Let me start out by saying that Vail is the best photographer you're going to get - hands down. The level of professionalism with a personal touch is higher than I could have ever expected. My wife and I first met with her for an engagement shoot. She traveled an hour to come shoot at the beach near where we lived, and even came early to be sure she knew where the best shots would be. We knew right away that we wanted her to be our wedding photographer as well. Vail was available through phone, email, and Facebook to help plan out the details of what we wanted. She scoped out the location before the wedding and felt comfortable telling us the location we chose might not be the best for photos and suggested an even better place (thank goodness she did). She showed up, with two assistants, to my wife's house early and helped her out with her dress and gave her encouraging words. One thing that you will never have to worry about with Vail is having her miss a shot. She will do anything to get the perfect shot - standing on chairs and laying on the floor is not uncommon! Keep in mind, she was far along in her pregnancy when she did all of this, and you can really tell she is doing what she loves. She rolls with the punches - when we wanted to have a few shots on the beach, she gave me some garbage bags to put on my feet so my shoes would not be covered in sand. When my wife's hair started to lose it's curls, she had a curling iron ready for her to go. The pictures came out PERFECTLY. You can view it on her site (June 2015). After the wedding, we went to visit her at her home and she had even made us cookies while we looked through our photos! I can't recommend this woman enough, if you choose her for your wedding, engagement, or anything else I promise you that you will not regret it. She will always remain a friend to me and my wife and I thank her for everything she's done for us.
AMAZING Photographer - Wedding Day SaverReviewed on 10/31/2014 Lara O
We called Vail because of her amazing portfolio of journalistic and formal shots. Few people can do both. The portraits looked natural, and she captured emotions like few others can. SHORT VERSION - her pictures of our wedding day were magnificent, and we couldn't have hoped for more. MORE DETAIL - After a few minutes of speaking with her, we knew she was the one - and OHMIGOSH are we lucky we did. Vail was there for us, literally there for us, every step of the way. Her responsiveness is unbelievable - and Vail was a guide through the whole wedding process. She helped us pick our florist, vidoegrpaher, honeymoon destination, bridal party gifts - Vail's care and compassion carries over into every single thing she does. A few immediate family members are cognitively impaired and have mobility issues. Vail drove to our hotel a month before (more than an hour from her house), scouted around, and found amazing locations right in the hotel parking lot. On the day of, one family member fell and cut his forehead deeply. Vail had her trusty "emergency kit" - she put an invisible band aid on - it was the perfect size to cover the cut (a big one), and no one really could even tell. She also fixed the bride's dress with pliers from her magic pack at one point. After the wedding, we heard similar stories from other family members about how Vail swooped in and made a situation better. She did so many behind the scenes kindnesses, that many in our family even called her our guardian angel. I think there's some truth to this. Vail has such a talent for building trust so people enjoy having their picture taken during the portraits. When our ring bearer and flower girl were shy, Vail did the most hilarious booty dance to get them laughing. She's known as the dancing photographer - and here's the scoop. Vail is an amazing dancer - she dances to capture the wonder of the event. She also dances to get people dancing- during a lull in our reception, Vail got a dance circle going, complete with people clapping. Then she swooped the bride and me (groom) for one of the best photo ops ever. Time and time again, we were blown away by her creativity. Did I mention the pictures were BREATHTAKING? Vail also does a preview slideshow on the i-pad, usually on display on a stand for the whole reception. She saw my parents, due to health issues, were kind of stuck at their table. So Vail changed the plan and brought the i-pad to them. They were so happy, and thrilled to see the pictures. And then, because she is brilliant and understands people so well, she brought the i-pad show to the bride's parents. Vail is one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. Since the photographer is the person you spend most of your day with, the fact that she is one of the most wonderful people we have ever met almost guarantees you will have the day of your dreams. With Vail's help, we did. And we are so blessed she was there to capture it.
