Christina & Gary – The Ritz Carlton Reserve – 5-27-2017

“Every now and then the stars align, Boy and girl meet by the great design, Could it be that you and me are the lucky ones?  Everybody told me love was blind, Then I saw your face and you blew my mind, Finally, you and me are the lucky ones this time.”  After quite some time away it’s finally time to blog again.  The only way to describe this couple is fun.   Christina & Gary showed pure happiness from the first time they saw each other as husband and wife.  Set at the beautiful Dorado Beach, A Ritz Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico, you couldn’t have asked for a more enchanted setting.  From sunsets to palm tress there was nothing short of pure magic that came out of this place.  Even the light bulbs were cool.  Top notch service mixed with excellent accommodations surely justifies the experience at The Ritz Carlton.  Hair and make up was provided by Alex Campus.  Christina & Gary were a pleasure to work with and their photos show just how much fun they really had.

Alexandra & Mark’s Wedding 10-14-2016

“When I wake up to your footsteps, As you get up out of bed, They make a sound that sounds so simple, But dances in my head, A melody so perfect, That it gets me through the day, And the thought of us forever Is one that won’t ever go away, All I need to know is, Where to stop, Take my hand and show me forever, So never will I ever let you go.” This amazing journey started with a trip to Pennsylvania and few very polite reindeer. (Check out this photo’s here)   What can I say, Alex & Mark were an absolute joy to work with from start to finish.  Each intricate detail was planned by Alex so that the wedding of her dreams would come to life.  Church was held at St. Patricks in Staten Island, NY.  The reception was held at the Ashford Estate in Allentown, NJ.  This amazing venue is starting to become one of my favorite places to photograph.  Shooting with me for the day was my the team from Majestic Creative who always bring a unique touch to the day.

Kara & James Wedding 10-09-2016

“I pick you. What’s more, I’ll pick you again and again and over. Immediately, undoubtedly, instant. I’ll continue picking you. When you understand you need to spend whatever remains of your existence with some individual, you need whatever remains of your life to begin as quickly as time permits.”  The sun came out at the exact right time for Kara & James at Clarks Landing in Point Pleasant, NJ. The couple said their “I do’s” in front of all their friends and family at the venue followed by an exciting night of dancing and tasty food.  Shooting with me for the day was Anthony along with Steve from Steve Tremer Video.

Marisa & Joe’s Wedding 10-08-2016

“Love is patient, love is kind, and what our love express is true. No amount of tragedy can tear, or break the love I have for you.  Both our lives have their own paths, but when we’re together the paths join, and I couldn’t have found a more perfect path to be on than with you.”  When you bring your dog to church you have officially won me over.  Marisa & Joe could not have been any easier to work with on their wedding day showing each other nothing more than pure happiness being together.  Their beautiful reception was held at one of my favorite venues, Seasons in Washing township, NJ.  Top notch food mixed with excellent service always makes of a great event.  Shooting with me fore the day was my second photographer Steve.

Catrina & Dom’s Wedding 10-01-2016

“It’s a very dangerous state. You are inclined to recklessness and kind of tune out the rest of your life and everything that’s been important to you. It’s actually not all that pleasurable. I don’t know who the hell wants to get in a situation where you can’t bear an hour without somebody’s company.  That’s the funny thing though, Now I can’t imagine any amount of time without you, so now we have to spend the rest of our lives trying to figure out how to make time stand still.”  On the first day of October in 2016 Catrina & Dom said “I do” in front of all their family and friends at the beautiful Cathedral Basilica of Sacred Heart in Newark, NJ. Shooting with me for the day was Anthony along with the team form Majestic Creative Films.

Dana & Dan’s Wedding 9-30-2016

“To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage; because we don’t want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt. You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things together.” So what, it rained and the show went on.  Not to mention the epic photo Dana & Dan got at the end of the night by braving the rain with out an umbrella.  Sweet, fun, and lovable is the best way to describe this couple.  No matter what went on that day you could always find these two smiling at each other.  The day was held at the Eagle Oaks Country Club in Farmingdale, NJ.

“You’re special to me in every way. Thank you for being who you are and for letting me be myself, If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you, My love for you has no depth, its boundaries are ever-expanding. My love and my life with you will be a never-ending story.”  Heart felt is the best way to describe the relationship between Christine & Mike.  Funny, enthusiastic, and charming are only a few words I can think of when asked how this couple interacted with each other.  Set at the luxurious beach hideaway Bonnet Island in Manahawkin NJ, this wonderful couple said their “I Do’s” in front of all their friends and family.  With me as always was my second shooter Anthony along with the team from Majestic Creative Films.

Christine & Charlie’s Wedding 9-23-2016

“Love varies. Sometimes, it’s a serious affliction. Other times, love gives you goose bumps. And then there are times when love is outright painful. But right now? It’s time to celebrate the silliness of it. You know, the adorable goofiness of it. The so-cute-I-can’t-stand-it-ness. It’s the kind that all of the greats write about.” Smiling is the only word to describe Christine & Charlie on their wedding day.  Set at the One and Only Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, NJ this wonderful couple said their “I Do’s” in front of their friends and family. With top notch service and amazing cuisine this one of a kind facility served nothing but the best.  With me as always was my second shooter Anthony.

Victoria & Joe’s Wedding 9-17-2016

“We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter, I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking toward me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.” What can I say about upstate NY other than “It’s different.” Set at The Sullivan Hotel in Rock Hill, NY, Victoria & Joe said their “I do’s” in front of all their family and friends.  With it’s modern decor mixed with a bit of rustic, this venue set the tone for some great images.  Music for the evening was provided by the ever so talented Danny Estrella who had the crowd rocking all night long.  With me as always was my second shooter Anthony along with the team from Majestic Creative Films.
