Doherty Family Shoot

I got a last minute email asking if I was available for a huge family shoot, as luck would have it, I was. That is when I met the Doherty family and the zaniness that ensued was off the charts. They are such a fun family with tons of personality! Here are some of my favorites from their shoot, I’d like to thank Nikki and Chip who helped me wrangle and shoot everyone!

Jessica + Michael { Asbury Park Engagement }

I met Michael through his industry presence at Posh Entertainment, we’ve worked together several times, so when he told me he was engaged and needed a photographer, needless to say, I was stoked. For their engagement session we headed to the Asbury Park boardwalk for their session. So many onlookers would comment as they walked by, and one even wanted his pic with Michael… I think he might just use that for his save the dates…

Kelsey + John { McLoone’s}

So many candid moments showed through on Kelsey and John’s wedding day, whether it be laughing at the altar or making funny faces during bridal party photos. I always love when my couples show personality as it livens up the photos as well as breaks the tension of the day. Not only was the lovely Vanessa with me on this day ( her images are in with mine ) but I also had the pleasure of seeing a previous couple who’s wedding I did a few years ago, and…………… the pleasure of working with my favorite Dj, Tony Tee from SCE!

Thank you for taking a look at these, hope you enjoy!

Leah + Justin { Chicago Wedding }

This wedding had a lot of firsts for me:

First time I’ve spent more than a few hours on a layover in Chicago

First time I’ve had deep dish pizza ( OMG )

First time the Mother of the Bride has ever adopted me on the spot

and last but not least,

First time I rode in the passenger seat as the bride drove herself to the wedding

This was seriously one of the best weddings of the year. Not only was it chock full of pretty flowers, cuz that’s kinda like, ya know, the bride’s thing and all… but everybody I met was so down to earth I felt like family. When leaving for the evening I got a hug from the groom! It’s so awesome when people can choose anybody they want, and they want you there. I will never let that leave me as something I find truly heartwarming. Whether it was joking around with the bridal party, or the carefree attitude to try anything I wanted to do. I seriously left the wedding wanting to do it all over again as it was that fun! I had

the lovely Charmi was with me on this wedding, an indelible help and got some kick ass shots ( which are sprinkled in with mine )

PS.

Leah and Justin, if you are reading this… I caught ya winkin’ at each other… nanny nanny boo boo
