“I work for a major publisher and knew I wanted our wedding photographs to look like they belonged in a magazine.
Finding the right person who could meet our high expectations was challenging.
We really lucked out with G.E.. He was extremely professional and the passion he has for his work really shows. He is an absolute talent and so unique at what he does. The images he took of our wedding really captured the essence of the day. They tell a story and breathe life into the best day of our lives every time we look at them.”
Christina Dalton, HEARST MAGAZINES
“What an incredible job you did. Your photos truly are art work and we feel so incredibly blessed to have our happiest moments captured as beautifully as we remember them. Your modern, yet classic candid style was exactly what we were hoping for, and we know that is so difficult to find… You were the utmost professional, keeping things light when they could have been stressful. We were so thrilled to have found you.”
Vanessa Penna, Editor, ELLE magazine
“Having you photograph our wedding was the wisest decision we could have made.
We had seen the work of a dozen photographers, It had become a joke to us because most of the work looked exactly the same. The same poses, the same angles and the same expressions on people’s faces. You could tell what they were thinking (“please take the picture already, I’m missing my own wedding”). We were frustrated and ready to settle.
We saw your work hanging on the wall of someone’s office.These were not the ordinary wedding pictures, these photographs were art. The pictures looked so natural and the expressions so real, we felt as if we knew the people, we felt their emotions. This was what we were looking for, there was no hesitation.
We just wanted to thank you for the unbelievable job you did at our wedding.”

“The album is so drop dead beautiful!… If anybody is trying to decide between you and any other photographer in the world – you tell them to call us because we’ll set them straight!”

“We definitely wanted to avoid cookie cutter pictures and wanted someone who would capture unique candids as well as create artistic portraits and he more than delivered. G.E. was fabulous to work with… working harder than anyone in that room. But of course what really matters is the pictures and WOW!... I felt like everything was captured… Our wedding book is beyond belief – each page is filled with sumptous photos that often look more like paintings than photography.
In an age where almost everyone has a camera and you know you might gets thousands of pictures back… it is easy to question what difference a real photographer makes – but looking through the book G.E. created for us you are reminded that photography is an art, and that G.E. is an artist.”
Heather and Mitch Davis, NYC, NY
“All of our friends WISH they had GE do their wedding. Our goal was to find someone willing to do something unique, candid, with more of an artistic approach. We met several photographers offering us a great package including tons of “stuff” in their prices, but none of them could offer us the artistry of G.E.
It was as if you could feel the emotion coming from every shot. The album is most beautiful album we have ever seen. It looks like pictures you would see in a magazine, and we could not be more pleased.”
Melissa and James Mazzola, Long Island, NY
Courtney & Steve Dixon, Florham Park, NJ: “you went beyond our expectations”
“Our biggest concern was finding a photographer who could capture our wedding day the way it really was, not only how it looked but how it felt.”
We didn’t want someone that would make us pose and impede on the day, rather we wanted someone that could capture those memorable moments but not even realize that they were there. We wanted someone that was talented and passionate about their craft, as well as someone we felt we trusted, was comfortable with, and was professional.
We chose G.E. Masana because from our first encounter we were blown away with his work, his professionalism and we felt an immediate connection. It was very apparent from that first meeting that he could deliver on exactly what we envisioned. We knew our photographs were going to be stunning, and we had complete trust in him.
Our photographs were better than anything we could have imagined.
We were simply blown away with G.E. ‘s work.
Everyone that we show our photographs to are speechless.
He exceeded all of our expectations and we are so thrilled that these are the images that we will be sharing with our family and friends for generations.
He is AMAZING!!!”
Jessica and Sean Zay, East Hampton NY

Hear Gaines’ message when she got her wedding images:
“After choosing a spectacular wedding venue such as the River Café, we knew that we also needed to choose a spectacular photographer.
We wanted somebody that not only had the experience required but also was passionate and unique; we found all of that in G.E..
He is so talented and his expertise and professionalism exceeded our expectations. He is a perfectionist and he displays a true passion for his work. He is so careful and proud of each detail of the wedding photography process, and this is reflected in his final product. He has a way of capturing the classic beauty of New York’s architecture and creating an intimate moment that is part of any romance.
We are so proud and pleased with his magnificent and unique work; we just got our wedding albums and the compliments are already overflowing.
We couldn’t be happier with our ‘one of a kind’ wedding albums and will continue to recommend him to every bride & groom-to-be we know.
He is just amazing and extraordinary. “

