This is a collection of letters, emails, notes and reviews that I have received from not only many of the Brides and Grooms I have photographed but also from some of their family and friends. I thank them all for taking the time to write them.

Louis was simply amazing! He did our engagement and wedding photos and both sessions were so unique and creative, my husband and I loved every single picture! Louis is amazing to work with, and the final product of his photos are beautiful; each shot was so perfectly finished. If you are looking for a photographer to capture the special little moments of your wedding, with candid shots that show the true emotion of the day, then Louis is the photographer for you! I cannot thank him enough for all of the amazing photos and memories of our special day!

Picking a photographer for the wedding was probably one of the most important things for me. I wanted someone who would capture the excitement, love, and joy the day would bring and Louis did all that and more! His pictures were gorgeous and he captured everything that I had wanted! From day one, when I submitted my inquiry, Louis made the process so easy – he told me about the special he was having at the time, allowed me to make adjustments to my package, and just kept me informed throughout the process. When it came close to the wedding, we met and discussed the details and again – Louis was professional and so easy to work with. My husband and I had a few ideas for pictures but it was Louis who really helped us fine tune our vision and also helped us realized the timeline of our day and expectations.
On the day of the wedding, Louis was on time and started working immediately without being intrusive. He was so patient and friendly us and with my family and friend – he really did help continue the fun vibe of the day.
When it came to seeing the pictures afterwards, Louis had teaser pictures for us the very next day and I couldn’t believe how amazing the pictures came out! He continued to keep me posted of when the rest of the pictures would be ready and I really appreciated that.
If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding in NJ who is professional, easy to work with and reasonably priced then Schroder Photograpghy is a great pick!

I don’t even know where to start when it comes to reviewing Louis Schroder and Schroder Photography because there truly aren’t enough good things to say about him-We were more then impressed!!! From the minute he walked into our venue to the minute it was over, he had us all at ease and i as the bride was comforted knowing that i was going to have the photo’s every girl dreams of! The photo’s he suggested we take and the candid’s he captured had all of us talking from start to finish. Even my husband who HATES getting his pictures taken said that Louis made it feel like a walk in the park. My one bridesmaid could be heard screaming up and down the hallways “LOOK AT THIS SHOT HE’S TAKING!!! THIS GUY IS AMAZING” and all my guests commented on his work. One guest who already had her wedding stated at the end of the night “i wish i could re-do my wedding and have Louis as my photographer”- i think that speaks for itself! He managed to capture all the magical moments and then some and you would not have even known he was even there. We have started to receive our previews and i have had chills looking at them, they are just SO perfect. I would not choose anyone but Schroder Photography!!! thank you SO much Louis!! you truly have an amazing eye and we cannot tell you how much we appreciate your work. ANY event we have you will be first on our contact list!! Stan & Stephanie Frankenfield
Kaitlin & David (Married 05-2016)
Louis was excellent! He was so professional and took amazing pictures. He got so many wonderful pictures and my husband and I are so happy with how our pictures turned out. He really captured our wedding day perfectly. I can’t recommend him enough, truly a great photographer!
Jen & Kanwar
Louis and Alex managed to be everywhere and capture every moment without being in the way. The shots they took captured the essence of us at our best. Truly magical.
Sara & Ryan (Review on The Knot sent 01-11-16)
If you are looking for a photographer who will capture all of the candid moments of your special day without even knowing he is there, look no further! I can’t speak highly enough about Louis’s professionalism. My husband and I barely even knew he was there all day. When we received our photos it was apparent that he was there and took into consideration all of our photo requests. Our pictures were a perfect balance between traditional head on photos and more unique photos from different angles catching all of the candid moments happening around us. My husband and I can’t say enough good things about Louis. We highly recommend him.
Sarah & Guy (Card sent 01-05-16)
Marina & Derek
Louis was a true professional – prompt, skilled, courteous and did exactly what we asked for. I have been in a few weddings since our big day and have witnessed some disastrous photographers so I appreciate our choosing Schroder Photography to capture our most special moments even more than I originally had. Love the quality of our photos and would recommend to others.
