Jesse and I met wayyyyy back when in the good ‘ole days of St. James high school. When Jesse messaged me about doing his wedding, I was ecstatic. I knew it would be an amazing wedding. I was not let down..their wedding was a BLAST!
Flashback to engagement pictures, last May (2015) in Cape May. We had so much fun walking around Cape May, finding fun spots for photos. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session.
The morning of the wedding, I headed over bright and early to get some shots of the girls getting ready and the gorgeous dress and ring. While the girls were getting ready, Allison and I snuck outside for some fun detail shots.
Meanwhile, my awesome 2nd shooter Debbie headed over to get some shots of the groomsmen getting ready.
Jesse was hard at work, but soon the guys were getting ready to go!
Of course, Elliot wanted to be part of the action. I LOVE this shot of Jesse and Elliot getting ready
Meanwhile, back with the bride, the girls were getting their first look at Amanda’s dress.
After some finishing touches, the limo arrived and we were off to Parvin State Park for some portraits. The sky was a tad dark on the way over, but I had no worries!
Debbie and the guys arrived before we did, so they took the opportunity to get some great shots. Here are a few of my favorites…
When I arrived with the ladies, it was time for the first look!
Before heading to Centerton, we took advantage of the weather and got in some portrait shots.
Finally, it was time to GET MARRIED!
The weather outside turned out to be gorgeous, so before joining the party we did a few more photos outside.
Then it was time to party!!
After Jesse and Amanda surprised everyone with their amazing choreographed first dance, Debbie and I continued to be impressed with the dance skills all night. There is no doubt that everyone had an amazing time! This group really knew how to party!
Amanda really wanted some photos with her horses, but didn’t want to risk ruining her dress the day of the wedding..smart move, Amanda So instead we did a separate session after the honeymoon. It turned out to be another beautiful day!!
Jesse and Amanda were wonderful to work with, and I wish them many years of happiness!
