Amy and David met each other in high school and reconnected again after a long time friendship. Their inspiring journey came to a beautiful milestone with their wedding commemorating a new beginning. With the perfect spring season providing balanced light and vivid outdoor colors, we enjoyed working to capture the genuine and personal celebrations of the couple’s wedding.
We visited Stone House at Stirling Ridge for their wedding venue and were very impressed by the many scenic backgrounds as well as the delicious catering. The banquet fest was tastefully prepared by Chef Jerry Villa’s team with all-organic natural ingredients. Rustic yet urban, contemporary yet classic, Stone House gave an experience that made us photographers want to come back for another culinary adventure!

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Can’t believe that we were still experiencing some snow even in March. It was quite a scene at our most recent wedding at Liberty House restaurant in Jersey City with the breathtaking Manhattan skyline. When we saw the snowflakes last Saturday, we were excited to know that we would create some unusual, awesome pictures that day. Snow can be quite a natural reflector gifted from God. Congratulations to Megan and Daniel for celebrating their life journey together with a beautiful white start! We wish you a lifetime of happiness no matter what comes in your way!
Natasia & Shiv’s grand and opulent affair was held at the prestigious and beautiful Addison Park in the heart of New Jersey. We brought in a 8′ Jib with remote control for the occasion to capture the ceremony from a high angle using The Addison park’s large crystal chandeliers as foreground.

Good morning, we woke up and saw the following picture & quote popping up on our facebook newsfeed.
It completely caught us and we just have to share with our readers. May you have an awesome Monday!
Last night, billion people watching the Oscars live last night. Our jaws dropped when Jennifer Lawrence crumbled to the floor. She fell in front of a billion people. Unfortunately the fall seemed overshadowed her speech and embarrassed her greatly. Last on, Ben Affleck’s speech very sweetly touch upon Jennifer’s fall. He said the following: “And it doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life because that’s going to happen. All that matters is you gotta get up.” Very eloquently said. This quote made the whole Oscar experience worth the while. It is indeed the best attitude and lesson that we can even adapt in life. We have no control about everything in life but we do have control of our attitude and how we react to it. No matter where you are, we hope this message pick you up. Happy Monday!
