Jessica & Greg ~ NJ Botanical Gardens Engagement Session

About a week ago, I had the honor of hanging out for a couple of hours with this super cool couple. I think it was actually the peak day for autumn color this season; the perfect moment of oranges, yellows and reds on trees still full of their leaves. The parking lots of the NJ Botanical Gardens were absolutely packed with people taking advantage of the beautiful day.

Jess and Greg are getting married next July, and just from this session, I know for a fact their wedding is going to be so full of love and laughter. I can’t wait! Here are a few of my favorites from this totally delightful engagement session:

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite favorite, but this is definitely one of them:

And, wow. Where did spring come from?! Were these pink leaves not the coolest find?!

What a PERFECT session! Thanks, Jess and Greg, for rockin’ it!

Erica and Mike - 10/11/08

You may remember Erica and Mike from their engagement back in June. Well, they’re hitched! Erica’s sweet smile is still as bright as ever, and Mike is still so very good at making her laugh. This wedding was such a blast!

Here are just a few of my favorites for a sneak peak into their day!

^ I’m not usually one for lots of extra Photoshop embellishments, but this couch and this shot were just asking for some glowy, chrome effect! Erica, you’re lookin’ hot!

^ The “First Look.” No crying just yet … only kisses! ;-)

^ Isn’t she beautiful?!

^ I love, love, love having a bit of time before the ceremony to make romantic portraits like this one!

^ Mike is always making Erica smile.

^ Under the columns of the entrance at the Women’s Club of Glen Ridge. A stellar spot for a reception.

^ The ladies!

^ The ceremony at Park United Methodist was just so romantic.

^ What a perfect kiss! This officiant was so kind and obviously attune to what makes a great ceremony kiss picture!

^ How about some bubbles?

^ Erica’s mom was such a star … she completely surprised these two with a horse and carriage to carry them away from the church!

^ Up on my tip-toes for this one, but I just had to get all the cameras in the bottom corner!

^ Every detail was perfect. Each table had a unique candle centerpiece and all were so intricate and glowing beautifully. And what’s more, Erica and her mom can take the credit for the amazing decorating!

^ See those flowers on the top? They’re really made out of sugar. I’m always floored by cake decorators with this talent!

^ The first dance.

^ This photo was taken earlier in the day, but it’s such a fun dancing shot, I had to include it here.

^ And the dancing went on into the night with tunes by Epic Total Entertainment. Just a splendid reception!

Erica and Mike, thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your perfect day!
