We are Ron and Gwynne Wade and we are thrilled you stopped by!
We are a husband and wife NJ wedding photography team. You can count on us to capture artistic images of your wedding day just the way you've always dreamed they would be and as we have done for many other couples.
All our packages include a stunning custom-designed, Italian-made photo album that you will cherish as your first family heirloom.
You have a million things to do to get ready for your perfect day, so we make planning your wedding photography effortless. Really! We work with you well ahead of time to create a detailed plan and then we tell you forget about it, because we will make sure things flow smoothly. While we don't shoot video, we are happy to recommend a talented videography partner if you are interested in video.
On your wedding day, we understand:
You want formals, but you want them to done quickly – we get it and we have a plan.
During the formals, we've had people say “Wow, I wish we had you at our wedding, you are so efficient!” These are important photos to most couples - we do them right, quickly. Don't want formal photos? Great, more time with the two of you.
You want us to capture every moment and detail, but not get in your way.
Think of us as photo ninjas that provide guidance when you need it and blend in when you don’t.
You want us to be in two places at once, and with two of us, we literally can be.
Two getting ready locations - done. Mulitple things happening during the ceremony - no problem. Ron captures the expression on your fiancé’s face when you are seen for the first time while Gwynne captures your expression as you walk down the aisle. With two of us watching, all those special looks and once in a lifetime moments are captured for all of time. And don't worry, if you want a non-traditional wedding ceremony, we'll capture all of that too!
You want to work with professionals, but also with fun people who care.
Your wedding is a celebration and a party which we document in amazing photos and we make sure everyone has a good time doing it. With our artistic and photojournalist style, rest assured we will capture all the events in a creative manner and we will get just the right mix of romantic photos of the two of you.
And we really care. It's hard to explain, but you will know it and feel it. It's things like visiting your venues ahead of time so we get the best images on your wedding day. We help with special requests whenever we can ("we'd really like to have a horse for our engagement session" - yep, made it happen with the help of a friend!). We know all the details of your day ahead of time and we work with your DJ, event planner, and anyone else so you can relax and know we won't miss anything. We want your album to be perfect too, so we don't rush you or put limits on your changes. Lots of little things that add up to a big difference.
Most of all, you want a beautiful, creative set of images...
Images that capture the details and emotions of your day from beginning to end. Our favorite thing to hear is “We had tears in our eyes looking at our photos for the first time”. That’s why we do this.
Want to know a little more personal stuff about us?
In addition to photography, we love hiking, mountain biking, adventure travel, and our Bengal cat, Leo. We both grew up in California, we moved to New Jersey about 12 years ago (gasp, yes, we actually moved from CA to NJ), and we love it here. Gwynne has a passion for growing and photographing flowers and we both enjoy using our talents to give back to the community.
Ron started taking photos back in high school, first shooting for his school year book and his home town newspaper and then he moved on to weddings which he has been doing for more than 25 years. Gwynne joined Ron first as his assistant and now is a primary photographer with Ron and the photo editor. Gwynne also loves boudoir photography which makes a wonderful wedding gift.
We both absolutely love working with people and we can’t imagine doing anything other than NJ wedding photography, although we also cover western PA and parts of NY and we are available for destination weddings.
So, thanks for getting to know us a little, we'd love to meet you. Contact us to discuss your wedding, engagement, or photo session soon!
