Bridal Hangers

hangar

It’s in the details

Custom bridal hangers are the best accessory for brides. More important than you may think.  They add that little something extra to your gown and many brides say they “make their dress complete!” Many brides get hangers for their bridesmaids, wedding parties, mother-of-the-bride, mother of the groom, and their maid of honor. These hangers with your name are also a must-have for taking the perfect wedding gown photos! They frame it and add that “something special” to the picture to create a memory guaranteed to last forever.


Another must have for every wedding! We often have several meetings with our brides to assure we are up to date with the latest changes. During each these meetings I never forget to mention the need to have nice hanger to put the dress on. After the time and money has been spent on finding your wedding gown it is absolutely necessary to have something nice for it to hang on for the photographer.  Nothing is less  expensive and makes such a huge impact. Most of all be sure your gown has something nice to hang from.

Also, let’s not forget they also make fantastic bridal shower gifts or engagement party presents. If you are a bridesmaid or looking for the best bridal shower gift this would be a great way to go.

 

Have you thought about the wedding gown photo?  Because it’s on the top of the list for most wedding photographers of must get photos! Some old plastic hanger just won’t do, it devalues the beauty of the dress. Finally with that said we hope you found this information useful.

You can purchase custom hangers here on amazon.

Wedding Photography and Getting Ready

Getting ready usually consists of shooting both the bride and the groom. Most times we will have two photographers. One for the bride and one for the groom. Shooting the groom and the groomsmen is an easy and fun affair and they tend to appreciate that I shoot quickly without asking too much from them. Usually they are amazed when I tell them we are all done.  The groom really wants to hang out with his friends and have a great time.

The groomsmen also want to hang out and have a great time. So a quick intro and a crappy joke to break the ice is usually all it takes before I start shooting and joining in with the fun. The groomsmen usually take anywhere from a half an hour to 45 minutes while the bride can take up to an hour to photograph. For the bride we typically arrive just before her hair and make up is finished. We get a couple of shots of the bride and the make up and hair artists. Then we start shooting a few beautiful portraits close to some window lighting. I usually follow that up with shooting the dress, Jewelry, invitation, and other details I can find.

Have to have details. Something we do a lot of while you are getting ready.

Engagement Season

Engagement inquiry on our website

Engagement Season

Well it’s the season once again. The time when newly engaged couples are starting to plan their wedding and begin the critical search for the right photographer. After all it is the photographer  going to be the one that captures the essence of a lifes worth of dreams hopes and expectations.

Engagement Photographer

Engagement photography session with Jason Giordano.

Everyone knows engagement photography has become part of the lengthly process of planning a wedding. Perhaps it may seem a bit trendy.  But there are quite a few benefits to both the photographer and the couple in doing so.   What is engagement photography and why is it important for you to consider?

Stable

The stable.

For me it’s the perfect opportunity to get to know my new friends on a personal level.  Be sure you do your research before making contact. You want to know that you like the work before calling to discuss package pricing and details. Once you’re convinced you’ve found the professional of your liking and the reviews are positive it’s time to make the call. Introduce yourself and be sure to provide the date and locations. Most professionals would ask for this information before continuing anyway. There are two ways that I see it in managing your engagement session as far as booking. I’ll discuss both options next.

Our humans are getting married!

Option number one.

One way to do it is to hire the photographer for just the session first and then for the wedding if you really enjoyed the time you’ve spent with them.  The bridal party wants to have a great time. Chances are they will cooperate and listen to what he or she is saying if they enjoy being around them enough.  You definitely need to have an easy going fun and upbeat personality in this business. Another great trait is to know when and how to disappear and still get the shots you need. With so much going on on your day you need someone that has seen it all and know exactly how to handle every  situation. If you hire the photographer for your session separately you may pay a premium.  We are happy to add the cost to the total of most wedding photography packages.

Stable Kiss

A sweet kiss in the stable.

Option number two.

