Welcome back!

Yesterday i had the pleasure of photographing the lovely wedding of Samantha and Travis. They were such a fun and easy going couple. We had a blast during their engagement session so I knew that the wedding would be just as great. Fun couples and bridal parties always make the best wedding day photo's in my professional opinion. :)

Early in the day, I met Samantha and her bridesmaids for bridal prep shots at the Versailles Ballroom. From the start, I was greeted by lots of smiles and a great wedding day atmosphere. My assistant had a great time working with Travis and all his groomsmen. After the first look, we took a trip to the nearby park named, double trouble.

This park provided a lot of rustic photo opportunities and a lot of options for photo's.

After the portrait session, we returned back to the ballroom for the intimate wedding ceremony. The reception was one to remember. I really enjoyed the first dance on the clouds. [ see image above ] 

Thanks Sam and Travis for having me on your big day!

It was a pleasure.

Hey Everyone!

Thanks again for visiting my wedding photography blog. I've been incredibly busy lately, shooting so many beautiful couples. This is a good thing and also a great time for wedding photography.

As many of you know, Long Beach Island is a short drive from my home residence. I frequently take many trips there throughout the year. Every time I approach the island, I am always impressed by the Mallard Island Yacht Club. It truly stands out as a landmark. I would always say to myself, "I'd love to photograph a wedding at this venue". When I met Lauren and she told me this was her wedding day venue, I immediately jumped at the opportunity. A beautiful bride + beautiful venue = great wedding day photo's.

Groom prep was held in the lower area designated as the "Groom Shack". The guys were a lot of fun and were very easy going. Laurens bridal prep was held in her suite. I was so impressed with how easy going she was during the day. Photographing this beautiful bride was a total breeze.

The occasion was held at the Southern Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey. I especially enjoyed this venue because their was a lot of natural light flooding inside. The Southern Mansion also has a variety of scenic locations as well, such as the front porch and garden area. The staff was also very friendly.

Hello everyone!

I was very excited when I first met Jenna and she told me that she was getting married at Rode's Barn. As a wedding photographer, I knew shooting a wedding in a barn would be a totally unique scenario. I've seen barn weddings before and I jumped at the opportunity to shoot it.

Marcy and Joe's wedding day at Long Beach Island, NJ http://solidrockphotographyjc.net/blog/2017/5/marcy-and-joes-wedding-day-at-long-beach-island-nj 768A7898768A7898

 

Hello All!

I'm going to start this blog by saying that, I love Long Island, NJ. It's such a beautiful beach town. Since it's a relatively short drive from my home, I often come here when I need to relax or get away. Whenever I get a chance to shoot a wedding in LBI, I am very happy and equally excited.

Now enough about me, lets get to the photo story!  :)

768A7979768A7979

Marcy and Joe shot their first look session at the Light House, over looking the ocean. Lots of friends and family were in attendance for this special moment. The wedding portraits were taken under a nearby gazebo. This gazebo gave us nice and even lighting.

The wedding ceremony and reception were both held at the State Room.  It was a nice, private ceremony. The brides brother was the officiant for the service. This added an extra layer of emotion to the wedding.

The reception was held in the upper level of the Stateroom. Wedding speeches were made by both the best man and maid of honor. It was a great time for both families.

Wow! Is all I can say about this wedding. I do not know where to begin. It was so awesome to shoot this day. Everything was on point from beginning to end.

Angela, the bride had such a pleasant demeanor throughout the entire wedding day. Upon my arrival for bridal prep photo's, I was greeted by lots of friendly smiles by the bridesmaids.

Angela was so easy to pose and work with for her bridal preparation shots. It was like working with one of my professional models.

All the prep work was shot in the Marriott Hotel.

The bridal portraits were taken on the second floor of the Waterside restaurant. This venue provided breathtaking views of the New York City skyline. I also loved the all white interior. The restaurant staff was also super friendly, allowing me to move furniture pieces in order to work.

The couple had a wonderful spot light on them during the first dance and cake cutting. This allowed me to get some pretty dynamic shots. I had a lot of light and shadow detail to work with.

Thanks for reading about this exciting wedding day!

Indian Wedding Bridal Shoot http://solidrockphotographyjc.net/blog/2017/4/indian-wedding-bridal-shoot  

About twice a year maybe more, I host a wedding editorial shoot. I have a great team of makeup artists, hairstylists, designers and models that I work with.

I am very excited to have an Indian wedding booked for the end of the year so I decided on that for the theme of my bridal editorial.

It was a very windy day to shoot on the beach, but we had a great time. The wind blowing from the west actually helped showcase the beautiful, dupattas.

The beautiful wedding sarees were handled with care as we shot and were very comfortable for our models. We had four sarees available for our shoot.

The bridal jewelry accessories were provided by Nitra Jain of Glitter Trunk Jewelry. She specializes in Indian jewelry. All of her items and materials are straight from India. Shots of the wedding details were taken indoors. I setup a few studio lights to focus on the accessories.

I hope you enjoyed this blog. I truly appreciate the Indian culture and would love to shoot more Indian weddings. All of the colors, jewelry, beautiful henna designs combined with lots of love will make gorgeous wedding day images. I also forgot to mention that I am willing to travel :)

Stay tuned for my first Indian wedding in the next few months.

Yours truly,

 

Jamal T. Cormier
