Morgan & Paul|Hoboken engagement

Morgan & Paul were up bright and early for their Hoboken engagement photos. They were returning to Virginia after a quick visit to their old stomping grounds, so morning worked best. An 8am shoot is not ideal for night owls, but this future-husband-and-wife are definitely morning people… or they did a great job of faking it!

It usually takes time for  people to warm up in front of the camera, but Morgan was ON right from the start…

I couldn’t have asked for a more playful and carefree spirit…

You knew these two had to be Irish, right? Willie McBrides, the place where it all started…

One minute you’re in Hoboken, turn the corner and it’s like you’ve been transported to some European village. Had to visit the little cobblestone street…

Looking forward to seeing you both for the wedding… and can’t wait to see the awesome blue shoes Morgan will be wearing!

Jeremiah & Josiah|Wilmington Delaware childrens photographer

It’s always nice to keep up with former clients as their families grow. I’ve now had the pleasure of photographing Shirley & Roger three times: for their wedding, for the birth of their first son Joshua, and now, after the arrival of their twins Jermiah & Josiah. (Well technically below that’s Josiah & Jeremiah.) Enjoy…

Dad, Roger, loves the giant Garfield cat and we always make sure he makes it into at least one picture…

Josiah was still content to sit still, but Jeremiah, right, was already crawling and on the move…

Joshua, now almost 3 years old, is at that stage where he’s curious about everything… questions, questions, questions…

Congrats to you both!

Brandy & Jeff |Bethany Beach Wedding, Delaware

Brandy & Jeff traveled from Vancouver, British Columbia for their wedding in Bethany Beach. Why?

Well, years ago Jeff’s family was planning a road trip down the east coast and his father wrote requests to a number of towns. (Yes, hand wrote requests.) Bethany Beach was one of the first to respond and its inviting visitors guide and information packet won him over. (Yay for Delaware!) They came, they saw, and they returned… for years. Jeff grew up spending summers in Bethany and when he found the woman he knew he wanted to marry, where did he ask her? Bethany of course.

So it was a natural choice to have their wedding on the beach in Delaware. Enjoy…

Awaiting the bride…

Post-ceremony cocktails…

If any future brides and grooms want to bust out some moves like this during the family formals, please feel free!

We managed to get at least one shot before the waves came in…

 

Brandy & Jeff are a super creative couple and did an amazing job with the wedding styling and invitation design. I especially love the fish net filled with photos of them and their friends and family…

Perfect late afternoon sunlight…

My favorites of the day…

Reception at Northeast Seafood Kitchen…

Hope you’ll continue to enjoy Bethany Beach for years to come… congratulations!

Ty & Walt |Waterfall wedding, Wilmington, DE

I had so much fun with Ty & Walt during their engagement shoot a few months back, I knew the wedding would be great. Here’s a little sneak peek…

Gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress…

Rockford Park in Wilmington for portraits…

This may be my favorite shot of the day…

I know everyone was trying to hold it together, but sometimes you just can’t keep the emotions down. That’s not such a bad thing…

Lot’s of smiles and laughs along with the tears…

And the first dance…

Sharon & Emmanuel |Liberty House wedding, Jersey City, NJ

Here are a few images from a wedding I photographed recently with the very talented Mr. Tyson Trish…

A pregnant bride… woo hoo! The dress was so flattering we had to ask Sharon to accentuate the fact…

Tying the tie, YouTube to the rescue…

The patio at Liberty House made a great location for the first look…

Sharon & Emmanuel met in the yoga community and there were beautiful tributes to their devotion all throughout the wedding day. The wooden sculpture and figures next to the cake… that’s Radha and Krishna, together the embodiment of love and divine joy…
