Hi. My name is Gil and I am the President of Fade To Black New York. We have been in business for over 15 years. We are entering our 14th year in our Mineola Studio and we have expanded to South Florida 2 years ago. I have been in the Wedding business for many years. My experience goes beyond Weddings. I have been fortunate to work for News 12 Long Island, Fox 5 News, NBC Sports, CBS Sports, ESPN and more. It was shooting News stories that set the tone for how we shoot as a company. We like to shoot with a Candid and Photojournalistic approach. Our job is to tell your story, not ours. To work with your other vendors as a team to ensure your day is great! We want you have fun. Having fun with your Photographers and Cinematographers definitely shows in your product.

The Wedding Industry
We got into the Wedding industry to do what we love while celebrating great moments. You never know what you will see at a Wedding. Every couple is different and celebrates their big day in a different and unique ways. You never know what will happen and that is great! What different things will be at your Wedding? Enjoy the ride!!!
The Wedding Memories
It is hard to narrow down a Wedding memory. There have been so many. While I think of one great moment, another one pops up. There are so many. We just love when couples are themselves. Every Wedding should be different. Be unique. Wear sneakers, a black dress or anything else that makes you happy. Do whatever to make it the best day of your life.
Many people ask us why we named our Company Fade To Black New York. Is it because of the Metallica or Jay Z songs? If that works, sure. :) I left the task of naming my company to my boys. They came up with some interesting names. While shooting live National Events, the Director would always end the broadcast by saying Fade To Black. It kind of stuck. Today, my Son Anthony helps run the business. While we have a talented crew that works together, you will see at minimum, myself or Anthony at your Wedding. I do both Photo and Video. Anthony is one of our Photographers, our Graphic designer and our Photo Booths are his babies. : )
We often get asked why use Fade To Black New York. I always tell people there should be 3 things to look out for when choosing a Photographer/Cinematographer: 1. Great Product. You want to have an amazing product to look back on for the rest of your lives. 2. You should look to get get this great product at a price that works for you. 3. You should be comfortable with your team. What's the point of having the first 2 items but don't get along with your team? Your Photographer is the one vendor that you will work with the most and the one that most impacts your Wedding.
In my spare time, I am a Sports nut. In between our busy Wedding schedule my youngest and I are visiting every baseball stadium in the Country. Almost there! You will also find me catching as many Broadway Shows as possible.

We used Fade to Black for our wedding and they made the process painless and fun. They got some great shots and memories we will have forever! So glad we chose Fade to Black! Gil and his team are the best!
We had an amazing experience with Fade To Black! They were easy to work with and very accommodating. We got everything we wanted and more. We wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to capture our special moment. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer.
Gil, Anthony, and Phil were amazing! We had so much fun just being ourselves and taking photos.
We met the Fade to Black Team at a local convention, where they presented their brand and themselves as skilled and professional photographers. This they proved to be true. My now husband and I hired Fade to Black because of their work portfolio, additions that suited our wedding wants (an engagement shoot and the photo booth), and the friendliness that came with every conversation. Gil was our go to person for everything! He was very accommodating because we ended up being the Covid Wedding. Between the few date and time changes, Gil was right there with us. When our day finally arrived, Gil and his Fade to Black team were on it; they were ready to bring to life the day through a picture. When we received our pictures after our wedding, it was perfect. When deciding on the pictures we wanted for the album, it was so hard because we wanted all of them to fit! The album was gorgeous. From beginning to end, we couldn't be more happy with the decision to hire Fade to Black. Would highly recommend!
Used this crew for my wedding after meeting them at a show and through a friend. Amazing work, super easy to work with and the turn around time to get photos back was incredible. Highly recommend this vendor! Gil and his team are the best!
