Every couple has their very own love story, their very own style, their very own wedding day. Carmina and Roman’s story, style and wedding day is the sweetest little gift wrapped up in the most perfect of bows. This is a story of crossed paths on the same campus for years, but finally locked eyes, overseas years later. This is a story of a couple so organically in love, a couple eager to start their lifelong journey together. A story of an exquisite wedding day held in the place they passed each other for 4 years. This is Carmina and Roman.

    When I first met with Carmina and Roman, there was an instant connection for me. They were overjoyed, excited and truly connected to one another. They were incredibly polite and couldn’t wait to dive into their wedding photography plans with me. They made me feel as though I’d known them for such a long time and couple/photographer relationship like that, goes a long way. They had both attended Princeton, but with hundreds of mutual friends and overlapping environments, it didn’t being them together until January of 2016.

6U2A34956U2A3495

    Roman as living in Tokyo to pursue a career in finance, along with continuing his passion for football and Carmina who was attending Yale at the time, had flown over to Tokyo to visit her family for Christmas break. They had connected thanks to a mutual friend from school and they had made plans to meet and have dinner. Well, one dinner turned to two, which led to the week ending with Roman attending church with Carmina and her parents and the rest is pretty much history. They withstood the test of a long-distance relationship and when Roman asked Carmina to marry him, he had surprised her with a 4-day trip to Paris and asked her then.

    Their wedding day was just as romantic as their love story. Their ceremony was help at the Princeton Chapel in Princeton, NJ and their reception was hosted at the Princeton Prospect House. If you’ve read my previous blog posts, you can tell I have “a thing” with Princeton. It’s such a historical, classic town and for any photographer-worth visiting and capturing memories and visuals. Carmina, Roman and their entire wedding party fit the classicism of the town, perfectly. I love photographing in nature and capturing these special moments other people may not notice-Carmina, Roman and I went to various locations to take their wedding photos and I had such an amazing time. As you look at their photos, the color tone, florals, hair and makeup and overall feel was a classic romanticism. Whimsical, yet traditional. Graceful, yet high energy and fun.

768A7261768A7261 768A7362768A7362

    Carmina and Roman were enjoying themselves so much and all their family and friends, you could tell, were so in love with the day and having the time of their lives. To capture this day for them, after hearing their love story, meant everything to me. The only thing I can do is thank Carmina and Roman for choosing me to be their wedding photographer and to let them know that not only their wedding day touched me, but their very own love story as well.

Caroline and Ty’s Wedding

 

    There are times when you come across a wedding that is so unique, the entire day takes your breath away. Caroline and Ty one of the sweetest fun-loving couples, I’ve met so far in my wedding photography journey, were created for one another. Boasting their love from start to finish of their wedding day was completely magical.

    Caroline and Ty have a romantic story. A story of long distance love over years, only to make it work and make the commitment to be husband and wife. A story of shared interests and passions, shared work ethic and love of helping others. A cool couple, a couple you get excited to hear is coming over to the get-together. I was overjoyed photographing their love, it never skipped a beat. It was always on point. Their love was in your face, but not in an obnoxious way. A way that makes you want that type of love.

768A7258768A7258

    I photographed them on the battlefield grounds of Princeton University. Whether you live in New Jersey or not, a must is to visit the gorgeous town of Princeton. I was enthralled by the Gothic styled architecture, the grounds, the downtown, the energy-practically everything. Caroline’s family lives in Princeton and she and Ty decided to host their reception in the backyard of her parent’s home which was beautifully designed and organized by Carismas Party Planning Services.

 

IMG_2950IMG_2950

    The tone for the reception was low-key and casual yet still aesthetically stunning. Environmentally friendly and fun-they had a pizza food truck at the reception in which guests could choose from homemade, authentic pizza. It was incredible.

    The evening was spent dancing, playing backyard themed games, eating, making lovely toasts and celebrating Caroline and Ty’s forever love. It was whimsical and romantic, inviting and entertaining, care-free and full of wonderment. They were a handsome couple to photograph, an easy couple to photograph. Natural with themselves and one another-I hardly needed to pose them, they took to being in front of my camera as if they were professionals. Working with a couple like this, makes your job a little less daunting since you don’t have to plan posing options. Most couples are this way and some are just really shy. But with a little bit of patience and creativity, you can turn any couple into the couple that can work the camera.

