We don't just do weddings!

We don't just do weddings, Neil Anthony of ‘In The Moment Photography, (ITM Photos) also photographs and films business marketing events at 21st Century Digital. His clearly conveyed creative vision in the business arena always results in sharp authoritative imagery.

At a wedding Neil Anthony captures the transition of time, by being reactive, a quiet observer, the person who reports what he sees and doesn’t try to improve it, arrange it or fictionalize it, but captures the moments, naturally at its best.

The Olde Mill Inn
The Olde Mill Inn, Basking Ridge, New Jersey is fast becoming one of the new favorites for 21st Century Digital Photography. We are photographing an increasing number of weddings at this classic venue with at least 6 weddings booked at the hotel facility and the Grain House restaurant in 2013.

This groom was getting ready in the Sir Frances Bernard Suite.

Using your surroundings

There is always something you can use to make a simple photo much more interesting. This image was taken in a local hotel. The room behind the wooden slats is a rather unpleasant looking kitchenette/dining area.

Wedding photographer enjoys himself at your wedding

Is your photographer supposed to have fun at the wedding? You better believe it. The photographer is calling the shots much of the time. Moods are infectious. The mood of the photographer will be picked up by you and your wedding party. If you want happy faces YOU want a happy photographer. Neil Anthony’s natural British humor (and British upbringing) pretty much guaranties a great time for all. He engenders trust; key when you’re trying to solicit the cooperation of timid flower girls and boisterous ring bearers. In short, Neil will be like an old friend by the end of the evening or your money back. (Well not quiet.)

Got it, Finally!

Sometimes I'll give myself a little challenge. After several attempts at quite a few weddings, I finally with a single shot, managed to capture the cork flying out of a Champagne bottle with a single press of the shutter.

Smoked Out Wedding Reception

When you are sitting at the table with your vendors saying yes to all those great deals they are throwing at you in an effort to coax you into signing the dotted line, it can on occasion be difficult to imagine the downside of those seemingly magnanimous offerings. In this case the couple got a great deal on some party lighting and a smoke machine. The lighting looked pretty amateurish when caught in the photographers frame, and need much be said about how the smoke machine spoiled any chance of creative photography, not to mention the incessant ear piercing shrill of the buildings Smoke Detectors. Don't waste money on cheap frills; instead get your vendor to discount some up-lighting. Photographers love this kind of illumination as it raises the ambient light which makes for better images at your reception.

ITM Photos Testimonial

Nicole and David are an example of a couple that made my work straightforward and enjoyable. In fact their entire family were very easy going. Here’s why. This wedding took place on October 29th 2011, the day of the freak blizzard snow storm on the East Coast. I left the studio four hours early for obvious reasons and arrived at the hotel in good time even though the roads were reacherous and trees were falling and taking power lines down with them. Upon arrival the hotel lost power several times before the Backup Generator finally engaged. In the end most of the guests arrived along with the officiate to the joy of Dave and Nicole, and they became one.

Well not quite...
After all the formal pictures are over we like to have a little fun though.
