Every now and then the creativity and uniqueness of weddings just blows me away.  When we were contacted about shooting Beth and Patrick’s wedding at YMCA Camp Ockanickon in Medford, New Jersey.  I had images of uninteresting conference rooms and high school basketball courts in my brain.  I should have known that we get MUCH cooler couples than that.

A stunningly beautiful dark haired bride, in a classic white dress,  and beautiful shades of purple everywhere, which seemed to match the crisp November air, ripe with the air of impending winter.  Homey wooden signs directing guests over a bridge and through the woods to a perfect ceremony on a sandy island with a setting sun that lit up our bride and groom and allowed us the challenge of capturing the magic of some lens flare.  God, I love that.  A lake beside a gorgeous clearing in the fields where the yellowing leaves just screamed for group photos.  A wild boxer pup with a pink leash, so in love with her human mommy bride, her excitement bordered on uncontrollable.  A cozy, warm log cabin for friends and family to dance to a rockin’ band, eat amazing food, and drink from personalized mason jars, and to wrap up the perfect camp wedding?  Smores by the campfire of course!  Perfection.
