{Wedding: Amanda + Dan – White Meadow Lake Country Club Wedding – New Jersey Wedding Photographer}


White Meadow Lake Country Club

I was beyond honored to capture Dan and Amanda’s wedding.  When we met last year, I knew their wedding would be one which would stick in my mind for a long time.  They planned every details of their day with meticulous attention, I could tell you a million.. but here are a couple things I was blown away by.  Jackie, Dan’s mother created the bouquets by hand using traditional origami as well as all of the place cards. I die.  Amanda’s headpiece was given to her by her Aunt Lily and it was created at the turn of the century.  I died again. And not to mention, the club itself is personal to Amanda as she grew up on the lake and experienced many celebrations there.  When it came to working with Dan and Amanda, it was pretty evident that they were made for each other.  They complete each others sentences and when she smiles, so does he.. effortlessly. Their personal portraits I feel reflect that ease and comfort with one another and are absolutely natural to who they are.  Congratulations again Amanda and Dan.. THANK YOU for allowing me to a part of your amazing day.

Also, special thanks to Martin Reardon for second shooting with me at this event!

{engagement: Kelly and Bill} Hoboken New Jersey Engagement Photographer

What an amazing couple! I had a wonderful shoot with Kelly and Bill for their engagement portraits.  The couple choose to have their images taken in Hoboken, NJ; their now home town. Kelly is such a natural beauty and you can tell by Bill’s subtle loving smiles towards her, they are truly a wonderful pair.  Kelly’s beautiful engagement ring was designed by her fiance, yowza.. it’s amazing!!  I’m so excited to shoot Kelly and Bill’s wedding later this year at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge.

I could likely put up hundreds on my blog as this bride and groom truly thought of every little detail for their wedding! My favorite images however are of the B+G during their First Look; she is stunning and his eyes say it all, they are the perfect match.   Congratulations again Andy and Dom, best wishes to you both always.. and thank you again for inviting me to share in your special day.

{newborn: Baby I} New Jersey Newborn photographer

Meet the beautiful Baby I!  I was so happy to meet this precious little angel as I did her mother’s maternity session a couple months ago.  Baby I couldn’t have been more perfect and  I fell in love with her hair! It’s so silky and smooth that the headbands kept popping off.  Her parents are surely blessed and I’m so happy to have met this wonderful family! Can’t wait to plan her 6 month session!

{Wedding: Allison & Brandon} New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of capturing Allison and Brandon’s September wedding on Brigantine Beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  We hoped for a bright sunny day, but we were met with showers.  You truly wouldn’t know it however as the B & G were all smiles the entire day.  Some of the photos they are standing right in the rain, but you wouldn’t know it as their loving expressions to each other say it all!  Thanks Allison and Brandon for letting me photograph your day. Enjoy the teaser! 🙂 janine

{headshots: Aesthetica Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center} New Jersey Headshot photographer

I had the pleasure of working with Aesthetica Cosmetic & Laser Surgery Center, located in Bethlehem PA recently.  What a joy it was to work with this talented group of professionals! They were looking for headshots for their website as well as some product portraits.  Dermachromatic is actually a product that Dr. Vasily helped engineer, I’ve used it and it’s amazing! Here’s just a sample of some of the work I’ve done for them, much more will be highlighted on their website soon.

{Wedding: Sandi & Jordan} NJ/PA Wedding Photographer

Sandi and Jordan’s wedding was truly a beautiful occasion. The bride and her beautiful bridal party got ready at her mother and father’s home, where I had the oppurunity to capture their getting ready photos. Time passed so quickly and before we knew it, they were on their way to St. Peters Church in Pen Argyl for the ceremony.  I think the look on Jordan’s face as she walked down the aisle with her father says it all:   incredible love.  After their ceremony, we traveled to  Kirkridge Retreat – The Farmhouse in Bangor Pa for portraits and their fabulous reception. There truly was not a dry eye in the house during their first dance.  One of the most heartfelt “first dances” I’ve ever seen.  I too, was tearing!  After this beautiful moment, Tony and Eryn from Sounds of Music Entertainment:  http://www.facebook.com/somevents opened up the dance floor and the party didn’t stop ALL night!  Also, special thanks to Rachel Miranda for her assistance in shooting this special event!
