About Joyce and Sebastian’s wedding day held at Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran, New Jersey

The happy couple started off their day getting ready at Springhill Suites in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. Here I started photographing bridal details such as the wedding dress, jewelry and accessories, shoes and other cute items that Joyce and her bridesmaids had so generously gathered for me. After finishing with details, I hopped right into documenting the girls doing their hair and makeup. Sebastian and his boys were right down the hall in another separate suite, which made it incredibly easy for me to bounce back and forth between rooms in order to get all the coverage I needed.

Every time I document the start of a wedding day, I always make sure to stay silent and unobtrusive. This allows the women to feel at ease with my presence and to relax and be themselves. I want your natural personalities to shine through in your photographs and staying out of the way and hidden is a perfect way to accomplish this. After we finished with the getting ready portion of their wedding day, we all hopped in our cars and headed straight to St. Casimir Church in Riverside, New Jersey.

I always leave the hotel a bit really so I can arrive at church in time to setup my photography gear and capture the bride coming out of her limo. Normally the bride is accompanied by her father into the church. This is a very nice little moment that no photographer should miss. Upon the guests arriving, I always photograph lots of reactions. This is the first time of the day that family members will be seeing each other and these kinds of photos always make for some nice emotion. The bride and groom’s wedding ceremony went off without even the slightest issue. After the church service was finished we quickly started with family group photographs. Once we finished with all the photos we had on our list, the couple and their families went for a short break before we all headed to Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran, New Jersey.

Once we arrived at the Clarks Landing wedding venue, we started with creative photographs of the bride and groom. I took the happy couple around the property and quickly and easily captured a ton of really great photographs. On a wedding day, you want to be as efficient as you possibly can be. Shoot each pose/scenario with purpose and waste no time with complicated lighting setups that yield less than stellar results. After the bride and groom were fully satisfied, I completed some really fun bridal party group photos before we all headed back inside for a special Chinese Tea Ceremony.

This tea ceremony yielded a ton of really great emotional moments. I was able to easily capture photo after photo of family members presenting the bride and groom with intimate, special gifts. I love real moments like this at a wedding day where the bride, groom and their family members let their guards down and allow themselves to be emotional with one and other. I have to admit it brings a tear to my eye when I watch moment’s like these.

After their tea ceremony was complete, cocktail hour began. During this hour, I quickly photographed the ballroom , any and all remaining details and setup my photography gear before their reception began. Their party was an absolute blast. First dances, speeches and toasts all went perfectly. The DJ did a great job and kept the crowd really dancing all night long. At the end of their evening Sebastian and Joyce took part in a wonderful little new tradition called The Shoe Game. The couple is asked random questions about their relationship and depending upon their answers, they hold up either the left or right shoe. One for the bride answer and one for the groom answer. This game really makes for some hilarious outcomes.

At the end of their reception I thanked the bride and groom for allowing me the pleasure and honor of documenting their wedding day. I also make sure to congratulate the parents and say thank you to them as well. Overall, Joyce & Sebastian’s wedding day was a great success. I wish the happy couple nothing but health, happiness and many years of love.
