Selma and SagorBride + Groom | South Asian Wedding
We can't thank Jadore Love enough!!! Efrain, Jen, and the whole Jadore Love team made our wedding weekend a truly memorable one by capturing all of our most special moments and creating a lasting memory for us for years to come.
We had very little time to plan for our wedding and we knew that we wanted to prioritize our photographer and videographer...when we met with Efrain, somehow we knew Jadore Love was going to be the one. Their work speaks for itself, and after working with them, I can say that they truly love what they do (we love what they do too!) and are amazing at capturing beauty in the smallest, most simplest things. They are also SO fun to work with!!
I just wanted to say thank you so very much for a really memorable experience - from our engagement shoot through our whirlwind wedding weekend - we had a blast working with you guys and so many of our family and friends and other guests have mentioned how great you guys were and we have definitely been recommending you left and right! Thank you again for putting us at ease, for making us feel like a million bucks, and for having fun with us along the way!! :)
Ellen and VincentBride + Groom
These guys are amazing. We spent countless hours looking for our wedding photographer and we are so glad we went with J'adore Love. If you’re still researching wedding photographers right now, your search can end here.
Very professional people, all their services were very clear and delivered as promised. We were treated to an awesome presentation that showcased their work and we received the exact same quality in our photos. Most photographers will only show you their best work or a select few shots, which is not necessarily indicative of the quality of every picture they will take. With J'adore Love, however, they give you full access to some previous shoots with original sized photos that showcases their work as a whole. If you still have any doubts, just ask to see their albums. They expertly post-process every picture they give you, and the care and love they put into each picture will show when you receive your album. Efrain is an artist, not just a guy with a camera, and this in itself is priceless. You will be hiring not just him, but also his creative vision. You can’t say all of the above about every other photographer.
On our big day, Efrain arrived earlier than expected and immediately began taking pictures. We were extremely impressed with his work ethic- he loves his work and it shows. Very easy to work with, accommodating, kindhearted, and made us and our families feel comfortable in front of the camera. Even when our wedding was running a little behind schedule, that did not deter him. Not once did he hurry us or make us feel in any way that it would be a problem. We trusted him on our big day to give us great-looking memories and we got all the shots we wanted, and more. They gave us an absolute stellar deal for our wedding day and we are thrilled with our photographs. J'adore Love deserves the highest of recommendations and they deserve more praise than can be fit on weddingwire with the word limit. They are simply the best!
Laila and MoBride + Groom
J'adore really surpassed our expectations and helped us to bring our dreams to life!
They were patient with all the moving parts of our wedding as well as the tight schedule and the movement. Efrain every time I turned around I caught him catching our moments which was exactly what I wanted. I love how he took my suggestions of photos I wanted as well as different poses I really wanted to try! He was so flexible it was perfect!
Jenn was exactly what I needed always around to tell me when my hair was messy or needed to be adjusted or my dress was out of place, you really had the eye that I needed for those little details!
They both were a blast to work with and everyone in our party can attest to that. Finally the photo booth, OMG it was literally exactly what I wanted to complete the weddings the pictures were great and everyone enjoyed it so much! Our friends couldn't stop taking pictures in it they even left us pictures in our box which was a great surprise to wake up and see!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts we cannot wait to see the pictures and are looking forward to working with you in the future!
Sarah and BenBride + Groom
Efrain and his wife were lifesavers! Our original photographer fell through and we need to find someone ASAP. Efrain was so helpful and responsive in preparing us for the big day. He and his wife were worth every penny! You can tell how passionate he is about photography, he is a perfectionist and very creative with the shots. He would even show us on the camera when one of the shots turned out really cool. We were so lucky to find him and he helped make our day even more perfect. I only wish we found him before our original photog as it would have prevented a lot of stress!
Nimisha and NealBride + Groom | Destination Wedding
I first met Efrain at my brother's wedding in 2013. Efrain was great to work with and his photos were amazing. I knew that I had to use J'adore so when I got engaged, I booked him before I even picked a venue! It was the best decision I made.
