Stacey + Scott

I must admit, we had a bit of a shaky start to today’s wedding. It was bucketing down with rain in the morning, and when I got to the hotel to meet up with Stacey I learned that her hair dresser was having a, shall we say, off day, and that Stacey would be arriving late! BUT…everything worked out flawlessly in the end. The rain stopped, and Stacey looked gorgeous! Stacey and Scott are a great couple and it was truly my pleasure to be a part of their day. The reception was held at the Hyatt in Morristown, NJ. Congratulations Stacey and Scott! Enjoy the Dominican Republic!


Check out the determination and intensity on Tara’s face while working on the back of her sister’s dress!

This was really sweet. Stacey was reading the card that Scott had sent over for her, which brought tears to her eyes.
Something funny at the church.
Rather than try to hide Stacey and Scott’s heigh difference, I wanted to somehow highlight it.



I love this one!

Scott had seen this shot on another blog entry and requested I do it at his wedding too. Here ya go Scott!

Stacey and her dad had a special surprise first dance, where they changed music and tempo half way through, it was hilarious. Here is the crowds reaction!


Grandma was cutting it up the dance floor!


During the best man’s speech he told us about when he was living with Scott and what happened the first time Stacey came over. He heard a knock on the door, he looked out the peep hole and didn’t see anyone, another knock, and still no one. He told Scott he thought someone was messing with them, but it turns out that it was only Stacey, who wasn’t tall enough to be seen through the peep hole. Well, this photo was inspired by that speech!


Brandi - These are lovely! :)

Tara (Stacey's sister) - Well done! Love them all, but my favorite has to be the one where her face is barely in the picture!

Robin DePaula - BEAUTIFUL images . . .

M&M - What a beautiful union of 2 amazing people. The pictures are absolutely amazing and truly captured such a wonderful day! My favorite shot is of Stacey’s height or lack thereof….where’s the disco booty shot????

Wowzers! What a fun wedding to photograph! I have so many great shots from today that it was hard to pick which ones to blog. Susie and Ken are a super fun couple who are obviously in love. And their bridal party was hilarious too…YAY! Susie and Ken’s reception was held at Mayfair Farms in West Orange. Thank you so much for letting me in on your big day, I had a blast! Congratulations, and enjoy your honeymoon in Aruba!


I told you they were fun! But I won’t tell you why they are laughing though.MY favorite of the day!I should put a book together of bored kids at weddings!I love when they serve communion during the ceremony, because I can almost always get shots like this.They’re even fun during the ceremony!
Nice job Ken!

I thought this was a funny shot. After the ceremony, nature called, but apparently the bridesmaids beat me to it!
How cute are they!?
A little lens flare for my second shooter Lis. YAY!

Susie and Ken’s first dance.

I love good speeches!
Two words… Meat Loaf.

Roy + Peter

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.

zofia - Fantastic work, Todd and Walter!

Naqib (qippy) - cool table shot..how did you capture that..were you on a ladder or something and how about the lighting for it?nice…

Justine MIller - Gorgeous work, lovely wedding and you have some amazing shots. I love the one of him on the couch with his partner in the mirror.. great work!

Krystal Radlinski - Absolutely lovely work! You have perfectly captured the charming personalities and joy of the day. I’m not even a guest and yet I felt as if I were. Brava.

Todd - Thanks Zofia.

Qippy, only Walter knows my trademark secret for getting this shot and he is sworn to secrecy! Just kidding, I mounted my camera to a mono-pod with a 15mm fisheye attached and used a cable release, then just “boomed” it in. The lighting was on camera flash which was bounced in. Thanks.

Justine, thank you, I like that one too!

Krystal, that is the ultimate compliment! Thank you so much.

Arlene Catherine - OMG!!! Love, love, love these! Well Done.

Mae

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!

Mike Levitz - Hey Todd,

Thanks for posting these. I can’t believe you had time to update between our shoot and the evening wedding. We had a great time hanging out with you (or hanging out while you worked!). These pix are amazing; we can’t wait to see more.

From the second Mae saw you, she couldn’t take her eyes off you. You definitely have the magic touch, not to mention great reflexes (you saved her from falling!).

Many many thanks…looking forward to doing it again (maybe her second birthday?)!
Mike

Todd - So glad you enjoyed them Mike. I had lots of fun hanging out/working with you guys too! I actually didn’t have a wedding last night, I’m not a super hero!

I forgot about saving Mae from her almost fall off the couch…hmmm, maybe I AM a Super Hero!

Catalin Alexa - They look lovely! Excelent work!

Janhavi + Chirag

So, if you read my previous entry about my surprise trip to Saint John, you know where I am at the moment. Anyway, on the boat ride over from Saint Thomas to Saint John, we met a really nice Indian couple who were just starting their honeymoon. They had traveled 26 hours from India to get to Saint John! I decided quickly that with this great location, and this great couple, I couldn’t pass up snapping a few photos of them at Caneel Bay Resort. I met up with them after breakfast one morning to take some shots for about an hour or so. Congratulations guys and enjoy the rest of your whirl wind honeymoon, which will also include an Alaskan cruise, Las Vegas, New York, Disney, and maybe more, I couldn’t remember it all! Enjoy!


This was taken in the old Sugar Mill which is on the property of Caneel Bay.

Naqib (qippy) - Looks really great..looks like the beaches here at home..you should really make a trip down here in Malaysia..believe me there are so many places like this..really clear beaches..nice pic btw..love the pic of your daughter by the beach..

ross - absolutely stunning photos. the environment is really beautiful! best of luck to them both.

Saint John

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!

Susan and Zoe relaxing by the water.

Kim - Even though there’s no way I’d squeeze this 39-weeks-pregnant body into a swimming suit right now, I’m totally jealous. Looks amazing!

We miss you back in Jersey, though!!

jeff tisman - damn todd, this certainly beats a family portrait!! ( ha, ha!)

Lauren + Jason

Well, another great wedding today! I feel like a broken record saying that, but it’s true! Do you guys even remember records? And wasn’t it the record player, not the record that was broken? Someone stop me. All records aside, Lauren and Jason had a beautiful wedding today! Everything went so smoothly too, maybe somewhat due to Lauren’s type A personality, I don’t know, I’m just saying! Actually, I only learned of this through Lauren’s sister’s speech at the reception. I thought Lauren was very relaxed and easy going the entire day. Not that type A personalities are uptight and hard to deal with, I’ll just stop there before I get myself into trouble! Congratulations guys and enjoy your honeymoon in Hawaii! Their reception was held at the Molly Pitcher Inn in Red Bank NJ.


I met up with Lauren and her bridesmaids at the Jonathan Salon in Red Bank for a few photosI couldn’t decide which one I liked better….…so I’m posting both! How cute are they!?
After the ceremony, we headed over to Riverside Gardens Park for some photos.We took this one later on at dusk.Lauren and Jason’s first dance together.And Lauren’s first dance with her father.One of my favorites of the day.

andy stenz - the photos of them at dusk are beautiful. the catchlights look big (not bad, just reverse engineering here…) are you using a softbox there?

Onada - Gorgeous gorgeous images!

Todd - Andy, thank you so much. I used a canon 580EX fired into an umbrella, triggered via pocket wizards.

Onada, thanks! :)

jessica m. - Beautiful!! I LOVE the lighting!

corey civetta - Gorgeous work – love your style! That shoe shot is too cool!

Mona - The pictures are BEAUTIFUL! You both look amazing and I love the pictures at dusk too (although the PSU group shot is very awesome as well!) :)
