“When my wedding week was approaching…and so was Hurricane Matthew…Ross and Jess was able to go with the flow and stand by while I completely changed my entire plan from an outdoor tented wedding….to an indoor ceremony/reception, in a totally different city!
The night before my wedding was when the hurricane really hit. Streets were flooded over the hoods of cars, almost everyone lost power…it was a nightmare. I was talking with Jess the night before and the morning of to just make sure everyone was okay. But the morning came, a little water receded and it was enough for the wedding to actually happen (not without difficulty). When Ross and Jess arrived at the house I was getting ready at, we had lost power. We basically did makeup in the dark and they ran an extension cord from a car to curl my hair. Well, I just received my photos and I am in complete shock. If I didn’t know any better, I would have no idea there was no power. It all looks just completely normal. The lighting and everything! I cried the happiest tears looking at all of these photos. We were able to take a few photos outside but there were branches everywhere and it was definitely windy… So we were lucky enough to do an “after the wedding” shoot with Ross and Jess and my new Hubby. We were able to get all dressed up again (sans stress) and just take some really great couples shots. These turned out amazing too! I just can’t say enough about how excited I am over my wedding photos! I love them so much and am so thankful we hired Ross to capture our day.”

“Hiring Ross and Jess was hands down the BEST investment of our destination wedding! Prior to booking them for the first time for our engagement session, we researched and evaluated the portfolios of numerous photographers and were so impressed by their work we decided to give them a try. We had such a fantastic experience working with them, that we decided to book them for our destination wedding in Oklahoma. As expected, the photos turned out absolutely amazing!! We are so pleased.
Not only does their work stand out, (seriously, their photographs are absolutely stunning), but so do they. Ross and Jess are extremely professional and have LOTS of experience. They are very timely and organized and are able to make you feel completely calm and at ease (let’s be real, weddings are stressful). Ross and Jess also have wonderful personalities and are SUPER fun to work with!! They are honestly an absolutely pleasure to work with in every way.
So, don’t hesitate!!! Stop reading this review and BOOK THEM NOW before someone else snags your date!!!”

“Wow, Ross and Jess are great! Originally, I was not planning on hiring a wedding photographer however everyone kept telling me not to use family friends. I’m so happy that we hired Ross. Our wedding experience would not have been the same without him. As a husband and wife team, Ross and Jess are the nicest and most professional team we could have asked for. My husband, Adem, loves them. He said they are our photographers for life. Not only do they take great shots, they also are very accommodating for life situations.
My mother’s ovarian cancer came out of remission during our engagement. Ross said in lieu of my bridal portraits, I could do a family session. I am forever grateful for those lovely pictures with my mother and family because she did not make it to the wedding. Without anything else that meant the world to us, but having their great attention to detail, easy to talk to demeanors and great communication I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to capture our big day. Their work speaks for itself. Before getting engaged I never would have imagined having photos of us that are so great they look like they belong in a magazine but now we do all thanks to Ross and Jess!”
“We had several options to choose from when it came to picking out photographers for our venue. Ross Costanza Photography had great looking products and we loved their photography style from the albums we looked at. They definitely stood out the most and we are so glad that we went with them!
After getting to know Ross and Jess through the first meeting, bridal portraits, and finally the wedding, we now know how amazing of a photography team and an amazing couple they are! Both of them are so sweet, nice, personable, and laid back. We also love how comfortable they make you feel when taking photos. The bridal portraits turned out to be so beautiful so we knew that we would love our wedding pictures! 🙂
We just recently got our wedding photos back and we are so excited and in love with how they turned out! Looking through all of them was like re-living our whole wedding day again minus all the stress :). Their hard work and dedication truly shows in their pictures and for that, we are so grateful. They have told us that they feel so honored that we chose them to capture our big day but in reality, we are the ones that feel honored to have chosen them!
We also got our pictures back in half the amount of time that we were expecting so that was a very nice surprise! We were anxious for a while to see them but the wait was well worth it! We are so lucky to have all these wonderful memories that we can share with everyone! We truly appreciate all of your hard work and will be forever grateful for you two. Thank you, Ross and Jess, for being there on one of the most important days of our life and capturing the most beautiful memories we will have for a lifetime!”

“We used Ross Costanza Photography for our one year anniversary wedding photos. Unfortunately, the first time around my husband and I skimped out on photography and were extremely unhappy with the results and regretted it big time! But we recreated our wedding day for our first anniversary and we are in love with our photos from Ross Costanza Photography! Ross and Jessica are sweet and kind which made them a pleasure to work with. Jessica made sure my hair was always just right, posed us perfectly and payed attention to the littlest details which made every photo flawless. Ross was very easy to work with and he directed us calmly and patiently. Every photo he took completely blew us away. When friends and family see them we always get the comment that they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! Their use of light makes them unique and entirely different than what you usually see in wedding photos. Another bonus is that they will travel to do your wedding! They are based out of Virginia but we live in New York so they came up to do our session. I cannot stress enough how important it is to spend the money on a great photographer. I wish I had the first time, but Ross and Jessica more than made up for it. They made this sad, crying bride smile about her photos again 🙂 These images will last a lifetime and Ross Costanza Photography is worth every penny. I have already been recommending them to anyone I know who is engaged. If you want exquisite and unique wedding photos go with Ross Costanza Photography. You won’t regret it!”

