Answer The Call NYC Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund

NewYorkPoliceFireWidowChildrensBenefitFund_WaldorfAstoria-28.jpg

I'm always honored to photograph the New York Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund events, and Answer the Call is dear to many hearts. Held at Waldorf Astoria before they underwent renovations, it was a memorable event with Mark Messier of the New York Rangers and Rusty Staub of the New York Mets who founded the non-profit organization. Along with the many people who have Answered the Call, their annual gala event has raised funds to help the children, wives, husbands of fallen police officers and firemen/women who lost their lives while helping New York.

New York Mets & Citi Field Hosts Answer The Call's Annual Game and Family Day Event

NYC_Photos_Answer_The_Call_Mets_CitiField_AngelicaCriscuoloPhotography-0082.jpg

The New York Police & Fire Widows' & Children's Benefit Fund held its 33rd Annual Game and Family Day hosted by the Mets at CitiField. With former Mets player Rusty Staub, also the founder of the organization, a selected number of children of fallen heroes threw the first pitch. Cormac Fahy (son of Deputy Chief Fahy), Peter Vega (son of Detective Familia), Ryan Lemm (son of Detective Lemm), and Austin Tuozzolo (son of Sgt. Tuozzolo). Their siblings and/or their family stood by them on the mound.  Citi Field NY Mets Event Photographer

One of the sweetest moments I saw during the event was with Mets closing pitcher, Addison Reed, coming out of the bullpen with Asdrubal Cabrera's bat in hand. Reed presented the bat to Austin Tuozzolo. The moment was so casual, that if you weren't looking, you would have missed the impromptu one-on-one gift exchange. Not sure what prompted the meet, but it seemed Austin wasn't sure what was happening so his mom and I were encouraging him to accept the gift from Addison Reed! Such a sweet child. Austin may have a future as a pitcher and he used all his pitching skills to throw the ball to ceremonial catcher Renee Rivera. Austin and his 4-year-old brother, Joseph, lost their father Paul, an NYPD sergeant, in a Bronx shootout last year. 

Team players during an autograph session with the Answer The Call beneficiaries, were also happy to pose with Genesis Villella and her sibling twins Delilah Vega and Peter Vega. Their mother Officer Miosotis Familia, recently fell in the line of duty. Peter threw the first pitch for his family. Players that signed autographs included pitcher Steven Matz, outfielder Brandon Nimmo, catcher Renee Rivera, pitcher Paul Sewald, Fernando Salas, and pitcher Erik Goedell, Zack Wheeler.

Ryan Lemm was also honored to throw a pitch to Rivera. His father, Detective Joseph Lemm was killed on December 21, 2016 with five fellow soldiers by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan. Cormac Fahy, the son of FDNY Batallion Chief Michael Fahy who passed away during a house explosion in the fall of 2016, threw a ball as well. Seeing them both nod to Rivera after the pitch, it was a very heartwarming moment.

New York Event photos First Pitch ceremony Answer The Call

Although the organization reminds us of how important they are in supporting many families of fallen heroes, they are also imperative in creating a fun atmosphere where the beneficiaries can come together and remember their fallen parents, siblings, and family members and friends in a happier setting. The smiles and laughter shared during the event was something to see and feel. It was humbling and glad Angelica Criscuolo Photography and other vendors answered the call to help with the event at CitiField.

Twilight's Peter Facinelli who plays Carlisle Cullen, was in NYC celebrating SEARS Outdoor Life mens clothing launch. SEARS recently launch the new clothing line in over 800 stores and on www.SEARS.com. The new clothing from SEARS caters to men who love the outdoors with a blend of casual sportswear and performance clothing as well as style and comfort. Peter Facinelli was dressed from head to toe wearing the new clothing line and he definitely looked like the most outdoorsy person out of the Twilight Cullen family. I'm happy that LDC Design asked me to take a part of their latest event as they created the outdoor campsite in the middle of Time Square NYC. Check out a few pictures below.

We absolutely love adding on our InstaMemory Booth open-air photo booth to all our New York and New Jersey wedding and event packages!!! Here's a few teasers from Elisabeth & Rob's New York open-air photo booth photos in Aurora restaurant in Brooklyn's Williamsburg. The photo booth was a hit! The props and Mr. Met prop (courtesy of the bride as a gift to the groom who is a huge New York Mets fan!) was used through out the dancing portion of the reception. Even the staff of Aurora took part in the festivities! OK, so we also jumped in the fun since it's definitely a must!

