I love these two. They are so sweet and really are a friendly couple. I also love that they live close to where I grew up- so I felt an instant connection. And, I love,love,love Sue’s dress! Together they are a relaxed couple and make you stop and enjoy the moments you spend with them. I can’t wait to see them again!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love,love,love intimate weddings. There’s a special feel with intimate weddings and I think that the camera picks that up. It’s the quiet moments, it’s the family and close friends that are very important to the couple, and it’s the portraiture time that photographers love. Colleen and Harry had a very sweet intimate wedding at a rented house in Cape May and then celebrated by having a delicious dinner at Peter Shields Inn. Colleen and Harry are so easy going and fun, it’s hard not to smile around them, especially when they are together.
Jessica and Dave’s wedding was a sweet and beautiful intimate ceremony on Congress Street beach in Cape May. Jessica got ready at Hotel Macomber and the reception was held there as well. The weather was a perfect overcast; not too dark, but no sun to make unsightly shadows or to make it too hot, and there were beautiful patches of blue popping through the clouds here and there. I absolutely loved the color scheme, a beautiful bright turquoise. When I did Jessica and Dave’s engagement photos last year, I had not had the chance to meet their son, Noah, and I was excited to do so at their wedding. I have a daughter close to Noah’s age and Jessica, Dave, and I have connected through comparing and sharing stories about our children. Noah is such a cutie! He knows how to work the camera, and loves every minute of it. It truly was a perfect day for a perfect couple.
Wind, rain, and gray of a three-day storm didn’t ruin Kathy and Jeff’s intimate wedding at the Sunset Pavilion in Cape May. The ceremony was sweet and cozy inside the pavilion and the rain slowed down enough in time for portraits on the beach- and I am so glad they embraced the rainy shots! We also had fun playing around the deck at the Lobster House, which is a favorite spot of many, where they continued on to have dinner.
Have I mentioned that I love fall weddings? I do. Big time. It’s just the right temperature, beaches are not nearly as crowded, and the lighting is perfect. Carolyn and Matt had a stunning day for a ceremony on the beach in Cape May and the portraits went right into sunset which was great. We then headed over to the Inn of Cape May for their reception. Everything was simple and elegant and matched their personalities perfectly- full of joy and love.
I love intimate weddings and this was a very elegant one! Anne & John wanted to keep things simple and family oriented so they rented a house on the Delaware Bay in Villas, NJ just a few blocks from where I live. I was excited when they took my advice on bringing along a few props for some shots, and the props they found were so much fun! It was a nice evening which led to views of the sunset over-looking the bay.
Tori & Brian got married at Tori’s mother’s beach house in Sea Isle- such a perfect spot for this stunning couple. The ceremony was very intimate and I really enjoyed being a part of their day. I absolutely loved Tori’s dress as it photographed so well.
Love overflows between Laurie & Keith, a couple who have known each other since high school (I love these stories!) They decided to keep things intimate with only them as well Laurie’s parents. The intimate wedding was perfect for these two- very romantic, indeed! We then went around Cape May, shooting at locations that meant something to their relationship, and it was nice learning the background for what each spot represented.
What a fun couple Audrey & John are, and their newly blended family is already filed with such love! An intimate beach wedding with the reception at Cape May’s VFW made for the perfect relaxed atmosphere for the fun and relaxed couple. Congratulations again, Audrey & John!
Another gorgeous day for a beach wedding as Diana & Kurt celebrated their new marriage with their boys. A perfect intimate wedding and very family oriented, it was a very relaxing atmosphere. The boys, besides being handsome, were also such great sports with all the photos. Congrats again, Diana & Kurt!
Saturday was the perfect start to the wedding season: warm, sunny, skies blue as can be, and flowers in bloom! Jennifer and Keith had a great intimate wedding at Southern Mansion in Cape May, and everything tied together just beautifully!
