NJ WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

An elevated New Jersey wedding photography experience
transforming once-in-a-lifetime milestones into cherished family heirlooms. 

For more than ten years, we’ve escorted busy brides and grooms from New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania through the often overwhelming experience of documenting a luxurious wedding celebration. We step into their lives as strangers, but by the first wedding morning mimosa toast, we feel as ingrained as each member of the tight-knit bridal party. By placing exceptional emphasis on preparation, communication, and education (Idalia was founded by a former teacher, after all!), our experience delivers both style and substance, both ease and excellence. And we, the Idalia Photography Team led by Alex Peterson, can’t wait to serve you!

CELEBRATING A DECADE OF DISTINCTION

NEW JERSEY NATIVE. FORMER TEACHER. OWNER OF IDALIA PHOTOGRAPHY.

More than 300 times since 2011, I’ve stepped into my trusty flats, slung my camera bag over my shoulder, and zipped off to a fairytale venue full of sweeping staircases and radiant light. I’ve navigated tricky timelines, calmed fraying nerves, and wiped away more than my fair share of happy tears. Talk about a charmed life! As a tri-state wedding photographer, I help elegant couples like you find calm during the chaos of planning and then preserve their celebrations with care. By blending the magic of light and airy photography with the sincerity of true-to-life editing, I can bring a graceful glow to my images without washing out skin tones or the lace details on your gown. This gives my galleries a timeless elegance guaranteed to stand the test of time. Why do I do it all? Step right this way to learn more!

PRESERVING THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME

Documenting the day your marriage begins should be as thrilling as booking a plane ticket to Bali or trying on your first Pnina Tornai! That’s why I’ve intentionally refined an experience that makes more room for joy— uncomplicated and clear while still celebrating everything that makes your love story extraordinary. 

THROUGH A NEW JERSEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE UNLIKE ANY OTHER

Like a Tiffany necklace or a priceless Monet, your memories deserve to be handled with care. And because you dream of displaying your wedding album in a place of honor on your coffee table just like your parents did for decades to come, I’ve crafted an experience that’s about so much more than just a digital gallery. Let’s transform your adventure of a lifetime into artwork that will last a lifetime…and beyond.
