Also, thank you Meredith and Matthew for not looking at us like we’re insane when we asked you to stand in front of that bright orange bathroom trailer:)

nj-backyard-wedding

The place we grow up can leave a lasting impression on us. Certain smells, sights, and sounds can bring a rush of feelings that makes us feel like we are longing to go back to where we came from. Some of us are lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit these places that are special to us. Rarely do we get to build new memories in a place where we have so many old ones.

Dara and Andy got married on the farm that where Dara grew up. In fact, the property has been in her family for generations. Talk about a meaningful place to celebrate one of the most important days of your life. Imagine getting married where you don’t just smell the grass, but the smell reminds you of the times you would lay there as a child. Imagine getting married somewhere that you recognize the placement of stars in the night sky from years of staring at them……or where the sound of insects is so very familiar.

Now, when Dara goes home, she’ll have a whole new set of vivid memories to re-live.

For us, one of our dreams, as cheesy as it sounds, is for future generations to flip through Dara and Andy’s wedding album, perhaps on the farm, and have a chance to travel in their minds to a day in the distant past that was so pivotal in the course of their family. Thanks Dara and Andy for letting us be a part of your lives.

Steve

Backyard Wedding Portraits NJ Brenizer Method

There are so many things to write about Jayne and Chuck’s wedding…..like how we did portraits in the backyard of the home they plan to spend the rest of their lives in, or how their dog Marley decided to join us for photos of their bridal party, or Jayne’s awesome dance moves, or just the amazing amount of love they have for each other.

There are so many great stories from Jayne and Chuck’s wedding that we always wind up bringing them up when we meet with prospective couples. So many funny/beautiful/interesting things happened that its hard not to talk about. We cannot thank Jayne and Chuck enough for letting us document their wedding.

  • Shari - June 27, 2014

    I am completely smitten with these two (OMG her face when they see each other…and that dog….oh my)but I’m also in love with the two of you. This is such beautiful work you guys!ReplyCancel

    I am dying at the dog shots and all these crazy dance moves. You guys knocked this one out of the park!ReplyCancel

  • Vitaly - July 1, 2014

    Great stuff. Love the shot by the boat.ReplyCancel

  • Becca Dilley - July 1, 2014

    As usual, you capture so much energy and vitality and color!

    More impressive it the amazing set of portraits you captured in that backyard. I don’t think most people would have found such varied and lovely ways to capture two people with a boat, or on a swinging chair, or even with a fence behind them. No huge architectural marvel, no expansive manicured park, just two people and a beautiful little neighborhood.ReplyCancel
