I can't explain how much of a big POSITIVE role this photographer played in our wedding day and making all things run smoothly! He was EXCELLENT! Joe is extremely professional and flexible. We had to reschedule our engagement shoot many times, and not once was he anything but accommodating. My now husband and I had no idea what we were doing for poses or how things should go, and Joe not only guided us when we needed to guided, but also just went with the flow of how we act as a couple, producing AMAZING photos from it - great quality photos with vibrant color and detail. Joe is also the fastest out of all the vendors we hired in responding back to questions or emails/texts, every time responding in less than 24 hours. Joe also the day of our wedding was a huge help to me, personally, as the bride whose bridesmaids and MOH were MIA half the day. Joe helped me fluff my dress, pick the twigs and leaves out of it, taught me how to hold my train and helped make sure I was safely walking on the grass, stairs, and other things he had us trek through in order to get the photos we asked for - this was above and beyond in my book! I just cannot say enough about how great of an experience we had with this photographer. We will be using him for all our future photo needs, and we HIGHLY recommend, as the value in price for the quality you get is on point!
Joe was fantastic. I had a lot of crazy ideas about the photos I wanted and he rolled right with the punches and got AMAZING shots. He was super easy going and nice. Value was spectacular. I couldn't recommend him more.

Joe is a great photographer! He was so easy going & would just go with the flow of the day. He captured pictures that you had no idea he was even taking your photo. I loved that! We had our dog with us for the ceremony & pictures afterwards and he was very accommodating to work with us and our dog. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Joe captures moments like no one else.
I was first impressed with Joe Tate's journalistic aesthetic to photography. I was very attracted to the way his photographs captured the movement and excitement of the events he photographed and were not generically posed like many others I had seen.
Joe was one of the most amazing addition to our wedding day. He was very intuitive, reasonable, easy going, and communicated well with us as well as the other members of our bridal party. I never felt as though I was being invaded with a camera in my face. Many people commented on how considerate he was while taking photographs. As my bridesmaid said during the reception " you don't see him but he is there and taking so many amazing photographs."
I was very please also when we received our photographs. I have a very particular design aesthetic for the wedding and he understood it 100% and every photograph just enhanced it. He is a natural observer, super cool dude, and a great photographer for any occasion!
We could not be happier with our wedding photos. Joe is someone we knew we could trust with some of the most important pictures of our lives! As we look at our photos, we can feel the emotions of our wonderful day all over again. We are amazed at how well Joe was able to be so unobtrusive. We hardly even noticed he was there throughout the day even though he was always right there capturing the perfect moment. We would absolutely recommend Joe to anyone hoping for a photographer who is professional, talented, and easy to work with!

As our wedding day flew by, Joe was able to not only capture the big picture but he was also able to catch the intricate details that truly made the day so special. His pictures do not just freeze people and objects for a moment in time, they tell an elaborate story. Joe is the definition of a professional and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photojournalist.

Joe is a great photographer. He has a knack for being at the right place at the right moment. A quiet professional, Joe is both organized and knowledgeable. He simply lets the events unfold and documents with quality images. Not only that but he recognized the style of our wedding and matched it with an appropriate style of photography all his own. We certainly recommend Joe to anyone looking for great digital photographs.

Joe captured many moments from our wedding so we can remember them for a lifetime. He has a very good taste in photography and is very creative with his shots. His creativity and an eye to capture the day fit our wedding and my personality perfectly. Joe moved around our wedding without being seen, and didn't interfere with the day. He is very knowledgeable in photography and well organized. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a someone to capture all those special moments in their lives.
