Yamean studio's Maternity session

What an amazing way to end the weekend.  I got the opportunity to shoot the maternity session of Natasha from Yamean Studios Films .   I was super excited to shoot this maternity session at Asbury Park.  The weather called for rain in the morning but we were lucky that it cleared out towards the end of the day, bringing out some dramatic skies.  Here are a few highlight shot from the day.

Westmount Country Club wedding | Allison & Andrew

What a fun day to photograph Allison & Andrew's wedding at the Westmount Country Club.  We lucked out by having fantastic weather on the day of their wedding as that was Allison's primary concern.   After prep, we headed over to Jose Tejas in Fairfield, NJ.  This location was news to me as I was under the assumption that NJ had only one Jose Tejas which was in Woodbridge.  

What made the day even more remarbakel was the gorgeous sunset that was behind the as they were ddoing their first dance.

Space NJ Wedding | Nirvani & Carlos

When Nirvani and Carlos came to inquire about their wedding photography I was thrilled to see their energetic charisma.  Once they gave me the green light, I was anxiously waiting for their big day.  And that day finally came this weekend.  The ceremony was held at Deewan banquet hall followed by the reception at Space the following day.  I asked if Nirvani can put some words together on how they met and here's what she wrote.

A girl with a bad attitude and a man who was overly confident met their life partner & best friend minutes after the ball dropped. Our story truly began on NYE 2012, although we were at the same events multiple times for a few years we never acknowledged each other. Two complete opposites managed to connect due to their love, sense of humor, culture and booger collection. Three years later Nirvani found herself engaged to the man she always dreamed of spending her life with, but that came with the baggage of Carlos’ love for Harry Potter. Throughout the years our love and passion for each other grew stronger than either of us could imagine. Five years and counting we continue to teach each other life lessons and can not wait to pass these lessons on to our children, hopefully soon =).  

Below are some pics of how their day went and how wild their reception was.  It was an honor capturing their big day.

The Imperia wedding | Pooja & Riley

Pooja & Riley have know each other for several years in medical school before they even considered dating.  The did however, have many interactions that helped set the stage.  These included a failed attempt to go snowboarding and a day of fun at a nearby amusement park.  It was on their first summer of clinical rotations, in 2012, when they truly began to connect.  First by texts and then through a few days at the beach in New Jersey.   After that time, they grew closer despite long hours and struggles school and life would bring their way.  

Life has presented them many challenges, and each one continues to bring them closer. After less than six months of dating they began to make plans that would eventually land them in the Washington, D.C. area.  Their intern year allowed them Pooja & Riley time to spend more time as a couple.   

Their wedding was absolutely perfect.  I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking.  Enjoy.

The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm | Lucy & Jerry

Lucy & Jerry are such an amazing couple.  It was a hot summer day and things were running right on schedule.  For prep, Lucy & Jerry rented a beautiful villa right near The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.  Their villa had the perfect amenity for this hot summer day, you'll see that in the last image.  Their day could not be any better and their chemistry was truly amazing.  You can just tell how in love they are just by looking at their  pictures.

Antun's wedding photographer | Taimur & Arfa

One thing about South Asian weddings that truly stands out is the Colors.  Taimiur & Arfa's wedding was filled with them.  Not only are they humble, but they make such a sweet couple. Their Mehndi ceremony was held at Antun's in Queens Village. It was such a beautiful day filled with so much joy.
