The Rosewood, New Jersey

Meagan & Nick/ weddings
at last ~ September 8th, 2012

It all started back in the summer of 2011 when Meagan & Nick & I spent the afternoon traipsing around Central Park rocking out their e-session photos ~ if you haven't seen them yet you really should check them out at: http://suzannesutcliffephotograpy.blogspot.com/2011/10/meagan-nick-e-session.html.  Then for the year in between our e-session & her wedding Meagan continued to light up my FB pages with her sweet comments. But now, I am HER biggest fan for being the coolest bride! They were true to form brimming with chemistry and spunk all day, but their true colors really shone through when they totally kept their cool as we watched a HUGE thunderstorm rolling in on us at the beginning of our long awaited photo session out on the city streets... we ran for cover as the wind & rain engulfed the neighborhood and determined to make the best of it, ended up creating some of my favorite images from the year under the train trestle... they turned a downpour into a smoldering hot photo shoot! Thank you guys for all your enthusiasm, trust & good times! Also a big nod to my trusty side kick Courtney D'ne Brown for her talent and steadfast vigilance.  Here are some details from their wedding, and also a sweet note they wrote after they saw their photos from the day... love you guys!!

Maria & Ryan /Weddings

May 2012

Maria + Ryan = Happily ever after.  These two were just meant to be together. Maria's easy smile & Ryan's quiet sincerity made their pictures vibrant and moving. And I loved capturing some of the private moments between Ryan and his son ~ the stuff I live for!  We had a great backdrop for photos right behind the Hyatt on the waterfront, which is just what Maria had imagined those many mornings as she jogged down the promenade leading up to this day... so fun to finally make that real for you Maria!  Many thanks to my dynamic and very talented team that day, Courtney D'ne Brown and Kris Rupp.  Beautiful beautiful... here are some of the details from their day :)
