Wedding Photos in Brooklyn

NYC Wedding Photographer

Jose Melgarejo is a Wedding Photographer in Brooklyn New York City. His approach combines fine art portraits and photographic journalism to tell a memorable story. Based in NYC and available worldwide.

I want you to think about this. If all we want is pretty pictures we have to look much deeper. Our photographs need beautiful feelings. Decades from now we may forget how to remember but we will remember how to feel. We will see a photograph but feel a moment. Above all things, that is what I work to create.

Jose was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was kind, flexible and patient with us when we changed our wedding plans on him due to covid multiple times. Not only is he a great human, but his photography is out of this world. Our wedding pictures took my breath away. When taking pictures, Jose is unobtrusive, allowing you to feel at ease, which in return, allows him to capture such beautiful organic moments of everyone in attendance. If you are considering Jose to photograph a special moment, prepare to be stunned.

Jose is an amazing photographer. My Fiance and I had an amazing time working with him. The entire process was very easy and fun. Jose gave us suggestions on where to take our engagement shoot, ideas on posses and photo vibes that would match our vision. He also had a call with us prior to the photoshoot to understand our vision much further so we were all on the same page. The day of the shoot was great and he made us feel comfortable on the camera. I would totally recommend Jose! He is THE BEST photographer! And your photos end up looking amazing!

I don't even know where to start because I have so many good things to say about Jose. Jose is one of the most special people my husband and I have met. He was such an important piece of our day and we are so thankful he was a part of it. Leading up to the wedding we were able to get to know him and he is so funny and easy to talk to. We loved that he shared his own personal experiences from his wedding and his advice was so spot on. The day of the wedding he made sure we took time for us and when there were moments of stress he stepped in and made sure we were breathing haha. Our family and friends absolutely loved him just as much as we did. I always think back to the very end of the night as the venue was being cleaned up and packed away and the three of us hugging on the empty dance floor. It was the perfect ending to the perfect night. Jose is so incredibly talented at what he does. His work is beautiful art and he also is a great therapist haha. Anyone that works with Jose will see how lucky they are to share such a special day with such an amazing human being.

Jose is a friendly and very profesional photographer. After choosing some epic places to do the session, we had a spectacular day with him, keeping memories for the rest of our life. He was respectful and let us do whatever we wanted in front of the camera.
Totally recommended if you want to have wedding or honeymoon photos.
And also important, he speaks Spanish very well which was important to transmit us his ideas. (Translated from Spanish)

You made our engagement session so comfortable, Jose! Thank you for perfectly capturing us, encouraging us to be ourselves, and creating these memories we will treasure forever! Your talent is undeniable. Everyone we’ve shared your work with absolutely love it.

Jose is simply amazing. He put together a beautiful shoot for my girlfriend and I who had never had our photos taken professionally before. We were beyond nervous and felt totally awkward behind the camera when we started shooting. Within minutes Jose had morphed from a stranger I had never met into this amazing friend, support, encourager, and someone who knew exactly what to do to get Rachel and I in the "zone". The pictures we had taken were absolutely breathtaking and something that we will cherish forever.

Jose put us immediately at ease, remained calm and assured throughout and was able to shoot a treasure trove of photos that both of our families were more than pleased with. Jose is undoubtedly a great artist with an impeccable eye but what struck us most was his keen ability to capture the intimacy and the spark at the heart of our relationship and to convey that visually in an engaging way. He was flexible in terms of location and time, brimmed with ideas of his own and was open and willing to any and all of our suggestions. We were delighted to have him photograph our engagement and are overjoyed to get to collaborate with him once more at our wedding

Jose is cool, calm, patient and has a great eye for composition. He also gives great direction! The session he did with my wife and me was both directed and spontaneous but Jose’s ability to capture that decisive moment made the images feel a lot more like the latter than the former.
