STEPHANIE & JOHN’S WATER’S EDGE WEDDING | OCEAN, NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I’ll just come out and say it.  I love second-shooting.  It gives me such creative freedom to move freely about, and shoot images that I wouldn’t normally be able to shoot due to the responsibility of having to capture the “primary” shots as the main photographer.  Such was the case as I was second-shooting for the talented Jenelle Kappe a few months ago at Merri-Maker’s Water’s Edge in Ocean, NJ.  It was such a great time working with her and this couple!  I got a bit of nostalgia while photographing John and his groomsmen’s getting ready portion of the day at the Doubletree Hotel by Hilton in Eatontown, NJ, as they reminded me so much of my fun-loving (and not always kosher) high school friends… haha.  This wedding party wasn’t afraid to just be comfortable in their own skin and have a great time, and that’s exactly what they did.  And of course, when I’m around, you can always count on it showing up in photos  =)  Enjoy!

SAGRARIO AND MIGUEL’S WEDDING | NYC, NY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Hola!  Remember the adorable boy I photographed who got baptized in December?  Well, this January I had the pleasure of photographing Evan’s parents’ wedding.  All weddings are unique, and each have their own benefits and challenges.. this variety is what makes what I do so immensely satisfying.  Sagrario and Miguel had a wonderfully intimate wedding, with the home ceremony officiated 95% in Spanish (Don’t be surprised if I become at least trilingual in a few years..).  We started out at the Hampton Inn in Yonkers, NY, where Sagrario prepared for her first day of married life, and ended the wedding at the Cloisters Museum in NYC.  Of course at that point, it was freezing cold and the museum was closed, but, being with Sagrario and Miguel being the most patient couple in the world, we were able to make use of what sparse time we had outdoors to create some nice light and dramatic photography.  Enjoy!
