New Jersey Bride Magazine

In addition to the beautiful feature of Luisa and Jeff’s wedding in the current issue of New Jersey Bride Magazine I also had allot of stock images featured. I’d just like to give thanks to the creative professional that provided “things” for me to photograph.
Tara and Daniel Dean had this image of their first dance at Florentine Gardens in River Vale, NJ selected before they even saw their proofs.
I love this grape and eggplant centerpiece by Laurence Craig Catering of Maplewood, NJ. Who needs a florist when you have a creative caterer?
Margot and Daniel found these charming tuxedo place cards with the help of their wedding planner Jennifer Orsini of Pampered Bride Weddings in Garwood, NJ

Paulina + Bill 05.12.07

Congratulations to Paulina and Bill on the lovely feature article of their wedding in Philadelphia Wedding magazine. I LOVED her beautiful Monique Lhuillier gown with the unique green sash and Bills matching green tie. Perfect for a Spring day!She had her green Christian Louboutin bridal shoes made to match her sash. Did you know that Christian Louboutin makes a special blue sole shoe for your wedding? That’s a real special “something blue”. Her food presentation was an absolute work of art by Peachtree & Ward Catering I’m a real “foodie” and I must admit, it tasted as good as it looked. It was the first time I worked with event planner, Beka Nave of Innove Events of Philadelphia. She was such fun to work with and kept the day running so smoothly. Her partner at Innove, Melody Appel designed the invitations.

Welcome to My World

A New Year and the birth of a blog. I’m so excited about my new blog. I do so many beautiful, creative weddings each year and it’s been impossible to share them all on my web site Art of Love. This blog is for all those “fans” who have followed the work on my web site over the years. I often get emails asking for MORE! Well, my blog will be a place where I can share with everyone all the amazing weddings I do each year. 2008 is going to be a very amazing year for me. I have already been commissioned to photograph 30 weddings, and I’m sure there will be more to come. What amazing weddings they are!!! I can’t wait to start sharing. The warmth and creativity of the couples who choose me to document their day always humbles me. They provide me with a wonderland of emotion and beauty that for an artist is a joy to photograph. I’m really excited about having a place to share their exciting day with you. I also plan to share a few “snippets” from my personal life. My family, my friends and my travels. I wisely blocked out some time this summer for a wonderful trip to London and Paris with my grandson Zac! It’s his first trip abroad and I’m sure we will have some great images to share. I plan to post updates on this weekly, so be make sure to subscribe if you would like an email about updates. Wishing you all a Happy, healthy and joyous New Year! Peace!
