Italy WeddingHow long have you been in business?
Photography For Your Precious Times has been in business for over 40 years. Based in New York, our weekly repertoire consists of weddings all across the tri-state area. Our customer base spans the globe.
Our main photographer shoots several weddings per year in Italy. Our destination weddings include
Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe.

What is your primary focus?
Our business is predominately weddings and children portraits.  As we immerse ourselves in these aspects of photography, it allows for us to continually grow technically and artistically. Many of our bridal couples have returned to us to document their children’s birthdays, religious sacraments, as well as family affairs.

Are you a member of any professional organizations?
We are a member in good standing with the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Professional Photographers of Greater New York (PPGNY) in which our master photographer serves as President for the
2010 year, and Wedding & Portrait Photographers Int’l (WPPI).

Why should a photographer be a member of these organizations?
As a member, we aspire to attain acknowledgement from our peers
and to reach a higher degree of status within the profession.  Merits and awards are obtained through submissions that are reviewed from leading industry professionals.  Classes are offered and the interchanging of ideas and techniques further enhances our craft as photographers.

Where are you located?
Photography For Your Precious Times has a Brooklyn and Staten Island location. The Brooklyn office and studio is located at 6404 20th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. The Staten Island location is for shoots only and must be booked through the Brooklyn office.

What makes your photo studio unique?
Photography For Your Precious Times is an award winning studio. Our office walls are adorned with award winning prints. Each year, our studio is involved in national and international print competitions. We have an outdoor garden with waterfall, a studio with unique props and multiple backdrops. Our staff consists of professional retouchers, layout designers, and full-time photographers and videographers. We do not employ freelancers or enthusiastic hobbyists.

Do you offer video?
Although the term photography is in our company name, the term videography should be as well.  Back in the 1970’s we would shoot on Super 8mm without synch sound and 16mm then advanced with the advent of the video revolution.  Decades later, the medium has undergone countless revisions. We are proud to stay current with the technology used in conjunction with wedding videography. By choosing our videographers and photographers to work alongside one another ensures a smooth workflow and a more enjoyable experience for the bridal couple.  Our photo and video staff work together harmoniously and has devised a method of production that minimizes any fuss or scheduling conflicts that may occur when another company attempts to “dominate’ the day and monopolize your time unjustly in attempt to “create a better product.” Usually this is customary to freelancers, “professional-amateurs”, and DJ companies. Our videos are shot digitally and lit to make the most of ambient light.  The edited production is available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

What other services do you offer?
Photography For Your Precious Times has a wedding planner on staff to help you with all aspects of your wedding day. We offer wedding invitations at considerable discounts, have a working realtionship with local florists, and will refer you to some of the best make-up artists and hairstylists.
