NYC wedding photographers | The Staten Island Hilton Wedding of Cassianne & Dan

staten-island-hilton-wedding

We could never get tired of photographing these two.

Cassianne and Dan like to smile. There aren’t many photos in this blog post or their full gallery that show them without huge smiles on their faces. That is what a wedding should be all about……a celebration of  how we are lucky enough to experience love.

We did their portraits by the tree where Dan proposed, and where they carved their initials after they got engaged. We were quickly reminded of how inspiring the chemistry between them is.

We both feel a range of emotions when we photograph a couple. It makes me think about some of the best days in my life. I also think about the future. Where will we all be 50 years from now? The photos I’m taking at that very moment will still be around. In that moment, I’m documenting the way Cassieanne is looking at Dan, and I am overwhelmed by knowing that 50 years from now, she will still be looking at him the same way.

Life can be challenging, difficult, and harsh sometimes, but little things, like the way you look at the people you love are what should be remembered.

nj engagement and wedding photographers | fall farm engagement session | Kristina and Justin

We love the fall. Between weddings, engagements, and families, we pretty much work around the clock this time of year. But that’s totally cool with us since there are so many opportunities to get out and photograph everything that the fall season has to offer here in NJ.

When Kristina emailed us to set up her engagement session, she mentioned that she’d like to do it at the farm where she works and that they had hay bales, mums, and a corn maze. Add in some beautifully diffused light, a ridiculously cute doggy…….can it get more photogenic than that?

nj family photographers | beach family photo session | the Kelnhofer Family

Steve and I often talk about how on the surface, family sessions appear to be most important to the parents, but its likely their children who will hold these photos closest many years from now. Knowing that we’re responsible for preserving memories for our couples and families is very inspiring, but what makes it even more amazing is being able to document their lives as they progress and knowing that their children will remember these moments too. We first photographed Marcus when he was 6 months old, now he’s two years older and even cuter (if you can believe that,) and we know that this wont be the last time. Over the years we’ve become close with the Kelnhofers (who have added a puppy, Dune, to the family,) they’re great people and great friends.

These are also our memories…

Julianne