Include the engagement session in your wedding photography  package. Like most any purchases you will be making for your wedding day the more you commit to purchasing the better deal you may receive. Other options to consider are wedding albums, gallery wrap prints, and thank you cards to name a few. If there is one suggestion I would have for anyone considering hiring a professional photographer besides checking reviews for both positive and negative, it would be to schedule a one on one meeting. Perhaps not as critical for an engagement session but certainly before signing a contract for the wedding.

I sincerely hope this helped and welcome any and all questions. Feel free to call 973-619-5678 with any questions. We would love to hear from you.

About the shot – Wedding photography

Framing the Bride and Groom with this window at the Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta NJ helps showcase the romance of the day. We used a flash and a trigger behind the newlyweds and exposed for the outside wall. Adding enough light inside without washing the color of the chandelier or up lighting of the venue. I liked the slight tilt of the window better than straight on.

The Rings

How To – Creative Wedding Ring Shots

By Wedding Photographer Jason Giordano

Always looking for new angles and fresh looks. I’ve been concentrating on the wedding rings lately.  Having shot thousands of weddings it can become  difficult to get out of your comfort zone and you can really fall into a pattern if you are not careful. Wedding Photography is a great outlet if you really enjoy people and have a knack for anticipating what people are about to do. I’m very well-known in the industry for my wedding photojournalism approach.  What most don’t know is how much I enjoy the creative side as well.  There is always time to do something different.

Wedding Ring

The Rose

The Rose & Wedding Rings

The Rose is fairly simple.  All about the lighting really.  Here I stood with the window at me back during sunset. The room was fairly dark and a few candles were lit in the distance.  I used a 105 macro lens @ f5.6 iso 800.  The difficult part was handholding the Rose in one hand and the camera in the other.  Keeping from shaking either hand was tough but I managed.

Quinceaneras are a special time in a young woman’s life and an important milestone for her and her family. As it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. I love being invited to participate. I know how much everyone is counting on me to capture the evenings emotion so they have something meaningful to look back on.  I never see events as simply another job. I feel a great deal of responsibility to deliver an experience. This experience is to last well beyond my time with the family.  My goal is to evoke the emotion felt this evening each time the photos we view them.  I hope you enjoy.

I also had the pleasure of spending a little time speaking with Joanna Malone the event planner at the CV Rich Mansion. She was very personable and easy to like.  Her staff seemed to enjoy her as well.  Joanna and I found out we both share a love of the Virgin Islands. I having lived there for many years and Joanna remembered visiting Magens Bay some time back and how it became her favorite beach in the world.  Natasha Felicies the event specialist was also there to greet me upon arrival and quickly got me up to speed before she was off assuring everything was perfect for the evening.

I can say with confidence that the CV Rich Mansion was a pleasure for this evenings event and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful venue for your Quinceanera or Sweet 16  in the White Plains area.

  • My husband and I hired Jason as a photographer for our Wedding and we were very pleased with the results! The photographs are to die for and I have received so many compliments on them! I will definitely hire Jason for future events! Thank you for making our day so special and for being so cooperative! You are the best!

  • 5/5 stars February 23, 2015

    One of the most important vendors hired for any special occasion, is of course the photographer. Someone who cares as much about
    capturing every special moment as you do. Jason is that guy.

    When I was searching through countless ads online and in magazines, I came across Jason Giordano Photography. I went to his website, like I did with many of them, only I was blown away by the examples of his work.

    I called immediately and left a message inquiring about his services and availability. He called me back that same day.

    He let me talk and explain what we were looking for as well as the day, the time and the locations we were hoping he would be able to
    travel to.

    Once we had established he was available, he asked me wonderful and thoughtful questions about me, my family, my future husband and my soon to be in-laws. There was no discussion, we hired him and I am so happy we did!

    He continued to stay in touch with us by phone and e-mail even though we were months from our big day. As our wedding day approached, Jason called me with the weather report. It looked like the weather was going to cooperate so we could utilize the beautiful grounds both at the church and at the reception site. As a side note: I would like to point out to everyone reading this review, when we first hired Jason, he was in the process of being a father for the first time. Even though he was preparing for the arrival of his new bundle of joy, he never missed a phone calls and he replied to every e-mail promptly. His son was born weeks before our wedding
    day. He was on time, never distracted, and beaming as a new father. He never missed a beat and clearly not a single amazing picture.

