Christine and Joe’s Asbury Park Engagement Session

Christine and Joe’s Asbury Park Engagement Session

It’s July 4th weekend, people! As the saying goes, celebrate the independence of our country by blowing up a small part of it. This engagement session is timely for such an occasion because we have Christine and Joe who are recently engaged. Joe serves in the United States Army. Christine had a few shots in mind, but the rest was up to me. We made the most of the sunset in Asbury. The boardwalk is always filled with families, dogs and joggers. It’s rude to grab random dogs and pose with them, so they brough their own…BENNY!

Benny kept everyone entertained by being freaking adorable and eating his snacks between shutter clicks. Christine’s mom came along and took Benny home after he was done being awesome.

The remainder of our time shooting was spent on the beach and boardwalk. We lucked out getting very wide shots of the abandoned casino. For some of the casino shots, I lit up the inside with my ABR800 at 1/1 power. It’s nice to show off the architecture. Thank you Christine and Joe for hustling with me to get these wonderful photographs. Congratulations to both of you on your engagement and please, please use Benny as the ring bearer.

One of my latest projects was once again working with model Kelly to create something I had floating around in my head. We hiked around Watchung Reservation and found the perfect spot. Thanks to Lew Monty for assisting as always. You can see him doing his best to stay out of frame in the before/after shot.

Heckman Family Portraits…Now With 100% More Skateboarding!

Heckman Family Portraits…Now With 100% More Skateboarding!

Jeff and Sarah recently welcomed tiny Isaiah into the wonderful skate park known as life. All I can ever ask from a newborn is that they do not flip out. He was a champion and even went along with my ridiculous ideas like skateboarding in the living room.

This might be the only time skateboarding in the living room will be permitted. These are some of my favorite family portraits to date because everything rolled along so naturally. Congratulations to this brand spanking new family.

Last night I had the distinct honor of photographing my brother and his housemate. My primary goal for the evening was concentrated on black and white imagery.
