Christina + Doug’s W. Orange Wedding Pt. 2

Christina & Doug knew each other back in middle school. Years went by and they reconnected –both now with children of their own.

Saturday they officially became a family –the 5 were married at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange!

It was a wonderful reception filled with beautiful kids and all the people who love them. 

Sounds about perfect, right?

Nikkee - Child Photo Session in Wayne NJ

I shot Nikkee’s parent’s wedding 8 years ago. I was so happy to take photos of their beautiful girl Nikkee.

We shot at Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne early on a Saturday. After about an hour Nikkee had had enough and wanted breakfast. NP –we already had plenty of great photos!

9 Day Old Vincent’s Newborn Photoshoot!

I have known Anthony and Diana for a few years now. When Anthony told me they were expecting and they wanted ME to shoot newborn photos I was psyched…but had 6 months to wait.

Anthony sent me an e-mail when Vincent Leonard was born…and I patiently waited. Anthony & Diana had a rough 1st week …but late that week we agreed that I’d come to their home to take photos 9 days after Vincent was born.

Vincent was non too excited to have his photo taken. 3 hours after I arrived I still didn’t feel like I had really captured him. He did poop and pee on me so I had that going for me.

Late in the shoot he chilled and we made some magic. Thanks guys! looking forward to future family portraits!!

A Beautiful Cape May Wedding

Though from northern NJ Justine + Anthony decided to get married in Cape May. A wise decision! They booked me in a cozy cafe in northern NJ in January…there was snow on the ground.

I was so excited to shoot a wedding on the beach in Cape May that I made a custom one photographer (me) package to ensure we could make it all work. 

 The day started with a ~3 hour drive from my home in northern NJ…1st photo was of the Cape May Exit 0 sign on the Parkway (not in this collection).

I began me shooting in earnest at a house Anthony’s parent’s rented in Cape May (their first time there). The groomsmen and Anthony’s family were getting ready there. Luckily they had Cynthia (of the wild hair) to help them!  

Hotel Alcott was the next stop –there the ladies were getting ready. How much do you LOVE the bridesmaid’s dresses?! Justine’s amazing dress was the perfect weight and style for a warm wedding on the beach. It was a little hot but all discomfort was forgotten as these sweet two began exchanging vows!

A horse and carriage ride and a quick shoot on the beach saw us back at the Hotel Alcott where Alan and his staff even made sure I had a great meal.

The party was a blast and it was like I was part of the family –thanks for all the biscotti, BTW. It was a long drive home!

Wharton Wedding - Juanita & David Pt II

The rest of Juanita and David’s extra big and extra juicy wedding preview is here!

David and Juanita got married in Wharton…then we went to 2
different parks before the reception at Skylands in Randolph. I LOVE
Hedden Park for photos! Juanita was so excited to keep shooting –her
enthusiasm for photography was a match for my own!!

Great families and friends, lots of love and excitement.

The
Hedden Park locations I scouted with groom David a week or so before
the wedding so we knew exactly where to go on wedding day.

Randolph Wedding - Juanita & David Pt I

This awesome couple got married in Wharton…then we went to 2 different parks before the reception at Skylands in Randolph. I LOVE Hedden Park for photos! Juanita was excited to keep shooting –her enthusiasm for photography was a match for my own!!

The minister at St. Bernard’s would not let me move around…I had to remain in my pew for the entire ceremony. This was painful and a challenge. 

The Hedden Park locations I scouted with groom David a week or so before the wedding so we knew exactly where to go on wedding day.

This is the 1st half of the gallery.

Thanks to all the incredible vendors!!

Horseshoe Crabs Mating, Delaware Bay

Spent Friday evening through late AM Sat in Heislerville, NJ on Delaware Bay. Right by the East Point Light House there. Our annual trip to witness the annual ritual of horseshoe crabs coming into the surf to mate and lay eggs as they have been for…get this…450 million years. 

On Friday we were there again before sunrise. Reed, my 12 year old son got up at 4:45 AM to come with me. I would have gotten better photos w/o him there but dammit I wouldn’t have it any other way. It was so sweet that he wanted to join me there!


Late morning we headed to Cape May for lunch and then to Wildwood for a few hours on the Boardwalk. A perfect couple of days. Next year we’ll have to plan for more than one night!

Best,