Macy's 4th of July Fireworks | East River | Independence Day

Happy Independence Day everyone! Hope you're all enjoying the amazing fireworks celebrating this amazing county! Having hundreds of people with their camera phone or their iPad up in the air didn't faze me. I mean, every wedding reception is like a sea of smartphones and iPads. It is what it is! For my fellow photographers, how did you photograph the Macy's 4th of July fireworks celebration in the East River for the Independence Day celebration? Or fireworks wherever you were this evening?

To share my settings, I set my wide angel on my tripod and the lens was set to infinite on manual. I used Bulb mode with aperture ranging from f5.6-f13 (mostly at f/11) and ISO 100. I pressed my cable release for 4-10 seconds at a time, or to fulfill a full starburst with the rocket shooting up in the air to get the tail, the the fireworks prior to it disappearing. I tend to not follow the trails all the way at the end since the trails tend to be not as crisp and it becomes "messy" to my eyes. To each their own!

Congratulations to V + C... two beautiful women who deserves much happiness! Everyone had a great time at Le Petit Maison. The event was gorgeous with Ted Martinez Event Management, www.tedmartinez.com, planning, designing and executing the festivities perfectly. Many thanks to Ted for reaching out to Angelica Criscuolo Photography so I can have the honor of photographing V+C's surprise proposal! That will be in the next post and yes I'm doing things backwards :-). I'm very glad they also decided to have me capture their engagement party held in NYC with only a few close family and friends in attendance. V + C met through a mutual friend who introduced them and they are grateful to have met and are now planning their new life together. When they walked into Le Petit Maison, the ladies and guests were awestruck with the floral arrangements! I couldn't blame them since I also felt like I was in a fairytale and that was thanks to Ivie Joy Flowers + Events providing the gorgeous floral designs. If you enjoy the beauty of this gorgeous engagement soiree, here are the other vendors responsible for the wonderful details:

Portraits Are More Than Paper - Why photographs are very important and lasts forever....

Today I read a post by Jeanine Thurston, re-posted by so many photographers and non-photographers alike, and the letter that created the post stirred old memories that I too had to post it: http://fototails.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/a-letter-on-my-doorstep-portraits-are-more-than-paper/ After reading the letter, I cannot help but feel this person's regret of not understanding how pictures are so much more lasting than "trivial" items. Portraits and photographs  are more than a piece of paper, since it helps memorialize an event or a person or a special memory of a newborn being born or children growing up with families, a wedding, and more. From time to time I do get the "oh no! there she is again!" when I take out my camera and start photographing family and friends when we're together privately or out so I can capture those memories.  Many say their memories are in their mind and do not need photographs or videos of an event, but for me, personally, I love having a tangible visual of an event or memory with my husband, family and friends. Why do I do it? I do it because I know memories are fleeting. Getting older, my memory is not what it was years ago...and that is scary. How many times have we told ourselves I'll remember this moment forever...but later stumble upon a picture (maybe years or weeks later) taken by someone else and you truly forgot that moment occurred? I LOVE going through my pictures from time to time and remembering time spent with those I love. I have folders of digital images going back from 1999 with a miscellaneous folder where I added scanned images of older paper photographs.

Maybe some think that going overboard...and some may think its not...but each of us must do what feels right and capturing memories the way I know how feels the right way. I also take pictures because I know often time pictures are all we may have left of someone one day. A sad thought but true...and it was true for Karen L. who wrote the letter. Her letter has made this past hour an emotional roller coaster, leaving people wondering why I look like I've been crying...so here I am pretending to have a cold, but in reality I'm remembering the feeling of not having that picture I wanted and needed of someone who suddenly passed on. When my father passed away in 2007, I was creating a memorial board of him, and realized that the last picture I took with him and I alone was taken...well I couldn't find one. Honestly the last good one (not blurry or anything else) was from 2001 when I graduated college. There was one picture from my birthday party my dad threw for me at his house in 2005 that had me, him and my siblings together, and I had to cut out my siblings so I can frame that picture of me and my dad in my apartment. The picture was also blurry, but it was all I had standing next to him. Other pictures before he passed was of me taking the picture, or a group picture. Just remembering that realization made me panic. This was the eve of my father's wake and I'm scrambling to find pictures of my dad and me and I couldn't find a one.

Photographs of any event or a portrait of your family or pictures with friends are something that should not be taken for granted. For many they are not just a want or a need, but a priceless memory that can be passed on. If you haven't read Karen L's letter, read on: http://fototails.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/a-letter-on-my-doorstep-portraits-are-more-than-paper/

Thank you Jeanine for posting this letter. Karen L. and many more are in my prayers.

