As soon as Tatum, Andrew and myself were put in touch I think we all sensed that we were going to make some magic together. After only a phone conversation and a few emails I already felt like we were old friends when I arrived to photograph their wedding this past September. Not only were the couple and their bridal party laid back and super-fun to work with but the universe was also on our side that day. Case in point: only moments after Tatum and Andrew saw each other for the first time on the dynamic Asbury Park boardwalk, a street musician set the mood with his own acoustic version of Eric Claptonâ€™s Wonderful Tonight which our couple danced to in their own dreamy world. Tatum told me later that she felt like she was in a romantic movie scene – a moment that will remain ever special to her!
With all of our feet back on the ground and a few more snaps of our kick-ass couple it was then my turn with our groomsmen at the historic Stone Pony music venue. After posing outside we wondered if they would let us shoot inside; we figured â€œWhy not? Weâ€™ll ask.â€ and for those of you not yet aware, people will always say yes on your wedding day. For this rat-pack group of musicians having the opportunity to pose on this iconic stage was *almost* as good as playing on it. They brought their A-game and I, in turn, got some of my favorite groomsmen photos to date.
CANâ€™T. HANDLE. THE AWESOMENESS.
I also had to include the cutest ring bearer and flower girl ever; â€˜cause who doesnâ€™t love photos of adorable kids? Â
