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

TorresMaternity (13 of 108)

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.

Pasquale’s Baptism – May 7th, 2017

Colandrea Baptism - 05.07.17

Check out some of my favorite photos from Pasquale’s baptism this weekend at Our Lady of Victories Parish at Sayreville, NJ. There were so many that it was hard to choose my favorites. The little sleepyhead slept through half the ceremony, but here’s a little known fact: Pasquale was the only baby getting baptized who didn’t cry.

Check out some highlights below from a double newborn shoot from last week. These two best friends from birth (born just under two weeks apart) were the perfect models! I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to not only photograph these two, but to capture the magic and excitement of the beginning of these two families’ next chapter.

Although we wound up going out on the coldest day of the season so far (the high was only 36 degrees!), that didn’t get Angela and Michael down at all. In fact, you could feel the warmth between them as they’re patiently (okay, anxiously) awaiting their first baby due next month! We took a stroll around the Asbury Park boardwalk for the shoot and had a fantastic afternoon together. I personally love the way these photos came out and I am so excited to share them with you below!

From the Salsa and Motown music to the Spanish food to the toasts to the extra hour of partying, this was a fantastic and upbeat party! I actually felt like I was a part of the family from the very minute things started. Check out some of the highlights below from this birthday celebration this past Saturday!

Colandrea “Baby C” Shower – November 6th, 2016

To quote Angela’s friend Rita, it feels like I’m almost family with this fantastic group of people with how often I’m around to photograph key events! After photographing Angela and her closest friends the morning of her wedding last year, I’m thrilled to celebrate her baby shower with her and to see her little family begin to grow. One of my favorite parts about this shower was just how beautiful that cake is. Check it out below along with the other highlights from this Sunday afternoon in South River, NJ.

Kosakowska 21st & 70th Birthday – November 5th, 2016

What can I say about this extravagant double birthday party over in South Amboy, New Jersey this past Saturday night? To steal Double Mint’s slogan, it was “double the pleasure, double the fun.” To add on, when you get four generations of family together in celebration, it’s bound to be a fantastic night for all friends and family involved. From the two cakes, delicious dinner, the DJ’s throwback jams (90’s jams? YES!), the conga line, the “dose of chocolate” candy bar, and the heartfelt toasts, I can honestly say this was one of the most fun parties I’ve seen in a very long time. Check out some of the highlights from the party below!
