Last October, I had the privilege of taking Erin and Justin’s engagement photos, so it was a great joy catching up with this couple a year later to do their wedding. You can really sense the strong chemistry that these two share. It’s not always easy for a couple to pose in front of a camera, but these two are so natural at it. Not only are they married now, but in a couple weeks they’ll both be graduating as Doctors of Optometry from my post-graduate school, Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Congratulations guys!
The wedding took place at Brendan T. Byrne State Forest, New Jersey, a calm location next to a lake. One of my favorite aspects of this wedding was that the events seemed so simple to navigate through from start to finish. We didn’t have to mess with crazy indoor lighting, run around to different locations, or meet any specific time crunches. This was a time for games, barbecues, and bonding time between two families joining in matrimonial celebration. The wedding was very fun to document for me and my second shooter, Ryan Chia.
This was the first time I took photos for both engagement and wedding. It was quite nice to see my work printed and put int picture frames, something that I don’t see very often since I don’t do it very often. I love how these turned out!
The wedding took place around this nice serene lake. It was very calming. Still, don’t let this picture fool you too much. It was a bit chilly on this day, but everyone had a grand time nevertheless.
Congratulations again! May God Bless you on your new lives together!
Your photographers, AJ and Ryan