Wendy Lin, Seattle, WA
“G.E. helped make our wedding picture perfect. G.E. made it a visual memory we can treasure forever. Having a fine art background myself I was looking for a photographer who would take more creative and candid approach, not wanting to spend my wedding day posing. G.E. was the perfect fit and we have so many beautiful fun and happy photos of family and friends that bring us right back to that day every time we look at them.”
Patty and Greg Martin, NYC, NY
“His style and attention to detail surpassed anything I had ever seen. I left everything in G.E.’s hands on our wedding day! It was perfect! He captured everything I dreamed of and more! Our photos are amazing!!! To this day people are still talking about our photos and how “different” and “beautiful” they are… We would highly recommend GE Masana to photograph your wedding -you will not be disappointed!“
Laura and Robert Kicinski, Huntington, NY
“G.E. Masana is a master wedding photographer — artistic and inobtrusive, enthusiastic and professional. We were married 10 years ago this fall and still greatly treasure GE’s work, which is hung around our home and those of relatives and friends.”
Jen Chapin (daughter of legendary singer-songwriter Harry Chapin)
“You truly are a talented man who doesn’t just take a ‘picture’ of the bride and groom but captures a beautiful memory that no one else is able to see!“
Renee and Charles Powell, Melville NY
“You truly captured not only the emotions and moments but the essence of our wedding. The day will never be forgotten thanks to your amazing images. You told a story, our story, just as you said you would, and thanks to your talent I do not regret not having a videographer there at all! You’re a wonderful photographer – artist!”
Annmarie and Lou Sianno, Massapequa NY

“Anyone who has seen the photos from my wedding is in awe. You are truly an artist. I would recommend you anytime! “
Patty Hanson, Designer, LaDue Design, NY
“From the moment we met G.E. one year before our wedding to the day of the wedding, he was spectacular. The nicest, most honest person you will ever meet. Not only did he produce unbelievable pictures that were ‘magazine quality’, but he was warm, friendly, and always caught the moment at the right time. I had no idea he was taking some of the pictures that I received which made for an even greater experience once I viewed all my pictures.
Thank you! From the bottom of our hearts, you made this day to remember that much easier.”
Margaret & Brian Scheidel, Little Neck, NY
“The problem we are facing is that after seeing your work we have not been able to find anyone comparable. To be honest with you we were hoping to stumble across a website that was even close to your work at a lower price but have not been able to find it. You are extremely talented and it shows in your work and after seeing your albums and the photos on your website Jay and I can’t imagine anyone else photographing our wedding. We have this fear that if we do book someone else that after all is said and done and we receive our wedding album we will regret not having used you.”
Marie Orioles, Melville, New York

NYC wedding couples are evidently talking about G.E. Masana! I’m honored by the comments and testimonials I receive from brides and grooms about their wedding photography.
Obviously you shouldn’t choose any wedding photographer based solely only on testimonials alone but most of my wedding couples tell me it was a combination of information, testimonials from other brides and grooms, and of course my wedding photography that would lead them to hire G.E. Masana to be their NYC wedding photographer.
By the way, even though testimonials are the expression of opinions and as such are fully protected by the First Amendment, and even though these are actual, unedited real testimonials from real bridal couples, testimonials and reviews that express opinions using absolute phrases like “best wedding photographer in NYC”, “Best NYC wedding photographer”, “Outstanding photographer for weddings in New York”, etc., make me blush…
So if possible, when you write your opinion about me and the wedding photography I did for you, please try not to use any of the following general phrases:
G.E. Masana is a great photographer for NYC weddings
G.E. Masana is the best wedding photographer in NY
G.E. Masana provided excellent wedding photos for my NY wedding
G.E. Masana did excellent photography for my wedding in NYC
But if you can be more specific and exact about what I did that thrilled you about your wedding photos, I’d love to hear more about it! Thank you.
