Amanda & Jessica Engagement – July 30th, 2017

AJEngagement (51 of 104)

Amanda, Jessica, and I went to Sayen Gardens in Hamilton, NJ for their engagement shoot. They are getting married in September, but this is their first time out taking photographs together to celebrate their engagement. We had such a good time! It was as casual and laid-back as one would expect from a summer stroll through the park. Birds were out chirping their songs away, rabbits danced along the paths and trails we took, and even some deer popped in to say hello (from a healthy distance away). All in all, it was a great way to spend a Sunday evening. Check out the highlights from this photoshoot below!

Amanda & Jessica Engagement – July 30th, 2017

Here are some highlights from Amanda and Jessica’s engagement shoot this past Sunday at Sayen Gardens in New Jersey.  We had such a good time wandering around the park to find pockets of natural light throughout the afternoon and early evening.

Andrea & Ashley Rainer Wedding – July 14th, 2017

Here are some highlights from Ashley and Andrea’s wedding this past weekend. It’s truly incredible to see so many friends and family members come together for these two. The rain and weather did not stop these two from having the time of their lives together.

Tom & Noelle Maternity – July 8th, 2017

This past Saturday night, I went to Double Trouble State Park in New Jersey with Noelle and Tom for their maternity session. None of us has ever been to this park before, but we heard some good things about it, so when we got there, we just played it by ear. Even without knowing the place beforehand, this turned into one of my favorite locations and we got some of my favorite family portraits I’ve ever taken!  Noelle is due in September, and at this point, I think that pregnancy glow is in full effect. Their daughter Mia joined us and was an absolute pleasure the entire time (and she even tried to steal the show). Check out highlights from the Torres family maternity photos below.

I had the pleasure to join and photograph Maisie’s birthday this past weekend. She is a dear and close friend to the family and she actually had a helping hand in raising myself and my brother Devon. You’ll quickly notice that this was an all-white affair! Everyone had a blast and partied all night long through midnight. Check out some highlights of the night below.

Every Once In a While

Every once in a while, a photograph I take stands out from all the rest. Sometimes it’s the composition, sometimes it’s the subject itself, sometimes it’s dynamic or interesting lighting, or sometimes it’s a strike of imagination that I catch off the cuff and I capture it. When I shot my friend’s twins’ 2nd birthday party at a jungle gym play place two weeks ago, this photo is a combination of all of those criteria in one.

88MPH Promo Photoshoot

88MPH Promo Photoshoot 2.27.17

A few months back, 88MPH and I teamed up for a photoshoot to help build the band’s press kit and online presence. Previously, I’ve shot a number of live shows for them, but they were missing the professional, clean, and presentable photo of the band together. Here are some highlights from that session.
