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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

In true NYC fashion, Allison and Kevin met online and had their first date at a restaurant in the West Village. They met for a drink at the bar, and then decided to stay for dinner. As they say, the rest is history and they were engaged this past August! I had the pleasure of […]

If you follow us on Instagram, you might remember that Jay and I went out to Chicago this past fall to shoot an engagement session. Well, I’m so excited to finally be sharing it with you on the blog today! This was such a fun trip for us and we were so happy to be […]

All this talk about snow coming this weekend has me dreaming of warmer days so I figured it was the perfect time to share Lauren and Josh’s engagement session from last spring. Plus I just finished working on their timeline for their wedding day this coming May! These two are getting married at St. Anne’s […]
