NYC Wedding Photography by NYC Wedding Photographer Joseph Delgado Photography

I am an award winning Wedding Photographer specializing documentary and fine art Wedding photography. My approach to the wedding day is very photojournalistic with a touch of editorial fine art imagery.

Your wedding day is a once in lifetime experience. One that needs to be captured with lots of energy and a amazing sense of creativity. I consider every one of my couples my own personal art project as I try to create something unique each time. On that note, I like to make my couples feel very comfortable around my staff and I and just have a few laughs throughout the day! This always brings out the best expressions that make for a great photography, not to mention a fantastic overall experience!

Ultimately my ultimate goal is photographing happiness. Whether it’s capturing the look of sheer bliss on a bride’s face during the first dance, or the pure innocence of a child during a family session. Creating photographs which are unique and creative is what drives me. I take great pleasure in the happiness I can give to my clients when they see the results of my work. To me that’s the most satisfying aspect of being a NYC wedding photographer and family photographer. I strive to make sure my clients are always ecstatic with their images and most importantly, with their overall experience with this photographer, a photographer in NYC. :) I am currently servicing alll of New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and I am also available for destination weddings all around the world.

Wedding Photography Information

NYC wedding photographer Joseph Delgado Photography LLC offers New York City brides the very best in NYC wedding photography. Are you getting married in New York City, New Jersey or Pennsylvalnia? Who will be your wedding photographer? Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a NYC wedding photographer.


When selecting an NYC wedding photographer you are picking more than just a photographer for your wedding. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your friends all day on your wedding day. Your photographer's personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way. Your wedding photographer's personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can influence your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your NYC wedding photographer for a year, or even longer in some cases. When you factor in your engagement session all the way to the album creation process, it can and will be a long lasting relationship.

Customized Boutique Experience

I believe it's important for your modern wedding photographer to pay special attention to your vision and collaborate with your on your day. The experience we offer as NYC Wedding Photographers is exactly that. We treat every couple like individual art assignments. The end result becomes something truly unique. Fine art wedding imagery specific to your wedding day and style. Our documentary approach also assures we capture those special little moments that will fly by your special day.

A Real Wedding Portfolio

Many times you will find the portfolios of New York City Wedding Photographer filled with photos taken during a styled photoshoot or a workshop. While the images may have been photographed by those wedding photographers, it is NOT a representation of the work produced during an actual wedding day. It's substatially easier to create beautiful images with professional models under stress free and controlled environments. Every photograph you'll see on our wedding portfolio has been taken with real bride and grooms during an actual wedding day. This is something I am very proud of and feel strongly about. When choosing your NYC wedding photographer,please make sure their portfolio images are in fact from real weddings and not over the top photo shoots.


While price is always a factor when selecting your New York City wedding photographer, it shouldn’t be the only deciding factor. Very often we hear the horror stories from couples who made a decision for their wedding photography based primarily on price. It turns out to be unwise in the end. At the end of the day, your wedding day imagery will be all that's left.

Wedding Books

What will you do with all your photographs from your wedding photographer? Most couples decide to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your NYC wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importantce of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your very first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your wedding. When selecting a NYC wedding photographer you should look for an album that best fits you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your New York City wedding photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What leather options are available for my wedding album? 4) Do you provide matted albums?

Coverage Time

Something often overlooked when selecting a NYC modern wedding photographer is the amount of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your New York City wedding. Typically you'll want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all those little moments of your wedding day. After all, isn’t that the reason you are hiring them? That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours. Be careful here. Some NYC wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.

Who will Be Photographing your Wedding?

The wedding photography industry is loaded with many larger and corporate style studios that show excellent images on their portfolio that may have been taken by the original photographer. This original photographer is, in many occations, not photographing weddings any longer since they deal with a much higher volume of weddings. Instead these studios rely on lower quality photographers willing to work for chump change. At Joseph Delgado Photography, every single wedding is photographed by myself, Joseph Delgado. I am the primary wedding photographer for every single wedding. It is critical that every bride and groom know exactly who their NYC Wedding Photographer will be on the most important day of their lives. We offer a boutique level of service like no other!

One or Two Photographers?

How many NYC wedding photographers will photograhing your wedding? Most weddings over 150 guests should have at least two NYC wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time. We find that by having two wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while safeguarding that nothing gets missed from your wedding day.

Same Sex Marriages

We am a full support of same sex marriages and I am excited to welcome them to the state of New Jersey! As same sex wedding photographers in New York City, I am excited for all of the new wonderful couples I will get to meet and photograph their special day. As modern wedding photographers in NYC, I am honored when a same sex couple trusts me to capture such a memorable day!

Professional Equipment

While the gear we use is not the reason our photos look fantastic, there are extremely important aspects of professional grade camera bodies and lenses that are critical to wedding photography. When narrrowing down your selection of New York City Wedding Photographer , find out if your photographer has "prosumer" camera bodies or professional. True professional grade camera bodies have dual media card slots. I cannot stress how important this is. The media cards to which your precious wedding photographs are written to can easily become corrupt or even worse, lost/stolen. By having an New York City Wedding Photographer who shoots with professional grade gear, there will always be an instant backup of your images. Now another aspect of high end gear is the quality of the imagery. If you like images with those dreamy blurry backgrounds, well I can tell you this is done strictly with high end professional grade lenses and not in photoshop. Here at Joseph Delgado Photograpy, we photograph every wedding with Nikon professional equipment. Nikon D4S and Nikon D750 bodies to be exact, along with a masstive collection of Nikon professional lenses and lighting setups.
