Fear-Taming Tips for Rain on Your Wedding Day! Introduction Kate is one of my 2018 brides, and when I asked her for a few tips for future brides, she sent me an entire blog! I met Kate and Bart through a couple of friends, and when they hired me to photograph their wedding, I was […]

New Year’s Eve Wedding at Natirar Typically my New Year’s Eve consists of my little family asleep on the couch (and floor). That leaves me to toast myself at the start of the new year. We’re not what you call “party animals,” although sometimes my kids are in fact just animals. I digress. So, when […]

Scenic Views and Comfort Foods The art of wedding planning, because that’s really what it is, shouldn’t be vague. Every wedding is different, because the two people you’re celebrating are unique! Their wedding details and every other component should be unique as well, and Ali and Josh definitely added their personal taste (pun intended) to […]

Ali & Brad’s Greek Wedding I’ve been looking forward to this wedding all year! Ali and Brad’s wedding was my first Greek Orthodox wedding, so we decided from the start, that I would attend their rehearsal the night before so I could watch them go through the motions and learn about this beautiful ceremony! There […]

It’s always different (and always missing photographers), but aside from no photographer, they’re much like every wedding I get to photograph! No two weddings are the […]

There are just some brides that you get to know really well, so that by the time the wedding day comes around, you’re already friends. That’s how I would describe my relationship with Cara. Leading up to the wedding day, there were several emails, texts, direct messages, etc. and I absolutely loved it! I first […]

Love, Light & Laughter filled Wedding Day I met Alison and Jonathan for the first time only a few short weeks ago! I knew I loved them from the moment I recommended a sunrise engagement session for the amazing light, and they said yes without any hesitation! Not only did they arrive cheerfully on that […]

A Beach Wedding We’re going to have to start at the beginning of Kristin and Connor’s wedding planning to fully understand why their beach wedding (and instagram hashtag!) is so clever and important. A little over a year ago, while on vacation in Maui, Connor proposed to Kristin as the sun set over the beach […]

A Timeless Wedding at Natirar If I had to choose my favorite part of the wedding planning process with my couples, I think it would be getting to know them during their engagement session. There are so many things going on for couples planning their wedding. Some of it is daunting, some of it is […]

A Midsummer Wedding in the Somerset Hills I first met Emily and Scott at the crack of dawn last summer on a super windy day down the shore. I often refer to engagement sessions as “training ground” for the wedding day. Emily and Scott got extra credit for their training session, because the wind was […]
