Hot!  With temperatures reaching mid 90′s and feeling more like 100 degrees on the east coast, Pauline & Kenny could not have picked a better day to bet married on the water at the Channel club in Monmouth beach, NJ.  The ceremony overlooking the marina was incredible, the reception was non stop dancing and then we were off to the beach to take a dip!

As the sounds of Jimmy Buffett floated down the streets of Burlington I had the pleasure of shooting Steph & Deans engagement session.  As we walked amongst the local street festival we were stopped repeatedly by Police and Firefighters who wished them well.  Dean being a Firefighter himself, stopped and talked with his friends and colleagues as I continued to shoot.  Steph and Dean talked to the owner of Ummm Ice Cream Palor who said they would be open in September and we could come back on their wedding day to photographs inside the quaint ol  time atmosphere.  Its going to be a fun day, we are really looking forward to your wedding day!

Well the Rain almost held off… Not 5 min after we started shooting at Sayen Gardens in Hamilton NJ did it start raining.  I felt two drops and thought, we would have time to work towards cover, I was mistaken.  The skies went from semi-clear to down pour in less than 30 seconds.  By the time we made it to a gazebo we were all completely soaked.  Fourtunatly in less than 20 min the skies cleared an we were able to get what we needed.   Kenny and Pauline are so much fun.  We just waited for Pauline’s hair and clothes to dry and we were back in business.  Their wedding is coming up in the early June, it is going to be a blast.  We are planning a beach shoot after the reception, complete with some frolicking in the surf.

The first show that I ever went to was in 1984 to see Van Halen with David Lee Roth.  I never would have thought that 24 years later, with my son, I would get to see them again.  Lola got ticket a few months ago for the Atlantic City Board Walk hall, the show was originally canceled, they finally made it here last night.  First off Boardwalk Hall is quite the place to see a show!  I literally parked and was drinking a beer in my seat in less than 10 min.  As for Van Halen….. I had no idea what to expect, David Lee is back (and in incredible shape), Wolfie (Eddies son) on bass 24 years later… The show was full of energy and sounded really good.  Edie still can make a guitar scream, when you see them live you really see  how everything is built around his guitar playing.  During his Solo (eruption) I watched Bobby and he just stared at the big screen watching Edie’s hands in awe.  Wolfie can tear the friggin bass up,  obviously he got the gig because of his dad, but he sounded really good (Michael Anthony who) and he also sang backup for every song.  The only complaint I had was that I forgot how dam goofy David Lee Roth is.  I recently saw the Foo Fighters and front man David Grohl had a charismatic, humbling, laid back demeanor, Roth on the other hand is from a different era of flamboyant antics.  With that being said the dude is in incredible shape, his actually ripped, I really didnt want to see his ripped stomach, but read last few sentences about flamboyant front man ship.  Just to many high kicks for me!  Bobby loved the whole show, and that means more to me than anything.  This shot is taken with my iPhone (reduced by 50%)  camera kicks ass.
