Wedding: Sarah and Kevin
May 18th, 2013
We often find that brides are a little intimidated in front of the camera, but once they are all dolled up with all the things they spent months choosing for this day all the nerves disappear and with a little direction from Michael, they turn into confident model types. For example, Sarah, worked the camera like a professional! The nerves were suddenly poof out the window and enjoyed every moment of this beautiful day that goes by so fast! We spent so time at the hotel for our pre -pictures and from there we headed to the church to meet up
with Kevin. After family pictures at the church, we had so much fun at Central Park with Sarah, Kevin and the entire bridal party!
From there we arrived at Mallozzi’s where guests were enjoying an amazing display of food and drinks for the cocktail hour. With formalities over, Sarah and Kevin indulged us and went outside for some stunning pictures of this amazing couple! Time to party and enjoy this wonderful day with friends and family!
Thank you Sarah and Kevin for allowing us to spend the day with you! Your enthusiasm and willingness to listen to our ideas made our work easy and so much fun!
We wish you all the best of everything!

Cathie and Mike’s Wedding
Sunday, March 18th, 2012
Our second wedding for the weekend was for Cathie and Mike, and it turned out to be another wonderful memorable day!
Famiglia! That is what this amazing Italian family is all about, and Cathie embraced us from the moment we walked in the door like we were family! Parents, aunts, uncles, brother, close friends were all gathered at the house to enjoy the beginning of this joyous occasion. Cathie looked so beautiful in her wedding dress and navy blue Prada shoes! We were having so much fun at the house, but we had to get to the Church and spend some quality time with Mike and his best man for their photos.
After the ceremony and family pictures, we were off to Mallozzi’s for the reception. While guests were enjoying an amazing spread of food for the cocktail hour, we had time for some very special pictures with a very special member of the famiglia……..Frankie their pet bulldog! He was at the engagement photo shoot, he had to be at the wedding too!
This reception was non-stop food, fun and laughter! I must first acknowledge Teresa the banquet manager and her staff at Mallozzi’s. What an amazing job they do with the food and attention to detail. Thanks also to DJ Mike Garrasi from Music Man Entertainment who never fails to keep the party going all night! Last but not least to capture the festivities of the day was freelance videographers Matt and Tom.
Thank you Cathie and Mike for your warmth and enthusiasm, which made this day as much fun for us as it was for you!
We wish you all the health and happiness that you both deserve!

Jessica and Robert’s Wedding
New Years Eve
We all have special ways of celebrating and bringing in a new year, but, when you are a wedding photographer, you always know what you will be doing!
I can’t think of a better way to spend New Years Eve, especially when you have a bride and groom like Jessica and Bob! The enthusiasm and love that they clearly have for each other, made this day so amazing! Jessica looked gorgeous walking down the aisle of the St. Pius X Church in Loudonville, where Bob waited anxiously to start their new life together.
Although Jess prayed for snow, her wish list of places to take photographs was perfect even without the snow. Time to get back to Mallozzi’s to really get this party started and so it did, with the cocktail hour and then Grand Central Station welcoming the wedding party into the ballroom. After a delicious dinner, wedding cake, and Mallozzi’s famous Viennese table, there was non-stop dancing, laughter, and so much fun!At the stroke of midnight, everyone got noise makers and hats and watched the ball drop in Times Square!
Thank you Jess and Bob for choosing us to be part of this incredible celebration! You made our day feel more like a day out with friends than work!
We wish you years of health, happiness and everything you wish in life!
