Not every wedding has a hundred guests. Elopements are all the rage. With brides becoming more selective with what they want from their wedding day,

For Tina, she wanted something smaller in terms of family and friends. By having a more intimate wedding, Tina is now able to splurge on what she really wants, like the church and photographer.

Presence is key. Tina knows her angles. She’s aware and present. At the altar, eyes are on her and she doesn’t forget it. Keith neither. This doesn’t mean she feels insecure or self-conscious if anything she’s working the camera.

In the back of her head shes focused on her posture, her appearance and her hair . She‘s happy and it shows and

Choking her own brothers, I'm sure she wishes sometimes haha.

We stop at their house for a quick picture with the puppy! Awww, of course we had to get him in a couple pictures. He couldn't make it to the church around the corner, so we just stopped on by for this photo before heading to the restaurant.

Skyline was right there behind the couple, it was a little darker because of timing, so keep in mind the sun sets before you know it.

Michele and Robert have been waiting for so long for this day. Longer than most because of Covid. They are happy, excited and anxious about the day but calm and poised in their demeanor.

Michele wanted to shoot in her Mother's childhood home, which is a great option if possible.

The Bride and her father have a first look in the family room. Dad's first response is to cry and hug his daughter. They both tear up and let the moment happen, forgetting the cameras and being present.

Now the Groom's turn to see Michele. Waiting in the winter cold next to a bridge by a park in New Jersey that they love, Michele pulls up in her Escalade, hops out and gives Rob the big reveal!

The Day has only just begun, time to get hitched.

A few vows, burning of the candles, the big kiss and the grand exit are just a few highlights of the ceremony that Michele and Rob and their parents and family, get to look back on.

Family Portraits are always timeless keepsakes. Michele and Rob wanted a professionally lighted and edited image with everyone there. I help to set these up, it's no trouble at all and worth it for everyone involved. It's my honor.

No one's Italian here. That's Amore!

As the drinks keep coming, and the music get louder, the crowd is more inviting to the cameras. This is when we get people at their best, most open and jolliest.

What the Birthday Girl wants, the Birthday Girl gets. For NyNy's 12th birthday shoot, she went and got her hair and make-up professionally done. They showed up with balloons and outfits and a good demeanor and good vibes.

NyNy is feeling fierce. We were rocking to Lizzo and chowing down on donuts and pastries. Without a second thought we wanted to incorporate it in the picture and I think it works here.

She was excited, brought lots of energy and confidence and everything worked as planned. Her green eyes match the green backdrop, this is one of the moneyshots. See what I did there.

NyNy let loose and had fun with her shoot. She didn't overthink, went with the flow and came prepared with props and outfits and poses.
