Testimonials from clients:
Pete was awesome. He gave us advice before the shoot for clothing, hair and makeup that was terrific. He patiently explained how the shoot works, allowed us to view the pictures during the shoot to make adjustments, he listened to our thoughts and took our suggestions into consideration. Our proofs were available within two days and were so amazing we had trouble choosing our final photos. He was professional, fun to work with, patient during the shoot and honestly cared that we were happy at every step of the process. I would highly recommend Pete for any type of photo shoot.
I booked Pete for a surprise proposal in Washington Square Park. Pete was incredibly easy to communicate with, showed up early, and took the most incredible photos. 10/10 and would highly recommend Pete to anyone else!
I booked a family photo shoot with Pete at Central Park through a Groupon. He was very friendly and patient considering we got lost and arrived late for our scheduled time. Pete was totally understanding and took some great shots of my family. He was always easy to reach via text, email or phone call. He was able to make our two year old daughter feel comfortable and he was easy to talk to, which is important because you want to feel comfortable with your photographer. His work is great and I highly recommend him.
I had a wonderful session with Pete at Bryant Park. Photo sessions make me nervous but as soon as I began working with Pete, the worry went away. He was really nice and had a very calming presence which put me at ease. I was able to tune out the people around me and focus on my session. Since I had several outfit changes, Pete kept things moving but made sure we got enough pictures of each location within the park and had a variety of poses to choose from. I was a Groupon user and Pete treated me as if I was a regular client. He responded to my email questions and arrived at my session on time. We were running out of time on my last outfit change but he made sure we got enough pictures. Since we began a few minutes late, he allowed the session to run a couple minutes over. I was so appreciative in not feeling rushed. Pete was very professional and I definitely recommend him. It took me months to decide on what pictures to order because I had so many great ones to choose from. Thanks Pete!
Pete is such a nice guy and an amazing photographer. My husband needed fitness related headshots for his website. Pete took 140 photos under an hour and the majority of them were amazing. He’s a WIZARD with lighting – which makes all the difference. I can’t wait to get the photos. I highly recommend him!
I live on the West Coast and found Pete through Groupon. He first photographed me and my family at our home in Brooklyn and then two years later he photographed me and fiance in Central Park. He did a wonderful job both times. He was patient with a tired 94 year old grandmother. He showed up on time, gave us suggestions for how to pose, took us the different locations in central park. He was professional and had the pictures up to proof in a really cool format for us. He even did photo edits to hide…stuff :-). We will always be grateful!
We recently had our maternity photo shoot with Pete, and were absolutely thrilled with the results! Not only was the shoot itself a fun experience, but the photos we received were amazing! I am not generally very comfortable in front of the camera, but Pete made the couple of hours fly by. The only trouble I’m having is choosing which photos to hang in our home!!
My husband and I visit New York every year and last year we decided to have professional pics taken on our trip. We were so lucky to have found Pete, he took such beautiful pictures of us in Central Park. We will cherish the pictures for the rest of our lives. Thanks again.
Pete shot our engagement photos and it was a great experience! We had our photos around the West Village and he worked with the various settings really well. We loved the variety of our shots and were very happy with the whole process.
Pete is great! He is so talented and such a pleasure to work with. Totally reliable and professional and his pictures are stunning. Pete photographed my daughers baptism and we will defintely recommend him to friends/family and book him again next time we have a big event. The pictures he took caputred the very essence of my infant daughter and we will treasure them for years to come. If you choose to work with Pete you will not be dissapointed!
Pete not only is an amazing photographer that has all his pictures come to life but he has patience that will make your photo shoot calm and successful. My four children ages 4, 6, 8 and 10 can be a handful for most, but not Pete!! He enjoyed every moment of the photo shoots he did of them and the kids enjoyed him back. I recommend Pete to all!!!
Pete is an excellent photographer. We hired him to take pictures of our family, and we couldn’t be more happy with the pictures. Pete is also extremely kind, courteous and easy to work with. It was fun to take pictures with Pete, and that cannot be said of many photographers. I am a proud customer and I hope to have the opportunity to use his services in the future. I highly recommend him.
We really enjoyed working with Pete. He was very responsive prior to the shoot, and helped us come up with a location that matched what we were looking for perfectly. During the shoot, he made us feel comfortable instantly. He was extremely patient and sweet with my baby, which we very much appreciated and made the whole experience fun and pleasant. And the photos turned out great. Overall very happy.
