A few weeks back Glenn and I spent the afternoon with some old friends. I say old friends because we have a bit of a history with Karron and Zim. Karron has been a bridesmaid for two of our previous brides so when it came time to hire her own photographer we were on her short list. We could not have been more thrilled because these two are a joy to be around. We are really stoked to be photographing their two day wedding extravaganza in a few weeks.
Alexa and Dave chose The Cross Estate in Bernardsville for their engagement session. The estate holds a special place in their hearts as it is where Dave proposed. I completely understand why Dave chose this spot, it is spectacular. We spent a few hours wandering the gardens and fields, the whole time learning just how great these two really are.
Glenn and I met up with Roselyn and Sam in NYC for their engagement session. You really could not have asked for a better day or a better couple. They are so completely comfortable with each other. I absolutely love the way Sam makes Roselyn laugh and the way she looks at him. Since I am a bit behind with these posts (as usual), we have already photographed their wedding so stay tuned.
We met up with Suzette & Karl in Jersey City and headed into New York for their engagement session. They met while attending NYU so we spent the afternoon strolling around the NYU Campus. We wrapped things up back in Jersey City with some great views of The Freedom Tower. Stay tuned because their wedding is just a couple weeks away and its looking to be OFF THE HOOK!
Allie and Albert met while attending Monmouth University. So it only made sense to use it’s most impressive building, Wilson Hall, as a backdrop to their engagement session.
Woodrow Wilson Hall was built in 1929 at a cost of $10.5 million as the private residence of former F.W. Woolworth Co. president Hubert Templeton Parson and his wife Maysie. During the campaign of 1916 the mansion was loaned to President Woodrow Wilson as the presidential summer home. It has been known as the Summer White House since.
While the building encompasses some 130 rooms on three main floors, we focused our attention on the Great Hall and gardens. That was fine with us because while difficut to tell from the photos, we spent most of the afternoon dodging the rain drops. The mansion was the setting for the 1982 film version of Annie, but we couldn’t get Allie to wear the red wig.
Thousands in our area were affected by Super-storm Sandy. Even though her winds have passed her effects continue to be felt by many. She messed with us a little bit last week by shutting down Sarah and Erik’s intended engagement session location. Glenn and I were forced to go into problem solver mode. A little quick thinking and some fast-talking by Glenn got us past some police barricades and we were back in business. Often-times when you are forced into the unexpected the results exceed your expectations.

Glenn and I had a great time tooling around Prospect Park with Erin and Matt a few weeks back. We must have walked 10 miles, but we managed to make some great images in the process. Here are some favorites from the day.
We have been having a really dry summer. So we had to take that into consideration when planning Jen and Ken’s engagement session. The first few locations we picked out just were not going to look their best. So when we finally settled on a date and location, wouldn’t ya know it, it poured all day. So we rescheduled and in the end I think it worked out pretty well.
We are in the thick of wedding season now and I am pretty behind (as usual) in my blogging. I met up with Deanna and Karl way back in mid May in Harriman State Park for their engagement session. They selected the summer camp where Karl’s family has a cabin as the backdrop for their photos. I had such a great time walking around the woods them. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in October. Thanks so much guys!
