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.

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

Delaware Wedding Photographer | Immanuel Episcopal Church | Alexa + Donny
Alexa loooooves herself some bling and she’s not afraid to show it.  She’s a total girly girl and she found herself a country guy – their complimentary personalities were immediately obvious at their Longwood Gardens engagement session last year when she showed up in frills and he in jeans. Their wedding day was fantastic.  The ladies prepped at Alexa’s family’s house in Newark.  There were plenty of personal flourishes like her grandmother’s handkerchief and prayer book (used as her ring pillow) and her special brooch bouquet (with an extra brooch given to her by her mother from her travels). And of course the dress!  This was ...

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 ...
