Jillian and Patrick's Wedding at Allaire Village

I had the great pleasure of photographing Jillian and Patrick’s wedding this past September 28th. I had been to the historic village at Allaire many times, for engagement shoots and wedding party photos on the grounds, but this was the first time I also captured a wedding in it’s historic chapel! The day started out quite rainy but by the time we started gathering for the ceremony all the rain had stopped and the natural light was perfect!

After the ceremony we walked around the village taking photos before heading to The Reception Center in Matawan, NJ for the reception.

The party was so much fun and the DJ, Adam Saber Entertainment,  kept everyone dancing all night long! So much fun!

Please join me in congratulating Jillian and Patrick and wishing them a very long and happy life together!

Melissa and Brendan's Wedding at Bayonet Farm

I've always enjoyed rustic weddings and Melissa and Brendan's wedding at Bayonet Farm was just such an occasion! This DIY wedding was rustic through and through, from the rustic barns, abandoned farm house, tractors, and small herds of deer running through the fields, this was a very down to earth and wholesome celebration.  Please join me in congratulating Melissa and Brendan on their wedding and wishing them a very long and happy life together!

Petra & Brian's Brooklyn Wedding Movie Trailer

Petra and Brian choose a most unique place for their wedding, a  famous revolutionary war 1699 Dutch farmhouse nestled right in the heart of  Brooklyn, the Old Stone House. As hundreds of children and their families played, and enjoyed the beautiful sunny day in the park surrounding the Old Stone House, Petra and Brian exchanged vows amongst family and friends under the old trees on the grounds of this historic house. 

We wish Petra and Brian a lifetime of happiness and love together!

Bhavani and Timur's Engagement

Monday evening I met with Bhavani and Timur to capture images for their engagement. We met in a neighborhood called Vinegar Hill in Brooklyn, NY. Vinegar Hill is an amazing little area that hasn't changed much in over 100 years. Original storefronts line up along  cobblestone streets which give this place a real old-time, vintage vibe. This was a special place for both Bhavani and Timur as it was the location in which they first met. Timur, also being a professional image-maker, brought along his Fuji X100 to grab some shots of Bhavani as I grabbed shots of them both. It is clear in these pictures that not only are Bhavani and Timur fun and playful, but their love for one another is true and genuine and that they were meant to be together. We wish Bhavani and Timur a long and happy life together! Can't wait for the wedding!

No. The raw files, whether it be photographic camera raw files or the raw unedited video footage are merely the building blocks from which I work to create your final product.