Efrain and Jenn came out to Oklahoma to shoot my 4 day/5 event wedding. Efrain came early and stayed late at every event. Efrain makes everyone feel so comfortable and gives easy directions. I have so many beautiful photos from our wedding, Efrain captured everything (all 350 guests, decor, food, details). I have such a wide array of photos from portraits, candid and very creative and unique shots. Efrain is such a creative genius, he'll just be like "I just thought of something" and it ended up being one of the coolest photos I've ever seen.
Now my bridesmaids are set on using Efrain just like I was at my brother's wedding. Efrain is amazing to work with, extremely talented, uses top of the line equipment and backs up photos in between events. I recommend Efrain 100000%.
Rana and RakishBride + Groom
J'adore Love photography is top notch. Efrain and Jenn were easy to get along with starting from the first meeting and made us feel at ease with our engagement photos, even though I am not a camera friendly individual!
Their team of photographers/videographers at our wedding were amazing, they were professional and brought a strong crew to capture all our special moments. The pictures and video that resulted were beyond what we could have hoped for and we have received multiple compliments from family and friends. I would hire J'adore again for any of my special occassions to be captured on film as they will deliver quality images, a professinal demeanor, and are personable/easy to work with. We are so happy that we chose them for our wedding day!! THANKS!
Alana and JonBride + Groom
I have known Efrain since college and over the years I have seen his incredible work evolve. The one request I made to my now husband is we HAVE to work with Efrain. After seeing the wonderful engagement photos and getting our entire wedding album back a few days ago, we certainly have NO regrets!
Working with Efrain was fantastic. He was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process, answering any questions we had in a timely manner. More importantly, when it came to the process of taking the photos himself, he was always receptive to our personal style and what we envisioned the pictures reflecting. Additionally, Efrain has a way of capturing very creative and unique shots that we absolutely love!
Overall, working with Efrain was a fantastic experience. From our first meeting with him, we knew that his passion and love for creating beautiful, lasting memories fit perfectly with what we were looking for and we could not be happier with how everything worked out!
Hong and ErhlicBride + Groom
Efrain was amazing to work with and our photos came out beautifully! This review was for our wedding back in 2014 (yes, I know I am late). Since then, I have recommended J'adore Love to several of my friends and family members.
While we were shopping around for the right photographers, we had several criteria:
- Had experience shooting culturally ethnic weddings;
- Takes candid photos versus too many posed photos;
- Was familiar with the Brooklyn area for photo shoots;
- Was willing to listen and act on our ideas and was not too pushy on his/her own ideas;
- Was willing to work with us in our budget.
Yes- Yes-Yes-Yes-Yes . No brainer, we went with J'adore Love Photography.
During our wedding, Efrain inconspicuously took candid pictures of us two which was great because we did not like posed pictures very much. He also worked with us when it was raining outside and quickly came up with an alternative photo shoot location. The photos turned out awesome and we and our families will cherish them for years to come.

Thank you so much to Jadore for capturing our beautiful moments. From the start of the proposal planning Efrain listens to your ideas and works with you on making sure everything is perfect. Efrain came to the setting half hour earlier and made sure everything was in place for my surprise engagement. Efrain was always a call or text away and would reply right away, very responsive and helpful. I will definitely hire Efrain for my wedding photoshoot. Would totally recommend Efrain to friends and family.
Jenny W.Bride + Groom
You will NOT be disappointed booking with J'Adore! When selecting a photographer to capture one of the most important events of your life, they should reflect the tone and mood of your relationship. That's what J'Adore is for us. Efrain is really great at capturing a moment and making it last a lifetime in a photo. When you view his photos, you can feel what the people in his pictures are feeling at that moment, and that's an amazing talent to have!
