Cape May, NJ Wedding at Mt. Vernon Beach | Samantha &Matthew

Cape May, NJ Wedding at Mt. Vernon Beach | Samantha & Matthew

 

Samantha’s dream wedding happened this past Memorial Day weekend! Her dream of a beach wedding happened in between the thunder and scattered showers. The gloomy day was not going to stop Sam and Matt saying “I do” in their simple yet beautiful beach ceremony.

The guys copied the “Beatles famous picture” while crossing the street to get the trolley. The trolley arrived on the corner of the main strip in Cape May, to pick up the groom and guests and take them to Mount Vernon beach. It was a few minute drive but everyone seemed to enjoy getting to start the laughs and celebrating early.

After a lovely ceremony we all jumped on the trolley and headed to the Victorian house that Sam and Matt rented for the reception. The backyard had a wonderful romantic beach theme for this cute intimate wedding.

Wedding in Blackwood, NJ at the Palace | Denise & Brian

Blackwood, NJ Wedding at the Palace | Denise & Brian

 

When you love a holiday, how do you celebrate? With a wedding of course! Denise and Brian invited friends and family to their wedding Cinco de Mayo at the Palace in Blackwood, NJ. Brian and Denise are down to earth but love to party, and their wedding was the perfect place to do so. Although it was raining outside, you would never know inside with all the shining smiles. Denise and Brian chose Disney’s Aladdin’s “It’s A Whole New World” to walk out of their ceremony to.

It stopped raining after the ceremony and we were able to slip outside for some bridal party and individual portraits.

Of course you have to walk in with sombrero, if your wedding is on May 5th.

Media, PA Wedding Celebrating Two Cultures | Vishal + Ajila

Media, PA Wedding Celebrating Two Cultures | Vishal + Ajila

An unusually warm fall day in late September, a sweet ceremony in a romantic stone walled church. Candles flickering and love floating through the air, as the flower girl lets the rose petals fall gently to the floor. Vishal and Ajila’s intimate wedding ceremony was the perfect start to their life filled with tradition. Ajila’s elegant white dress and chapel length veil paired with Vishal’s James Bond style black suit, a wonderful fit to their lovely personalities. The stone walls of the Kings Mills building help show off the bold red of the bridesmaids dresses and the groomsmen’s ties as the group showed off how much fun they like to have. We think their favorite part of the bridal party pictures was when the groomsmen tried to carry Vishal off, but he was holding Ajila’s hand as she tried to give him a kiss.

The fun didn’t end there, it’s time to change to outfit number two! Everyone went to change, because now it’s time to show off their party side and share in their Indian tradition. Ajila’s gorgeously stunning navy blue and gold saree looked amazing next to Vishal’s gold and maroon Sherwani, which he looked handsome in, by the way! We walked by, what we can only guess would be an outdoor ceremony space and did a few portraits there, before heading to an arch that just drew your eye to them, if your weren’t already just staring in amazement of how wonderful these two are together.

Well, it’s time now to hit the dance floor and if you have not been to an Indian wedding before, you better bring your dancing shoes. Everyone was on the dance floor after the cake cutting and and I mean everyone!

Congratulations to Vishal and Ajila!
Here’s to many years of happiness.

Couple’s Sunset Brigantine, NJ Beach Portraits | Renae + Tom

Couple’s Sunset Brigantine, NJ Beach Portraits | Renae + Tom

Renae has been going to Brigantine, NJ since she was born, a few days to a week down the shore with her grandparents and family. For the last few years, Tom has joined Renae’s family and the last two years they have done portraits on the beach. When you both have a love of the sand, salt air, and waves, where better to take your couple’s pictures?! Renae loves the sunsets over the bay, but wanted to show off the place they spent every chance they could this summer.

Couple's Beach Session

We started our session in the wet sand that was only kissed by the waves, walking along the blue water, a few in the lifeguard stand, before heading back up the beach to the dunes. Don’t worry we didn’t climb or disturb anything, we stayed at the bottom to get the long grasses in the background and the few that were on the beach in front of them. Tom and Renae love playing soccer and running around just having fun no matter what game they are playing. To capture this side of them, I had them run off the dunes and down to the water. That sunset was coming up on us fast, so we drove over the to docks. We got there just in time to see the sun come out from under the clouds, and get the gorgeous pinks and oranges.

