My name is Marcelo Valente, I grew up in Elizabeth, NJ. I am a wedding and Portrait photographer and I am taking the first steps to become a filmmaker. I’m a father of two amazing boys (Enzo and Raphael) and husband to my gorgeous wife (Gio). I love everything about photography, and the way people react when they see a well-taken portrait of themselves or describe a portrait that has been hanging on their wall for years.
When my son Enzo was just a few months old, I decided to quit a well-paid job, to start an uncertain photography career. At the beginning, I was never sure if I had made the right decision. But somehow, it worked out, and today, we own a 2000sq ft studio located on the heart of the Ironbound Section of Newark, NJ. I thank all my clients that continue to refer me to all their loved ones!
Here at the Studio, we feel that photography should be fun, relaxing and exciting all at the same time. The Idea is to merge your personality with our ability to shape light. Each and every one of our clients is given the "Star Treatment", whether it's for a full-out wedding, maternity, boudoir, family portraits, or something as simple as business head shots. We take the utmost care in ensuring that not only do our clients receive top-notch photographic services, but we also pride ourselves in making the entire experience a memorable one. This, in turn, helps create great, high quality images that you will love and enjoy for many, many years.
On behalf of the Marcelo Valente Studio family, thank you for visiting. Feel free to browse through our images, comment on them on social media, and if you like what you see, don't hesitate to contact us. We would love to have the opportunity to be a part of one of the most special and important moments of your life, through the way of imagery.
