Paula + Josh's Wedding ~ New Jersey / New York Wedding Photographer

Last month I had the pleasure of second-shooting a wedding with Julia of Amore Vita Photography

Paula and Josh's ceremony and reception were held at The Riviera at Massapequa on Long Island, a  beautiful waterfront venue overlooking The Great South Bay.
An outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour could not have had a nicer setting.

Fun fact: Julia went to high school with Paula and Josh, then moved away to North Carolina
 so the wedding was a bit of a reunion for them :-)

Here are a few images from the day.

Florals By Kerry Patel Designs

Sometimes those impromptu shoots are just as exciting and fun as the ones you have been planning for weeks or months.

I teamed up with Kerry Patel Designs, Jacqueline Cicala Beauty Bridal Atelier and my favorite model-muse Aleksandra for a quick photoshoot to showcase Kerry's beautiful floral arrangements.

After overcoming a couple of obstacles, like a sudden rain storm, and figuring out where to shoot when a park was no longer an option, we ended up at Blowout Salon in Morristown where Jackie was kind enough to let us shoot at their gorgeous courtyard.
And amazingly enough, the storm cleared and the sun was out again.

I guess it was meant to be after all!

The Cabrera Family Maternity Session ~ Sandy Hook ~ New Jersey

It was such a special maternity session.

Miss Lani was my daughter's preschool teacher whom she absolutely adored!
I cannot describe how honored I was to be able to capture such special time in her beautiful family's life.

We met on the beach in Sandy Hook, New Jersey, in the late afternoon
to take advantage of the gorgeous golden hour light. And it was magical!

Congratulations to the sweetest family!
