Enjoy Jamie and Jason's wedding in Belmar, NJ at the Breakers on the Ocean. These two had the most absolutely perfect beach wedding weather.
Last week , I drove down to Ocean City, New Jersey for Lisa and Mike's wedding. The weather was beautiful - lots of sun, and very warm! my good friend Mark Gardner rode with me to help out. Mark hung out with the guys, and I got to meet up with the girls. Everyone looked amazing and I could tell it was going to be a fun day. Lisa and Mike rented a Jitney, instead of the traditional limo. After a traditional mass service and some family pictures, we headed to the beach for the bridal party session. The whole group was a treat to work with. Everyone helped out and were very willing to experiment with different shots. Now, Mike is a lifeguard and firefighter for Ventnor City. That meant that we basically had free range of the firehouse... and trucks :) After a stop there, the reception was next. WHAT A PARTY. can't say much more that that. Here are a few pics from the day. (careful, some of them are pretty steamy)
Meeting up with my good friend and fellow Philly wedding photographer (Philly8) member, Mark Gardner, we traveled south down to Cape May, NJ for Beth and Steve's wedding. This group, from the very beginning, was all about having a good time. Everyone was in such a good and relaxed mood, it made our job so much easier - and even more fun! I was really excited to see that Beth choose an non-white dress. It was close to a blue-ish color wedding dress - very cool! and the black shoes just added to it!
Staying pretty busy, I helped New Jersey photographer, Steve Akins, photograph Stefanie and Tony's wedding. Just a few from the day. It may have rained before the ceremony, but the quaint little church at Allaire State Park kept us dry :)
This past weekend, I was lucky to be able to cover Michaela and Michael's wedding in LBI (Long Beach Island). They have a great house rented for the entire event. The night before the wedding, the had a formal cocktail dinner for the guests that arrived into town early. The day of the wedding, started out slightly cloudy, but the sun eventually broke through. The entire group of guests were extremely kind and LOTS of fun. Here is a preview of my weekend of work fun.
The happy couple on the 'eve' of their wedding!
