New Jersey Shore Engagement Photo – Photo of the Week

When I first talked to Mike and Courtney about their engagement session, Mike asked if he had to wear a long sleeve shirt to cover his tattoos. Quite the contrary, since the tattoos are part who he is, I decided to showcase them in a couple of pictures, this being one of them. Courtney is so beautiful, and she has stunning skin and eyes, so I was really looking for a way to accentuate these features. With these among other things in mind, we started their engagement pictures, and as I was about to take this picture, Courtney gently kissed Mike’s arms, totally unscripted, and I knew I was in front of magic. Everything that I was looking in one picture: without seeing Mike’s face, we see him through this tattoos, which are juxtaposed wit her porcelain skin, and those eyes say nothing less than I LOVE YOU. Thanks Courtney and Mike for being so great.

Mike and Courtney will be married this October at the Brownstone in New Jersey.

Featured in The New York Times : A park in Weehawken, NJ – Photo of the Week

We are thrilled to announced that our picture “A park in Weehawken, NJ” was featured on the New York Times.

Yesterday, NY Times requested submissions of 2010 heat wave pictures. Danny and myself headed outside with the 103º heat, snapped a few pictures and submitted them. In my wildest dream could I have thought The New York Times was going to publish one of our pictures on the Front Page of their online early edition. So My Photo of the week is none other than “A park in Weehawken, NJ,” featured on the NY Times.

Gaby and Danny Portrait Session Outtakes – My Photo of the week

For weeks and weeks, months and months, years and years, I’ve known Danny and myself needed to take some portraits. But I have thought of every imaginable and legitimate excuse -I’m pregnant, fat, need a new hair cut, or hair color, need a pedicure, manicure, don’t like the way I look on pictures, did I say I’m fat?- to postpone this long overdue session.

So if you haven’t guessed already, yes, I don’t feel comfortable in front of the camera. Or to better phrase it, I don’t like the way I look on pictures. Every single year for as far as I can remember, my mom made me take a portrait. Raise your chin, tilt your head, and click. Love it or hate it, you only got one shot. I usually hated them, but my mom displayed every single one of those portraits with pride.

Fast forward to this portrait session. Lowered your head, move a bit and DON’T Laugh. Darling the more you tell me not to laugh, the more I laugh, so please take it fast.

So this time, I decided to let my guard down, and chose our outtakes as My Photos of the Week.

New Jersey Shore Wedding Picture – My photo of week

Javier and Tatiana were married on the New Jersey Shore, and they wanted some jersey shore beach photos. Since we only had half and hour for bride and groom, family and bridal party portraits, I had to be quick. Luckily, the timing was perfect to take this backlit photo with the sunset behind the bride and groom. Maybe it’s the technical challenge or the softness it gives to the picture, or a small combination of the two, but backlit wedding pictures are some of my favorite pictures to shoot. So once again, a backlit picture has made it as My Photo of the Week.

The Imperia Sikh Indian Wedding – My photo of the week

Karan and Karishma’s traditional Sikh Indian Wedding at the Imperia in Somerset, New Jersey. As we were waiting for Karan and Karishma’s parents to arrive, the sun was setting behind the bride and groom, so I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take this backlit portrait of the bride and groom. Backlit pictures are some of my favorite shots, so that’s why this is My Photo of week.  I hope you like it.

Summit Arboretum { NJ } Wedding Photos – Marcela and Eric wedding photos

I’ve known Marcela since she was a little girl, and I can’t really express how happy I was seeing her get married. Marcela and Eric planned a small, intimate and romantic summer wedding at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, NJ. Their wedding was beautiful, charming, cheerful and it couldn’t have been more perfect than it was. The Bride and groom decided to see each other before the ceremony, which allowed us more time to walk through The Reeves-Reed Summit Arboretum to take pictures of this gorgeous couple surrounded by the beautiful gardens and park. A private setting was created to make that first time Eric saw Marcela on her wedding dress something really special. The first look was so emotional that it was hard not to cry seeing Marce and her sister, and my dear friend Paola, sobbing.

I love the vintage look of Marcela’s wedding dress by J Crew. The “I Do” detail is sassy.

My photo of the week

My photo of the week

I like to shoot weddings in a wedding photojournalistic way without interfering, and I do that through the ceremony and reception staying vigilant for the unscripted moments. But I also know how important portraits are to my couples, and I have to admit I have so much fun posing them in different kinds of ways, from contemporary and fashionable poses, to romantic and funny situations, to the ones that truly reflect themselves, and that is the biggest compliment when I hear that I really captured them. Capturing details in a fashionable and beautiful way is another tricky process where you can cross the wedding photojournalistic fine line specially if you put an art director’s hat with the hopes the shot can submitted for publication.

While I’m being commissioned to photograph a wedding, and I’m trying to conform with certain standards and rules of photography and magazine styles, I need to keep my artistic sanity, and I do that by making sure that on every wedding I take at least one picture just for me. The following picture inspired me to start a weekly post featuring a photo that I took just for me. This is My photo of the week.

Marcela and Eric got married at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit, New Jersey. Since the house of the arboretum was built in 1889, I decided to take a portrait that gave me that turn of the century look. I posed Marcela and Eric in an unflattering way and asked them to stand side, by side looking directly at the camera, Danny looked at me like saying what are you doing? But again, this picture was just for me. I desaturated the picture enough just to leave hints of color on the background and on her bouquet.

Welcome to our Blog

Welcome to our blog, we are happy that you are stopping by. If you are a prospective client, please feel free to browse through our wedding photography and video gallery.

The Wedding Central offers Wedding Photography and Documentary HD Wedding Videos in an unobtrusive way without interfering with your guests or ceremony. Our goal is to capture your wedding in a storytelling style using a mixed approach of photojournalistic photography and contemporary posed photography and documentary videography.

When photographing a wedding, we are specially looking for three things: people, emotions and details. We want to capture the look on the face of the groom when he sees the bride for the first time, the look on her face as they are reading the vows, and the smile as they walk into the reception hall for the first time as husband and wife.

We also like to capture every wedding detail: wedding dress, shoes, rings, bouquet, veil, flowers, centerpieces, favors and tux because each detail has been carefully selected by the bride and groom after countless hours of flipping through magazines, looking at photographs, browsing wedding sites and visiting vendors. It is through these details that the personalities and the likes of the bride and groom are revealed.

At the end of the day, the collection of those emotions, people and details make your wedding story. That is what we want to capture through our photography and videography. We want to Capture Your Memories.
