erin and mark | wedding | the showboat

erin and mark have serious style.  erin is soooo good at making things, she made her own bouquet, centerpieces, and even the boutineers for the guys.  the bouquet was made out of pages from the odyssey, that is quite literally epic! :)  so badass!  they got married in atlantic city at the showboat and i found a ton of cool, unique, and downright awesome photographic opportunities while shooting there!

Erin & Mark- What an awesome wedding! I’m disappointed we weren’t able to be part of your special day, but I’m so glad that I was able to point you towards Pat. It looks like it was such a fun day.

Pat- You rocked it man… and you owe me lunch. hahaha Awesome shots!

tim dinofa - f 7, 09 - 5:54 pm

i don’t know what i like more.. the composition, the amazing couple, the details, or the fact that you pulled off some ridiculously awesome images in a room that is as dark as they come. clap clap…

erin - f 11, 09 - 12:47 am

Pat! Speechless…we couldn’t be happier. THANK YOU!!

erin - f 11, 09 - 2:13 am

Amazing shots… what lens(es) were you using for the whole shoot? Also, for the last few shots at the dance floor, was there an off camera flash behind everyone? Or was that just a spotlight? Love the effect!

words by dana ricci

Q: How would you describe your style of photography?

My work is very aesthetically engaging. It’s very modern, very edgy, it’s very ‘hey he’s Pat Furey, he takes great pictures and we trust him.’ My style becomes a very personal thing and I get a lot of love because I’m not just a photographer, I’m an artist.

Q: When you’re at a wedding, what kinds of things do you look for?

Light. Emotion. Details. Composition.

Q: What do you expect from your couples?

I don’t expect anything. Instead, I work to gain trust. Trust is what allows me to capture the images that I do. Trust, style, and creativity are very important to me and these attributes are equally as important to the couples I collaborate with. I’m really blessed by those who choose to have me at their wedding.

Q: Are you available to travel?

I’m available to travel internationally (for a fee, of course). Travel to most of New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York City is included in your investment.

Q: What kind of albums do you provide?

I provide flush-mount albums exclusively. You have the option of picking your cover: modern photo-canvas or a contemporary leather. My albums are pretty epic and I love showing them off.

Q: Do you shoot digital or film?

All digital. I’m rocking a Canon 5D MkII, Canon 5D, and bunch of really high-quality Canon lenses. My current favorite is the 35L, that lens is breathtaking.

Q: Can we customize our wedding investment?

You’re welcome to swap anything your heart desires. If the products you wish to substitute aren’t of equal value, just add the difference to your investment.

Q: What is your turn around time like for our images? What about the album?

if your wedding is on a weekend, i usually have a blog post up later in the week to hold you over. expect it to take 2-3 weeks from the date of your wedding before your proofing/ordering gallery goes live. a month after your wedding, I’ll send you an album pre-design in which you’re allowed to make one round of revisions on. if you love what i’ve designed for you, i’ll send it to print and you’ll have it in 2 months from the date of your wedding. if you need to make revisions doing so in a timely fashion is key. once i get your revision ideas, expect it to take up to 2 weeks to redesign the album. after the redesign, I’ll send it to get printed. if you need to make revisions to your album, you’ll typically have it 3 months after your wedding (if you don’t drag your feet).icon smile frequently asked questions. and stuff.

Q: Do you bring backup equipment to weddings?

I wouldn’t feel right making images at your wedding unless I had duplicates of all my camera equipment. At the end of the night, all of your images are immediately backed up to at least three locations before I head to bed.

Q: We think you’re awesome and we’d love to have you shoot our wedding, what’s next?

All I need to book your date is a signed contract and a 50% retainer. Once that’s done, it’s all legit.
