  • We booked Louis and Alex for our Jan 19th wedding and they were great from the start! Louis is friendly and takes his time with you, listening to your preferences and taking the time to understand you and your style! He met with us in person to make sure we all felt comfortable together and listened to all of our ideas! Our wedding day turned out to be pretty cold with some recent heavy snow but we wanted some outdoor pictures and they pulled it off like pros! Their prices are very reasonable and I as soon as I saw his portfolio I knew I wanted him for our wedding. Can't say enough good things! THANKS LOUIS!!

  • Having Louis as our wedding photographer was hands down one of the best decisions we made. We got married at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ this past March. Louis was so easy to work with - even during our first phone call he immediately made us feel like we've known him forever. It was such a relief to have a professional wedding photographer who had experience shooting at our venue. He was very reasonably priced, has a ton of experience which shows in every single photograph he took, and was very responsive. We didn't do an engagement shoot as we opted for a second photographer instead, and we didn't regret the decision. The day of our wedding, Louis and his assistant took many photos from different aspects and from both sides of the family. Honestly, we didn't even realize Louis and his assistant were taking photographs for the majority of the day. They got some great action shots that my partner and I didn't personally witness - it was great having these photographs t... Read more

    Thanks so much for such a thorough review! And thanks for being the first Couple to add 3D to your package. It's something that I started offering in 2019 and I believe I probably am the only photographer anywhere to offer it. You have in the little wooden box something very exclusive. I am sure people will love to look at it over the years! I'll see you again down the road for more photos! Louis Schroder Photographer

  • Louis & Alex were the absolute best for my wedding this past weekend in Asbury Park at Tim McLoone's Supper Club. They were so friendly, professional and eager to ensure we got all of the pictures we wanted & more. My wedding party & family loved them both and truly enjoyed working with them. We could truly see how much they love what they do and how much they wanted to capture all of the love throughout my day. You will not be disappointed!

  • Louis and his assistant Alex, photographed our wedding in September 2018. It rained on our special day and deep down I was upset about the rain and concerned about how the photographs would turn out. Both Louis and Alex were so reassuring and they definitely did not disappoint! Louis and Alex delivered such beautiful and romantic photos. I am so glad that we picked Schroder Photography to photograph our wedding day. I highly recommend!

  • Louis was absolutely amazing and a pleasure to work with. A great professional, he knew what pictures would look the best and made sure to capture of all the important moments. Any pictures that we requested to be taken were taken. We have seen some of our pictures as posted on Facebook, as they were put up the same day, and they were amazing and breathtaking. I can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures! I highly recommend Louis to photograph any event as he was amazing. Should I ever need to hire a photographer for any event, I will be calling Louis. Thanks for everything Louis!!

  • We are so happy we picked Louis to be the photographer at our wedding! He was pleasant from the very beginning and forthcoming about the entire process. I definitely wanted the wedding to be as laid back as possible, which we talked about beforehand so that everyone would be on board. Louis and his assistant were super friendly and were able to take tons of candid shots. We got lots of positive feedback from guests about how "the photographers stayed out of the way", which isn't always the case. The pictures came out wonderful and captured even the smallest details. We got the photos back within a month of the wedding. We truly appreciated everything and would highly recommend Louis to anyone in need of an event photographer! :)

  • Best decision ever made. Of all our vendors, Louis was the easiest and best to work with. From the first phone call I got the sense that Louis would match our personalities perfectly, laid back and fun (with the exception of my bridezilla moment 15 minutes before the ceremony, which was captured hillariously). I don't know how he physically did it, but he caught every moment. Some of my favorite shots are of the kids being 4 year old kids. Crying, wandering off, in time out... Louis got them. My husband and I are known for NEVER looking good in the same photo at the same time, but he got those too. I can't say enough about his professionalism. The week before the wedding we had a phone call in which he assured me the forecast would be wrong and it wouldn't snow 4-6 inches on my wedding day, while everyone else was reminding me of their weather policies. The day rolls around and it starts to flurry, but it stopped just about the second Louis walked into the room (early). An hour later w... Read more

  • OMG!!! AMAZING!!! Louis was fantastic!!! He was great to work with!! Whenever I would email him before the big day, he would respond, and we had a phone conference the week of the wedding to finalize all plans. Louis and his assistant, Alex, were not only on time, but they were early to arrive!!! Louis was so easy going, and his assistant Alex was fantastic too!! Louis and Alex took such great photos, ones we didn't even know they took!! I have been part of wedding where the photographer tried to steal the show, but Louis was the complete opposite!! I didn't even know he was there sometimes taking photos! They were so approachable and any photo you wanted, they took!! My mom has a big family so she wanted a photo of her and all of her cousins. Louis staged them all during the reception with chairs and height order!!! Truly amazing and great!!! Louis also had such a quick turn around, we got our photo LESS THAN A MONTH after our wedding!!! Truly amazing!! I plan on calling Louis when we... Read more

