We are really impressed....

We recently had our engagement photo session with Doug and the shots were wonderful! He knew how to have us pose and the angles and background came out amazing. We didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable during any shots, it looked very natural in the pictures. We are really impressed and are looking forward to our wedding day with Abacus for both photography and videography!

Alex was so helpful when it came to making the right decision to use Abacus Studios. They come up with packages to fit any budget. They are super responsive to all inquiries.

I am thrilled for the wedding. If the engagement pictures came out this great..I can only imagine my wedding photos. This company is so professional and I would highly recommend them!

Abacus Studios Was Great!!!

Abacus Studios was great! We had 2 photographers and a videographer. From the very first contact with Alex through the process he was warm, friendly, professional and answered all my questions promptly and expertly. The day-of was smooth and the photographers were great. We didn’t even know they were there. We are very pleased with our photos. We would have liked some more formal shots of us as well as more of ones of us with our guests. They also did a lot of shots from straight on and underneath which made a lot of the candid shots of us not as flattering as they could have been if they had been shot from a higher angle. We also didn’t have any photos of late in the evening of the dessert area. We got our proofs within 2 weeks- super prompt and professional. So all in all I would highly recommend them- they were excellent!!!!

amazing photography

We first heard about Abacus Studios through a close friend. Alex was very responsive to my initial questions & pricing was within our budget, so my husband and I decided to meet with him. We were very impressed with everything. He showed us all the different options & services they provided and discussed cost and what each package would entail. Alex was also very accommodating as we had to bring our young daughter to the meeting, which was a huge plus for us. We decided to go with photography & the photo booth. Alex kept in touch as we were planning our wedding, he answered whatever questions came up during the process. A week or so before the wedding, Doug got so many amazing pictures the day of our wedding. He perfectly captured my husband and our daughters “first look” as well as some amazing candid pictures. The photo booth was a big hit with everyone at our reception. I would absolutely recommend Abacus Studios to everyone.

My fiancée and I had the greatest experience with Abacus Studios during our engagement photos.

My fiancée and I had the greatest experience with Abacus Studios during our engagement photos. Doug was great and very flexible. We had our engagement photos at liberty state park (in which we were not familiar with the area) and Doug helped us with directions while we were driving to the location. We were also late and Doug had no problem waiting for us as we sat in traffic. He was very knowledgeable of the best places to take pictures and what poses looked beat and our engagement pictures came out flawless. You will not find a better photographer☺️. I highly recommend them.

Absolutly Amazing!

When we first met Alex, the owner of Abacus Studios, we were impressed not only with the quality of his studio’s work, but also with his enthusiasm, warmth, and sincerity in working with our budget. We booked Abacus Studios for our wedding's photography, videography, and photo booth. eThrough Doug’s eye and guidance, he got us into many different poses that felt natural. We got so many compliments on the pictures from our engagement session that we had the “problem” of choosing which ones to use for our Save the Dates. Alex maintained steady communication to answer all of our questions and make sure that we had all logistics set, so that things would go smoothly that day. Both Doug and John (our videographer) reached out to us personally prior to the wedding day to ensure that they had the correct contact information and schedule of events. Our family and friends were thrilled by the service we received from Abacus Studios, as were we!

Abacus Studio was phenomenal to work with. They exceeded my very high standards of photography excellence in style, quality and deliver ability. I worked closely with Alex on all aspects of designing the package which would suit our financial constraints as well as what we wanted - and Doug Davies did a wonderful job on the photos. They are stunning! I can not wait to get prints made of these photos as they are magazine quality pictures. Thank you Doug and Abacus for helping to make our photography dreams of our wedding come true!!!!

Look no further for your photographer.

Look no further for your photographer. This photography company was recommended to me by a coworker. First, Alex is a pleasure to work with. He is easy to reach and responds immediately to any questions/concerns. We had our engagement session with Doug last a week ago and we were impressed with how easy and fun it was. Doug had a great eye for finding the best places in the park we chose to capture artistic, natural looking pictures. The pictures were fantastic. Thank you again Doug.

We used Abacus for our July wedding.

