First, a shout out to my dear friend Allison at Allison Anne Studios – she needed some second shooting help for a recent Cape May wedding and gave me a call. Sure! I love Cape May weddings! I had wanted to brush up on some FILM shooting techniques, so I asked her if it was alright if I brought a few rolls of film to shoot while photographing for her.
Yup – FILM! Beautiful film! There is a softness and elegance to film. There’s a subtle tone to it. Plus, there’s the release from that nagging little screen on the back of digital cameras. I love shooting film – I see more and more rolls in my future!
Thank you to Allison for letting me fire off a few rolls during her wedding shoot!

Holly and Vincent had a chilly November day with our first snow flurries of the year. I love cooler weather! I haven’t been to The Mill at Spring Lake in a long time, and it didn’t disappoint. Holly and Vincent, their friends and their family, were all just great. A fun crowd, we fit right in as we got rolling with some beautiful photos. Holly and Vincent were such an attentive couple, they photographed just awesome together. Which is why I chose this group of photos – I just wanted to highlight the two of them together!
When I first talked to Ashley and Steven on the phone and they told me they were getting married in Cape May, I though “Awesome, I love Cape May!” But once we started to talk about what kind of wedding they were going to have, I got even more excited – this was going to be just an awesome event! Casual, laid-back, intimate, elegant – everything I love. But… once I arrived in Cape May on that crystal clear October Sunday, and then saw the Peter Shields Inn, well, I was just in heaven…!!
Now, I’ll get in trouble if I don’t mention that the wedding day itself was a beautiful day, too! We started at The Carriage House in Galloway, on to St. Nicholas Tolentine in Atlantic City, made a quick stop on the AC Boardwalk, and headed back to The Carriage House for a fantastic party!
