Suzanne and I love being a part of weddings full of love and emotion. Congratulations Kristen and Tony.
Reception location: The Brownstone, Paterson NJ
This one is a last minute entry - I missed the original cut, but it is so loved by Chris and requested by Tony that it had to be posted.
ENJOY! - Suzanne
We had a fun filled wedding day starting off with playing a little Guitar Hero.
Hey, keeping the groom relaxed and happy is important to me.
Reception location: The Manor, East Orange NJ
I can’t thank Ashley and Anthony enough for taking me seriously on my location recommendation for their engagement session. As crazy as it may seem, I knew the Costco store in Brick New Jersey would be the perfect place for a photo shoot and I wanted to challenge my creativity. When discussing the session with them, I questioned their lifestyle, interests - where they would they go on the weekends if they were not planning their wedding? Once they stopped laughing, in unison they answered “Costco. We are there all the time, that’s where we met.”
The session was an experience to say the least - even with the looks and commentary from customers, we had a blast! A few people even wanted to get in on the photos. Despite several department managers that were not too happy with what we were doing, I got in a few crazy shots and I think the pictures we created rock.
The session was all about fun. Suzanne and I can not wait until their wedding. I’m looking forward to the next “out of the box ” idea for a session, so if you ‘re interested, get in touch with us. Please don’t be shy!
Thanks and Enjoy,
When asked where to photograph an engagement session, 9 times out of 10 I’m going to reply ”Let’s go to the beach”. For Kristen and Jim’s session, I thought the best place would be Spring Lake Beach. We chose a spot on the beach that is a short drive from The Mill, where their reception will be next August.
Engagement sessions can be tough - couples don’t know what to expect: what to wear, how to stand, look, kiss, etc. etc. For us, every session is a learning experience about our clients. Once nerves fade, great picture taking begins and a relationship between all of us is created.
Kristen & Jim,
I had blast photographing you guys and love the way the shots turned out.
