Documenting life as it happens…



I’m Joe Delgado, founder and lead photographer at Delgado Studios.  I am a documentary wedding and family photographer based out of Old Bridge, NJ.   I photograph the majority of weddings myself, however I also offer excellent associate photographers at a lower price point.  Unlike the mega-studios, you will always know ahead of time who will be photographing your wedding.  I make sure my associate photographers share the same philosophy and are also a pleasure to work with.  As far as my shooting style goes, I do not like overly posed, uptight looking images.   I prefer to give my couples direction to create natural looking photos.  After all, it’s all about the experience.


Authentic.  If there’s one word to describe my philosophy it’s just that.  Documentary photography is all about authenticity.  Capturing the day as it unfolds, including all of the fun, excitement and emotions.  Whether this means documenting a couple’s wedding day or a family’s interactions during a family session.  I feel the wedding photography should revolve around the wedding day, not the other way around.  Natural looking images is what I strive for.  I also like to create artistic images with dynamic lighting and composition.  No filters, no Photoshop, no nonsense.  In-camera awesomeness.
