I shot this image at Sadia & Zohaib's Pakistani wedding at the Villa at Mountain Lakes. To be exact, this image was about a 2 minute drive from the venue. I would have never imagined that I would come across a white sand beach in NJ, especially in November! As luck would have it I stumbled upon this gem of a spot as I was driving around scouting for locations for the bride and groom photos. The bride had mentioned there was a lake near the venue where they wanted to take pictures. Although I have worked at this venue before, I was not familiar with the area because the last time I was here we did pictures indoors. Since I arrived at the venue early, I decided to do some location scouting and stumbled upon this scenic spot which I knew would be perfect for pictures. It definitely pays off to arrive early at a venue to do location scouting. If it wasn't for me arriving early, I would not of had the time to find this beautiful location. This beautiful spot (named Island Beach) was a quick 2 minute drive from the venue. This exact location wasn't visible from the parking lot, so I had to do a little walking in the cold to find it--the extra effort definitely paid off! As your photographer you can be assured that I will go the extra mile so you have breathtaking images to cherish forever and ever! The white sand almost looked like snow which really brought a wow factor to the image, coupled with the tree which added another dimension of beauty. I would definitely love to shoot here again the next time I work at this venue.
