Rachael + Ryan

Posted September 14, 2016 | Category: Weddings

On a hot day back in August, Rachael + Ryan got married at Trinity Church in Princeton. It was a day filled with family, friends, fun and laughter (& beer). As you’ll see from the photos, Rachael has a fantastic sense of style – from her wedding gown, to the flowered bridesmaids’ dresses, to the many details and decorations – you could see great attention went into all of her wedding choices, making it really memorable.

Over the past year I’ve gotten to know Rachael and Ryan, and I cannot say enough about what good people they are. I first met them last summer for their engagement session. Over this past year I’ve learned they are both kind, thoughtful, and intelligent individuals. As a couple, they are perfect for each other. I also shot Rachael’s best friend’s wedding earlier this year, so I feel like I’ve gotten to know their circle of friends and family, and they are all seriously the best.

Trinity Church was the most beautiful church and made a gorgeous backdrop for Rachael + Ryan’s touching ceremony. Afterwards, we walked over to Princeton University for some portraits, before heading to their awesome venue: Triumph Brewing Company. It was such a cool and unique venue, and one that celebrated their love of beer. (They even celebrated their 2 year anniversary at the brewery). I loved the layout of the venue, it’s exposed brick, and balcony overlooking the dance floor. It was so different, and the perfect place to celebrate Rachael and Ryan’s marriage. I wish them nothing but the best, and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them. Congratulations you two!!

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.
