Lambertville, NJ Engagement Shoot & New Hope, PA

While dating Chris took Alison on a countless number of dates in the Lambertville, New Jersey & New Hope, Pennsylvania areas. So it was the perfect spot for their engagement session. When they told Melanie and I that they wanted to bring their dog Willy along for the shoot we couldn’t say yes fast enough. We are such animal lovers, especially dogs. Willy had a great time walking around with us all over Lambertville and New Hope. I swear she knew she was being photographed and really stole the show haha. We finished their session just before sunset and were able to capture some amazing images and utilizing the best light of the day. Afterwards we all went out for dinner and drinks together at Havanas in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Needless to say Alison & Chris were thrilled with their images and we are so excited to be shooting their wedding on November 22, 2014 at The Lambertville Station Inn.

Towards the end of the day the sunset was absolutely gorgeous! Alison & Chris were so happy how their lambertville, nj engagement shoot turned out.In this image the sun was just about to set completely over the tree line. So I used the sun’s flare to my advantage to capture some very warm emotion from my couple.
During the summer, in front of the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA there are several sets of beautiful lights. Alison & Chris posed in front of them for me just before the sunset.Right in front of the Bucks County Playhouse House was a really pretty set of outdoor lights. I simply placed my couple in front of them and took my photographs with very shallow depth of field. This helped blur my background and create a nice glittery look. Utilizing shallow depth of field also draws your attention to the subject of your photograph, which in this case is Alison and Chris.
Just as the sun set on New Hope, PA the bride and groom share a kiss under the twinkling lights.For the final shot of their Lambertville, NJ engagement shoot I shot up towards the lights as Alison and Chris shared an intimate kiss. Again very shallow depth of field helped to bring your eye towards the couple.

Forsgate Country Club Wedding

Lisa & Rob were married on July 5, 2014 at The Forsgate Country Club in Monroe Township, New Jersey. They were blessed with absolutely perfect weather and clear blue skies. After getting to know Lisa & Rob during their initial consultation, shooting their engagement session and even going out for drinks before their wedding day to go over our plan of attack, I knew their wedding day was going to be a blast. Lisa & Rob’s family and close friends didn’t disappoint. From morning until night their day was the definition of a pure celebration. The night ended with a perfect sparkler photo as Lisa & Rob shared a very public kiss. If you’re having a Forsgate Country Club Wedding, please feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to go over any questions you may have about wedding coverage, wedding pricing or how I document your wedding day.
