The Hotel Indigo NJ Wedding – B&W Wedding Photos – Tiffany + Bryce

Last week, we had the pleasure and honored of shooting another wedding for the Shamy Family. This time, is was Tiffany’s time. She had met her prince charming, Bryce, and was about to have her dream wedding, which she had been planning for twenty six years.

Tiffany expressed how important her wedding pictures are and was looking for photojournalistic wedding pictures with a little bit of New York flare. At the same time, she had basically memorized almost all pictures she had ever seen on a magazine. So here, I had to be extra careful to find the balance of getting her dream pictures, while capturing the unscripted moments.

TIffany and Bryce’s wedding theme was black and white, so for this blog, I did something I have never done before and that is to post only Black and White pictures to accomplish the New York photojournalistic style she was looking for. Note: All their pictures are in color, but for this post, I edited them in BW.

Tiffany and Bryce chose the Hotel Indigo, which is a boutique hotel in New Jersey that looks like it was taken out of Tribeca or Soho.

The Brownstone Wedding Photos | Courtney + Michael Wedding Photos

Courtney and Michael met through e-harmony. They arranged for a first date. Courtney is a hair stylist, and he would pick her up after work. But he had an exit strategy though. He planned to take a look and leave if he didn’t like what he saw, and as it turned out, he not simply loved what he saw, he knew She was the one.

Courtney and Michael are one of the most amazing couples we have worked with. Earlier this year, we headed to the shore to take their jersey shore engagement photography session, and they were a blast. On a perfect fall day, this wonderful couple married at the Brownstone in New Jersey, and they picked the most special date of the year to tie the knot 10/10/10. I was really looking forward for this wedding, and we were thrilled and honored to have been there to document your wedding day.

Wedding Boutoniere: Freesias – Photo of the week

The week when I discovered the freesias. This week, I was doing a styled photo shoot for a Royalty Floral Design, and Black Tie White Veil. The goal was to do three different set ups: fall, winter and holidays floral arrangements. So we talked about concepts, set-ups, themes, and of course flowers. When Nila from BTWV suggested freesias, noting really came to mind because I was not familiar with them. So when I arrived for the shooting, I was amazed by the smell of these gorgeous flowers.

Freesias are perennial garden flowers that come in a variety of colors, being white the most common one. They are often used in wedding bouquets and groom’s boutonniere. But the true beauty of this delicate flower is in its wonderful scent.

When I first saw this boutonniere, I thought it was beautiful and delicate, but once I smelled it, freesias became one of my favorite flowers. That’s why I chose this bridal’s groom boutonniere made of freesias as My photo of the week because as I look at the picture, I close my eyes and remember its wonderful fragrance.

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.
