The Wedding Industry
The owner of ADA is Tony Sande. Tony Sande comes from long line of photographers. His grandfather, Thomas Sande, - worked for associated press during the 30-40's. His specialty was sports, particularly baseball. He photographer Babe Ruth, Lou Grehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, etc... Tony has always had a passion for photography going as far back as high school. Tony was in the printing business many years prior to shooting weddings, it wasn't a large leap from printing to shooting. He worked his way up to journeyman photographer in the printing field. During this time he recognized his passion and started his company ADA studio.
The Wedding Memories
Over 30 plus years of shooting weddings I could write a book, and perhaps one day I will. But for now it is hard to say one thing that's stands out. - What always gets me is when a father walks his daughter down the isle or an emotional first dance with a Mom or Dad. It always touches my heart. One memory that I have is of a groom who was paralyzed from the waist down, Who wanted to be standing at the end of the isle waiting for his bride, as is the norm. With the help of his two brothers, he was standing at the end of the isle waiting for his bride! There was not a dry eye in the church that afternoon and the bride approached him with the biggest smile I have ever seen. I will never forget that.
Weddings is our specialty. But ADA shoot all kinds of events, infants, dance schools, and sports.

How long have you been doing this? 30+ years Can we give you a shot list? Yes Can I get a discount? Yes - we give first responder discounts and our blue family always discounted.
I love nature, the outdoors, and the mountains (so much that I have a home there)! I also love to get together with my family, traveling, and of course a good golf game.
We had Lee and an assistant (which happened to be his son) they were both fantastic! He got every shot we wanted and we even had time for cocktail hour. We haven’t gotten any pictures back yet but Lee would turn his camera to show us and OMG they looked incredible!
We had ADA Studio for photo/video on our wedding day and for our engagement photos. Hugo and Joe were our two main photographers with Mike and Stefano doing our video. I’m not used to getting so many pictures taken of myself so I was kind of worried about this aspect of the day, but the whole team was so lovely and easy to work with! Hugo and Mike were with me all day and guided me through everything patiently and consistently checked in to see how I was feeling and make sure that I was happy with how things were going. It ended up raining on and off throughout the day and they were able to adjust their original plan to make sure they got enough photos and things ran smoothly despite the rain. They absolutely killed it in terms of deliverables too; we’re absolutely in love with our photos and the team really managed to capture everything we wanted.
|What can I say about this place besides SPECTACULAR!! ADA photography to me, is one of the most professional and understanding studios I’ve been to. |
My wife and I would like to give a HUGE shout out to Tony(main photographer), Stephano(videographer) and Mike(photographer assistant) for taking care of our wedding and making sure our pictures went through smoothly despite the weather being a little hot but they kept it moving along and made sure we were taken care of as to enjoy the rest of the time. Overall a HUGE thank you to the entire team over at ADA photography. You guys were amazing in every way and we are in love with the photos so far and can't wait to see the video!!
This company has exceeded any expectations I had! I booked with ADA for my wedding and the crew that was with me on my big day was beyond professional! Everyone was helpful, sweet and had such amazing attention to detail! They clearly know what they are doing when it comes to capturing the best possible pictures and video of your big day! Any request that I had, they accommodated and made it possible! Everyone went well above and beyond!! I 100% recommend this company to anyone who’s looking for an amazing photographer!
These people made our day!! We have the pleasure of working with Lee (Photo) and Stefano (Video) for our wedding. They understood our funny/carefree style and made us feel completely at ease on a day that could've been pretty stressful. Lee was all about the angles, making us laugh with creative shots that turned out to be our FAVORITE of the album. Stefano did an amazing job fulfilling our wishes by interviewing all of the major people in our lives and including them as little surprises in the video. Beyond happy we went with ADA and couldn't have asked for a better experience. 5 STARS!!
If you’re looking for a photographer who does really candid and in the moment shots, ask for Lee at ADA Studio! He did an absolutely amazing job - I told him I wanted a lot of really raw photos of my guests having fun and he did exactly that. Highly recommend!
ADA studios was AMAZING AMAZING - anyone using them, you are in for a treat! My team was the owner Tony, Stefano, Hugo, and Betty! They made the photos go so smoothly - even with a last minute change from Old Westbury Gardens to Planting Fields Arboretum (because of the weather). They even sent us preview shots THE DAY AFTER the wedding for us to post. They made us feel like family, anyone looking for a good photo video team use them!
To the ADA staff, Thank you so much for the amazing “PICTURE PERFECT” experience!!! Our photographer, Joe was amazing. Took some brilliant shots to memorialize out perfect day!!! We just recently picked up our videography from our wedding! It was beautifully filmed! Our videographer, Rick, was amazing. Thanks Rick for editing “the whole bouquet toss caught in the chandelier" mishap heheee. It was all amazingly captured! Thank you ADA staff for being a part of our special day!!! Xoxo Karine & Erwin
