I’ve photographed ten weddings so far this year, and I haven’t fully blogged a single one yet. And I miss it! So I figured what the heck, let’s start with the latest wedding and work my way backwards.  First up is the incredibly fun wedding of Michelle & Ethan – and the closest wedding to home I have photographed all year. 🙂

Michelle got ready in her old bedroom at her parents’ home in Califon, New Jersey, and from there we headed to the ceremony in Long Valley at Our Lady of the Mountain RC Church.  This church is special in so many ways- it’s how Ethan and Michelle first met, and also Ethan’s grandparents were married there.

After the ceremony wrapped up we all headed to Hawk Pointe Golf Club in Washington, NJ where 200 people partied their asses off. And I mean it! What a fun crowd it was to photograph. Michelle and Ethan’s friends and family jammed the dance floor all night long, truly enjoying each other and having some good old fashioned fun.

Congrats to our bride and groom! Here are my favorites from the day. Enjoy!

Some of Michelle and Ethan’s other fabulous vendors include:

A few weeks ago I hung out with Stacey & Jeff and they did a couple things that I also love to do: stroll around a city and make a few pit stops for an icy beverage. 🙂  This session was a lot of fun for me, as I got to know these two kinds souls over some good laughs and good beers.  We met up in Jersey City, which as you can see has one of the best views of lower Manhattan.  As Woody Allen would say: “It’s really a knock-out, you know?” I agree.  And so are Stacey & Jeff.  Enjoy my favorites from our time together! 🙂

When was the last time we had a really nice spring day? Well, it wasn’t the day I met up with Charis & Steve in High Bridge, NJ for their engagement session! It wasn’t supposed to be dreary and rainy, but Mother Nature had different plans for us.  It’s all good though, because we dodged the rain for a bit and got some great coffee at the super cute Scout’s Coffee Bar.  This detour turned out to be pretty appropriate for these guys as they frequently go out for coffee and brunch.  After the rain moved out so did we! We ended up at Lake Solitude to finish their session. Thanks Charis & Steve for being so patient, and a big shout out to Nicole from Scout’s for welcoming us to her coffee shop. Enjoy these previews!
