Fall Weddings are one my favorite next to spring which are also very fun for creative wedding photography. For more information and samples of my fall weddings you can visit my page here. Obviously a beautiful day. What else more could you ask for.  Not only was this a fall wedding but it also happened to be on Halloween day.  The decorations were fun and the staff at the Valenzano Winery were a pleasure. Another fantastic wedding venue where you wedding photos are sure to make a high impact in your home for years to come.

Quinceaneras are a special time in a young woman’s life and an important milestone for her and her family. As it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. I love being invited to participate. I know how much everyone is counting on me to capture the evenings emotion so they have something meaningful to look back on.  I never see events as simply another job. I feel a great deal of responsibility to deliver an experience. This experience is to last well beyond my time with the family.  My goal is to evoke the emotion felt this evening each time the photos we view them.  I hope you enjoy.

I also had the pleasure of spending a little time speaking with Joanna Malone the event planner at the CV Rich Mansion. She was very personable and easy to like.  Her staff seemed to enjoy her as well.  Joanna and I found out we both share a love of the Virgin Islands. I having lived there for many years and Joanna remembered visiting Magens Bay some time back and how it became her favorite beach in the world.  Natasha Felicies the event specialist was also there to greet me upon arrival and quickly got me up to speed before she was off assuring everything was perfect for the evening.

I can say with confidence that the CV Rich Mansion was a pleasure for this evenings event and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful venue for your Quinceanera or Sweet 16  in the White Plains area.

Seasons wedding was perfect

 Seasons Wedding on October 11th 2015

The wedding venue for the discerning bride

Jason Giordano Photography about the Seasons in Washington Township

Seasons is the venue for an amazing wedding experience. Located in the Township of Washington, NJ. By Jason Giordano Wedding Photography 973-619-5678

I can tell that I enjoyed everything about shooting one of my most recent weddings at the Season at 644 Pascack Road, Township of Washington, NJ 07676. Seasons is a first class venue that lives up its many 5 star reviews  found online. Both the bride and groom were well attended to by  a staff that were kind to my needs as well.  You can see clearly that everyone knew what to do at every turn. Weddings always have changes in plans often at the last-minute, it’s the professional that can flawlessly work through these  moments without notice. Seasons is the venue you’re looking for if you’re searching for a complete piece of mind that your needs are on the day of your wedding.

    So happy we found Jason Giordano !

  • My husband and I hired Jason as a photographer for our Wedding and we were very pleased with the results! The photographs are to die for and I have received so many compliments on them! I will definitely hire Jason for future events! Thank you for making our day so special and for being so cooperative! You are the best!

    One of the most important vendors hired for any special occasion, is of course the photographer. Someone who cares as much about
    capturing every special moment as you do. Jason is that guy.

    When I was searching through countless ads online and in magazines, I came across Jason Giordano Photography. I went to his website, like I did with many of them, only I was blown away by the examples of his work.

    I called immediately and left a message inquiring about his services and availability. He called me back that same day.

    He let me talk and explain what we were looking for as well as the day, the time and the locations we were hoping he would be able to
    travel to.

    Once we had established he was available, he asked me wonderful and thoughtful questions about me, my family, my future husband and my soon to be in-laws. There was no discussion, we hired him and I am so happy we did!

    He continued to stay in touch with us by phone and e-mail even though we were months from our big day. As our wedding day approached, Jason called me with the weather report. It looked like the weather was going to cooperate so we could utilize the beautiful grounds both at the church and at the reception site. As a side note: I would like to point out to everyone reading this review, when we first hired Jason, he was in the process of being a father for the first time. Even though he was preparing for the arrival of his new bundle of joy, he never missed a phone calls and he replied to every e-mail promptly. His son was born weeks before our wedding
    day. He was on time, never distracted, and beaming as a new father. He never missed a beat and clearly not a single amazing picture.

    Now about those pictures .did I mention they were amazing! Amazing! For example, the church wouldn’t allow flash photography
    in the church, I would have never known he didn’t use a flash if he hadn’t told
    me. And the picture outside were absolutely beautiful!

    To give you an idea of how amazing our wedding pictures are, it took us MONTHS and MONTHS to decide which pictures we wanted to order for our Thank You cards. The variety of choices; ie: different angles, different distances, different lighting, different poses, different backgrounds. SO many wonderful pictures! Now we need to decide on the photo albums!

    Thank you Jason for capturing the most important day of our lives. Thank So Very Very Much! We look forward to doing business with you again soon!.

