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 Sussex County Fairgrounds Conservatory

On Sunday of this past week I had the honor of photographing Susan and Jose’s wedding day at the Sussex County Fairgrounds, one of my most frequent venues. Since the weather was still chilly the couple decided to have the ceremony inside the newly renovated area next to the conservatory. Photography started with some getting ready shots but the couple opted not to see each other before the ceremony so there was no first look....

Wedding at Sussex County Fairgrounds

Sussex County Fairgrounds is a relatively new venue for weddings. I first photographed a wedding there about 5 years ago and have been back many times since. It is one of my favorite locations. From a photographers point of view it is a great place to capture weddings. There are so many options for photos! Behind the conservatory (where the receptions are held) there is a garden area full of pretty spots, gazebos, pathways and water...

Conservatory at Sussex County Fairgrounds Wedding

The couple had over 200 guests and a band, a great formula for an energetic party. The Ceremony was at the...

Top 10 Wedding Venues

I get to see lots of wedding reception venues every year and this year I decided to make a Top 10 list of what I believe are the best wedding venues that I photographed weddings at in 2014. Being that I am a photographer, keep in mind that my selections are made from a photographers point of view. Meaning that the venues are selected mostly for their photographic possibilities. Not only the venue itself but the immediate area around...

Sussex County Fairgrounds

  My last two posts were titled Jersey Shore and Jersey City, not by design or anything, it just happened that  I recently photographed weddings in Jersey City and at the Jersey Shore, so those seemed like appropriate titles. So why not keep in tradition, make it 3 in a row and title this post Jersey Country.  It was after all photographed out in Sussex County in the Northewest Part of New Jersey at the Sussex Country Fairgrounds in...
