A Perfect Wedding at the Plaza Hotel

Katherine & Bryan,
I just wanted to thank you so much for this beautiful letter. It made the studio and myself so proud and really just made my day.
“Bryan and I have been together for almost seven years and have therefore gathered an incredible amount of wonderful memories together.  However, our wedding at The Plaza Hotel was by far the best day of our lives.  Brian Marcus and his team captured it in the most fun, beautiful, and breathtaking way imaginable!  When I woke up the day after our wedding, I looked at Bryan and said, “Our wedding was absolutely perfect!  When do you think the pictures will be ready?!”  Being the true professional, Brian Marcus got us our digital and hard copy proofs almost immediately, and they were everything that we imagined they would be.. and more!  Brian and his team captured every single special moment with the utmost class and grace and provided us with an awesome array of photographs–We had the formal shots, intimate shots, momentous and artistic shots, and fun shots!–including us with our wedding party dancing with street break-dancers and stopping traffic on Central Park South to take a picture in front of a New York City tour bus!  As every bride and groom know, gathering families and a large wedding party for pictures is extremely hard, but Brian and his team made it look easy, kept us laughing, and made our wedding day stress free and so much fun!  In addition, the candid photographs from the ceremony and the reception perfectly froze in time how excited and happy everyone was to be celebrating such a joyous event.  Seriously,  every smile, tear, laugh, hug, dance, and kiss were caught on camera.  Brian Marcus and his team at Fred Marcus Photography are by far the best this business has to offer.  No words could ever accurately convey how grateful we are for everything that you did for us.  Brian, you are a true artist, a professional, and a gentleman.  From the bottom of our hearts…THANK YOU!!!”

All the best,
Brian Marcus  


A Gorgeous Wedding at the Mandarin Oriental With Our New Friends Jamie and David!

We recently reached out to Jamie and David to hear about their very own love-story as a couple, and experience with Fred Marcus Photography on their wedding day!We are high school sweethearts who have been together for over 9 years! We started dating when David was a senior and I was a sophomore, and we have been together ever since (even attending different colleges). Our wedding was at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York, and it was absolutely the most special and most fun day of our lives. Getting back our beautiful photos has enabled us to relive everything. Brian Marcus is an amazing photographer and made the whole experience enjoyable, including bringing our 25-person bridal party into the middle of Columbus Circle traffic to take great shots! In addition to the Fred Marcus team, we want to thank many of the people who contributed to making our wedding perfect for us: Arthur and James at the Mandarin are simply fantastic; Lawrence Scott Events created the most beautiful ceremony and reception; Gail Curtis played the most wonderful ceremony music; and our DJ Jason Fioto of Generation Events kept everyone dancing until 2:30am!To Jamie and David; That day was just as special to everybody here at Fred Marcus Photography.  It has been a pleasure getting to know you guys, and we look forward to many other wonderful occasions with you!

A Very Special Engagement Shoot

We are so excited to be photographing Erin and Brent’s wedding at the Plaza in January. Erin and her family have been friends of ours ever since she and my daughter went to college together. Brent’s family I have known for even longer, as I had the honor to photograph all the family events in his and his extended family’s lives for more than 20 years. That’s what makes doing what we do so much fun. It’s the best business I can think of. Can’t wait to see you at the wedding in January; In the meantime you have so many fabulous engagement shots to keep you occupied!
