What have we been up to?

We want to help you plan your wedding day.

What do you do when the bride to be doesn’t want a bridal shower?

You throw her a shower anyway and make sure it’s amazing! We high jacked The Stampfel Movies Malverne Quad theatre a couple of weeks ago and threw Janira, (the bride to be), a surprise shower. I told her she was going to a focus group and would make $400 in two hours. How else do you get someone to the theatre at 9:15 AM in the morning? The bathroom shower never fails to give me great ideas. It’s like a magical waterfall of inspiration. If you ever decide to rent the Malverne you can only rent it out in the morning. Renting a movie theatre presents many challenges. Every room slopes somewhere. You have to prop up tables and watch where you put the chairs. Balloons are not permitted in the actual theatre as well. Why the movies some have asked? My dear friend Janira loves the movies like no one else I know. Opening gifts can be stressful for the guest of honor and not always the most exciting activity for the other guests. I figure if we could make this as fun as possible to take that edge off. Setting the mood was crucial. I created seven movie posters of Janira using old and current photos. I have been photographing Janira for many years so my archive is deep. The night before my husband Rob and I ran over to the Malverne at 11:00 PM to hang the posters. It was hysterical, when the patrons were leaving their respective theatres they started talking about the posters. “Who is Janira Campos”? “Why does she have so many movies released at once”? “I’ve never heard of her before”. I let chatter go on for a little while. To say it was amusing was an understatement. I finally filled them in on what we were doing. I’ve never heard men say they wish they were invited it a bridal shower before and I’m guessing I may never hear that statement again. Saturday morning finally arrived and we gorilla decorated the theatre. Janira arrived at 9:20 AM and was completely overwhelmed by the 6 movie posters of her hanging in the theatre lobby, (it was like watching Lot’s wife turn to stone). She caught on to what was happening and the party took off. We ate breakfast in the concession area and then moved to theatre 2 for the photo montage of Janira. She also opened her gifts in the theatre in between various songs and skits that some guests generously performed. Even though I was working hard to ensure the party went smoothly, I managed to get some photos. I hope you can get a sense of the party from these images. A special thank you to Henry & Anne Stampfel, owners of the theatre. They and their staff were instrumental in our events success. Thank you the bridesmaids and Janira’s sister in-law Lilian for your help in putting this day together. Now I just have to finish my MOH speech……….

Check out Denise & Jeff’s wedding album. Such a beautiful and touching day. I cried along when Jeff danced with his sister to Paul Anka’s, “Times of Your Life”. It’s an oldie and a killer. Everyone was so great to work with. Congrats Denise & Jeff! Thank you for the opportunity to be part of your perfect day!

The Riviera in Massapequa Laura & Nathan’s Wedding

One thing that we do at Modern Wedding Photography that isn’t that common is we predesign your wedding album. Our clients receive the 1st draft of their album as a slideshow a week or so after their wedding. The client will make all of the edits and changes they like, but the predesign helps get the process going. It’s overwhelming for any client to receive several hundred images and then decide what goes into their album? I love doing these album slideshows. They can share their virtual album with the world. Watch it on their smart phone, iPad and embed it on their Facebook wall. Working with Laura & Nathan was a pure delight. I photographed her cousin’s wedding a few years back and it was great to see everyone again. Nathan’s Mom wanted to get a photo of my assistant and me. This was so sweet, but I hate getting my photo taken…:)

The Allegria Hotel & Spa-Lindsey & Peri’s Wedding

The last time I saw Lindsey & Peri was when we shot their fun engagement shoot last November. It was so great to work with them again. The big day was action packed. Lindsey & Peri did a Tango for their first dance. The song that accompanies their dance and this slideshow is, “Por Una Cabeza”, performed by John Williams & Itzhak Perlman. Their guests cheered as they danced! It was one of many awesome moments on this perfect day.
