Roy and Peter’s wedding was so much fun to be a part of. They booked me last year after a friend of a friend of a friend was at my house for a baby shower and was admiring some of my photographs on the wall, and told Roy and Peter about me. I’ve been looking forward to photographing their wedding ever since. My friend Walter Van Dusen drove down from Connecticut to help out being the second photographer. There are a few of his images below where noted. The ceremony and the reception were held at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange, NJ. Have fun being tourists in New York City guys!

I found this brochure in the lobby of the hotel that the guys were getting ready at. I thought it made a nice backdrop for their rings.Photo below by Walter Van DusenPlease don’t try to adjust the color on your monitors, Emily’s eyes really are this blue!I don’t normally post two ring shots, but come on, look how freaking cool these rings are! They have their wedding date in Roman numerals on them.

Today I got to meet Mae, along with her mom and dad in Jersey City. When I arrived Mae was still resting up for her big photo shoot! The second she woke up she was all smiles for me and my camera. We had a great time playing at the park and then chilling back at her crib. Thanks for a great day guys!

I love this one of the whole family sitting on their stoop.
Mae loved playing with these measuring spoons!

Off to the park.

Love this one with mom and dad in the background.

Mae loved being tossed around.

After Mae’s snack we found this caterpillar on her arm!

My wife surprised me with a little get away for our 10th year wedding anniversary! We are staying at Caneel Bay in Saint John. This is truly an awesome resort. The location, service, and food are all top notch. We decided to take our daughter Zoe with us and we are glad we did, we are all having so much fun together. The water is AMAZING! Most of our days are spent snorkeling and kayaking and sipping pina colada’s in the turquoise water. Thank you honey, you ROCK!

Here’s a shot I took from our room.
Zoe is loving vacation!

They have these wild donkeys roaming around the resort.
Ok, back to the vivid colors!

I could easily describe today in just one word, and only using three letters…WOW! I met up with Agnes and Warren at Washington Square Park today to do their engagement session. They picked the New York University area because that is where they both went to college and also first met one another. Agnes is actually finishing up her MBA there next year…go Agnes! They are such an awesome couple, and I sincerely had a blast photographing and just hanging out with them. Folks, the following photos are the result of having a bulletproof equation : Awesome couple + great location + plenty of time + good light + my camera = stunning photos! Enjoy! Oh, and be sure to check out the slide show I made at the bottom of this entry too!

This is one of my favorites of the day.

I can not tell a lie, the original shot had the letters “N R W” in the yellow circles, but I wasn’t satisfied with that, so I changed them to “W & A” Warren & Agnes!

Warren spots Agnes walking towards him…

…gets her to sit down and chat with him…

…and the next thing you know, he’s giving her piggy back rides!

Warren, in front of “his” building!

I’m so mean, Agnes was about to pass out from starvation, so we were heading to the local pizza place when I spotted this sliver of sunlight. I just had to get this shot. Don’t worry, Agnes is just fine!

Today I took my daughter Zoe to the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange. We had SO much fun today! We rode this cool train they had, saw some awesome animals, Zoe went on the carousel twice, played on the slide, had a blast with the water misters throughout the zoo (it was really hot today), fed some goats, and of course got ice cream! Thanks for a great day at the Zoo Zoe!

I love this shot of Zoe taking a picture of me using her camera!
I love how proud she is of this shot that she took. It’s hard to tell, but it’s a picture of my feet and shins!

Zoe’s new passion, orienteering! So what if the map is upside down!

Here she is chasing some mist from one of the water misters they had throughout the zoo.

Apparently Zoe wasn’t the only one who was hot today!

Zoe loved going down this slide.

I kid you not, this is a photo of two turtles fornicating, granted it’s SEVERELY cropped!
Ok, this one wasn’t taken at the Zoo, but I wanted to throw it in because I like it so much.
