A Garden Party Wedding
“My husband and I knew we wanted Two17 to be a part of our wedding day the moment we met Pete. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease as we worked together in the days leading up to our wedding. We had to make some major changes to our big day due to COVID 19, but Pete's communication and cooperation was excellent throughout the entire process. Pete and his team went above and beyond to accommodate us and make sure our day was still as special as ever. During the wedding, the team members were beyond professional as they were attentive, yet not intrusive. They helped keep the day fluid and made taking wedding photos a stress-free experience. They were friendly, and very respectful and patient with all our guests. Their attention to detail was impeccable and is evident by how truly remarkable the final products turned out. Two17's ability to not only produce incredible photos, but also provide phenomenal service on the most important day of our lives is astounding. The team somehow managed to capture even the smallest most intimate moments throughout the day. We cannot be any happier for choosing to work with them and are truly blown away with the results. Not only do we have beautiful photos but also beautiful memories to share for the rest of our lives thanks to Pete and Two 17!”

“My new husband (woohoo!) and I could never say enough wonderful things about Two17 Photo & Cinema. Pete and his team were so warm, creative, and the nicest people!! They listened to what we envisioned and their work captured every special moment from our day. Aside from their incredible photos, it was a joy to have them around. They kept the mood light and happy, which was very important for us! They were seriously stealth and caught even the smallest details! Pete and his team were also excellent communicators. The online portal makes it simple to access your information. We are truly thankful to Pete and Two17 Photo & Cinema for bringing their amazing vibe (and awesome photo skills) to our wedding day!”

“Two17 captured the most intimate and important moment in my life beautifully We had the absolute best experience with Pete and Two17 Photo & Cinema. We went with Pete after seeing the candid photos Pete took of his family. My (now) husband and I do not love sitting for photos because we can get stiff. I explained to Pete that we wanted photos like the ones we takes of his family because they were just so full of love and life. We were not disappointed. Every single picture from our wedding and reception is warm and real and beautiful. Everyone's joy is perfectly captured and the photos immediately take us back to that moment. I also cannot believe they managed to make us look so good. We are not serious picture people, but we have portraits and candid shots that are so stunning, I cannot believe are us. We also have photos that show our silly side. I feel certain that Pete and his team captured every time we laughed, embraced, danced, sang, and cried. During what is probably one of the most intimate moments in my life, they were there. They were so unintrusive that the only reason I know that is because I have the pictures I am so grateful they took. When we saw our "teaser" wedding video, I cried. Hard. They combined the most important parts of the day and the most touching parts of my father's toast. It still brings me to tears even thinking about it now. My dad has shown it to every person he has ever met (for example, our dry cleaner, who I have not seen in 20 years). The idea that I have this video to remember the words my dad shared with us that day is almost too much for me to think about. I treasure it beyond what I can express in words. By the time the full length video came around, I had very expectations, which were of course exceeded. On such an exciting and whirlwind day, Pete and his team were incredibly gracious, professional, and kind. Despite never meeting them in person before that day, they felt like friends. They rolled with the punches, kept us to the schedule we set, and made us feel so special and taken care of. Before and after the wedding they were unbelievably accommodating and patient with our busy schedules. Over a year later, our parents still have not finalized their albums, but Pete gently reminds me so that we get everything we paid for. They remain everything we could ever want in photographers/cinematographers and so much more. We have referred them to some of our best friends who also had fantastic experiences. Seeing Pete at their recent wedding was like seeing an old friend. We will never use anyone else for our photos. I cannot give a higher recommendation.”

“The Two17 team were amazing from the first consultation to post wedding! My husband and I typically hate taking pictures, but our day of photographers, Tom & Alexa, made the day so easy. They got a lot of great shots (plenty of candids!) with barely any time away from the party. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer team!”

“We loved working with Pete and the Two17 team for our wedding!! Couldn't have made a better decision. Pete and the crew were totally unobtrusive but also managed to capture all the moments we wanted (including ones that were completely unexpected). The photos and video from our wedding day turned out better than we could have imagined!”

