{Wedding: Erika + Chris} Neshanic Valley Golf Course – Central New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I love shooting at the Neshanic Valley Golf Course.  The venue is beautiful and so romantic and lends itself to such fun images.  But, what I love even more is working with awesome couples.  Erika and Chris were such a pleasure to work with, as were their awesome family members. Chris’s face when he was waiting to see Erika for his first look is truly priceless.  The anticipation of seeing the woman he will spend the rest of his life with was amazing to watch and capture.  I’m so happy for this couple, as you can tell they truly make each other complete.  Congrats again Erika and Chris and thanks for having me capture your beautiful day!

{Wedding: Jamie + Anthony: The Primavera Regency Stirling NJ New Jersey Wedding Photographer

We had an amazing time capture Jamie and Anthony’s beautiful wedding.  EVERY detail was beautifully planned and truly came together wonderfully.   I love being a part of their day.  I feel like their love for one another really shows in the images, as well as the joy from all of their friends and family which of course made the day even more fun to shoot! We were faced with a major storm which was about to roll in right before the reception, and thankfully, we managed to get in some beautiful shots right on the grounds and the woods of the Primavera.  Jamie and Anthony totally trusted me as I lead them through the side lot of the Primavera.  I love when couples are so incredibly open to my vision.  I always think about light, texture and emotion in all of my images and it’s always fantastic when my client’s say, We’ll try anything!  Truly Jamie and Anthony were amazing to work with and I feel like we’ve become friends at this point.  Their family was so incredibly warm as well, I’m pretty sure I got about 39 hugs during the wedding. 🙂 Ah, such joy!   I can’t wait to follow up with this beautiful family when they one day welcome little ones.. but in the interim.. Congratulations again Jamie + Anthony! Much love now and always!

{engagement: Caitlin + Jamie} New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I simply adore this beautiful couple. I met Caitlin about 4 years ago when I was recovering from an injury in Kessler.  She happened to be one of my therapists.  From the moment I met her, I knew she was a different kind of person; immensely kind and truly caring about others.   At the time, I was going through something pretty serious, where I was having trouble with fine motor skills and speech and not once did she look down upon my condition, rather she continually boosted me up and helped me recovery to who I am today.  I will be forever thankful to her and I remember thinking at the time, that she was someone truly special.  Years pass and thankfully we stayed in touch.  2013 comes around and I had the pleasure of capturing her sister’s wedding, who like Catilin is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever met.  Caitlin introduced me to her boyfriend, Jamie at the wedding and you could just tell they were PERFECT together.  I remember looking at them during the night, thinking wow, that’s beautiful right there.. as they danced the night away.  Jamie seemed already part of their family and I thought to myself,  “he is so in love with her.”  I took these picture of them at the wedding and they really speaks to the genuine love they feel for one another.  The natural happiness that exudes from each of them when they are together is absolutely amazing. So naturally when Caitlin and Jamie announced their engagement, I was hoping they would ask me to capture their wedding and I’m so happy they did.  I actually screamed. 🙂 I love you both and I’m so looking forward to your October 2014 wedding!

{Wedding: Germary + Angel} The Fiesta Wood Ridge NJ – New Jersey Wedding Photograpger

 

 

I love these two. Germary contacted me about a year and a half ago about capturing her wedding to Angel.  We never met in person, but we had many long conversations about this couples big day.  Both Germary and Angel are from NYC, but recently moved to California where Angel is stationed in the Air Force.  (Note his awesome dress blues!) Hence, they planned their entire wedding from the West coast. Their planning really paid off, it was an AMAZING day!  I had one of the best times I’ve ever had shooting Germary and Angel’s wedding.  The couple, their family and their friends were some if the kindest people I’ve ever met. And just being in their presence, you can see why so many people came to their wedding to support them.  Just wonderful. And the amount of fun I had shooting this wedding was out of control.  I have way too many images I would like to share, but it’s a teaser.. otherwise I’d add their entire gallery. 🙂 Congrats again Germary and Angel! ❤ Janine