    Now about those pictures .did I mention they were amazing! Amazing! For example, the church wouldn’t allow flash photography
    in the church, I would have never known he didn’t use a flash if he hadn’t told
    me. And the picture outside were absolutely beautiful!

    To give you an idea of how amazing our wedding pictures are, it took us MONTHS and MONTHS to decide which pictures we wanted to order for our Thank You cards. The variety of choices; ie: different angles, different distances, different lighting, different poses, different backgrounds. SO many wonderful pictures! Now we need to decide on the photo albums!

    Thank you Jason for capturing the most important day of our lives. Thank So Very Very Much! We look forward to doing business with you again soon!.

    Wow, I am a bit speechless. This is exactly the type of response I strive for from each and every client. Everyday I pour my heart into what I do. I am blessed to have found a passion. And a passion that has the opportunity to make a difference in some of the most important days in peoples lives.

    Thank you Traci it really means the world to me that you feel this way and would take the time to leave this review. Sincerely thank you.

  • 5/5 stars October 10, 2014

    We recently had an Oktoberfest/Wedding Reception in our backyard and had hired Jason to photograph the event. From the outset we were impressed with his professionalism and engaging personality. It was so nice to have a vendor as enthusiastic as we were about capturing the fun of the event! Many guests commented on how pleasant, patient and accommodating he was. Yesterday we viewed the pictures on-line and couldn’t be happier with the result. With nearly 100 guests and a lot of activity, it was wonderful to see Jason had somehow managed to include everyone in at least one shot. He also took special care to include artistic shots of all the decorations and games we had made ourselves clearly, he appreciated all the hard work and creativity that went into this event. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Jason for anyone’s photographic needs!

  • 5/5 stars June 30, 2014

    We could not have been happier with the services Jason provided. I engaged him to take photos for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary gathering. The photo shoot included 6 grandchildren (one who did not like to sit still). Jason handled the situation like a true professional – he was engaging with the children, was thoughtful about the photos to be taken and was an all around pleasure to interact with. W could not have asked for me – I highly recommend him!

  • 5/5 stars May 6, 2014

    I was looking for someone to take professional photographs of my intimate wedding, and luckily I found Jason on Thumbtack. He met with me to discuss the details and expectations of my wedding, and he gave me an excellent quote to work within my budget. He is very, pleasant, professional, and eager to please his client. On my wedding day, he arrived early to my home, and he began snapping photos immediately in my home and in the backyard. He took a variety of pictures, and he travelled to all necessary venues within a 4 hour period. He was very professional, pleasant, and patient with us (Even during inevitable stressful family moments which can happen at times!)I highly recommend Jason to photograph your event. I will definitely call Jason again in the future.

  • 5/5 stars March 20, 2014

    Everything went better than I could have imagined. My parents were wedding photographers for 20 years while I was growing up so I know what an excellent photographer does. Jason was professional, patient, responsive, punctual. unobtrusive , relaxed, competent, personable and everything you might wish for. He made everyone relaxed for the formal shots and that is not easy with some our family
    The quality of the photos and the artistry is superb. He created many opportunities for lovely shots all around the venue!
    Jason was flexible and easy to work with at all stages of the process. Many of our guest commented very favorable about his professionalism and his photographs.

  • 5/5 stars February 24, 2014

    Jason came to our home and took family portraits for us all around the outside area of our home.  I think that he was only supposed to spend about an hour with us, but I think that he ended up spending more like 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours with us. He was great! He was easy to talk with the on the phone and “do business” with. He was punctual the day of the appointment. We have 3 children, and so Jason really had his hands full with trying to capture pictures of all of us. He was warm, enthusiastic, positive, friendly, easy-going, and he made it very comfortable to have him take our pictures. Our kids had a lot of fun with him and were definitely comfortable with him. One thing that he did that I really appreciated was that he walked around our home and found all of these really great spots with beautiful backgrounds to take pictures of the kids in that I would never have thought of on my own. The quality of his pictures were also excellent. We got some really great family photos thanks to Jason. Most impressive and best of all was Jason’s turnaround time. I did not have to wait to long to see the pictures. Jason got all the pictures to me within a week!

