Sarah & Paul couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for their wedding at the West Hills Country Club in Middletown, NY. With just a handful of clouds drifting above as they exchanged their vows during their outdoor ceremony, their guests were first-hand witnesses of these two families becoming one. And because of the beautiful weather, we got to explore the beautiful grounds at the West Hills Country Club, which included the famous willow trees and a giant hilly meadow (much to the bride’s chagrin, regarding the latter). We couldn’t thank Sarah & Paul enough for agreeing to play along, if not for some amazing photos, then certainly for the aerobic workout! We wish these two lovebirds a lifetime of happiness!

Have you ever heard a band so good, and danced so hard in your life that your pants ripped right where the good Lord split ya? I haven’t (yet), but as a professional photographer, I’ve seen (and photographed) many folks who have. It’s one of the perks of the job :). Peggy and Anthony tied the knot at one of my favorite places in the universe (Karis and I got married here 10 years ago….egads!), and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. From the hair/make-up, to the entertainment, the venue staff, and even the bridesmaids themselves – we loved seeing all the familiar faces, and we were thrilled to have been a part of the celebration. Their ceremony took place on the East Terrace on a bright, sunny afternoon, followed by a raucous celebration below in the East Ballroom. You think you’ve got moves? You’ve clearly never met this crazy crew!

How many people can say they met their future husband/wife at a Bat Mitzvah? Not many, I would presume. But long story short, on that fateful night, in the flurry of celebration, sugary drinks and hormones, Chris asked Emma to be his girlfriend – and the rest was history (you’ll definitely want to ask these lovebirds for the unabridged version!). This wedding celebration was well over a decade in the making, and they couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque spot than the Indian Trail Club, which sits on the always gorgeous Franklin Lake in Northern NJ. A cool afternoon breeze was very much welcomed for their outdoor summer wedding ceremony on the lake, as these Emma & Chris promised to share their love with with another for the rest of eternity. We wish these two the very best!

With wind in her hair, and a little pep in her step, Kaitlin spent the afternoon playing hooky with Henry along the Hoboken waterfront. We couldn’t have asked for a better day; the air was cool, and the lighting was perfect. We even got a pregnant lady chuckle along with our antics :). These two lovebirds met a a house party, not too far from where we shot this engagement session. As such, it was only appropriate to document this milestone in a city that’s meant so much to the both of them. We had so much fun playing with these two lovebirds during their Hoboken engagement session, and we can’t wait to see them again on their big day!
