Scott is one of the kindest, most passionate, and most talented photographers you’ll ever meet. With him, it’s MUCH more than pictures…it’s art. He has a very rare talent and you can see it whenever you look at any pictures he’s taken. When you are looking for a photographer to capture your big day, you’re look for someone who knows how to be at the right places at the right time, who takes stellar high quality pictures with great equipment, who understand a lot about what it takes to capture these moments perfectly, who is easy and fun to work with, and who truly and sincerely cares about you and what you want. You get all of that with Scott, and much more. From the moment we went to his studio to meet him, we could tell how talented he was and how much he cared. His studio is setup wonderfully for consultations and so you can see all of his work, both in albums and on the walls. He talks to you about how you want things to go, gets to know you, and answers anything you could possibly come up with for questions. He also is willing to answers questions or help out along the way and always has great ideas or resolutions for things. One big thing that is great, he has an extra shooter with him which he said is important because he can only capture so much in terms of angles or sides of your wedding as it’s happening. So he has a second shooter to capture the other side as well (for instance, he can get our reactions as we exchange rings, while his second shooter can get our families reactions). He’s extremely punctual and I’ve never seen someone so passionate or willing to go the extra length for a great shot. We got married at Zukas Hilltop Barn and Scott, in all seriousness, at times was laying down on his side in long grass or on his back in dirt JUST to get amazing shots. And yes, he had a suit on this whole time! That’s devotion. Our photos were absolutely breathtaking. He professionally touches up dozens of his/your favorite shots, and then fixes a ton of others as well and his turnaround is EXTREMELY QUICK. I’ve had friends wait months for theirs. Scott had our main ones done within a week, the second batch within 2 weeks, and the whole entire set of pics in less than 3, uploaded to DropBox and sent via mail on a USB. He’s very easy to work with and is a great professional photographer. There isn’t a person in the world we would have rather had as our photographer than Scott. He could be charging 4 times what he charges now and you would still be getting an amazing deal. His rates are absolutely incredible to start with, but then when you end up experiencing the service and see the photos you end up getting, you’re left in amazement for the value of it all. I couldn’t recommend Scott more. It’s so important to have a wonderful and professional photographer to capture the photos of your wedding. You can’t redo those moments and they must be captured perfectly, sometimes within tenths of a second, so you can relive them properly going forward. Scott understands how important his role is. He knows he’s taking pictures that will not only capture your big day, but also last not only your lifetime, but for generations and generations beyond that.
The best wedding photographer by far. Captures all the right moments yet is never in the way, personable, reasonably priced. What more could you want? Goes above and beyond what you would expect from a wedding photographer: sending anniversary pictures, the amazing slideshows he puts together. A lot of my friends and family have used him as well!
Scott had photographed a few of my friends’ weddings, and when it came time for me to find my own wedding photographer, he was the only person we considered. We even changed our wedding date in order to have him be there! He takes amazing photographs that I am constantly complimented on and is a very fun, friendly and down-to-earth guy.
Scott is the best! His pictures are creative and beautiful. He is extremely professional and dedicated. Scott understands what is important to the bride and groom and does a wonderful job capturing this throughout the night.
The quality of Scott’s work was phenomenal. From the photographs at our home (coat hangar with engagement ring attached), female members of the wedding party entering the limousine, arriving at the church, departing the limousine (with reflective images in the limousine window), overhead photos, the reception prior to anyone entered, variety of photos with the wedding party and the outdoor photo of the bride and groom in the snow; were all amazing photographs. The slideshow of the bride (my daughter) and groom is one of the most exquisite pieces of art I’ve ever seen. All to their favorite song sung by Lyle Lovett. When I initially watched the slideshow it was the first time in 57 years I was speechless. The high quality of Scott’s work is beyond my description. If you’re in the market to hire a photographer for your special occasion… do yourself a favor and book Scott Metzger. It is money well spent and the high quality photography worth a lifetime of memories!
Scott is the BEST out there! He is very professional, is an incredibly hard worker, and has unbelievable talent/skill. I recommend him all the time, and my friends who have used him have been nothing short of impressed/amazed/satisfied.
