Testimonials

Deb is absolutely amazing. She was truly wonderful to work with, she captured every special moment of my wedding day, and she was great to be around. I am SO glad she was the photographer at my wedding. I knew from our e-mails and phone calls alone that she'd be fantastic, and she was. Deb was very professional and kind, and kept me from being a stressed out bride! I felt very comfortable in her presence, and was confident from the moment we spoke that she'd do an excellent job. She and Tom were a dream to work with. Also, my photos were given to me much faster than I thought would be possible!- Caitlin Petrizzi

Deb did all the photos for our NYC production of Two Gentlemen of Verona last summer. From press photos to production photos, she was a gem to work with, produced gorgeous shots, turned everything around in plenty of time, and did I say she was a gem to work with?

---------------------------------------------------------------------Deb Failla has been heaven-sent for the Darien Players. We've churned through photographers like water looking for the right combination of services and cost and we've found it in Deb. She does the publicity photos for all of our shows and her professionalism is only exceeded by her talent. Plus, she's a joy to be around, which is not insignificant for our purposes.- Dan Friedman, Vice President, Darien Players -----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------From the moment we spoke with Deb Failla on the phone, we knew she was going to be great to work with. She was extremely enthusiastic and focused on our needs more than anything else. We were initially looking for typical cultural Indian shots for our backyard wedding reception and had e-mailed Deb examples of some typical poses characteristic of wedding photography in India. Deb took these shots into consideration and not only could she emulate their style, she went above and beyond with her unique angles, crisp clear shots and superior editing. We were truly amazed at some of the breathtaking imagery Deb was able to capture of the entire wedding scene and her detailed artistic and modern shots of table arrangements, decor, and poses. Additionally, she was able to take outstanding stills of several dance performances. Deb overextended herself to accommodate our needs and we are so glad that she was a part of this special event. She outperformed any Indian photography we have seen and we will most definitely be using her in the future. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to cherish our special day in its natural beauty! - With Love, The Jawed Family-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------In my 25 years as a professional actor, I've seen only a few photographers who have been able to capture the essence of a play that they were shooting promotional still photos for. Having had the pleasure of being "shot" by Deb Failla in 4 different theatre productions now, I can say that she is one of those choice few, and certainly the only one I've worked with in CT. Deb's ability to capture both the action and emotion of a scene in her photos is a rare talent, and she does it without interfering with the actors on stage, or "posing" people in artificial scenes. I'm glad to know her and to have her in my "book" of quality professionals. - Raymond G. Michaud-----------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------Too often theatre production shots fail to capture the artistry of a live production, but this is not the case with Deb Failla's photos. Not only are Deb's photos intelligently shot, but her ability to capture moments that epitomize the essence of a character and a scene are breathtaking. Clearly the fact that Deb is a theatre artist in her own right gives her an advantage over just about any other photographer in this line of work. And how lucky for us! Thanks, Deb. - Jeanine A. DeFalco, Artistic Director of Falcon Repertory Company---------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------Deb's skills as both a portrait and event photographer are outstanding. For headshots, she is able to capture the essence of the sitter. Her style is relaxed and fun, and she has an innate ability to get so many great photos. Her skills as a party photographer are also first-rate; she is able to photograph the key elements of the event and guests, and she will go that extra mile for her clients! - Lynn Villency Cohen-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------ALL of the photos were quite lovely, it was hard not to order a shot or two from every scene because your pictures really captured the drama and dynamics of the show. - Jessie Gilbert-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------Deb was a real treat to work with! From the beginning she was open to any ideas I had, any places I might want to shoot while providing the right guidance to ensure a professional shot. She was very knowledgeable of the current trends, gave me tips on what to wear, and how to prepare hair and makeup. The day of the shoot she was very accommodating and helped me decide which outfits would work best. She took plenty of photos in several angles, poses and settings, all the while making sure that they allowed my character and natural poise to shine through. Within a week my contact sheets were up on her website where I was able to compare and group all my shots to help make a choice. We were always in contact through the whole process, and I never felt rushed to make any decisions. I would definitely recommend Deb for anyone! She is exceptionally professional, good-natured, accommodating, and skilled at bringing out the best in people through photos. And I'll probably use her again in the future! - Amber Gordon-----------------------------------------------------------------------