Amazing!Reviewed on 10/21/2014 Katie H
Vail was wonderful!! From our first conversation to her flawless and hard work on our wedding day, Vail put us at ease and made us confident that the pictures would turn out amazing. And they did! She is a true pleasure to work with, incredibly detail oriented, and responds to emails very quickly. She gets to know you and listens to how you would like your photos to look overall. She is kind and professional as well. Vail was much more than just a photographer on the wedding day. She arrived early to set up, kept everyone on schedule through out the day and evening, and even brought out her sewing kit to fix my belt when I was getting ready! I felt that Vail went above and beyond to capture the best wedding photos. She spent a few hours the week before the wedding scouting out the scene and places to capture photos. She knew our immediate family and wedding party by names in order to help people feel comfortable and keep formal pictures efficient. Vail also was genuinely happy for my husband and I and was excited to be a part of our day. This meant the most to me, as you spend a good portion of your wedding day with your photographer. I would highly recommend Vail to any future brides!!!!
Amazing PhotographerReviewed on 9/24/2014
I absolutely love Vail. She is incredibly professional and personable. Our photos were phenomenal.
The BEST Photography Experience for the Perfect Wedding!!Reviewed on 9/26/2013 Caitlyn S
There are a lot of great photographers in Massachusetts, but Vail Fucci is so much more than a great photographer. We knew as soon as we met Vail she was the one we wanted for our wedding. We had amazing vendors, but Vail ended up being the very BEST decision we made. Vail does one wedding per weekend, visits the venue beforehand to check out lighting & the best spots for photos, and truly wants the bride & groom to have an amazing, stress-free wedding day. Vail stayed in touch with me over my nine months of planning, and answered every question. Our engagement photos were included in the package, and I chose to do them on the coldest day in February on the beach. (my mistake) Vail made the best of it, staying upbeat & bubbly, getting great shots and warming us up in her car between takes. But our wedding day was when Vail really became the ultimate wedding photographer. She was 7.5 months pregnant at our wedding and every bit the positive & professional photographer. She brought an extra shooter so we ended up with 3 amazing photographers! Vail knew the best way to get me into my dress, smoothed away potential back fat, got my husband to smile & laugh when he was nervous, called everyone in the wedding party & family member by name (which led to very fast & efficient photos!) had double sided tape to stick feathers back to my dress, got a bandaid when my husband cut his finger before the first dance, and danced with her pregnant belly to get my flower girl to smile in the pictures! Our friends kept asking where we found such a fantastic photographer, & my married friends kept saying, "my photographer never did that!" Our "sneak peak" photos are incredible, as I'm sure the rest will be. We are so thankful that we found Vail, I hope every couple is so lucky. We highly recommend Vail & Fucci's Photos, you will not be disappointed, and she will exceed your expectations! Thank you Vail, Shawn & Dan for such a fantastic day!
Vail is amazing!!!Reviewed on 8/22/2013 Casey M

Professional-fair prices with no sneaky business, answers emails quickly, has a questionnaire to understand what shots you want and who is who in regards to your family and bridal party, this makes your experience very personal Customer service-will do whatever it takes to make your big day special and calm so you can enjoy and your natural happiness will shine through in the photos :-) Vail makes everything about her clients!!! LOVE HER AND HER WORK!!!
Fucci PhotosReviewed on 5/06/2013 Brittany S
Brides-to-be: Vail was, is, amazing. The qualities she possess and her actions that earned her this score include but are not limited to: -Her versatility and merit as a photographer—pursued from weddings to fashion events -Her photographs are transcending and mesmerizing—I am magically photogenic in my wedding prints -She is organized, punctual, cognizant…passionate She visited my venues, maintained contact with myself and our vendors, and she brought an arsenal of qualified/knowledgeable assistants. She was a friend, a professional, an emergency kit…double-side taping my dress and covering eyelash glue with mascara (with her own resources). A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Great vendor to choose for brides looking to have one less stressor to be concerned with.
