Cape May Convention Hall Wedding | Mike & Kelly

Last weekend’s Cape May Convention Hall wedding was a dream!  Mike and Kelly had the time of their lives.  I have never seen such a happy and excited bride as Kelly.  I’m so happy we were a part of their wedding day.

Clarks Landing Yacht Club Point Pleasant Wedding

I shot Jen & Kenny’s Clarks Landing Yacht Club Point Pleasant wedding on Saturday.  It was literally the nicest day we’ve had all spring.  Temperatures were in the mid-seventies with a gorgeous breeze off the marina.  Clarks Landing is one of the nicest venues I’ve had the pleasure of shooting.  I look forward to working there again soon!

Gold Badgley Mischka high heels

Totally in love with these gold sparkly Badgley Mischka shoes.

The bride carried her grandmother’s handkerchief down the aisle. It was her something old and something blue.

The bride’s gown had buttons all the way down the back. Her maid of honor used a crochet hook to fasten them all.

Modern Headshots in NJ

My studio provides modern headshots in NJ for those who want something a little different than the stiff corporate headshot (which we aslo provide for those who need them for professional networks liked LinkedIn).

I had the pleasure of photographing another photographer this week in the studio!  Kelly came in with a variety of outfits and even brought her own ladder.  😉

Lindsay & Josh’s Union Trust Philadelphia wedding was simply amazing!  I’ve been waiting for this day to come – I’ve always wanted to shoot at Union Trust and it did not disappoint.  What a grand space to have a wedding!  I adored working with this couple and this venue – I may be a city girl after all!

Funny story- when we arrived to the groom’s suite, he along with all of his groomsmen were already fully dressed! My second photographer had them redo a few things for the camera.
