marie & steve: mallozzi’s

Ok the wait is over. I know I know, I’m blogging this a little late in the week but I had a busy week over here so cut me some slack πŸ˜‰ I promise the images below will be worth the wait. With a couple as good looking as these two it wasn’t easy to choose. Let’s just say I had a lot of favorites in this bunch!

April 30th 2011.. Not only was it a royal wedding weekend, Marie & Steve’s wedding it was also Big Joe’s bday. I think he turned 30 something πŸ˜‰ But back to the royal wedding, Kate Middleton had nothing on Marie Gennone (now Lucarelli) in my opinion. We showed up where Marie was getting beautified by make up artist Polina Geseleva and I saw simply a stunning young lady sitting in the chair just looking wonderful. Makeup artist Erin Marzilli was also on the scene making ladies look hot. Marie had this “I don’t like the camera” line she says to me. It was obviously not true because then she got into her gown and turned it on! Seriously she was so fun to photograph, we had a blast! It was time to meet Steve and the boys at the church but since he’s a Albany Fireman we decided to use the old firehouse across the street for some photos. So cool! Once they were married we headed back there with just Marie and Steve for a few. Videographer Cheryl Lighthall of CASL Productions was grinning ear to ear while shooting in the firehouse. We then headed to one of my favorite spots in downtown Albany before it was time to get to Mallozzi’s. It’s been quite some time since we’ve worked there. I was reminded of how much we just love the staff there, not to mention their food is always a home run! Paul Malo was on the 1’s & 2’s (that means dj’n) and made sure the dance floor was packed all night because thats what Paul does. It was a wonderful day and I couldn’t be happier for these two. Marie & Steve, I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon wherever you are right now and are able to sneak off to a computer to see the images I’m bout to drop right now! Thanks for trusting us! Much love!


Was I wrong? I’ll say it again, a stunning younge lady sitting in a chair just looking wonderful. BOOM!

I just love this detail..

This gown really had some wonderful detail on it..

Oh you fancy huh? Yup.

She’s awesome..

Stunning bride alert!

Marie, you look fab!

Totally relaxed in the on deck circle.

Here comes the bride..

I grew up going to this church as did Big Joe so it’s always fun shooting in there.


Mr & Mrs..

You might remember this teaser image I put on my facebook if we were friends..

It’s hot. Pun intended.

I just love the red.. we all know this right? πŸ˜‰

Yeah Marie was awesome and put on these boots for one.. I love it!

I believe this whole bridal party is tagged in my teaser image. A lot of last names ending in vowels πŸ˜‰

b&g portrait time..

ah I like this one.

but i’m crazy about these next 3 b&ws..

This building is amazing. I know I say it every time I blog an image taken here but damn its awesome.

Time to get configured Elario style..

I love these simple portraits..

1st dance..

Typically after the toasts are over a bride and groom gets like 10 seconds before wait staff is setting down there 1st course. This usually happens.. My job is about anticipating the inevitable moments.

This is one of my favorites from the whole day.. so much going on here.

I love when b&gs dance with each other.

I’ll end with this cute ring shot. Congrats guys!

next one