“My husband Kyle and I were married in June at Congress Hall in Cape May. It’s taken us this long to write a review because it’s been difficult to put our incredible experience with Pete and his crew into words. Hands down Two17 was our favorite, most consistent and reliable vendor. Not only were Pete and his crew extremely professional and patient, but they were a BLAST! We utilized them for photo and video and the quality of both were impeccable. There wasn’t a request or suggestion made to Pete that wasn’t well received and accommodated. At all times there was a photographer and videographer within an arm’s reach, even late into the night on the dancefloor, but never intrusive or distracting. We received both a photo and video sneak peek within a week of the wedding which helped hold us over until we received the rest of the flawless final products! It was important to us that our vendors were familiar with the venue and with shooting on the beach so we started (and ended) our vendor search with Congress Hall’s preferred vendor list. Two17 came highly recommended and was the first photography/videography appointment we had scheduled. After our initial meeting, we felt so confident and excited that we cancelled the rest of our appointments and booked immediately! One of the only easy decisions we made while planning. In recapping our wedding day with our guests, countless had asked us to remind them what our personal relationship with Pete was. We explained that prior to hiring him for our wedding it was strictly a professional relationship. The camaraderie between us, Pete and his crew was so natural and effortless that our guests assumed we were long-time friends…which we now consider ourselves to be ;). We’ve both been a part of several other weddings/bridal parties and we can confidently say that no one compares. Look no further, Two17 is your crew!”

“We hired Pete and team for our wedding this past September. We went back and forth on the need for videography and in the end I am so, so happy we decided to go for it! Pete and his team were so professional throughout. I had one call with Pete to discuss our wedding and I could tell he was the perfect mix of professional and also super easy to work with. We booked Pete immediately. Thankfully Pete had worked with our wedding planner a bunch before so I only needed to have one more quick convo with him before the wedding, and otherwise he was all set!! Pete and team showed up to the house to film while the girls were getting ready. They weren't in the way at all and got some really cool shots of us all just having candid moments. Once we got to the venue we immediately went into our first look at private vows. Pete and team worked so well with our photographer to make sure they had all the angles they needed covered. Our two minute video from Pete we received at the end largely focused around this private vow exchange and I still cry when I watch it!! He did such an excellent job catching us in our true moments and also mixed in some of our vow audio with shots of us laughing and joking through the first look. I couldn't have asked for more - except maybe more time - consider upgrading your teaser video package :) Book Pete and team if you're considering it. He's great to work with and provides an excellent end product!!”

“Pete from Two17Photo was fantastic. Not only were the pictures and albums beautiful, but he also helped us plan out the day to make sure we had time to get in all of our pictures while still having time to enjoy cocktail hour ourselves. The photo booth was a hit, and we were able to use part of the venue itself as the back drop. He helped make sure we got every photo we wanted from the formal family shots to a group photo of every person there to staying and capturing the excitement on the dance floor through to the end. Pete was a joy to work with, was very helpful, and gave us some beautiful photos.”

“Pete and his team were a dream to work with from the very beginning. They captured our wedding exactly how we requested. From our first meeting at Pete's home office, he listened to all of our crazy requests and made them all a reality. Our wedding was at a family property and although there was a threat of rain all day, we lucked out. The team was fabulous in the humidity and crazy games the sun and clouds played ... we opted for video and the photo booth as well. The team stayed until the very end and you could tell they enjoyed what they were doing and worked well together. We would highly recommend them to anyone who wants your wedding captured perfectly!!”

“Pete made myself and my husband feel so comfortable with the full day of photos. We had a blast shooting together. Everyone that I show the photos to are BEYOND impressed. He captured all of the little details and all of the special moments. Although Pete has shot at my venue of Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ before, he went along with all of the spots I had in mind. Pete is someone that has an artistic eye without having to give lots of direction. He saw a spot and the perfect lighting and went with it! His turn around time was beyond impressive! I had some photos within 3 days of the wedding! The entire album was viewable after only a few weeks! Many of my family and guests commented to me on how kind and sociable he was.”

“We LOVED working with Two17 Photo & Cinema!!! Pete and his team have a unique ability to make you feel like no one is even there capturing your special day. He truly has an amazing talent of making you feel right at home/like you have been friends forever. We had the chance to learn about Pete and his work through a friend. Let me just say it was the best connection we made!!! Pete is professional, enthusiastic and quick to respond. He made some of the most stressful parts of wedding planning completely stress free with his flexibility and ability to really be able to bounce off idea's to make sure our wedding photo's were everything we dreamed of. We are so happy with our album and our photo's we will be enlisting Pete to capture more very special moments in our life. If you are looking for a photographer to truly capture your wedding day!!! Pete & Two17 is the way to go!”

“Thank you for being a part of our big day. We are so happy we chose you to photograph our wedding - throughout the whole process, you have been super responsive, helpful and just pleasant to work with. Even though we hadn't met before the day of the wedding, Alan and I both found it easy and comfortable to interact with you and it definitely helped us feel more relaxed while being photographed. We are thrilled with the pictures! One of the reasons we hired you is because we felt that your photos really capture genuine human moments and emotions. That's certainly true for our wedding photos :)”

The fact that they both were so great about the set-up for our secret first look and then added it to the teaser!? Oh. my. goodness! Cody and I could not have been happier having them on our special day. It was a pleasure working with you and your team.”
