Mela’s June 2014 graduation portrait at Montclair State University!

Dean Michaels Studio was super excited when Mela contacted us when it was time to take her graduation portrait last month. Our New Jersey portrait photographers were so excited to spend time with the new alumna at her alma mater of Montclair State University (in Montclair, NJ), and we couldn’t wait to share some of the shoot with everyone!

Meghan & Adam’s May 2014 wedding at McLoone’s Pier House – the Round 4 winners of our Best of Weddings 2014!!!

Dean Michaels Studio is very happy to announce Meghan & Adam as the winners of Round 4 of our Best of Weddings 2014 Facebook Contest!!! Our New Jersey photographers started the beautiful spring day with the bride as she got ready at the Sheraton Eatontown Hotel (in Eatontown, NJ), before meeting up with the groom to sign the ketubah at McLoone’s Pier House (in Long Branch, NJ). After a gorgeous ceremony on the beach, followed by some adorable formals, it was back to McLoone’s for the happy couple’s reception.
This was the toughest round yet, with not only the most votes so far, but with the closest competition (Meghan & Adam got nearly 130 likes on their sampler, and won by just 16!); we’re so excited to see how they’ll fair at the end of the year versus past round winners Katherine & Tyler, Jennifer & John, and Natalie & John!

And don’t forget to check out their album on Facebook!
