Our approach

At Park Avenue Studio, we keep the focus on you. Based on our decades of experience, we know how to capture all the spirit and celebration of your special event, as well as how to anticipate – and be responsive – to all of your needs.

As a full service photographic studio, we make the entire photography process easy, understandable, and stress-free. During an initial consultation, our photography managers will review all of our photography and video services, listening carefully and guiding you to a personalized package tailored to your specific style preferences and budget. They will also walk you through all the activities planned for your event, helping to establish a complete timeline that keeps your celebration day running smoothly. Closer to the actual day, our Studio develops a location and shot list for each part of the event, which is then reviewed in a call between you and your photographer. Post-event, we quickly post digital proofs of all your images to a private online gallery, then work with you to finalize your selects, along with your orders for prints, albums and other heirloom-quality photo gifts to share.

On-site, our photographers try to be as inconspicuous as possible during your event, so you can enjoy that special day with your friends and family. Our talented photographers are adept at a range of styles, and we pride ourselves at capturing the essence of special moments – in vibrant, spontaneous images that communicate all the personality and energy of real life, just artfully arranged.

You can choose between a traditional approach with posed photos of the bride and groom with various combinations of loved ones, or a more photojournalistic approach with more candid photos and fewer posed shots. Whatever your preference, we'll get the shots you want – then let you enjoy your party.

A Note From Our Creative Director

I grew up in Lindenhurst, on the South Shore, and got hooked on photography at an early age – I had my first public exhibition at our community library while I was still in high school. My father worked for one of the major airlines, which allowed me to fly for free, so I got to travel the world taking pictures. That was great experience, but it also gave me a deep appreciation of Long Island's special appeal – the abundance of natural beauty across our shores and park lands, the rich heritage of our historic homes and mansions, and, most of all, a quality of light found nowhere else. For me, when it comes to capturing magical moments, there really is no place like home.

In 1985, I shot an event at the Vanderbilt Mansion in Oakdale, and the managers liked my work so much that they made me their preferred photography vendor. I've been a professional wedding and family photographer ever since, and over the past three decades, have had the privilege to create lasting memories for many hundreds of happy couples.

As demand for my work grew, I opened Park Ave Studio in 1988, carefully building out a team of dedicated colleagues who share my artistic outlook and dedication to professionalism and client satisfaction. Today, Park Ave Studio boasts a stable of 15 outstanding photographers capable of providing unforgettable images of any event, and we are the preferred photography provider for all Long Island event venues operated by the Lessings Group. Our record of creativity and service has made us one of the region's most sought-after photography studios – and we would welcome the chance to show you what we can do for you.
