Kristin and Juan are yet another amazing couple that I had the privilege of photographing on their most momentous day to date! They got hitched at the uber awesome Kirkpatrick Chapel in New Brunswick and then partied on over to the always hip Heldrich Hotel, also  in New Brunswick. I knew it was going to be a great day when I first met Kristin and Juan’s officiant at the chapel and he said to me, “I only have one rule, take LOTS of photos!”. Love him! Kristin and Juan were just amazing to work with, up for anything and giving me lots of time to do my thing, thanks guys, and a big congratulations to you both!

Yes, I razzed Juan for yawning!Heading over to the church.Kristin and her dad just before he escorted her down the aisle.We had a little extra time after the ceremony so we took full advantage!Is it just me who thinks this is funny!?This guy was trying out to be one of my second photographers. Needless to say, he failed miserably!

I guess it’s becoming obvious just how far behind I am with blogging, as this and the last post feature some fall leaves in them! I have 4 more weddings to blog and I will be all caught up. On account of a really busy fall shooting schedule, preparing myself for my Mystic 6 presentation, and being in the middle of selling my house (don’t worry I’m staying in NJ) and a bunch of other things as well, I have not been able to catch much of a breath lately. But I’m getting there! So, I just want to say thank you to all of my clients who have been SO patient with me, I really appreciate it! Once I figure out where exactly in NJ I will be moving to, I will be looking to hire an office manager to help with the work load around here.

Ok wait, wasn’t this post titled Melissa + Jamie?! Sorry guys, I just had to get that off my chest. I had a great time hanging out with Melissa and Jamie for their engagement session. They were up for anything and were real troopers, especially during the leaf photo session! When we met up the sun was already getting close to being down so it made it a little challenging as most of their session took place after dark. At one point I was fumbling around in the dark, trying to use my iPhone as a flashlight and accidentally dropped it down a hole! It was a little scary, but it was eventually retrieved. Thanks for the laughs guys, see you in a few months at the wedding!

By now you have probably caught on to the fact that ALL of my clients are amazing and have awesome weddings right!? Don’t blame me for being repetitive, blame THEM! Yes, Cindy and Chris are wonderful people and had a really great wedding with tons of emotion and fun abound. So, instead of gushing, I want to relay one of the funniest things I have heard at a wedding in a long time. So, I get to the church and have a few words with Cindy and Chris’ officiant, who was wearing all white, had white hair, wore glasses, had some wrinkles on his face, and a white beard to boot. Well, the little ring barer walks up to him and very bluntly says “Hi God”! Keep this in mind when you get to the ceremony shots. Congratulations Cindy and Chris!

I was very excited to meet up with Keri and Tom at Liberty State Park for their engagement session. Before we walked around the front, Keri’s grandfather took us out on his boat where we cruised over to the Statue of Liberty area. It was great being able to get some different vantage points than I am used to, but man, it was a little challenging photographing on a rocking boat! Afterward, we hit the water front area where we had an AMAZING sunset!

I couldn’t mention an AMAZING sunset and then not have it be the first photo could I?I tried to work Keri and Tom into this shot somehow but it just wasn’t working, so here it is, sans Keri and Tom.

I love Lauren and Marcus! I’m not sure there is much more to say, I mean just look at these photos, just try and not love them too, go ahead, I dare ya! I think I’ve already written too much, why are you still here, start scrolling people!