“Ross and his team are amazing!! When my husband and I met with him, he was very welcoming and friendly. He worked with us on reserving our wedding date while we waited for confirmation of my husband’s next duty station orders (which helped relieve some of our stress about it). He customized our photo package to include the things we really wanted. Ross and his wife Jessica shot our engagement pictures. Both of them were really nice and helped us figure out how to pose and what to do, which was helpful since neither of us had ever done a photoshoot before. It was casual and fun! Our pictures were amazing! For the wedding, Ross was not available but his associate John was, as was Ross’s wife. John was awesome! My bridal party got ready at my apartment and he and Jess came in to shoot us and made everyone feel calm. It was like they were part of my group of friends. John even surprised me by shooting a picture of my puppy, which made me SO happy! They helped everyone relax and were really fun. Throughout the wedding, John was everywhere at once, taking tons of pictures so we had a great variety to choose from. Jess helped make sure my hair and dress were in place for the posed pictures so I did not have to stress about that at all. During the reception, John told me to ask if there were any shots I wanted and he was always there to make sure I had the pictures I wanted. Once I received them, I was blown away by how beautiful they were!! My husband and I got married in the Rose Garden at Norfolk Botanical Garden while the roses were in full bloom and the shots John took looked amazing!! I also used The Traveling Photo Booth through them, which was a huge hit with all of the guests. I was extremely impressed by not only the quality of the services I received, but also by the quality of the people. Ross, Jess, and John went above and beyond what I expected and really helped make the wedding what I wanted it to be. I would highly recommend them!!”

“Listen…. A wedding is one of the most treasured days of your life. If you are going to spend money on anything, spend it on your photographs! The only way to really remember your this beautiful day is with great photos! Your whole day will be a faded memory without great pictures. Trust me I know. It is my 25 year anniversary this year and my photos were taken by an amateur. This many years later with 4 daughters & 1 son it is my mission to make sure they always remember the day they gave their hearts to that one special person. Remember it is not all about cost. Spend the money because this is an investment in yours or your children’s lives. One more thing… EVERYONE IS NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER just because they say they are… Just because you have a camera and can filter and crop some photo’s does NOT make you a photographer! Ross and Jessica ARE THE REAL DEAL! They are quality people with a quality product! They care about their clients like family and make sure they do a wonderful job every time! Choosing this company out of all the ones you interviewed is the NUMBER 1 choice! Thanks for reading … Just trying to be honest and real❤️.”

“Rick and I had the pleasure of using Ross and Jessica for both our engagement session and our wedding. We went with them based off of recommendation and their amazing portfolio. Upon receiving our engagement photos, I sat in my living room and just cried tears of joy!! I couldn’t believe those pictures were us!! We have yet to get our wedding pictures back yet (as its only been a week) but I imagine it will be a similar experience. This husband and wife duo are not only professional, but so very personal. Their ability to allow their clients to have fun and feel beautiful really is the icing on the cake to the amazing images that they produce. I look forward to working with them in the future and would recommend them with no hesitations.”

“Ross Costanza Photography is amazing. By far the best photographer I have ever worked with. Ross and Jessica are the sweetest people you will ever meet. They are so personable, and they are willing to do what it takes to get the perfect shot. Their work is amazing. It speaks for itself. Im so sad that my big day is gone, but I will always have these beautiful photos to remember it by. I cant thank Ross and Jessica enough for everything they did. Even under crazy circumstances, like one of my Groomsmen not showing up, they helped keep me calm and feel at ease. I hope someday in the near future that I get to work with them again. Like I said, the work speaks for itself. I love you Ross and Jessica. Thank you again for making my Big Day the best it could be <3 <3 <3.”

“Ross Costanza Photography is the best! His work stands out in a league of its own. He captured my growing family in a way that brought tears to my eyes. I will treasure these Maternity/Family pictures forever. Ross has such a great eye and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, he even managed to get perfect pictures of my crazy toddler which is a feat in itself! If you are looking for a photographer that you can trust I highly recommend Ross Costanza Photography. You can never go back in time to re-do pictures, which is something sadly I learned the hard way. If you want your memories captured correctly and in a way that you will feel happy to look back on the rest of your life than Ross is the guy for you! You will not regret it!!”