    I think I blushed while reading this review this morning…

    Wow, I am a bit speechless. This is exactly the type of response I strive for from each and every client. Everyday I pour my heart into what I do. I am blessed to have found a passion. And a passion that has the opportunity to make a difference in some of the most important days in peoples lives.

    Thank you Traci it really means the world to me that you feel this way and would take the time to leave this review. Sincerely thank you.

    Jason was outstanding!!! He exceeded my expectations. He was such a professional. He took charge and my picture are already available! They are beautiful. We are so happy! It is with pleasure that I leave this review.

    We recently had an Oktoberfest/Wedding Reception in our backyard and had hired Jason to photograph the event. From the outset we were impressed with his professionalism and engaging personality. It was so nice to have a vendor as enthusiastic as we were about capturing the fun of the event! Many guests commented on how pleasant, patient and accommodating he was. Yesterday we viewed the pictures on-line and couldn’t be happier with the result. With nearly 100 guests and a lot of activity, it was wonderful to see Jason had somehow managed to include everyone in at least one shot. He also took special care to include artistic shots of all the decorations and games we had made ourselves clearly, he appreciated all the hard work and creativity that went into this event. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Jason for anyone’s photographic needs!

    We could not have been happier with the services Jason provided. I engaged him to take photos for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary gathering. The photo shoot included 6 grandchildren (one who did not like to sit still). Jason handled the situation like a true professional – he was engaging with the children, was thoughtful about the photos to be taken and was an all around pleasure to interact with. W could not have asked for me – I highly recommend him!

  • 5/5 stars May 6, 2014

    I was looking for someone to take professional photographs of my intimate wedding, and luckily I found Jason on Thumbtack. He met with me to discuss the details and expectations of my wedding, and he gave me an excellent quote to work within my budget. He is very, pleasant, professional, and eager to please his client. On my wedding day, he arrived early to my home, and he began snapping photos immediately in my home and in the backyard. He took a variety of pictures, and he travelled to all necessary venues within a 4 hour period. He was very professional, pleasant, and patient with us (Even during inevitable stressful family moments which can happen at times!)I highly recommend Jason to photograph your event. I will definitely call Jason again in the future.

  • 5/5 stars March 20, 2014

    Everything went better than I could have imagined. My parents were wedding photographers for 20 years while I was growing up so I know what an excellent photographer does. Jason was professional, patient, responsive, punctual. unobtrusive , relaxed, competent, personable and everything you might wish for. He made everyone relaxed for the formal shots and that is not easy with some our family
    The quality of the photos and the artistry is superb. He created many opportunities for lovely shots all around the venue!
    Jason was flexible and easy to work with at all stages of the process. Many of our guest commented very favorable about his professionalism and his photographs.

    Job was to photograph a 90th birthday event
    Jason was responsive, prompt and professional
    Would have been better to discuss the type of shots we wanted prior to event, he needed to take more shots of immediate family

  • 5/5 stars February 24, 2014

    Jason came to our home and took family portraits for us all around the outside area of our home.  I think that he was only supposed to spend about an hour with us, but I think that he ended up spending more like 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours with us. He was great! He was easy to talk with the on the phone and “do business” with. He was punctual the day of the appointment. We have 3 children, and so Jason really had his hands full with trying to capture pictures of all of us. He was warm, enthusiastic, positive, friendly, easy-going, and he made it very comfortable to have him take our pictures. Our kids had a lot of fun with him and were definitely comfortable with him. One thing that he did that I really appreciated was that he walked around our home and found all of these really great spots with beautiful backgrounds to take pictures of the kids in that I would never have thought of on my own. The quality of his pictures were also excellent. We got some really great family photos thanks to Jason. Most impressive and best of all was Jason’s turnaround time. I did not have to wait to long to see the pictures. Jason got all the pictures to me within a week!

    I had interviewed a few photographers before choosing Jason to capture my proposal to my girlfriend. From the start, I was impressed with Jason’s professionalism and attention to detail. We were to meet at the Observatory Deck at the Rockefeller Center and on that certain day, it was snowing and the view was horrible. Jason was able to reschedule for a different day and everything worked out perfect and my girlfriend was completely flabbergasted and amazed. I would recommend Jason to anyone needing a reliable, trustworthy, and overall amazing photographer. Our pictures came out AMAZING and I can’t thank Jason enough for capturing one of the best moments of my life.