Efrain recently shot our engagement session in Brooklyn Heights. While it's one thing to stand and smile for the camera, it's a whole other animal trying to "act natural" during a professional shoot. Efrain was great with his direction and over the course of our 1.5 hr session, my fiance and I became much more natural in front of the camera. Within 2-3 weeks, our photos were edited and ready for us to view! It was wonderful reliving the day through Efrain's photos. I can remember each feeling I had in each photo. Now I have to choose my favorites for printing!
I can't wait for our BIG day and to work with Efrain again!
Jennifer and IvanBride + Groom
The excitement that comes with a wedding it sometimes dampened by the anxiety that goes with planning a wedding. As they say the devil is in the details.
We were in search for a photographer for our engagement photo session and J'Adore Love Photography came highly recommended. Upon meeting with Efrain and learning about his strides in following his passion of photography, we knew J'Adore Love Photography was something special...his professionalism, positive outlook and expertise captivated us from that first meet and greet.
For our engagement photo session, we had an idea... We wanted an antiquated-industrial scene. Efrain knew of just the place... DUMBO! The day of our shoot, he complimented our attire, labeling us as his "Fashion Forward Couple." Also, he took notice of all the little details we wanted in our photos and was able to seamlessly integrate our vision into the photos.
Efrain put us at ease from minute one. We were nervous about the pictures. What to wear? Where to take the pictures? What do we do? How do we look? All those questions and more were answered by Efrain.
He guided us through the entire process but let us control any or all of the shoot. He recommended different locations, all of which where great, but he also was open to experimenting and trying different things that appealed to our interest. His vision wasn't of one specific thing. He was flexible and open to trying anything and everything that we threw at him.
At the end of the engagement shoot, we could say that a good time was what we had but we didn't know what to expect from the actual work product. We certainly felt good about the shoot but the question clawing at our minds was, how would the pictures LOOK?
To say that the pictures exceeded even our wildest expectations would be an understatement. We love the pictures. We love them so much that sometimes we have to look twice to believe that it's actually us in the pictures and not models playing us. Not only that but friends and have family have gone out of their way to tell us how much they love the pictures.
J'Adore Love Photography captured our vision and helped us create photos that left a lasting impression in our heart and mind. These pictures have left us in awe.

Adrienne and LewisBride + Groom
There are not enough words in the English Dictionary to describe how much we fell in love with Jadore Love. Efrain and his team were so organized, attentive, efficient and poised the day of our wedding. He had taken care of all of the logistics he needed to with our venue, was there early to set up, and came in like the photog ninja he is and got right to work. He and his team were on the ball the entire day and EXCITED to capture the rare special moments that are so often missed. Efrain is so passionate about what he does and it comes through in his attitude and enthusiasm when he is photographing and in the finished result. There were torrential down pours the day of our wedding, but that didn’t cause to Efrain to skip a beat. He is creative, patient, excited, and happy. It was not only a pleasure having him photograph our special day, but also a joy. It was an HONOR to be a client of Jadore Love. I have other photographer friends who have seen our pictures with the Jadore Love logo and said “Amazing Pics! Not surprised it was a Jadore Love event!”. Jadore Love comes HIGHLY recommended. You will be put at ease by the sweet and genuine spirit of Efrain and the whole Jadore Love team. Book them! You won’t regret it and you will have beautiful memories to last you a lifetime.
Karina and StevenBride + Groom
Efrain and his team are amazing!!! From the moment we met him, my fiancee and I were in love! We knew that we wanted to work with him. We did our engagement shoot with Efrain as well as our wedding photography and it was our favorite decision that we made throughout planning! Working with him was extremely fun and personable. He made sure that we were comfortable and gave us lots of feedback to get amazing shots. His team was very professional and helped to make the day of our wedding stress free and wonderful. They captured all of the special moments of our wedding and made us feel so special throughout the night. It was such a great experience working with Efrain and his team and we look forward to working with him again in the future!
