Jessica + Dane, Lake Mohawk Country Club, Sparta NJ

Full disclosure, I’ve known Jess’s dad since 2001 when I met him at the NJ Herald. It took a few months but we bonded over music. I think he was surprised at my diversity, being such a young punk… Well, fast forward 14 years, I get a call from his daughter, who I had never known, that she needs photos and we became instant friends. I need to thank these two… last summer when I did their engagement photos they gave me great life advice. Thank you Jess and Dane…

…and yes, Kelly and I drove the bride to the ceremony because the limo never showed. Go Team!

Lisa + Janos, New Brunswick NJ

So… Hi, I’m back… I fell way behind on blogging as my life had taken some major changes last year. I’m diggin back and starting with my boy Janos and his beautiful wife Lisa, aka Mrs. Grilled Cheese (ask him). There was a sweet intimate ceremony that was live streamed to family across the Atlantic that couldn’t make it. Then the married couple WALKED to their reception hall! It was so cool and probably a first for New Brunswick. People beeped their horns, hollered congrats, and everybody slowed down. Then the food truck was a sweet treat and surprise for the groom and a delight for everyone, (including me). These two are the cream of the crop, a very belated Congrats!

Eamigh + Michael, Woodsgate at The Stroudsmoor PA

So yeah, their is a photo of myself and a photo of my second photographer Julian at this wedding. What can I say, the bridesmaids loved us… Heather “MF’n” Schultz was the maid of honor at this wedding. If you know her, you know what kind of party this was. If you don’t know her trust me when I say she brings the party. Oh yeah, Eamigh and Michael were also really cool. Hahahaha, I kid. An incredible bunch of friends with great stories to tell and two families that you can tell, just love their children so much. Congrats you two, Julian and I had a blast.

Crystal + Robert, Ninety Acres at Natirar, NJ

I first met Crystal many many years ago at Station Park in Sparta, she was petting a puppy and I worked for the NJ Herald and took her photo. Our friendship became bigger shortly after, then we sorta lost touch as happens. When she called me to shoot her wedding this past October I was so thrilled an honored. Little did I know that it was a wedding that would change me personally. There was so much happiness and joy that morning I realized I was not broken. There’s way more to it and too much to put here and probably not appropriate for this type of celebratory post either, just know that it was an incredibly moving ceremony, performed by her brother, and there was barely a dry eye in the crowd of friends and family that were behind them. Run on sentences? Anyway…

Love this family so much, I hope to see them again.

Hannah + Ryan, The Conservatory at SC Fairgrounds NJ

Hannah + Ryan, aka Fig, had a close set of friends that couldn’t stop laughing all day and night. So much happiness surrounded these two, Julian and I couldn’t help but smile all day as well. It was an incredible feeling to witness these two becoming a married couple. Lots of photos. Lots…

Erin + Pan, Il Tulipano, New Jersey

This is overdue, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Erin + Pan did it big, did it right. Garry and I worked our butts off taking tons and tons of images because it was a non stop party full of Greek traditions and close family. Friends were smiling the whole time. Congrats again you two!

Sarah + Sergio, Camp Linwood McDonald, NJ

Everyone at this wedding was called family. Family from France, family from Brazil, family from New Jersey. Sarah was married in the woods she grew up in. Flowers were planted a year ahead of time for decorations, the food was all sourced from local farmers, and the night was gorgeous. Sarah + Sergio had a lot of fun with their photos, and I had a lot of fun with them. Shout to Kelly on second camera!

The New Jersey State Fair, Augusta NJ

I only went a few times and brought a limited amount of equipment. Mainly just my 50mm lens. I did get to judge the Chili Competition for a second year in a row and it was really awesome! Anyhoo, here are my favorite images…

Brie + George, Culver Lake NJ

A happy family was formed last month on the shores of Culver Lake. Close friends and family got to know each other, laugh, and enjoy the breeze coming off the lake. Brie + George are just as perfect together, and their family is gorgeous. It was a beautiful ceremony by CT Krause, colorful flowers from Karen’s Kreations, and lots of food from Krave Catering.
