Before Hurricane Sandy barreled through and destroyed our coast, I had the chance to photograph at one of my favorite spots on the Jersey shore with the lovely Erin H Photography. The Ocean Grove pier was one of the many landmarks that Sandy completely took away. I have sat under that pier and have witnessed numerous sunrises, sometimes with friends, sometimes with Shawn or just me and my thoughts. I can’t begin to explain the sadness that certain towns display but the hope and courage and determination to clean and restore the shore is astounding. These are a few images from Dana and Kevin’s wedding day by that pier.
