    Amazing People, Amazing Experience

    The entire Gabelli team was fantastic. We knew we were in luck when we saw the beautiful engagement photos. On top of that, the other camera men were all a blast. Not only did they take great photos, they all made the wedding enjoyable for all involved.

    Anybody would be extremely lucky to have them as photographers for their wedding.

    Happy Bride :)

    I remember when I was the future bride scrutinizing through reviews to pick our wedding photographer. I'll be honest, we didn't initially go with Gabelli because we were being frugal and convinced ourselves that photos weren't important.

    A pandemic and 3 rescheduled wedding dates later, and we are SO incredibly relieved to have ditched our original photographer and go with Gabelli! If I'd had known how great my wedding day would flow because of John Bacolo & his team, we probably would have gone with a more expensive package!!!

    Your wedding photos and videos are going to be the only things that you have to look back on. The wedding day flies by and you'll want those memories materialized and immortalized. I can't wait for our photos and videos to come back, but it's great having faith that you know they will be amazing, that you can relax on your day knowing they're capturing everything meaningful, and you'll have months and years of hard work & planning symbolized in photos to prove it! So seriously...stop stressing yourself out & do yourself a favor and go with Gabelli Studio!!!

    P.S. Coordinating with Gabby leading up to the wedding day (7/25/21) was extremely helpful. Not only do you need a great photo & video team, but you need someone who will respond to your questions and call you back when you have concerns.

    They're the best. HANDS DOWN!

    A thankful newlywed
