There’s something so special about engagement sessions! I just love meeting our couples for the first time when they are just so excited about their upcoming wedding that they can’t stop smiling. Nicole and Matt’s engagement session was no exception! Nicole and Matt met when Nicole was in graduate school studying speech-language pathology. The program […]


Thalita and Damir met on November 12, 2011, during a night out in NYC. They knew there was something special between them but, unfortunately, the timing wasn’t right. They never lost touch, though, and whenever their paths would cross again it was magical. The conversation would flow for hours and it felt like they had […]


Katy and Derrick have had the most magical engagement and wedding! It all started when Derrick surprised Katy for her birthday with an unforgettable trip to Paris.

With July 4th already behind us, and full on summer weather these last few weeks, it’s about time I share what we’ve got coming up this summer!

One week ago, Jamie and Matt tied the knot on one of Jay and my favorite dates of the year: June 30th! For the first time ever, we are sharing a wedding anniversary with one of our couples! We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple to spend our anniversary with, not to mention the […]


Sara and Landon celebrated their wedding last Friday at Pleasantdale Chateau and it was absolutely perfect from beginning to end!

The Summer 2018 issue of the magazine is on newsstands now so if you’re on LBI this summer, make sure you grab yourself a copy! For this shoot, […]


Last Sunday we had the honor of capturing Katherine and John’s wedding day at two of our favorite locations: Princeton University and Park Chateau Estate! Katherine and John met while they were students at Princeton University so it was perfectly fitting for them to center their wedding day plans around the university chapel and campus where […]


If you’ve never been to a Greek wedding, you need to get yourself invited to one because they are the absolute liveliest events! As soon as I arrived at Karen’s parents’ home, I knew it was going to be a fun day. Karen’s father and a couple of her brothers were at the edge of […]


Rachel and Joe met after graduating college and after they had both moved to Hoboken in preparation for their new jobs. Rachel was a psychology major and never thought she’d end up in finance but kismet had it’s way and they ended up in the same starting class at a financial firm. They caught each […]
