Engagement sessions are one of my favorites when it comes to photography. I love meeting the couples and learning about their story and future together. My session with Holly and Tim was no exception! They were such a fun couple and they were troopers on the chilly November evening! And learning about their story made it all the more fun :) Check out some of my favorites from their session below!
Every engagement session, I enjoy working and getting to know each and every couple. Everyone has a different story and unique bond and I love sharing in that, if even just for the couple hours I get to work with them! But when I met Lianne & Scyler for their engagement pictures, I quickly realized this couple had something really special. Their love for each other is so strong, and they've been through so much together (which has only made them stronger!). I really appreciated hearing their stories and getting to know the wonderful couple that they are.
We met at Holmdel Park in Monmouth County early Sunday morning. And by early I mean sunrise early. I've said it before, and I will say it again, I LOVE sunrise photoshoots. There is something so calming about taking pictures when most people aren't even awake. And not only that, but there is no prettier time of day! Lucky for us, Sunday was no ordinary sunrise. First off, it was freezing (not literally, but after we've been spoiled with warm fall weather, it felt like it!). But there was also a fine layer of mist skirting the entire park. With the fall colors on top of that, it was literally breathtaking.
Lianne & Scyler - I wish you all the best with wedding planning and your future together!! It was so nice meeting you (and your adorable pups!) and thank you so much for sharing your story with me!

October 20th, 2017 was a day I've been looking forward to for a while now. Not only was it my first fall wedding to photograph, but it was the day two great friends of ours were saying "I do"! And while I had so many expectations for how the day would go, they were all exceeded when it finally came!
One of my favorite things about the newlyweds is their ability to make any situation fun and anybody laugh, and their wedding day was full of both! From the beginning pictures with the groomsman to the final bride and groom portraits, the whole day was one of my most fun days of photography yet! They celebrated their love at Awbury Arboretum in Philadelphia, which turned out to be the perfect fall day - lots of sun, changing leaves, and a perfect temperature. Not only was the day fun and lighthearted, but their love for each other was so tangible (I may or may not have cried during the ceremony...).
Maggie and Shawon - congratulations on your big day!! Thank you for letting me capture your portraits! Can't wait to watch you make memories together throughout the years of marriage ahead!

I've been looking forward to Stephanie & Austin's wedding since the day I met them for their engagement shoot, and it really was more than I could ever have imagined! I've said it many times, but there's nothing that makes me happier in photography than when you can feel a couple's love through the camera. It really is why I love doing weddings and engagement shoots so much! This is something that comes so naturally to Steph and Austin. Their chemistry is unbelievable, and the way they light up when the other is nearby is a beautiful thing!
Steph & Austin- thank you so much for letting me be apart of your big day! It was so nice to get to know you throughout the past couple months, and I wish you all the best as you continue to build your marriage and life together!

Summer is unfortunately winding down [insert crying face] but before it ends, I was lucky enough to go to the beach once more - for family portraits with my favorites, Janet, Jason & Damon. This one is special for me because I've gotten to know this cute family from maternity pictures to newborn pictures, to now, family pictures. Janet & Jason are one of the cutest couple, and Damon is probably the happiest child I've ever met! He literally exudes joy! Check out some of my favorites from their shoot in beautiful Mantoloking, NJ!
