i was super excited to photograph emem & james at the paradise vineyards & gardens in chesterfied…not just because i  had the wonderful jessica morrissy parker with me but because this was a new venue on a beautiful day which incorporated emem’s nigerian roots and culture throughout…i literally could not get enough of the colors and the music and the joy that surrounded this couple…special thank you to jennifer from the ultimate caterer and all of the amazing vendors involved in making this wedding so special!

i knew from my time spent with natasha & mike during their engagement session that they would be fun and they did not disappoint!…rain then the sun then rain then the sun all day for their wedding at the manor in west orange…although they were not able to enjoy their garden wedding as planned we did manage to get most of their photos outside before ceremony and afterwards…natasha loves the camera and the camera loves her!  once the ceremony was complete, she kicked off her 5 inch christian louboutin heels & headed for the glorious light that was filling the fountain and rose garden…steven from MUA and 4evabeauty did a beautiful job with natasha’s hair & makeup and i loved the dripping bouquets from bloomers florist...premiere entertainment kept the dance floor lively and the ceremony was officiated by the groom’s dad, gerry…after dinner, natasha changed into a custom designed and made dress by one of her friends and reentered the dance floor to continue to fun…special thanks to elliot who came in from brooklyn to assist…

there is nothing more gratifying than being able to document the continuing love stories of my couples…seeing them through their engagements, marriages, pregnancies and births is so incredibly special to me and when they are an amazing (much overused word but so appropriate in this case) family as this one it is even more so…another word comes to mind upon meeting meghan & steven’s beautiful baby, liam, DELICIOUS!  i am pretty sure you will see what i mean in this preview…thank you to the ullman/zusack/kopp families for continuing to share your beautiful moments with me…

there are so many beautiful moments in orthodox jewish ceremonies…there is so much tradition and meaning behind every step of the ceremony…i had not met lili & elie until the day of their wedding but from the moment i saw these two together i knew it was something so special…every woman should have a man look at her the way elie looked at lili when they saw each other for the first time and when she walked down the aisle to him…it was breathtaking…
