Behind The Camera at Weddings

In 2017 I added a classic Hasselblad camera, which produces amazing quality photographs, to my camera bag and took it out for occasional photos at weddings. I decided to actually film what I see through the viewfinder as I am shooting which gives the viewer of this video a behind the scenes look at the ‘making of’ these photographs. Check it out and relive a few moments behind the camera with me in 2017! About the...

Wedding at The Chandelier

I photographed Juliet and Juan’s wedding at The Chandelier in Flanders NJ on a day that threatened heavy rain. When I left my house the weather was sunny but by the time I drove west on rt 80 dark clouds hovered. When I got to The Chandelier it was pouring. We started with the First Look since the couple didn’t want getting ready shots. Luckily after arriving at the venue, by the time we were all ready for the first look...

Grounds for Sculpture Wedding

I recently photographed Christine and Dave’s wedding at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ. This is an amazing place to visit on a day trip, so to get married there it’s even more amazing. If you have never been there I recommend you take a drive down. You will know you are a few miles away when you suddenly start seeing gigantic sculptures on the side of the road in a variety of location not related to the Grounds...

Princeton and Boathouse at Mercer Lake Wedding

A couple weeks ago I photographed Ryan and Quinton’s wedding day starting out at the ceremony in Princeton. The couple met on Campus and after the ceremony at the beautiful Chapel we went around campus taking photos of the couple and their wedding party. Later we headed over to the beautiful Boathouse at Mercer Lake which is in the middle of a Park and has a great view of Mercer lake. The Cocktail hour and reception were both...

The Manor in West Orange

The Manor is located in West Orange, New Jersey and is one of the most enduring wedding venues in North Jersey. The first time I ever heard of the Manor was as a kid some time ago. My Mom and I were in the area and she happened to have a camera on her, so she decided to pull into the Manor’s parking lot and take some photos of me by the various waterfalls and fountains. Little did I know back then that a couple decades later I...

Story behind the Wedding photo #6

This photo was taken at the Grain House which is part of the Olde Mill Inn but a venue on its own. Both hold ceremonies and receptions independently but share the same parking lot. In this photo the bride had just finished getting ready in one of the upstairs rooms at the Grain House and I was in the little hallway with a vaulted ceiling waiting to be called in. As I waited I noticed the window and nice light coming through it. Not...

Should we do an Engagement Photo Session?

Over the last few years engagement sessions have become more and more popular with couples, but still it’s not something every couple does. In fact most of the couples I speak with are kind of unsure as to whether to do one or not. So a question I get all the time is, “Do you think we should do an engagement session?” Well here is how I see it. From a photography standpoint it’s generally a good idea. Is it a...

20 Years!

This is my 20th year photographing weddings. My first was in 1998! I want to take a moment to thank all the couples that have hired me over the years. I truly appreciate the trust they put in me and I recall moments from every wedding I ever photographed. When at a wedding, I am on a mission and totally focused, so much so that if I see a photo from any wedding I photographed, I instantly recall the weather, the details, the people...

Meadow Wood Manor Wedding

I recently photographed Laura & Tom’s wedding at Meadow Wood Manor on Rt. 10 in Randolph. The day started at the Hanover Marriot where Laura got ready and I photographed some getting ready shots. Earlier in the week we had talked about where to take the family and wedding party photos. The couple had opted in doing a first look but the venue didn’t allow them to arrive early enough to get all those things done on time...

Story behind the wedding photo #5

When you are taking wedding photographs in public places you can’t expect to have the whole scenery just for yourself and at the Jersey Shore it’s no different. There’s a good chance that in many candid photographs there will be people in the background. But sometimes, like this photo in Spring Lake, thats a good thing! The little boy playing in the sand and running into the frame of the photo makes the image! I was...
