Portraits: Family portrait session, Spring Lake, NJ

The setting was a  beautiful late spring evening in Spring Lake, NJ.  A backyard shoot featuring a gorgeous willow tree and lake as backdrops.  Beautiful late-day sun flooding in to help light this amazing family. Couldn't have asked for a better day or clients to work with.

First Wedding of the 2016!

Small preview from our most recent wedding. Embarking on the 2016 season a bit early for NJ; a nice change of pace for this time of year!  However, we got amazing weather! You couldn't ask for a better day and a nicer couple.

He's a little bit rock and roll... and so is she

Shooting weddings for friends are always a highlight for me in this industry. Surrounded by friends as we together wish our friends happiness on the start of their journey together...  we let it all hang out on days like this; especially as we near the end of wedding season here in NJ.

Here's a sneak peak from the day!

Side note: Thank you Fuji for making my favorite lens... the 56mm F1.2 R

It seems that every time I return from a wedding or portrait session and view the images captured I fall in love with this lens all over again... and I shoot with it a lot!  Fuji, if you are listening, I'd love a 23 F1.2 and a 35 F1.2 (or faster) as well!

Tara & Ryan Preview : New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Beautiful day, fun couple, great family and a party full of dancing and happiness for Tara & Ryan. Doesn't get any better. How awesome is my job?

For those interested, the Fuji X-T1 and X-T10 were my primary cameras on the day. Both performed amazingly well.  The two cameras compliment each other quite well.  I also utilized the 16mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, 56mm f/1.2 and 50-140mm f/2.8 lenses.

Next up, a family adventure as summer continues and more weddings!

A day to celebrate

I'm always impressed with the maturity of the young men and woman when I cover Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. The memorization and added responsibilities in the community seem to always be taken with pride and confidence.

This day featured the expected class and fun I've become accustomed to when covering these momentous days for these new young men and woman in their communities.
