Clinton NJ Wedding Photographer

Clinton NJ Wedding Photographer

A couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful wedding of Chris and Mary. They both had a lot on their plate leading up to the wedding day. Mary and the girls were supposed to get ready at their new home they had just purchased. We all know how stressful buying a home is. Just days before the wedding the house water well decided to quit. Mary had wanted portraits on the landscaped property but unfortunately all the drilling for the well and heavy equipment had ruined all those possibilities. On top of that there was no water so now she had to get a room at the Holiday Inn hotel in Clinton, but there were no rooms available. Luckily her sister had booked a room there prior so she gave it up for Mary. Stylist from The art of Hair in Phillipsburg NJ came to the room to perform their magic.  On top of all that you have the stress of the wedding day and the fear of rain was in the picture. Mary’s mom all the while trying to calm everyone. It all worked out in the end. The skies remained calm and  she married the man she loves. They had a beautiful ceremony at  the Immaculate Conception Church in Annandale NJ and a fun party at Flynns on the Hill in Phillipsburg NJ.

here are a few of my fav’s

Allentown Bar Mitzvah Photographer

Allentown Bar Mitzvah Photographer ~ with Jared

On October 7th we had the pleasure of capturing Jared becoming a Bar Mitzvah. Jared has a wonderful, loving, fun family. Mom sure knows how to plan and throw a party. The service was at Keneseth Israel in Allentown and the celebration at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. Jared who is active in theatrical has no problem being animated. His theme for the party was just that, all theatrical. Red carpet, paparazzi and all that goes with it.

Here are a few of my fav’s

A couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of capturing  John becoming a Bar Mitzvah. The day started off at Temple Shalom with the afternoon party at The Mansion at Mountain Lakes in Denville NJ. It was a beautiful September day. Johns Pre session was at the Delaware water gap. John’s party theme revolved around Marvel comics super heroes.

Here are a few from his session and Mitzvah

Belvidere NJ Wedding photographer  ~ Jennifer & Mike

As soon as I met Jennifer and Mike, I knew we would click the minute their dog, Titan, came to me at the door with a toy during our first meeting. Both Jennifer and Mike are fun, easy going people with wonderful families. I thoroughly enjoyed my time after the wedding speaking with the family that flew in from Germany. It’s great to connect with people from across the map.

The church was just down the road from their residence and it was a perfect fit. It’s a small, older quaint church where the floor boards would creak as you walked down the aisle along with a rope by the door to ring the church bells to signify another marriage in the books. The bride arrived in style with a horse-drawn carriage which also held a bottle of champagne and two glasses for Jennifer and Mike to celebrate after saying their vows.  The bridesmaids wore stunning red gowns and groomsmen each had bow ties.  The cocktail “hour” and reception had food catered by the Brownstone and the dance music was provided by DJ Dave Rupell with Big Daddy productions. In addition to an ice luge, there was an on-premise hand rolled cigar table which was a nice added touch for the guests to enjoy. I believe that pretty much tells the story of a fun celebration for the newlyweds before they jet off to a two week honeymoon in paradise.

 

Here are just a few of my favorites.

Senior Photographer

Senior session with Brayden

It was only four short years ago that we captured Brayden becoming a Bar Mitzvah. Back then it was baseball and basketball. Now he’s added Volleyball to the list of sports he likes. Also added to his to do list is applying to colleges. He’s grown into a fine young man. Time sure does fly by.

Here are a a few of my fav’s
