Jessica and Vin came to choose Joe as their wedding photographer via a wedding Joe and Britney photographed together a few years prior. Like Brian and Leigh, Jessica and Vin are big beach people and wanted at least a portion of their wedding on the beach. However, with a November wedding date, they knew they couldn’t have their reception on the beach so the created a mix of wedding locations that would satisfy their own desires as well as deal with the practical elements of the day. Their Rockaway beach wedding portraits were timed perfectly!

«– Blue accents from the flowers and decor brought in the water element of the beach. Jessica chose a taupe J Crew bridesmaid dress for her girls, pairing the sand element to the girls’ flowers.

–» Jessica also chose to get ready at her family home, another great way to keep things personally meaningful.
