I have some exciting news to announce! Over the past few months I have mentioned to some of you that I have been planning to move my studio from the location in Freehold to my home. I was planning on doing it in November when my lease expired but an opportunity presented itself and I was able to make the move sooner than expected. It happened last week!
My new location is my home at 16 Oakwood Terrace, Monroe Township 08831. It is only about 10 miles (20 minutes) from the Freehold location, closer if you are coming from the north.
Why did I move? Over the past year or so I have found myself doing more and more work from home thanks to technology (portable drives, call forwarding). I found that the only time I was going into the studio was for consultations and to meet for designs or the occasional photo session. So I decided to move everything to one location.
I have a nice room (studio) set aside for you when you come to visit. The only thing I do not have now is a shooting studio. Unfortunately I had to give that up. That does not mean I have stopped doing sessions. It means that now I do location sessions. I am working on a way to offer indoor/in studio sessions but have not ironed out the details yet. I still offer all of the same services that I offered before and my quality, dedication and attention to detail have not changed. Only two things have changed; the address and the phone number. You can still reach me at the old phone number for now but eventually the new number will be the only one active. Please take note of it: 732-561-2893. Email addresses, website, Facebook and cell phone are all the same.
Once again the Phoenix has changed and risen again. I am excited for you to see it!
Our last wedding for 2012 was December 29th. The Bride and Groom, Wilhelmina and Nick, celebrated their reception at the Breakers in Spring Lake. After the hurricane there had been concern that there might be damage to the Breakers or that there might have to be changes made to Wilhemina and Nick’s original plans. That wasn’t the case. Everything was fine at the Breakers the day of the wedding. It was a day filled with energy and excitement for Nick and Wilhelmina. Right from the start of the day the bridesmaids and groomsmen were ready to have a good time. After the ceremony everybody brought that state of mind back to the reception hall for a fun party. It might have been contagious or maybe everybody came to party, ready to let loose, but either way it was a fantastic celebration! I think Wilhelmina and Nick had a tough time topping that party on New Year’s Eve. They went into the New Year with wonderful memories of very special day.
We are very proud to announce that we have won the Bride's Choice Award from Wedding Wire for the third year in a row!!! Check out our reviews on Wedding Wire.
Here is a look at Stevie and Jeff’s wedding. It was a wonderful day for them both. They put a lot of planning into the day and it all came together for them. After their ceremony we went to Deep Cut Gardens for some pictures with their really fun bridal party. Then off to The Navesink Country Club for the reception. We decided to do some photos near a very picturesque barn. While we were picking our spot something happened that was a first for me. As we were about to start we kicked a yellow jacket nest. Fortunately we saw the cloud of insects just in time. We got out of there fast! We didn’t get away clean, Jeff got stung twice. That didn’t even slow him down!! He was determined to have the photos that he and Stevie wanted in front of the barn. So we picked a different spot far away from the yellow jackets and took the photos. Jeff never stopped smiling and because of that neither did Stevie. They went on to have a rocking party! They never stopped dancing and neither did their family and friends. What a day!
Christine and Jarrett had a wonderful wedding day down at the Jersey shore. They had their ceremony on the beach at Sandy Hook and Reception at the Seagull's Nest celebrating the whole day with family and friends. They could not have asked for a better day.
Gloria and Robert did something a little different for their wedding. The ceremony took place in a field in front of a pond full of koi. Then we went to their barn to do some photographs. The wedding had a very "country" feel to it right down to the boots Gloria wore. Then they had a little change for the reception. Well, Gloria did anyway.
