There is no way to describe how amazing Frank and Glenn were at capturing our wedding day. The pictures are absolutely stunning, and beyond that they were so much fun to work with. They really got into the party and enjoyed being with our guests and documenting the entire day. Frank and Glenn are experienced, creative, and able to provide comic relief to a stressed out bride on her wedding day. They are honest people who love what they do and work hard to ensure that they exceed all expectations. If you are able to hire them for your big day YOU SHOULD! More...

I’m not sure if Facebook will give me enough space to type all the wonderful things I could say about Frank and his partner, Glenn. Frank is one of a kind to work with and helps you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. HE WILL MAKE YOU LOOK AMAZING and better yet, he will make you FEEL like a star. He knows how to capture the best moments and show case your best assets. On your wedding day or any other precious moment in your life you do not need any more stress then what you can not prevent... however, you can prevent from having a terrible photographer so hire a good one, but if you want an EXCELLENT photographer then you hire Frank!! 100000000 stars!!! ♥️♥️♥️ More...

Frank and Glenn were AMAZING! Our wedding party loved working with them and they really captured our day beautifully. Their knowledge of the Naval Academy created beautiful photos that our wedding guest are still talking about! They also listened to the creative ideas we had and captured our vision perfectly. We were able to enjoy our special day without stressing about what pictures needed to be taken because of the experience that Frank and Glenn brought. We highly recommend working with Formica Studios! Not only did the capture special moments, but they also captures special moments from different angels and truly made every photo beautiful. If we could give more than 5 stars, we 100% would! More...

Frank and Glenn are amazing! My original photographer fell through less than 2 months before the wedding and I emailed Frank in the evening in a near panic attack and Frank came to the rescue (within like 10 minutes). I learned of Frank through the Naval Academy because he is an approved vendor (which worked extremely well in my favor), he was so calm on the phone and went right into details about the "perfect" photo ops at the Naval Academy Chapel (which my original photographer knew none!) and then shared stories of his family and I really felt like I had a new friend once I got off the phone. We continued to follow-up via email and phone, he would call and check in on me and then we met him at his studio a couple days before where we looked at his photos and paintings (which are amazing) and picked our brains on what special moments we wanted to make sure to get. The day of, Frank and Glenn were there waiting for us with cameras and lighting already set up. The groom (who is not a photo fan) said that Frank and Glenn had him laughing and that the photo session was fun. Frank and Glenn work well together and their energy pumps up whoever is being photographed. They knew their stuff … knew how to light the specific spaces to really make us pop off the page. I am extremely happy with the service each of them provided, it was great not having a time limit, that really saved on stress and the pricing was extremely reasonable … OH - I totally had photos via electronic delivery the day after the wedding!! Granted our wedding was in March so right before wedding season, but still I never expected photos that quick! If you are looking for a photographer in Annapolis, MD - Frank and Glenn are your men!!

Frank and Glen spent time to work us in planning the photography session the weekend before the wedding and then spent 3 relaxed hours with us taking spontaneous and staged photos around the campus grounds.

Mr. Frank and Mr. Glenn were fantastic at our wedding on July 14th. They kept us in line, while we were so distracted by all our friends and family. They made us feel special and helped to capture the essence of our wedding day! Mr. Frank is so artistic with his shots, while Mr. Glenn caught the party atmosphere. We have over 1000 photos to choose from to decorate our home and add to our album. We love the shots that he made into painterly prints; we even purchased two more to give our parents! Thank you, Mr. Frank and Mr. Glenn for sharing our favorite day with us. We appreciate all your help! Shannon & Stephen Hawkins More...

F.Formica photography has now done two family weddings in Annapolis for us. In addition to being punctual, professional, detail oriented, flexible,and committed. .. the results were MAGNIFICENT!! Despite two very different locations... one at Naval Academy, medium to large indoor wedding, and one small outdoor in historic Annapolis, the brides had traditional and unique photos.Family and friend groupings were fun, lovely, crisp, and breathtaking. The couple photos, and bridal parties including .kids could be in magazines. I only wish he was available for my wedding! I ordered more pictures from these two than my own! More...

This is actually the second wedding Frank Formica has done for a family member.Two completely different venues... two equally MAGNIFICENT results. One at naval academy, indoor and another garden outdoor in historic Annapolis. At each, he captured beauty,humor, traditional poses, family moments, wedding attire, unique perspectives, and absolutely glorious timeless shots of the bride and the couple together. Many look like they should be in a magazine, let alone hanging in a frame on a wall. I only wish he was around when I married!!! I think I ordered more of my step daughter and brother-in-laws wedding photos done by Frank, than my own! More...

