Wedding: Cortney + Jason – Basking Ridge Country Club New Jersey

Have you ever met a couple that when they walk in the room, all heads turn to look that them?  If you have, it was probably Cortney and Jason.  They both have personalities that will light up a room within minutes.  Jason’s smile is like none other,  constantly grinning from ear to ear and Cortney’s electric eyes could like take your breath away. Their entire day was filled with incredible emotion.  Jason was over taken with emotion when he knew Cortney was coming down the aisle. See awesome tears below. It’s probably my favorite processional ever. After the ceremony, we took some portraits during golden hour on the grounds of the country club. And the night ended with some pretty sick dancing in the ballroom at the Basking Ridge Country Club.  Thank you again J+C for allowing me to document your amazing day!

Wedding: Elizabeth + Erich – The Primavera Regency, Stirling NJ Wedding Photographer

It feels so good to go back to your roots sometimes and to visit the streets you grew up on as a child. When Elizabeth asked me to shoot her wedding, I immediately felt completely honored.  You see, I grew up with Elizabeth’s older brother and he was one of the first friends I made in grade school in Somerville, NJ.  My memory of Elizabeth was of a beautiful brown eyed little girl, kind and sweet to all.  So when she asked me to capture her wedding to Erich, I almost cried. To see her marry her love on her wedding day was one I won’t forget.  Erich is her perfect match..witty and fun and full of life. The joining  of these families was one filled with incredible emotion and laughter.  I’m so overjoyed to have been a part of this day and Elizabeth and Erich I wish you a life time of happiness and love!

Cortney + Jason: Engagement Session – Basking Ridge Country Club Wedding – New Jersey Wedding Photographer

We were blessed with the most beautiful spring day for  Jason and Cortney’s engagement session.  The couple decided to visit Duke Farm in Hillsborough NJ for their engagement session and I’m so glad they did!  We shot underneath the beautiful lush magnolia trees, some of which are over 100 years old.   We visited the greenhouse filled with orchids and  of course the giant stone walkways.  Shooting their wedding next week at the Basking Ridge County Club will surely be a treat.  As you can see from these images their connection is magical and I know their wedding day is going be spectacular!

{Megan + Mike} David’s Country Inn – Hackettstown New Jersey

Was so very honored to shoot this wedding.  I happen to know the beautiful bride since grammar school and was honored she selected me to cover her incredible wedding to Mike.  Not only because we go way back, but also because her brother shot my wedding many moons ago.  I just felt so right being a part of this amazing day. So many fun moments, coupled with tons of laughter.  Megan is the funny one in the family. You can just tell;  when she is in the room, there is never a dull moment.  Watching her with Mike, it’s like they compliment each other perfectly. I experienced so many private jokes between them and when we were shooting their bridal portraits, it was like we weren’t even there..effortlessly, he made her laugh and vice versa. It was quite the cold day too.. but you can’t tell because the joy on their faces truly warms the images. Thank you Megan and Mike for allowing me to share in your beautiful day.

Special Thanks to Lisa of Lisa Nicolosi Photography for shooting this day with me!JCP_9401 copy
