Thank you for reading today’s blog about Long Beach Island Wedding at the Sea Shell Resort in Beach Haven!

I don’t even know where to begin with this Long Beach Island wedding blog!  Jess and Chris were a DREAM to work with.  Jess (and Chris but mostly Jess!) laughed, and laughed and laughed some more all day.  Usually with weddings I only showcase the best, the perfect. Today I decided to do something different with this fun couple.  I wanted to include some of the behind the scenes images because I feel the newlyweds have an honest appreciation for life and the ability to laugh at imperfection.  The wedding day itself was perfection.  A stunning gown.  Beautiful couple.  Stellar florals.  Epic food and atmosphere by the Shell. What was funny and maybe not perfect:  me moving a grill, a stray cat on the bride’s dress while rockstar second shooter Kathleen demonstrates a dip kiss, a champagne pop filled with laughter then went slightly off.

These are the realities that love and a perfect day are built upon.  These are the moments that create our lives.  I can’t imagine most couples would love these images but I know Jess will love them and that is what matters.  Creating documentation that brings my client back to their wedding day.  Relationships are built on more then the perfect moments, they are built on the things that happen behind the scenes and how we handle them. Jess and Chris handled every curve ball thrown at them with laughter,  from rain the second we stepped outside to the stray cat on the bride’s gown.  The couple laughed and was not stressed by anything.  I value and respect the relationship I  saw in all of those real moments and I look forward to seeing where their journey takes them.

Thank you for reading today’s blog about a Jersey Shore beach wedding Sea Shell Resort Beach Haven!

On Sunday June 11, 2017 Kayla and Bruce said “I do” with their toes in the sand, surrounded by family and friends at the Sea Shell Resort in Beach Haven. Kayla wore a stunning gown that combined a classy and beachy vibe with perfection.  The gown had a lace overlay and a simple rhinestone belt.  The groom wore a khaki suit with a pop of their wedding color teal in his tie.  The couple started their day with a first look and portraits at some of my favorite spots around Beach Haven.  The skies were a bright and beautiful blue for the couples ceremony.  The guests enjoyed an amazing cocktail hour outdoors and then moved the party indoors to continue the celebration!

Mr & Mrs Demonte – I hope everyday is as beautiful as your first day together!

Thank you for reading today’s blog about Greenbriar Wedding Photos in Waretown NJ!

This blog is going to be different from my usual blog about weddings because this beautiful bride is my cousin Brianna!  She and Peter had an amazing June wedding at Greenbriar in Waretown with catering by Touch of Elegance. The entire day from start to finish was absolute perfection.  The sun was shining, the flowers beautiful, the guests amazing (I may be biased since it was all family and friends!) and my cousin married her perfect guy.  That checks every box on my list for a perfect day!

Brianna wore a beautiful gown with a sash from David’s Bridal. The bridal party wore a bright and vibrant cobalt blue and shades of gray.  The florals for the day were provided by my personal favorite florist – Reynolds!  The white flowers with touches of succulents and dusty miller were stunning.  The day started at the new Mainland hotel and wedding venue and moved along to the outdoor ceremony space and beautiful ball room reception at the Greenbriar.  Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour outside and danced the night away in the beautiful ballroom.

To the new Mr & Mrs G, I hope your wedding day was everything you dreamed of and that each day after gets better and better.  #kidnightforlife

Friday night was PERFECT weather with a beautiful couple!  Jen and Jared had their wedding at the beautiful Sea Shell Resort in Beach Haven on LBI.  They chose bright, vibrant and colorful flowers from Lilly in the Valley florist, also in Beach Haven.  Jen wore a light and textured gown by David’s bridal and Jared opted for a casual look with with no jacket.  The bride and groom made the decision to keep their day stress free and intimate and decided not to have a bridal party.

The day started with ease.  Jen and her mom got ready together while guests enjoyed the weather, drinks, beach and pool at the Sea Shell Resort in Beach Haven.  After Jen was fully dressed in her simple but elegant gown and jewlery from Etsy, we made our way around town for some portraits of the bride and her mother. We stopped at one of my favorite locations with bright blue shutters to compliment the rich and vibrant floral bouquet the bride carried.

Perfect blue skies turned yellow and orange during sunset and then into the perfect, pink, strawberry moon. We were able to get photos each phase of the sky that day and they were all stunning! Guests enjoyed amazing food and drinks from the Sea Shell and ended the evening with a beautiful dessert bar, complete with cupcakes that looked like ice cream cones from a Sweet Memory bakery.

Mr & Mrs Lynch – I hope every day together is as perfect as your wedding day!

Thank you for reading today’s blog about Harvey Cedars family portraits!

On Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of the LBI summer season, the Hanish family hired me to do their beach portraits.  It was their parents 50th wedding anniversary and the entire family was on Long Beach Island for a long weekend.  The weather hasn’t been the greatest here for the holiday weekend, but it held out for our session.  I love how you can see in the photos the way the light changed during our time together.  It started warm and golden with darker clouds behind them and went to bright and light as the sun made it’s way down over the bay.  After our session, on my way home, I missed the height of the sunset but I was able to grab an image of it’s aftermath, and it was beautiful!

Our session included images of the entire family, siblings, individuals of the children, the smaller family units and the couples together.  I like spending time documenting each dynamic within the large family group.  I think it’s important to showcase all aspects of the family to help round out a session.  I love that they brought their parents wedding portrait from fifty years ago.  We were able to work it into the images in a few different ways during the session.  The family opted to wear shades of white, ivory and khaki and all looked amazing! The Hanish family was wonderful to work with.  I hope their next fifty years are even more beautiful!