Krystel & Tom (email received 10-22-15)
We received the album last week and just wanted to thank you! It was beautiful! Each layout was so well thought out and really represented our style. We will forever cherish the day and are grateful to have the memories. Thank you, thank you!
Darren & Jenna (Married 09-06-15 see “McLoone’s Pier House Wedding“)
Wow! Such fantastic photos. We’ll treasure them always.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Claire & Joseph (Married 05-23-15 See Blog Post “Raritan Inn Wedding“)
Those photos are STUNNING! Your use of natural light is just exquisite! It was such a pleasure working with you … We are so grateful that you were there to capture our special day.
Kira & Garret (Married 09-06-14 See Blog Post “Perona Farms Barn“)
WOW!!!!!!! We cannot thank you enough, the photos were even better than we had ever hoped for! Each photo is better than the last. Honestly we’re a bit speechless!
(Review at Wedding Wire)
I wish I could give Louis more than 5 stars! We were impressed every step of the way working with Louis. He was flexible and accommodating, really heard us when we said what we wanted and made everyone feel at ease on our wedding day. Louis never made us feel on the spot or super posed, everything was really natural and he captured all of our favorite moments- and what was really amazing is he caught them all without us realizing! And most importantly- the photos were even better than we had hoped!! We could not have asked for more. Truly I could not recommend him any more highly!!!…
Julie & Sean
Wow. These are fantastic. You were like a photog-ninja at the wedding. I never even noticed you running around the church, and yet everything seems to have been covered from every angle. And again, brilliant at catching all the real moments between posed pictures. We couldn’t be happier.
Kate & John(05-31-14 Wedding)
I just have to say the album u created is amazing. It all flows so well and it’s fun to see little surprise photos faded as backgrounds. We could not be happier! You did such an amazing job at the wedding and now this final product just reaffirms that fact. We hope all is well with you, I’m sure busy season is approaching! Xoxo Kate
Alecia & Andrew(07-25-14 Wedding)
We just picked up the album last night. It looks fantastic…. Thank you so much. We love it!
Tessa & Geoff (Married 06-02-13 See Blog Post “Maritime Parc“)
We had a great time working with Louis and his team! He was super laid back but managed to direct our family during all the group shots – not the easiest thing when nobody listens and it’s 100% humidity…haha. He was great with taking candid shots (what we really wanted) and also for capturing the sunset!
We found his rates to be very reasonable and we realized it was an even better value since he was so easy to work with.
Chrissy & Justin (Married 10-06-12 See Blog Post “Stanton Ridge Golf and Country Club“)
We were up until 2am looking through our pictures- they are beautiful! Everything we wanted and more! I just want to thank you again for all your amazing work. After our engagement photos we knew we chose the right person for our wedding pictures and I didn’t have to worry at all. I think you were just about the only thing I didn’t worry about all day, and that meant the world to me! Thank you so much!
Jessica & Darren (Married 11-11-12 See Blog Post “Lakeside Manor Wedding“)
Louis, Thanks again so much for capturing our wedding! The pictures came out more than amazing and I am so excited to see our wedding album. You captured moments with out us even noticing you were there. I cannot thank you enough for everything.

Thank you so much, Louis!!
I’ve just looked at some already and they look great! You take such amazing photographs – it’s unbelievable how you seem to be everywhere at once. You captured so many details. I know my family is going to be very excited to go through all of them (we wanted to get some photos framed as Christmas gifts, so it’s perfect timing!). We truly appreciate all of your time & talent with this.
Kelly & Bill (Married 09-29-12 Reception at Short Hills Hilton)
I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on the facebook pictures! They are absolutely amazing and everyone is loving them – very impressive! … Everyone LOVES LOVES LOVES the pictures!
