From the beginning, Derek was great. He kept email communication open and was a lot of fun to meet in person. The company truley matched us according to our style. At our reception the music was phenomenal! Our guests danced the whole night through and the next morning we received multiple complements that the dj was amazing. We had such a great time and didn't have to worry about anything. We also had an outdoor ceremony that was beautify choreographed. He blended songs well making for a perfect ceremony and was able to start the reception simultaneously! Style, class and always had a great attitude - 5 stars!

We hired Frank Farina and Black Tie Photography for our wedding, which took place in June of 2013. We met with several photographers before the wedding, evaluating willingness and flexibility of each of them and finally came to the conclusion that Black Tie Photography was our best choice, and we were 100% right. From the very beginning Frank was easy to deal with, flexible with meetings and deadlines, and willing to give us a great value for the amount of money that we were spending. Black Tie Photography always helped us when in need and fulfilled all of our requests before, during, and after our wedding day. We would recommend Frank and Black Tie Photography to anyone looking for a professional photographer after the great experience we had with this company.

Frank and his team did an amazing job at our wedding! From the second we met Frank, we knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding-his personable demeanor, beautiful studio and stunning portfolio are very impressive. His pictures are simple yet beautiful and capture the true emotion of that day. He is professional, on time and knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I would recommend Black Tie Photographers for anyone that wants clean, simple and gorgeous photos to remember their special day. Thank you to Frank and your team for helping to create beautiful memories!

Frank Farina was the photographer at my daughter's June 2 wedding. We had a good vibe from him the moment we met. The chemistry between Frank and the bride and groom was so, so good. He's extremely talented and creative. He's extremely organized and professional and takes tremendous pride in his work. But more than that he is fun! We all had such a great time with him and his assistant photographer Laurie. Go onto his website and you will see the quality of his work. What you can't see is what a warm and caring and super fun person he is. We had a blast!!

Frank is AMAZING and it was an absolute pleasure to have him and his team as my wedding photographer! I would highly recommend him if you want the best!! Frank was referred to me by my colleague and knowing her impeccable taste, I knew right away that Frank must be an excellent photographer but I did not know to what extent! Frank was so patient, caring and thoughtful, as he “hand-hold” me from start to finish. He made it possible to have my wedding day unfold like a fairytale, capturing the precious moments filled with smiles, laughter, tears and the magical essence of the wedding day. Frank had a way of making me, my husband and our guests feel so comfortable and at ease and people told me how awesome he was! Even when Frank was taking countless photos of them (which could be uncomfortable and tiring), he made it fun for them. Frank is extremely personable, professional and trustworthy; his outstanding and extraordinary artistic work speaks for themselves! Frank was the best part of our wedding plans and I would highly recommend that you experience for yourself how fantastic he is!!!

Frank and Brian from Black Tie Photographers were hands down the easiest and most professional photographers to work with. They were so friendly and outgoing, it seemed as if I knew them for years even though I just met them the morning of my wedding.

They made me smile without trying, made me laugh from the simplest jokes, and calmed me down when I became worried or nervous. Right before I was to walk down the aisle at 11:30, I had learned that my bus with many wedding guests hadn't arrived yet and when I asked what time it was, my sister blurted out 11:30 and Frank calmly said 11:05 and I believed him even though it was really 11:30. He was my ballast on the day that I needed one most.

During our post wedding pictures, we were walking outside and it was pretty windy on the water. My veil was floating in the wind and while Frank was following us taking some shots, my veil flew off and magically, he managed to get the shot of my veil flying off of my head and almost into the water! I have no idea how he managed to get that picture, but it's just one example of Frank's phenomenal work.

Other than the shots that were "posed," I had no idea that they were even there, shooting all of the special and candid moments during our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.
Frank is very witty, quick and a pleasure to work with. My husband is an extremely picky person and mentioned how impressed he was with Frank and Brian. My husband doesn't smile much, but he is smiling ear to ear in nearly every shot! I've never seen his teeth as much as I did in our wedding pictures.

I would hire them again in a second for any event and give them the highest of recommendations.

