[Wedding] Ilana & Dan – Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ

It was a bright, clear summer day when Ilana & Dan tied the knot at one of the most gorgeous venues on this side of the Hudson River. They couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day, or a more perfect backdrop. With the NYC skyline in the not-too-distant horizon, they did their first look alongside the Morris Canal Basin, with their closest family and friends by their side. This was a long time coming for these two and their families, and were absolutely honored to be there to document it all!

[Wedding] Sarah & Paul – West Hills Country Club in Middletown, NY

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!

[Wedding] Peggy & Anthony – The Palace at Somerset Park

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!
