Friendly, calm and professional!

Working with Gabelli studios was a great experience. All three providers were professional, friendly and calm. They made everyone feel at ease. They worked with us to ensure we obtained all the photography coverage we requested and willing to work outside the box.

The BEST in the business! Hire them if you can!

There were many places I wanted to save when planning my wedding and the only thing I refused to change was my photographer. Gabelli Studios is the BEST in the business. John, Jim and Josh were AMAZING!! They helped set the tone for the whole day. The day turned out perfectly, John and team kept us on schedule. The team helped pose us and made me, my husband and everyone in the wedding party feel relaxed. If you can book them for your wedding DO IT NOW!

SO MUCH more than just photography

I cannot BEGIN to explain how amazing John and the team were! Working with the team from Gabelli studios was so much fun! Our bridal party could not believe how easy going and fun it was to take pictures. The guests had so much fun interacting with the team and cannot stop talking about it. They were all simply wonderful. Usually photographers and videographers fall to the background and are rarely noticed, but the team truly made our wedding so much fun by the way they interacted with the guests. They did not just capture beautiful memories but also helped to make them!
