Lisa + Christian, Mallard Island wedding photographer

01mallard-island-23_mckayWe have 2 sets of congratulations to go out here! First an foremost, we’d like to congratulate Lisa Jacobs and Christian Cantatore, who were married at the beautiful Mallard Island Yacht Club this past August 2nd! We wish we could have been there! Which brings us to our second shout out! Congrats to Brandi, the newest member of the very talented McKay Imaging family of photographers! This was Brandi’s first wedding for us and as you can see, she really captured the beauty and emotion of the day. We are so happy to have her with us, both as a friend and a colleague.
So, we hereby raise our glasses and toast a couple of “firsts” and wish everyone nothing but the best of luck in the future!02mckay_mallard-island-yacht-03mallard-island-1_mckay04mallard-island-13_mckay05mallard-island-4_mckay06mallard-island-7_mckay07mallard-island-6_mckay08mallard-island-8_mckay09mallard-island-5_mckaymallard-island_getting-read11mallard-island-3_mckay12mallard-island-12_mckay13mallard-island-14_mckay14mallard-island-2_mckay15mallard-island-15_mckay16mallard-island-16_mckay17mallard-island-19_mckay18mallard-island-17_mckay19mallard-island-21_mckay20mallard-island-20_mckay21mallard-island-22_mckay22mallard-island-24_mckay23mallard-island-29_mckay24mallard-island-yach-club-425mallard-island-yach-club-526mallard-island-yach-club-127mallard-island-26_mckay28mallard-island-27_mckay29mallard-island-30_mckay30mallard-island-28_mckay31mallard-island-yach-club-232mallard-island-yach-club-333mallard-island-9_mckay34mallard-island-yach-club-636mallard-island-yach-club-837mallard-island-yach-club-938mallard-island-yach-club-1439mallard-island-yach-club-1140mallard-island-yach-club-1041mallard-island-yach-club-1242mallard-island-yach-club-1343mallard-island-yach-club-1544mallard-island-wedding-145mallard-island-wedding-246mallard-island-wedding-347mallard-island-wedding-748mallard-island-wedding-549mallard-island-wedding-650mallard-island-wedding-451mallard-island-wedding-8

Ashley + Marc, Molly Pitcher wedding photographer

1deepcut-gardens-4_mckayCongratulations to Ashley White and Marc Messiha for making a lot of great decisions about their wedding day! First of all they chose each other… nice move. Next they choose the venues and the date and July 26th was a nearly perfect day for their ceremony at St. Mary’s Chapel, their portraits at Deep Cut Park and of course their Molly Pitcher reception as well. Then, among many other thoughtful details, they chose our wonderful friend and associate Sara to capture their day in photographs, the results of which you can see below. Big thanks you’s go out to Ashley, Marc and their families from all of us at McKay Imaging. We are so happy to have been a part of your wedding day…!1amckay_shoes2mckay_make-up3mckay_get-dressed4mckay_heart5mckay_earring6mckay_groom-ready7mckay_groom-portrait8molly-pitcher-inn_guys9mckay_bride-portrait10mckay_dad11mckay_brides-maids12mckay_flowers13mckay_st-msry-chapel14mckay_st-mary-chapel-arrival15mckay_ceremony-416mckay_ceremony-217mckay_ceremony-518mckay_ceremony-119mckay_ceremony-620mckay_ceremony-321mckay_church22mckay_st-mary's-chapel-223deepcut-gardens-7_mckay24deepcut-gardens-1_mckay25deepcut-gardens-2_mckay26deepcut-gardens-5_mckay27deepcut-gardens-6_mckay28deepcut-gardens-3_mckay29deepcut-gardens-8_mckay30deepcut-gardens-17_mckay31deepcut-gardens-13_mckay32deepcut-gardens-14_mckay33deepcut-gardens-11_mckay34deepcut-gardens-16_mckay35deepcut-gardens-10_mckay36deepcut-gardens-15_mckay37deepcut-gardens-9_mckay38deepcut-gardens-12_mckay39molly-pitcher-inn_reception-140molly-pitcher-inn_reception-341molly-pitcher-inn_reception-242molly-pitcher-inn_reception-443molly-pitcher-inn_reception-544molly-pitcher-inn_reception-645molly-pitcher-inn_reception-746molly-pitcher-inn_reception-1047molly-pitcher-inn_reception-948molly-pitcher-inn_reception-1149molly-pitcher-inn_reception-1250molly-pitcher-inn_reception-8

