Looking at photographs is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. They are moments captured forever, a photograph remembers the little things, long after we have forgotten everything. It is those real moments in life’s celebrations that draws me in and why I love what I do.

Jose is an amazing photographer with a unique ability to connect with and understand his clients
When wedding planning, one of our first priorities was finding a photographer with a unique style with whom we felt comfortable working with. Neither of us feel particularly comfortable behind a camera so it was important to us that we find someone who could still work with us and capture all of our moments. Jose is an incredible photographer, but you can see that from his portfolio. Just as important though, he takes time to understand you. From our first meeting, Jose made it his goal to understand what type of art resonates with us, both as a couple and individually. The product of his work reflects that understanding – Jose “got us” – and that, we both cannot stress enough, is so important when it comes to having someone photograph such an important day in your life. We would recommend Jose without reservation – If he’s available for your date, you’d being doing yourself a disservice not to reach out and have a conversation with him.
Jose was amazing!
A true, genuine soul with immense talent for capturing detail. His pictures tell a story.. they are works of art. I was looking for photographers and came across Jose. The picture I saw is what sealed the deal. My now husband knew on the spot that he was the photographer for us. Not only was he so nice at the time of booking, but in person, he was even more so.On our day, it rained and Jose braved that weather and captured the most spectacular photos that I am still in awe over them. If you are looking for a good hearted, talented photographer that will treat you like one of his friends; Jose is the one for you.
Jose was amazing!
His attention to detail and flexibility stood out to us from the beginning. He was quietly hidden and also everywhere throughout our entire day which made for some amazing photos we didn’t even know he was taking!
The last person to worry about on your big day!
I am not just writing this review because I should. I am writing this review because it is well deserved. Jose, let's face it, is amazing! He is punctual, professional and listens to exactly what your vision is and captures it times 10! Our joke about Jose was you wont see him during your wedding because hes too busy hiding in a bush to capture "the" moment. You wont just have regular posey pictures you will have your moments captured. Jose felt like he was apart of our family and he honestly was the last person I had to worry about on a day that could be so stressful. We highly recommend Jose not just as a photographer but an artist.
I live in California and planned my wedding from a distance, and I found Jose to be extremely responsive, organized and detailed. Planning an event without direct, local access to a venue or vendors can be difficult, but I had no issues at all communicating with Jose regarding my needs. I had two phone calls with Jose before the trip, first as an intro and then to go over a timeline and what to expect. This really helped me to organize my wedding day as well! When the big day came, I met Jose in person for the first time and he was very easy to work with and helped make a crazy day so much fun. I received SO many comments from family after the event (before the pictures even came out) about what a great experience they'd had, how impressed they were with the pace of the photos, and how much effort Jose had taken to get the shots. I can't recommend Jose enough - and I could go on about my experience, but I will let the pictures speak for themselves! Amazing work and such talent!
I have to say my now husband was resistant when it came to choosing a photographer as he is NOT a photo person, hates posing. When seeing family and friends photos and the poses they made during their wedding it made him even more skeptical. I came across Jose and I fell in love with his portfolio not only because of the artistic quality of his pictures but that he seemed to capture more moments rather than forcing poses, and that he did! Every aspect of my wedding was captured in his photos as candid shots, which we loved! My husband and I could not have more pleased with our photos and Jose in general. He took time to search around our venue to find the perfect place to take pictures of us allowing us to leave our reception for a short duration to capture individual photos and even the photos he did take of us posing were elegant, classy, and timeless.
We are so happy we chose Jose Almeida to be our photographer! From the moment we met him he made us feel like friends. From our engagement shoot to our wedding he was very professional but also flexible to work with us. I am someone who doesn’t like to be the center of attention especially in pictures and he made me and my husband feel at ease. We LOVE the way our pictures turned out and he really captured the entire feel of the wedding day and night. Your wedding day goes by so fast and you almost forget to take a second to look around and with these photos we’ll have those memories forever!
When we started looking for a photographer for our wedding we looked at a bunch of different websites to check out some of their work. We immediately fell in love with Jose’s style and knew he was the person we wanted to document our wedding day. Our phone conversations leading up to the big day were great. Jose made us feel very comfortable as we discussed all the details. We live in NC and our wedding was in PA so we met with him a few months before the wedding on location to go over timelines, shot locations, etc. He made sure that he knew exactly what pictures we wanted and what we were looking for. The day of the wedding Jose and his second photographer Jerry were everywhere capturing things we would never have even thought of. We even went offsite with our bridal party to take some shots. He kept us on schedule, and got some great shots that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. His photos are magical and we could not be more pleased with our decision to use him. If you are having your wedding in the Poconos/North East PA/NJ/NY area do yourself a favor and check out his work Jose, we cannot thank you enough!
Working with Jose was a wonderful from start to finish.
We used Jose for our engagement photos and our wedding photos. His prices are very fair and his turnaround was very fast! He is very down to earth and really made an effort to understand us and what we wanted out of our photos. It takes a lot to trust someone to shoot your big day, but Jose is worth of that trust.
