I first hired Joseph Cristina 4 years ago, and haven’t ceased to be amazed by the quality of his work ever since. Throughout all the projects where I was fortunate to work with Mr. Cristina, his artistic ability to depict anything has always created beautiful photography. With his professionalism, a flair for showcasing what is out of the ordinary, and his knowledge of leading edge photography and design techniques, Mr. Cristina’s competency cannot be imitated. I would recommend him to anyone who wants superior photography and designs that provide a competitive advantage, and superior value. – Christian

Hi Joseph, I just received my (3) 8×10’s in the mail and all can say is WOW, I’m impressed!
I’ve had no luck searching for a good photographer, that was dependable, honest and professional until i found you guys, what a relief. From the very first call I made to you it was total professionalism. Your emails, texts and also phone calls were very professional and honest with all the details that I needed, You guys even texted me your address which was great because I forgot your address that you emailed me, LOL! Fabiola, was a total pro with the make up and made me feel very comfortable! Long story short, you guys are 100 percent professional!

Joseph and Fabiola made me feel so comfortable during my photo session. I was really nervous when I got there and didn’t know what to expect but they immediately made me feel at ease. Fabiola did a fantastic job on my makeup and hair. I didn’t know I could look that modern and have so many different looks. She has great attention to detail. They are a great team. Joseph gave me a lot of good hints how to get a different look (basically to think of something funny or serious) to make the expression on my face more real. After my session they showed me more of their work and it is absolutely beautiful. I am very happy with my session and how my pictures turned out. Thank you so much Allure Multimedia. – Patti

I had talked to over a dozen photographers to take my headshots, but after speaking to Joseph I could tell I needed to look no further. For headshots, most photographers have a limit to the number of ‘looks’ or wardrobe changes you can do during the shoot (usually its 2 or 3 looks) and/or they put a time limit on the shoot (1 or 2 hours). Allure Multimedia however, had no limit and Joseph offered me a great price for a photo package that I couldn’t say no to. The only downside is Allure keeps the rights to the photos and you can only get prints through them. But they compensate for this by giving a CD with all of the photos on file as web quality. During the shoot Joseph was above and beyond helpful. Often capturing what I was looking for and then going the extra step to put in his own creative input. For example, my hair is sort of an orange color and Joseph observed something like.’If I back light here, it really makes your hair pop. Why don’t we try that with this outfit?’ and so on and so forth. After about 10 ‘looks’, various lighting set ups, and hundreds of angles, I walked away with about 100 good photos to choose from. The entire shoot was professional, friendly, and just a great deal. Thank you so much!
Fabiola and Joseph were so patient in giving me all the details of my session over the phone. When I arrived for my session they both made me feel very comfortable and guided me through the whole process. Fabiola did a great job with my hair and makeup! Joseph spent an extended amount of time making sure he got all the right shots! I knew I was in good hands and trusted them all the way! My photos are absolutely beautiful as a result of both their hard work and talents. I’m sure my fiancée will love them all! Great job!!

Working with Joseph and Fabiola exceeded my expectations. I guess it has something to do with my bad experiences in the past. I did quite a few photo shoots, but I was never satisfied with the final result, because photographers were creating something else from me, but not revealing my true self. I think the job of a photographer is to emphasize the best things in you and to hide your weaknesses. I think both Joseph and Fabiola achieved that goal. They were extremely professional, efficient and what I loved most about them, they truly enjoyed what they were doing and they put all their heart into it. I enjoyed the atmosphere, because it was very relaxing, friendly, and inspiring. Isn’t it the key for a great photo shoot? I would absolutely work with them again, because I loved their fast pace approach, the energy in the room, absolutely stunning results, and great memories that will remain with me forever.

Allure Multimedia delivered on its promise of a classy versus trashy boudoir photo shoot experience. I was nervous and camera shy which soon dissipated and I felt comfortable working with Joseph and Fabiola as they are experienced professionals with your best look in mind.

I didn’t know what to expect when I started researching photographers for a boudoir shoot. I was nervous about the entire process, but from the first phone call to Joseph I felt at ease. The communication was great from then on – I always received prompt responses to emails or phone calls, and he was more than willing to answer any questions I had. On the day of the shoot I was SO nervous! But once I arrived, Joseph and his wife Fabiola made me feel completely at ease. There was never any moment when I felt uncomfortable or weird, something I most definitely expected. Fabiola’s hair and make up job was absolutely fantastic. I remember looking in the mirror and thinking, wow, I didn’t know I could look this good! LOL I don’t really think I photograph well, and was wondering about just how many pictures I would actually like. Well, after receiving my proofs, I’m having a hard time not selecting all of them!!! Really, the photos are so far above what I expected I can’t even describe it. This was such a fun experience and I am so happy with the finished products. I would give my highest recommendation to Joseph and Fabiola. Thank you, thank you, thank you for such beautiful photos!!!