  • Louis was the first vendor we booked for our wedding because well.. photography is the way you're going to look back on your beautiful day! It was SO important to my husband and I to have an amazing photographer for our special day, and we were never worried once we booked, met, and worked with Louis. Louis was referred to me by a friend down in Maryland, and we did an engagement session with him about a year before our wedding (with our two dogs too). He made us feel so comfortable, understood our style, and captured amazing, natural, and artistic shots. Once we saw the engagement photos, we knew we had booked a winner for our wedding. Louis is always easy to communicate with, accessible, professional, on time, and reliable. He captured beautiful shots on our wedding day, we were just thrilled getting all of the amazing photos back. Louis was even able to capture some amazing, once in a lifetime shots with our two dogs at the wedding with us, family, friends, etc. We also had a very ... Read more

    Mercedes, thanks so much. I enjoyed very much both the engagement session a long year before the wedding and your wedding day itself. My objective throughout my career has been to make photos that my clients will love for many years and am I very pleased that I have done that for you guys. Thanks again and send my best to Ryan and the pups!

  • Highly highly recommend Schroder Photography! Louis was so professional and fun to work with. He called me about a week before the wedding and came up with all of the timing (first look, family pictures, etc.) so that we could get all of the shots we wanted while barely missing any of the cocktail hour/reception. He was very organized and really moved our large wedding party along during pictures so that we were all in the right place at the right time. The photos are extremely high quality and you can see how much effort he put into them. I was thrilled to see pictures of all of the guests and even of fun moments that I didn't know happened! I sincerely recommend him- you can put your total faith in him to photograph the day in a way that captures all of the big moments as well as the little details beautifully. I decided on the package with two photographers (the second photographer was Alex and he was excellent as well) because this allowed them to get several angles of key moments.

  • Louis was the BEST decision we could have made in terms of hiring a photographer for our wedding! Our wedding took place in Asbury Park, NJ, at the end of September, but we live in the Washington, DC area. He made the long-distance planning process very easy and stress-free. From the beginning phone call with Louis, we knew we would love his work and his ability to not only do the planned pictures that are associated with weddings, but also capture the candid moments creatively -- and that is exactly what he did! We also did an engagement session with him, in which he did a great job incorporating our dog (who was also in the wedding ceremony) -- and it is evident he loves working with both people and animals. We also received comments from guests (and we agree!) that he somehow managed to stay so low profile that it was like we didn't even have a photographer there ((but he captured ALL of the most perfect pictures of the wedding and even photos of our guests)). We left for our honeym... Read more

    Brandy, Thanks so much for you kind words. It really was a pleasure capturing not only your wedding day but also the engagement session. Everyone in your family including your pup were very sweet. You guys make my job very enjoyable. Thanks and enjoy the Photos for many decades to come. Louis Schroder

  • My (now) husband and I had no idea what kind of photos we wanted or even what to expect. So when we told Luis to take the reigns on this we were stunned at not only on his level of professionalism but how artistic he was with photos. He truly but our minds at ease knowing we had a true artistic professional behind the camera. 100% reccomend him!

  • I could not of been happier with the whole process of booking and using Louis as a photographer. He was able to capture the moments that we will forever remember and the ones that we did not get to see. I love action shots and nothing too posed and Louis did just that. He gave me a wedding album that my friends and family cannot stop talking about. He was fun and communicated with us and it was great to have him as a guest and professional at our wedding. We had a photo-booth and he took pictures in there and I thought that that was hysterical. My husband and I are so thrilled with the turnout of our photos. His style is very fresh and bright and that is what I love. I love that he has the photos on film as well and I cannot wait to see the final product. Thank you Louis for capturing our wedding and giving us a forever beautiful and fun memory.

  • First time we met him, he gave us a perfect example of his method for taking photos. Responds to email as soon as possible. He is warm and welcoming. He fixed a closed eye photo for us right away when we reached out to him. Photos look amazing. He does a great job capturing the right background and using the right lighting. Photos are completed within three weeks of the wedding. He offers great packages.

  • Louis was great! We were planning our wedding from out of town and he was very accommodating with Skype meetings and working around our travel schedule for our engagement shoot. He recommended that we do engagement photos and I'm really glad we did, we were able to meet him in person and get a little more comfortable being photographed. it made that portion of the wedding day much less stressful. We had two shooters for the wedding which worked out really well; my mom was worried about how many pictures we'd have because she said she never noticed the photographers but we have tons of amazing photos! Louis and Alex were unobtrusive while still catching all the important moments and tons of awesome candids! We're very happy with the quality and selection of the photos we received and can't wait to see our album. thanks louis!

    Thanks Marco, it was a pleasure photographing both the wedding and the engagement session. You are right the engagement session is really good for many reasons and I enjoy meeting the couple beforehand like this. When I see the couple at the wedding later on, I feel like I know them already (and I do) which is an added plus. Hope to see you guys down the road for some family photos!
