Joseph is simply the best. I've worked with him on numerous weddings over the past several years. He is charming, engaging, very creative and his work is top-notch. I highly recommend him for your engagement, wedding and event photography. You'll love the results!

My wedding day was the fastest 12 hours of my life. Thanks to the superb professionalism, the creative approach, and the natural vibe of Joseph and his team I have the pleasure of reliving that day over and over again. Every moment was captured, and then some. The only "shot" missing was the one of my husband toasting our photographers! Quality and Professionalism was beyond expectation. Value is priceless, and the tangible goods delivered for the price is exceptional.

We were so happy to have Joseph Pessar Photographers as our photographers, they captured the essence of emotions and highlights of our special day through pictures. They are professional and pay attention to details no matter how big or small from start to finish. The quality of pictures taken are dramatic, eloquent and very beautiful as if they were out of a magazine. Joseph's personal touch, direction as well as photographic eye are priceless when it comes to setting up a shot that will total capture the moment. Working with Siv Pessar was a pleasure as well as added yet another dimension to our experience. Her tenacity to be creative on the spot aided in beautifying our pictures quality. To this day, when we look at our pictures, we can totally relive our event and say, Wow! We have also had great feedback from both family and friends alike on our pictures. The photographers make you feel very comfortable despite the stress of getting married. I,for one have never felt so beautiful and at ease. We truly enjoyed our experience with Joseph Pessar Photographers while embracing our special day and all that it had to offer at the same time. We are very blessed and pleased to have had Joseph Pessar Photographers at our event.

We are a couple from Vienna, Austria [Europe] who decided to get married in NYC in September 2010. While our entourage was rather small [8 pax, including us] and while we knew we didn't want anything too extravagant [except it happening in New York], it was definitely clear to us that one thing needed to be special and extraordinary - the photographs. After all, that's about the best memorizing "tool" that you'll have in years and decades to come when you think back about your wedding. While organizing everything from Europe, the choice of photographer would ultimately be done through Google, and that's how we came across Joseph Pessar. While we immediately loved his work that's published around the net, the question of his schedule and our budget was still kind of open. Luckily for us, none of these were a deal-breaker, as Joseph and us ultimately agreed on a very fair price as well as shooting time. We got married in Central Park [Ladies Pavilion], Joseph met us at our apartment in order to do some pre-ceremony shoot, which was kinda cool, as he was able to catch us in both coolness as in anxiety before the big moment. The ceremony went very smoothly, Joseph definitely caught the best moments, but it was the post-ceremony shoot that we were really looking forward to. We asked and agreed to have a post-ceremony shooting in some rather "unusual" locations in NYC, not showing the typical NY, rather "dirty, cheap & punk rock" so we asked Joseph to suggest and choose the spots where we - though dressed elegantly - would come off totally "married" but at a lousy corner where you wouldn't wanna hang at unless you lived there ;-) While NYC & Manhattan - in the meantime - probably don't have the reputation that it used to have in the 70s & 80s, the Meatpacking district definitely provided what we were looking for. And Joseph, having lived there years ago, definitely knew what spots, corners & locations would make this a totally rock n roll shoot. As far as the actual shooting goes, we've never seen [and we did have some on and off experiences with photographers] such a dedicated photographer as Joseph. He is and was able to switch from "everyday wedding" to something rather unusual, he was leading us during the shoot in the way that we'd experiment and try to be as outgoing but still stay comfortable in our skins. While knowing the neighborhood, we could see and relate to Joseph's ideas on the spot, as he was getting new ones every 5 yards we walked, so we definitely got ourselves such a diverse and extraordinary shoot and pictures that we're still being envied for such a great experience and photographs. And while we were a bit worried regarding the scheduled time [we were running late in all segments with the wedding, ceremony, the dinner afterwords etc.], Joseph kept cool at all times and never gave us the feeling of "X-hours and not a minute longer", which was totally fantastic and definitely helped us ease down. Our entire shoot lasted about 4,5hrs, and we got some 350-400 wonderful pictures out of it. Joseph was able to provide us a sneak-peek at the pictures the same evening [great service!]. We received the DVD with the entire collection some 3 weeks later by mail, as agreed, which was totally fine, knowing that a couple of friends had to wait a couple of months for their pictures by other photographers. A day or two after the wedding we met Joseph and his wonderful wife Siw on a social occasion and we can definitely say that we've become friends during this one of a kind experience. Great guys! Ultimately, if you're looking for an extraordinary and unforgettable experience taken in pictures, we definitely recommend Joseph. His uniqueness through the lens definitely made the happiest day of our lives even more happier.

Has an amazing amazing eye and is extremely good at controlling the wedding day's events and taking responsibility for making sure people are where they need to be so he can get the pictures that the bride and groom want. Highly highly highly recommend.

Hi, Joseph. We am so excited! Excited to hear from you and to see some pictures from our wedding day. We absolutely love the pictures you posted on your website blog! I can only say one word to capture the emotion Jeff & I feel when we look at the photos - WOW! As I stated to you when I first wrote you regarding your website and the pictures of events you were involved with, you truly capture the emotions of a special day. We cannot wait to see the rest of the photos from the wedding. We are happy that you & your wife had a great time at the wedding. We wanted all whom were present (family, friends, photographers, band members as well as venue staff) to share in the experience and emotions of our special day. Joseph, you and your family as far as we are concerned you are family now.