Susan and JoelBride + Groom
We didn't know where we were going to do our engagement shoot-- but Efrain came through with a great suggestion to do it in Red Hook by the water. He had great ideas and was encouraging so we felt at ease being ourselves and taking natural pictures. Even though we arrived 45 minutes late, he stayed overtime and made sure we got all the shots that we wanted. We highly recommend J'adore Love and we can't wait for the photos from the reception coming up on Sunday!
Donna and JasonBride + Groom
Efrain and Jenn was recommended to us by our awesome wedding planner. I reviewed their portfolio online and I knew instantly we had to meet with them. This couple is just simply awesome! They are very talented both in shooting and editing pictures. They have ideas for pictures that I have never seen before. Efrain was the one who shot our engagement photos, family photos and our wedding. He made us feel comfortable from the start. He never made us feel that he was in a hurry to take our pictures and just “get it over with”-mind you, during one of our sessions with him- our family photo shoot at central park, we had 12 people (3 families) with kids and we got great, quality pictures (we now feel stupid spending $500+++ on family photo shoots at JC Penney stores every year when we spent way less money with J'adore Love and got 1000x better quality than cookie cutter studio pics)!
I cannot stress enough how awesome Efrain and his team was on our wedding day! He reassured us from the start that he was there for us no matter what the task was. (True enough, in a funny twist of things, we both didn't have our vows on us during the ceremony and Efrain was of course there to the rescue, he ran and grabbed our vows for us and saved the day ;)) His team stayed an hour or two later than they were paid for and he didn't even want to bill us for it! Talk about awesome service and dedication to their craft!!! And I haven't even mentioned the quality of pictures you will be getting from this vendor! Book them if you don't want to have to worry about whether you're getting quality service and pictures to last you a lifetime! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and now we are sure to remember that day for the rest of our lives because J'adore Love Photography is leaving us with pictures that will last a lifetime!! We cannot thank you enough Efrain and Jenn!!!
Michelle and DerrickBride + Groom
Efrain was recommended to us by our good friends, and we are very happy we chose them! We had our engagement shoot with efrain, and it was awesome. Even though the area we chose to do it in was under renovation, efrain was still able to find amazing spots in the vicinity and we were still able to fulfill our wish of having our engagement shoot In a place that held a significant meaning in our lives! The photoshoot was fun and efrain definitely helped and gave us good directions. Our pictures came out beautifully and it's amazing to see how a simple backdrop like a store front or cobble stone can be transformed into something amazing. We cannot wait to work with him again for our wedding!
Michelle and AlbertBride + Groom | Destination Wedding
We didn't expect to go with an out-of-state photographer, but after meeting with several photographers and taking a look at their respective portfolios, we ABSOLUTELY made the right decision by picking J'adore Love to photograph our engagement session and wedding day. Efrain and Jenn made themselves available to us as much as possible despite the distance (they're based in New York and we live in California). They were good about following up on emails and making time to skype when an in-person meeting was necessary. There was a lot of communication and preparation that had to happen because not only did they agree to shoot our wedding in Southern California, but they also agreed to shoot our engagment session in Las Vegas, Nevada. How did the pictures turn out, you ask? PHENOMENAL. Efrain was there to shoot everything and he had such a good vibe about him. We felt comfortable, happy, silly, and we had a ball...and you can see it in the pictures. We couldn't ask for anything more in a photographer! Our pictures are definitely one-of-a-kind and we still get compliments on them to this day (our photo shoots were in 2012). My husband and I still talk about what a great experience we had with J'Adore Love and how we wished we were closer...if we lived in New York or they lived in California, we'd hire them to photograph everything (e.g. anniversarieis, kids, family)...EVERYTHING.
