A BRIEF HISTORY OF CASSARINO STUDIOS
Joseph Cassarino, the founder, and George Petty, who became partner ten years later, continue to consult pro bono. Their experience, wisdom, and passion is unequaled in the wedding photography field. Joe and George were legends in the photo industry and they built the most respected and trusted name in the history of wedding photography. Many of the same photographers Joseph Cassarino trained over twenty years ago, when those photographers were only in their teens, are still employed at Cassarino Studios. Cassarino Studios also pioneered the concept of including images (negatives at that time) with each package in the late 1980s. Joseph was of the belief clients should posess the images, and thus Cassarino Studios was the first studio ever to include the images. Eventually, all photo studios in America followed Cassarino Studios' policy and included the images with each package.
Cassarino Studios also partnered with Joseph Benedetto of Marina Del Rey fame in the 1990's and owned a very successful photo studio inside the impeccable Marina Del Rey Caterer that satisfactorily serviced hundreds of brides each year. The standards were high and the clientele demanding. However, Cassarino Studios earned their reputation by pleasing each and every bride and groom. Jo Jo as many called Joseph Benedetto, along with the impeccable banquet managers, Joe Savino and Joe (Joey) Orzo, along with deceased owner, Sal Randazzo, of Marina Del Ray, forever remain in the heart and soul of Cassarino Studios. Marina Del Rey proudly recommends Cassarino Studios to their elite clientele and Cassarino Studios is in tremendous gratitude for the respect, friendship, and bond we maintain with Jo Jo, Joe and Joey.
Nick Leone, the deceased, former owner of Jericho Terrace is another icon who remains in the heart and soul of Cassarino Studios. The Jericho Terrace Caterer was the first to recommend Cassarino Studios in the late 1980's after Nick Leone heard about Cassarino's tremendous reputation for artistry. That same year, Anthony Scotto of Scotto Hospitality Group gave Cassarino Studios the biggest boost ever by adding Cassarino Studios to his honored vendor list of wedding professionals in all of his newly refurbished, landmark catering establishments. Anthony Scotto is alive and young, and still operating several of the most opulent catering facilities on Long Island, including the most sought after North Shore steak houses the world has "ever seen"!

Cassarino Studios can honestly claim, we never, ever would have become the success we have become, without the kindness of our very dear friends in the catering and hospitality industry. Friendships were generated, respect commanded and love formed. Even in death, our love for our friends continues, being they live infinitely in our hearts and through the thousands of photographs we have taken in their exquisite facilities, and where their energy is transferred via the photographs.
Another person, energy and force of nature who lives in Cassarino Studios' heart, is the retired, Ric Mango of Ric Mango's Orchestra. Rick, formerly of the band Jay and The Americans, created the most amazing wedding band on Long Island during the 80's and 90's. Whenever there was an opulent, high end wedding on Long Island, you could rest assured, Ric Mango Orchestra's was playing. Cassarino Studios paired extremely well on these high end weddings, and both Cassarino Studios and Ric Mango's Orchestra loved nothing more than pleasing our most distinguished guests.