    I had interviewed a few photographers before choosing Jason to capture my proposal to my girlfriend. From the start, I was impressed with Jason’s professionalism and attention to detail. We were to meet at the Observatory Deck at the Rockefeller Center and on that certain day, it was snowing and the view was horrible. Jason was able to reschedule for a different day and everything worked out perfect and my girlfriend was completely flabbergasted and amazed. I would recommend Jason to anyone needing a reliable, trustworthy, and overall amazing photographer. Our pictures came out AMAZING and I can’t thank Jason enough for capturing one of the best moments of my life.

    My partner and I decided to get married in New York on December 14th, 2012. Weeks before we went to NYC (we are from Texas). I decided to look for a photographer in NY to help us on our big day. It was hard because as soon as I sent my request, I received many responses back from people. I thought “OMG what am I going to do? I don’t know none of these people.” So I started talking to people, and I talked Jason. Over the phone, he sounded very warm and genuine. I have worked in Customer Service for many years and I can read people’s voices and faces. Jason made me feel wanted and it was like he knew exactly what I was looking for. Don’t get me wrong, it took me three days to make up my mind, especially when I have to put a deposit down (you do this through PayPal, very secure). I decided to use Jason as my photographer for my BIG DAY. The BIG DAY came, and Jason was there on time, he was ready and helping us throughout the whole process (he was our witness too), he was incredible, taking shots of anything and everything. He was with us from the beginning until the end of our ceremony, and even after, he took great pictures of us outside, at the garden, and everywhere he knew it would look good. Making sure we were comfortable and making sure pictures were good. I can’t tell you how grateful I was to find Jason. He knows what he is doing and he created a piece of art. They weren’t pictures, it was art.
    I recommend Jason, eyes closed, and if you have any doubts, well just take a lot at his work. He is a professional and I guarantee you, he will go out his way to make your day the best day of your life.

    Jason is truly gifted! After seeing his work on his website, I knew he would be the perfect choice for the launch event for my novel, REDEMPTION, in March. The photos and video he provided after the event captured, not only memories and moments, but the energy and feel of the evening. The joy and excitement I felt, the fun had by those in attendance, and even the mood and theme of the novel was reflected in each photo. Guests and other participants each commented on his professionalism, creativity, and exceptional work. I plan on contacting Jason again when it’s time for the launch of my next novel.

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2012

    I am so glad that we found Jason! There are so many important events that come only once in a lifetime. I never hesitate to reach out to Jason when one of those events are on the horizon. His vision and work is excellent. He is also willing to accomodate my ideas as well. I recently went through and purchased 75 prints from multiple events over this past year. What can I say? He’s good!

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2012

    Inspirer. Encourager. Teacher. Three words I can use to adequately describe Jason. Seeing his photos and the way he can truely capture the beauty of a shot inspires me. He always takes the time to view my photos and lends many encouraging words. In my own photographic journey, Jason is there to guide me along and assist me whenever the need arises. I am so thankful for the beauty he gives to the world; in his photos and in his willingness to help others! (Now if he will only buy me that new camera he is ‘inspiring’ me to get!!! LOL) Thank you Jason!!!

Great time with Catherine and Michael last week.  The church was St Henry’s in Bayonne NJ.  If you don’t know St Henry’s I would say it’s a must to consider when looking for a church ceremony.   Thanks again Catherine for having me. I will miss the weekly calls and fun chats.  Best to you both and as always call anytime!

Recent interview of Jason Giordano by Thumbtack

Elite Pro Award

• How did your business/company start, and what was the greatest challenge that you encountered along the way?