Stacy and WilliamBride + Groom
’adore Love exceeds expectations when it comes to wedding photography and videography. Whether you’re a Pintrest bride or devoid of creativity (like me), Efrain will incorporate all your ideas with his own innate sense of style to create the most beautiful, unique photos around. He is so easy to work with throughout planning and particularly the wedding day – he captures every detail of every moment, big or small, and can turn anything into a masterpiece (he made a campfire out of a light bulb – genius!). We received over 1300 photos and everyone is obsessed with them.
The cinematography is just as amazing and really is like watching a movie. Most of it is set to music but the big moments (ceremony, entrances, speeches) are played in full, as well as many behind-the-scenes images you wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The montage J’adore creates in conjunction with the music is total perfection.
We couldn’t be happier with Efrain and his team at J’adore Love. Highly recommended!
Sho and RazBride + Groom
We hired Jador'e to capture a very precious time in our lives - it was a great decision. Efrain is a amazing person, director and photographer. He balances out his personality and talent during the shoots, and as a result, you'll receive an excellent selection of pictures.
Prior to the shoots, he is very responsive and after the shoot, quick to get you your pictures.
Overall - highly recommend Jador'e Love
Samantha and MikeBride + Groom
I cannot say enough nice things about Efrain and his team! Each one of them were a pleasure to work with. I have received so many compliments on not only their wonderful photos, but also what kind people they were. The best part about efrain is he really directs you on how to take a great picture. He captured beautiful moments and made my day so memorable and fun. Thank you so much for my wonderful engagement/wedding photos. We will cherish them forever!
Elina and EddieBride + Groom
We had our engagement photoshoot with Efrain a few weeks ago and we were thrilled with everything from the photoshoot process to the final result. Efrain was very accommodating to our requests that we visit a few places which held sentimental value to us, and he gave great advice during the photoshoot. Working with him was very easy and we were able to capture wonderful shots. Efrain delivered that photos within his promised timeframe and we absolutely loved how they came out. The quality of the photos was great and we received them in a few different files, with and without the company logo on them. We have been recommending him to all of our friends!
Jessica and LuisBride + Groom
J'adore Love Photography was one of the first photographers we met with and we decided to go with Efrain because he was just so easy-going and knew exactly what kind of vibe we were going for. My husband isn't one who likes to take pictures and I was worried he wouldn't allow Efrain to work his magic lol...but Efrain made him feel so comfortable and was so friendly, that my husband pretty much gave Efrain free range to pose him and everything. Efrain has such a great vibe and was so easy to work with. Jenn was also really great, although I didn't get a chance to meet her, she was very friendly over the phone and helped in coordinating start times. Overall, I highly recommend J'adore Love Photography!
Can't say enough good things about Efrain and J’adore! We did an engagement shoot with him in Red Hook and received the pictures and they are so beautiful I am so happy with them! But more importantly during the shoot E made my fiancé and I feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. His directions were clear and easy- not stuffy at all! The experience was so fun and I would highly recommend to anyone! We will be using him for our wedding for sure!
Tracey and FredEngagement Session
On May 21, 2015 I had the pleasure of having Efrain photograph my wedding. Our expectations where high in response to the wonderful experience we had with Efrain with our engagement shoot. We could not have asked for a better photographer. Efrain and his videography team where EXCEPTIONAL!!! He is truly an expert at his craft. From the minute he arrived; which was on time, he was ready for business. He was easy to work with, works well under pressure, very professional and patient. It was very clear throughout the day that he loves what he does and puts his all into his work. We are so happy to have met Jadore Love photography and will continue to work with them for future photography needs. I can't wait to see the results!!!
Bianca and CarlosBride + Groom
We knew we wanted to work with J'ADORE LOVE since we saw how wonderful they were for my brother-in-law's wedding back in 12/2010. Since the moment we began to work with Efrain, he was nothing but helpful and insightful. Because my wife and I have such busy schedules, we didn't get to meet Efrain until the day of the wedding. However when the big day came, we felt like we've known him for years. Throughout the wedding he gave us direction and kept us focused, while at the same time he allowed us to enjoy every moment. The pictures he took were phenomenal. We got all the pictures we wanted, with the people we wanted. All the pictures were great quality, and so many beautiful moments were captured. We are so happy we decided to go with J'ADORE LOVE and would recommend them to everyone.
