ASHLEY & JEFF ~ WEDDING ~ NEW JERSEY

We were so happy to take part in the wedding of one of the sweetest couples ever , two people clearly so in love!!! The grounds were breathtaking and Basking Ridge Country Club , one of the best venues we have seen. We lucked out again on weather and love it since the bride and groom have so much time for portraits on the grounds.  One of the best parts we loved was the first reveal Ashley did with her father, it was very special and certainly showed the bond between this sweet bride and her dad !! It was wonderful working with this couple from the beginning , so easy going and great with pictures, which makes things easy and of course , gorgeous pictures.

The most beautiful day in August with blue skies and a gorgeous mountain top wedding @ Skyview Golf and Banquets !! Our bride and groom were absolutely radiant and glowing !!

OH BABY ......

We love the fact that we have clients who keep returning to us for all their photo needs , be it family sessions , baby bump/maternity or other special occasions . We get to know them over the years and see how their families evolve and multiply ,it is so special !!! One of the sessions we love is the maternity sessions we do. We love doing these outdoors with ample natural light and nature as our backdrop. Here are some of our faves !!!

~JORDAN'S CAKE SMASH ~

So if you have done portrait work with kids,  you know you have very limited time ... All kinds of things can and will go wrong !! They just have to be in the mood ~ That is where we come in .... patience and waiting is part of the game. In this case, Jordan made our job so easy , he was delightful , smiley and just so cooperative !!! What else could we ask for .... HE ALSO LOVED HIS CAKE -ONCE HE TASTED IT !!! We had such a fun time with this munchkin !! We specially love B&W photos with these type of shoots .....

TARA & MICHAEL ~ ENGAGEMENT SHOOT

What troopers !!! It was a beautiful spring day , but COLD and WINDY !!!  Yet nothing stopped these lovebirds from doing a fantastic shoot.  The NJ Botanical Gardens is a beautiful location for an engagement shoot , lots of lush grounds and gardens  nestled by ponds and water lilies. There is always somewhere new to discover  . We had a great time with Tara and Michael and can not wait until the wedding ....

LAUREN AND MIKE ~ ROCK ISLAND LAKE CLUB ~ NEW JERSEY

JUST WOW .... What an incredible wedding at an incredible venue and breathtakingviews , Rock Island Club in Sparta,  NJ !!!  We initially did Michael's sister's wedding fews years back.

Props or No Props - That is the Question .....

Everyone is looking for pictures that are different !! These days with Pinterest and other DYI sites , ideas are abundant for sure .... We have had our share of cute and unusual props and ideas and LOVE them all !! Bringing a few things along to a wedding , like a nice hanger, ring boxes,  family heirlooms and etc.  are always beneficial and add to the creativity of the photos . Although as photographers , we are always looking for unusual and interesting places to display rings, flowers, dresses and such, which happens mostly during prep time, we are always open to suggestions !! Here are some faves...
