New Jersey Wedding Photographer | McLoone’s Pier House | Jessica + Camren

Wedding

It’s like complete comfort with these two. There’s something about their interactions that makes it seem like they’ve found the perfect fit in one another. The world spins around them but they make faces at each other and play together and it’s the way love should be. Jess lights up around Cam and he can put her in stitches. I love it. 

They were married in Long Branch, New Jersey on the shore behind McLoone’s Pier House. Everyone got ready at Ocean Place Hotel, within walking distance to the venue. A small tie snafu that morning was remedied without too much stress. The day was overcast but it was gorgeous conditions for photography – no harsh shadows and colors that just popped! Just check out the bridesmaids’ calla lily bouquets.

The Tiffany’s earrings were a gift from her mom the day of the wedding.

Jessica’s ‘something blue’ was a handkerchief her great grandmother had given to her mother on her wedding day.

The ceremony site was beautiful. Ailes were lines with bamboo and starfish and a guitarist serenaded guests and the bridal party before Jessica walked down the aisle.

And this is exactly what I mean about Jess and Cam! This was his first time seeing her. They learned just a few days before the wedding that they would need to memorize and recite their vows to one another.

I first met Jess and Cam at Matt & Julia’s wedding. After that wedding, there was no doubt in my mind that this crowd would be a blast.

We shooed away the bridal party and practically had the beach to ourselves.

They danced their first dance to First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes. Cam held his cool throughout the ceremony but dancing with Jessica to that song hit home for him. It was fabulous. I love the moms embracing in the background.

And I wouldn’t recommend messing with rugby players. There was a University of Delaware guys vs. girls rugby scrum that went down in the middle of the reception. For real.

It was a beautiful and emotional and fun wedding. Just fabulous. Had I not needed to go home that night, I would have easily partied on into the wee hours with them. Jess and Cam, congratulations!

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

Anna + Bill: Wedding in Calistoga at the private Black Swan Lake
Oh. My. God. You should have seen Anna and Bill's wedding - it was absolutely stunning! I went up to Northern CA with Lisa of Lisa Leigh Photography to be the second shooter at one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. This is the stuff for magazines. As I've said before, I try to take advantage of as many shooting opportunities as possible and I'm glad I went along with Lisa for this one.First of all, all eight (yes, eight) bridesmaids were beautiful. They wore flowy Vera Wang dresses in a light celadon (minty-green) with a bubble hem tied at the waist with a black velvet sash. The bride wore a strapless off-white gown with ...

Delaware County Wedding Photographer | Gables at Chadds Ford | Oz-inspired Styled Shoot
It’s not every day that I get to show up in a faraway land and just play with colors, textures, and some of the most amazing people in the wedding industry (actually, it happens more than is probably fair!).I was chatting with Sarah of Juniper & Dash late last year and came up with the idea for a beautiful styled wedding shoot inspired by Disney’s new Oz: the Great and Powerful. We led with an emerald green (oh yes, this was before Pantone came out with their color of the year) with accents of glistening gold and poppy red.We gathered a great and powerful team and created a magical shoot that sparkles with details and beauty. The talent ...
