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!!

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!

I met Kristen and Chris at Chris’s brother Jeff’s wedding. We had a phenomenal day and made amazing images for Arlene + Jeff so when Chris and Kristen decided to get married they came to me and hired me immediately.
It is always fun to work with the same family more than once –showing up at the wedding like another friend. Chris’s parents jokingly told me they have on kid left to marry off.
On K+C’s wedding day it POURED all morning up until 3PM. More than an inch of rain. There was some flooding here and there. Their wedding wasn’t until 5:30 PM and I never get rained on all day so we were able to have the ceremony outside and then shoot our portraits in the immediate area surrounding Liberty House.
When it got dark we had a light rain –perfect for a few shots to freeze the rain drops behind the bride and groom!!
Liberty House did a fantastic job –thanks for the Chilean sea bass!
Nicole Contessa of Anna Rose created some gorgeous florals.
It wouldn’t have been half the party w/o Dave of DTR Entertainment at the helm!
It was a great day for all of us!!
I used to work with Kaitlin in another career. I was delighted when she contacted me to book an eSession and her wedding.
We shot Kaitlin and John’s eSession along the Palisades almost a year ago. Great photos and great fun. Their dog even joined us for the 1st part of the eSession!
Wedding was at the excellent Park Avenue Club on 4/21/17. We shot the 1st look and portraits at Loantaka Park in Morris Township. My new go to for bridal portraits for sure.
I couldn’t have done it w/o Jed Smith photography –my unofficial lil brother! Here are the other great vendors who were the team behind the Bride & Groom!

We shot Dani + Ali’s wedding Nov 2014:
I was so excited to be asked to take newborn photos of their 1st child a few mos ago.
Liam Jake was born 8 weeks early. I shot these photos for Moms Ali +
Danielle today, but Liam wasn’t due until April 9th. Was really good to see them and their
beautiful, beautiful beautiful…Beautiful boy-oyy!
We love our clients.
June will be my 11th year as a wedding photographer. All those years I have dreamed of shooting a Skylands Manor in Ringwood, NJ. I have spent hundreds of days in Ringwood state Park since I was a kid. So this opportunity was very emotional for me.
Luckily I had may passionate partner in photography, Jed Smith photography, along to help me make the most of shooting in one of NJ’s most-storied wedding venues!
Lauren + Danny were amazing from our first meeting, through their engagement session and on their wedding day. Much love to them both!
The 1st look was pretty moving, the first kiss passionate and the first dance was beautifully and energetically choreographed by Lauren. The entire bridal party had a role. What a happy energetic wedding!!
Table two had a sign saying 2 was then number of kids Lauren + Danny wanted to have. Hope we get to hang out and take some maternity, newborn and family photos one day. Hugs all around and a beer or two!

Michelle + Christopher’s Barn Wedding at Perona Farms in Andover, NJ and Sparta, NJ was awesome fun!
As always –The Perona Farms staff was at the top of their game. From courteous service to amazing food, all bases were covered.
Christopher has lots of cool details to go with his tux and Michelle’s dress was to die for. Their amazing families and bridal party killed it.
Christopher’s “World Seriesing” where he was sprayed with champagne and beer was about as fun as a wedding can get!
Loved working with you guys –hope to see you for more photography soon!
