Gina & Jeffrey’s April 2014 Hoboken engagement shoot!!!

Dean Michaels Studio had a great time shooting Gina and Jeffrey in Hoboken, NJ for their engagement shoot earlier this month! We got some lovely shots of the happy couple in and around the city (including some fun shots at Teak on the Hudson, where they had their first date :D), and ended the shoot with some fantastic shots of the two football fans goofing around in the park.

Jennifer & John were married at the Westmount Country Club in March 2014!

- Everyone here at the studio loves a great Buzzfeed list, especially when it has to do with wedding photography, so it was great to see that their list of 29 Adorable Ways To Include Your Pet In Your Wedding was not only full of fantastic ideas, but some adorable photos too!
- Our good friends over at NJWedding.com reminded us of one of their wonderful blogs featuring 10 Reasons To Get Married In New Jersey, and of course we just had to share!
- We always have fun reading a great blog over at The Knot, and one of their newest features was talking about 13 Photography Trends that they’ve been seeing lately; definitely go take a look!
- Finally, we found an article on Pickchur that had some gorgeous photos featuring artist Susie MacMurray’s stunning bridal gown designs. They’re so creative and interesting, we couldn’t pass up a chance to share them.

All of these links have been shared on our Facebook page too, and we’re looking forward to finding and sharing some of our favorite wedding links again soon!

Lauren’s March 2014 surprise birthday party at the Above Rooftop!

Dean Michaels Studio was so happy to hear from Chris regarding his wife’s birthday (we shot his and Lauren’s wedding back in 2006), that we couldn’t wait to be a part of Lauren’s surprise birthday party! All of their guests had a blast at the Above Rooftop at the Hilton Garden Inn Staten Island (in Staten Island, NY), and the surprises continued for the birthday girl when there was a special appearance by Drita D’Avanzo from VH1′s original series Mob Wives! All in all, it was a wonderful night, and our New Jersey event photographers were thrilled to be a part of it!
