Noelle and Marshall were married at the stunning Monmouth Beach Bath and Tennis Club in Monmouth Beach, NJ. It’s very rare that I do not meet a couple before the wedding, but this was one of those cases. Noelle booked me over the phone several months before their day, after viewing Dana and Brian’s wedding on Facebook. We chatted a few times on the phone, but I truly didn’t know what to expect when I arrived in Monmouth to shoot their wedding. Boy, was I overwhelmed with eye candy! The more I talked to Noelle on the day, the more I realized just how hard she worked on the elements and overall style of their wedding day. It’s safe to say that she completely succeeded in pulling off a truly inspirational DIY wedding. Everything was just beautiful! Best wishes to Marshall and Noelle!

It’s been some time since I reminded my readers about the awesomeness that is Brooklyn Betrothed! Words can’t express how honored I am to be a co-founder of such an amazing wedding collective. Don’t forget to check in with the blog every now and again, for honest tips and inside information on wedding planning from a group of talented, Brooklyn-based wedding professionals. This month we’ve been focusing on destination weddings, in hopes of warming our readers up a bit during these frigid winter days! Today on the blog, I wrote a bit about choosing a wedding photographer for your destination wedding. Check it out here: Choosing A Destination Wedding Photographer.
Towards the end of last year, I met up with Jennifer and Mike in downtown Morristown, NJ for their engagement session. Again, it was one of those unseasonably warm (but windy!) days. I had so much fun wandering around with the two of them, getting to know one another. While it seems like they booked me ages ago, I’m excited that their June wedding is quickly approaching us! I can’t wait to capture their day and spend more time with the two of them – I am certain it is going to be a wonderful time.
I’m really excited about tonight’s premiere of Alcatraz, dorky? Maybe. In late October I took a trip to San Francisco to visit some friends and catch my breath mid-wedding season. I had such a fantastic time exploring the city, but by far the best thing I did was a night tour of Alcatraz. It’s going to sound crazy, but I went to San Francisco without my camera. I traveled so much for work last year that I wanted this to be a vacation where I wasn’t getting held up at the airport so they could swab my bag in security or just lugging a backpack filled with gear! I did, however have my iPhone, so expect a few iPhone posts on San Francisco. For today though, in honor of Alcatraz’s premier, I bring you these. Happy Monday!
I’m so excited to bring you Lyndsey and Jon’s engagement shoot. We lucked out with one of those unseasonably warm winter days with pretty gorgeous lighting! It was my first time shooting at Liberty State Park and I loved it. Lyndsey and Jonathan were so easygoing and fun to work with – I can’t wait to shoot their wedding (on my birthday!) this March at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ. Congratulations guys!
This past weekend was the Lovesick Expo at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. It was a total honor to exhibit along side of a select group of talented and unique wedding vendors – I can’t wait to share more about it.
At the expo I displayed a few of my new products for 2012, but this interactive guestbook was such a huge hit that I knew I had to share it on the blog. The book is 10×10″, 30 pages and completely customizable with images from your engagement shoot as well as questions for your wedding guests to answer on your big day. It makes a truly unique keepsake from your wedding day!
Come meet me at this year’s Lovesick Expo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!
