I had the honor of photographing Diana & Victor’s Wedding at Son Cubano in West New York, NJ. I have known Diana for many years and was delighted when she asked me to be her Wedding Photographer.
Planning a Wedding in the summer is always great! Especially for outdoor shots.
We were all so lucky the weather was perfect! Not too hot or humid, just right.
The Wedding photographer appreciates when the couple cares about the lighting and how it is going to affect their pictures.
Diana & Victor tried ‘The First Look’; where the couple see each other for the first time before the ceremony. Many couples are doing this so they have enough time to take Bride and Groom shots which is big help for the Photographer and also to jump from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and actually enjoy a little more their event and guests.
Diana and Victor chose a beautiful spot, an old peer in northern New Jersey that overlooks the stunning New York city’s skyline. Along with the perfect weather the gorgeous views and the emotion, I am sure this loving pair will never forget their first look.
Some of the highlights of the ceremony were the cutest Flower Girl and a very handsome Ring Bearer! It was a joyful night with great music and lovely people, definitely a night to remember.

Here’s their story

Victor and I met 14 years ago. We knew after our first kiss that we were meant for each other. We didn’t have a normal relationship. Victor came along with 2 beautiful little girls. Alexis was 3 and Briannah was 1. His love for his daughters was what stole my heart even more. At 18 years old I decided that I wanted to help him raise his kids. Against what everyone else thought and said we moved in together after just 6 months.
Our life has always consisted of bettering ourselves and giving the girls everything we never had. We went from a 1 bedroom apartment to a house in the suburbs. We’ve never complained about anything because as long as all 4 of us were together we were happy.
Last year on Mother’s Day Victor proposed to me in front of our entire family. I was so surprised and excited. We had spoken about it for years but having a family always came first. He was carrying my nephew and went down on one knee and my nephew said, will you marry Tio Tia? Then they both put the ring on my finger. It was perfect!
A little over a year later we were getting ready to walk down the isle. So on our 14 year anniversary we decided to get married. We finally were getting our day to share with everyone that has been so important in our lives. We would share how much we loved each other.
So our life didn’t start very traditional, but we are the people we are today because of it. 14 years later we are still in love more then ever. We can’t wait to see what the future brings us.

What a gorgeous summer day to celebrate Love!. It was my great honor to photograph Monica & Lenin’s Wedding last week at The Elan in Lodi, New Jersey.
My job as a Wedding Photographer is to make sure all the details and special moments of the Wedding Day are captured. From the Wedding gown, to the shoes to all of what makes the reception unique.The flowers, Wedding cake and everything that the loving couple planned for so long.

This beautiful bride put so much effort on every little part of this day; she chose an unbelievable wedding gown covered in lace detail and sensational shoes to complete a fabulous look. For the reception, she picked a stunning cocktail frock that let her enjoy the party. She made sure her daughter was also sparkling in a soft pink dress.

They were definitely dressed to impress!

Their family and friends shared their joy during the ceremony and danced the night away.

Congratulations to the Newlyweds, wishing you many years of happiness!

Bridal Photo-shoots are unique. There is something different on each Bride that makes her Queen of her Day! I did this Bridal Shoot a few months ago and this particular and splendid Model channeled what you would call the perfect classic bride.

From the hair to the make-up and accessories, she was portraying a timeless woman on the most special day of her life, Wedding Day. I enjoy taking Bridal Pictures and capture those moments through my lenses.

An Instant Classic!

Ever since I took the featured pictures last year, many brides have fallen in love with this hair-do. Being part of this business has taught me a lot about beauty and hair; this messy braid beautifully crafted by the always professionals at Studio Verve has been a favorite and top requested style for wedding days.
I have worked in conjunction with Studio Verve for Hair and Make up on Bridal, Boudoir and Fashion Photo Sessions many times and I have to say, they never disappoint. As a photographer, I cannot ask for more when a Bride is confident because she loves her hair and make up on such an iconic day.

Making the right choices for that Day

While the wedding gown may be the most important choice you make for your Wedding Day, picking the right hair stylist and make-up artist is just as major! Look for experience and quality.
You don’t want any mishap to ruin one of the most important days of your life. Leave it to the professionals to give you a cohesive experience and look like a million dollars!
Professional Studios like Studio Verve, serving New jersey and New York City are dedicated to make brides happy and beautiful. Booking a studio is a great option, it is only one contact and you may even get discounted rates for using both services: hair and make-up. It also pays off for your bridesmaids, mom and mother in law! The more the merrier.
While the options for Professional Photographers in New York City metro area can be overwhelming, deciding on an experienced Photography Studio like Diego Molina Photography will become your best investment.

How important are Wedding Hair/MakeUp Trials?

Very! Make sure the team you choose offers one and be as clear as possible with them on what you expect.
Some brides don’t see the need. They consider it a waste of time and an additional cost, but the truth is; unless this is your go to person that knows you and your hair/skin for years, you want to have some kind of rehearsal just like the fittings of your gown to assure you are satisfied and not in for bad surprises.

I highly recommend Studio Verve for Hair and Make up on your wedding Day or any event where you require professionals. I have worked many times with them in the past as a team. It is always a pleasure and fun experience for everyone. Did I mention you are in for a treat? They have the best attitude and make it fun for you and your friends.
