Bar none. This has to be the coolest most romantic proposal idea. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This image works best in black and white. Guilene and Zagalo are a great couple. Mary and I really enjoyed creating images of their engagement session. Their wedding will be early June.
It’s another busy weekend for us. Susan and Ken’s wedding in the historic town of Nutley New Jersey tomorrow. We end the weekend with Rachel and Rogers engagement session at the Allentown Rose garden.
Going to be a fun filled weekend of shooting !!!
One of my favorite images from Guirlene and Zagalo’s engagement session. Skylands Manor was the perfect backdrop for this couple engagement session. I am not sure what the flower this is but the colors were vibrant.
This picture was taken near the octagonal Garden. A beautiful rock garden surrounding the octagonal pool was designed so that small plants would easily shown and maintained. Of course we had to take a few images to show the octagonal pool..More to come !!!
Anytime you a shooting in an unfamiliar location, this can get interesting. I recommended capturing Guilene and Zalago’s engagement images at Ringwood Manor in New Jersey. Mary and I decided to arrive early and visit
Skylands Manor in New Jersey. If you are not familiar with New Jersey, both locations are about five minutes apart form each other. This was my first trip to Skylands and I as really impressed on how beautiful and ornate the location is. There were even signs posted from a previous wedding. After a few hours of walking around, we headed over to Ringwood Manor. I was disappointed in Rigwood manor as it was in a bit of disrepair. My cell phone rang at 5:00 PM and it turns out Guilene and Zalago’s were in Skylands Manor !!!
I guess we were destined to do their engagement images at Skylands Manor. It was cool and windy but they were such a terrific couple and their love for each other really shows in the images from their engagement session. Hopefully I can post some images tomorrow.
This is one of my favorite images from Stephanie and Davids wedding. Their venue was Hotel 999 in North Brunswick New Jersey. The venue did a great job pulling all of the decorations together and all of the last minute preparations. I am not sure who made the candle center pieces for each table but they were all elegant. I can’t say enough about the DJ. DJ E-ROD really kept the reception going and did a great job as an acting wedding coordinator.
Should you go Traditional or First Look? Something else to consider for your wedding day.
There is an excellent article written on the first look by EverLastDetail and you can read the whole article below:
The big advantage of the first look is” You will have created spectacular images that you can enjoy for the rest of your life”
I believe another advantage is the stress factor. The first look is less stressful for the bride and groom. As a photographer, you can schedule more time for creating those special images for the bride and groom.
A great article by everylastdetail !!
