The Mill at Spring Lake Wedding of Tracey and Nick

Photographed by Monmouth County NJ Wedding Photographers Julianne and Steven Markow

by Julianne

A few weeks ago we got to do something awesome and photographed Steve’s sister’s wedding…

I first met Tracey 10 years ago when I started dating Steve. She came home from work and found me straightening Steve’s then super long hair in the living room…

I’ve always wanted an older sister, and over the years Tracey became one to me. I finally had someone I could borrow a prom dress from, and someone who could keep secrets;-)

Tracey was also very picky, and rightfully so. She never fell for anyone in college and held off until she could find someone perfect. When she first met Nick she started glowing… she was so happy.

Nick is quirky (see photo of vitamin packs below) but a great guy. He’s perfect for Tracey and just like she welcomed me into her family years ago, I’m so excited about Nick now being a part of our family now too.

Needless to say I cried a lot on her wedding day, and so did Steve. He just about broke down before she walked up the aisle in both of their parents arms.

I’ve heard many times that you should never shoot a wedding for family, and I think in most cases that applies… but when there are certain moments that only a brother and sister-in-law could catch (like Tracey’s smirk to Steve before she walked up the aisle,) it just had to be us…

A few notes… Nick is a fan of vitamins, Tracey loves wine and her leopard print shoes, my father-in-law loves watching the ocean, my mother-in-law never drinks, and those are baby Sofia’s very first steps…

    So many beautiful shots..I love the one where they’re(bride/groom) sitting down and leaning in to each other (near the bottom–6 up from bottom). Even the picture of the Bride with the hairspray coming out and silhouette of her face..creative pic. The two turtles is cute, symbolic! The groom with the Emergen-C packs made me laugh…and the lady with the black shirt arm-in-arm w/other arm up in the air, dancing w/another lady made me laugh..I can picture her saying “oooh yeaaaah” when she’s work you guys!!! :-)ReplyCancel
