Olde Mill Inn Wedding

“I don’t know where to start. I stumbled upon Idalia Photography through one of my friends from high school who was getting married. We loved their engagement photos so much, we ended up seeing venues based on photos we had seen of Idalia’s. Once we booked our venue and date, the first and most important vendor to book (to us, at least) was our photographer. We spoke to a few photographers, but I knew I had wanted Idalia to capture our day from the beginning. Throughout the entire stressful wedding planning process, Alex made everything so easy for us. She recommended vendors to us, she answered any of my random wedding questions, and she even created a day-of schedule that everyone, including our parents, followed. The day of our wedding, Alex and Jay were amazing. They kept us on schedule, made it fun and relaxing, and captured our wedding beautifully. Within days, we were able to view 100 of their favorite pictures and relive our wedding day on our mini-moon. We even had some rain on our wedding day, but you couldn’t tell because Alex and Jay took the most beautiful pictures. I could honestly keep going all day about how great our wedding photographer was! We would highly recommend Alex and Jay to any future brides looking for an amazing photographer as well as an amazing couple to capture their special day.”

“Finding a photographer that I loved was high up on my priority list when it came to wedding planning. Beautiful wedding pictures are something that you will always have to look back on all the wonderful memories you created on the day that you said *I Do*! What my husband and I received by booking Idalia Photography was more than we could have hoped for! I consider us very lucky for finding Alex and Jay and that they were available! They are so professional and talented. From our engagement shoot, to the wedding, to receiving a preview within a couple weeks and getting to see all of the incredible images…. we are beyond grateful and soooo happy! We will have these special images for the rest of lives and look forward to one day sharing them with our future children! We wish you the best, Alex and Jay! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. For all the brides and grooms to be, if this team is available, don’t waste any time in booking them! We are so very happy that we did! They did a phenomenal job!”

Lake Mohawk Country Club Wedding

“I truly cannot say enough good things about Alex and Jay. From the moment we met them, we knew they were the perfect photographers for us. Our engagement session was so much fun and exactly the style we were hoping for. Our wedding photos – don’t get me started on our wedding photos!! THEY ARE PERFECTION! Our album is absolutely gorgeous and they made the entire ordering process so easy. On top of that, they’re just genuinely really good people who love what they do and it clearly shows in their work. I will always always always recommend Idalia Photography from now on! Simply the best!”

“In LOVE with our wedding photos! Alex and Jay perfectly captured the romantic, whimsical vibe to our garden-themed wedding! I had done so much research on photographers and I am so glad it landed me with Idalia Photography! Alex beautifully captured our winter wonderland engagement shoot too! They are so easy to work with from booking to the wedding day and after, everything has felt so organized and smooth. Thank you guys! Your work speaks for itself!”

“We knew from the moment we saw Idalia Photography’s website, that they would be the perfect Duo to capture our special day. Their style if very elegant, light and romantic.. exactly what we were looking for. Everything went off without hitch, from beginning to end. We were first introduced during our engagement shoot, which gave us the opportunity to get to know Alex… and gave us the peace of mind that our wedding day was in good hands. Alex was willing to drive two hours from her home for the photo shoot without hesitation. Not to mention, the photos came out amazing. Afterwards, Alex maintained communication with us throughout the planning process, sending us very organized checklists, etc to make sure we were on the same page for the wedding day. It was great to not have to worry about this aspect of our wedding day. The photography at the wedding itself went very well. My husband loved spending the morning with Jay (Alex’s husband) and mentioned how funny he was during the process. Alex spent the morning with me and the girls who all enjoyed her presence as well. Thank you Alex and Jay for helping make our day perfect!!”

“We were recommended to Alex and Jay by friends of ours and right away we could see why… They are so professional, organized, and most of all extremely talented! Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and felt so comfortable throughout the experience from the engagement photos to the wedding night photos. We had the best experience possible with Idalia and are confident you will too!!”

