Stephanie + Eric had a gorgeous day for their wedding. There was pregame carp fishing at Rock Island with the boys and pretty much a party in the loft with the ladies. Hand tied fly boutonnières, ceremony selfies, Busch Beer toasts, and some wild dancing not pictured…gotta keep this PG-13…and man do I love a messy table.
A sweet and small elopement with just family, Andrea + Tim made their vows on Promise Ridge in the Poconos. My friend Alisa was the celebrant and Cafe Duet in Stroudsburg catered a gorgeous dinner in their garden in Stroudsburg, PA. I love these small weddings.
Tina + Sam were surrounded by family, friends, and a lot of children on their wedding day. Meshing two families together, there were endless candid moments, some you’ll see here, some you might want to ask Tina to see! I only wish I stayed overnight and went smallmouth fishing the next day. Next time.
Kristen + Ed were married underneath warm lights, underneath tall trees, with only their parents with them. Their moms and dads helped bless the rings during Celebrant Alisa Tongg’s sweet and loving ceremony. You should elope in the Poconos. You should elope at Promise Ridge. Its pretty much perfect.
A gorgeous bride, an excited groom, a bunch of family there to party, and the dynamic duo of NJ wedding photography, Rachel and myself. How could it not be perfect? Lots of little moments here that made Stacey + Anthony’s day uniquely theirs.
Shout out to Justine + Eric! You the real MVPs!!!!!
Christina + Jeff, sitting in a tree, K I S S I N G, first comes love, then comes marriage, and yes I waited so long to blog that these two are now expecting! Woohoo!
A hot wedding, end of July, bunch of former clients of mine and a few future ones as well. I feel very fortunate this crew has kept me around to photograph thier lives. Check out one hell of a wedding with lots of kids, lots of laughs, and lots of making out.
First time I photographed Amie + Trevor, I immediately started drinking after it was over. We were at a brewery in Newburgh NY, where we had just finished their engagement session, and we bonded over sour beers. Fast forward to their wedding day and they brought me some great hard to get beers from VT.
I’m going to be honest here… I really, really, really like these two.
A very small, intimate wedding for Alyssa + Tim last year. I was there for just a couple of hours as we hustled around the property at Skytop Lodge. I was asked again recently why I make so many photos of couples kissing, same answer as before… kissing is awesome.
Lots. Its a weird word by its self. Abundance is better. Yeah, I’ll go with that… Tara + Matt had an abundance of love to share on their wedding day up in New York. There were an abundance of little sweet moments between them, with their friends, with their families, and especially the flower girls. I had photographed Matt’s brothers wedding in PA a few years earlier and already loved the whole crew so I was excited to spend the day with them again. Later in the fall I would photographer his other brother’s family portrait in NJ and realized three brothers, all married to three dynamite blondes but…in different states…maybe it is just one guy living multiple lives…
I’ve known Melissa since we were in grade school. First page in our Senior Year High School yearbook is of Melissa, our mutual frined Erica, and myself with our pinhole cameras from photo class.
My first time in Charleston, I ate like a king, made a bunch of photos, and also captured Melissa and Brian’s wedding day. It was a small shindig with family, close friends. apple pie moonshine, everyone pitching in, and the sweetest send off with words from her sister Jessie. I felt honored to be there.
Side note: If you are in Charleston, go to Leons Oyster Shack, get the fried chicken, fried oysters, black eyed pea salad, and au gratin potatoes…Banquet on draft.
