From the very first meeting, I knew Brandie & Joe were going to be a great couple to work with. Our engagement shoot at Allaire State Park only set the tone for the great wedding day photos at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, NJ. For his ceremony entrance with his groomsmen, Joe wanted to come out with a little “edge”, so he had them don bandanas, shades and black hats as they walked out to Brantley Gilbert’s “Kick it to the Sticks”. Brandie & her ladies kept it a little more traditional. During our cocktail shoot, we had a little fun on rt 9 creating our version of the Beatles famed Abbie Rd walking shot. Everything about Brandie & Joe’s wedding day was perfect, from the weather to the ceremony and the music and then of course, their family & friends.

Elisa & Harold enjoy traveling, so they felt what better way to share one of their passions with their guests. Instead of the traditional table numbers, they gave each table a different city in the world and the place cards were suitcases with the guests names and their respective city. The giant map/guest sign “book” showing a heart over NJ where Harold was born and a heart over Colombia where Elisa was born will be hung up in their dining room. Their Colombian coffee bag favors represented their Colombian heritage. All of these details were put together by B Delighted Events, which is the shared business ownership of Elisa & her sister/maid of honor. The flower arrangements were meant to look like martini drinks with a straw. Elisa & Harold chose Pierre’s of South Brunswick because Elisa grew up going to Pierre’s when it was a small deli and felt choosing the location that held such great childhood memories for her would only bring her life experiences at the location to a full circle as she would now create wonderful memories as an adult. Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church was where Elisa’s family attended during her youth, where she had her confirmation and where Elisa & Harold’s daughter/flower girl was baptized, so it just felt right to have their wedding at a church that has meant so much in their lives. After meeting with Elisa & Harold for their NJ wedding photography, I was more than excited to learn my wife and I would be a part of capturing their wedding memories as their photographers. When we arrived at the Staybridge Suites for Elisa & Harold’s bridal/groom prep, they were the perfect cool and collected bride and groom just budding with anticipation for their big day.

Dana & Rob’s Pompton Lakes backyard wedding was filled with love, friends, food and drink and best of all, a fire truck. What more could you ask for?! With Rob being a firefighter, it was only fitting to have the neighborhood firehouse send over a fire truck for us to use for wedding photos. Toss in a nearby lakeside park for additional photos and a chance for the kids to have fun, let alone also allow the adults to bring out their inner child by playing on the swings, monkey bars and roundabout. Dana and Rob’s wedding day had everything you could ask for and it was my pleasure to be their wedding photographer.

Mersiha & Kemal were joined by their close family and friends at their Woodbridge, NJ civil ceremony wedding, which set the tone for their Waterside Restaurant dinner and photo shoot with the NYC skyline serving as an incredible background for their wedding photos.
As soon as my wife and I arrived for Nora & Aaron’s preparations, I knew this day was going to be great. You can’t expect anything less from such a down to earth, easy going couple who could not wait to see each other down the aisle at Flanders Valley and had nothing but big ol’ smiles throughout the day.