Good afternoon, Frank, I wanted to let you know the pictures came in the mail Wednesday. Thank you very much; it was very much appreciated. It was really fun looking at the pictures with my wife and the kids (who do not believe life existed before they came along.) I do not know if anything will come of it, but we have recommended you to two friends of ours who’s weddings are coming up this year. The more weddings we attend and the more wedding pictures we see, the more we are reaffirmed we made the correct choice for our wedding. As my wife says "everyone can take pictures, but not everyone is a photographer."Thank you again.Caleb More...

I used Frank Formica for my photography for my wedding and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality! He supplied 3 photographers to cover my wedding, ensuring no angle was missed at both the wedding ceremony and the reception! Unfortunately, life has been so busy the past 7 years that I just now contacted Frank to have my photo album put together! I had also had trouble condensing the pictures to meet the limitations of the album, which is another reason I kept putting it off. Well, even after 7 years, Frank took the time to sit down with me twice to go through and customize the album so that I would have the perfect album for years to come! He even worked it to where I could get all of my favorites in there, easing my concerns about the limitations of the album! He also got me a larger album to accommodate them! I truly couldn't be happier with both the quality of my album and the patience/professionalism that Frank displayed in creating my album for me, 7 years later! I would highly recommend this photographer!! Thank you, Frank!!! More...

Frank and team captured our wedding day perfectly. They created photo opportunities we would have never thought of. When you're tired of smiling for what feels like hours they were able to make us laugh and look natural. They were easy going and patient with the people they photographed. When random family or friends pulled out their phones to snap photos Frank waited patiently and even helped them capture the best photos by telling them where to stand or how to hold the phone according to the lighting. After the wedding we expected not to see any photos for weeks/ months. Two days after on our honeymoon we saw all of the photos and they were edited. We ordered a photo album. That process was great. He listened to what changes we wanted and paired it perfect with his idea of photo layouts and edits. The flow of our album is better than expected and was done in excellent time. I couldn't imagine going with anyone else as our wedding photographer. More...

Frank was an absolute professional, a joy and a delight to work with. His website is easy to understand and all of our pre and post wedding meetings ran on time and stayed on topic. As a military couple my husband and I were limited to our time in the Chapel at USNA. Frank made every moment count. His photos are absolutely beautiful and classic. I asked for several specific photos and Frank made sure to capture those moments. His prices are very reasonable and his turn around time for us was amazing. We were able to see our photos online in 2 days !!! We had a winter wedding so I'm sure this time could be extended during busy summer wedding months . Book with Frank, he is the best in Annapolis.

Formica Studios (Formica Photo) is an amazing photographer! Our daughter and husband are USNA grads and planned their destination wedding in Annapolis from half way around the world - Guam. What a magnificent experience we had with our photographers. Frank was amazing to work with before, during and after the wedding. He knew how to capture each moment of the day from the beginning through the end of the reception. His knowledge of those "special places" and how to incorporate the natural lighting, architecture, and surrounding grounds of the USNA campus was incredibly artistic. He and Glenn were fabulous at the chapel service and reception. Their enthusiasm and creativity was so much fun to work with all day long. They were familiar with the venue and had wonderful ideas of how to photograph our family and friends enjoying the day. They also took special family photos that incorporated very meaningful and personal (tender) moments that both families will cherish over the years. It was evident that they paid attention to detail and went above and beyond to capture each special moment. We were very please with our experience and encourage anyone looking for a photographer to definitely consider Formica Studio. You will not be disappointed. We are thrilled with our pictures!!!!

Frank Formica provided photography services for our daughter's wedding at Celebrations at the Bay located on the Chesapeake over the Memorial Day weekend. The quality of the work was nothing short of stunning. The photos looked like they belonged in a wedding magazine. Frank and his assistant arrived early and plotted how best to take advantage of the location's beautiful views and lighting. This enabled him to work quickly and fairly unobtrusively not impeding the flow of the ceremony and reception. The quality of both the posed shots the wedding party and family and "journalistic style" shots of the event were amazing. Taking full advantage of technology, Frank turned around the proofs within just a couple of days and provided access to photo selection not just to the bride and groom and immediate family, but everyone who provided him e mail addresses at the wedding so they could select pictures as well. Our only problem was deciding what photos to select for the album package we selected. In short, very quality work performed efficiently and very easy to work with. Highly recommend.
