it’s happening

To our friends and clients

As we begin the painfully slow process of reopening, and are now beginning to get back some of our supply chain, we look forward to reopening and serving you again.

  • Existing and outstanding orders, depending upon their nature, may be able to be filled.
  • Simple reprint orders are OK, and we will offer curbside pickup.
  • Albums, Books, and Framed Portraits may still be waylaid.

As we move forward, we will post our reopening plan, including general information, as well as information pertaining to photo-sessions, consultations, and pickup/delivery.

Thank you for your patience and continued patronage during this very unusual time.

WHEN CAN WE GET BACK TO NORMAL?

As this crisis subsides, we want to give you a status update.

At this moment we are still temporarily closed under the New Jersey orders for non-essential businesses. All of us here have been ‘out of work’ since the beginning of March when we saw the writing on the wall. While we can communicate with our vast network of clients and friends via FB and DM, it does not replace normal business practice and interaction. We’ve been able to answer calls and emails, but unfortunately, that’s about it. We are anxiously awaiting getting back into the swing of things. We look forward to full and complete operations, with anticipated “normalcy” by mid-June. 

  • We’re closely watching the events and news updates for the latest information.
  • Big gatherings, like weddings and parties, are still off the table. But we should be able to work with individuals and small groups soon. We have always had a lower risk environment, because we have always been, and remain, ‘by appointment only’.
  • We have additional plans to protect staff and clients, make the physical workspace safer, and implement processes that lower the risk of infection.
  • The initial restart may restrict some of what and how we normally do things, but will have no effect on the quality you deserve.

We know some of you may be asking, “When will I get my order?” or “When can we place new orders?”

Right now, we encourage reprint orders, along with pre-booking sessions and events for future dates. Albums, books and non-stocked framrs will have to wait a little longer, but we promise once we start, we will produce as much as we can, as fast as we can without sacrificing our quality.

Our top priority is the health, well-being, and comfort level of our clients. We will continue to monitor the situation, keep you updated as often as practical, and look forward to a better time.

Thank you for your continued support, good-will and patience during the work closure! Keep the positive vibes coming in. We miss you all, and hope to see you soon.

Thanksgiving WISHES

Thank you to all those friends and clients that make our business possible.
It is in the spirit of this holiday, we wish all of you good times with friends and family.

Lifestyle Communion Portraits

Formal or informal, Capone Photography will create a beautiful Communion portrait of your son or daughter. Capture this very special time in their lives.

Graduation Photos

Unhappy with the ones you got from the school? Missed your day to get them taken? Want something a little better than everyone else?

Whether it’s preschool, 8th grade, high school or college, we can create a beautiful ‘cap and gown’ image to mark this milestone. Private sessions, just for you. No rushing. And probably for less than what you’d pay the school!

Continuing Education

As Executive Director of one of only 10 such schools in the entire country, I help run a school for other photographers. The Mid-Atlantic Regional School of Professional Photography (MARS) is a phenomenal event. Instructors and students come from all across the country to learn the art of photography and join in the camaraderie of like minded creatives. This group photo of our 23rd year students was taken on the beautiful beach in Cape May, NJ

MARS Class of 2019

We tell the story of FAMILY LIFE through pictures

From engagements to weddings to first child to the next milestone, we are honored and blessed to be able to document the events in people’s lives.

LBBC – Butterfly Ball 2018 – the Loews – Philadelphia, PA

We are always honored to be part of something special. The 2018 Butterfly Ball, supporting LBBC and those that are survivors of breast cancer, was an extraordinary event — nearly 700 guests and patrons, an amazing  ( we mean AMAZING ) silent and live auction (how’s an African Safari or a weeks stay at a Villa in Tuscany with private chef grab you?).  Great atmosphere, great food, great people, great cause.  Really fantastic to be able to cover this event.
