Name: Fran Gagnon Films


Where are you located, and what geographical area(s) do you service?
We're located in South Windsor, CT and we service anywhere in Southern New England and the New York metropolitan area. We'll actually consider going anywhere for the right job.

How long have you been in business?
We've been in business since 1989 - back in the days of VHS tape and big bright lights that would sear your eyebrows off.

What drew you to photography as a profession?
As a frustrated artist I was always on the lookout for a medium that would satisfy my creative inner self. Film making has provided a sweet combination of technology and artistry that allows us to tell a story in a creative manner. Most importantly, however, we love preserving the most important day in young people's lives. This is a watershed day in their history and we give them the opportunity to cherish and reflect upon it with their loved ones and future generations of their families. This is a stunningly beautiful and meaningful medium when done the right way.

What do you feel sets you apart as a photographer?
The fact that I'm short, fat and bald. (Wait a minute - that actually describes most videographers!!). Actually, we've established ourselves at the forefront of the wedding industry through our innovative style. We offer a cinematic, documentary style that is unique in the industry. Most of our work is referral from people who have seen our work and know our long standing reputation for quality and dependability.

What do you love most about your job?
The fact that I can work from my home in my underwear.

If you had to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
One word couldn't possibly describe me. I'm way too complex for one word. Oh, okay. I'll try. How about honest?
