We are a South Jersey based wedding photography studio, serving the NJ, PA, MD, NY areas, as well as destination weddings. Owned and run by the husband and wife photography team Jay and Sandi Cassario who built the award-winning studio with the primary goal of creating a unique experience for their clients. Having run a very successful business together for several years under the company name Cass Imaging, they needed to expand into a larger company due to the overwhelming demand for their work. In 2014, they created Twisted Oaks Studio and built a team of talented photographers that were hand-picked and trained to provide the same level of service and unique artistry to their work. Since that time, Twisted Oaks has been honored to be featured as one of SLR Lounge’s Top 100 Wedding Photographers 2016, as well as awarded with The Best of The Knot 2015-2017. There are many big differences between our studio and others with multiple photographers, but the main reason for our success is pretty evident from the first time you talk to us. We focus on relationships with our clients, and put them first. While other studios might not let you get to know your photographer prior to your wedding, we make it a priority, and focus on building unique experience and relationship long before the wedding day.
We tell your story with ninja like photojournalistic skills through the first part of the day capturing moments that you will be able to cherish for a lifetime. We like to be as non-intrusive as possible, letting real emotion and authentic moments happen on their own. When it’s time for bride and groom portraits, we like to be a little more involved where we mix in some directing while still allowing for real emotion. Whether it be army crawling through sand traps or wading into a bay, all that matters is creating incredible artistic imagery for you! During the reception, well, we aren’t done yet, we love to get in the mix so when you look back at your party it feels like you’re reliving it all over again. We end up cleaning spilled drinks off of our cameras at the start of every week but it’s well worth it in our minds!
In the end, our approach is simple. We want to provide a unique experience from the first time we meet until well after your wedding day. We want you to look at us more like a friend shooting your wedding than just a hired vendor, which will allow you to have fun and feel relaxed with us having our cameras out. There are parts of the wedding day where we will be right by your side calming your nerves or just having a laugh, and other times where you won’t even know we are there capturing moments from the shadows. When the day is over and you feel like it went by in the blink of an eye, we will be giving you a wedding gallery that will blow your mind where you will be able to re-live every moment all over again. We love what we do and we are forever grateful to all of our couples for allowing us to tell their stories and be a part of their days!
