My first time shooting at The Mill Lakeside Manor was for Nick and Kait’s wedding, and I am obsessed with this venue! Every square inch of The Mill Lakeside Manor is beautiful and has many picture opportunities! In addition, it also has some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with!

Brianna and Jace’s rainy October wedding at Scotland Run Golf Club was beautiful from start to finish. Even though it rained most of the day at their wedding, it did not faze these two one bit! If anything, it brought these two closer because of all the snuggles for portraits!

Being a wedding photographer definitely has you traveling all over the state, venturing to so many different and new venues. I love everything about South Jersey, yet I rarely ever have the chance to work in the area where I live. I have shot at The Reeds at Shelter Haven before I believe back in […]

Sydney and Robert are probably some of the most relaxed and easy-going couples I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Their ceremony took place at the Avon Pavillion that overlooked the beach and their reception was at The Columns in Avon-By-The-Sea. I used to dislike beach weddings but this year has turned me […]
