Shadowbrook Wedding in Shrewsbury, NJ – Annie + Brian

Annie & Brian’s Shadowbrook wedding in Shrewsbury, NJ was a wedding to never forget!  I photographed Annie & Brian’s GTKY session at Princeton University and loved working with them.  Annie is so happy, bubbly and positive while Brian is cool laid back and shares my common dry wit. We got along amazingly. They had their preps in a nearby hotel and the bridal party was an absolute crazy fun group!  We had a little dance party mix after the bride got dressed that you can see in the BTS video.

Two reveals at Shadowbrook wedding!

I love having first looks but two is another level! The first was Annie’s father seeing her for the first time in her wedding dress.   This one always gets me as your father seeing you on the first time is very emotional to me. Because I always imagine my daughter on that day.   Secondly, Brian was able to have a private reveal with Annie off to the side garden area where there were no other people.  It was beautiful!

Bridal Portraits at Shadowbrook Wedding

On to the portraits!  This is where I crack my knuckles and dig into some light, natural artistic insanity with a group of equally fun and insane people.  I really loved working with this group, they were exciting, fun crazy and just like my good friend Katie’s company DFW (Down For Whatever)! Annie strutted her stuff with her simple bouquet of Call Lilies and we rocked these spring wedding portraits at Shadowbrook at Schrewsbury.

It is a long day so I have to keep my energy up to keep the couples interested 😉 Brian is obviously tired of my light metering! haha

Indoor Ceremony at Shadowbrook wedding

Brian’s father was actually a pastor and very religious man that performed the ceremony.  Shadowbrook had a beautiful indoor ceremony location in the venue if the weather is not accommodating outdoors.  I love the giant windows that backlight the ceremony and the rich ornate wood that surrounds the room.

Reception at Shadowbrook Wedding

What do you get when you mix alcohol, fun people and loud music? “100% pure adrenalin.”  ~ Patrick Swayze, Point Break.  Damn we had a good day and I always love photographing a Shadowbrook wedding!  The staff is so nice and they even called to thank us when we sent them some stuff. I wish the awesome Annie and Brian a lifetime of happiness together as they deserve it.
