I don’t know what it is, but every time a photographer tries to do a photoshoot for ourselves it always ends up being the crappiest of weather types of days. For our engagement session with Christine Magee Photography, it was raining, extremely overcast, and super humid! Even though the weather was so not in our […]

It is so nerve-wracking when another photographer reaches out for a session. I don’t know why, but it happens to every photographer that captures another photographer’s images! For me, I stress over making sure I can wow them and make them feel as comfortable as I do my couples. Most photographers don’t normally like to […]

Brittany and Michael have the type of personalities that just make you feel so warm and welcomed inside. I instantly knew Britt and Mike were my kind of people! We laughed and played […]

I am pretty sure the day I shot Vicki and Geoff’s Asbury engagement session was the coldest day we have had all fall because it was bone-chilling cold! When I say bone-chilling, I literally mean all three of us were shivering within the first 5 minutes of their session! That is how cold it was! […]

Batsto Village is one of my favorite places to shoot engagement sessions because it offers so much variety with a very rustic but elegant charm! Batsto Village is definitely a popular spot amongst other photographers too because it is free to get inside the park, doesn’t require a permit to shoot there, and pets are […]

Amanda and Vincent chose to do a sunrise session which I personally love because I am more of a morning person than a night owl. Well, depending on who you ask that is! I love the mornings and I wish more of my couples opted in for sunrise sessions because they truly are amazing! Sunrise […]

Sayen House and Gardens is one of my absolute favorite places to go to for engagement sessions because even in the fall or winter months when all the leaves have fallen, it is still such a beautiful place!

My couples take me to some gorgeous places which I am always grateful more because I can’t seem to ever find the time to explore New Jersey and scope out new photoshoot locations. I have couples from all over the Tri-States and I love of them have either their favorite locations that they love to […]

Normally at the beginning of November, it is too cold to do sessions on the beach but believe it or not, the weather was in the 70’s the day we did Boonyanunn (AKA Toon) and Edwards engagement session. We were worried about the weather being a little too cold for us, but we could not […]

You can check out their engagement session HERE. I was very excited about Tiffany and Michael’s wedding because I knew it was going […]

Stephen and I met back in middle school, so quite some time ago! We were good friends back in the day but lost touch when we had to go to different high schools. When Stephen reached out to me back in February, I was both shocked and thrilled that he and his then-fiance, Mary, were […]

These two are finally and officially engaged! I say officially because I did a photoshoot of Cassidy and Joe earlier in the year and blogged it as an engagement session and all their friends and some family started to freak out because they thought Cassidy and Joe were engaged. That was not the case though […]

I have never shot a Stagecoach Inn wedding before and I am so thrilled that I finally have! I need more weddings at this gorgeous venue, for sure! Even though The Stagecoach Inn is over a 2-hour drive from me, it is so worth it! The Stagecoach Inn in Goshen New York is so adorable […]

Kamara and Mark chose to do a sunrise session in Asbury Park and I think it was such a good decision! Even though it rained through almost half their engagement session, these two did a phenomenal job and absolutely rocked their Asurby Park engagement session! I love Asbury Park engagement sessions because there is so […]