Incredible photographer!Reviewed on 4/05/2013 Erica K
My husband and I absolutely adore Vail. She is not only an incredible photographer, she is also a wonderful person. Without a doubt, Vail was the highlight of our wedding - not only for myself and my husband, but also for all of our family and friends! Vail is such a wonderful, enthusiastic, fun, and all-around fabulous person - and it goes without saying (especially given all of her recent awards and accolades) that she is also an outstandingly talented photographer. I look at our wedding photos all of the time, and I never get tired of re-looking at them, because they are all so detailed and nuanced and incredible. We are so grateful to Vail for capturing our wedding with such grace and style, while still allowing our quirky personalities to shine through. I think that it is also important to emphasize how professional Vail is in everything that she does. She was always extremely prepared for every meeting and photo shoot, and she made even the most chaotic environments feel easy and effortless. For example, she toured our photo sites ahead of time (both for our engagement shoot and for the wedding), so that the actual shoot ran smoothly and was totally fun and easy. At the wedding itself, Vail functioned not just as a photographer - she also was a last-minute makeup artist, a babysitter/entertainer for rambunctious kids, and a diplomat sorting out all sorts of last minute problems! She handled stressful situations with grace and kindness, and all of our guests just loved her. She also knew how to get our guests excited - whether she was climbing on ladders or lying flat on the dance floor, she was always in the thick of the action to get the best shot! All in all - Vail was just so amazingly fun and exciting to work with, and everyone (ranging from my 3 year old nephew to my 97 year old grandfather) adored her. It was truly a joy to work with Vail, and I hope that we remain friends with her long after the wedding is over! You would be CRAZY not to choose Vail as your photographer, because she is unbelievably talented and also terrific as a person!
AMAZING.Reviewed on 12/11/2012 Nicole B
Vail was AMAZING to work with for our engagement shoot and our wedding on 11/11/12 at The Villa. Not only is she a great photographer, she's an amazing person, and she knows exactly how the bride should feel on her wedding day and will do anything in her power to keep her happy. My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Vail at our friend's wedding in October of 2011 and we knew we had to work with her. She exceeded our expectations and more. She got on the dance floor with all of our guests while the 2nd shooter kept taking pictures! She kept the party going!! All of our guests even said she was awesome! We loved working with Vail and will recommend her to anyone and everyone we know who is getting married!! :) (P.S. Our pictures are beautiful!!!!)
We love Vail too!Reviewed on 10/31/2012 Yvonne A
Vail was the perfect photographer for our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and at ease the whole day. She is extremely organized and detailed oriented not to mention highly artist. Our pictures were beautiful and very unique. With Vail, it feels like she is part of your family rather than a vendor. Love her and will be looking for more events for her to shoot just to see her work again!
Amazing photography, great valueReviewed on 10/31/2012 Brenna P
We got married on June 2, 2012 in the pouring rain. Vail was very thorough in the planning process with us, making sure she knew not only what types of shots we wanted but also who was to be in them, their names, and also how they were all related. By the time the wedding came around, she knew our family tree! We were married at Glen Magna Farms in Danvers and had planned on making use of the grounds for the formal pictures. Though the rain changed those plans, there never was any sense of chaos as we had to improvise for Plan B. Vail immediately knew what would look good and who needed to be where. Vail took it all in stride and it didn’t seem to phase her at all. She was great! Vail showed up early and stayed late and didn’t charge us for the extra time. In fact, hours after she was scheduled to be done with us, she was still there rocking out on the dance floor while snapping off pics of guests having a good time. We loved it! We didn’t want a traditional, formal reception so opted for a more casual cocktail-style reception with an emphasis on people having a good time and Vail fit the atmosphere perfectly. We had a photo wall set up for our guests to use, with a pocket point-and-shoot camera set up on a tripod for people to use on their own. Vail ended up helping out on that quite a bit, using her own equipment, and the results far exceeded our expectations. At the end of the night, Vail offered to come back to Glen Magna with us on a nice day in the future to reshoot our portraits in the gardens free of charge. She said she had such a great time and felt so bad because of the unfortunate weather that she’d be happy to do that for us. We took her up on that offer and it was another great experience with her. Bottom line is that if we had to do it again we’d pick Fucci’s Photos in a heartbeat. Vail was very professional and organized both in the planning and on the wedding day itself, and we were very happy with the finished product. We highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!
