To First Look or Not

As far as photography goes, to do a first look or not is one of the key decisions a couple has to make on their wedding day. Years ago this wasn’t even an option. Weddings and wedding photography were embedded in tradition with little or no wiggle room for innovations. Over time though traditions were loosened up a bit and the ‘first looks’ became more and more common. Today many couples still opt to stick with...

Wedding at The Olde Mill Inn

I photographed Corin and Scott’s wedding on a late and cold Fall day at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge New Jersey. While the Olde Mill Inn has an awesome courtyard that is great for a wedding ceremony, the weather was way too cold for that to be a possibility.

Story behind the Wedding photo #7

Some years ago, to be exact in 2006, I photographed a wedding on a weekend in which the entire east coast was experiencing the remnants of Hurricane Ernesto. Ernesto was a category 1 hurricane that by the time it made it’s way to New Jersey it was already a Tropical storm. But don’t let that fool you, a tropical storm is no joke, especially when the wedding reception is taking place ON THE BEACH! (story continued below)...

Candids at Weddings

A big part of a wedding photographers day is capturing natural, real, candid moments as they happen. Interestingly enough this wasn’t always the case.

Wedding at The Mansion at Mountain Lakes

I photographed a wedding at The Mansion at Mountain Lakes a couple weeks ago. This venue is one of the closest ones to my house being only a few miles away. The Bride Lauren and the Groom Sebastian didn’t have a first look, opting to see each other for the first time at the outdoor ceremony. For photos we first did the family photos and bridal party photos at the garden area of the venue and then the three of us headed out to a...

FAQ #1: “Do we own the rights to the Photos?”

“Do we own the rights to the Photos?” That is possibly the most asked question that I get from Brides and Grooms during our conversations or email exchanges. Possibly because it’s not answered on my website…until now! So here we go…. The short answer is Yes, you will have the right to print, copy, email, make an album, post the photos on your social media as you wish. Every couple gets a USB Drive with...
