Denville NJ The Bar Mitzvah ~ of John Holley

Denville NJ The Bar Mitzvah ~ of John Holley

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

Easton’s Porters’ Pub Engagement

Easton’s Porters’ Pub Engagement ~with Amanda & Bryan

We had a fun engagement session with Amanda and Bryan at Porters Pub in Easton, Pa. This is the spot where they enjoyed their first date.
Even though it was restaurant week in Easton, the staff and customers at Porters were very kind to allow us access and put up with us while we created images. Afterwards, we stayed and enjoyed some great food and drinks. The planning is going full force for their wedding celebration in August.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session.
