Amanda and Sean were engaged last August after an epic proposal at a castle. Yup! More on that in Amanda’s own words below, but first let me tell you about their cherry blossom engagement session! Amanda and Sean wanted an engagement session with the cherry blossoms so we planned to do it in mid-April when […]


Welcome to our 2019 wedding season! After four months off from shooting weddings to rest before welcoming our baby girl and then snuggle with her day in and day out, I re-entered the wedding world last Friday to shoot our first wedding of the year. I have to say that as much as I missed […]


Happy April, friends! If you’ve been following this blog for a while you were probably wondering why it’s been so quiet around here! It’s hard to believe I haven’t published a blog post on here for over seven weeks! That’s the longest stretch I’ve gone without publishing new content. It wasn’t my intention to take […]


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 […]