Frank is incredibly talented! His photojournalist style perfectly captured our wedding day. Our pictures tell a 10-hour story of the most perfect night which we will always be able to relive through our beautiful album!

Frank is professional, honest and warm. He is fun to work with and easy to trust. Frank has a great eye and the quality is beyond expectation. He is unobtrusive yet never missed a detail.

From our engagement shoot in Central Park to our wedding day, Frank took the most stunning pictures. And coming from a bride and groom that don't think they are photogenic, Frank's pictures magically made us feel like we were rock stars for just one day.

Frank Farina's Black Tie Photographers does absolutely beautiful work. His photographs are stunning, and captured the beauty and spirit and joy of the people and the event itself. The bridal party and the guests also enjoyed themselves while he was taking the photos -- he is lots of fun. Frank does the physical settings justice as well. As the mother of the bride, I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Frank Farina is simply the best. Not only did he make us feel comfortable and magical on our special day, but the pictures he produced are marvelous. I can't stop looking at them. My husband is not someone who is super comfortable posing for pictures, or someone who likes the idea of being in the spotlight. Frank got him to crack some smiles and made him feel at ease- to the point where my husband was actually getting into it. Frank was able to capture us in some very natural stances that look like us-- and not like two people posing for the camera. Frank was great with everyone- parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and especially the little ones running around. We will treasure our Frank Farina photos from our engagement shots and from our wedding for the rest of our lives. Thank you Frank!!

I have been an event manager for over ten years and managed high profile events for CEO's and politicians including various state governors. I frequently hire top photographers to cover these prestigious events, so I have a very deep appreciation for quality photography work. Frank Farina and his team are absolutely top notch. Frank's always goes the extra mile, is personable and easy to work with, has great attention to detail, and has an incredible ability to work with subjects to make them comfortable and produce that "magic shot". Frank met with us at our wedding venue in advance to coach us about taking good photographs. His wonderful sense of humor put us at ease and propped us up throughout our wedding day. He helped orchestrate our event in a way that produced quality moments that we will treasure forever. He was on top of every minute detail of the program from start to finish. In a word, Black Tie Photographers' service is PRICELESS!

Frank and his team were wonderful. The pictures from our wedding were amazing and we were so impressed with the quality. They were also received in a timely manner after the big day which we appreciated. We were able to spend time with Frank prior to the wedding during an engagement shoot. This was perfect because we got to sample before our wedding day how superb Frank was at making us feel totally comfortable; and of course gave us some early evidence of his artistic abilities. We highly recommend Frank and his team and would hire them without hesitation.

We were so pleased to have Frank and his amazing team provide the wonderful services at our wedding. Frank is amazing! The pictures he took captured the essence of our ceremony, taking care of every detail and ensuring that shots were taken over to make certain we would get the absolute best from our wonderful day. While we love the posed photos, the candid photos were the best - the looks, the smiles and complete love people expressed that day were all captured. Frank is a genius and we are eternally grateful to have the photos he captured for us that day.

Frank and his team at Black Tie Photographers were amazing to work with! Frank is talented, professional and full of enthusiasm. Above all else he has an eye for beauty and took absolutely stunning photographs. I was hesitant to do the engagement shoot but Frank made it a fun night in Central Park and we got some truly amazing pictures from that evening also. On the wedding day Frank and his staff were completely unobtrusive and made everyone feel really comfortable. The whole process from engagement shoot and wedding day photos to getting the online gallery along with a CD with all of the original pictures was seemless. We had everything in no time and are absolutely thrilled with the gallery! Bottom line is if you go with Black Tie Photographers you can count on beautiful photos right out of a magazine and a completely stress-free experience. Thank you, Frank - we loved working with you!

LOVED Frank Farina and his crew. Highly professional, put everyone at ease, and by and large went way above the call of duty. Our pictures were flawless, and truly reflected the magic of the day. Everyone on Facebook, to this day (3 years later) comments on how amazing the photos are. Choosing just 75 to make it into the album proved excruciatingly difficult. Additionally, they were very respectful and cognizant of proper church etiquette, of which we were very appreciative. They were not cheap, but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. Photos are the only thing you have once the wedding is over, and we felt that it was worth spending a little more in that direction. We were not sorry, as the quality of our photos and the experience was well worth it!