Happy Holidays 2011 from New York Wedding Event Lifestyle Photographer Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Y&J Multiplicity by Robert Verdi - The Glasshouses

Acclaimed celebrity stylist, TV personality and designer Robert Verdi partnered with Yasmin & Jazmin to conceive the Y&J Multiplicity jewelry line. Celebrities, the media, and Verdi's friends were all at The Glasshouses on November 17, 2011 in Chelsea, New York City, to celebrate the preview of Verdi's creation, with the aid of LDC Design Associates . Verdi's inspiration stemmed from a trip to India and each piece show  the intricate work that is common in the entire collection. Verdi's good friend actress/comedian Kathy Griffin stopped by as well as Kelly Rutherford who plays Lily van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl; Acess Hollywood and Extra correspondent Maria Menounos; model/actress/producer Katie Chonacas; famed Heroes cheerleader Hayden Panettiere; daughter of famed Rolling Stone founder Keith Richards, Alexandra Richards who DJd the event; model/actress and famous DJ Sky Nellor who was recently on The Million Matchmaker and Paz de la Huerta who currently plays Lucy Danziger in Boardwalk Empire (who by the way was giving out a spoiler for the show!...like the baby she is carrying will unfortunately die at the end of season 2...sad.... ). A classy event filled with amazing people and definitely a night to remember.

Modern and Classy New York City Wedding at Rouge Tomate

2011-10-22RougeTomateWeddingCollageWEB.jpg

What a spectacular wedding at Rouge Tomate! The bride was beautiful with her simple gown and veil, which she finished with beautiful pearls. She carried a gorgeous bouquet designed by Celadon and Celery Events, who also conceived and implemented the design for the wedding. Rouge Tomate closed for the day, to many patron's regret (I do not blame them since the food is amazing!...yes, this photographer enjoys dinner and drinks at this well established Michelin rated restaurant!) since the main dining room was transformed into a cocktail space, and the lower level was transformed for the ceremony. The lower level was complete with a Chuppah adorned with orchids, candles, and roses. All in all, a very romantic and memorable evening! Congratulations again to the bride and groom! Modern & Classy New York City Wedding - Rouge Tomate by Angelica Criscuolo Photography

Engaged...now what? Consider a Destination Wedding!

Wedding006.jpg

Well congratulations new brides and grooms! You're engaged and cannot wait to start your future together! Now the, sometimes, dreaded questions..."where to start?" or "Now what?" comes along. That's where me and my now husband were almost two years ago, after the love of my life bought my engagement ring and popped the question. Of course from what I've been told he was a mess and researched the ring to death, learned the 4 C's, and questioned everyone about the process, but that's neither here nor there. Let's talk about the process of getting to the altar and what needs to be done. Unfortunately, we did the easy route...we opted for a destination wedding! It was truly the best decision we made and it was right for US. I guess I am biased when it comes to this topic, but let me share you our experience.

1. Choosing the venue...choosing a travel agent. For us, this goes hand in hand. We could have called hotels on our own and helped EVERYONE book their travel and accommodations, but we didn't particularly like the idea of the headache involved with someone needing to change their flight and making sure everyone was booked correctly. Instead, we researched agents that catered to Destination Weddings. Like many brides, I was hooked on The Knot and specifically on the Destination Wedding Board. We called ourselves DW KNotties and it was a great board to find help and advice. Many of the ladies used DestinationWeddings.com or Beach Bum Vacations. We liked the first and everything after that was easy...sort of!

2. Choosing the location. This was harder to do since we had a lot to consider. We definitely wanted the Destination Wedding. PERIOD. We knew many family and friends were not able to go (but you never know and guests may decide to come last minute) and if they really wanted to attend they'll be there. We also knew there were elderly aunts/uncles to consider so we also had to think about how they were going to travel. Add the fact we understand our families were on a budget, so we wanted to choose a location that was affordable, close to mostly everyone, and in a good price range that is also fun. Yea, a lot to look for, but first we set a budget, not for us necessarily, but for our guest. The budget was around $600-$900 for a 3-4 day weekend. To make it convenient for everyone, we chose an island in the east coast. We further narrowed it down to my husband not wanting to go to Jamaica, and me not wanting Mexico (all great locations by the way, so please go ahead and check them out!). In the end, with the help of our travel agent and the budget we gave him, he pointed us to Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. EXCELLENT! We looked at the venues within our budget for both islands and finally decided on Punta Cana, Dominican Republic...specifically Melia Caribe Tropical. It also helped that a few friends have stayed in the hotel and enjoyed it...PLUS it was an all-inclusive resort so the budget would include everyone's food. FOOD is very important in our family and with our friends so we had a winner. The images of the venue were great, had recommendations from friends, it was close to 90% of our guests, and it was budget friendly for a 3-4 day weekend.