I cannot say enough good things about Pete! Amazing photographer and amazing guy. The whole process could not have gone more smoothly, from the start it was easy communication and a quick and effortless shoot, and my one year old was not at his finest that day either. The hardest part was picking the photos, because so many were keepers! Amazing job, I cannot thank you enough!
Pete recently took family pictures for us. He traveled all the way to staten island! He took lovely pictures of both of my children (age 1 and 3.) He was patient and willing to let them play and just catch the moment. It was so hard to pick which portraits we wanted. Pete was fun to work with and made family pictures with two kids an enjoyable morning!
Outstanding work, both in media and photography!! Book him immediately, you absolutely will not regret it. Very professional, great pictures, outstanding prices for any budget, and very fun to work with. Whatever the occasion might be, having a good videographer or photographer really makes all the difference. One less thing to worry about so you can focus on the fun to be had in whatever event you are in. Thanks again Pete for capturing our moment in beautiful photos that will last a lifetime.
It’s funny, I first met Pete while he was shooting a wedding for our friends in VA. After seeing the final pictures posted, I was so impressed with his work and looked further into his portfolio website. Turns out he actually lives in NY and would be available to shoot our wedding in Brooklyn in May! My husband and I sat down with Pete for a meeting to go over what we were looking for and were immediately impressed with his professionalism and obvious experience in both wedding and family portrait photography. Pete had everything figured out down to the last detail, in timing and logistics as well as creative suggestions. Sidenote: Pete is also a website developer, so naturally his online client portal matches that of a major photography company including a preliminary survey, billing statements, a photo checklist and eventually a shareable album of your photos. Another thing I appreciated was Pete’s a la carte service which shows me, he’s not about nickel-and-diming his clientele but creating a positive, smooth process so you feel secure and taken care of. We got our photos last week and they are stunning! I will absolutely be contacting Pete in the future!
Pete is a great photographer in part because he's such a great guy. When he asks everyone to smile, he's smiling right along with you. He took a lot of time to get to know us and what we wanted before the wedding, . He's not in your face - in fact, he got some shots on the dance floor that we didn't know he was there for. We received the photos in a timely manner and he gave us good ideas on creative ways to display them. Photography on the big day is so important and Pete remembered all our priorities so we could just enjoy the day.
pete was friendly, fun, creative and professional shooting engagement photos and putting together our album. he was prompt with emails, open to our ideas, and had a great sense of humor. he put us at ease in front of the camera, too, which made all the difference in getting the natural looks we were after (and made the time much more pleasant for my beloved groom!).
Pete is a great photographer! Not only is his work phenomenal, he is also super easy to work with to make sure the big day is set perfectly into photo memories. He certainly has great ideas on how to capture the moment using the surrounding scenery. He also has a calm demeanor that puts everyone at ease to allow for natural photos. Last but not least, after looking through our photos (which he provided super quick!) it seems like he was everywhere (Chris describes it as omnipresent) based on the fact that some of the pictures he ended up having we didn’t even know he was there taking them at the time. Whenever there was a moment that felt like it would make a good picture he was already there taking it! Looking over our photos and some of his other work it is evident that he is very talented. It was a pleasure to have him there to share in our special day. Thanks Pete!
My fiancé and I found Pete through a website several months ago. We were looking for our engagement photos to be taken in Central Park – a place Pete had much experience in. From the beginning interactions with Pete, we couldn’t be more impressed with how accommodating, professional and reliable he was. Knowing we wanted our Save the Dates to be printed within the next couple of months, Pete graciously squeezed us in to his busy schedule.
Due to my busy schedule we had a limited amount of sunlight available during our shoot and to our surprise, Pete brought both daylight and nighttime equipment. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the final results. With over 400+ photos taken, we had so many choices! Our friends and family continue to comment on how beautiful our photos are.
My fiancé and I highly recommend Pete and will continue to recommend his services to our family and friends!
Pete was absolutely brilliant and a delight to work with. He was so unobtrusive, yet he was able to capture so many beautiful moments of our day. When we received the photos in a few short weeks, we were beyond thrilled! The pictures were more than we expected, we relived our wedding day through his eyes and were overcome with emotion. Our friends and family have complimented us on how amazing our photos have turned out. It is going to be a difficult task of deciding which photos will go into our wedding album. We couldn’t have been happier, I would highly recommend Pete Labrozzi for your wedding or any special event you may have.
