Jen & Chris – their wedding day – The Venetian, NJ

This was one of those weddings that I was really looking forward to this year. I mean, really looking forward to it. With the engagement photo session last year, we had a heavy rain downpour, but Jen & Chris really brought the sparkle to the rainy day. So much that I used photos from the engagement session to illustrate a chapter in my book on off-camera flash photography. Lots of energy and tons of personality just made it one of the most memorable photo sessions I’ve photographed in New York.

Which leads us right to their wedding day, an exuberant affair ending with the reception at The Venetian, NJ. We did stop by the waterfront in Hoboken to photograph the bridal party and the romantic portrait of Jen & Chris.

Jen & Chris – the two of you are just fabulous, and it was wonderful to work with you over this time. Congrats & best wishes.

Hello Neil,

I saw this couple in one of your books I purchased. Great wedding shots. The pictures really bring out the atmosphere of the wedding. Great job. By the way, enjoyed your book as well.

Good light,

My question is how do you show your clients there proofs. Are you giving them a book, a disc or do they view them on line