Nora (Married 08-12-12 See Blog Post “Dancing Away at the Liberty House“)
Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, especially when you live 2,000 miles from your wedding location. For us, choosing our photographer was easy. Louis was recommended to me by a friend, and I was immediately impressed with his talent and skill. He was flexible, friendly, easy to work with, and responsive to all of our photo ideas. I was even more impressed with him on our day of. We worked him, dragging him around in the summer heat to capture the ambiance of my wedding venue, Liberty State Park, and the NYC skyline. He was visable when I wanted to grab him for pictures, but blended in during the ceremony and intimate moments. He made my husband feel comfortable in front of the camera and he made me feel beautiful. We just received our photo previews, and they are absolutely amazing. I have only seen 10 pictures and I could not be more excited to see the rest. The way in which he captures special moments is truly an art. I would highly recommend Louis Schroder for any of your special occassions. Book him NOW so that your memories will last a lifetime, just like mine.
Brenda via email, July 5th, 2012
The album arrived yesterday and it is absolutely beautiful. Thank again for doing such a wonderful job photographing our memories of that day. The pictures you took will truly be treasured forever. Thank you.

Louis, I love every picture that I look at more than the one before it. You are truly gifted & I want to thank you from the very bottom of my heart for capturing this important day in my life, in a way that is so special & magical. I hope you always stay in this profession so that you can make a million other families as happy as you have made mine. Sherri

Louis, I just finished looking at the proof’s for Kristen and Mike’s wedding. They are absolutely beautiful!!!I always tell my kids that I love weddings because they are such a wonderful celebration of the beginning of a brand new family. Not only did you capture the love that Mike and Kristen have for one another, but you truly captured the JOY that everyone at that wedding was feeling.I can’t thank you enough for the memories that will last a lifetime.Roseanne – Kristen’s Mom
Heather (Married 09-09-11 See Blog Post “White Sands“)
We honestly could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding. Louis was so kind and professional. We just got our photos and can’t stop looking at them because they are absolutely breathtaking. His use of lighting is amazing, and he was truly able to capture the entire day through his photos. We can’t recommend him enough! Thank you so much Louis! Heather & Christian
Louis Schroder was the best choice that we could have made for our Wedding Photographer. My husband and I got married on a sunny Saturday, October 8. Like most guys, He hates taking photos, but Louis made it fun and comfortable. He was professional and responsive to our ideas and suggestions. When he was photographing us, he played a lot on shadows and lighting, making the pictures appear so artistic and beautiful. The preview that he has shared with us are so amazing – we can’t wait to see them all! Thanks Schroder Photography for capturing our most important memories! Highly recommend!
Karie (Married 06-25-11 See Blog Post “Jersey Country“)
Not only is Louis a talented photographer, but he is a pleasure to be around. Booking Louis was simple and stress free, even being an out of state couple (2,000 + miles away), he made sure our questions were answered and needs met. On our “day” he was beyond patient, unfailingly polite to all he met, yet invisible most of the time. Leading up to and on our wedding day Louis was open to ideas and very easy to communicate with, whether it be a phone call or an email he was always timely in his response.
Louis recorded the day as a whole, something we could look back on and remember how every step of the way felt. Louis delivered a beautiful set of images that capture many very happy memories – we will continue to enjoy looking through them for many years to come.
Nicole (Married 04-16-11 See Blog Post “Nicole & Matthew“)
We got married on 4-16-2011 and we used Louis as our photographer and he was great!!! There was a mini hurricane outside on that day and as devestated as I was about it, Louis worked around that with extreme ease. We were unable to go outside at all and all the pictures that had to be taken inside came out amazing. All of the picture’s were done in a timely manner and for the rest of the night you wouldn’t have even known he was there. He was never in the way, but yet every picture he took told a story of the events throughout the night. Thank you so much Louis for everything.
It wasn’t easy to choose from all of the gorgeous photos …. I just want to tell you again how much we love, love, love our wedding photos! They are everything we wanted them to be and so much more. They’re little 4×6 works of art!!! Thank you!
I got the proofs in the mail. They are amazing!!! You are a true artist. Every moment that I wanted captured you have a picture of. People I have known my entire life I have never seen such amazing pictures of them! Everyone looks so happy! Thank you sooo much, you are the best. I don’t know how I am going to pick from these for the album they are all great!
LOUIS!!! WOW! Thank you soooo much! I am in tears over here looking at these. Simply incredible, I am speechless for the most part and just want to keep looking again and again!! I have several favorites and can not wait to go home and go through them with Tom after work.
FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! YOU ARE AMAZING.
Simply put…amazing! We can not express enough how much we loved having Louis as our photographer for our wedding this past September 2010. He was extremely professional, unobtrusive and truly captured the essence of our wedding in pictures. We still can’t believe how one person was able to capture every important moment like he did and all the while went about it virtually unnoticed. We have had nothing but rave reviews from friends and family about the pictures he took! He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we can not recommend him highly enough! Do yourself a favor and book Louis as soon as possible, you won’t regret it!
My wedding was this past Sunday (10-10-10) and we had Louis Schroder as our photographer. Aside from being an incredibly talented photographer, he was extremely sweet and responsive to mine and my new husband’s requests. He was professional and completely unobtrusive throughout the entire event. We barely noticed he was there! We’ve already been sent a preview of our photos and they look like magazine ads or stills from a movie, they are absolutely gorgeous! If you live in NJ and have yet to book a photographer, please contact Louis Schroder because you will not be disappointed.
Louis is an outstanding photographer and was an absolute pleasure to have around on our wedding day (09/10/2010). We just received our proofs back and I am at a loss for words. I would recommend Louis Schroder in a heartbeat to anyone wanting their wedding memories captured in such a beautiful, artistic and professional manner.
Robyn & Adam
We cannot stop saying how absolutely wonderful Schroder Photography was for our wedding. From the moment we met Louis, we knew that his positive demeanor, calming words of advice, and sheer talent would make him the perfect photographer for us. Leading up to the wedding, Louis was easy to reach and very open to communication. Although he knew exactly what to do, he listened to our thoughts regarding each and every detail. On the day of our wedding, he greeted us (he was EARLY!) and had a “plan” for the entire day. Throughout our wedding, our family and friends excitedly told us what a pleasure our photographer was and that he was taking all kinds of photos! After the wedding, we did not have to wait long at all for our pictures. Each picture came out more beautiful than the next, and for the quality of his work, his prices were beyond reasonable. Louis’s photojournalistic style tuly captured our day, and each photo is an individual piece of art.
Louis- we thank you for everything. We can’t wait to have another event-of-a-lifetime so, again, you can capture it all!

Wow!! All I can say is it (the Album) came out gorgeous. You are truly an artist. Thank you so much!
Feel free to use me as a reference if you ever need one. Thanks again and best of luck with everything.

Leigh & Chris Shy
Thank you, Louis, for incredible wedding photos! Our wedding was almost 3 months ago, and Im still looking at the photos just as much as I was when I got the proofs. There are so many wonderful shots; I dont know how I am going to decide which photos to put in our wedding album. I am so glad we chose you as our photographer, you were so friendly and professional and we didnt even know you were there after the first few shots. I love the journalistic approach you take to your photos. We really cant say enough good things about you and your work! We will gladly recommend you to any one who asks for the perfect photographer! Simply wonderful! Thank you!!
Corinne Zenkel Frey
I do not remember the photographer at my friends Patricia and Sean’s wedding, but when I saw Louis’ work, I knew that I wanted him to film my wedding some day. Well, that some day, was last November. I did not interview any other photographers and prayed that Louis would be available on my date. He was and I have beautiful pictures to show for it. I would gladly recommend him to all my friends, but alas, I was the last to get married! Therefore, if you are contemplating a photographer, you do not have look any further than Louis.
Louis!!! We love the pictures so much! Thank you so much for helping to capture all the great moments that started our new life together…its going to be hard to pick out our album photos! I also haven’t gotten anything done at work today because I keep looking at the proofs….
Rachel & Kevin Cushing
We just love our wedding pictures so much! Great mix between artistic and traditional photos. We loved Louis’ non-obtrusive style, which made us never miss a beat of our wedding. Thanks Louis!
Louis was the photographer at our wedding September, 2009. He was amazing; so unobtrusive you didn’t even know he was there! He did a great job organizing the family’s and wedding party for photos. My favorite photos are the candids he took; he really captures the moment. We highly recommend him!
