The November 2014 Dunne family portrait in Madison!

Dean Michaels Studio loved having the Dunne family, adorable siblings Chloe and Brady, come visit our Madison studio for a great holiday portrait sitting last month! We’re thrilled the family loves the photos and used them for a fantastic Christmas card this year, too.

Jenna & Frank’s August 2014 wedding at the Ramsey Country Club!!!

Dean Michaels Studio had a fantastic time being a part of Jenna and Frank’s summer wedding this past August. Jenna got ready for the day at her family home in New Milford, NJ, while Frank got ready at his home in Fair Lawn, NJ. From there, the two were reunited at the altar of Saint Anthony’s Church (in Northvale, NJ) for their wedding ceremony, before heading over to the Ramsey Country Club (in Ramsey, NJ), for both their formals and reception! If you want to see more fabulous photos of the newlyweds, be sure to check out their engagement shoot from last year, too!

Their proposal story: According to Jenna, “On Frank’s first trip to Disney, he planned to propose to me. He set it up at Cinderella’s Royal Table Restaurant, where the ring was displayed in a glass slipper!”

Memories from the wedding: According to Frank, he had a cute moment right before the ceremony when the doors were closed – he could see his bride-to-be peeking through the glass!

Other special details for the couple: The number 2 is special for the couple. Not only is Frank’s birthday January 2nd, but Jenna’s is April 2nd. That made choosing their wedding date (August 2nd) super easy – and memorable!

Karla & Helio’s July 2014 wedding at The Manor!!!

Dean Michaels Studio had a fun time photographing Karla & Helio’s July wedding earlier this year :) Our bride got ready surrounded by her girls (and our New Jersey wedding photographers) at her home in Montclair, NJ, before meeting her groom to exchange vows at a beautiful ceremony at Saint Catherine of Siena Church (in Cedar Grove, NJ). From there, the newlyweds made their way over to The Manor (in West Orange, NJ), where we snapped some cute formal photos of them with their bridal party before heading inside to capture the couple during their reception!