We used Abacus for our July wedding. We booked them far in advance and took advantage of their offer for free engagement photos also. Our photographer was Doug, and he did a great job. He sent us an email link of our pictures from both events within 10 days, and we later received a CD copy that allowed us to print our own pictures. He took a ton of great pictures so we had quite a large selection to pick from! Doug was professional and took all of the specific shots we asked for. He also accommodated our preferred location for first look photos, and was very efficient in getting our photos done before the ceremony so we could enjoy the rest of our day.

Abacus Studios provided A1 service through the entire process!

Abacus Studios provided A1 service through the entire process. We met Alex and he welcomed us with open arms. He made us feel so comfortable and he did not pressure us to book with him which we liked. He listened to our needs and he made it all happen. It was a pleasure working with Michelle, John and Doug. They were all so pleasant and professional throughout the entire day. Michelle was with me from bridal preparation to the reception. She is absolutely amazing and would choose her again in a heartbeat. My ladies met her for the first time on our wedding day and they couldn't stop talking about how great she was. Doug took care of my guys prior to the ceremony and they loved working with him. He took some amazing shots at the house. John captured all our special moments via video and he did a wonderful job. We returned from our 10 day honeymoon and received our CD with photos in the mail now that is fast service. You will not be disappointed with Abacus Studios. Highly recommended!

My husband and I DEFINITELY recommend using Abacus Studios as your wedding photography vendor.

My husband and I DEFINITELY recommend using Abacus Studios as your wedding photography vendor. We got married at the Crystal Plaza on September 22, 2017. We selected Abacus studios for our photographers after sitting with Alex, he was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and really made us feel comfortable. We ended up going with their Deluxe Photo Package and booking our photo booth with them as well as engagement photos. Throughout the whole process Alex and his team were extremely responsive to all our questions! Both Michelle and Lynette were amazing! From the time they each arrived to the end they had great idea and vision for our photos and were efficient with our time throughout the day. We just got the preview for our photos and they are AWESOME! It is impossible to select our favorite, they are really beautiful, but also capture the personalities of our family and friends and how wonderful the whole day was. We can’t wait to get our prints!!

We have booked Abacus Studios for our wedding's photography, videography, and photo booth. Doug, the photographer who took our engagement pictures, likewise gave great service and guidance. He suggested the place where we ultimately would have our engagement pictures taken. The venue that he suggested was a beautiful park with a botanical garden, bridge, and other spots that made for amazing pictures. Through Doug’s eye and guidance, he got us into many different poses that felt natural. We have gotten so many compliments on the pictures from our engagement session that we now have the “problem” of choosing which ones to use for our Save the Dates. We highly recommend Abacus Studios, and are looking forward to working with Alex, Doug, and the team for our wedding this July!

I definitely recommend using Abacus Studios! :)

We just recently had our engagement photo shoot (11/4/17) with Michelle and my fiance and I cannot say enough great things about how the day went! Michelle was friendly and funny right from the get go. She made us feel 100% comfortable the entire time. We did our engagement shoot at Grounds for Sculpture, which is a huge place and Michelle took her time with each photo and had no problem, walking around the grounds trying to find all the good spots for photos. She was extremely patient and thorough. I highly, highly recommend using Abacus Studios as your engagement/wedding photographer. They definitely do not disappoint! :) Also, I need to commend Alex, as well for his work with us. When we first met with him, he was extremely friendly and thorough with explaining all the different packages and everything Abacus Studios has to offer. He has answered every phone call and email right away and has always answered all questions. Again, I definitely recommend using Abacus Studios! :)

I received my pictures online within a week of the wedding.

I used this company for my wedding. From start to finish I was very pleased with my choice. I met with Alex to book. He was very accommodating to my needs. I had John and Doug for my photography and videography package. Both called me two days prior to the wedding to confirm times and locations as well as talk about any ideas I had. The day of they were there capturing the moments but were not in the way. I received my pictures online within a week of the wedding. I can not want to see the sneak peek of the video. I would highly recommend this company.

She also was a life saver for my zipper on my wedding dress and my husband's shoe laces. The best part was within a week after our wedding, abacus studio sent the digital copy of all our pictures.

