tara + zac // new jersey wedding photographer

I can’t wait to show you these images, friends! I had the absolute best time photographing Tara + Zac’s wedding, not only because everything was executed so perfectly, or because the bridal party was amazing + lots of fun, or even because their families are incredibly sweet, but because Tara + Zac are so in love and so perfect for each other. This wedding day was filled with so many happy tears, laughter and love…


Hiiiiiiii Tara!



Tara’s details were perfection.

On our way to the first look location Tara ran in to her nanny’s sister, and the tears just flowed.



Pretty much everyone broke down when they saw Tara, including Zac’s dad (and Tara’s new father-in-law!)



Friends, this is Zac. He’s the best.

The boys..

Tara + her grandfather. Tara’s grandfather was telling her that her nanny would’ve wanted to be here but that she was here with her in spirit, and anyone within earshot was in tears (myself included).



That walk down the aisle..

Tara was either laughing or crying or doing both.

Mr. & Mrs. Coppola!



The families congratulating each other. Oh, my heart.



After the ceremony we took a few portraits before the sunset and the light was perfection..