Erin Schonbachler (bride)
One of the best decisions we made while wedding planning was hiring Louis to be our photographer. After seeing the output of his work (the proofs), we realized having him make us an Album was a must. The wedding album Louis made f
or us is our single most cherished item from that day. If you hire Louis to be your photographer you will not be disapppointed…and if you have him make you an album, you will become obsessed with it! He is professional, courteous, and talented every step of the way! THANK YOU!
Each time I view the photos I see something new. The pictures truly capture the people I love in the ways I know them best. Many photos are not only artistic but very clever and you have to look for the little nuances as they can be missed witho
ut attention to detail. Louis…you truly recorded the emotion of the day and that is exactly what I wanted. Thank you!
Amanda and Rich Hendricks
Rich and I found Louis from his website. It really stood out from others we had seen. He is terrific. From start to finish, he was nothing but professional and accommodating. His work is outstanding, and the finished product is amazing. We have photos we will admire for the rest of our lives. I highly recommend him. We were so impressed with his artistic eye. On our wedding day, he was behind the scenes and put everyone at ease. We especially liked his photojournalistic style. We werent stuck having an hour-long photo shoot instead of enjoying out reception. I wouldn’t do a thing differently. He was a contributing force to a perfect day.
Kim and Chris
Thanks to all our friends and family for attending and all the well wishes! Louis did an excellent job capturing every aspect of the wonderful day! All of the pictures are just perfect! I have had many compliments on Louis and how you didnt even know he was taking the “can’t miss” shots of the day! Thanks Louis for all your hardwork!
I researched several photographers for our October 31, 2009 wedding before coming across Schroder Photography and was pleased to find a photographer who appreciated quality, candid photography rather than the posed, almost amateurish-looking pictures I had seen from other photographers. I was shocked at the price, too – almost half the price of most other photographers I had looked at and so much more for the value. When we met with Louis the first time, he was so friendly, pleasant, professional, organized, and not pushy at all (even my parents were impressed!). Right away we decided that we needed to book him. Sometimes it took a little long to hear back from him, but I attribute that to the fact that most of our communication was via E-mail, and I’m rather impatient :). The day of the wedding Louis was a pleasure to work with and I can’t believe that he’d taken over 650 pictures because we never knew he was there, he stayed well out of the way but caught all of the best moments and produced incredible pictures. My mother is a teacher and works with many young women who are planning their own weddings. She showed my wedding pictures to her co-workers and a handful of them have asked for Louis’ information.
We are so pleased with everything that has come out of hiring Louis Schroder as our wedding photographer. The experience was extremely pleasant, the pictures came out wonderfully, even better than I’d ever expected, the finished album is beautiful, and it was such a pleasure to have him capture all of the moments of that day. I have nothing but absolutely fantastic things to say about Schroder Photography…He is truly talented and a professional.
I second guessed almost all of my vendors before booking them and have thought about how I would do it differently now that the wedding is over, but I never had any doubts about Schroder Photography and would absolutely not chose anyone else to photograph such an important event if I could do it all over again.
Louis, excellent job w/ quality pictures i will recommend you to anybody anytime. marisol madla
Louis Schroder is one of the best photographers I have met in my entire life. He is creative, technically excellent, professional, and very flexible. You cannot go wrong with this man!
John and Judy Mumma
Dear Louis, You cannot imagine how thrilled we are with the sample of Kathleen and Marc’s wedding photos. We can hardly wait to see the rest! Thank you for the exquisite job! You are the best!
Audrey and Michael Wal
It is hard to believe that you could capture the emotions of your remarkable wedding day in photos. I love the expressions and the wonderful way people were looking at each other. How fortunate you are to have such outstanding memories of the special beginning of your life as man and wife.
We received the wedding album yesterday and it is gorgeous!!!! You did a fabulous job and we just love it!! Thank you again for doing such a wonderful job. I already brought it to work to show it off. Can’t wait to show our family and friends.
We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pictures! You captured so much and really painted a picture of how awesome our wedding truly was! We will be HIGHLY recommending you to all of our family and friends! Just so you know, so many people have already praised you from just their interaction with you on our wedding day!
These are wonderful!!! They really capture the magic of the evening. Thankyou, Louis.
