Memorial Day weekend. Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Traffic. Kohr Bros. ice cream. Mayhem. Fried pickles. Seagulls. Funnel cake. Fresh sea air. Rides. People fighting on the beach. People dancing on the beach. People in love on the beach.
Here’s to (somewhat) maintaining my balance on a moving carousel. Here’s to taking Uber for 4 totally walkable blocks. Here’s to Katie and Andre.

I was psyched out of my head to shoot this wedding and I’ll tell you why. BIG OLE WATERFALLS! In New Jersey? Say what now? A lot of people have no idea what or where the Great Falls are. It’s one of those things you kinda sorta hear about, but never really follow up on. Until you go there and see them yourself. Susanna and Marcus were getting married at The Brownstone in Paterson which is right around the corner from the Great Falls.
We made good use of our time before things got underway for the ceremony to get some breathtaking shots all over the falls. We lucked out and even got a sweet rainbow ripping across the drop. Ridiculous! I am still psyched about the waterfalls and we’re two paragraphs into this blog…and it’s been months since the wedding.
After nature blew our collective minds, we headed back to the venue to get everyone into position for the ceremony. They had a ceremony that reminded me a bit of my own. They stamped their own touch on the ceremony and it was lovely.
The remainder of the day featured some sweet dance moves for reception and heartfelt toasts from family members. A great, great wedding. Special thanks to Lew Monty for second shooting with me and assisting throughout the day.
Enjoy the photographs.
Hey what do you know we’re back in hip and delicious Asbury Park for another modeling shoot with an up and coming model named Lauren. She’s represented by Cleri Models which means she’s being represented by the best and on her way already.
We got started at one of my favorite places to shoot, Salt Studios, located on Cookman Ave. downtown. We had a gorgeous day outside, so we did two looks in the studio and then headed down to the beach.
Special thanks to Lew Monty for hauling butt as usual and keeping the reflectors on the ground during a windy beach day. He was rewarded with artisanal pizza afterward.
