Mario Michele Studio Update

3/22/2011 Update:

Mario Michele Studio – Pretty much non-existent in Hoboken

Not sure if anyone is still even looking for vacation or wedding photos from Mario Michele – but I think you’re all “SOL.”

Mario Michele Essentially Vacant

4/28/2010 Update:

Customers have a slight chance at recovering photos

A Hoboken411 reader tipped me off about the company Mario Michele used for print processing: Profilmet.com in Cheswick, Pennsylvania. I spoke with the Division Manager there – and he offered the following:

“We do have some work here that is unpaid for by them. The work that we have is a small percentage of what you are referring to. The orders are older that 3 months, so we do not have the digital images housed any more, just the physical photographic prints. We did not make the albums for them, just the prints that they would send out to get mounted elsewhere. I am willing to make these prints available to the brides at a minimal cost, so they will have something.

Just to re-iterate, we do not have a lot, and some of what we do have is actually proofs for weddings in 2008 that I believe the brides already got the files. Some of what we have is not named in any way, so we don’t know how to figure out what bride it is.”

If you’re a customer who hasn’t received your photos yet – and want to give it a shot, contact Greg at (724)275-1700 x2344.

Good luck!

8/4/2008 Update:

As can be expected with anything related to the Monroe Center + Hoboken, the eventual addition of Mario Michèle Studio is dragging along. They were supposed to be open three months ago. I sent an email to the owners, and have yet to receive a response as to what the holdup is.

4/24/2008:

Coming soon to the Monroe Center in Hoboken: Mario Michèle Studio.

Currently located in Ridgewood, NJ, Mario Michèle is moving to Hoboken because of their expanding Manhattan and Hudson County client base. They’ll maintain their satellite office in north NJ. They expect to be open in town sometime in May 2008.

For an of you out there that needs this input!!!!

As stated on the MMSFRAUD message board on Googlegroups:

“Deputy at Judge Stern’s office and he states that he has only received 20 motions to dismiss. PLEASE PLEASE fill out the template or send your case. He says the judge is aware of the situation and is reading each individual motion. We are making good NOISE! They also will be rescheduling the June 7th date to July 19th 10am because they “NOW have evidence that they have to sort out and try to figure out how to handle the hearing on the 7/19″ thanks and please again fill out the petition it is not too late”

As you can see, the hearing has been pushed back again because people are opposing the bankruptcy. But it’s gonna take more of us to be heard. Please check out the Googlegroups at

for further details. It’s free and easy to sign up.

Hi! I am getting married in May of next year and I see that you are too. I also went to see Mario Michele Studio and just booked them a few days ago. We were recommended by a friend of mine who used them 2 years ago. I love their work and feel very comfortable with them. I did read the reviews that were written about them, and before I signed the contract I asked them what that was about. Lucy explained to me that because of their move into the new studio, which they aren’t in yet, they have been delayed with their production of albums. This hellped me alot because I was concerned about it. But my friend also mentioned that you only read the bad things that are written about a studio bcz that’s when people take the time out to write anything. No one ever writes anything good bcz at that point they are happy and need to vent about anything…lol. Anyway, I wish you luck with finding a photographer! Congratulations!

ATTENTION!! SOME GOOD NEWS!!! The case is still open. There will be another session at the end of June. We are collecting emails in an effort to file a petition with the judge. For more details, please provide your email address to mariomichellespetition@gmail.com.

The petition is to prove that they were fradualently using our money. If you wrote a personal check to either Lucy or Sonia, please email immediately. If you have signed documentation that they were to provide you a service (i.e. album, video) by a specific date, please email .Lets all pool together as team….and let justice prevail.

over 182 couples have been stolen from!! I have seen alot of post on the internet and spoken to alot of couples who have had this problem. Over the past 2 years only 2 albums have been completed yet they have taken alot of money form us.Fraud is very hard to prove. Misappropriation of funds is not though. If these people used the money for an extravagant life style then U can go afer their personal stuff, even jail time. All 3drive expensive cars(Mercedes Benz). They live in expensive homes. I know from people who have worked in the studio they spent a to of money on Sonia’s wedding. They have people over constantly. I have driven by 3 times and have seen parties. If you want to get these people this is the angle you have to take. This Sat. they have to be at their studio to return neg. & pics to clients. this schould be interesting.

Hi everyone,
I got married July of 2008 and have yet to receive my album or dvd. They did stop by my house to drop off the parent albums in January which surprised me. I just received a letter in the mail claiming that Mario and Michele’s filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy on March 15. I have contacted a lawyer who has already sent them a letter which I doubt will do anything. I had used Mario and Michele’s before and their service was great, obviously, it no longer is.
