Anjali and Drew Wedding Preview

I don’t know what’s better; photographing a beautiful and colorful wedding or getting to celebrate it with friends. I’ve known Anjali and Drew for a long time and I was so happy to be a part of their wedding day, capturing all the special moments as they became man and wife at the Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon, Virginia. They also had a lovely bride making ceremony the night before the wedding at Anjali’s parents house where friends and family got to share in this tradition.

And you can’t beat the stunning array of vibrant colors and rich culture that comes with an Indian wedding. Moments like the bride cutting the coconut, or the groom leading her by the hand as they walked around their wedding altar stand out as amazing memories. Everyone had an incredible time and I had just as incredible a time capturing all of it. Enjoy the photos!

Blodorn Wedding Preview #SagHarborLove

Well, I had an absolutely amazing time this past weekend photographing the wedding of the year! Beautiful bride Ann Marie married her sweetie, Andrew, in Sag Harbor, NY and I was lucky enough to capture all the incredible moments. From getting ready to cutting the cake there was so much love and happiness. The bride had everyone using the hashtag, #SagHarborLove and that was exactly what we captured throughout the day in local spots like Long Beach, Main Street in front of the big Sag Harbor theater marquee, the Corner Bar, the beach by the Windmill, and finally B. Smith’s for the reception.

But I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Congrats Andrew and Ann Marie!!!

Lazar Wedding Preview, a set on Flickr.

Here’s a small preview from my most recent wedding. Held at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk, New York on June 8th, this Hamptons beach wedding was a lot of fun to photograph!

In the first two images my bride and groom wanted to recreate the pose of their wedding cake topper. I happily obliged and I think we got a really sweet and memorable result!

The others include the bridal party posing on the beach, the beautiful jars after the couple’s unity sand ceremony, their wedding rings, and a proud father walking his daughter down the aisle!

Here’s a preview from a wedding I photographed this evening. The couple was so great to work with and I loved their fun and creative choices for their wedding.

The colors absolutely popped throughout and the choice use of Star Wars figures in addition to the flowery decorations was great! Congrats to the newlyweds!

Whoa! What happened to PeteLabrozzi.com!? BIG Update!

Pete Labrozzi Media and Photography LogoIf you’ve popped by my website since yesterday, you’ll have noticed that things are looking a bit different! That’s because PeteLabrozzi.com is now a landing page for several facets of my business!

I started my business back in 2010 as Pete Labrozzi Media, a full service digital media provider. The strongest portion of what I’ve done since then has definitely been my photography. I’ve taken to calling that wing of the business, Pete Labrozzi Photography.

At some point in-between I created a new mini-site specifically for wedding photography (weddings.petelabrozzi.com). I thought it would be a helpful place for brides and grooms to go and see just what it was they were looking for without searching through the rest of my extensive portfolio first! That worked out incredibly well, but something was still missing.

The truth is that my photography end of the business accounts for so much of what I do that it got too big for its britches. I decided it really needed its own place separate of the ‘Media’ portion of my site.

Hence, photography.petelabrozzi.com was born. as well as media.petelabrozzi.com. Linking all three together is the classic PeteLabrozzi.com. PeteLabrozzi.com now serves as an entry portal to all three sites, making it easier for you to find what it is you’re looking for. media.petelabrozzi.com is now the classic version of PeteLabrozzi.com, which will be updated with more examples of graphic design, web design and more over time.

And the all new photography.petelabrozzi.com serves as the site it always should have been. It contains my current portfolio and is well set up for future additions. It’s also easier to navigate than ever before.

So check out the new sites and updates and let me know what you think! Enjoy!

Site update: FAQ Section Added to Weddings Site

Just wanted to drop a quick note about an update to the Pete Labrozzi Photography Weddings site. I added a new Frequently Asked Questions section to help make more information about my services readily available.

I don’t have too much to say about it that I haven’t said in it, so head on over and check it out! If you have any other general questions you think I missed, let me know and I may add them! Thanks!

Pete Labrozzi Photography Weddings – FAQ

P.S. Of note: the picture you’ll see on the new FAQ page is a lovely lady named Rachel who I recently photographed when her fiancé, Adam, proposed to her. Look out for a blog post about them soon!

Celebrating Marriage Equality in New York Contest!

Celebrating Marriage Equality in New York ContestHi everyone! Recently I have been feeling extra proud to be a born and raised New Yorker. As many of you know by now, New York recently became the 6th state to pass a bill legalizing gay marriage.

While I myself am not gay, I have many friends and even relatives who are and have always shared their feelings on the inequality of barring their rights to marry whoever it is they love. In my opinion, love is love, and no one should be treated any differently based on anything from the color of their skin to their sexual orientation.

So with that in mind I am offering a contest in celebration of this historical legislature. I am offering a wedding photography package to one lucky couple. The contest is open to all couples, gay and straight alike and will run from today through July 24th. A winner will be randomly chosen and announced on July 25th to coincide with the first day marriage licenses will be made available to gay couples here in New York.
