Morgan, Jason & Hachi - Engagement Session

When we met Morgan,  Jason and Hachi on the Lower East Side for their engagement session, we were a little worried that they didn’t bring a designated dog sitter. A few photos with the pup could be fun, but to have him there for the entire shoot? We weren’t sure how long he was going to last. To our surprise, Hachi could not have been a better 3rd wheel. He was calm, cooperative, and an all around pleasure to photograph. Morgan & Jason were so happy to have him there, he is truly part of their family. I hope we see him again at the wedding!!

A farewell to Mary Tyler Moore

November 23, 1983. I remember the day so well. Fred Marcus Studio was asked to photograph the wedding of Mary Tyler Moore and Dr. Robert Levine. The wedding was at the Pierre Hotel and I remember the bride looking spectacular and her handsome groom looking very sharp. Both could not have been nicer and we had a lot of fun taking the photographs. My favorite moment of the night was taking a photograph of the entire Mary Tyler Moore Show cast including the bride and groom. A guest at the wedding that I had done work for asked me how I got to photograph Ms. Moore’s wedding, I just looked at him and said that I watched all her reruns. I was lucky enough to go to her apartment, that was on Central Park West at the time, and sit with her to review her selections for the album. She gave me a tour of their magnificent apartment and made me feel like I was her best friend. You will be missed. – Andy Marcus

Happy New Year!

As December draws to an end I would like to take a moment to thank you all for your loyalty and support. 2016 has been a particularly memorable year at our studio. We photographed so many beautiful events with so many wonderful clients and on a personal note, we experienced an exciting addition and a tremendous loss. My son Freddy was born on October 9th and seems to have inherited his great-grandfather’s contagious smile. He has already brought our family so much joy and we can’t wait to see what life has in store for him.

On a sadder note we also said goodbye to our matriarch, Gerda Marcus. She worked by her late husband Fred’s side for almost half of her life and her gentle nature and grace will be missed and remembered forever. I feel so blessed that she was alive to meet Freddy and was even able to attend his bris. The photographs of them together from that day are just incredible. I have looked at them countless times and have them framed on my desk. They are truly priceless to me and serve as a reminder of how important Fred Marcus Studio is to so many people. We take our job creating and preserving your memories very seriously and at the end of an emotional year we wanted to take a moment to thank you for trusting us for so many years to do this for you. We wish you only love, health and laughter and of course, many many happy occasions in the coming year.