Hail to Vail!Reviewed on 10/30/2012 Mariann A
Let's face it - planning your wedding is fun, but it is also beyond stressful. Finding good vendors to work with is KEY. That's why I would highly recommend Vail Fucci as your photographer. She makes the entire process as stress free as possible, and always went above and beyond. For example, it rained on my wedding day, so my beautiful curls fell flat before the reception. Luckily, Vail carried a curling iron with her (not to mention, some other survival kit items), and she actually curled my hair! She was awesome! She went out of her way to get the best shot, and I mean that since she nearly got soaked taking pictures of my husband and me. We were so impressed with the quality and quantity of pictures! I wanted a ton of candid photos to really capture the spirit of the event, and she managed to successfully do just that. I couldn't be more pleased. Vail is a treat to work with, and I would work with her over and over again. She's very organized, professional, and when it comes down to it, fun to work with. Thanks for everything Vail!
Vail is greatReviewed on 10/30/2012 Rosie P
Vail did great! We had a big indian wedding and she was great with everyone! I had a huge wedding party and people calling her in every direction and she did great! She even had a curling iron with her that she used to fix my hair before I walked down the aisle to make the "picture perfect" she said! SHE WAS AWESOME!!
Great Pictures and Beyond Accomodating!!!!Reviewed on 10/18/2012 Marlo I
Vail and her staff were great the day of my wedding!!!!!!!! She did everything from making the wedding flow nicely to pinning my veil!! My pictures came out great and she had tons of tips to make them even better!!!! My guests absolutely loved her!!!! She danced with us and got great pictures from so many different angles and perspectives!!!! I can't say enough about how great she was!!!! She made my day even more fabulous!!!
Fucci's PhotosReviewed on 9/19/2012 Kelley B
Vail of Fucci's Photos is such a special photographer. It has been said throughout these reviews, but she really is kind, dedicated and FUN. Here are three examples to give you an idea of how special she is. #1) On the day of my wedding, I stepped through part of the lace overlay of my dress when walking from our photo site to the reception. I was so upset, the party hadn't even started yet! Vail takes out a full sewing kit from her bag and stitched the dress up before we joined the party! #2) Prior to our big day, she was so prepared. She made cards of our entire bridal party and family with photos and knew them all by name. This made things efficient for formal photographs and made everyone feel special. She also visited the ceremony and reception sites on her own to meet the staff, figure out lighting and take some shots. #3) She delivered our wedding photographs to our house with brownies because she wanted to see our excitement as we looked through them and have a chance to say "thanks" and "goodbye" I wish nothing but the best for Vail and Fucci's Photos and know that she is going big places. Hire her if you can!
WE LOVE VAIL!!!!Reviewed on 9/04/2012 Ali W
Vail goes absolutely above and beyond- she made our day so special and made us feel completely comfortable and at ease. Everyone at the wedding loved her- and every one in the wedding party raved about how awesome she was. She made me feel completely at ease, and anything I had forgotten to do, she was on top of. When everyone disappeared when it came time to put together my bustle, Vail was the only one who could figure it out! She felt like not only my photographer, but also my friend. You would be crazy to NOT hire her!! By far the best vendor at my wedding.
