Engel Photographic | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer - Malvern - Reading - Pottstown - Main Line | Jake Engel

About

 

Who are you?

My name is Jake Engel and I've been paying for my food (and other things) by taking pictures for about 12 years. I started my career as a commercial product photographer in NYC, where I met my wife, Stephanie. We escaped back to Berks County, PA, a couple of years ago and opened a studio near our very old stone home.

Why do you want to photograph our wedding?

Honestly, I used to be  a total wedding grinch. Weddings seemed so full of nonsense and conflict that had little to do with people just being in love and wanting to stay that way. When Steph and I got married in May '12, we did our best to make our wedding as "us" as possible without losing sight of just, you know, getting married and being happy. In short, we did that. We're happy — we had a fun, not-crazy wedding with our family and friends and we both enjoyed every minute of it. It completely changed my view of weddings... I now LOVE working with couples and capturing their day and all the emotions I remember experiencing myself. It takes me back to my favorite wedding every time, and that is an awesome feeling.

​What is included?

  • All day coverage. From the dress until the end of the party — I capture everything.
  • Edited, digital files that you are free to print and share with friends and family using any services you like. I do not charge extra for these files or try to sell you expensive prints or photo albums.
  • A professional photographer (me!) who has top-of-the-line gear plus backups, insurance, and all the benefits of an established photography business.

What will all this amazingness cost us?

Only $2550!

Will you take our engagement photos?

You bet! I offer engagement sessions from $350. Contact me for more information!

Do you offer prints or albums?

I've recently begun offering beautiful, hand-made albums from Madera Books. I also offer the highest quality prints from a professional lab that are fully color calibrated to my editing system. They're awesome and you can order them right from my website! You still won't be bound to use me for the album creation process should you choose to take your digital files elsewhere.

Do you work with a second photographer?

I do work with an assistant, but I don't generally work with a second shooter. I'm very confident that I can cover all of the important aspects of your day as the sole photographer. If you would like a second shooter I do have one available for an additional fee.

LGBTQ?

Yes!

Great! Now show me the pretty pictures again!