  • 5/5 stars January 11, 2013

    My partner and I decided to get married in New York on December 14th, 2012. Weeks before we went to NYC (we are from Texas). I decided to look for a photographer in NY to help us on our big day. It was hard because as soon as I sent my request, I received many responses back from people. I thought “OMG what am I going to do? I don’t know none of these people.” So I started talking to people, and I talked Jason. Over the phone, he sounded very warm and genuine. I have worked in Customer Service for many years and I can read people’s voices and faces. Jason made me feel wanted and it was like he knew exactly what I was looking for. Don’t get me wrong, it took me three days to make up my mind, especially when I have to put a deposit down (you do this through PayPal, very secure). I decided to use Jason as my photographer for my BIG DAY. The BIG DAY came, and Jason was there on time, he was ready and helping us throughout the whole process (he was our witness too), he was incredible, taking shots of anything and everything. He was with us from the beginning until the end of our ceremony, and even after, he took great pictures of us outside, at the garden, and everywhere he knew it would look good. Making sure we were comfortable and making sure pictures were good. I can’t tell you how grateful I was to find Jason. He knows what he is doing and he created a piece of art. They weren’t pictures, it was art.
    I recommend Jason, eyes closed, and if you have any doubts, well just take a lot at his work. He is a professional and I guarantee you, he will go out his way to make your day the best day of your life.

    Jason is truly gifted! After seeing his work on his website, I knew he would be the perfect choice for the launch event for my novel, REDEMPTION, in March. The photos and video he provided after the event captured, not only memories and moments, but the energy and feel of the evening. The joy and excitement I felt, the fun had by those in attendance, and even the mood and theme of the novel was reflected in each photo. Guests and other participants each commented on his professionalism, creativity, and exceptional work. I plan on contacting Jason again when it’s time for the launch of my next novel.

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2012

    I am so glad that we found Jason! There are so many important events that come only once in a lifetime. I never hesitate to reach out to Jason when one of those events are on the horizon. His vision and work is excellent. He is also willing to accomodate my ideas as well. I recently went through and purchased 75 prints from multiple events over this past year. What can I say? He’s good!

    Danielle H.

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2012

    Inspirer. Encourager. Teacher. Three words I can use to adequately describe Jason. Seeing his photos and the way he can truely capture the beauty of a shot inspires me. He always takes the time to view my photos and lends many encouraging words. In my own photographic journey, Jason is there to guide me along and assist me whenever the need arises. I am so thankful for the beauty he gives to the world; in his photos and in his willingness to help others! (Now if he will only buy me that new camera he is ‘inspiring’ me to get!!! LOL) Thank you Jason!!!

  • 5/5 stars April 6, 2012

    Jason is an amazing artist capturing the beauty of the moments in such a natural way! He shot my 3 children outdoors as they played and got the most amazing and candid shots! Every time someone comes in my home, they want to know who took such amazing shots! Thanks jay! You captured my most precious jewels and gave me memories for life! You are amazing! Lisa D.

Great time with Catherine and Michael last week.  The church was St Henry’s in Bayonne NJ.  If you don’t know St Henry’s I would say it’s a must to consider when looking for a church ceremony.   Thanks again Catherine for having me. I will miss the weekly calls and fun chats.  Best to you both and as always call anytime!



Recent interview of Jason Giordano by Thumbtack

Elite Pro Award

• How did your business/company start, and what was the greatest challenge that you encountered along the way?

My business started as a fascination with photography at a very young age. I have enjoyed taking photos for as long as I can remember. I never considered the possibility of making a living as a photographer until I was approached by a well-known photographer in St. Thomas, who was impressed with the way I interacted with clients at the hotel I was working at during that time. He asked if I had an interest in photography and shortly after I was shooting weddings by his side. It wasn’t very long before I was booking weddings on my own. The biggest challenge for me was the realization that I was now not only a photographer but also an accountant, web designer, salesman, wedding director and a marketing expert. Taking photographs would consume a small fraction of my time with all the duties that come with running a business. Fortunately for me I love that aspect as well. If I didn’t it would be much easier to work for someone else and let him or her do all the legwork.

I would have to say the biggest challenge was relocating back to New Jersey and New York a few years ago. New York is the most competitive market in the world. I am happy to have had as much success as I have in such a short period of time. To have the ability to make a living as a photographer here is a great honor. Words can’t describe how happy I am doing what I love, where I love to be.

• How would you describe your usual clients in terms of status, needs, and level of satisfaction toward your services?

My clients vary greatly. Since relocating I have been very aggressive in my pricing in order to help get the business off the ground, reducing my rates by nearly half. Everyone that contacts me through Thumbtack has been getting the deal of a lifetime. I understand the value of word of mouth from each wedding I have the honor to shoot. I let the quality of my work speak for itself first, then work diligently to come up with a package that meets the clients’ need as well as the needs of my business. I rarely walk away from a potential client. I always try to match a competitor’s price. Sometimes I can, and others I can come close to. However, there are times when I will have to walk away.

