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 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 […]

Madison Hotel wedding with blue wedding details

When I first heard from Kerri, shortly after her engagement, I remembered her immediately from Courtney and Calvin’s wedding in 2017. Kerri was one of Courtney’s bridesmaids, and it was so great to be reunited with these two girls (including two other awesome bridesmaids from both weddings!) We planned for their late fall engagement at […]

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 […]

A Timeless Summer Wedding at Natirar I think it’s fair to say that the tone of any wedding day is set in the wedding suite. I don’t usually know what that tone is for the groomsmen (sometimes thats a big surprise!), but I do know what it is for the bridal party. Romy got ready […]

A Lauren Kearns Bride I know this is a very odd header for a sneak peek wedding blog, but follow me here! I want to take you back to Kathleen and David’s proposal story! One warm January Friday, Kathleen and David went out for dinner to a local Mexican restaurant. With unusually warm weather, Kathleen […]

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 […]

“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 Good Apple I feel like it was ages ago when I first spoke to Kristen and John about their Fall 2018 wedding at Natirar and their rehearsal dinner at Alstede’s in Chester. With John’s family coming from North Carolina, they wanted to welcome their guests with a casual country dinner that included apple picking […]