Frank and his team we're absolutely incredible to work with! They did a wonderful job photographing each and every moment of our special day. All of the photos captured the emotions and told the story of our wedding perfectly and my husband and I couldn't be happier with the results.

They're fun, professional, and really have a way of making you feel calm and relaxed on the day-of.

I HIGHLY recommend them... in fact Frank will be photographing our best friends' wedding next summer :)

Black Tie Photographers were one of the major highlights of our wedding planning experience. Frank Farina was a pleasure to work with. He is nice, approachable, accommodating, flexible, professional, and most importantly, he is a fun and easy going kind of guy who takes beautiful photographs. The personality of the photographer is very important on your wedding day because out of all your vendors, the photographer is the one you spend the most time with. Both my husband and I meshed well with Frank and his team and were so happy we had them on our wedding day!
Something I would like to note is that before our wedding, Frank did a phenomenal engagement shoot for us and me being the last minute on everything, decided I wanted one of these photographs blown up into a poster for display at our wedding. I came up with this idea 48 hours before our wedding! I called Frank to see if this was a possibility and he assured me it would be done. He did not give me any flack for the short notice and the poster turned out wonderful and is currently hanging up in our kitchen!
As for our wedding photos, they turned out beautiful. Everybody loved them. Frank worked meticuosly on the photos and put a lot of time and energy into it. In general, Frank has a lot of energy, which is important for a wedding photographer. He also gives a personal touch to his work and in his interactions with people. Frank always returns calls, never late, and was never hard to reach. We really appreciated all of his work and efforts to capture the essence of our special day.
ADDENDUM: To the Brides and Grooms, just some general advice about photography...think about who you want to take photos with. Your wedding day goes by fast and it is helpful to go over before the wedding who you want photos with and the location of where you want these photos taken. This will help keep your day running smooth and you will feel at ease that you got pictures you wanted. Good luck!

Frank and Black Tie Photographers were great to work with for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Frank was personable, professional, and best of all, he's amazing at what he does! On the day of our wedding, Frank came to the hotel prior to the ceremony and took photos of me and my bridesmaids getting ready, while his second photographer (Telmo) went to my mother-in-law's house to take pictures of the groomsmen getting ready. Both photographers ensured that we were on time to the church and tried their best to have the bridal party/family photos done by the start of cocktail hour (we really did not want to be taking photos during cocktail hour). During the reception, they continued to take great photos, up until the very end. And, our photos came out amazing!

Frank was the perfect photographer for us. We picked him because his portfolio was amazing but also because he has a great personality! He did an a great job at our wedding getting all the portraits done that we wanted but he did it quickly so we didn't miss all of our cocktail hour. All of our guests commented on how great he was and our pictures are just beautiful! We would recommend Frank to anyone!

Black Tie Photography MADE our wedding day. Frank brought us willing, professional down to earth staff along with himself. I was apprehensive about having to "pose" a lot during my big day, but they were able to make it seamless. It was like they belonged as part of our family in the big event. The day after the wedding, I actually said to my husband that I was sad we no longer had to see our photo crew, since we loved them so much. The pictures themselves are GORGEOUS and plentiful. Black Tie Photographers is worth every penny! :)

Our photos are beautiful but we received our album 2 years after our wedding after many calls and emails to Frank. The album had to be repaired because there were streaks down almost every page. Frank has not responded to any emails since our album was sent back to him. So almost 2 and a half years later and we still do not have our album. If you want a responsible and responsive photographer, you are looking at the wrong group. Very disappointed in our experience and hope to someday get a quality wedding album since we paid for it!

Black Tie Photographers, NY responded with the following comments:

This client did receive beautiful photographs from us! Although it has been two years since their wedding, it HAS NOT been two years since they picked their photos, had the designs made over and over to satisfy the client (normal practice) and once approved... printed, bound and sent to the home. The binding co that produced the final book made a mistake and is making good by giving them a new one!
