[Engagement] Melissa & Steve – Montclair, NJ

If you recognize this fella, it’s probably because you’ve seen that face a few dozen times via our random behind-the-scenes posts on Facebook this past year or so. That’s right folks! Steve is one of our associate photographers at Pearl Paper Studio, and he finally got a taste of what it was like to be on the other side of the camera with yours truly! If you are one of our clients, or work with me on a regular basis, you’ll know that much of the laughter and smiles come naturally as a result of my 10-15 minute comedy routine (which really hasn’t changed in the past 3-4 years). But when you’ve heard these jokes several hundred times already (ie. Karis…or Steve), those 10-15 minutes could quite possibly feel like an eternity. Lucky for us, Melissa’s never heard any of my jokes…so I convinced myself that I was pretty much halfway there. And of course, I’d like to think of myself as a glass-is-half-full kinda guy :). We first met Steve & Melissa at another wedding in 2013. We haven’t been able to shake them off ever since :). In the past year or so, Steve has been one of our associate photographers at Pearl Paper Studio, and we’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow as a photographer. You guys will definitely be seeing more of this guy in the future!
