Multiple Exposures

Hannah + David // Maritime Parc, Jersey City

These two might look familiar to you. It's because I did their engagement shoot only about two months ago. If you are looking for a refresh click HERE.

So fast forward two months and we are at the very scenic Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ. It's about 25ºF and winds are an easy 30mph.

I think it's pretty important to add how much these two valued photography. They may look warm an cozy but this may have been the coldest, windiest day of the year. I never try to push anyone into doing photos especially in these conditions, but Photography was so important to these two that they did whatever it took to get what we needed.  This says a lot; especially to anyone who may read this and who is looking for a photographer for their wedding day. Your photos will always be a reflection of you, and if you are awesome, your wedding photos will be too. ( I'm pretty lucky because all of my clients are awesome.) I love how hard these two worked to get what they want, and this is what inspires me to do what I do.

Lindsay + Jess // Island Heights Yacht Club

I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I just want you to see these pictures.

Lindsay and Jess are both artists, one of these two is even a photographer! It always feels good when another photographer wants you to be the one to photograph their wedding.

These two worked so hard to reach the level of perfection they desired so when the big day finally came, they wanted it to be relaxed as possible. This allowed for some awesome photography ;-)

I was so impressed by Jess's painting of the map that would take us all over the entire town of Island Heights, New Jersey. These two also chose this map as their save the dates. Lindsay designed her own gorgeous bouquet as well as all of the flowers. This is when I realized what a unique experience I was in for.  The handmade and handpicked details were only the tip of the iceberg!

Lindsay and Jess chose the place they had their first kiss for their first look, which is incredibly romantic. I also stepped in dog dookie, but I wasn't mad. I cleaned my boots and the three of us wandered the town and hit up some secret spots for portraits.

The Ceremony took place on the dock of the Island Heights Yacht Club where Jess spent a lot of time growing up.  The rings made it safely onto their fingers instead of through the cracks of the dock. ( This was the running joke between Jess, Lindsay, and her uncle who was also the officiant) the laughs were complemented by some tears.  After the ceremony, the dock was cleared for a lax cocktail hour and some good times.

With this day being all about Jess and Lindsay,  Mikey Junior and his band where the stars of the reception. They killed it all night with blues rhythms and ridiculous harmonics. This along with some dancing and drinking went on for hours, which inevitably required everyone to refuel. Dinner was hosted by L Gourmet and after some good eats, Mikey Junior hit it even harder with some tunes that had everyone back at it with more hours dancing and drinking.

For you the story ends here, but for Jess and Lindsay it keeps on going forever. Congratulations to this perfect pair.
