epic space bat mitzvah

This amazing little bat mitzvah took place at Space in Englewood, New Jersey.  Though the family is from New York City, they picked Space because of it’s amazing atmosphere and staff.  And I have to say about the only thing that topped the event production were the heart-felt friends and family who attended the party.  It…

st. catherine of siena

Photographing Tania and Jose’s wedding was pure joy. The creativity was cooking, the vibes were great, and the amazing photos wouldn’t stop. It doesn’t hurt that I shot their engagement photos and we all knew each other and had a comfort level you don’t necessarily get otherwise. After some getting ready photos at Tania’s folks…

a wedding at st. vincents church

After shooting their engagement photos a year earlier, I was pleased to photograph this bride and groom’s wedding at the St. Vincents Martyr church. Following the nuptials and portrait photography, we had an awesome party at the Grain House At The Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ.

verona park wedding engagement

This engagement portrait session took place in Verona Park, Verona, NJ. We had a great time taking romantic, sun-dappled pictures in and around the park. Topping off the fun, the groom-to-be’s teenage daughter crashed our photo shoot for a group selfie. A year later I had the pleasure of shooting their wedding!

kids portraits

The grandmother of these two lively kids commissioned a painter to paint portraits of them. The catch is that the artist lives in Florida and the family is in New Jersey. Instead of choosing to fly everybody down to sit for a painting, I was brought in to photograph the images in their living room that the…

kirkpatrick chapel

I love shooting weddings at Rutger’s historic Kirkpatrick Chapel. The intimate space feels so authentic that I actually lose my sense of time when I’m taking pictures there. Due to it’s popularity, wedding parties are practically lined up at the door, so every time I’ve done portraits there, it’s been rushed. Still, I’m happy with the few…

kelly & tim

I had the pleasure of being the photographer for the wedding of Kelly and Tim at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset, New Jersey. One of my favorite moments was when the bride took a break to do some shots with her favorite ladies. Thanks to the warm weather, we were able to do some beautiful…

jamie & jim

Jamie and Jim were married last year at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange, NJ. The chateau offers classic settings and amazing grounds to celebrate your special day, and we were able to run around taking photos before the ceremony. Thanks to the all-inclusive wedding packages the chateau offers, we were able to stay under one roof…

valhalla lake wedding

This New Jersey bride started her big day off at Tangles Hair Salon while her groom stayed with the guys at hime. They wanted a cool, crisp fall wedding amongst autumn leaves, so they chose the Lake Valhalla Club. Obviously full of fun, they immediately jumped at my suggestion to put them in a sycamore tree for some…

married in matawan

This couple was married in St. Clement Church in Matawan, NJ. After the wedding ceremony, we went to a nature preserve with a vintage Rolls Royce they rented for the occasion for some portraits that highlighted both the car and the autumn leaves.