I wanted to write you and say thank you for your incredible artistic vision and talent. The quality of your work is absolutely amazing. The engagement shots you captured of us on September 20th were truly captivating. Every photo is so meaningful and real to Derick and I.
Since the moment I started planning our wedding, one of the most important things to me was to have an excellent one of a kind photographer. I wanted to make sure that we would have wonderful pictures to last us a lifetime of memories. From the first conversation I had with you and that first glance of your portfolio I knew that you were a perfect match for us. Everything from the package price to promptness to quality to just the sound of your voice and the feelings I got while speaking with you exceeded my every expectation!
Honestly, we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer to photograph Derick and I. Not only are you professional but so personable and fun. Your personality truly helped us relax on the day of our engagement shots as we were both very nervous. Your energy made you a joy to work with and the impressive photos you shot were just what we wanted and asked you for! After viewing these photos for the first time both Derick and I had permanent smiles on our faces. We have so many favorite pictures that we literally cannot choose just one to be our favorite. I must look at these photos again and again in amazement at how wonderful they look. I have never been one to love photos of myself but you really captured a beauty in me that I so desperately needed to see of myself. I look at these photos and see not only the love Derick and I feel for one another but how beautiful I really am. Thank you for this, you are truly an inspiration. I must say that your work has us very excited about you shooting our upcoming wedding. I not only have all the confidence in the world in you but I’m also truly honored to have such a talented and artistic gentleman be a part of our special day.
I can’t thank you enough, Joseph. You are truly one in a million!!!!!!!
Where to begin, all I have to say is, wow what a difference. I am a bride to be, who was looking for a sensual, yet classy, bridal boudoir photography for my soon to be husband. I have never in my life taken professional photos, so I was a bit nervous and after a brief search online, I found (what I considered at the time) the BEST deal. Boy was I wrong. After a long drive, I arrived at this studio, and began to undress. I had nothing to compare it to, so to me the weird, uneasy feeling of these strange and unnatural poses, was well probably normal. When the hour session was finished, he allowed me to look at the pictures, I was mortified. The pictures showed EXACTLY what I felt, unnatural, uneasy, weird, insecure look. At this point I thought it was just me, I just should’ve done better. So I wanted to try again, and perhaps force myself to be a bit more sexy. I searched more thoroughly and close by I found “Allure Multimedia” after immediate response from Joe, I was ready to shoot again. Upon arrival I met his gorgeous wife Fabiola, (AMAZING at what she does), who took care of my makeup and hair. I instantly felt as if I had known them my whole life, and I opened up like never before. The comfortable, yet professional atmosphere was amazing. It was a complete opposite feeling of what I had experienced before. We were joking, laughing, and the best part everything was so natural. They both directed the shoot, and made me feel as relaxed as possible. Words can not describe the attention and courtesy I was given. After seeing my pictures, WOW what a difference. The emotions really shown through, who was this classy, natural, sexy girl!? Even after the shoot, the communication remains the same. Joe was very helpful in accommodating my budget and making sure I got everything I wanted. I have no complaints, and in fact will be recommending him to all of my friends. My only regret is not going to him first, he is worth EVERY DOLLAR!
Thanx Joe & Fabiola!!

I had never sat for a professional photo shoot before I arrived at your studio. I was so very nervous about everything. I was told not to worry about make-up or hair that Fab had everything, but as a female I had to wonder, “Is she going to have the right colors? Is she going to know what to do with my hair? – should I bring my own things anyway?” and on and on. After dressing me for the first set, I was extremely impressed and perfectly at ease. I had never looked better! You guys are true professionals and incredible artists. Thank you so much for the amazing photos! It was such a memorable experience. I can’t wait to do it again. I am telling all of my friends about you.
You are both FAB!!

Joseph Cristina from Allure Multimedia, LLC is a pleasure to work with. Not only does he have a keen eye for detail, he steps out the box using a unique energy and creativity in all his shots! His work is tremendous. I have utilized his services for several charity events since 2006 and am thrilled with the finish product. I would highly recommend Joseph for a variety of photographic medium; parties, events, portraits, etc.

My child was approached by an agency to possibly think about modeling. As a parent, I had no idea about how to go about this process and my first concern was the security and safety of my child. In researching photographers to use for his head shots, I met with Allure Multimedia. The owner was very professional and not only educated me on what to look for in photography, but also talked me through the process of modeling agencies. At the shoot, the staff (owner and makeup artist) worked well with my child and moved him through the process quickly. We ended up with several excellent photos and my son was excited to move forward. The staff at Allure really demonstrates patience and takes the time to help you and your child feel very much at ease.

Just wanted to thank you for that wonderful engagement photo shoot that we had on Sunday. You are a wonderful person and an excellent and professional photographer. We couldn’t have made a better choice. It was a pleasure to work with you and we can’t wait to see the pictures (which we already know are going to be espectacular) and to have you again at our wedding. My mom has said so many wonderful things about you to all her friends that they are already asking for your info to hire you for their weddings and other events (I am going to need some of your business cards ).
Again, we are so thankful for your work and effort in making everything perfect for us, you are a true artist, simply awesome.
Thank you very much,
Virginia V. y Brandon R.
