One of the items that I offer than many of my clients are unfamiliar with are proof albums. In this digital age they are fast becoming a thing of the past, so much so that I need to import them from abroad! Yes, I love viewing and sharing my images online, but there is something very special about about flipping though a storybook of all your wedding images. As a photojournalist, who always shoots with a second photographer I always deliver more that 1,000 finished images. It the entire story of my couples wedding day. I picture my couples sitting there with their grandchildren, flipping through pages and sharing the day were it all began. MY could receive a personalized 2 volume proof album set with fill size first edition prints. I know they are becoming old fashioned…… but I love them and hope you do too!
I just adore Jasna Polana in Princeton, NJ. It reminds me of my many trips to Europe, and rightly so as many parts of it’s architecture are from Europe. Romantic story, John Seward Johnson built the mansion for his 3rd wife Barbara. She was Polish and missed Europe. In the 1970’s he brought a piece of Europe to her. Definitely and beautiful and romantic place to be wed!
In my series of favorite New Jersey wedding venues I always have to include historic Congress Hall in Cape May. From the bridal preparations in the robins egg blue rooms to the checkerboard dance floor, it’s Victorian charm is just perfection. And let’s not forget, I get a day at the beach!
I thought I would revisit some of my favorite New Jersey venues this winter. I know I do a lot of weddings in Philadelphia but New Jersey has many grand venues that I love working at. The beautiful Tudor mansion, The Pleasantdale Château is just stunning. Beautiful lush grounds and the mansion has been featured in many movies and photo shoots. No wonder why!