Scott is an extremely talented photographer and his photography caputured our wedding day perfectly! The bridal party, parents and guests were all impressed by the quality of his work and by his professionalism. His photography included traditional shots as well as some really unique and fun ones. We cannot thank Scott enough for traveling to Long Island to shoot our wedding during such a busy wedding season. In addition, he provides such great service after the wedding as we finalize the wedding album. We truly enjoyed having Scott shoot our wedding and you could tell that he had just as much fun as we did that day. We would highly recommend Metzger Studios to any bride. Tara and Mike DiGeronimo
Scott is an amazing photographer and we could not be happier with the results of his pictures of our wedding day. He is happy to do whatever type of photos you ask for, but is clearly always looking for the interesting shots. Our photos were a fantastic mix of more artful, interesting and beautiful shots with the more traditional posed wedding photos. Looking through all the photos, you really get a sense of what they whole day felt like — he was able to capture it all. Scott is also amazing at capturing shots that you don’t even know he got. He is easy to work with and his pricing was also much below what I found with a number of other local photographers that I got pricing from. Everyone who has seen our photos has said they are the BEST wedding photos they have EVER seen, and, though we might be biased, my husband and I definitely agree. We would recommend Scott to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
If you can, book Scott Metzger! Scott Metzger was on our venue’s vendor list and was personally recommended to us by our coordinator. From our first phone call, right up until we received our wedding pictures, Scott was professional and friendly. He answered emails and phone calls right away and always went above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns we had. During our wedding there was an unscheduled surprise for us that took time out of our photos. Scott was able to reorganize our photography schedule on the spot to make sure we still had all of the pictures we wanted, while staying on schedule. Scott shot our engagement photos as well as our wedding and everyone who has seen pictures from either has mentioned how beautiful and creative the pictures are. Scott has an excellent way of combining traditional and artistic shots. He did an absolutely perfect job and I can’t wait to work with him again! You will not find a better photographer!
Scott captured every special moment and created amazing memories for my husband and I. He was professional and made it very easy for us – which is exactly what we were looking for. All of my friends and family commented on just how beautiful and unique are photos were.
Amazing Photographer!!! I was so impressed with Scott and his assistant! Their energy, professionalism, command of the wedding party was incredible. We were worried about the rain but he didn’t let “Arthur” get in his way! Also, we got a short slideshow within a week from our wedding and the pictures were awesome! I will recommend you to all my friends! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
Scott was the photographer for our October 2013 wedding. My husband and I were thrilled with the photos he took of us and also with how great he was with our families and friends. Scott made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera which was no small feat. Maybe most impressively, he also won over my niece/flower girl who is incredibly shy. We recommend Scott to all of our friends planning weddings!
I just received my proofs back from Scott and am so happy with the way they turned out. Scott is the definition of a professional – he has so many unique ideas and several times throughout the day we heard “I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t get this shot right now!” Scott was very easy to work with throughout the whole process and very responsive to questions and input that we had for our photography for the day. In addition to the beautiful formal pictures of my husband and I, Scott caught amazing candids of getting ready and the reception that we were not expecting – several shots we don’t know when he took or how he got them! Several guests commented to us “Wow, what a photographer!” Scott will be everywhere (based on your pictures) and nowhere at the same time during your reception and ceremony – he was never in the way or intrusive but still captured everything we wanted and more. He even stayed an hour overtime without being asked because he felt so much was happening that it would be wrong to leave – how do you say thank you for that? We ended up with about 800 pictures and had all of the proofs less than 2 weeks after the wedding. Highly recommend!
I worked with Scott after seeing the amazing photos my friend had for her wedding. In fact, I had my wedding photographer chosen before my fiancé! There was NO question in my mind that Scott was the photographer for me. He is nothing short of genius, professional, creative, and supportive of the client. If there is something you want, Scott will make it happen. I originally met and booked with him in his lovely studio in Lexington. Scott is a family man with a passion and flair for photography, and his studio is attached to his home. We went over exactly what I had in mind for my wedding and what I wasn’t looking for in my photos (for example, I don’t need pictures of just my shoes, etc.) My “getting ready” photos are nothing short of phenomenal. Nothing too cliche, but some amazing planned pictures and candids of us getting dolled up. After he took amazing pictures of me around my family home with the beautiful fall sky in the background. He then snuck off to the church to get some of my husband and his family. During the actual wedding ceremony in the church, I didn’t even realize Scott and his assistant were there because he was so very non-obtrusive. However, his fantastic photos prove he was quite present. Prior to the reception, we got some of the most gorgeous photos of myself and my husband, and also some really wonderful family shots. There was nothing Scott missed! From the speeches, to the cutting of the cake, to my unplanned dance… he was ready for it all. I would recommend Scott over and above anyone else in the industry. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at his website. His talent speaks for itself.
We were very fortunate that Scott Metzger was available to shoot our September wedding and couldn’t be happier! Scott is a talented and creative photographer who perfectly captured every detail of the day. Scott was a pleasure to work with throughout every step of the process. He was quick to respond to messages, highly professional, and extremely helpful coordinating people the day of the wedding. What impressed me most about Scott is how he went above and beyond expectations. He stayed later than expected, was so creative in his shots, and he even sent us some pictures while we were on our honeymoon! I would highly recommend Scott Metzger to any bride!
Scott was fabulous. So easy to work with. Such a professional. He took wonderful shots. He worked hard to please us and his work is awesome! Can’t wait for another occasion to hire him again. Pure perfection!
Scott was amazing! We just worked with him for our December wedding and he was exactly what we wanted – energetic, encouraging, directive without being overbearing, knowing when to take the lead and when to step back. He had worked at our venue before and after scouting his portfolio we knew the quality of his work was phenomenal, but his demeanor was a perfect fit as well. He already sent us a few prints to share with our parents which was so thoughtful and makes us even more excited to see the final album/proofs. Highly recommend!!!
