The Details Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited to share these Willowwood Arboretum engagement photos today! I have to say that our couples have been choosing some pretty gorgeous locations for engagement photos and it has been a real treat! For Juliana and Joe’s engagement session, we met up at this hidden gem in Chester Township. I discovered this […]

Grace and Anthony both attended Manhattan College and they met there during their freshman year. Neither of them can really recall their very first time meeting, but they tend to agree it was mostly likely at Liffy’s II – a very classy local dive bar. Their first date reminds me of my husband Jay’s and mine because it was actually a double […]

I met up with Megan and Kevin back in February on what we thought would be a cold winter day. Since they had chosen to do a Longwood Gardens engagement session, we planned on being able to do most of the photos indoors. But when the day came, it was spring-like at 66 degrees! We couldn’t have […]

I first met Leigh Ann after I photographed her best friend’s newborn baby boy and connected with her over blogging. We ended up collaborating on a few fun projects and I was thrilled when I found out Leigh Ann was engaged and wanted us to be a part of her wedding day. Leigh Ann is […]

I remember when I was single and spent my time dreaming of meeting my future husband during my travels abroad. I thought for sure I’d meet him somewhere in France, or maybe Spain. Well, that’s definitely not how it turned out for me (I met Jay just a few towns away from mine!) but that’s exactly […]

Yesterday’s unseasonably warm weather may be gone now but here’s a sweet engagement session to bring us back to summer. I met up with Shalu and Dan at the gorgeous Skylands Manor last September. These two went to the same high school, but didn’t meet until mutual friends invited them to a pool party. They didn’t hit it […]

2016 might be over but we’re not done sharing our fall work with you all! Today I’m excited to introduce you to Helene and Derek. These two met in Connecticut when they used to work together.  They made a great team and bonded as friends at the time. Everyone at work knew Helene liked Derek – so […]

Elizabeth and Matt met online, around the time they had both almost given up on online dating. Elizabeth remembers Matt making her laugh right from the very beginning. They texted for a few days before they planned their first meeting and Elizabeth tried to keep her expectations low so she could avoid being disappointed while Matt […]

There is nothing I love more about engagement sessions than getting to know our couples and finding out how they picked the location for their shoot. Kate and John met through mutual friends while they were in college at Villanova University and now live in Philadelphia. They live within walking distance of the art museum […]

Jaime and Frank are great friends of two of our past couples so we were super excited when they reached out to us about photographing their wedding! They live in Hoboken so we hopped on Skype with them to chat about all the wedding details and I loved hearing Frank’s proposal story firsthand just as […]

Natalie and Matt have known each other since they were in the fourth grade. Yes, the fourth grade! We don’t come across that many couples who have known each other for that long so it has been wonderful to discover their story. From the moment Natalie and Matt came to our home to meet with […]

One thing I love about engagement sessions, besides getting to know our couples, is that I get to shoot in new places all the time! When Lela and Carson said they met at Lafayette College, we all new we had to do Lafayette College engagement photos. I had never been to the campus but as […]
