It was a bit rainy on Brianna and Arnaldo’s special day but it stopped at just the right time to get some pictures on the Asbury Park boardwalk before their reception at The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel and after their ceremony at Holy Cross church in Rumson…it was wonderful working with Julia Wagner again!

This was the first newborn session I have photographed in the garden at my farmhouse and I could not have chosen a more perfect subject than this beautiful little lady who is the first born child of my former bride, Erin and her love, Kenny…Erin’s family holds a very special place in my heart as I have photographed all the girl’s weddings, family portraits and babies and they are just the most perfect representation of what family is… Maeve fits right in to this fantastic group of people…her name means “she who brings great joy” or “she who intoxicates” and boy does she ever!  She was content listening to the pond water and the birds, very chill like every other member of her family…she was curious and went with the flow for all of it…and boy is she just PRETTY like her mom and aunts and grandmothers…I am so lucky to be able to continue to tell this family’s story and watch them grow…

Jenna & Paul

When Jenna asked me to photograph her June wedding, I was absolutely thrilled!  I had photographed her twin sister, Jillian’s wedding, a few years ago and since then Jillian’s family portrait with her husband & son…this is a great family so I was really excited to share and document another special event with/for them…it was a HOT and steamy day but unlike the rest of that week, the rain held out for their Mt. Carmel ceremony and fantastic reception at the brides parents, Joanne & Jim, home on the lake in W. Allenhurst…Jenna looked stunning in her Ti Adora by Allison Webb designed gown next to her handsome groom, Paul, who donned a blue Michael Duru suit as he pulled up in his vintage blue the garden created beautiful arrangements and decor throughout the indoor/outdoor event and the cakes, one was a traditional Norwegian cake created by Jenna’s  grandmother and a more traditional one, provided by Caputos bakery   Additional credits:
