Jaclyn + Billy

Posted August 9, 2016 | Category: Engagements

At the end of June I met up with Jaclyn + Billy at the New Jersey Botanical Gardens in Ringwood for their engagement session. I had never been there before, but I was SO impressed with everything it had to offer. Around every corner we came across another beautiful backdrop. It reminded me of something out of a fairytale. And not to mention, the light that afternoon was perfect! Jaclyn and Billy are such a fun, down to earth couple. We were laughing the whole session. They were total naturals in front of the camera, and I think their photos turned out really lovely. Below are some of my favorites from our session.

Lauren + Joe

Posted August 8, 2016 | Category: Weddings

Back on an unseasonably warm day in March, two of the sweetest souls got married. From the moment I met Lauren + Joe, I instantly knew they were a special couple. As I’ve gotten to know them, I’ve learned they are incredibly smart, funny, kind, and head-over-heels in love. I feel very lucky to have been a part of their beautiful wedding. They got married at the gorgeous Park Savoy Estate in Florham Park. It was personalized, elegant, and no detail was forgotten. From the menus made by Lauren, to the different (but coordinating) bridesmaids dresses, to the home brew beer favors and donations to charity, everything was so well thought out. This is a couple with impeccable taste. It was also some of the best food I’ve had at a wedding, in particular the Viennese hour. Another striking thing about Lauren and Joe is how wonderful their family and friends are. They have surrounded themselves with a really great group of people, who were so thrilled to celebrate their big day. I am so happy for Lauren and Joe and can’t wait to see what the future brings them. Congratulations you two!

Delpha + Milton

Posted June 30, 2016 | Category: Engagements

I recently met up with Delpha + Milton in their neighborhood in Jersey City for an engagement session.  Even though I lived in JC for 4 years and always expect it to be familiar, it is SO different every time I go back! I love seeing the changes and finding new, charming places that never existed before. It is a place with so much character. I had a great time exploring their neighborhood and getting to know them a little bit better before their wedding this September. Here are some of my favorite images from our afternoon.

Maria + David

Posted June 29, 2016 | Category: Engagements

Back when it was still cold out, I went down to Asbury Park for Maria + David’s engagement session. This session was extra cool because they didn’t choose the typical Asbury Park photo spots – they chose their favorite record store and the surrounding neighborhood. Despite the cold weather, I  think we had a lot of fun. Maria + David both have a lot of personality, and had me laughing the whole time. They were both such troopers even though I know they had to be freezing. As a couple, they are fun, interesting, and down to earth, and I cannot wait to photograph their awesome wedding at the end of September.
