Wedding Photos from The Rockleigh, NJ

Jess and KB’s wedding was at the grand St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Cathedral

in Paterson with getting ready and reception at The Rockleigh. 

I had shot their engagement photos back in the spring of 2021 at the NJ Botanical garden so we already had a great rapport on wedding day.

KB + Jess were in such a jubilant mood –it was great to be around them. They are ADORED by their friends and family so it was a high-energy love-fest at The Rockleigh! My 12-hour day literally flew by!

Park Château Wedding Starring Malika + Ray!

It was so much fun shooting Malika + Ray’s wedding! I had already met them because I shot Ray’s brother Kimornie’s wedding a month earlier. At that wedding Malika was Maid of Honor for bride Jessenia. It is always great coming into a wedding where you have met the B&G at a another wedding and plenty of the guests too.

Wedding was at the amazing Park Château –a venue I had long dreamed of shooting at. With me as 2nd shooter was Amanda, owner of Creative Pigments Photography. She killed it!

Awesome crowd with such a positive, high energy. It was a fab night –as the images will attest.

At the end of the night I kicked back for a bit and had a drink with Kimornie and Jessenia. Pretty great way to end the evening. I better get back to editing their photos!

Heather & Stu’s Intimate Rutherford Wedding

Heather and Stu wanted an intimate wedding with family and friends so close they are family too. So they took a few hours on a Spring Saturday in Rutherford, NJ and got married in a cute space on top of a restaurant. Lots of kids, lots of fun.

Before the wedding we got together for photos in a sliver of a park that was absolutely perfect. It was a good day and a great wedding!

Casey & Chris’s Spring Lake NJ Wedding Photos

A few years ago I shot engagement and wedding photos for Casey’s sister, Laura. When I received the call from Casey asking if I was available to be her photographer my answer was a resounding YES!

Casey and Chris are chefs who met while working in the kitchen of a RI resort hotel. The soon found out they had more in common than a passion for cooking.

They now run a fabulous patisserie, The Baker’s Grove, in Shrewsbury, NJ. Follow them on IG for amazing pastry photos @thebakersgrove

Dana + Paul’s Couthouse Wedding

Dana contacted me over the holidays looking for a wedding photographer for her and Paul’s Bergen County Courthouse wedding. Just 2 hours of coverage…well actually 90 minutes as I provides an extra 30 at N/C. I think the best photos of the day were when we got back to their home after the ceremony.

The teary eyes at the courthouse were testament to their love and the love of the family in attendance.

Dana + Paul off on their honeymoon –Bon Voyage, guys!

A Sullivan County Wedding

Sarah + Caleb’s wedding included the most beautiful ceremony site ever.

Getting married stream-side in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on a perfect fall day is just about perfect.

Peace and love to the Rhoad and Moore families!

Michael & Jackie’s Catskills Engagement Photos

I first heard from Jackie on August 2nd, looking for a wedding photographer for her and Michael’s Oct 23, 2022 wedding. Even though I spelled her name wrong in my reply (Jskie?) We finally connected for a Zoom call on August 1st. I knew immediately they were going to hire me. Our calls have been rambling, relaxed,conversations full of laughter. I am smiling now as I write this!

Mike said Lake Minnewaska was his favorite place in the world and he wanted to shoot their engagement session up there. 1:15 is a longish ride for an eSesh but I had been to this emerald of a lake surrounded by limestone cliffs and knew it would be great for the photos and a great place to finally meet Jackie & Michael. We met in the parking lot…”Bring it in,” Mike said, and gave me a hug as did Jackie. We proceeded to walk around the lake and take photos when we hit a beautiful, inspiring spot. The view over the mountains looking away from the lake was the prettiest autumnal display I had ever seen…it was moving. We had to wait for people to leave…but once they did we took some photos and celebrated for a bit, taking it all in.

Too fucking cool!

Colleen + Richard’s Morris County Wedding

Congrats to Colleen and Richard! Getting ready at the Morristown Museum was a stroke of genius. We got to take photos in a gallery that was not set to open to the public for a couple more weeks. 1st look in the Museum on stairs festooned with flowers. St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Parsippany for the wedding. Dinner was at Churrascuria Plataforma in Manhattan.

An intimate fun wedding spanning two states –thanks again Colleen + Richard!

Love –Tom

Erica + Brandon’s Elegant “Tent” Wedding

A most amazing “Tent” wedding in Airmont, NY last night. I was blown away buy the luxury, elegance, and attention to detail by event designer Eric of @AuroraRose.Events. Eric is Erica’s cousin and pulled out all the stops.

Erica and Brandon were so chill and cool. During one teleconference Erica insisted they didn’t want too may photos as there were not photogenic. After this gallery makes the rounds that spurious claim will clearly be proven false.

Love to Erica & Brandon, back safely in Brooklyn after their odyssey into the wilds of Bergen County, NJ and Rockland County, NY.

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!
