Kaitlin & Dan’s Wedding || The Grove | Cedar Grove, NJ

Kaitlin and Dan’s wedding at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ was pretty awesome. From the moment we started photographing, it was easy to tell how much love they have for each other. And what made the day even better, was how true to themselves they were in planning their wedding. Simpsons’ cake toppers and Ninja Turtle colored socks are a pretty sweet a personal touch and a good indication of the kind of bond Kaitlin and Dan call love.

We couldn’t be happier for the lovely couple as they begin their life together and remember, what fun and love what shared on March 28, 2014. We are so glad we could be there to document their day from start to finish, and we hope you enjoy the images for now and forever. Congratulations, you two!!

Heather & Nick’s Engagement Session || Prudential Center | Newark, NJ

Heather and Nick are BIG TIME fans of the New Jersey Devils. Customized jersey big. Never miss a game big. Both love the same team big. It’s safe to say they have Devil’s red running through their veins.

That’s why the Prudential Center was at the top of our list when it came to a really fun, really unique location where Heather and Nick could let their guard down and enjoy each other’s company. Although Nick left his guard down for too long and Heather made him pay for it – pulling his jersey over head and roughing him up in a real ice-hockey-esque fight scene. All’s fair in love and war, right?

Though not on skates, these two moved around pretty well on the ice, and Nick even recreated his proposal – and showed us what it would have looked like in front of 18,000 screaming fans.

From blue line to blue line, these two were a delight to photograph.  The happy couple gets married on April 26, 2014 at The Imperia in Somerset, NJ and we can’t to meet them again for the second period of action (behind the cameraicon smile Heather & Nicks Engagement Session || Prudential Center | Newark, NJ

Stay tuned for all best moments. Congratulations, you two!!

Olesia & Charles’ Wedding || The Palace Hotel | New York City, NY

Olesia and Charles wedding day was as unique and encompassing as their love for each other. While Charles grew up in New York City, Olesia’s originally from Great Britain. Joining these two estates involved inviting friends and family from across the globe, celebrating in fine style, and even spending time touring Central Park between the ceremony and reception celebration.

No strangers to elegance, their February wedding was wrought with style and flowing with accommodations fit for royalty. Rightfully so, these two young lovers are accustomed to creating their own luck and enjoying the good things in life. What makes for the best imagery, though, are the smiles and expressions they shared during intimate moments throughout the day.

It was easy to see why so many of their friends and family gathered to witness their nuptials after getting to know Olesia and Charles. We wish them both the best of luck and years of happiness together in a life full of opportunities to cherish each other and the love around them. Congratulations, you two!!

Kathy & Nick’s Wedding || The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ

Kathy and Nick were a great couple to photograph. Their expressions and affections were so real and apparent throughout each moment of the day, it was hard to not feel how happy they were to be marrying each other, and likewise, how happy everyone was for them. Which made us happier! It’s a wonderful thing to be in such upbeat company all day long, and makes the photo-making process more joyful.

We witnessed what tradition and dedication mean to a family. Marrying under a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony at St Demetrious Greek Orthodox Church, Kathy and Nick’s dedication to each other was represented in the beautiful and colorful customs of their faith. They celebrated their love and commitment at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ later that night, with a reception that was anything but dull. Please enjoy the photos and let them finish the story. Congratulations, you two!!
