BIOGRAPHY
My wedding photography style is a mix of photojournalism, traditional portrait, and editorial fashion. While I am extremely focused on capturing those special moments that make the B&G's day so unique, I also strive to make sure that they get the beautifully composed family portraits that their family members will surely want on their mantles. Photo.net has been extremely helpful to me and I thank all those out there who have answered my many questions. My philosophy is that I'm not only there to document an event, but am there to help if needs be. Be it a bobby pin, helping to bustle the bride's dress, or fit a groomsman's vest, I'm there. I like to make the B&G's day as easy & stress free for them as possible, because that is a recipe for beautiful photographs. I am a newlywed myself (just had my second anniversary!) so I feel I am fairly tapped in to what many brides are looking for these days. To try to help out my couples, I have provided tips and tricks on my blog for them that I learn along the way. Most recently I have embarked on a new project of video blogging along with my dance teacher to show couples how easy it is to learn a few simple dance moves that can help them out on the dance floor and during our bridal portrait sessions. Here's one on dips if you've ever wanted to be able to show your couples how to properly get into a dip without hurting themselves: http://fuccisphotos.com/blog/2011/12/28/dancing-with-the-dancing-photographer-webisode-2-dips/ I started shooting weddings professionally in 2009, but I've been into SLR photography since I was 8, back in the good ol film days. I went to the University of Pennsylvania to get my undergraduate degree in bioengineering and Masters degree in bioethics, but I should have known back then when I was choosing to spend 30-40 hours a week in the dark room over working on assignments for my major that photography was my true calling. I went on to get my Ph.D. in bioethics, but my love of photography only grew stronger. After attending many a wedding & hearing from the B&Gs repeatedly that the shots I took were better than their hired pros’, I fantasized about being a wedding photographer. Christmas 2009, to my total surprise, my husband presented me with a portfolio that said Fucci's Photos, LLC on it. Inside were the incorporation papers & federal tax ID for Fucci's Photos. He said, here's your dream, now make it happen. I was a weekend warrior at first, 2nd shooting here and there to learn as much as I could. Eventually enough bookings started to come in that I was able to take Fucci's Photos full time. I'm proud to say that in short time Fucci's Photos has been open, we were chosen as a 2011 brides choice award winner. My husband, dog and I live in Boston. I absolutely LOVE my job now and am sooooo happy I took the plunge. If you have any questions about my journey, please feel free to write me. If you are considering turning your hobby of photography into your profession, heed the warnings you will likely receive on Photo.net. Sometimes they may seem gruff, but in the end they are QUITE helpful! Thanks for stopping by!
