 6 years ago I met my now wife. She was pivotal in my transition to Wedding Photography. She pushed me to pursue it as a career, as a form of stability for my new, growing family. I now have over a hundred weddings under my belt, with tons of engagements, proposals, events and portraiture to boot. My style comes from my artsy, street background (documentary/photojournalistic) and is mixed with my personality (fun, colorful, relaxed, personable) I love shooting people. I love shooting events. I REALLY love shooting weddings. There is nothing in the world like meeting strangers, getting the privilege and joy of being a part of something so special and meaningful, having the best time ever, and going from strangers to friends!

What a great photographer!! Can’t say enough good things about Joe. He came on time, was very responsive during the entire process, and took some of the best pictures I’ve ever seen. We hired him to shoot my son’s bar mitzvah ceremony, which was rescheduled due to Covid-19. Joe came with a mask and took amazing candid shots (he took some posed photos too). We really enjoyed his company. He sent me all my photos in a link within 24 hours. Highly recommend.

We hired Joe for both our engagement and wedding photos, and we enjoyed every part of the process! He's flexible, responsive, and fun. We're not really photo-people and we haven't done many photoshoots in our life before, but Joe made us comfortable throughout the process and made sure we had fun while doing it. We had a small, short wedding and he made sure to give us time with our friends and family, capturing many candid photos in the moment, and only pulling us aside briefly to capture some gorgeous pics. He then edited and returned our photos extremely quickly! He'll give us a few great teasers the day after the shoot, and then he'll provide us with the rest of the photos in installments so that we never feel like we're waiting too long. We loved working with him, and we'll recomend him to any friends looking for a photographer in NYC!

Joey is a fantastic photographer! He photographed our wedding and could not have been more responsive or flexible. He is enthusiastic, creative, and truly loves taking pictures. Joey also delivered all of our edited images ahead of schedule. We could not have asked for a better experience!

Wow! We were so lucky to book this typically already booked up photography company (They has more wiggle room bc of Covid). We originally just wanted a couple of good shots of our wedding, but Joe Curry Photograohy really brought their A game, and now we have a gorgeous collection of emotional, artistic, high quality photos...it was really beyond anything we expected. They were fabulous about wearing masks and social distancing. It was also so cold that day, but the Joe and his team made the day so much fun, we really just had a blast. They’re the kind of people youd want to hang out with later. Thanks again guys for making our special day so much more special!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    On Thumbtack I typically charge a flat rate unless Packages are requested. I try and work with my clients budget. I can always build custom packages. I know whats it like to want a photographer to capture something special but not want to have to break the bank. I charge a 25% deposit and I ask for the balance at the wrap of our shoot. I have a basic Photography Contract to protect both you and I. I am also willing to change things based on what you need. I am very open to working with my clients based on your needs!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    You are most likely doing a lot of planning, or maybe you have never hired a photographer before. Whatever the case may be, I want to make this part of your process as easy as possible for you. The first thing I want to do is have a quick chat and discuss what you need and what I can offer. After this we take it step by easy step. I take the photography out of your hands and put it safely and confidently in mine.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    6 years ago my then girlfriend, now wife, gave me the support and courage to take my hobby to the next level. While I don't have formal training, I DO have TALENT, PASSION & DEDICATION. I think my work speaks for itself. Not to mention I truly love what I do!
