This spring has brought some really cool non-wedding events. Allison’s Quinceañera was absolutely awesome and it was a pleasure to see such a wonderful young woman celebrate her 15th birthday with family and friends!

Allison’s big day started at St. Gerard Majella Church in Paterson, NJ with a nice, intimate ceremony for Allison’s family and close friends.

After the ceremony, we went to Lambert’s Castle with Allison, her parents, and her court to take some shots in front of this gorgeous building.

Then it was time to party! Allison’s parents had planned an awesome reception at The Tides Estate, with entertainment provided by Posh Entertainment.

Allison and her court had choreographed a fun dance to entertain all the guests and they definitely got the house rocking!

To close the night, and in honor of her heritage, Allison and her Chamberlain, Walter, performed a traditional Peruvian dance in beautiful costumes.

Allison: felicitationes y felix cumpleaños! It was an absolute pleasure to document your special day and see the beautiful young woman you have become. Congratulations!

Jessica had a Sweet 16 party for all time and looked absolutely beautiful on her big day. This young lady is truly remarkable and well on her way to becoming a superstar. At age 16, Jessica has already won the title of Miss Monmouth County’s Outstanding Teen, was the 1st runner-up in the Miss New Jersey’s Outstanding Teen, acted in the movie James White with Cynthia Nixon, sang Amazing Grace at the 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony in NJ, and performed a piano solo at Carnegie Hall.

Jessica’s Sweet 16 was held at Addison Park , an absolutely exquisite venue in New Jersey. The event was run by Royal Entertainment Productions and they did an amazing job at providing great music and making sure all the guests were having a great time. Now, on to the photos!

Jessica, we want to thank you and your family for having us take your Sweet 16 photographs. You are an amazing young lady who is beautiful inside and out. You are well on your way to stardom. As your uncle, I (Pak) am extremely proud of the amazing person you have grown up to be and still remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. Keep on moving upwards, young lady!

Dana and Prashant’s Waterside Restaurant wedding was an American followup to their wedding ceremony they had in India. We were honored to be called upon to photograph their wedding celebration since Pak and Prashant are very good friends from their high school days. We started off at the house where Dana was getting ready and right off the bat, we were able to pull off a stunning backlit hair spray photo.

After Dana was ready, it was time to head over to the catering hall for a splendid outdoor ceremony.  We had been coordinating a few days prior to the wedding anticipating a downpour that day but as luck would have it, the rain held off for Dana and Prashant so that they could have their outdoor wedding as planned.  The ceremony was officiated by Prashant’s close friend David who also went to high school with Pak.

After the ceremony, it was party time!  As photographers, we always love it when the couple dances so much as Dana and Prashant during their party!

Dana and Prashant, it was truly an honor to photograph your wedding.  It was also a pleasure getting to know both of your families and to witness all the genuine joy, humor, and closeness.  We wish both of you the best.