These days, there are a lot of “weekend warriors” who have bought a nice camera and may know how to take a decent photo from time to time, so they assume they can make a few dollars on the side as a wedding photographer. There are many problems with this philosophy. Number one: they are probably doing this for the money first. This is a big red flag in my book. They are not paying the overhead it takes for me to get to the level of service I provide. There are a lot of costs that go into taking “a few photos” at a wedding in addition to experience that can only come from being a full time wedding and event photographer. If you have a budget, be honest and let me know. I will work with you. I understand there will always be someone willing to do it for less, but I can assure you if I am walking away you may really want to do your homework on the “photographer” you are considering. Go ahead and Google them. Ask yourself, are they a weekend warrior? Ask them. Do they have insurance? Are they an active member of the Professional Photographers of America? Can they provide recommendations? Are they willing to show you a full wedding that they’ve shot recently?

If you love my work I ask that you give me a chance to work with you to provide a package that satisfies your needs within your budget. I will strive for your five star ratings and complete satisfaction. No need to settle for less then amazing.

• What do you think is the most effective strategy to keep your customers happy and satisfied with your service?

Become friends. A good rapport is everything in this business. A great relationship will come through in the photos. I work hard to turn my clients into ambassadors for JGiordano Photography.

Stay in touch. I stay engaged at all times. I make myself available when called upon and answer all questions or concerns in a timely manner.

Going above and beyond. I have experience in event management and have assisted in setting up the venue when a group was running behind, even volunteering help in situations such as carrying in centerpieces from the car when seeing clients struggle. I do everything I can to help assure the clients’ success. I make that my business even before I’m hired. I let all potential customers know that even if they choose to go another direction, I am happy to assist should they have questions in any and all aspects of their event. If I don’t have the answer, I will find someone for them who does.

• What was your most favorite and successful project? 

The very first wedding I shot stands out as my favorite experience. I was able to physically hand over the prints to the couple and they started crying right in front of me. Nothing could have prepared me for that moment. I was floored. They were tears of joy and excitement. I had given them the ability to look back in time from a perspective neither had previously imagined. They both hugged me and thanked me profusely. It was that moment I knew what I would be doing for the rest of my life. Fortunately for me, I have been able to turn that passion into a living.

I have remained humbled by that experience and continue to strive for that level of satisfaction each and every event.

If you’re looking for high quality, professionalism, personality and exceptional service, you should consider JGiordano Photography.

Janet and Mohamed Wedding by Jason Giordano from Jason Giordano on Vimeo.


 Janet and Mohamed were married on April 13th, 2013. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. I can honestly say I have never felt more a part of the family of a couple I had only spoke to a few weeks before the ceremony. They were married by the animated and friendly Mayor of Garfield Joseph Delaney at the Courthouse. We visited the Paterson Great Falls for a few pre wedding photos.

Clients come first!

Ok, so I tried to have a post to you today. Unfortunately I was unable due to.  Being a one man show is a lot of work.  My clients always come first!  They have the number one priority over everything.  I will always drop what I am doing to meet the needs of my clients in a timely manner.  So please check back tomorrow if you’re interested in learning what the ISO setting on your camera is.

Keep shooting!

Plan early to pick photographer for your big event




Plan early to properly hire a photographer to document your wedding or other special event.

by Rebecca A. Taylor, Angie’s List contributor

Just about everyone with a cell phone can take a focused picture. But not just anyone can photograph a wedding or other special event so its essence is forever captured. For that, you need an experienced wedding or event photographer. To find the right pro for your big day, follow these tips:

Set a budget: Decide on a price range before you contact photographers.

Identify your style: Be clear about what kind of photography you like, and what mix of image types you want. Answer these questions:

  • What kind of story do you want your pictures to tell?
  • Do you prefer a photojournalist approach or something more traditional?
  • Do you want mostly candid or posed shots?
  • Will you want pre-event photos, such as engagement portraits?

Review pros’ styles: Check photographers work online. Note the ones whose work you like.

Plan early: After choosing the date and venue, hiring a photographer is one of the major decisions when planning a wedding or major event.

Get recommendations:  If you plan to employ a wedding or event planner, ask for photographer recommendations. Or, ask family and friends who they’ve liked. Consider also how Angie’s List can help. Members have access to local consumer reviews on photographers and service providers in more than 550 other categories.
