Wedding Photographer Dream!
My friend used Gabelli Studio's for her wedding 2 years prior to me getting engaged. Once I got engaged, I knew their fabulous work and that I wanted to book their company. John is the absolute best in the field! He is personable, professional and so sweet. From our engagement pictures to our wedding day he made us feel comfortable and we had some great laughs with him. We recently just received our wedding flash-drive ( the coolest presentation of a flash drive) and out of the 3,000 pictures, we literally could not find one photo we did not like. John and Jim truly cared about capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. STOP LOOKING AND BOOK GABELLI!!Sent on 10/06/2019

My husband and I shopped around for a photographer for our wedding and we met with John Bacolo at Gabelli Studios. John is so friendly and outgoing which made our decision so easy. I highly recommend Gabelli Studios. Having pictures taken can be awkward but John provides such a light, fun, and comfortable environment. During our engagement photo-shoot, John spent additional time with us, in spite of us running late due to traffic, to ensure he got great shots. Gabby Sebok is the BEST! She was ALWAYS available to answer all of my good (and bad) questions. She took the time to talk out ideas and timing of the wedding day which was really important to us as we opted out of doing first look. On our wedding day, the entire Gabelli team brought such a great energy. They arrived at the hotel to our chaotic room where we were getting ready and worked around the hair and makeup prep. The team is so much fun to work with- they are professional but not afraid to laugh and make the day a fun and memorable experience. Furthermore, our pictures were stunning! I highly recommend Gabelli Studios to anyone searching for a photographer/videographer for their wedding or special event.Sent on 08/27/2019

A true fairytale experience
Johns ability to photographer is truly a work of art especially when you book him for the Pleasantdale Chateau. Jim photographed our reception and he kept his eyes on us all night. When we walked Around the room taking selfies with our guests he was right there taking the photo with his camera. He literally would pop out of no where. My husband and I were so impressed! They say the best photographers are the ones that you don’t see and that couldn’t be more true about Gabelli. I cannot even tellSent on 07/21/2019
You where they were set up in church which put me at ease because I did not want to distract from our church ceremony. I highly refer Gabelli studios. They are an excellent team!
Gabelli Studio's reply:Thank you so much for taking your time to write these very thoughtful words! You and Michael have a great flare that we admire not just as professionals, but also as friends. We appreciate you letting us share in your big day!
