Thank You

For me the most rewarding thing about being a wedding photographer, aside from the rush of a feeling I get when I know I just nailed an incredible photo, is when our clients are thrilled with the images that we deliver to them and take the time to express their gratitude to us. When they go out of their way to thank us for the way that we’ve made a lasting impact on their lives.

We’re truly humbled to be invited to be a part of such a special day for each and every one of our clients, and we’d like to thank you right back, because your kind words and encouragement is what makes this job the greatest for us.

Another great wedding at the Madison Hotel! Darren and I shoot there often, and we’re always happy to hear that the ceremony will be in the gorgeous Conservatory. Tons of glass, light everywhere… it makes picture-taking become a lot simpler technically, allowing us to really zero in on some emotions of the bride and groom, the bridal party, and the guests. Erik and Colleen really had their act together. They’re both lawyers, and they both have a keen attention for details. They also have great taste in music. Remember those sweet wedding favors? When I got to the hotel to shoot the guys, they were already completely dressed and ready. Unheard of! Usually I show up ┬áto a group of half-awake, half dressed dudes in the middle of a Call of Duty marathon (“Oh yea! That wedding’s in an hour…”), but these guys were sharp. We had a good time taking some photos around the hotel while Darren stayed with the girls at the salon. Colleen and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done at the stunning Salon Botanique in Morristown… and it was so cool inside! We had a little buddah photo scavenger hunt while dodging the lightning fast women armed with hair blowers, brushes, and various sharp objects intended for beautification. erik+colleen0002.jpg erik+colleen0019.jpg erik+colleen0003.jpg Before the ceremony we met up at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum for some portraits. This is always our favorite part of the day, and it’s usually a great time for our couple to be together, in a quiet place, no family or crazy guests (yet), and we always get some amazing images. The slightly cloudy sky was perfect for outside photos so we ate it up. erik+colleen0020.jpg erik+colleen0006.jpg erik+colleen0021.jpg erik+colleen0007.jpg erik+colleen0022.jpg erik+colleen0010.jpg erik+colleen0012.jpg Despite his difficulty seeing out of both eyes, this little guy did a great job carrying the rings down the isle. Love the yellow collar to match Colleen’s shoes. (I told you, details!) IMG_3714.jpg erik+colleen0014.jpg The Reception at the Beautiful Madison Hotel Conservatory

erik+colleen0016.jpg erik+colleen0018.jpg This photo reminds me of a chick flick… When the girl abandons the poorly-groomed but good-natured artist and starts smooching her bad-guy lawyer-type lover right in front of him, leaving him standing with a shocked look on his face and a bouquet in his hands. “WHY!!???” erik+colleen0023.jpg Darren’s a trooper. He was able to hold his own and move (surprisingly fast) all over the hotel with a broken ankle and a cyborg-like boot. I’m not sure he’ll recover as quickly from the barrage of ridicule I gave him throughout the day though… erik+colleen0024.jpg There’s something magical about grassy fields for photographers. We can’t resist. Seriously, if you ever walk past one, look closely and I guarantee you’ll see something like this: test.jpg Erik and Colleen, thank you both so much for inviting us to be part of your incredible day. We wish you all the best on your life together.