3. Choosing a Wedding Package. For weddings, resorts will offer wedding packages that range from the basic to a regular wedding you would have in the U.S. MINUS the HUGE cost!  Since we've never really traveled other than cruises, we had no idea how hotels/catering/decor would be in any of the venues we may choose. Choosing the venue also meant choosing a package. So now that we did choose the venue, we needed to know what package to get and for how many people. We opted to send out a feeler evite/email to see how many truly wanted to attend. We let our guests know our decision to do a destination wedding, but wanted to get our guest's input on who was a real "yes" a "maybe" and a "no" and went from there. Around 80 responses said yes (out of 200+ guests) and so we worked with half that number and in the end ended up with over 65. Since we had a better idea of number of guests, we had our wedding coordinator at the hotel know the approximate range of guests that will be attending and she was more than happy to work with those numbers. FYI, we sent invites to everyone we invited and not just those individuals that replied "yes" to our evite/email feelers.

4. Catering/Flowers/Music: Unlike weddings in the states where a bride and groom would either need to get a wedding planner to suggest vendors, or the bride and groom themselves would research and book vendors on their own, me and my husband were shown what the hotel venue offered. For the reception it was either a sit down dinner with one option or a buffet with multiple options. For flowers they gave us samples of flower arrangements for bouquets and centerpieces that was part of our package. I love flowers and would loved to have brought in Celadon & Celery, but since they were booked we decided to trust the resort and pay additional for a "higher end" arrangement. We sent the wedding coordinator pictures of flower arrangements we loved and in the end they did an amazing job of creating a similar look. For Music we placed ceremony music, cocktail hour music, and reception music on a disc. We trusted the resort's DJ and I did hear from other Melia Caribe brides that they did a great job on their wedding.

5. Photography: This was dear to my heart, so not really being able to communicate with the resort's vendor, we opted to bring our own photographer - Amanda Blythe Photography from Louisiana - to capture our special day. Other brides loved the resort's vendor, so we decided to use them as our videographer. We also wanted a photo booth, but of course none of the U.S. based companies travel to the Caribbean. So being a photographer I got creative to make sure I got my way! We bought a small printer, downloaded a photo booth software on my laptop, and hooked up everything at the reception...well my bridesmaids did and everyone LOVED it. All guests needed to do was hit the space bar and pose 4 times to allow the laptop's camera to capture their picture and send it to the printer. We thought it was a hit and loved the line forming at the "photo booth" section.

6. Programs/Invitations: This is where we got creative. We created our own invitations and created the inner envelopes and added a ribbon to close the envelope. We decorated the outer envelopes using a custom made monogram and basically stamped away. The programs were created using the leftover paper stock for the inner envelope and used a heavier card stock to create the programs. We had a Catholic Ceremony so with the priest's help, we typed in our programs complete with readings, prayers, music list and traditional Filipino custom of the veil, rope, and candle ceremony.

7. Decorations: Using large and medium suitcases, we brought our decorations for the ceremony and reception! We created table numbers, fans, place cards, seating cards and more. The medium suitcase was placed inside the large suitcase and we asked someone to bring it back with them after the wedding weekend. We also bought parasols as decoration and props and created an out-of-town bag complete with a "medical kit," chopsticks and take-out boxes with candies to give something sweet to our guests, pom-poms to put on top of the napkin settings at the reception, bubbles instead of guests throwing rice or bird seeds and so much more!

10. Bridal Party: As with any bridal party, we asked if our friends/family can be part of the wedding as soon as we knew they were definitely coming. We didn't want to add the pressure of someone feeling pressured they had to come to the wedding since we just wanted them to come and celebrate our wedding and have fun. We bought everyone's dresses(RK Bridal-Alfred Angelo) and shoes for the ladies and flower girl. The men's Barong Tagalog (top) were custom made in the Philippines and we also got their pants, shoes and belts from a department store and sent shipped them all to each of them to make sure they fit. We, well ME, had a blasts shopping at Etsy that I found beautiful silk-touch flowers for me at PowderBlueBijoux and my bridesmaids at All4Brides. The  men got custom made boutonnieres from TheHeadbandShoppe and my husband's at YJDesign. Etsy is so great that we even found a lingerie name hanger from lilafrances and edible flowers for our wedding cake at MissErikas.

As for my dress, I tried my Enzoani dress "Diana" and fell in love with it! Just because we had a destiAnation wedding doesn't mean I couldn't wear the dress of my dreams! My husband got his gorgeous suit and shirt from Hugo Boss and got it tailored at the Soho location in New York City. We carried our dresses and suit with us as carry-on and the flight attendants allowed us to hang them in first class. Some brides have mentioned that certain airlines does not allow this, but we flew American Airlines and they were nice about making sure my dress (and another bride's dress) were hanging without a problem.
