Jen and Jim's Wedding at the Carriage House in Galloway, NJ was my first wedding of 2014, and I couldn't have been more excited! After a very busy 2013 and a few weeks off, I was ready to get back to work. Jen, Jim and their family and friends did not disappoint! While it was a brisk February day, the sun was shining and couldn't have been any more gorgeous. We even got a change for a great sunset portrait. Take a peak at their preview below.
Brianna and Brian lived in Colorado when they booked me. Because of the distance, and short timing that they would be back in this area before the wedding, we were able to schedule an engagement session. It wasn't any problem, though, because once I arrived at their shore house in Sea Side Heights, we all got along and had a great time. Brianna and Brian got ready in different houses - but they were only 3 doors down. Taking each group down to the beach separately (avoiding seeing each other), we left Sea Side and then headed over to The Waters Edge in Bayville, NJ. Not only were Brianna and Brian super excited to get married, their wedding had a special meaning for the owners of the Waters Edge too. This was first wedding here since Hurricane Sandy came through last year. The building looked great, and the staff handled everything so great! I'm definitely excited to shoot here again soon.
During the reception Brian lipsynced Baby Got Back, with everyone watching. He earned the standing ovation after his performance!
Becky and Brian were Married at the Sea Oaks Country Club in Egg Harbor, NJ. Starting another fun weekend - I was so excited to start off with such a relaxed day. I started with Becky and her bridesmaids while my second shooter, Ashley, was with Brian and the guys. Becky is a dog trainer, so when I got to their house, I was greeted but a few furry friends. They were awesome and one was even the ring bearer! Arriving to the country club, we set Brian up for their first look. There were tears from both of them :) From there we took advantage of the gorgeous sunlight that day and make a quick loop around the golf course.
With a grand entrance to the ceremony, Becky was escorted in on a horse and buggy ride. After the ceremony, brought on the reception and they got the party started!
It was a great day and everyone, including Ashley and I, had a great time!
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 met up with Adriana and Peter near their home in Hoboken, NJ to photograph their engagement session. They are getting married in Texas later this year, but wanted pictures in their home town. Living right near Pier "C", we took advantage of the amazing sky line of New York City, in the background, and had some awesome golden sunlight the whole time! From the time I walked in their front door, these two were so friendly, but Adriana seemed a bit nervous. A few minutes a final prep and some jokes to break the ice further, and the 3 of us were off. I would say, about 5.... MAYBE 10 minutes into the actually shooting part of the session, those nerves wore off and these two just had a great time with each other. LOTS of laughs, and I mean LOTS OF LAUGHS. As we walked around, we were able to use the Empire State Building and also the Freedom Tower (I was told Peter has a fascination for it) as back drops. Not to be out done by the buildings, their chiuaua, Diego, was brought down for the last few pictures. He was kinda tired, and I think he was ready for his dinner, but we got some fun shots with him too.
Adriana and Peter - It was a blast working with you two - Best wishes on your wedding in Texas - here's your engagement session preview!
