Things Are Not Always What They Seem

As Alfonse’s partner in life and work I tend to wear many hats. I am the co-owner, director and manager of many things ranging from client meetings to emptying the garbage bins of our photography studio to writing blogs that nobody reads. I serve also as the subject of many light tests and a lot of times for stock shoots and promotional material as in this photo.

I wish I could say this shoot was as joyful as it looks. Because the petals weren’t falling the way we wanted them to, I had to keep leaping with abandon over and over again until we realized we had to shoot the tossing of the petals separately. Separately is how we ended that day, too–with me wanting to toss something at Alfonse (and no, I was not thinking rose petals).

Things do not always look as they appear to be — wishing a lot of that this year.

Happy New Year.

Wedding Anniversaries , November

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.

Shown below are six couple whose weddings we have shot all celebrating an November anniversary. From 2005 to 2007.

Best wishes to all from Alfonse Pagano Photography Weddings  for all upcoming Wedding Anniversaries.

Wedding Anniversaries Tanya and Brian Married November 2008 at Twenty Four Fifth, Greenwich Village New York, just in site of the Arches at Washington Square Park. Twenty Four Fifth has since closed its doors for business, I believe this wedding may have been one of the last ones hosted by them.

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.

“Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.”

Us poor guys have a tux. predominantly black…..I forget about shoes… and the brides getting dressed is most undoubtedly a sexier affair. But the grooms got heart.Dancing fools for the Bride!¬† I have started a gallery on my website and here in our blog to honor and feature the grooms and groomsmen ” Men In Black ” a work in progress, a celebration in motion.