Erin and Tim

Grand Marquis wedding

“Everyone loved our wedding photos! Idalia Photography was amazing to work with! We found them on Instagram and KNEW that we needed to hire them! I fell in love with all of their photos and their style. Their style is light, airy, and romantic. They really get “in the moment” photos that are beautiful. They are a husband-wife team and they work so well together! They were extremely professional and always there if we had any questions leading up to the big day and on our wedding day. Not only are they extremely professional and fun to work with, they make a blog about your story (engagement and wedding photos) which is such a nice extra touch that a lot of other photographers do not do. Wedding photos last a lifetime, and we are so thankful that we hired Idalia to do ours! :)”

Park Chateau Estate and Gardens Wedding Photos

“Alex and Jay photographed our July 2018 wedding at the Park Chateau and we cannot be more pleased with the photos they captured! They are an amazing husband and wife team. We instantly clicked during our initial meeting and booked them that day. Alex suggested a complementary engagement shoot and it was a great idea! It allowed my now husband and I to get comfortable with Alex and her shooting style before the big day. We were nervous, as we are not the most photogenic couple. They made us look flawless, and captured every important moment. My family still cannot get over how beautiful all the pictures are! I highly recommend them to any couple who wants great wedding photography!”

Sara and Landon

Pleasantdale Chateau Wedding by Idalia Photography

“Most good photographers can capture wedding portraits (although probably not as beautiful as Idalia can!!!), but not all photographers can capture the emotion, the action, and the details of a wedding day. Idalia has a distinct, high quality style… Alex and Jay’s photos are light-filled and simply stated: BEAUTIFUL. One of the BEST decisions that we made for our June 2018 wedding was to book Alex and Jay. From the initial Skype interview, to our engagement shoot, to our wedding day, working with Idalia Photography was seamless and effortless. Alex was beyond friendly and professional and she was always available, flexible, and thorough every step of the way. On our wedding day, Alex and Jay worked seamlessly together and knew each other’s every next move… I guess that’s one benefit of a wife and husband team! They blended into the background most of the time, but also stepped up to give direction for certain shots and helped us to stay within our schedule. Both Alex and Jay worked smoothly with our other vendors (if there were any issues- we didn’t know about them!). They worked outside through temperature in the 90s without complaint or hesitation… and did everything possible to get the “best shot”… including laughing off when I accidentally soaked Jay with my celebratory champagne spray (and still managed to capture the shot somehow!). From the details photos of our invitation/jewelry/flowers/venue to my flowing “veil shots” to our dance floor… every moment and emotion of our day was captured. We received about 100 “photographer’s favorites” pictures while on our honeymoon (not even one full week after our wedding day!) and we felt like we were re-living our big day all over again. We are SO beyond grateful to Alex and Jay for helping the memory of our wedding day live on through our many photos!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! If you are considering Idalia Photography for your wedding or any event- BOOK THEM- We’re so glad we did!”

“Alex and Jay from Idalia Photography were a dream come true for my (now) husband and I. We worked with them on both our engagement and wedding photos. They have a way of making you feel both comfortable and beautiful while taking your picture. Not only that, but Alex has an impeccable eye when it comes to capturing candid shots and the beautiful details that may have otherwise gone unseen. They are also very kind, funny, and charismatic. What I loved most about them is that they sincerely love what they do. Nothing felt like a chore, but rather – every shot felt like a magical moment. My entire family, all of my friends and my husband absolutely loved working with them. They are timely, professional, kind, thoughtful, and they go above and beyond to make the clients happy. They make the process of getting your photos so easy through an app on your phone, and the turnaround time was insanely fast. I just cannot say enough kind things about working with Alex and Jay from Idalia, and I would refer anyone I know (or don’t know) to them! It’s a smart choice – do yourself the favor! You will not be disappointed!”

“Alex and Jay are simply AMAZING! They were with us every step of the way! From engagement photos, to planning family portraits and taking the most amazing bright and classic photos I’ve ever seen! They truly took care of us! They helped us create a time line for the day and just totally made our wedding even more amazing because they are so nice and fun to be around! Checking out the awesome blog Alex’s runs is a MUST! Once I checked it out, I HAD to have Alex and Jay capture our wedding day!”

“Alex + Jay are AMAZING! From the first time I contacted Alex, to working with them on our wedding day, all the way through to our wedding blog being posted less than a week after our big day. They made every step of choosing a wedding photographer so easy and enjoyable. And our pictures are STUNNING! There are no words to explain how great this husband and wife team is! My husband and I are recommending them to all of our newly engaged friends. You will not regret choosing Idalia Photography for your wedding. THANK YOU Alex + Jay for being so great since the day we met you! We will forever be grateful for your beautiful work.”
