Christina and Brendan met in high school during their sophomore year. They didn’t talk much at first but when they found themselves in the same Algebra class Junior year, Christina caught Brendan’s eye. He would write poems to her and ask her out, but it took a little while for her to come around. Luckily, […]


It may be fall already but I’ve still got so many summer engagement sessions to share! It’s so hard to keep up with sharing all of them while we’re so busy shooting weddings but as things quiet down this fall and winter, I’m excited to have some time to introduce you to all of our […]


Lauren and John have known each other since high school but it wasn’t until after college that these two reconnected thanks to a friend’s wedding that Lauren attended as John’s “Plus 1”!  It clicked between them and they were engaged over two years ago on the Hoboken waterfront. Their wedding day was long-awaited and I […]


I first met Alison and Sean during their Hickory Run State Park engagement session last fall. I’ve loved hearing about the amazing beginning to their relationship. In just two years time, Sean proposed to Alison while skydiving 13,000 feet up in the sky, Alison finished nursing school, Sean completed his residency, they planned a wedding, moved from […]


Marianne and Chris met on Tinder after they both swiped right and they set up a night for their first date, but when Chris didn’t respond, the date didn’t happen. A week later, Chris reached out to Marianne and told him that the app wouldn’t allow him to connect, and since he didn’t have her […]


Our summer wedding season is officially over and wow, what a season it was! Together with our associate photographer Jocelyn we shot nineteen weddings – our busiest summer yet! We had so much fun working with all of our amazing couples, even if the rain made things a little stressful during the wet August/September months. […]


Happy Monday, friends! I haven’t done a Tips for Brides post in a while so today I thought I’d answer a common question we tend to get at this time of the year when we’re entering our busiest booking season. Historically, the fall is when we get the highest number of inquiries – typically about […]


I’m so excited to introduce you to Tasha and Daniel today! I met up with these two at Sayen Gardens last month and I loved getting to know these two. With Daniel being in the military, stationed in different parts of the country, it hasn’t been easy for them! Actually, just to make this shoot […]


Catherine and Hrvoje met for the first time at Lifetime Fitness while Hrvoje was a trainer at the facility.  Hrvoje first noticed Catherine while she was working on her cardio on the stairmaster.  A few days later while she was babysitting, she received a Facebook message from Hrvoje asking her to text him if she got bored […]


Eunice and Sun met when they were in high school and were each other’s first loves! They grew close through the years and life’s journey led them to getting engaged at the gorgeous Antelope Canyon in Arizona. We have a soft spot for that location as it was one of our stops when Jay took […]


I have such an amazing wedding to share with you today! Hannah and Matt were married last Saturday and this one was for the books! With the help of our dear friend Jeanne from Bogath Weddings & Events, these two planned a beach wedding on Long Beach Island, where they love to vacation. But since […]


Once in a while I get to shoot editorials and when I do, I always love the results. There’s something so special about getting together with a talented group of wedding vendors to create something unique. Last summer I had the opportunity to participate in an inspiration shoot at Prallsville Mills, a historic site located […]
