    I used John Arcara for my photos and he was fantastic! I can also recommend Angela Pilat she did my b-pics and was great too. Our band The Projekt had the dance floor packed all night and any song we asked for they were able to play! Highly recommended!!

    I would check out Jason Rhee for photography.  I booked him for my November '10 wedding I was so impressed with his portfolio.  Plus his prices are good (you get a lot for your money compared to some other photographers we looked at).

    What price ranges are you looking in?  Knowing that will help us make more useful recs.

    I had a DJ, but I used Shawn and Jake from Christian Oth Studio (www.christianothstudio.com) for my wedding.  Karen Wise, who is recommended above, has a different style but would have been one of the ones we would have looked at next -- she was highly recommended by friends who used her.

    Welcome!

    Photographer- Kenny Pang
    We had our engagement photos last month and we LOVE our pictures.  Kenny has an upbeat and fun energy.  He made us laugh and feel comfortable the entire time.  He also has an incredible artistic eye.  I recommend him 100%.

    Band- The Dream Team (NYC Swing Company)
    We are working with Joe Shane.  We hired the band after going to their live showcase.  They play a lot of rock, and other fun music (old school r&B, theclassics, but we are requesting no disco).  I'll have even more info over the next 2 months as we plan out the details with them.

    Good luck!  If you have any questions, PM me!

    We hired Matt Rainey and he was awesome.

    He normally shoots for The Star-Ledger (he actually won a Pulitzer Prize for his photojournalism) but has gotten into weddings in the past few years. He was awesome to work with; he has a great, laid-back personality; he wasn't intrusive and didn't set up a bunch of cheesy posed shots; and he's very reasonably priced. We were thrilled with him and got nothing but compliments from our parents and bridal party. I have a bunch of his photos in my bio (click the link below my picture) if you want to see them.

    We hired a DJ so I don't have a band recommendation for you.

    We're using The Fuzzpops. They are a rock/pop band with roots in NJ bars. Can't wait!

    Still working on a photographer.

    I second Soul Revival for a band!!!!!!!!!  We used them at our Dec. wedding and they were amazing!!!  They are reasonably priced and sounded so good, the dance floor was packed all night long, which is exactly what we wanted!!!  I highly recommend them!

    Dante Williams for photographer is amazing also!  He photos were gorgeous and he captured so many shots I didn't even know were happening and I couldn't have been happier with his work.  Plus he is also reasonably priced for a photographer!  

    HTH!  Lucy

    Hey I am using Jason Craig - Night Moves for my band and Jason Rhee for photography. 
    Other bands worth looking at is Craig Scott.   I also liked Josh Lynn for photography.

    Thank you so much for all your recommendations. I am not sure of our budget for these vendors yet. I love your pics-those that shared. Thanks again.