    I was so grateful to be asked to work on Caroline and Ty’s wedding and wanted to take the time to thank Carismas Party Planning Services. It was definitely a day and wedding to remember.

Megan's Wedding Day! https://solidrockphotographyjc.net/blog/2018/6/megans-wedding-day Award-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and ConnecticutAward-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and Connecticut

Megan and Ivan’s day was an elegant and romantic Sunday brunch wedding at the Scotland Run Golf Club. I was automatically drawn to Megan’s calm and sweet nature and her soon-to-be husband’s easygoing energy. They hosted a gorgeous display of their love for their friends, family and their little baby girl-who may I add, was the cutest little sugar I’ve seen in awhile.

Award-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and ConnecticutAward-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and Connecticut Award-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and ConnecticutAward-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and Connecticut

    The venue was one of the best venues to photograph a wedding in-designed to capture beauty in practically every angle of the estate whether you were indoors or outdoors. Megan’s bridal party palette was a delicate pink theme which I was in love with. It lead the charge for the tone of their wedding which was a classic, yet whimsical affair, At times, it lent an almost European feel to the day: elegant, timeless, fun-loving, celebratory.

    During my time spent with Megan and Ivan, I took notice to a constant flow of laughter and energy. Their bridal party consisted of a group of people who loved both Megan and Ivan deeply and wanted nothing more than to make their day, the best day they could possibly have.

 

Award-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and ConnecticutAward-winning Wedding Photography serving NJ, New York, and Connecticut

    My eye gravitates toward the little moments that are wrapped up in the entire day. A sweet laugh, a stolen moment, the glow of the bride when she sees her final look, the love in the groom’s eyes when his wife is walking toward him down the aisle. All these moments are what makes a wedding day, a wedding day. As I write this, looking through all the photos I’ve taken, reliving May 6th; reliving every wedding I’ve been apart of-I’m jolted into the feeling I experience being a photographer. It’s that feeling we all have when you think about how much you love what you do and how you couldn’t possibly imagine spending your time doing anything else.

To all of my couples, I thank you for that feeling.

Ajila and Vishal's South Asian Fusion Wedding https://solidrockphotographyjc.net/blog/2017/10/ajila-and-vishals-south-asian-fusion-wedding New Jersey Indian Wedding PhotographyNew Jersey Indian Wedding Photography

 

Hello Everyone!

Welcome back to my wedding photography blog!

Last year I was introduced to Vishal and Ajila when I photographed their engagement session. We immediately hit it off as friends and had a great photo session. I knew back then that their wedding day would be as equally fun and a great photographic opportunity.

So as with most Hindu weddings, the celebration took place over the course of a couple days.

New Jersey Indian Wedding PhotographyNew Jersey Indian Wedding Photography

The beautiful wedding, Mehndi Henna that was placed on Ajila's hands symbolized joy, beauty, spiritual awakening and offering. As an artist, I always admired these unique designs. The Quora part of the ceremony "Rice" is considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity. The rice was showered on Vishal and Ajila to bless them a future full of wealth and well being.

After this ceremony, I was able to capture great family photo's from both sides of the family. I must say that everyone greeted me with a lot of hospitality and made me feel very welcome. On another note, the food was very delicious! :)

New Jersey Indian Wedding PhotographyNew Jersey Indian Wedding Photography New Jersey Indian Wedding PhotographyNew Jersey Indian Wedding Photography

On day two, I met Vishal early in the morning for his groom preparation photo's in Woodbridge, NJ. We took great photo's of him putting on his accessories as well as more family photographs.

After that session, I drove to Ajila's location for her preparation photo's. It's important to note that the Bride and Groom had multiple outfit changes throughout the day. I thought this was a very cool idea. More looks gives more variety. Vishal's first look was a slick, Tuxedo. For his second look he wore, a tan Sherwani with red Sirwal pants. Ajila's first wedding look was a beautiful ball gown.

New Jersey Indian Wedding PhotographyNew Jersey Indian Wedding Photography

The wedding reception was an absolute blast! It was full of high energy to say the least. After the Bhangra dance, we had cake cutting and alot more fun dancing.

I want to personally say thank you to Vishal and Ajila for allowing me to be a part of their wedding day. I couldn't have asked for a better couple. Also thanks again to both families involved. You made me feel very, very welcome for this event. 

One of my goals for 2018 is to become a major player in the South Asian Wedding community. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

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.

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.

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!  :)

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!
