[Wedding] Melissa & Steve – Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, NJ

When Steve first introduced himself to Karis several years ago, it can be hard to say what his true intentions were:
  1. Was he doing some recon/research for using our services in the future?
  2. Was he offering himself to us to abuse work as a photography assistant/slave for the next several years?
  3. Was he really that big of a camera nerd, and was actually genuinely interested in Karis’ camera/lens/light setup that day?
Over the years of getting to know Steve both professionally and personally, the evidence probably points to a little bit of “all of the above” :). Whatever the case may be, Karis and I have had the pleasure of having Steve (and Melissa!) in our lives, and we’re super grateful that this guy had the courage to chat up a menacing-looking Asian lady in work mode. These two lovebirds are genuinely awesome individuals, and some of the hardest working and down-to-earth people we know. So how do you photograph someone who literally knows all your jokes, techniques and methods? I’m not quite sure either – but I’ll have to say it’s super handy photographing a fellow photographer who knows what we need! This wedding was two years in the making, and took place at Our Lady of Consolation Church in Wayne, followed by a wonderful wedding reception at the One and Only Westmount Country Club!
