The moment I stepped into the Gabelli studio, I knew that John and his team would be exactly what I was looking for.Sent on 12/06/2016
I never considered myself to be photogenic until I had my engagement shots done with John. My soon to be husband and I were at such ease and had so much fun during our photo session. John made the whole process so much fun and was so creative with the way he had us pose in addition he was so great with understanding that we really wanted our shots to be done at the restaurant where we had our first date.
Christine, John’s assistant is one of the loveliest people that I have ever come across. She is always available for anything that I needed in addition to giving the best advise as she crafted our save the dates. I received countless calls and texts in regards to how beautiful our save the dates were and how talented the Gabelli team is.
On the day of my wedding , John and his assistant Jim made my wedding party so relaxed and we had nothing but fun during our pictures.
I truly believe that photos are the biggest part of a wedding and an investment since they last forever. Every bride wants a beautiful sunny day for their wedding and even if it rained on my wedding day, I knew that John would be able to capture us in the best light and capture who my husband and I are.
The Gabelli team made my dreams come true. I cannot wait to continue my relationship with them as I want the team to capture every milestone of our lives.

Amazing and wonderful!!!
We booked Gabelli Studio for our wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau earlier in June 2019. Gabelli was one of the preferred vendors and based on my research on their portfolio of work, I could definitely see why it was a preferred vendor! I loved the quality, content, and context of their photos. Gabelli does an amazing job in capturing the most important moments and elements of a wedding day, whether the moments are planned or sporadic. The photography capture the essence of human emotion in all its joy for the bride and groom and their guests.Sent on 06/13/2019
After our first meeting with Christina, who was so sweet and informative, we knew we wanted to book with Gabelli. Gabby was also so sweet to work with and answered all my questions promptly. We met with John, the lead photographer, a couple weeks before the wedding to go through the day of details, itinerary and timing, etc. John was super accommodating to the schedule and activities we had in mind and provided some suggestions as well based on his expertise and experience.
On the day of the wedding, John, Jim, and Lou did an amazing job capturing all the big moments of the day and identifying amazing places to take pictures of us, our parents, and our bridal party. I'd like to specifically highlight how accommodating and flexible they were in meeting our requests. I asked for additional and specific photos to be taken in different areas of our venue and they accommodated every single request. It goes to show how much they care about their couples and capturing all the public and intimate moments of the special day.
Beyond their skills as photographers, John, Jim, and Lou are so personable and have a great sense of humor, which is always such a positive when it comes to weddings as the day can be stressful for couples. My husband and I had a lot of fun during the photoshoot with Gabelli and we can't wait to see our photos in the coming weeks!
Thank you John, Jim, and Lou!
