Nina and Kens wedding day was one of those SCORCHING HOT + HUMID days we seem to be having a lot of this summer in New Jersey. Ouch! I didn’t hear any complaints from anyone though, and for those following the blog, the new short sleeve black T’s are turning out to be a big win on these hot days! Nina and Ken both got ready at the Borgata in Atlantic City. They had this great frosted glass wall in the lobby that was awesome for photography! And although it was tucked away and didn’t interfere with the casino, management isn’t too keen on photography in its casino! We did what we could in a limited amount of time, and it turned out great regardless! Nina and Ken had a fantastic wedding day, and judging by all the smiles on their faces throughout the day, I think it’s safe to say that they had a blast as well! Congratulations you two!

I just got back from a wonderful vacation from Martha’s Vineyard with my family. We had an amazing time together and I can’t wait to blog it. However, I am behind on blogging weddings so this will have to be put on the back burner for now. So, I will only post a few for now, but will certainly revisit this down the road!

I couldn’t believe how vivid the stars were out where we were staying. This was taken about 50 yards from the “Writer’s Cottage” we rented, which was right on Deep Bottom Pond. Those splashes were from me throwing rocks into the water during a long exposure and lighting them with my head lamp.

  • katie barnes - oh my. that first shot is simply stunning! gorgeous work… can’t wait to scroll through the rest of your blog.

  • Carey Nash - These are wonderful!!! Great stuff!

  • Vikki Bakus - A-m-a-z-i-n-g! If I ever go to Martha’s Vineyard, I’ll be disappointed coz your pics steal the scene.

  • Aunt Arlene - You’re work is awesome. What a talent you have. Keep up the good work.

  • Maggie McGill - LOVE the last image, it took me a few minutes to figure it out, the colors are gorgeous!

  • Todd Laffler - Thanks so much everyone! I can’t wait to come back to this when wedding season slows down a bit, I have a lot more to share.

Oh man, I just love these photos of Zoe playing with the hose in the back yard! I know I’m biased, but I don’t care! It’s days like this that I am most thankful to be a photographer! Zoe loves playing with the hose, especially on the “Mist” setting. So, we were messing around in the back yard when the sun just got low enough to start back lighting the spray from the hose. I grabbed my camera and this is what happened…

Zoe likes to fill her rain boots up with water and then jump up as high as she can and see the water slosh out!This is probably my favorite photograph I have taken of Zoe to date!

  • ryan - she doesn’t look mischievous at all! 😉
    love your work with the sun here, especially the last one, great image.

  • jeff tisman - you’re hired!!! awesome shots man!!

  • Stephen Govel - that last shot is money. nice ones man!!!

  • Jay - Such great shots!

  • Jackie Hook - I love the child like innocence you caught in this picture, it makes you think of your own childhood days. Because of you she is going to have so many great memories to look back on.

  • moo - this series reminds how much i love summer and how awesome it is to be a kid.

  • pamela - Ok, I’ll stop stalking…you are AMAZING!! And your favorite of her is absolutely, distrubingly awesome! It’s photographers like you that fill me with such discomfort at the VAST knowledge and experience I have yet to gain.
    I’ve wasted way too much time at work looking at your beautiful images…can’t wait to be back!

  • Huy Nguyen - Precious!