Tom + Caitlin, Oyster Point Hotel wedding photographer

01deepcut gardens_mckay-40We love when we get to once again photograph a wedding for a family that we have worked with before! Such is the case with the wedding that you see below, that of Caitlin Dubois to Thomas Maffiore and at that wedding, we got to hang out with Steven and Elizabeth DuBois/Reinfurt whose wedding we had photographed on a very hot summer day, some 2 years earlier! Bonus!
Caitlin & Tom’s wedding day began with a time of thoughtful preparation and ended with the big bang that only the band Mission Dance can provide, all at The Oyster Point Hotel, in Red Bank; but in between, the couple and their large entourage traversed the Navesink River to get officially hitched at the quaint and beautiful St. Mary’s Chapel and then to take some photos in the splendor of Deep Cut Gardens, both in Middletown.
Tender thoughtful moments, familiar faces, exciting music, heartfelt promises, family and friends, delicious food and a feeling of togetherness! That’s what this wedding was and we’d like to thank the DuBois & Maffiore families for once again including us! Congratulations go out to all!02oyster point hotel_mckay-104oyster point hoteln_mckay-705oyster point hotel_mckay-603oyster point hotel_mckay-306oyster point hotel_mckay-807oyster point hotel_mckay-908oyster point hoteln_mckay-209oyster point hoteln_mckay-410oyster point hoteln_mckay-511oyster point hotel_mckay-1012oyster point hotel_mckay-1113oyster point hoteln_mckay-1414oyster point hotel_mckay-1215oyster point hotel_mckay-1616oyster point hoteln_mckay-1717oyster point hotel_mckay-1918oyster point hotel_mckay-2219oyster point hotel_mckay-1820oyster point hoteln_mckay-2021oyster point hotel_mckay-2422oyster point hotel_mckay-2123oyster point hotel_mckay-2324oyster point hotel_mckay-25a25long branch trolley_mckay-2626long-branch-trolley_mckay27deepcut gardens_mckay-2828deepcut gardens_mckay-3429deepcut gardens_mckay-3630deepcut gardensn_mckay-3031deepcut gardens_mckay-2732deepcut gardens_mckay-2933deepcut gardens_mckay-3334deepcut gardens_mckay-3935deepcut gardens_mckay-3736deepcut gardensn_mckay-3537deepcut gardens_mckay-3838deepcut gardens_mckay-4139oyster-point-hotel_mckay-4240oyster-point-hotel_mckay_4441oyster-point-hotel-4342oyster-point-hotel_mckay_4543oyster-point-hotel_mckay_4644oyster-point-hotel_mckay_5345oyster-point-hotel_mckay_4746oyster-point-hotel_mckay_5247oyster-point-hotel_mckay_5148oyster-point-hotel_mckay_50

Beautiful photos. I have seen hundreds of wedding pictures and these are among the very best.

Chrissy + Brad, Molly Pitcher Inn, Red Bank wedding photographer


All summer long we’ve had the most incredible weather; Chrissy and Brad’s wedding day at the Molly Pitcher Inn was no exception! They both live in the city and met while working in the fashion industry for Ralph Lauren (a couple of Polo bears couldn’t be amiss that day!). Chrissy looked just stunning in her sweet flowing W Too wedding gown and Brad looked so sharp in a blue Brunello Cucinelli suit – did I mention they both work in fashion ; ). The ceremony on the deck of the Molly overlooking the Navasink River was so bright and cheerful – Chrissy and Brad were surrounded by a sea of sunflowers…
I am sure all the guest are still talking about the lively party with some hot latin interludes performed by Brad’s Argentinian mother and brother and the wild dancing to the
music provided with style by Elite Entertainment- all happening under a super moon!
Chrissy and Brad – congratulations to you and your families – we shared a wonderful day with you!
