New York Wedding Photographer

If couples ask as me to describe my style, all I can say is that my wedding photography is vibrant and happy. I’m Gabriela Fuentes, and I’m a New York Wedding Photographer telling love stories through for sweet and happy couples. For those of you who want to know about me, what can I say? …. I’m easy going and I like to have fun with my brides. I’m a storyteller, and I read a bedtime story to my three year old every night. I love chocolate and I’m a spend more time in FB that I like to admit.

What makes you different than other wedding photographers? That’s easy, let me have my New York brides tell you:

“When I first met with Gaby I’ve already met with a few NYC photographers. Her presence, professionalism and warm aura was evident the moment I walked into her office. Something I didn’t get with other photographers I’ve met…. ” – Martine, New York City, New York

Please feel free to browse through my New York Wedding Photographer site. Here you will find my wedding photography gallery and my Blog. In my blog, you can see photos from my most recent New York weddings, and my personal ramblings. Thank you for stopping by!

The Hotel Indigo NJ Wedding – B&W Wedding Photos – Tiffany + Bryce

Last week, we had the pleasure and honored of shooting another wedding for the Shamy Family. This time, is was Tiffany’s time. She had met her prince charming, Bryce, and was about to have her dream wedding, which she had been planning for twenty six years.

Tiffany expressed how important her wedding pictures are and was looking for photojournalistic wedding pictures with a little bit of New York flare. At the same time, she had basically memorized almost all pictures she had ever seen on a magazine. So here, I had to be extra careful to find the balance of getting her dream pictures, while capturing the unscripted moments.

TIffany and Bryce’s wedding theme was black and white, so for this blog, I did something I have never done before and that is to post only Black and White pictures to accomplish the New York photojournalistic style she was looking for. Note: All their pictures are in color, but for this post, I edited them in BW.

Tiffany and Bryce chose the Hotel Indigo, which is a boutique hotel in New Jersey that looks like it was taken out of Tribeca or Soho.

Back to Basics

Thankfully, this has been a very busy and exciting year for The Wedding Central. Which of course meant a lot of hard work and little spare time to do almost anything else aside from work.

But now that the weather got colder, and the wedding season has slowed down, we get to have time back on our side.

So this weekend, we went out with some friends and took Isabella to The Liberty Science Center because we want to expose her to the wonders of learning. From the moment she walked into the toddler’s room, her face lit; she ran, fell, played and smiled at all the wonderful things she was discovering. As I looked at her, I took a mental picture of her happiness, and if I could preserve it for her, I will.

As we came out, we hopped, we sang, we laughed, and for a moment, I felt like a child again. And like a child, I was happy just to feel the wind touching my face.

In that place of discovery, I was reminded that in an age when time has become a luxury, sometimes we have to go back to the basics. Hop, laugh and live.

Halloween 2010: Isabella Ballerina

This has been a very busy year. Between weddings, photo shoots, seminars and meetings, my free time during the weekends have been reduced to seldom trips to the window to see how the day is developing outside. Halloween was not the exception. For several weeks, I had planned to have a family day on Halloween and spend it outdoors, but because I forget to write family outings on my calendar, we scheduled a client meeting, which turned out to be a good thing because I got to know an amazing couple, and I also discovered that Isabella is still not that interested in weird looking people strolling through the streets.

So here are the lessons that I learned on Halloween: Unless you have a second costume as back up, don’t put a costume as soon as your toddler gets up. Get a picture as soon as you dress your toddler. Go trick or treating early in the day before people run out of candy.

Isabella looks at these pictures as says Isabella Ballerina, just like one of her favorite characters Angelina BallerinaIsabella Ballerina Halloween 2010

And here is little tip for Halloween costume makers: Halloween costumes should also come in winter styles.

Flush Mount Wedding Album Design – NJ NY Wedding Photography

A few months ago, I blogged about Marcela and Eric’s beautiful Garden Wedding at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ, and posted a few of their pictures on our blog. Now, I wanted to show you the next step after we photograph a wedding: The Wedding Album Design.

After we shoot a Wedding, your wedding pictures will be uploaded to a private online wedding gallery. There, you will be able to select your favorite pictures. You will let us know the pictures that you want, and we will design your Wedding Album. Album Design is something that we are really proud of because that is where it all comes together. Each album is designed with the couple’s story in mind, so no two albums are the same, which is why other photographers also chose The Wedding Central to design their wedding albums.

Marcela and Eric wanted a square Flush Mount album with a very clean and classic design. “Flush mount album” or “Magazine Style album” means that your pictures are printed onto one single page, also called spread, just like a magazine or a book; which allows for placing a picture across two pages. This is different from a traditional matted album where each picture is printed individually and then mounted to the page using mats. Different album companies may use different names: Flush Mount or Coffee table books, the design concept is the same, but depending on the company the material and quality could vary. We are proud to say that use the top album manufacturers in the country.

This couple chose a 10×10 album with a premium leather cover, a cover cameo picture and engraving. Click here to see the complete Wedding Album design

The Brownstone Wedding Photos | Courtney + Michael Wedding Photos

Courtney and Michael met through e-harmony. They arranged for a first date. Courtney is a hair stylist, and he would pick her up after work. But he had an exit strategy though. He planned to take a look and leave if he didn’t like what he saw, and as it turned out, he not simply loved what he saw, he knew She was the one.

Courtney and Michael are one of the most amazing couples we have worked with. Earlier this year, we headed to the shore to take their jersey shore engagement photography session, and they were a blast. On a perfect fall day, this wonderful couple married at the Brownstone in New Jersey, and they picked the most special date of the year to tie the knot 10/10/10. I was really looking forward for this wedding, and we were thrilled and honored to have been there to document your wedding day.
