"I worked with Photo Harp Weddings for my engagement photos and wedding photos, and during that time this team displayed nothing short of excellence and professionalism. Jose and Kristen were organized, prompt and communicative in addition to their amazing photography skills/prowess. Jose was open to ideas from this amateur photography and I think it only strengthened our interactions. I would absolutely recommend them." Jessica & Joseph
"For reference, we hired Photo Harp for our two-day wedding. From beginning to end, they were so easy to work with. Jose responded to my initial inquiry within hours. He was patient with my questions, helpful in making recommendations, and always responded promptly. He also offered us a free engagement session to get to know us and learn more about our wedding. Those photos were sent to us within days and they were truly incredible!! My husband and I really dislike taking photos, but Jose made us feel comfortable and gave us directions that resulted in beautiful photos. The lighting, angles, and background scenery were gorgeous. He’s a true artist. We knew then that we were in good hands for our wedding, and we were right. You can trust them to capture all the amazing moments of your special event. We will be hiring them again for our annual family reunions." Thu & Micah
"Words will never be able to describe how happy I am with Jose and Kristen! They make the best team ever!! Kristen played her harp for my beach ceremony and it was perfect! The vibe she set was incredible! She is so talented and played everything we asked for! Walking down the isle hearing the harp and seeing my future husband was a feeling I could never describe, but will forever hold in my heart! Jose was my photographer and he was absolutely incredible. He did our engagement photos first and we knew it was so perfect for us! His work is incredible. He is super cool and down to earth! Mario and I felt sooo comfortable! Then on our wedding day he captured everything so beautifully!! It’s hard to believe that’s what our wedding really looked like! It’s something out of a magazine. I couldn’t recommend Jose and Kristen enough! They are absolutely worth every Penny spent!! Do not search any further!! I’m telling you, they are impressive!!" Nicole & Mario
"Wow, I don’t even know where to begin. Jose and Kristen absolutely killed it. First off the photography was amazing I even saw Jose on the ground a few times haha. Whatever it takes for a good shot. And good shots there was! There was some photos taken by Kristen and Jose that I could’ve never even thought of the angles or positioning for the photo. Throughout the ENTIRE digital gallery there was not even ONE photo that was not amazing. They got every shot and everything we could’ve wanted. Now for the harp. Kristen is very very talented. It sounded absolutely beautiful and she played it exactly as we had pictured it in our heads coming up to the wedding. They were both very interactive and EVERYONE loved them. For anyone reading this review. This is the one. These are the photographers and harpist you have been looking for." Anthony & Kathy
"Jose was absolutely amazing to work with. He was very responsive and his work is excellent. Our photos turned out beautiful and we couldn’t be happier. From the moment we met him during our engagement photos we felt very comfortable. I would highly recommend him! His wife is also fabulous on the harp! We had his wife, Kristen play the music for our ceremony and then she was an additional photographer after the ceremony! Book Jose and Kristen!" Megan & Brian
"Where to start. We could not have asked for a better experience. Both Jose and Kristen were very professional. The whole experience was truly a breath of fresh air in comparison to the rest of the wedding planning that we had to do. Any question we had was answered almost immediately and was always right to the point. My wife and I actually had two wedding ceremonies. One was a Hindu ceremony which was on July 2nd and the other was a US style wedding which was on July 3rd. For our July 2nd wedding, we had booked Jose for photos and for July 3rd, we had booked both Jose and Kristen. For our Hindu ceremony, we got married at the Hindu Temple of Florida. We really wanted to have wedding photos around the temple after the ceremony. As luck would have it, it was raining quite a bit on our wedding day. We really thought that we would not be able to take pictures after the ceremony. Jose told us it was not an issue and that he would make it work. Not only did he take our pictures outside even though the weather conditions were not favorable, he even rolled up his pant legs so that he could get ankle deep in water just to make sure to take the best photos. Beyond that, he made use of the puddle of water that had formed and took one of our favorite photos from either wedding. He had us stand right in front of the temple and took the photo in which he used the reflection of the water to create a truly stunning picture. We could not have asked for a better photographer. For our July 3rd wedding, he showed the same level of professionalism and dedication that he had shown at our Hindu ceremony the day before. The photos came out better than we ever thought. We had booked Kristen for July 3rd as well. She played absolutely perfect! Each song that was chosen was played perfect and the transitions between the songs were seamless. She continued to play even after she was supposed to! She had songs already prepared and the guests loved them. So many of the guests kept coming up to tell us just how much they loved the Harp. She even helped Jose afterwards with taking the pictures. Honestly, our weddings would not have been the same without Jose and Kristen. We truly appreciate their professionalism and dedication to their crafts and would easily recommend them. Trust us, your wedding will be better by having Jose and Kirsten being a part of it." Dmitri & Deb
"In a last-ditch effort to find a wedding photographer we loved, my fiancé and I apprehensively went to yet another wedding show. The very first booth when we walked in the door was PhotoHarp Weddings. We were instantly smitten. Wow, photos AND a harp??? After 5-minutes of speaking with Jose and Kristen, we knew they were the ones! I felt so excited and relieved! Their laid-back, positive personalities made me feel so at ease and comfortable. I believed that I could trust them with their creative process in capturing my special day. Their comprehensive questionnaire was very straightforward and organized and made sure to make an account of every scheduling and photo-op need of the day.
"There are no words to express my gratitude for the both Jose and his wife Kristen. My family and I got so lucky to have find them at the last minute, and that they were both available to photograph and play harp for my intimate micro wedding. It was only a week and a half before my wedding, and they responded so quickly and great at communicating and figuring out exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Jose captured incredible photos of my wedding that my husband and I can cherish for a lifetime, while his incredibly talented wife Kristen was playing elegant and beautiful music on her harp while the guests were arriving and throughout the ceremony. I'm so happy that we were able to book them both for our wedding, and they really made our wedding that much more special!! And they were affordable compared to the other options of photographers/ harpists we were looking at, it's an added bonus that this married couple work together as both photographer and harpist to bring such amazing service to any wedding! Such a beautiful, kind, and amazingly talented couple! I HIGHLY recommend this unique and awesome duo as a wedding photographer and harpist!!!" Rachel & Leo
"Finding Photo Harp Weddings was like hitting the jackpot! Jose and Kristen are a great team, during our engagement photos and the day of our wedding they were amazing! They made myself, husband and our bridal parties feel so comfortable while taking photos.

Kristen's harp playing was absolutely beautiful, it was such a unique part of our wedding that we have gotten so many compliments on. Photo Harp Weddings was such a delight to work with, if you book with them you will not regret it!" Hannah & Spencer
"José and Kristen are truly exceptional. From consultation until end of the wedding they are both so attentive to detail and provide a sense of confidence that you walk into your wedding knowing you'll have great pictures and a great time(Harpist services are a must have add-on, you won't regret it!😊).
