Allison + Michael 01.05.08

One of the challenges of winter weddings can be finding the time and locations for outdoor portraits. Some of my couples, like Allison and Michael what the romantic notion of not seeing each other prior to their ceremony, yet they still want fun location portraits. We were limited to about 15 minutes of daylight after their ceremony at Saint James Church in Basking Ridge, NJ, so we ran around to the back parking lot of their church and found a field of reeds. What luck! I also used the beautiful green door of their church as a backdrop for a portrait just before the sun set. On the way to their reception at The Westin Governor Morris in Morristown, NJ we also stopped by the historic Morristown Train Station for some really romantic images. I know I’m dating myself, but the station was featured in Cyndi Lauper’s Time After Time video.


  • Nice portraits Marie! I'm always inspired by your visions. I hope we can get together soon for lobster! jab
