Chelsea and Roger were recommended by my great friend Cliff Cooper, who photographed their friends wedding in Dominican Republic. Cliff is a talented photographer, so I had big shoes to fill. From the moment, I met Chelsea and Roger, it felt like we had been friends forever. We talked for hours, and I was so happy when they booked us because I could feel that they were a great couple. Chelsea is that girl who you just want to friends with, funny, beautiful and so down to earth and relaxed. Roger is just so kind, and from the very beginning, they trusted us, and welcomed us, which is essential because it allows us to just go in, be part of the day, of their joy, and document those moments that we love so much.
When I have such outgoing and fun couples, and they are having a Catholic ceremony, it can be challenging to balance the formalities of the religious ceremony with their more laid back personalities, but I like the challenge of finding that hidden smile or a private look among so many spectators, while keeping in mind the importance of the religious aspect of their wedding. For their wedding ceremony, they chose Saint Jude Parish in Budd Lake where Chelsea’s family are parishioners, and which means a lot to them. Their wedding reception was at the Westmount Country Club in Northern New Jersey, which is a bit of a drive, but thanks to planning and talking about how the day was going to unfold, and the options for portraits, everything went very smoothly, and we were right on time.
One of the things that many couples don’t know is that I spent days and days looking at their photos, selecting the best moments, and then obsessing over colors, and editing. Sometimes, I work for two weeks on just one wedding, and after so much time looking at them, I feel a connection to them. That is exactly the case, with Chelsea and Roger, they are such a joy to be around, that if I could invent photo sessions just to be around them and photograph them, I would!! I am so excited to share their wedding photos.
Special thanks to our wonderful team, and to Carolina who shot this wedding with me.
