Stroudsmoor Wedding Photographer ~ Heather & Scott

As most all brides do I’m sure Heathers Accu weather map app must of been opened at least once a day. It’s always a scary thing when it shows bad weather surrounding your wedding day…fourteen days ahead. =) She was prepared though and provided shawls for the girls. Much better than having to provide umbrellas. What was at first a chilly breezy day sure warmed up by the time their vows were spoken. The venue was at the Ridgecrest facility and the sun warmed up the Crestview Chapel overlooking the Cherry Valley National Wildlife Refuge nicely. As the sun set guests that ventured outside were warmed by the outside fireplace. Inside there wasn’t any need for heat as the party was heating up Ridgecrest. Congratulations to Heather and Scott. We wish them nothing but the best in life. =)

When I met with Meghan and Scott to discuss their wedding, we also talked about their engagement session. Why we do it, where to do it, and when. Usually the girls get excited about it and the guys…well, not so much =) So we get into why we feel that engagement sessions are important. Scott admitted the day of, he likes looking at pictures, just not being in them (don’t worry Scott, most guys say that). The location was perfect – at their own home. It fit their life and love for each other. As I was editing the images I could see and feel the connection between the two and the natural genuine expressions of love and laughter. Just driving to and from their property nestled into the side of a mountain, on a long dirt road, you can’t go fast at all, you have to drive real slow, take in the scenery, let your mind wander and appreciate the beautiful simple things in life. Meghan and Scott were great. As we walked the property for ideas they were open to everything I suggested and yeah, Scott got the picture he wanted in the barn they built. In the end we had fun and I believe, come their wedding day, they will know us better and not feel uncomfortable about pictures on such a special day. Hell, we’ll be just like part of the family. =)

Here is a recent engagement session with Heather and Scott in Clinton, New Jersey.
It was a sunny, crisp morning and we had fun capturing some beautiful images and grabbed a cup of coffee while there. Since it is still early in the season the tourists were not out in full force. Heather and Scott are planning their October wedding and it will be celebrated at the Stroudsmoore Country Inn.

Here are a few of my fav’s from the session…
