Cara + Nick’s Arboretum Wedding

I jumped at the chance to shoot Cara + Nick’s wedding at the Laurelwood Arboretum in Wayne, NJ. Beautiful outdoor setting on a summer day, followed by a back yard tent reception. Food made by your Mom with all the love she could muster –and that is a lot. Cara’s Dad Greg hired me and I am so grateful Google helped get this awesome family to me .

As Dad Greg spoke to the assembled guests he said, “…and I’d especially like to thank Tom, the newest member of our family.” I was dumb-founded and teary-eyed. Thanks Dad!

Love your clients and they’ll love you back.



Newborn Photography: 11 Day Old Evan John

So happy to be invited back to Barb and John’s home for newborn photography. I missed their wedding –they were married in the USVI –but I took some fab maternity photos for Barb (psst…go to the end of the gallery…) and I took photos of their 1st child, Lily Grace. Thanks for having me back –love you guys!

Katherine + Jonathan @ Casa del Sol

Great day with great people –I shot Katherine’s sister’s wedding about 18 mos ago. So good to be back with her family and to meet Jonathan’s family.

Costa del Sol in Union, NJ did a great job and I loved all the greenery around for photography!

All the best,

I came across this post detailing barn wedding venues in New Jersey. Some of these I had not heard of before –I have only shot weddings at 2 of the 17. Posting here in the hopes that you, my future clients, will change that in short order.

Danielle + Chris @ David’s Country Inn

It was great being back at David’s for Danielle and Chris’s wedding. On hand with me was the great @JedSmithPhotography on 2nd shooting and @MatthewDylanMedia as videographer.

Lots of fun at this wedding including a fake 1st look!

If I wanted dreamy expressions from Danielle + Chris all I had to do was have them look at each other. They are so sweet together!

The beautiful interior of David's Country Inn in Hackettstown NJ. Beautiful bride basking in beautiful lighting. Beautiful off the shoulder bridesmaid dress. Night time photo outside David's Country Inn.

This crowd was so much fun and lots of sweet, touching moments too. Danielle provided our 1st cake smash of the year –Chris was certainly surprised!

Thanks for having us!

Sarah is the last of the Murray siblings. I have shot ALL of their weddings, Sarah + Nick’s twice for good measure. Sarah + Nick decided to have an outdoor family wedding in her brother’s backyard and push the big party off until 2021!

It is pretty wonderful showing up to a wedding where everyone, knows, likes and trusts you. Lots of hugs!!

We were excited to shoot at Rock Island Lake Club as it has a stellar reputation and is a beautiful venue!

We shot the 1st look lake side (where a groomsman caught a large mouth bass!) and then head into the woods for the swing.

Rain threatened but we were able to take B&G photos and head inside as rain drops just started dotting the ground.

We had a wonderful ceremony conducted by a friend, and the most beautiful bride and groom speeches. There were few dry eyes including one or two of mine.

Late that night it hit me that this was the last Murray wedding. It has been so much fun and been so wonderful being there for you guys…but I am gonna miss you!

Amanda + Chris’s Warwick NY Wedding!

Amanda + Chris had an amazing wedding at Château Hathorne in Warwick, NY yesterday. I met Amanda and Chris 8 years ago at Steph + Randy’s wedding! It was good to see them again –and their two boys! I hadn’t been to the Château before –stunning grounds and charming inside. Great food and staff!

Amanda + Chris had postponed their wedding twice so we were psyched to finally get it on!

Château Hathorne was where Chris popped the question to a resounding YES!

It was good to be shooting a wedding again and better still to be amidst a group of vaccinated friends and family. It was a hot day but quite perfect. Thank you guys for inviting me!

Casey & Chris’s Forever Session in Newport, RI

I shot Casey’s sister Laura’s wedding in 2018 and so was delighted when Casey contacted me to shoot her wedding in 2022. In fact we shot the eSession on her sister’s 4th wedding anniversary!

Casey & Chris wanted their forever session in Newport, RI where they met as chefs at the Castle Hill Inn. We had a rainy day but that seemed fitting for this seaside town this time of year.

The rain let up a half hour before sunset letting us dry-up and bathe in sunlight! Looking forward to Casey + Chris at The Mill Lakeside Manor.
