Bride and Groom portrait in greenhouse at Pleasantdale Chateau

A Spring Wedding at Pleasantdale Chateau I was super excited about Carlie and Nick’s wedding day. First of all, you couldn’t ask for a nicer, more considerate couple than these two.

A Wedding in Full Color It had been almost a year since I met Brandy and Mike during their Princeton engagement session. Their wedding was right around the corner, so we decided to meet for coffee just a few weeks before the big day. Over a year and a half ago, I gave Brandy a […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Many Faces of Joy I can remember each and every one of my clients with a small sound bite to describe them. Kelly and Matt’s sound bite goes a little something like this: Kelly is incredibly kind, smiles all the time and crinkles her nose with every smile. Matt is full of personality and […]

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 […]

“We’re halfway there” If ever there were a quintessential Hoboken couple, Kenia and John are it. The first time I met them was at the bar where it all began at O’Nieal’s Restaurant and Bar where we kicked off their engagement session. After a glass of wine for Kenia, we were all set to start […]

A Fall Wedding at Jasna Polana Can anyone else quickly read a couple’s dynamic just by watching them interact? When I first met Alison and Mike, I got the feeling that they had grown up together and felt so relaxed and comfortable in each other’s company. I couldn’t imagine them apart. Besides ending our engagement […]

Stacy, Fil & Roo say “I do” Before their adorable puppy Roo became the third wheel, Fil and Stacy’s history began circa late 90s when the only social media available required you to be anchored to a computer: AIM. So, naturally, this is how they exchanged information while at a middle school basketball game. This […]

The Power Girls Take Vilnius It’s no secret that I’m not a huge vacation person. I love mixing business with pleasure, so I typically plan my “vacations” around some new business adventure. However, I do have a soft spot for history, heritage and heirlooms, which is honestly why I love photography so much. I’m constantly […]
