Oheka Castle Wedding Photographer - Jennifer & Jonathan

I had my wedding business in New York City for 5 years before I moved to Bucks County. I shot several weddings on Long Island while I lived in New York and even after I left, but I never had the pleasure of shooting at Oheka Castle. It was on my wedding venue bucket list for a multitude of reasons, but the obvious one being that it was a hugely impressive and beautifully manicured estate that I had seen in the pages of celebrity wedding magazines.. I am not the type of person that dreamed about my wedding at length throughout my childhood but when I hear my five year old talk about weddings, brides and grooms, this is the classic fairytale location of which, I’m sure, she’s imagining. Everywhere I turned was another beautiful location, idyllic light streaming through the windows, and European influenced decor. It felt impossible to make bad images at Oheka Castle and it was purely delightful photographing Jennifer and Jonathan on their wedding day and working with their families, some of whom we’d had the pleasure of working with before. When lovely people intersect with a stunning location and beautiful weather, magic happens. I hope you enjoy these images of one of my favorite weddings.

Silver Creek Country Club Wedding - Janelle and Sean

Janelle and Sean have a quiet love that becomes more and more apparent the more time you spend with them.  It was nice to witness such a sweet relationship that didn't put on any airs and was truly genuine and just for the two of them.  They were married at Silver Creek Country Club and it was a beautiful day for a truly perfect couple.  Thank you for trusting me to photograph this day, Janelle and Sean.  I hope these moments will last a lifetime and beyond. little girl getting ready for wedding at Silver Creek Country Club

Amy and Dave

Amy and Dave introduced me to the beautiful town of Tenafly in New Jersey.  I always love shooting in new places and this little park Amy found was perfect, in spite of a dolled-up birthday girl and her countless "birthday-maids".  What we witnessed was like a teen wedding complete with a bus-limo, photographer and videographer.  Really, the oddest thing.  In spite of the commotion, we found plenty of light to work with and then headed over to the railroad tracks, which I also loved!  Thanks for being so photogenic, you guys.  Aren't they adorable?

Katie and Michael

The Castle at Skylands Manor set the scene for Katie and Michael's wedding in September.  The bridal party had 20+ people and kept us on our toes all day.  It was fun working with such a big group and everyone was so nice and surprisingly willing to shoot formals for awhile!
It was also a pleasure to see two of my former brides at Katie's wedding.  It's always fun working with a group of friends and I'm happy to have another friend of theirs coming up next year!
One last thing that made their day special: not only did Katie get married on her wedding day but she also celebrated her birthday!  Michael surprised her with roses and balloons :)
