LAURA & SCOTT: Wonder woman Palladino, What you and Mike do is absolutely a talent. You take an ordinary moment and make it extraordinary. That is talent. You take a piece of time and turn it into photographic proof that such a beautiful and perfect moment in fact existed in our lives. These photos are our evidence that for one splash of a shutter click, nobody else in the entire world existed but each other, and you were able to capture it. You guys were able to get us as we naturally are: a little goofy, a little romantic and a whole lot in love. And for that, I will be forever grateful. Thanks again and again.
DEANNA & BRYAN: Words cannot adequately express how blown away my husband and I are with Elaine and her husband, Mike, as photographers, and human beings. Within minutes of our first meeting at a cheese and wine bar by our home, I knew Elaine and Mike were the ones for us. They felt like old friends that we were able to feel completely at ease around. Obviously, that wasn’t the only thing that factored into our decision, their work speaks volumes. It’s fresh and gorgeous, capturing all the emotion and magic that love, engagements and weddings are supposed to be.
LISA & LAMAR: I always joke that three things went absolutely perfectly on our wedding day: the photographers, the bouquet and the husband. Thanks so much for being there…
ELISE & ALBERTO: There isn’t enough great words in my vocabulary to write about these two. Mike and Elaine Palladino are two of the most incredible people/photographers this world will ever know. My wdding was on July 20th. From the time I started emailing Elaine that I wanted her and Mike to shoot my wedding, they were so responsive. They answered any questions I had with such knowledge of their profession. I had no doubt that my photos would come out amazing, which they most definitely did. They exceeded every expectation I had to the highest degree. I would recommend them to anyone getting married, engagement, first baby pictures or simply if you just wanted an amazing photo of you and your loved ones. Mike and Elaine are so thoughtful in every sense of the word. They have class, and it shows in their work. My wedding would not have been the same if they weren’t there to catch every special moment between Alberto and I. Elaine was so helpful, even as I was getting ready she was there helping me zip up my dress. I was speechless when I saw the photos of my wedding. You simply cannot get quality work like this elsewhere. Awesome job my friends. Bravo. Two thumbs up. The best in the game by far!
CHARLENE & JOSH: I’m sitting here trying to find the words to capture my thoughts, but I am truly at a loss. Please magnify and intensify anything that I say by a million to understand how much we love these photos. They are beyond beautiful and beyond special and make me cry the sweetest tears each time I look at them. We really feel blessed to not only know someone as genuine and wonderful as you but also to have an artistic genus capture such precious moments in our lives.
TERESA & JOHN: I have met many people, some of them have become close friends that have claimed to be photographers. They would classify themselves as artists. I would look at their photos and wonder where the art is in taking a picture of something that already exists. Then I met Elaine Palladino. I was told by my wife to be that she will be doing our engagement and wedding photos. Great, another ‘artist’ I thought. Soon after meeting her and her husband Mike I learned the difference between someone taking picture and an artist. What they do is absorb themselves into your life and record it. They are unobtrusive and at times I wondered if they were even there. They allow you to be yourself and let the moment speak for itself. They also have an uncanny ability to recognize how the texture of a wall is equally important as a smile on your face. How a fallen flower speaks to the moment as equally as the bride and groom giving a kiss. They miss nothing.When you get your photos back you will realize that they have not only recorded your moments but they have begun to tell the story of that moment. Much like a griot that takes on the responsibility of the history of a village, Elaine and Mike Palladino take on the responsibility of telling your story.I am looking forward to my life with my wife. It will be filled with great events and moments that I will want to share with family and friends. Taking pictures with a phone or camera will not be an issue. However when I want a story to be told, I will entrust that to Elaine Palladino Photography.
ELIZABETH & KRISTOPHER: Words cannot describe the amount of joy you have given us through those amazing pictures! We cried and we laughed, you captured every emotion, every moment. We get taken back to that every time we see those pictures, which by the way we’ve seen 3 times in one day already. You and Mike were like part of our family, Mike was like part of the boys, Kris had such a good time with him. Elaine thank you so much for your help on my special day, while getting ready. We are eternally grateful for those wonderful, amazing, fantastic, breathtaking and stunning memories. Need we go on? This note can barely express our thanks!
