Mariela - May, 2010 Wedding Mariela & Robert's Wedding
I can't rave enough about Door 51. Honestly, I don't know if I can find words to do them justice, but I'll try. First off, their work is AMAZING. They capture the real, raw, true essence of the moment, of your love for one another, of your personalities, of the little details that make the day special. My husband and I were far from being comfortable in front of the camera, but Alex and Nicole have a way of not only making you feel comfortable, but gently guiding you in such a way that brings out the best version of yourself. I feel like our engagement and wedding pics showed the real "us" but in a way I never thought possible to capture on film. I fall in love with their work each time I go through my albums. On top of being talented, Alex and Nicole are awesome to work with. They make a great team. I absolutely loved working with them and I look forward to working with them to capture more special moments as my husband and I start our family. Door51, you are brilliant, talented, and a JOY to work with. Thanks for everything!!
Mellanie - 2010 Wedding
AWESOME!!! No words can express how much we love Alex's work and "eye." Alex did such an awesome job capturing "us." We had a blast doing our engagement session and know for sure that it will be the same for our wedding. Wish I could give more than 5 stars because Door 51: -provides high quality prints (not cheap glossy looking prints) -posts pictures and tags you on Facebook (a huge plus so family and friends can see) -is affordable and quality is not sacrificed -friendly, professional, and answers questions, concerns, and needs fast -makes you feel comfortable and lets the real 'you' come out -takes unique pictures that everyone you show will LOVE To sum it up, if you're looking for a photographer to capture any type of special day/event, don't hesitate to choose Door 51.
Veronica - 2010 Wedding
Door 51 photography is awesome! Alex and Nicole have been friends of ours for a couple of years but we choose Door 51 because Alex is simply the best photographer we have seen. When he took our engagement photos it was evident that he is very passionate and enthusiastic about his work. He puts so much thought into every picture he takes and they all come out so beautiful. All of our friends and family absolutely loved all of our pictures. I would strongly recommend Door 51 to anyone planning on getting married or for other occasions as well. I can't wait until they take our wedding day pictures!
Luis - September 5, 2009 Wedding Luis and Cassie's Wedding
AMAZING. That is one word that describes our experience with Door51. From the very first meeting Alex and Nicole really went the distance to make sure the whole experience was a smooth as possible. They met with us and got to know us before taking even one photo. Alex's passion and professionalism stand out in a crowd of mediocre wedding photographers. We purchased an engagement session along with our wedding and each and every photo was a work of art. It takes a very keen eye, photographic skill and serious dedication to capture images like these. You can see from the photos on their website that Door51 has got what it takes. Heck, even check out ours (Cassie and Luis) from Sep. 09.
Pasia Her - May 28, 2009 Wedding Pasia & Jay's Wedding
Door51 photography is amazing!! Our wedding pictures are absolutely gorgeous! Alex is very talented, creative, patient, and affordable. We felt comfortable with him right away as he was always helpful and honest with us. I HIGHLY recommend Door51 Photography to any couple looking for BEAUTIFUL UNIQUE pictures to capture their wedding day and last a lifetime. Thank you, Alex and Nicole!!
Alicia Solle - June 12, 2008 Wedding Aaron & Alicia's Wedding
Look no more, fellow Yelpers, you have found your photographers. When planning our wedding, we put a lot of time and thought into choosing our photographers. We had heard a lot of horror stories about wedding photographers being pushy, taking cookie-cutter photos, and being late with prints. We really wanted to find photographers who could capture our day beautifully without making us crazy. Hiring Alex and Nicole at Door 51 was one of the best decisions that we made - our engagement and wedding photos are absolutely amazing and we loved working with them! Alex and Nicole are top-notch photographic professionals. They have an expansive knowledge of their craft and made excellent suggestions about how to get the best possible shots. At the same time, they were always asking for our input - did we want more posed shots or more photo-journalistic ones, did we have examples of pictures that we loved and wanted to recreate, were we comfortable with climbing up a tree for a few shots (we were, and the resulting pics were great). Alex and Nicole also happen to be incredibly warm and kind people which makes it easy for you to be yourself and have fun during your shoot. This is more than a job for them, they truly are committed to bringing out the beautiful and capturing the magic of the people that they work with. We couldn't be happier with the service that we received from Door 51. My husband and I will be sticking with Alex and Nicole for life - I can't wait to have them take pictures of our future babies and wedding anniversaries.
Mary Afsari - November 8th, 2008 Wedding Mary and Keith's Wedding
We cannot sing enough praise about our wedding photos & about Alex & Nicole. Their website won me over as I struggled to find a photographer from Connecticut...reading through their blog, their artistic eye was apparent. Both Alex & Nicole were so friendly & professional & took the time to meet with my parents and then attend our rehearsal dinner to meet us. The pictures speak for themselves, but the rave reviews from my family & friends are also telling. I am a little bias, but I don't recall ever seeing such beautiful wedding pictures! Our friends all say these pictures look straight out of a magazine. We received our wedding album in a very timely fashion and it is impressive. Alex's experience with graphic design infuses this one of a kind portfolio with unique perspective & gorgeous full-size photos and collages. I encourage you to check out their website & know that you can trust Door51 with your most intimate & important life events!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write these wonderful review for us. We are grateful to have worked with such lovely people!
