Wedding: Kristin + Tom – The Madison Hotel Morristown New Jersey Wedding

w

Kristin and Tom had the most beautiful wedding day.  Having worked with this awesome couple over the last couple months, I knew they would leave no detail untouched.  Kristin designed every element of their day, including their logo, which was incorporated    into all of the beautiful details.  There was a botanical undertone to all of their details, which made sense for this couple as their first date was at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum,….in addition Tom proposed there too!  The Madison Hotel served as the most perfect location which lush greenery and epic ball room for this special couple!

Special Thanks for Hasan for 2nd shooting this day with me!

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!

{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!

{Wedding: Abby + Matt} Fiddlers Elbow Country Club Wedding – New Jersey Wedding Photographer

If I could describe Matt and Abby’s wedding in one word, it would be ‘timeless.’  Abby and Matt truly made sure every beautiful detail of their day was planned perfectly.  From the exquisite flowers, to Abby’s lace dress, to the subtle yet fantastic ‘Hare’ references in Matt’s cuff links and cake topper; no detail was left unfinished.  Their wedding was a beautiful gathering of family and friends from many places and some matt’s family traveled from England to be a part of their day.  Their wedding was also on one of the hottest days of the year, so we stayed outside for their formals for only about 20 minutes or so, but in end, their love shined through the soaring temperatures and we are left with imagery of tender expressions towards one another. 🙂  Thanks Abby and Matt for letting me capture your beautiful day!

{Wedding: Meredith + Mike} David’s Country Inn, Hackettstown, NJ – New Jersey Wedding Photographer

It was such an incredible pleasure shooting Meredith and Mike’s wedding, or as I like to refer to them, M+M. 🙂 I can remember when we first met well over a year before their wedding and the consultation we had in my office.  I loved listening to their playful banter back and forth and their vision for their day.  Meredith had lots of ideas for the day and Mike too, but he told me that he loved the bar area at David’s and we made sure we got some fun bar shots for them both. Being in the alcohol industry, Mike loved David’s beautiful vintage bar area; how could you not?! It’s amazing. Over the months before their wedding, Meredith and I chatted many times about the wedding day schedule and her ideas. She was truly, my most organized bride, which made her day flow so beautifuly.   She’s also so incredibly kind and warm and meeting and working with both of them and their families was such a pleasure!  We messaged back and forth so much in the weeks before her wedding, I now miss our daily conversations!   There were so many wonderful touches to their day, a custom cigar area, polaroid pictures, right down to the programs.. no detail was left out!  Even down to the band they selected, who are local to them and totally rocked the party!   Meredith and Mike, thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful day and your incredible love story. Many wishes now and as you embark on this new chapter together. ❤
