{Wedding: Tina + Matt Rock Island Lake Club Wedding, New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I’ve been blessed this year by being able to work with clients that I would call friends.  Matt and Tina are one of those couples for me.  From the moment we met, I knew it was going to be an incredible experience capturing their day.  Simply put, they make all in presence feel so comfortable and after spending 15 minutes with them, they will have you laughing and feeling like you have known them for 10 years.  So clearly, it would make sense that working with their friends and family on their wedding day felt like being around old friends.  Their day, was perfect. Absolutely perfect, not because of the beautiful weather, but because it is clear that they complete each other. Their vows brought the house down, I cried and laughed, we all did!  The tears and smiles were abundant from all.  Thank you Matt and Tina for letting me capture this beautiful story on your perfect day!

Ceremony+ Reception: Rock Island Lake Club

So when we did the walkthrough together at Rock Island Lake Club, I saw the beautiful island in the middle of the lake and asked Tina and Matt if they would be willing to row out to the island.  They were ALL IN.  AKA.. my dream couple!

{Wedding: Kayla +Justin Neshanic Valley Golf Course – New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I have so many things I can say about this beautiful couple.  Kayla, your grace and beauty simply lights a room; your smile is infectious and your laugh so very joyful.  It’s so very obvious to me why Justin fell in love with you so many years ago in High school.  Justin, it’s clear that Kayla is your soul mate; the way you look at her with your adoring eyes is something that was an incredible joy to capture.  When you embrace her, you can tell truly, it was always meant to be that you would become one someday.  I had the most incredible time capturing your beautiful day.  The day was perfect with beautiful weather and your friends and family were wonderful to work with. I wish you so much love and happiness now and always!

Kayla’s loving grandmother passed recently and her corsage was labeled grandmother.  She decided she would give it to her aunt, her grandmother’s daughter who she loves dearly. It was such an emotional moment.

Right as they were remembering those that could not be with them on this beautiful day, the light in the church changed and this beautiful stream of light appeared on the cross in the aisle. It was like those that are now in heaven were letting their presence be known.
