“Joe was recommended to do our wedding photography by my brother-in-law who has known him for some time, and we are so glad that he was.
We had our initial meeting at his studio where we talked about what would be done and were shown some previous pictures that he had taken. From the start it was clear to see that it was not all about the money with Joe but he was passionate about photography which is the main reason that we chose to use him. We really wanted someone that cared about the job that he was doing and we certainly found that with Joe. He was very professional from the outset and always just a phone call or email away to answer any questions that we had. We were sent a planner for the big day to fill out with the schedule and a list of all the key shots that we wanted taken and had a final meeting a week before the wedding to talk through and finalise everything.
On the day itself Joe and his assistant arrived on time to get some shots of us getting ready before the ceremony and then headed off to the church to await the arrival of the bridal party. Once inside the church and with the ceremony started Joe and his assistant just blended into the background whilst still managing to capture some wonderful pictures, apart from the click of the camera we would not have even known they were there. Once back at the venue we started with our group pictures and working from the list we had given him, Joe worked swiftly through them to get what we wanted. While this was happening, and between calling people for shots, his assistant was wandering round taking some pictures of people chatting which were great as they are much more natural. As we wanted to keep them until our first dance we provided a meal for Joe and his assistant during which time they were both wandering through the tables again taking some more natural pictures of everyone whilst never imposing or getting in the way.
After the first dance was over Joe and his assistant stayed on to run a photo booth which he had suggested to us. This was great as he provided a box full of costumes and props for people to dress up with and have their pictures taken.
After the wedding the pictures were all uploaded to a website where guests could log in to view and order prints. This is also where we were able to choose the pictures that we wanted for our album and DVD before sending them off to be printed. We were able to attach notes to them for any alterations that we wanted made to the pictures before printing, these were done quickly and sent back to us for approval before going to print. The finished product was absolutely amazing and done to an extremely high standard
To sum up, the service we received from Joe was friendly, professional and far beyond what we had expected. And all that at a very competitive price too! Both he and his assistant worked tirelessly during our wedding to get as many pictures as they could and the best pictures possible, and even harder afterwards to get the album done. I will definitely be recommending Joseph Tufo Photography to anyone looking to have any sort of photography work done as they will not be disappointed with the quality, service or cost.”

I have been lucky enough to receive a glowing testimonial from one of my recent wedding clients and would love to share it with you below.
