Andy Marcus Bio

I have been in the business of photographing weddings for over 50 years. I have steadily built up our studio’s reputation, as the photographers to use, in the New York area, as well as internationally. As the president of Fred Marcus Studio, I've established a clientele comprised of the most prominent families and business leaders in the country. Their strong loyalty, that spans generations, is derived from an ethic of uncompromising quality and customized service. This path has brought the highest end clients in the New York area to our door. I combine the best of great posed photography and very exciting photojournalism to give my clients the most unique, thorough, wedding coverage in the country today. While quality should remain consistent, no two wedding albums should ever look exactly the same. To this end, we have kept our staff small and accepted only weddings that we can handle with our own photographic “family”.  Alongside my son, Brian, we have photographed the weddings of Eddie Murphy, Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump. Kelsey Grammer, Mary Tyler Moore, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, Billy Baldwin and Chynna Phillips, as well as the daughter and granddaughter of Mario Cuomo, former Governor of New York State. Most recently we had the honor to photograph basketball superstar LeBron James wedding in California.
