Last summer, our Associate Photographer, Jocelyn, had the pleasure of photographing Ashley and Andrew’s Long Beach Island Engagement Session. This engagement session was truly unique because it incorporated styling by the talented Jeanne over at Bogath Events. I have a feeling that these styled engagement sessions are going to become a thing this year because they […]


Through the years, I’ve had the opportunity to capture outdoor ceremonies at many beautiful outdoor wedding venues in NJ and I’ve always been impressed by how diverse our state is. It’s called The Garden State for a reason, for it boasts countless stunning locations that include lush settings, but it also includes gorgeous waterfront and […]


Between the cold temperatures outside, the snow, and the fact that I’m 40 weeks pregnant, there’s very little to motivate me to leave the house these days! I guess you can say that I’m officially in winter hibernation mode… and in a constant state of waiting. Our baby girl should be here any day now […]


There’s something so neat about opening a magazine and seeing your work in print! Nichole and Bob had a beautiful summer wedding at Indian Trail Club and now it has been published in the Fall/Winter 2018 issue of Contemporary Weddings Magazine. All the details at this wedding came together wonderfully for our beautiful couple, making […]


Sometimes our couples have the easiest time choosing their engagement session location but sometimes it’s a little harder! After all, NJ is so diverse when it comes to backdrops. From rural to urban and beach to mountains, we have it all. Meredith and Michael were torn between a classic fall backdrop and urban cityscapes. Luckily, […]


Eeek! Another feature! I was so excited when the editor over at Wanderlust Bride reached out to me asking if she could feature Hannah and Matt’s wedding from last summer. We always love when our couples get featured – they put such hard work into planning their wedding days and I love seeing all their […]


Finding a wedding venue is probably one of the most stressful parts of wedding planning. Not only because you want to pick the perfect place but also because you have to make sure your fiance loves it just as much as you do *and* it has to fit your style, budget and be available on […]


Today I’m excited to share Christina and Rosti’s winter engagement at Allaire State Park, shot by our Associate Photographer Jocelyn last November. They met up in the morning and it paid off to get up so early because they had the prettiest morning light! I wish I could shoot in this type of light all […]


I’m so excited to share that for the sixth year in a row, we have received the WeddingWire Couple Choice Award! We’re so grateful and honored to have been chosen for this award for 2019 and we’d like to say thank you to our past clients for taking the time out of your busy schedules to […]


What’s a good way to get your mind off the single digit temps we have today? Re-living a gorgeous summer wedding at one of the prettiest venues on the Jersey Shore! I’m so excited to share that Caroline and Tom’s wedding at Sandy Hook Chapel has been featured on This wedding was previously featured […]


One of the best decisions that Jay and I made during our engagement was hiring a wedding planner. We knew we’d need someone to help us plan and coordinate many aspects of our wedding day and we’re so glad we trusted her because she handled all the logistics of our wedding day perfectly. From helping us […]


Eeeek! Today is a good day, friends! The Brookmill Farm wedding editorial that we shot last year in Lambertville is featured on the blog over at Contemporary Weddings Magazine! This shoot was such a fun project to work on because I got to work with all my favorite vendors and it turned out absolutely stunning! […]
