Dominique & Jerry | 1.21.17

Dominique and Jerry's wedding was the first to take me out of the country. This was my first chance to really combine my two passions, weddings and travel photography. This adventure was set to the backdrop of the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. The bride and groom were gracious enough to let me attend and photograph their intimate destination celebration. It was a two day affair, starting with a bumpy puddle hopper plane trip from St. Maarten to St. Kitts that wouldn't have been out of place in an Indiana Jones movie. The ceremony took place on the beach surrounded by grassy mountains and craggy stone shorelines. At sunset the local fishermen came out to pull in their colorful catches. We spent the day after the wedding exploring the island. Wild monkeys, fading murals, palm trees, and ancient sugar mill ruins made it a photographer's playground. I loved being able to spend so much one-on-one time with the bride and groom without all of the pressures of a typical wedding day. Their willingness for adventure, and to stop whenever we saw a new amazing location, fed my passion for landscapes and portraits. I hope to do this again very, very soon...   --m

Kelsey & Anthony | 10.14.16

Kelsey and Anthony's wedding was pure autumn. We always visit the Hudson Valley this time of year. The pumpkins, hot food, and colors. The day was set in view of the Mid-Hudson Bridge and tree covered hills. Familiar faces were all around us. This is the third time we've got to party with this family! All of their weddings have been so different and unique, and there are more to come! From nerf guns to a dog in a tux to Beatles karaoke to the lights of the bridge at night... it was a perfect day. Walking along the shores of the Hudson River with these two, feeling their excitement and love is one of the great things about our job.  --m

Rachel & Chris | 10.1.16

Rachel and Chris's wedding came to us last minute through a friend. Like finding tickets to a sold out show the day of. They were married under a willow tree in Rachel's backyard, which seemed to exist there only for that purpose. An intimate ceremony gave way to a night of great music and more love than could fill the tent. The clouds were low and the fall colors were just beginning to show. The perfect day for campfires and dancing in long sleeves. Jess and I are so grateful to have been invited to this special gathering, and for being introduced to these two adventurous souls... primo seats to a great show.  --m

Catskills Fall 2016

We took Mira to the Catskills for her first trip. A long weekend in the woods. Campfires every night, foggy mornings, and sunny afternoons. We always feel at home in the forest, surrounded by the thick leaved trees just beginning to turn. It feels like the 60's here. Watching the Gandalfs of the world returning home. Visiting the Big Pink where The Band and Dylan laid it down. This is where Mira learned to laugh. Until the next adventure...  --m

Kim & Matt | 8.19.16

Since we started doing wedding photography a few years ago, I never expected that it would reconnect me with so many old friends -- but that has been one of the most enjoyable aspects of it for me. Kim and I went to high school together and it was so much fun to get back in touch and to see her so happy on her wedding day. Mark and I loved making these images, and the Sussex County Fairgrounds gave us so much rustic character to work with. The perfect end to our summer wedding season. --j