Until next year, I will be swooning over Tom and Renae’s sunset pictures.

Prom at the Adventure Aquarium | Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

Prom at the Adventure Aquarium

Camden, NJ | Lauren + Mark

I love getting to work with my clients again and this time Lauren was all dressed up in her gorgeous red two piece prom gown, ready to prom at the Adventure Aquarium. We did her portraits in her backyard, which has a lake! The water in the background was beautiful, but all eyes were on Lauren and Mark. When I arrived they were already taking family pictures, it was pretty hot outside so I was glad to see they were hiding in the shade.

 

Mark and Lauren figured out how they wanted to walk out for promenade. I had to capture the twirling and laughs, as everyone there was helping the two of them decide which would be the best spin.

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street | Renae + Tom

Prom at The Mansion on Main Street Voorhees, NJ | Renae + Tom

 

It’s PROM!! Well it was on Friday night for Tom and Renae, talk about looking a-maz-ing! I know I have said this before about them in last year’s Junior and Senior prom posts, but with it being their last and final prom, it was a different kind of feeling. Yes, I just said last and final prom, Tom and Renae are a year apart in school so this was their fourth high school prom. I thought going to my two proms was overwhelming, but Renae and Tom made all of their glamorous nights look so easy.

 

Tom looked handsome in his all black suit with a white jacket. He also borrowed a friends car so he could drive Renae around in style. Renae’s ivory lace and blush Jovani dress was gorgeous and showed off her tan beautifully. They danced and twirled under the lovely willows and whispered secrets on the bridge.

Voorhees, NJ Couple’s Session at RiverWinds in West Deptford, NJ | Xori and Nick

Voorhees, NJ Couple’s Session at RiverWinds in West Deptford, NJ | Xori and Nick

 

Xori and Nick were such a pleasure to work with. Xori had told me that she wanted to do a session near water because they love to go fishing on Nick’s Grandfather’s boat. After the weather sent rain on our original day, we rescheduled close to Thanksgiving and the weather was amazing! While it was a little chilly, there was no gusting winds or cool breezes.

I was so glad that I wore my rain boots so that I could get a few shot, because I had to backup into the Delaware River. I could feel how cold the water was through my boots! Freezing my feet was so worth it, because the quiet moments they spent whispering and cuddling were my favorites to capture.

You know a pose will be magical when, you hear them say this is my favorite.

Joy and Love.

A Leola, PA Couple’s Wedding Portraits at the Inn in Leola | Stephanie and Shawn

A Leola, PA Couple’s Wedding Portraits at the Inn in Leola | Stephanie and Shawn

 

It’s a beautiful sunny late June afternoon day, and Stephanie and Shawn are going to stand up in front of their friends and family and say “I do.” The Inn at Leola Village, which is just outside of Lancaster, PA, made for a perfect backdrop to their fancy, country themed, wedding. I had the pleasure of being a photographer for David Tutera Photography.

When I arrived, I met with the groom Shawn, and we headed to the groomsmen’s room to capture some fun photos of them getting ready. I asked Shawn if he had a theme that he wanted me to capture as part of the men getting ready. He told me that, “We have a super hero theme, the groomsmen are all wearing socks that represent different Marvel and DC Comics. My cousin would have been my best man, but he passed away while serving in the US military. He was and is my hero, so I am wearing camo socks with his badge and the American flag that was on his uniform.”

The two ring bearers were adorable, one liked playing with the pool balls and the other one asked Uncle Shawn for help with his bow-tie.

The guys all looked dapper in their tuxedos and super hero socks while looking like they were on a movie set.

Stephanie looked amazing as her dad walked her down the aisle.

I’ve seen different ways to symbolize the joining of two families and their pink and blue sand was a wonderful way to show their families becoming one.

Congratulations Stephanie and Shawn!

“You are my best friend, and my other half. You mean the world to me and I love you!” Donna and Johnny have been partners for the few years, and their love for each other shines through in every way. Donna and Johnny’s families surprised them with a ‘Best Friends for Life’ ceremony in December just before Christmas at Adelphia. They were excited to say the least!

Everyone pulled their chairs onto the dance floor to watch these two best friends become partners for life.

 

Surrounded by family, Donna and Johnny said, “I promise to be your partner and best friend for life.”

 

Here is to Donna and Johnny and their happiness and love!
