Figtree Productions is a family-owned photography studio in the NJ/NY metropolitan region spanning two generations. Joel and Doris, with their daughters Jessica and Danielle, photograph as a team to bring you a blend of styles, including photojournalism, and modern editorial photography, guaranteeing a unique perspective on your wedding day.

Our team approach allows us to cover weddings in a way that cannot be duplicated by a one single photographer and ensures that all of the beauty, love, raw emotion, and spontaneity of your wedding is captured from every angle.

Being a small family owned studio compels us to be creative and enthusiastic and we are constantly challenging each other to come up with original and fresh ideas. Each one of us wants to be the one that takes "your favorite" photograph from your wedding and our family dynamics puts our couples and their families and friends at ease.

We offer a wide range of coverage and product options to fit every budget. If you decide an album is for you, all of our album designs are created in-house by our designer Danielle. Instead of using templates, she designs it with you page by page, incorporating your ideas and getting your feedback. You will end up with a unique one-of-a kind book incorporating all the themes and details from your wedding.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

We love creative ideas that the offbeat couple bring to the wedding; those personal touches or unusual locations or situations are what inspires and motivates us.

We create our best images when we walk into a shoot with an open mind and try not to rely on pre-conceived ideas of what “shots” to get. Capturing the relationships and interactions of your family and friends, is more important to us than trendy or traditional "shots".

We try not to get too caught up in following trends so that we can maximize our own creative opportunities and instead try to focus on exactly the moments that are presented to us. However, if you're looking for a little more direction or a dash of traditional, we have the experience needed to pull that off as well.

With years of experience and two generations of artists, you can feel comfortable knowing that we can handle any situation that is thrown at us. When others say they can do it, we say we have done it!

"Figtree made the whole wedding photography experience absolutely amazing. They were very easy to talk to and work with. They were not pushy and in our faces about posing the right way and timing, etc. they just let the day really be about us, which is exactly what we wanted." – Love, Carolyn & Chris 🙂

Examples of my work

  • Nicole and Michael fit the "Goth Glam" role perfectly. Nicole was stunning in her smoky black eye-shadow and birdcage veil. There were saw spiders, skulls, black and red colors throughout; this of course sent us into a photographing frenzy. The goth glam wedding theme was present during the reception at Macaluso's with red up-lighting and black candle centerpieces. Our favorite detail was their day of the dead cake topper that we have featured in our gallery.
  • Katie and Silas incorporated many quirky details into their wedding, including a tandem bicycle… they even brought one to their engagement session! A beautiful bride, a handsome groom, a couple who are so obviously in love with each other in a great location with beautiful weather… It was a real pleasure to photograph!
  • Due to the small, intimate nature of their wedding, we got to know Julie and Matt on a personal level while spending time with them on their special day. The stories that they shared with their friends and family were emotional and touching. Not only are they a wonderful spontaneous fun loving couple, but the venue they selected for their wedding, the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ is a fantastic location that provided INCREDIBLE backdrops! Everywhere you look, there is artistic inspiration; we had a blast photographing there.