My business started as a fascination with photography at a very young age. I have enjoyed taking photos for as long as I can remember. I never considered the possibility of making a living as a photographer until I was approached by a well-known photographer in St. Thomas, who was impressed with the way I interacted with clients at the hotel I was working at during that time. He asked if I had an interest in photography and shortly after I was shooting weddings by his side. It wasn’t very long before I was booking weddings on my own. The biggest challenge for me was the realization that I was now not only a photographer but also an accountant, web designer, salesman, wedding director and a marketing expert. Taking photographs would consume a small fraction of my time with all the duties that come with running a business. Fortunately for me I love that aspect as well. If I didn’t it would be much easier to work for someone else and let him or her do all the legwork.

I would have to say the biggest challenge was relocating back to New Jersey and New York a few years ago. New York is the most competitive market in the world. I am happy to have had as much success as I have in such a short period of time. To have the ability to make a living as a photographer here is a great honor. Words can’t describe how happy I am doing what I love, where I love to be.

• How would you describe your usual clients in terms of status, needs, and level of satisfaction toward your services?

My clients vary greatly. Since relocating I have been very aggressive in my pricing in order to help get the business off the ground, reducing my rates by nearly half. Everyone that contacts me through Thumbtack has been getting the deal of a lifetime. I understand the value of word of mouth from each wedding I have the honor to shoot. I let the quality of my work speak for itself first, then work diligently to come up with a package that meets the clients’ need as well as the needs of my business. I rarely walk away from a potential client. I always try to match a competitor’s price. Sometimes I can, and others I can come close to. However, there are times when I will have to walk away.

These days, there are a lot of “weekend warriors” who have bought a nice camera and may know how to take a decent photo from time to time, so they assume they can make a few dollars on the side as a wedding photographer. There are many problems with this philosophy. Number one: they are probably doing this for the money first. This is a big red flag in my book. They are not paying the overhead it takes for me to get to the level of service I provide. There are a lot of costs that go into taking “a few photos” at a wedding in addition to experience that can only come from being a full time wedding and event photographer. If you have a budget, be honest and let me know. I will work with you. I understand there will always be someone willing to do it for less, but I can assure you if I am walking away you may really want to do your homework on the “photographer” you are considering. Go ahead and Google them. Ask yourself, are they a weekend warrior? Ask them. Do they have insurance? Are they an active member of the Professional Photographers of America? Can they provide recommendations? Are they willing to show you a full wedding that they’ve shot recently?

If you love my work I ask that you give me a chance to work with you to provide a package that satisfies your needs within your budget. I will strive for your five star ratings and complete satisfaction. No need to settle for less then amazing.

• What do you think is the most effective strategy to keep your customers happy and satisfied with your service?

Become friends. A good rapport is everything in this business. A great relationship will come through in the photos. I work hard to turn my clients into ambassadors for JGiordano Photography.

Stay in touch. I stay engaged at all times. I make myself available when called upon and answer all questions or concerns in a timely manner.

Going above and beyond. I have experience in event management and have assisted in setting up the venue when a group was running behind, even volunteering help in situations such as carrying in centerpieces from the car when seeing clients struggle. I do everything I can to help assure the clients’ success. I make that my business even before I’m hired. I let all potential customers know that even if they choose to go another direction, I am happy to assist should they have questions in any and all aspects of their event. If I don’t have the answer, I will find someone for them who does.

• What was your most favorite and successful project? 

The very first wedding I shot stands out as my favorite experience. I was able to physically hand over the prints to the couple and they started crying right in front of me. Nothing could have prepared me for that moment. I was floored. They were tears of joy and excitement. I had given them the ability to look back in time from a perspective neither had previously imagined. They both hugged me and thanked me profusely. It was that moment I knew what I would be doing for the rest of my life. Fortunately for me, I have been able to turn that passion into a living.

I have remained humbled by that experience and continue to strive for that level of satisfaction each and every event.

If you’re looking for high quality, professionalism, personality and exceptional service, you should consider JGiordano Photography.

Janet and Mohamed Wedding by Jason Giordano from Jason Giordano on Vimeo.

 

 Janet and Mohamed were married on April 13th, 2013. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. I can honestly say I have never felt more a part of the family of a couple I had only spoke to a few weeks before the ceremony. They were married by the animated and friendly Mayor of Garfield Joseph Delaney at the Courthouse. We visited the Paterson Great Falls for a few pre wedding photos.
