Becky + Chris, Liberty House, New Jersey wedding photographer

01mckay_liberty-state-park-1
We met Christopher Scudieri and Becky Hamilton in December of 2013 while photographing Chris’ brother Brian’s wedding to Mary DeVito at the Hyatt way down on the lovely island of Aruba! That was an epic day as you can imagine and you can see those pictures by clicking HERE if you like…
As for Chris & Becky’s, Jersey City wedding, well… it was another EPIC day and we are going to let the pictures do the talking here people! You can see the whole story unfold right here as we went from The Westin to a nearby park for the first look and then off to Liberty State Park and the Liberty House for the rest of this amazing day…
Thanks so much to the Becky & Chris as well as the entirety of the Scudieri & Hamilton families and of course to Jeff & Lauren DeVito/Schlogl for introducing us to all of these wonderful people at your wedding, way back in 2011!
Enjoy the photos!
Happy, happy 1st Anniversary to Chris & Becky!!!

Naomi + Elan, Mallard Island Yacht Club, New Jersey wedding photographer

01mckay_mallard-island-wedding-27
One year ago today, Liz and I were at the beautiful Mallard Island Yacht Club in Manahawkin, NJ photographing the wedding of Elan Arbitsman to Naomi Schwarz! This is just their cover of course… in reality, they are both super spies! My first suspicions came when I saw Elan’s ring but once I saw the cake topper… I was sure! Happy 1st Anniversary “Elan & Naomi” !
Seriously though, we are so happy and thankful that you entrusted your wedding photography to us and we really had a great time doing it. It was a day filled with beauty, with friends and family, a splendid atmosphere and special details. The air was filled with fine music and the scent of flowers and we may never have seen such a beautiful ketubah. Thanks for providing such beautiful scenery for us and for all of your guests and for being so kind and thoughtful to us on your big day. And then of course there was that little extra air of mystery…
Don’t worry… you’re secret is safe with us. Happy Anniversary Mr. & Mrs Arbitsman (or whoever you really are) : )
Bob & Liz

Olga + Igor, Married 9.5.2015, Grounds for Sculpture wedding photographer

When Olga Duba called us in May of 2015 and told us that in September of 2015 she would be marrying Igor Boguslavsky at Grounds for Sculpture in front of about 35 of their closest family and friends, we got very excited! It would be a short but sweet 6 hour day for us and we love being included into small intimate gatherings (you can see all of the 35 guests in one of the photos below). We also love working at Grounds for Sculpture; there are so many beautiful locations there to choose from!
That was exactly one year ago today! We remember it all very well but there is still nothing like photography to really bring back warm memories… Happy 1st Anniversary to Igor & Olga! We loved sharing that beautiful day in the sculpture gardens with you both and hope that your anniversary is just as exciting! Please keep in touch… : )02mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-103mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-204mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2005mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-306mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-407mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-608mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-509mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-710Grounds-for-Sculpture-2_mckay11mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-812mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-3113Grounds-for-Sculpture-7_mckay14Grounds-for-Sculpture-4_mckay15mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-916mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1117mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1018mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1219mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1320mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1521mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1422mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1623mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1724Grounds-for-Sculpture-6_mckay25mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1826mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-1927mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2328mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2229mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-3230mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2531Grounds-for-Sculpture-5_mckay32mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2633mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2434mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-3335mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-3436Grounds-for-Sculpture-3_mckay37mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2838Grounds-for-Sculpture-1_mckay39mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-2740mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-3042mckay_grounds-for-sculpture-21

Katherine + Brad, Barnes Barn, New York wedding photographer

01mckay_barnes-barn-13
In September of 2011 we photographed the wedding of Marla Goldsmith to Sean Williams. It was a fantastic day of a million great pictures of as many great moments! I guess that the family agreed because when it came time for Marla’s brother Gary Goldsmith to tie the knot with Sarah Sommers, they called us again and in September of 2013, we found ourselves driving to Roxbury, NY to photograph their nuptials at the lovely Stone Tavern Farm! That’s where we met another handsome couple who were there as friends of the bride and groom, Brad Gallant and Katie Dittmer. As you may have already guessed, Brad and Katie loved all of those photos so much that they asked us to photograph their wedding in North Brookfield, NY on August 29th, 2015, exactly one year ago today… Happy 1st Anniversary Brad & Katie!!!
This adventure began with a 5 hour car ride and a hotel stay in the cute little college town of Hamilton, NY (home of Colgate University and one of the best little brew pubs I’ve ever been to). The next day, we found ourselves doing a bundle of our favorite things all at once… Seeing new and beautiful locations, taking pictures and seeing a lot of warm and familiar faces! Thanks for that, Brad & Katie!
The getting ready pictures took place in Hamilton and then it was off to the big event at Barnes Barn… The barn itself would be the scene for the reception later in the day but first of course came the first look, some family portraits and the beautiful ceremony, all atop a hill on the same piece of property but a full 5 minute ride from the barn, at the Barnes family home! The ceremony was amazing with the valley and hills as its backdrop.
Then of course it was time to party! A talented bluegrass band set the mood at the cocktail hour and even the groom chimed in with a serenade for his new bride… Go Brad! Brad was not bad!
Later friends and family settled into the barn for a family style dinner, a cookie bar and a good local brew or two while the DJ set quite a different mood…
Happy Anniversary Brad & Katie!!! Thanks so much for taking us along on your big adventure! We’re so glad we got to share a drink with you around the bonfire at nights end…

Susie + John, Married 8.22.2015, Clark Landing Yacht Club wedding photographer

01mckay_clarks-landing-
John Jasio married Susie Karykous one year ago today! Happy anniversary! We hope you are still honeymooning somewhere…!
Thinking back, I’m not sure what that best part of their wedding day was; the entire day was interesting and beautiful and different and stunning and… fun! Maybe it was the exotically beautiful Egyptian bride, the groomsmen’s sunglasses, the elaborate Christian Orthodox Church, the crowns, the capes or the bubbles! Perhaps it was the suspenders, the veil or the peaceful sunset over the river. Come to think of it, it was probably the beautiful details that filled the Clark’s Landing ballroom and the way that John and Susie seemed to literally dance on a cloud! But more than likely it was the photo booth costumes, the belly dancer and the sparklers! Like I said… We can’t decide!
Happy Anniversary John & Susie! We hope your having nearly as good of a day today as well!02mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-203mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-104mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-305mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1006mckay_getting-ready07mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1108mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1209mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-610mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-511mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-412mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-813mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-714mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-915mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-4016mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1417mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1318mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1519mckay_church20mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1621mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1722mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1823mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-1924mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2025mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2126mckay_spring-lake-227mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2228mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2329mckay_spring-lake-130mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2450-mckay_spring-lake-wedding32mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2633mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2734mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2835mckay_clarks-landing-236mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-2937mckay_clarks-landing-338mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3039mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3140mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3241mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3342mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3443mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3544mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3745mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3846mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3947mckay_clarks-landing-wedding-3648mckay_clarks-landing-149mckay_clarks-landing-4
