Meet Tomyka and UMYK Designz

Over this past year, we have worked on several weddings with Pure Ambiance, a fabulous event planning company, and naturally, after working for some many hours together, we have developed a bond with the girls. Each member of the team has special qualities that make them unique, and memorable.

Early this year, we were photographing a celebrity 18th Birthday party. This party was like no other. Guests were dancing, aerialists hanged from the ceiling, everyone was having a good time, and then from a distance I saw a platter full of cupcakes making its way through the crowd. Enter Tomyka. In a situation, where I would have been, “uhm excuse me” “watch out,” Tomyka was distributing cupcakes with a smile on her face, and dancing to the beat of music, a cupcake never tasted better. Since then, I have enjoyed Tomyka’s contagious laughter, and her great talent for hand crafted details, which we have photographed along the way.

A few months ago, she took a huge step and created her own company UMYK Designz, U stands for unique, and Myk is the nickname her mother, who is no longer with us, gave her.

UMYK Designz focuses on providing high-quality hand crafted services like hand painted aisle runners, gorgeous “Mr. and Mrs” hand painted signs, swarovski crystal cake toppers, and non-wedding related items like, swarovski crystal cell phone and iPad cases, and swarovski crystal shoes.

I mean, if I want to trust someone to design details for my wedding, I want to know they are talented, professional and I can get along with them. Tomyka embodies all three qualities. Good luck my friend on your new business.

Westmount Country Club NJ Ida Giovanni Wedding Photos

Westmount Country Club Wedding Photography – Ida and Giovanni

Ida and Giovanni met many years ago, and when we interviewed them for their Love Story, they had different versions of how they really ended up together. “She has it all wrong,” whispered Giovanni, and with her contagious smile, she would ask: Isn’t that how we met? But one thing, they are both certain, is how much they love each other, so they decided to tie the knot this October, with a beautiful Fall wedding at The Westmount Country Club. Ida comes from a big Italian and very Catholic family, Giovanni is a quiet and confident Peruvian, and their wedding was combination of cultures, tradition and even languages, guests spoke Italian, Spanish, English and Napolitano. Following Catholic tradition, they had a beautiful Catholic Ceremony at their parish of St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Linden, NJ.

But following her sense of fashion and her profession, Ida customized everything for her wedding, bubbles, menus, place cards, even the hanger for her wedding gown.

Philadelphia Indian Wedding Photography

Philadelphia Indian Wedding – Kiran and Ankur Wedding Photos

I’ve been looking forward to Kiran and Ankur’s Wedding for a while now. This couple is so genuinely nice and kind, that you can’t help but fall in love with them. I was also excited to shoot an Indian Wedding. Really, what is not to like about an Indian Wedding; they are colorful, vibrant, full of tradition and details, and boy, they sure know how to party! I was also super excited to photograph my very first wedding in Philadelphia.

The morning of their wedding, I felt butterflies of excitement in my stomach as we traveled to Philadelphia. We started our day at the Double Tree Hotel in Philadelphia where they were both getting ready. Kiran and Ankur married in a traditional Hindu ceremony. As with Hindu tradition, the ceremony is preceded by a Baraat, a procession where the groom is accompanied by his family and friends to meet his soon to be wife. The colors were so vibrant and joy was contagious.

A special thank you goes out to Asiya for second shooting and to Jarlen (third shooter) for assisting Danny and me every step of the way. How can I forget the wonderful staff at the Double Tree Hotel in Philadelphia who were absolutely fantastic. And to my wonderful Bride and Groom for allowing us to document this special day!!

The Palace Somerset NJ Wedding Photographer Rebecca Tommy

The Palace at Somerset New Jersey Wedding – Rebecca and Tommy

If Life gave people medals based on their perseverance, well Life, you owe Tommy a big medal. Tommy had such perseverance, that he asked Rebecca out for three months before she agreed to go out with him. She hesitantly agreed, but he immediately swept her off her feet. They dated for a while, and after a long and romantic walk on the beach, he proposed and she cried. On this beautiful wedding day, Tommy got much more than a medal. He GOT the girl, and what a girl.

Rebecca and Tommy are so in love, and we were thrilled to document their beautiful wedding at The Palace at Somerset Park. It was so refreshing to see them enjoy every single moment of their wedding day.

We started the day at The Palace at Somerset Park in Central New Jersey, where we took pictures of Rebecca and her wonderful group of bridesmaids getting ready. Since we walked in, there was music and laughter. The girls were really having a good time, and some were even dancing. It definitely set the mood for a great wedding day. Since I was shooting solo, I sneaked out a couple of times to take a pictures of the boys being boys. Rebecca and Tommy decided to see each other before the ceremony, in what is known as The First look, and we couldn’t have been more grateful because it gave us much needed time for portraits, which was key since we had one of the largest bridal parties we have photographed.

A big thank you goes out to Kisha and her Pure Ambiance Team for planning and executing a wedding that flowed flawlessly, even when at the very last minute, the outdoor ceremony was moved indoors due to the rain; that’s what a call a Pro, and yes, I’m a spoil now.

In the end, it all worked, and Rebecca and Tommy tied the knot in a beautiful Jewish and Catholic Ceremony inside The Palace Somerset.

Because of time constraints, the ring shoot was actually one of the last shots of the day, and as you can see on the picture to the right, Rebecca’s bouquet still looked perfect.

Ida and Giovanni Engagement Photos in New Brunswick NJ

Ida and Giovanni are one of sweetest couples we’ve met, but then again we consider ourselves extremely lucky because all our clients are awesome. Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ, holds a special place in their hearts, and after many years, they returned for a nice and fun engagement photo session to the place that saw their relationship flourish.

Because of their busy lives, they scheduled their engagement photos for July, and who would have guessed that the worst heat wave of the year would hit us that same week. Regardless of how hot it was out there, they enjoyed themselves and had a great time taking their engagement photos.

Photo of the Week – Love – love – love

I was browsing through wedding pictures for a new video gallery that I’m working on, and I stumbled across this photo. I remember this wedding as it was yesterday. Yassmine had this picture hanging from the wall, and I borrowed it for this picture. It is just to proof that I’m very nosy, and that some phrases par with wedding details can sometimes take a whole different meaning: LOVE – LOVE – LOVE.

Hoboken NJ Engagement Photography : Rebecca and Tommy

Last week, Danny and I headed to Hoboken NJ to take some engagement photos and video for a really nice couple. As I got there, and I started talking to Rebecca and Tommy, I found out that Tommy was not thrilled about the idea of taking pictures. He is seriously in love with Rebecca, and he was going to do anything it took to make her happy. Well, I don’t mind a few pictures, but I don’t like those sessions that go for an hour, he said, and I just smiled.

How was I supposed to tell him that our engagement sessions run for about 90 minutes without making him run to the nearest exit. Well, I did what any honest photographer would do, I didn’t tell him. We just took them for a walk in the park and let them do what they do best, love each other.

NJ Wedding Photographer - Son Cubano Wedding Edgewater NJ

Afternoon Wedding at Son Cubano in Edgewater NJ – Natasha + Edward

It’s not very often that I photograph weddings for two sisters in the same year, but this was one of those special times. I met Natasha at her sister’s wedding on 1/1/11, and even though these two lovely brides were sisters, I knew they were very different. Natasha and Edward wanted a casual and very intimate wedding surrounded only by those really close to them. They opted for an afternoon wedding at the trendy Cuban restaurant, Son Cubano in Edgewater NJ.  The always charming Rev. Jimmy Smith officiated a lovely ceremony by the water.
