A mild day in November plus Jessica and Mike created one of my favorite beach sessions of all time. Enjoy a look into their love.
Long Beach Island
Rain didn’t stop the love. Gabbie and Todd made the best of a rainy day in October to celebrate their engagement. We dodged the raindrops and ran around Johnson’s Locust Hall Farm, laughing and smiling the whole time! Enjoy.
I had a wonderful time hanging out with Dana and Jerry, chatting about their upcoming wedding. Very excited to spend more time with them and their families. Enjoy their love.
Mini sessions are a great opportunity for me to get to know a couple before their wedding day. Enjoy a look into Katie and Pat, their love makes me smile!
I loved getting to know Lindsay and Mike at their engagement session. We chatted and created some amazing moments together this past weekend. I can’t wait for their wedding next fall! Enjoy looking into their love photographed at the Sayen Gardens in Hamilton Township, NJ.
September has been a photographers dream. The weather has been absolutely great this month! I was excited to make the trip down to Cape May to meet up with Nicole and Matt. We celebrated their love in front of Congress Hall, where they will be married next year, and over on the beach, capturing a beautiful golden sunset. How adorable are these two?!

Devon and Dominic are locals at heart but currently live out of state. They were visiting for the holiday weekend and met up with me at Barclay Farmstead for a mini engagement session before hitting the beach. I can’t wait for their beach wedding next year in Hamilton, NJ!
The Beach, Avalon, NJ
Bonnie and Bill had a summer fling in Avalon a few years ago. After a spending the weeks after Labor day apart, they knew they had to make it official and become an exclusive couple. They still spend summers in Avalon and enjoy walking the beach and jetty in the photos below. They plan on making a life together in Linwood, where Bill bought a house he is currently renovating. I am very much looking forward to their wedding next June in Sea Isle City. They make love look easy!
I met up with Tannia and Paul at the Mercer County Park Boathouse a few days ago. What a joy! I can’t wait to capture their wedding next March. Enjoy!
Engagement Session : Allie and Connor :: Philadelphia, PA (Washington Square Park, Spruce Street Harbor Park)
Even though I take photos year round, nothing compares to that first planned spring shoot of the year. The trees are green, the sun is shining and my couples don’t have to shiver between frames. Allie and Connor had the perfect day for their engagement shoot. The weekend before it rained both days, and the days after it was a sweltering 90 degrees. The bright skies matched their bright smiles.
Isn’t that ring stunning! It totally matches Allie’s personality. I am not sure if Connor picked it out himself, but he definitely should take the credit.
A few weeks before our planned photo shoot, we talked about what they wanted to capture that evening. We mixed in some traditional portraits along with some detail shots at Washington Square Park. Washington Square is one of my favorite places to photograph in Philadelphia. It is less crowded than Rittenhouse Square and has these great brick walls around the edges. The backgrounds are great for any kind of shoot, from weddings, to engagement sessions, and even headshots.
After walking/dancing around the square, we headed down towards the river, finding some interesting streets and architecture along the way.
After a quick change of wardrobe at the Hilton, we finished off the evening at the Spruce Street Harbor Park where we had a bit more fun swinging in the hammocks and walking the river.
(when the last photo of the evening is your absolute favorite!!)
Allie and Connor will be getting married at the Hilton at Penn’s Landing next spring. The ballroom looks over the very park where we finished photographing that evening. We plan on doing some awesome nights shots since the park is lit at night. Follow my facebook page for more sneak peeks and to help stay connected.
