Katie & Marc were not sure where to have their engagement shoot having recently moved up from Philly but when I told them about the great aspects Liberty State Park had to offer along with the great view of the NYC skyline, the decision was easily made. I really enjoyed taking Katie & Marc’s Liberty State Park engagement photos. Despite the heavy clouds, the weather cooperated and we took full advantage.
Katie & Marc met when they both worked at La Salle University in Philadelphia. They hung out and it evolved into something much more.
Marc proposed at the spot where they first met, which was the parking lot at La Salle that Katie picked him up at to begin his interview. He kept it nice and personal with only the two of them present to enjoy the moment.
They both are most excited to celebrate and share their wedding day with their family & friends at a beautiful vineyard in NJ.
To conclude our shoot, Marc made sure to celebrate his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Championship by having shirts ready for Katie & himself. I can’t wait to photograph these two lovebirds’ wedding.

I really enjoyed taking Maritza & Wil’s engagement photos. With the purpose of creating their wedding save the dates, Maritza & Wil chose Sea Bright Beach as the location for their engagement session on this beautiful day in September. Everything about the day worked in our favor, be it the comfortable temperature, the few clouds that helped to block the sun and prevent a lot of squinting in the photos and especially the beach not being so packed with people.
In 2014, Wil proposed to Maritza on the beach while on vacation with their entire family. Maritza said everyone knew about Wil’s plan except her and she was beyond excited when he dropped down to his knee right outside of their beach house.
Maritza & Wil first met as 18yr olds working at K-Mart. Their lives took separate paths at the time but they remained friends throughout the years, losing contact here and there. After almost 18 years, they reconnected and began dating.
As their wedding day approaches, they are most excited to celebrate their love with all of their family & friends, those who will be there with them and those in spirit. I can’t wait to photograph Wil & Maritza’s NJ wedding.

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.

Monique & Shaun’s NJ wedding at the Oakside Bloomfield Cultural Center/Oakside Mansion was a pleasure to capture for my wife & I. Having grown up down the block and previously capturing a couple of weddings there before, I knew we would be able to get some great photos. Monique & Shaun’s bridal party, family and friends were so awesome and relaxed. They made us feel like a part of the family as everything about the day was perfect, from the weather which despite the chill that required heavy coats for some, was ten times better than the projected rain to the ceremony and the party that saw a full dance floor throughout the night. Oakside’s staff was just as great to work with as they kept the proceedings moving smoothly and even provided the great looking wedding cake.

Allaire State Park in Wall, NJ, played host to Brandie & Joe’s rustic engagement photo shoot that featured awesome photos on the back of a steam engine train, me sitting on the train tracks as Brandie & Joe walked them, a pretty cool skeleton on top of a carriage,some cool shots up against a barn, and best of all, some fun in the leaves and of course, all the beautiful fall foliage that we took advantage of as we walked the trails around the park and along the Manasquan River.
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.
