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!

Wedding: Valerie + Matthew – The Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset NJ – Kirkpatrick Chapel, Central New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Ceremony: Kirkpatrick Chapel – New Brunswick, NJ

Hair/makeup: La Sorella Bridal

Reception: The Palace at Somerset Park, Somerset, NJ

Valerie and Matthew it’s hard to put into words how I felt about shooting your day.  Why? Because sometimes, it’s hard to describe the mere magic that can be seen in images with words.  From the moment I arrived at for the getting ready images, it was clear that their wedding day was the true joining of two souls destined for one another.  Upon my arrival, Valerie was at the end of a ‘treasure hunt’ that Matthew lead her on, a series of cards and clues to lead her to his gift; the most beautiful pearl necklace.  And her gift to him? The most incredible inscribed pocket watch.  Truly timeless gifts, much like their love for one another.  In all of my years shooting, I don’t think I have ever seen a couple smile, ALL DAY.  I mean, it was amazing at how the small mention of each others name lead them to beam with joy.  Valerie’s procession down the aisle was incredible, and when her father handed over his daughter to his new son, I still get chills.  I watched tears in his eyes and he said something to his new son, which I couldn’t hear, but I know it important as they ensued with a hug at the end.  And this moment when Valerie and Matthew they finally saw each other? The love in the air was palpable. That feeling lasted all day and into the night as they partied the night away with their family and friends.  Valerie and Matthew, thank you for allowing me to capture your day. I can’t thank you enough, truly. I felt so moved capturing the incredible passion you have for one another and wish you many many many years of love and happiness!

Special thanks to Nick of Nick and Kelly Photography for 2nd shooting with me!

Wedding: Lauren + Joel – New Jersey Wedding Photographer – The Berkeley Plaza Berkeley Heights, NJ

Lauren + Joel’s beautiful wedding at the Berkeley Plaza.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day!  There was so much beautiful raw emotion during the day, it’s hard to document it all in a couple shots!  Not to mention, who knew Lauren has an AMAZING voice and grabbed the microphone for a Bon Jovi song!  Maybe the talent came from her dad, who killed it during his version of Shout!

{Engagement: Tina + Ryan} New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Had a wonderful time shooting Tina and Ryan’s engagement session!  We shot these images at the stable where Tina keeps her beautiful horse, Hustler.  He was a total ham for the camera and I truly loved working with all of their animals.  Tina and Ryan were naturals in front of the camera and pretty much just joked around the entire time. I’m fairly certain I laid down in some horse doo-doo, at one point, but hey, so worth it for the shot! I can’t wait to capture their wedding in 2015 at the beautiful David’s County Inn in Hackettstown. 🙂 _JCP8187-Edit-Edit copy
