After a super successful 'Great Gatsby style' engagement session we shot with Jessica and John this past fall (click here to see!) I was pretty darn excited for their wedding. It was perfectly glamorous- starting with my gorgeous Bride (how amazing was her hair style?!), handsome Groom, all florals, shoes, jewelry, gorgeous bridesmaids, little girls' head pieces, dapper looking guys, and incredibly decorated venue- Nanina's in The Park. Little Enzo, couple's Shih Tzu, stopped by the church after ceremony, all suave in his tux and a top hat- aww!
Thank you to my team: Geri Nelson and Chiu Mei.
Church: Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark NJ.
Reception Venue: Nanina's in the Park
Videographer: Love in Progress
Erica is such a lucky girl!
Stunning & unique, with impeccable, sophisticated taste, and, she found her love in Billy.
Her dream day at Cape May's Southern Mansion started with hopeless, drizzly skies , covered in thick, gray layer of heavy clouds and really bad weather reports. Erica still hoped for an outdoor ceremony, and, miraculously, the clouds departed, giving us a window of time to stroll through quaint, Victorian streets of the town, admiring pastel painted mansions.
The skies opened during dinner. Sun came out shortly afterwards, and once again, we lucked out capturing Erica & Bill walking on a wet walkways around the mansion lit by the amazing post- storm light!
Erica's dress and shoes were to die for!
Lots of fantastic details, antique furniture (from Magpie), and sweet personal touches.
My awesome and lovely second shooter was Jen Woodruff. Selection of images from both of us below.

One beautiful day in early May Michelle and Rob were joined forever!
Westmount provided a splendid venue for a fantastic party.
Geri and I loved documenting it all.
Once again, I get to photograph the prettiest brides ever! Or the best looking couples! Nicole and Dan were no exception.
Nicole and Dan had their very romantic, sweet and intimate 'first look' at the Philadelphia's Washington Square Park and got married surrounded by striking architecture, and elegant simplicity of Le Meridien hotel accompanied by their gorgeous daughter Amara, family and friends.
My amazingly talented second shooter was Nadine of Love me Do Photography, and we were assisted by Tom, who also captured many awesome images.
Rare, special, luxe and limited offer from Monika Broz for a Photography Session with your love this spring!

You ask- why a photo session with your lover?
Because Spring offers gentle breezes, and showers of never-sweeter fragrant petals. Because you are quite mad about one another, and your story needs to be told in haunting, ecstatic, sensual pictorials. Because you are wondrous, and beautiful, and wild. Because the gardens are lush with blushing peonies, the daffodil-speckled fields are calling, some buildings are gleaming while others are crumbling, covered with seductive, distressed spots of brilliant color and texture, providing a fete for the eye and abackdrop for your photographs. Because your love is ethereal, but its tiny gestures - the subtle brush of your lips, the grip of your hungry hands, and your sexy hair cascading luxuriantly over the face of your love - caress the senses in such glorious ways,and are so down to earth, and full of gravity, and precious and immortal, and need to be be captured so badly. Because seeing your photos with your love, your family, and your friends will be like looking into the heart of light, the truth, the silence, the symphony. And because you two amaze me, and I feel adventurous this spring.