Maribel and DennisBride + Groom
Great experience. His passion poured into his work, leading to a great end result. He made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and listened to us. His work is phenomenal. We will definitely use him again!
Sandra and DouglasEngagement Session
We used J'Adore Love photography for our engagement shoot and we absolutely loved them! They kept the atmosphere very laid back and fun. They were very creative during our shoot and also listened to our requests. Their photography is top notch and we were extremely happy with photos received. We liked their work so much that we decided to book them for our wedding.
Yuri and JofreEngagement Session
For us our wedding was one of the most important days of our lives. J'adore love capture every moment to it's perfection of what our engagement meant to us. Then on our wedding day Efrain exceeded our expectations. Our pictures are perfect and Efrain made sure to incorporate our family and friends, he didn't miss a beat.
He is extremely respectful, friendly and most of all his professionalism is over the top. Thank you J'adore love for helping us keep our perfect moment vivid to its perfection.
Jen and JustinBride + Groom
We clicked with Efrain and fell in love with his work at our first meeting. After thoroughly discussing our vision and ideas, he understood us right away and worked with us on a photography package that fit our needs.
Stacey and PhillBride + Groom
I would 100% recommend j'adore. Their work is amazing and the entire staff was exceedingly professional throughout the day. They were also extremely patient getting every shot with a very large wedding party / family. Excellent service!
Patrica and JeffreyBride + Groom
WOW! Where do I even begin?! It's just not possible to have words alone sum up how EXCEPTIONAL the J'Adore Love team is!!
EFRAIN YOU ABSOLUTELY ROCK!! When we met with Efrain, we were blown away by the excitement and passion they have for what they do! They were BORN to do this! We knew they were the ones...
I was originally supposed to take pictures in the park on my wedding day, but it rained all day long....this was one of my biggest concerns...until I spoke to Jennifer! She assured me I had nothing to worry about and she was absolutely right! I just received my teasers and they are PHENOMENAL!! Jen was by my side at all times assuring me that everything would be okay and guiding me throughout the day! Felt like she was my best friend!!
We had an engagement shoot with J'Adore Love as well and the pictures were just incredible! Efrain had great energy and spirit, and made our photo shoot super fun and memorable! His vision and creativeness for pictures is extremely unique!
Jen & Josh were fantastic on my wedding day! They were very courteous & professional and very enjoyable to be around! If there was a problem, they had a solution for it!Their cameras never stopped 'clicking'!! They were just amazing!!
There are truly no words to fully describe the one-of-a-kind experience you get with J'Adore Love!!!
Do not think twice about booking them!! It will be one of the best decisions you ever make!
A MILLION 'THANK YOUS' for EVERYTHING to the J'Adore Love Team!

Gisel and IsmaelBride + Groom
Words cannot describe how I feel about J'Adore Love Photography! Their work is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. We had our engagement shoot with them and the pictures came out amazing! For our wedding, Efrain and his crew were STELLAR. They came early, left late and were by our sides all throughout the wedding day. Their ideas are innovative and creative. They made us feel very comfortable. I can not stress enough how great the quality of their work is. I can't wait to use them again!
Jackie and JamesBride + Groom
We would like to first say thanks to Efrain and the whole team! From the start of the wedding planning process to the actual wedding day, we would not have changed anything about working with J'Adore Love Photography. Once we saw their pictures/video on their website we knew we had to have them! They had various packages that worked within our budget and needs and were professional in all them meetings. During the wedding, they made us, bridal party, and wedding guests comfortable and had fun throughout the whole time. You could tell they have passion for what they do and it is reflected in their work. We absolutely LOVE our sneak peek pictures and video and know we will love all other pictures and video that much more!
