CAROLINE & JUSTIN’S WATERSIDE WEDDING | NORTH BERGEN, NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I can’t even tell you how much I adore this couple.  At times, it felt like I was photographing friends and not clients.. Caroline and Justin just have this quality about them that makes those in their presence feel super-welcome and joyful (no different from their engagement session earlier this year).  This made for some fantastic photos, and it was so much fun capturing their New Jersey wedding, starting their big day in Hoboken, NJ at their apartment (That’s two weddings in a row that I’ve shot involving dogs, which I love!) then moving onto their ceremony at the gorgeous St. Peter and Paul Church, followed by reception at the ever-picturesque  Waterside Restaurant  in North Bergen.  This is the second time I’ve photographed a wedding at the Waterside, and it was even more fun than the first!    This wedding really had it all, from beautiful and fun-loving guests, a huge wedding party, to the most emotional father-daughter dance I’ve ever had the honor of documenting.  I truly love working for couples who have an appreciation for great photography, and I think it shows in the work.  Speaking of which, thanks so much to Haris for second-shooting with me!  And as always, the talented Lomotan Productions is just a pleasure to work with, and professional as ever.  Awesome day.  Awesome photos.  Enjoy!

Sometimes things happen that are beyond our control.  Due to a family emergency, one of my photographer cohorts could not shoot Kathleen and Scott’s wedding, so I had agreed to cover for her.   Truly, it was a gorgeous intimate wedding, and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple with which to work.  Kathleen and Scott are both incredible, down-to-earth people with epic taste in decor.  There were so many items around their apartment and little personal touches everywhere, one couldn’t help but be offered a glimpse into their lives (beakers as vases?  so very cool..).  Scott even put together the hors d’oeuvres which looked like a gourmet bistro had catered this NYC wedding.  Oh, and not to mention the backdrop of their absolutely stunning rooftop view of Manhattan from Roosevelt Island.  The last photo is my most favorite bokeh panorama ever!  Click on it to enlarge.  You’ll be glad you did.  Enjoy the photos!!

HARPER & DARRELL’S SALT CREEK GRILLE WEDDING | RUMSON, NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Once again, I had the pleasure of second-shooting with Jenelle Kappe for this lovely and intimate central NJ wedding.  Today is actually her birthday!  Happy birthday, Jen!!  =)  We started Harper and Darrell’s day at the utterly gorgeous Bungalow Hotel right on the Jersey Shore, making great use of their unique decor, and moved onto the ceremony at the Salt Creek Grille which was truly a wonderful place for a sunset wedding by the water, complete with their own pier!  Harper was stunning.  Darrell was dashing.  The kids were a joy to photograph.  The day literally could not have gone more perfect.  Enjoy the photos!!
