The weather gods were with us during Stef & Tiago's wedding! With the threat of slight showers looming all day... but nary a drop! Beautiful cloudy day, with a nice breeze gave way to their fairytale wedding. Everything a NJ wedding photographer could ask for.

Stef looked like a princess in her stunning gown, which fit her perfectly.... Such simple details lending an elegant ambiance. Tiago's suave suit made him look the perfect part for Stef's prince. I could go on & on... But how about you just look for yourself!

Congratulations Stephanie & Tiago! Best wishes for an amazing future together as Mr & Mrs!!


How did you two meet, and how long have you been together?

“We originally met very briefly during a middle school concert I was in. We officially became friends in 2011 when Tiago accidentally Facebook messaged me. Falling in love came very naturally to us, we have been best friends right from the start.” - Stephanie

How did he pop the question?

“During an anniversary trip to Maui, Tiago planned for us to see this very popular attraction there on Haleakala, a dormant volcano. We drove up a winding tight road 10,000 ft. We had to literally drive through the clouds to reach the top. Once we got to the top Tiago asked someone to take a “picture” of us but he actually started recording and that’s when he proposed. I said “are you serious” about 10 times before I finally said yes of course. I was in shock for quite some time. The funny thing is I actually saw the ring box beforehand and for a split second thought he was proposing but dismissed that idea quickly. I don’t know why I didn’t even bother opening the box to check.“ - Stephanie

Did you see each other before the wedding?

“Yes, we saw each other before! We love spending time together so I think I would’ve hated going all day not seeing each other. It was also more special seeing each other for the first time with no one around.” - Stephanie
