The intimate and casual affair attended by their closest friends and relatives took place at The Maplewood […]
I always consider it a personal honor when a family wants me back to be their photographer. Two years ago, I was thrilled to photograph the wedding of my former co-worker, Michele, to her boyfriend, Tom. This year, it was Tom’s sister, Lisa, who tied the knot with her fiance, Ryan, on Sept. 1, 2013. […]
Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of taking Brianne and Gregg’s engagement photos at Pier A Park in Hoboken, N.J. I enjoyed the hour with this couple who had fun-loving and laid-back personalities, so I’m really looking forward to photographing their wedding day in 2014.

Josh proposed to Candice at the castle-like Women’s Federation Monument on the cliff top of the Palisades in Alpine, NJ, that had a hiking trail and a scenic view of the Hudson River, so it’s only fitting that the couple chose this place to have their engagement photo session. They will hold their wedding next […]
In September, I will be photographing Nicole and Rob’s wedding at a unique and fun venue, the YMCA Camp Ockanickon in Medford, NJ.

Franchette thought she won a raffle for tickets to a Broadway show. At least that’s what the announcer at Citi Pond at Bryant Park said over the loudspeakers. So as she was receiving her “prize” in the middle of the skating rink, Glenn glided over to her side and proceeded to get down on one […]
The year 2012 was a great one for me personally because my son, Renzo, was born in September. So at every assignment I covered for the newspaper from the start of the year, Renzo was along for the ride until August when I took my maternity leave. Here are a few of my favorite images […]
As a gift, I recently photographed my friend Toni and her boyfriend Pat, who are expecting their Baby Boy Nicholas in January.
