Beth and I have been a little stressed in preparation for our wedding next weekend, so it was a great relief to spend a weekend away. We left Friday morning and spent the day surfing, eating clam chowder and lobster rolls and hanging out with my friend Aaron who lives in Rhode Island. The next morning we took the ferry to Block Island to meet the groom – my good friend Jon. We checked into our hotel which was right at the ferry dock and were off to explore the island, surf and photograph him as he got ready for the wedding ceremony. It was a great time on a beautiful island. We scored awesome waves right in front of his rental house and were blown away by the scenery as we made some photos of him getting ready. The wedding went off smoothly, and the reception and after party went until late in the night. We can’t wait to go back.

Yup, this is where they’re spending the rest of their time on the island. I’m jealous.
Kim and Dexter got married at the Channel Club in Monmouth Beach, NJ back on June 12. With a little luck, the rain held off for their ceremony on the dock. We were able to get aboard a yacht docked at the club for a few photos after the ceremony – so a big thank you to the owners of the “Katie J”. Also thanks to my second shooter Adam Jones and my fiance for not killing me for working on her birthday!
This weekend I took a long drive up to the Poconos to second shoot for my good friend Jon Nimerfroh. Mark and Melissa are friends of his, and he surprised them by having me come as a second shooter – and they were excited! The wedding and reception was held at Erharts Inn and Restaurant which is on Lake Wallenpaupack. It was a beautiful spot for a wedding and made Jon and my job that much easier.
Melissa’s family is from Spain, so Mark thought he’d try a little Spanish during his vows. See the photos below of the ceremony to see how it worked out.
