I’m so excited to get to share Catherine and Gage’s Park Chateau Estate wedding photos with you! I knew when I met Catherine and Gage at their Lavallette engagement session that they’d be a wonderful couple to work with. They were so relaxed and comfortable with each other, and oh so excited to be married. […]


It seems that something all of our brides have in common is that they love pretty detail photos! And, if I’m being honest, photographing all the things that make your wedding unique is one of my favorite parts of the day! I love to photograph all the special items as soon as I arrive at […]


Olivia and Ryan were just engaged in December but they’re already well into the planning stages of their wedding planning! I met up with them for their engagement session in Spring Lake a couple of weeks ago and had so much fun getting to know these two. They’re planning a wedding at Clarks Landing Yacht […]


I first met Rennie back when I was teaching high school. Like myself, she was a Spanish teacher, and we connected over conversations about living in Spain, the lessons we were working on, and the students we were teaching. We quickly became friends and it’s hard to believe but I’ve known her now for about […]

Tasha and Daniel’s black tie wedding at the Castle at Skylands Manor was definitely one for the books! These newlyweds live in Oklahoma, so they planned their wedding from afar and you can imagine the hard work that went into designing their day. I remember hearing of their plans last summer during their beautiful Sayen […]


If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen that we were back at Indian Trail Club last weekend! Meredith and Michael live out in California but tied the knot here in NJ in a traditional church ceremony followed by a portrait session and reception at one of my favorite venues. It was a perfect […]


Last month I had the pleasure of meeting up wit Chelsea and Jeffrey for their Spring Cherry Blossom Engagement at Branch Brook Park in Newark. This was one of several cherry blossom engagements that I had the honor of photographing this year and it was so beautiful! This time of year is always one of […]


Lydia and Ryan met on their college class Facebook page the summer before they went off to college. They quickly became good friends and two years later, they started dating. Since then, they’ve shared many life experiences, including periods of long distance between them with Ryan being in the Coast Guard, but their love has […]


Lauren and Josh met while living in Hoboken at 10th and Willow, a local bar. After spending more time together, they realized quickly that they were falling for each other. Josh popped the question and the two began planning their special day. Almost one year ago to the date, we celebrated with an engagement session […]


Jessica and Kyle met in their high school math class! I love high school sweethearts – there’s something just so, well, sweet, about them. These two have been together for 12 years – amazing! Kyle ended up proposing during the holiday season so they opted for an engagement session during the holiday season as well. […]


So far May has been such a rainy month so I’m quite thankful that April had some beautiful spring days, and right during peak season of the cherry blossoms, too! I met up with Brittany and Ryan at Branch Brook Park during the third week in April when the trees were in full bloom and […]
