phoebe + steve : 2010.12.31 [ ANTHONY ]

What a way to end the year! Truly the last wedding of 2010! I say this all the time, but the bride and groom truly direct where the day goes. I am eternally grateful to the photography gods for sending me Phoebe and Steve.  They were amazing! There’s nothing better than when a couple are down for anything you throw at them. Snow was no obstacle for these two. Who would have ever thought that shooting in and around the Westchester Mall could be so much fun? This is why I love what I do!! Phoebe and Steve you guys rock. Enjoy and HAPPY NEW YEAR!  – Anthony

Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays and all that.

We (me and the girls) spent the entire christmas weekend at home. We didn’t leave once, what a great feeling. In all the past years we have been the ones to run around and chase the party. This year I requested the party to come to us! It totally worked out because this year I was a total slacker and didnt photograph the girls for our christmas card in time to send them out before christmas. So we figured we can just send them after. Catherine had the vision for this card wanting to make the girls up and give the photo a romantic feel. She found the feather thats in gretchens hair at a craft store and put it together with that little clip. I chose the background and of course was in charge of the lighting for the photos. Gretchen and stella did all the posing themselves. I kid you not Gretchen wrapped her arms around on her own. I am so excited about this years card I only wish I had gotten it out in time, Oh well there is always next year. The first two photos are the actual images and then I’m posting the card.

Here is the actual card:

the two photos of the girls individually are on the inside, I didnt want to post them twice. This collage of B&W’s is on the back.

lisa + chris : 2010.12.11

So this is it, the final wedding of 2010.

Lisa Chris and I have been planning the location for these photos for months now. finally after  a ton of persistence Chris finally got the care taker of Alder Manor in Yonkers to allow us inside for photographs. The mansion was built in 1921 and has so much classic architecture from that era that you really cant take a bad photo inside.

Lisa was an amazing subject to photograph, her ability to pose and her expressions were so natural. Anything we asked she pulled off with little assistance. Oh and yes Lisa…that is the biggest dress I have ever photographed : )

Chris (the groom) is Anthony Petrozza’s camera assistant and will be a face that you all get to know very soon. Anthony and chris have a full schedule next year Im really looking forward to seeing the amazing work these two put forth.

Catching up

I have been running literally for four months now, the 2010 weddings season officially ends Saturday. So in preperation I started to catalog all my personal stuff  so I have lots of stuff to show until the wedding season kicks back up.

The past few months we all had birthdays, I turned 36, Stella turned 2 and Gretchen turned 5 oh and got her second official haircut. (thats the first photo).  So this series of photos is a little of all of that. I started with gretchen’s haircut because Im obsessed with it. She looks so damn cute I can’t stop looking at her. After that is a bunch of photos from thanksgiving and Gretchen’s cowboys and indians birthday party.