Best Photography You Can Find!Reviewed on 3/01/2012 angela M
Fucci's Photos was a great company to work with. My husband and I absolutely loved every minute of the experience. They provided excellent service and made sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted. The quality of work was amazing and we could not have asked for a better photographer! Our wedding could not have been captured more perfectly. We give them a five star rating across the board!
Traveled from Georgia to Boston, just to have VailReviewed on 9/24/2011 Jessica M
I believe she is the best photographer you can find! My husband found Vail's website while stationed in Korea. We were very excited to find someone that fit our price range and our style. She was very accommodating, we scheduled our first meeting near my college campus between my classes. It was awesome to work with someone so kind. She did an engagement shoot for us, in between all the chaos of the month my husband was home before we headed back overseas. She even had our pictures edited and copied for us to have before we left 2 weeks after the wedding. It was absolutely amazing. On the big day she was so helpful and respectful! She was prepared and even more prompt than I, the bride was. She helped in so many ways to relax both my husband and I talking us through everything. At our engagement shoot, she even gave us a quick dancing lesson. I hope Vail and I will remain friends for a long time. She has done so much for us. She even helped me with a 1st anniversary boudoir surprise for my husband. I made a trip from GA to Boston to see her. I wouldn't have anyone else. Thank you Vail for everything!
WeddingReviewed on 8/02/2011 Valentina M
Our wedding day was a great success, thanks to Fucci photo's, Vail and Mia. They did a fabulous job with our photos!! They have such enthusiasm that you can't help but give your biggest smile in all pictures.Everything went greater than we imagined. Now we could relax and enjoy our wedding pictures. We are so happy to say that our wedding was the most fun wedding we've ever attended! I think many of our guests felt the same way. Vail is energetic, efficient, flexible, responsive, and a delightful person. We truly appreciated Vail's promptness, professionalism, and hardwork. We love our pictures and would absolutely recommend Fucci's Photos.
The Greatest Photography with Prices that Won’t BrReviewed on 6/18/2011 Stephanie P
I booked Vail of Fucci Photos of Boston last summer 2010 before our June 4th 2011 wedding. At the time she was still located in the DC area. She relocated to Boston and still went ahead and took the time to fly back to DC to cover our wedding. Vail was prompt and also had an additional professional staff to capture photos from us getting ready, the ceremony and the reception. There were at least 3 to 4 other shooters that accommodated Vail to my wedding. You didn’t even notice them because they were all very respectful and discrete during both the ceremony and reception. Even the priest at my church asked where did I find Vail because most photographers are rude and will get in the way during the ceremony or use their flash when they aren’t supposed to. After the wedding ceremony I received my pictures almost 2 weeks later. Vail was able to capture over 900 photos of our special day and the pictures came out BEAUTIFUL! It’s not one picture that my husband and I dislike. I can’t even express how gorgeous the pictures came out; they were simply breath taking. Vail exhibited great professionalism, courtesy, patience and understanding. Her and her staff helped out anyway that they could. For a bride on a budget Fucci Photos of Boston was the best choice that I could have made! Would I hire Fucci Photos of Boston again? YES, defiantly!
Great pictures, great service, great price!Reviewed on 8/13/2010 Beth H
Fucci's Photos was the best vendor of the whole wedding. Vail is energetic, efficient, flexible, responsive, and a delightful person. Several guests commented on how great she is. Her focus on customer service stands out--although inclement weather prevented us from taking the family pictures outside, at the end of the reception after everyone had left she offered to take some pictures of just me and the groom outside (it had stopped raining by that time). These impromptu outside pictures (which were taken at no extra charge) ended up being the best ones. We love our pictures and would absolutely recommend Fucci's Photos.
Great DC area photographer!Reviewed on 7/26/2010 Your M

Awesome Pictures & ServiceReviewed on 7/20/2010 Marilys H
Fucci Photos truly helped in making our wedding day so much better. They knew the memories I wanted captured in pictures and were able to obtain them for me without a hitch. Their service and quality of work was superb. We highly recommend their services to anyone.
