Aly & Jeff Jakubowski’s Longfellows wedding was an intimate affair, with family and close friends present. Together for 10 years, Aly & Jeff knew they didn’t want a lot of fuss. Rather, they wanted their guests to be out on the dance floor and ripping it up all night long. To ensure that, they had […]

There are not enough words to describe Bri & Mike Santagato’s Mansion Inn wedding this past October!! From the skull embroidered on the back of Bri’s getting ready shirt, to the hinged coffin ring box, to the skeleton couple on their invitations – you get the theme, right? These two were (are) the most down-to-earth, […]

Cathy and Joey Dufkin’s wedding at 90 State in Albany was like a scene out of ‘An Officer and A Gentleman!’ Joey surprised Cathy by wearing his Marine military blues for their church ceremony. The two of them looked so regal in their timeless, elegant finery, there wasn’t a bad picture of them all day […]

Alex Zielinski is quite an anomaly! Normally young men could give a ‘you know what’ when it comes to Senior portraits. Alex made a point to come up to me at a baseball game over the summer and say he wanted to schedule his session with me. Too funny! Alex and our son, Troy, go […]

Three years ago I had the privilege of photographing Lauren and Andy Brown’s wedding. Being asked to photograph Lauren and Andy again – this time with their gorgeous little 1 year old, Landon – well, my ideal wedding couple has turned into my ideal family! Lauren is very organized and had a vision of what […]

Prepping for the Waldorf/Santabarbara Fairways of Halfmoon wedding, I had to keep in mind Beth and Paul were focused on their families most of all. A second marriage for each, their children and Paul’s grandchildren played a huge role in the festivities. A morning brunch wedding, Beth and Paul really wanted all of the photos […]

Vinny’s Senior portrait session in our neighborhood was quick and painless – I thought anyway! Not really wanting to have pics taken, but kind of coerced by his mom, Terri, we moved quickly to get it done. Taking advantage of a bridge connecting our neighborhood to an adjacent development, we got some great shots by […]

Caroline’s recent Senior session was absolutely superb! This young lady smiled the entire time – and not a fake, cheesy grin either. Her eyes sparkled; her smile was genuine; her “smile without showing teeth” awesome. I like to get a small percentage of shots on the ‘kind of serious’ side, but when Caroline’s natural inclination […]

When my niece, Callagh, asked her parents if Aunt Erin could take her Senior portraits in Cape May, how could I refuse?!!! The most glorious spot in Jersey? In August, with the bluest skies and sandiest beaches? “Hell yes,” is what I actually said (as my family can attest to my potty mouth!). Callagh’s mom […]
