Sara and Michael - Ledges Hotel - Hawley, PA Wedding

Anyone who knows me knows that I love wedding ceremonies near waterfalls. Sara and Michael had that, plus a killer party in a nearby restaurant, their closest family and friends, and almost an hour of night portraits. As if that wasn’t enough, Sara and Michael are two of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They were up for anything, and all day I felt as if I was among lifelong friends. Needless to say, their wedding was the bomb. Check it out below!

Kayla and Nuri - Perona Farms Wedding - Andover, NJ

Some weddings really stick out in my mind when I recount all the ones I’ve photographed. It’s only been two weeks, but I can already tell Kayla and Nuri’s will be one of those weddings. I had such a great time working with everyone involved in their day, and it was so stress-free that it almost felt like something was wrong. Kayla and Nuri won’t be the only ones wishing they could redo their wedding day over and over again.

Side note: if you need to set up a retirement fund, talk to Nuri. Reach out to me and I’ll give you his info. I can say from experience that he’s fantastic to work with! And though I can’t speak from experience about Kayla, I think I’m safe to assume that she’s a wonderful teacher :)

Ashley and Justin - Chandelier at Flanders Valley Wedding, Flanders, NJ

Back before I was a wedding photographer, I worked at Modell’s Sporting Goods.  So did these two kids named Ashley and Justin.  I was very close with each of them in my three years at the company, so when they got engaged 1. I was super happy for them, and 2. I really wanted to shoot their wedding.  They reached out to me shortly after and I was ecstatic for the opportunity.

Their wedding was nothing short of amazing.  It was packed with tons of love, smiles, tears, and beautiful moments.  There are a lot of photos in this post, but don’t blame me.  You can blame Ashley and Justin for having a killer day.

April and Jason - Stroudsmoor Country Inn Wedding - Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania

Sometimes you meet a couple who you know are just perfect for each other. April and Jason are that couple. You could feel the strength of their connection simply by the way they looked at each other. Their wedding day was full of smiles, happy tears, and love from everyone there. Not only were April and Jason perfect for each other, they were the perfect fit for me as well. What really sealed the deal was when they told me they’d love to take even more time to do extra night shots. I mean, come on. Night photos are my favorite. And you want me to do more than I expected to be doing that night? Amazing.

Paige and Matt - Rock Island Lake Club Wedding - Sparta, NJ

I had a really tough time with this one.  Not the wedding... Paige and Matt's wedding was IN.CRED.I.BLE.  I had a tough time choosing a manageable amount of photos to post on this blog.  I was ready to put every single one on here.  Paige and Matt were so fun to work with, and much to my pleasure, everything ran on time and we had tons of time for portraits (this starts with hair and makeup, and The Mane Event always does a fantastic job of being on time, so thank you for that!)  I did manage to whittle down my selected favorites, and I invite you to take a look at them below!

Dana and Tyler - Mill Lakeside Manor Wedding - Spring Lake, NJ

I go way back with Tyler.  In 6th grade, I had three hits off of him and scored the only run of the game to beat his team.  It was one of the highlights of my Little League career.  We played baseball together through high school, and he is one hell of an athlete.  I met Dana while I was in high school, and through our common friends we spent plenty of time together and became good friends regardless.  Everyone had been waiting years for them to finally get married, and when they did, I was honored to be there to capture it.

Jennifer and Paul's Wedding - Tyler Arboretum - Media, PA

The first time I ever met Jennifer and Paul was at their wedding.  The fact that they live almost three hours away from me might have something to do with that.  Anyway, once the day finally arrived it was like we’d known each other for years.  They’re two of the most genuine and caring people I’ve ever had the privilege to work with, and their wedding was filled to the brim with all kinds of emotion.  I had such a blast working with these two and their loved ones.  The photos below are a few of my favorites, and they’re just the tip of the iceberg.

Angie and Austin's Backyard Wedding - Saugerties, NY

When Austin contacted me about photographing his wedding I knew I had to be a part of it.  I had classes with Austin my first year of college, and he quickly became one of my favorite people.  He met Angie towards the end of that year, and though I hadn't spent much time with her before her wedding, I knew she was just as fun and outgoing as Austin.  Their wedding was an incredible reflection of their easy-going attitudes and an all-around blast to photograph.  Don't just take my word for it, though, keep scrolling...

Aditi and Naveen - Morven Museum and Garden Wedding - Princeton, NJ

Aditi and Naveen's wedding had no shortage of happenings to photograph.  From the early morning puja, to Naveen's Baraat, to the numerous rituals during the ceremony, to the raging party afterwards, my camera's shutter had a very busy day.  For those of you who have never been to an Indian wedding, you're surely missing out.  Here's a peek at what a great one looks like:
