During the summer months, Renae and Tom spend their days at the beach, playing soccer, washers, swimming, and of course watching amazing sunsets over the bay. Celebrating the start of another chapter in their lives, they wanted to capture an amazing close to the summer. We tried for a great sunset, but a storm was rolling in just as the evening started.
Don’t worry! We still had a blast walking around the sandy beach on the bay side of Brigantine. The Atlantic City casino lights were shinning bright as Tom spun Renae around dancing just out of the waves reach.
Our adventure of finding a sunset didn’t end there, we set out the next night and found an amazing colorful sky and a red sun. Harrah’s Casino in AC has a great bay walk behind it. We walked along the path towards a dock that we knew would be a great spot for the pictures I had in mind. It was so much fun watching and taking pictures of an adorable couple during the magic of a red setting sun.
Renae even took a few of Matt and I!

The world is a big place, I feel like I just can’t see it all. Do you ever get that feeling? This feeling comes most to me when I am on vacation, while going to the beach every summer is a lot of fun. I feel like I am missing a whole world that is right in front of me. I had always known about panoramas, but didn’t really know how to achieve that in my camera.
In college I did them all by hand and let me tell you, it’s not that fun to try to stitch together 10 pictures. I never had created the right size canvas to create the final image, of course the coolest tool in Photoshop to create panoramas was sitting just under my nose. Once I found it, there was no stopping me.
I’d say on pretty much every vacation I have taken in the last few years, I have taken pictures so that I could create my own panos. They bring this amazing view home with me so I can share it. Big mountain views, crashing waves on the Hawaii shores, “my own” jersey beaches all coming to life.
The world is still really big and I’ve only started exploring it, but at least I am now able to feel like I can see it all.