I would highly recommend using Abacus Studios for your photos

would highly recommend using Abacus Studios for your photos. I was very impressed so far with the process. Their responsiveness to questions by answering emails and phone calls. The flexibility when it came to payment and making later appointments to accommodate our work schedules. They were willing to work with my fiancé and I spending additional time to capture our vision. They are very knowledgeable and very family oriented. Doug came up with great ideas where we should take the photos. He was earlier than our appointment and made sure we got some great shots. Doug was great taking pictures with my family. My daughter is almost 4 years old and it's hard to always capture her attention. His patience with her was great. He captured family shots and well as shots with my fiancé and I. I am so excited to see the photos from the wedding. I can only imagine if these photos came out this well for the engagement.. I can't wait for our wedding.

Abacus Studio did a great job!

Jenny said... Abacus Studio did a great job on our wedding day. I too am a professional photographer in addition to being very meticulous and extremely organized person, so I had a day of time line itinerary laid out down to the minute. Our photographer, Michelle & videographer, Damian had flowed it to the T. (Even though it rained for the most part of the day, the minute it stopped we took advantage of the garden in Nanina's in the Park). My entire wedding party was raving about their friendliness and excitement throughout the day. My overall experience with Abacus Studio was amazing. We got some really nice shots) I'm happy I hired them for our wedding. Alex the owner, is very friendly and down to earth, so easy to talk to. I emailed him anytime I had a question and he responded promptly. He even popped in during the reception to make sure everything was going to plan. Super Happy with the pictures, they came our great! Thank you! --Jenny & Andy Lai

Abacus set the bar very high!

Let me start this off with I hate pictures of myself so I knew finding a photographer for our wedding was going to be a challenge. Abacus studio was the first place we spoke with and they set the bar VERY high for the other studios we met with. I was picky in the sense that I don't like staged pictures. Alex and team assured me that they would take quality pictures in a style that I would love, and they were right. We worked with Michelle and she was AMAZING. The pictures she took were amazing and I loved every single one of them. I had a little issue that happened while getting out of the car to go to the church (car grease all down my dress) and I was very upset to say the least. She calmed me down (so not part of her job description) and made sure not 1 picture showed the black grease and she delivered! I would recommend Abacus studio to anyone who is looking for a top notch studio that is responsive and answers questions long after your special day is over.

I could not have asked for a better photographer and videographer!

I could not have asked for a better photographer and videographer, or for better photos. But let me start at the the beggining. Alex, who is one of the owners of the studio, was very approachable and met with my family for a few consultations. He was very willing to work within our budget, and to give us the photos of our dreams. On the day of the wedding, our photographer Michelle and and our videographer Damian both arrived bright and early and went to work. They captured every moment beautifully and were very professional. They made my entire bridal party have fun and feel comfortable. I reviewed the post wedding proofs and our photos came out amazing! Michelle captured every shot. Also, we used a photo booth for our wedding. The guests loved it and had a blast! I would recommend Abacus to every bride and groom out there looking to have an exceptional team for their special event.

We truly enjoyed working Abacus

Alex, the owner of Abacus Studio, is awesome. He is super friendly, nice, and worked with us on our budget. Great with responding to questions and concerns. We got to work with Doug, Michelle, and Damian. Doug was definitely more serious but was great at directing shots and making sure he got the best shot. We truly enjoyed working with this team. You can tell it's a small business and they remember their clients and care about their special day. We got a TON of pictures from them after the wedding, they captured our wedding perfectly and we were so happy with the results. They were also SUPER patient and accommodating with all my crazy picture requests (one involved the whole wedding party of 18 people running away from the ocean, and they helped us photoshop a shark jumping out of the ocean haha) Would recommend them to any of our family or friends. We actually miss seeing them because they were so nice haha! Miss you guys and thanks so much for a perfect day!

What a great engagement photo shoot!

What a great engagement photo shoot! We had Doug take our engagement pictures at Rutgers Garden, and he was fantastic! We may have picked the hottest, most humid day, but Doug was efficient, yet moved it along because it was unbearable. The pictures are incredible and we were so excited when we saw them, absolutely amazing. Abacus is so easy to work with and we are looking forward to having them at our wedding for the photography and videography.
