Engagement sessions are a great way for us to get to know you and you to know us. We often go to a location picked by our couples, because it's special to them. Some couples ask for a suggestion for a location. It's really up to you. We can go nearly anywhere you wish.

Uplighting during your reception

January 31, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
With the advancement in lighting technology, many venues include uplighting or your DJ can provide uplighting if your venue does not include it. There is a fine line between being able to see the uplighting in your photos and overpowering your photo with a flash that you cannot see the uplighting or the uplighting "spills onto the dance floor cove...

All about light

January 28, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
Photography is all about light and how we see and use it. Many times we'll be working at a location and "see" an idea or a scene. This particular location was on the Jersey shore. As I was checking out the house, I noticed the door frame leading out to the small deck. The sun was lighting up the deck and the Adirondack chair. Clouds in the sky. I...

Be prepared

Be prepared. You never know what could and probably will happen on any wedding day. Emotions. I love the groom's reaction to something the bride said. I have no idea what she said, however, it must have been classic.

When we're setting up a photo, Lauren will often fix the bride's dress or set the pose. I'll set up the lighting and help with the posing. Many times, while we're going through our process, I catch Lauren in all sorts of photos setting or fixing something. Here are a few of our latest. Sorry, Lauren... A little info on the photo. The...

Unplugged wedddings, Our thoughts.

January 04, 2024  •  Leave a Comment
This is a follow up on the previous post about unplugged weddings. A number of years back we noticed this trend of cellphones and Ipads at weddings. It never really bothered us. We made adjustments and included them in our photo set. By adjustments, one thing was to NOT be at the top of the aisle where most photographers would stand and hav...

Attention to detail, the little things.

December 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Hi I often hear at bridal shows or during a client meeting that a couple likes our work over other photographers, which is excellent. They usually will say that they are not sure exactly what it is, just that they do. I believe I know what it is that they like. It's the attention to detail that we take in our approach to your wedding day photos.

One father was looking over our work and said that our work was the best of the show. I thanked him and we conversed a bit more before he left our display area. Now, I know photography i...

Before and After

December 11, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
I recently helped a friend with a wedding. We were running into a situation where we would miss the sunset. We grabbed a few photos and headed off to the reception. It's amazing what a little editing can do. The original is still a nice image, however, editing can bring out the colors. Cropping can give the image a better look or angle. What do y...
