New Jersey Bride Magazine Feature – In Black & White

So honored to have my work featured in the latest issue of New Jersey Bride Magazine. Black & White photography has always been a major passion of mine and it’s what ignited my interest in photography from the beginning. Since I have been photographing weddings since 1999, it was all film back then and I had processed all my B&W images. Once digital changed the photography landscape I’ve always tried to perfect the look of my B&W’s to have that timeless richness that only B&W film can give. I even add some grain to every image. I was very honored when New Jersey Bride interviewed me for the article and especially honored they chose some of my favorite images!

    

Happy New Year!

I will be entering my 17th year in professional wedding photography this 2016! I feel so blessed to have found an art form that I have maintained a passion for over so many years. A hopeless romantic, I love love, families, beauty, hope and all the many wondrous things that make up a wedding. Thank you to all my great couples, past. present and future!  Thank you for letting me capture and share in this momentous day in the lives of you and your family. I’m looking forward to so many wonderful weddings to come in 2016. Silly me, I was just looking back on some of my 2015 weddings. I noticed a strong preference for white bouquets! Maybe it was just my brides! I even had several brides who chose NO bouquets! (I hope that’s not a trend)! Anyway, thank you to all my couples past and here’s to much love and beauty in 2016! Happy New Year everyone!
