About Photos by F.A. Formica

How to select a wedding photographer!

In her book " It’s My Wedding and I’ll Cry if I want to,” Leslie Milk, who is the lifestyle editor of the Washingtonian, gives the following advise to brides: “Now that every Dick and Jane seems to have a digital camera, it is easy to underestimate the importance of having a true professional photographer with many years of experience. Sure, anybody can take wedding pictures. If they shoot enough of them, there are bound to be a few good ones. But only a pro with years of experience can light pictures to make everyone look good.” To us JUST OK IS NOT OK! and we have the eyes of the tiger! WE ARE HONORED TO BE A PREFERRED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS/VIDEOGRAPHERS FOR THE UNITED STATE NAVAL ACADEMY WEDDINGS.

Once again, Leslie Milk says it best. “ Here’s the most important thing you need to know about wedding pictures: Book the best photographer you can afford as soon as you set the date. The wedding music will fade, the flowers will die, and you won’t even remember if you ate, let alone what you ate, at the reception. But the wedding pictures last forever.”

As the first part of developing a personal connection and develop trust. I would like to offer you and your partner a free engagement session with no obligation on your part to book with us. Here is why! All things being equal, people do business with, and refer business to those people they know, like and trust.

My Company Photos by F.A. Formica http://www.formicastudios.com have photographed over 2000 wedding over 30 years. I would be delighted to quote you a fee that you might related to. Our fees range from $500 to $4950 depending on a many factors. Today on average couples spend somewhere between $1000 to $2000. Most of our wedding client add a second photographer to their packages as you will get twice as many images taken and from various different angles.

If you think that we might be a good choice, please reach out to us and we will provide you with a short survey that will allow us to properly price out our quote for photography/videography or both services.

The survey will start with locations information of both the ceremony and reception. Remembering that the wedding is all about you and your partner to be. Questions similar to: What thing, or things, are most important for us to do for your photography? What have you seen at a friends or relative's wedding that you want for your, or do not want. Why style of photography and editing are important to you such as a light and airy look, using natural light if at all possible, and or stictly photojournalistic. Do you wish to have an wedding album made? Perhap you only want ownership of the digital files. Sharing your target budget would be quite helpful.

We will endeavor, to target not only your budget, but together we can design a timeline for the photography that captures all of the images you want without interfering with the flow of the wedding day! Thank you ... Francis, but you can call me Frank!

    Beautiful photos

    Frank Formica was an excellent wedding photographer for my April 2021 wedding! I can’t recommend him enough! The pictures were absolutely beautiful! He captured every aspect and emotion of the day! He got every picture that I asked for. He chose the perfect area of the vineyard for the outside ceremony. He has an eye for what looks great in pictures! Amy

    Daughters Wedding

    Frank and his assistant were great! We couldn't be happier with my daughters wedding pictures and the care they both took to capture the day. Frank went out of his way to make sure the pictures and paintings he did that we ordered were perfect. My daughter and I were very happy and would highly recommend Formica Studios!
