New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Clarks Landing Yacht Club | Erin + Scott

Wedding

You couldn’t have asked for a much more beautiful day than what we had for Erin and Scott’s wedding. I completely lucked out with these two for both their spectacular Art Museum engagement session and then their New Jersey wedding.

My time began with Erin and the ladies at her parents’ house in Vorhees. You can tell that her family is close. Their interactions just exuded love. We allotted plenty of time for her beautiful lace-up Maggie Sottero gown.

I really love it when I get to photograph brides and grooms in their homes where they grew up. It makes the family connection that much stronger.

Scott was getting ready with the guys at his place not too far away.

Their Catholic wedding ceremony was held at St. Joan of Arc Church in Marlton, New Jersey. This was my first time at the church and I just loooved the stained glass windows there.

The bridal party checked out a local park before the cocktail hour kicked off. The day really couldn’t have been any more glorious.

The reception was held at the Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran (formerly the Castle Yacht Club). The place had been completely revamped. The main ballroom was huge and airy with enormous windows looking out onto the docks and water and giving the perfect view of the sunset over the boats.

The newlyweds entered into quite the ruckus and shared their first dance to “Amazed” by Lonestar.

The speeches by Erin’s college friend (and fellow field hockey player), Rachel, and Scott’s brother, Matt, were fantastic. Matt asked the crowd to vote with applause on who would win in a race between Erin and Scott. When he offered up Scott, there were crickets. Not even his own parents clapped for him. When it came to Erin, the room exploded.

I snuck them out to docks for the last few minutes of golden hour.

I’m totally digging the dessert and popcorn display they had for guests at the end of the night.

Philadelphia Bridal Show: 3/28 at Sofitel Hotel Be there!
I don't do very many bridal shows. I love meeting 100s of brides face to face but it hard to find the time and energy to do it. And let me tell you that I take my shows quite seriously. If you've been to one, you'll know that I come prepared with a room. Yes, a room. Walls and sofa and all! I guarantee that you won't see anything else like it there. I want you to be able to sit down, take a load off, peruse some albums, and feel relaxed to ask any questions at all.Tomorrow is my second and last bridal show of the spring. You should absolutely come out if you want to check out some hot bridal fashions at the fashion show or take ...

Rachael + Dan: Catholic Wedding at the Jersey Shore
I had so missed beach weddings. Northern California has their vineyards but the east coast has lovely beaches within reach. Take Dan and Rachael's wedding, for example. I headed down to the Jersey shore in the fall for a truly beautiful union between these two. Dan and Rachael are awesome. They just have fun together. It's so obvious. They looks, the quips, the everything. They were a fantastic couple to photograph. It wasn't until that day that I realized I actually went to grade school with the groom. What a small world!This wedding was the perfect combination of playful and preppy. I loved the navy blue silk bridesmaid dresses wi ...

Montgomery County Wedding Photographer | Quarry Hill Farm | Carla + Ben
I learned a new word at Carla and Ben’s wedding: schvitz. It’s a Yiddish verb meaning ‘sweat’ and we all did a lot of it on that 100+ heat index day. As Ben’s eternally happy sister proclaimed, “it’s in to be schvitzy”. As hot as it was, the wedding was beautiful! It was held at up and coming Quarry Hill Farm in Harleysville, PA and was everything Carla had imagined: fresh, organic, local, and spectacular! As a couple who met while gardening, there couldn’t have been a more perfect place.The couple looked great while they were prepping themselves to see each other that day.We were able to spend a little bit of time walking arou ...
