Classic Wedding at Trump National When I first spoke with Chrissy and Gerry, they weren’t quite set on a date or venue yet. They knew they wanted to get married in the Somerset Hills, having grown up in the area, but hadn’t pinpointed a venue. We discussed what was most important to them – family, […]

Lauren’s email to me right after getting engaged sounded something like this: “I have been following your account for a few years and I just love your romantic, timeless, and bright photographs. I knew once I got engaged I would have to reach out to you!” What a message to receive! I was thrilled to […]

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 […]

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 […]

A Romantic Mid-Summer Coastal Wedding There are so many different ways to get married. It’s one of the reasons I love my job. No two weddings are the same. It’s an entirely different setting every time, and very often in locations that keep me traveling – which I love! Danielle and John fell in love […]

Romance In Full Bloom At This Classic Chinoiserie-Inspired Wedding Margaux & Will’s wedding was a real celebration of getting all of their family and friends together in one location. This may sound like every other wedding, only this group of people is from every corner of the world. Most of these people had never even […]

Victoria and Neil are high school sweethearts, and last week they tied the knot! When I arrived at the Park Chateau, there was an enlarged photo from their prom, and next to it, a more recent photograph from their engagement session! Now, they need to add their wedding photo to this triptych to complete their […]

Married At Last, Again Building a relationship is hard work. Those early days of finding the right person to start life’s journey with. It’s hard work, but at some point in the relationship building process, the pieces just fall into place. Conversation comes easily, a foundation of trust is built and you share milestones together. […]

A Trump National Spring Wedding I met Erica in Central Park just a few weeks ago! She contacted me to take her bridal portraits in Central Park to display at her wedding at the end of May. Erica and her maid of honor were heading down 72nd Street toward Central Park West in full wedding […]

A Backyard Spring Wedding I thought, I can’t possibly continue with my plan to post this gorgeous Spring styled shoot when no one can get married right now. Then, I actually really looked at these images. It occurred to me, I MUST post these spring wedding photos? Why? Because a styled shoot is nothing short […]
