Heather and Chad found us thanks to our past couple Krissa and Bill and we are so thankful they did! They are the most genuine couple, and we are so excited to get to know them and capture their wedding next April! For their engagement session, I met up with these two at Laurita Winery […]

There’s something so special about engagement sessions! I just love meeting our couples for the first time when they are just so excited about their upcoming wedding that they can’t stop smiling. Nicole and Matt’s engagement session was no exception! Nicole and Matt met when Nicole was in graduate school studying speech-language pathology. The program […]

With July 4th already behind us, and full on summer weather these last few weeks, it’s about time I share what we’ve got coming up this summer! The little glimpse we shared at our 2018 spring weddings was so popular, I couldn’t let this post highlighting our summer weddings fall between the cracks, even if […]

Caitlin and Charlie met at a friend’s house back when they were still in high school. Caitlin was a freshman and Charlie was a sophomore. The swim team was having a pasta party and a friend of Caitlin’s who was on the team invited her to go with her. While she was there, she remembers […]

Well, the weather outside may not scream summer but this engagement session sure does! Jill and Ross chose Sandy Hook for their engagement photos and even though we had to reschedule their session due to the weather, we ended up having a gorgeous day on the day I met them at Sandy Hook. It’s always […]

Sara and Landon actually went to the same high school but didn’t know each other at all. They were even in the same prom photos one year, but with different dates! They had some mutual friends, though, and ended up at a Memorial Day BBQ together one summer when they were home from college. They […]

It’s finally May and there’s no better way to kick off a new month than with an epic cherry blossom engagement session! Kenesha and Frank knew they wanted their engagement session among the cherry blossoms so we started to plan months ago. The cherry blossoms are only in bloom for a short while and we […]

When Ali and Nik reached out to us about their wedding, we immediately knew they were exactly the kind of couple we love to work with. Right from their initial message, we loved that 1) they are madly in love, 2) they expressed why they had connected with our work, 3) they put a high […]

All this talk of snow this week has me thinking back to Shannon and Chris’s snowy engagement photos at Sayen Gardens! When Shannon and Chris first contacted us about their Windows on the Water at Frogbridge wedding, Shannon mentioned wanting to incorporate snow into their engagement session. I immediately thought it would be so fun […]

Happy Friday, friends! I hope you all faired ok in the snow!! I actually didn’t even realize we were expecting such a huge storm until the night before so it kind of took me by surprise! It’s such a huge contrast to my former teacher life. Back then, I would have been wearing my PJs […]

Happy New Year, friends! We hope you had a fabulous holiday season with lots of family time!! Jay and I disconnected and focused on family ourselves, and it was so good for us after such a crazy year. We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with Jay’s family and then Christmas Day with my family […]

You’re engaged! Congratulations! This is such an amazing time in your life! I remember like it was yesterday when Jay proposed. After my initial state of shock and “deer-in-headlights” look as my husband lovingly calls it, all I wanted to do was announce our engagement to the world and start the wedding planning!
