Suzanne & Tom

Cape May, NJ, Small Wedding, Surprise Wedding, Weddings

Suzanne and Tom are a fun couple. I mean, pulling off a surprise wedding definitely puts you at the top of the list for being a fun couple. The day was gorgeous, extremely windy, but otherwise absolutely perfect for the couple. Somehow the couple was able to not mention a word about the wedding until just hours before! Everyone was very delighted when they found out they were going to be attending a wedding! I loved every moment of this wedding.

Congrats again, Suzanne and Tom!

Colleen & Harry

Cape May, NJ, Peter Shields, Small Wedding, Weddings

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.

Congratulations again, Colleen and Harry!

Jessica & Dave

Cape May, Couples, NJ, Small Wedding, Weddings

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.

I look forward to keeping in touch with them.

Congratulations again, Jessica and Dave!

Amanda & Nick

Cape May, Hotel Alcott, NJ, Weddings

The first wedding of the 2014 season couldn’t have been better! Amanda and Nick wed in the lobby of Hotel Alcott, in historic Cape May, which was also their reception site. The portraits were in and around the hotel, as it was a little too cool and breezy for the beach. Amanda was so beautiful and it was easy to photograph her gorgeous smile, and she smiled a lot around Nick (a good sign!).

Congratulations to Amanda and Nick, and here’s to a great 2014 season!

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.

Congrats again, Kathy & Jeff!

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.

Congratulations, Carolyn & Matt!

– Villas, NJ Wedding Photographer –

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.

Congratulations, Anne & John!

Heather & Justin

Cape May, Fisherman's Memorial - Cape May, NJ, The Grand, Weddings

– Cape May NJ Wedding Photographer –

I love weddings that are easy going and fun, and Heather & Justin had just that! The day was the start of a cool-spell here in Cape May, so it felt great to be outside, and the sky was absolutely perfect- not to bright and not too cloudy. The portraits before the ceremony were taken at the Fisherman’s Memorial in Cape May- one of my favorite spots because it is sort of hidden and more private. The ceremony was held on The Grand’s deck which is always fun and gives a slight urban-feel in an other-wise beach town, I always love it! The reception was held inside The Grand, in the beautiful ballroom. Loved all the details of this wedding for sure!

Congratulations again, Heather & Justin!

Though the skies were threatening, Amy & Chris didn’t let the weather change their plans for their ceremony on Higbee’s Beach (one of my favorite locations), and I am extremely glad they didn’t! The rain held off for the ceremony and the portraits afterward, leaving us plenty of room to play around. Chris and Amy are a fun couple who are up for anything, and their bridal party also! It’s always great to work with people who have a fun time and are up for anything 🙂

Congrats again, Amy & Chris!

Laurie & Keith

Cape May, Cape May Harbor, NJ, Small Wedding, The Chalfonte, West Cape May

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.

Congrats, Laurie & Keith!

Lisa & David

Cape May, Grant St. beach, Hotel Alcott, NJ, Small Wedding, Weddings

Lisa & David had a very elegant wedding at Grant Street beach and Hotel Alcott in Cape May. I absolutely loved Lisa’s dress. One of the highlights was Lisa’s sister’s toast- a toast about treating your spouse as a dog- it was so funny and so sweet, and one of the best I ever heard! A sweet couple for sure, I wish them the best ahead!
