As a New Jersey Event Photographer, I work with people that do small events from 2 up to 5 hours. I love those events, they are not that long and very casual in many ways. This is also a great way for me to get out of the studio and also allows me to explore New Jersey a way that I would never do it my self.
What I noticed when I work in Small Events in New Jersey is no matter what the budget is on the event, the most important thing is details. When there are details, there are more photographs to photograph and more memories to capture. When there are details, the guests are happier and they truly understand how much work goes to create those beautiful pieces. When there are details, overall, your whole Event looks amazing and as Event Photographer its a pleasure to photograph. Many events are slow in a way for me because people come to celebrate and also to catch up with each other. Many people just sit and talk and eat, not that many actions are going on unless it’s a small children’s birthday. Anything like baby showers and bridal showers is a slow pace event and it gives me a chance to photographs the details much better. So if your slow pace event isn’t decorated enough, photographs become more boring and you don’t want to remember your baby shower or your bridal shower as a boring event. Get your creative head on and ask your friends and sisters to help you out and get your glue guns and get to work!
So here is my second memorable Bridal Shower, I have done in a couple of years. Mother of the bride is a very creative woman and what helped her was that her daughter is obsessed with Chanel, so it was easier to pick the color theme also, daughter always wanted to do something in that location which was just amazing. The place was Liberty House Restaurant in Jersey City NJ. Looking towards Manhattan, I am sure this place is stunning at night but we were lucky enough to have such a beautiful, warm, May day in the middle of October. The sky was clear and birds were chirping and the music was playing some jazz. The place it self-had many windows and white walls which helped me with my natural light photographs. The scene and the vibe of the whole place were spectacular!
