A Spring Wedding at Bay Head Yacht Club Kallan spent her summers as a child down the shore, where her parents and grandparents shared the neighboring houses at end of the block in Bay Head. Later in life, with Matt, they spent the work from home months cooped up at the beach house to escape […]

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 […]

Going to the Chapel I’ve been spending a lot of editing hours watching wedding movies in the background, and love seeing what Hollywood assumes a wedding should look like. 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 […]

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 […]

Hindu Ceremony at Natirar I photographed my first Hindu ceremony last Saturday, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. First of all, Dana and Arun were awesome about walking me through what to expect. They were not at all concerned about the fact that I had never photographed an Indian wedding before, and I […]

Joyful Spring Wedding at Natirar Emily and Scott’s wedding was absolutely stunning! However, that’s not what makes this wedding day so magical. What did make it so magical? Let’s start with the fact that they both got each other two cards (and thought they were so clever!). Emily’s crinkle-nose when she smiles. The moment Dad […]

Glitter and Glamorous Details There are many things that make up a wedding photographer’s dream. A neatly organized box of wedding details is definitely one of them! When I arrived to the bridal suite at the Mansion at Natirar, Adriana pointed toward the corner where she had her shoes, rings, invitations, shawl, jewelry, and the […]

Christmas Bride at Natirar When I pulled up to Natirar for my very last wedding of 2018, I was greeted by the twinkling lights settled on the brick wall, leading up to the mansion. The front door was adorned with festive wreaths, and upon entering the marble foyer, a warm glow from the candles¬†and sprawling […]

A Beautiful, Blustery Fall Wedding Saturday greeted us with gorgeous light and glowing trees. I texted Laura, my bride, to wish her a happy wedding day and her response was “mind the wind!” No kidding! It was a super windy day in the 200 acre wood that makes up Natirar Park! It’s no secret that […]

Married at Natirar While I felt like I got to know Ali and Matt pretty well at their engagement session, I learned so much more about them on their wedding day! When I first walked into Natirar’s main hall, I saw all kinds of one-of-a-kind signs that Ali, the DIY Natirar bride that she is, […]

Spring Showers and May Flowers I have a little “brag box” on my wedding questionnaire that I send to all of my couples a few weeks before their wedding. Sometimes I get a few bullet point remarks, other times I get a story. I received a story from Katherine, and I absolutely loved it. I […]
