Batsto Village, Hammonton, NJ Engagement: John and Kelly

John and Kelly met while they were both working at Wegmans- and just like my favorite store, their love is wholesome, exciting, and keeps you coming back for more! ...Okay, so I'm seriously in love with Wegmans, but we'll save that excitement for another day. We headed to Batsto Village in Hammonton, New Jersey for John and Kelly's engagement session. Not only was the weather perfect, but there also happened to be a bagpipe player (not pictured) just about the entire time. We joked that John hired him just for their engagement session. John and Kelly are just as adorable as they photograph and I cannot wait until their wedding day next October!

Unionville Vineyards Wedding, Ringoes, New Jersey: Lindsay and John

It was late in September and it was a hot one when Lindsay and John tied the knot at the gorgeous Unionville Vineyards in Ringoes, New Jersey. They both got ready in the farmhouse alongside their best man, John's brother, and matron of honor, Lindsay's best friend. Lindsay's getting ready involved lots of pale pink and rose gold, which seemed fitting in farmhouse at Unionville Vineyards. The bridal suite is pale pink and absolutely stunning. Lindsay and John opted not to see each other before the ceremony but they shared a special moment as they held hands while standing on opposite sides of a door- talk about anticipation! The ceremony was just beside the farmhouse and officiated by Lindsay's Godfather. It was during that time I learned that Lindsay and John had known each other for a while but hit it off while at ShopRite one day and the rest is history. After the ceremony we went into the vineyards for portraits of the new Mr. and Mrs. Reilly before they joined their reception underneath of a tent. As the night went on, the party headed indoors in the Winery Building. What an absolutely beautiful day! Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Reilly!

The Flanders Hotel Wedding, Ocean City, NJ: Dorian and Samantha

Dorian was living in Arkansas, Samantha in New Jersey. While browsing through fitness hashtags on Instagram, Samantha came across a photo of a man in a Phillies hat, leading her to believe he was local... little did she know the man she would fall in love with was many miles away. They would begin a long distance relationship with countless phone calls, plane tickets and lots of planning to be with each other as often as possible. Finally, their long distance relationship became much easier when Dorian moved to New Jersey. They planned a gorgeous wedding at The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, New Jersey. The day started with thunderstorms but the weather cleared and I was SO glad so we could get some portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Terry on the beach and boardwalk. It's been such a joy planning with Samantha, when I left the night of the wedding I told her I was going to miss her, and then she reminded me we live five minutes from each other. It was an honor to witness two families coming together and celebrating such an amazing couple starting their lives together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Terry! This is just the beginning of an amazing chapter!

South Jersey Wedding Photography, Gibbsboro, New Jersey: Oriana and Melanie

Melanie and Oriana are in a beautiful season of life. Just a few months ago, they were planning a wedding, while in a long-distance relationship. Now they are under one roof and married! Both brides got ready at the Hotel ML in Mount Laurel, NJ before heading off to Lakeside Manor in Gibbsboro, NJ for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and a tented wedding reception.

My absolute favorite moment of the ceremony was the ring exchange. Most couples fumble around and have a lot of trouble getting the ring on their spouse because of well... wedding day nerves! Melanie had some trouble putting on Oriana's wedding ring, because she had the wrong hand altogether- her right hand. I didn't notice at the time, until Oriana told me. I immediately scrolled back through the photographs and started laughing! Wedding nerves are no joke!

Congratulations Melanie and Oriana!

The Bradford Estate Wedding, Hainesport, New Jersey: Jeff and Anna

When I asked Anna to describe her wedding, she answered, "We are a pretty laid back couple and are just looking forward to a fun day full of love." There's no better way to describe their day. When I started with Anna in the bridal suite at the Bradford Estate in Mount Holly, she was as calm as can be with the biggest smile on her face. She joked and danced with her bridal party as she got ready for her day. She read pages upon pages of love notes from Jeff, he'd been writing her a love note every day in July, leading up to their wedding at the end of the month. Soon more and more family would gather, with more and more hugs and high fives. The mood was so full of love and lightness. The mood only changed once their surprise guest had arrived- laughter... and singing, lots of singing as ELVIS walked through the doors at the reception. Jeff is a huge Elvis fan, so Anna arranged for The King to make an appearance. Much love and laughter to you, Anna and Jeff!

Smithville Mansion, Mount Holly, New Jersey Engagement: Jeff and Anna

It was late-April when I met Anna and Jeff at Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly for their engagement session. I love Spring. It’s a time of renewal and new life. There were gorgeous blooms everywhere- we even found the most beautiful purple flowers for a portrait of Anna’s engagement ring. Anna and Jeff are so genuinely fun to be around. They were super laidback even while they were in the process of moving and planning their wedding. I can’t wait to share their wedding with you!

I'm in love with all the blooming flowers at Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly, NJ.

Ocean City, NJ Wedding, The Flanders Hotel: Don and Tracy

When I pulled into The Flanders on Tracy and Don's wedding day, I saw a man wearing a shirt that said, "I can't keep calm, my daughter is getting married!" I knew that (a) I was in the right place and (b) this wedding was going to be awesome! We found Tracy getting her finishing touches done at Divine Images Salon, inside the Flanders Hotel. We headed up to her room for her getting ready and saw the cutest assortment of bridesmaid dresses (I love when bridesmaids pick out their own dresses!) and the most adorable Maid of Honor dress. Tracy's MOH was her gorgeous, adorable, and very witty daughter, G. After Tracy was ready (and so stunning, might I add), it was time to head to the Crystal Ballroom in The Flanders Hotel for the ceremony. I love the ease of having everything in one venue- it makes it easy for the guests to have everything within walking distance! After a heartfelt ceremony, we headed onto the boardwalk for bridal party and bride and groom photos. We got traditional walking down the Ocean City boardwalk photos, visited Playland Castaway Cove to visit the rides, and to Hamburger Construction Company (a special place to Tracy and Don). We even made it back to The Flanders Hotel in time for Don and Tracy to enjoy some of cocktail hour. After fun introductions from Over the Top, they went into their first dance, followed by speeches. G (the cutest MOH) gave the best speech and set the bar high for all MOH's after her! Don, Tracy, and G- congratulations!

The Flanders Hotel, Ocean City, New Jersey: Wedding Album

Wedding albums are so important. They are your first family heirloom- a treasure that will be passed on to your children, and your children's children. So when I decided to find the perfect wedding album company- I feel in love with Red Tree Albums. They are timelessly elegant, yet stylish and so high quality. I typically offer my couples leather, but when I saw Red Tree's vibrant Costal Linen collection- I knew it was perfect for Mike and Amanda's beach wedding at The Flanders Hotel, in Ocean City, New Jersey. The linen color is named "seashell," and matches Amanda's bridal bouqet perfectly- meant to be.

See the gorgeous details below!

One of my absolute favorite details about this album is that it is personalized with the bride and groom's name- and I love the font! The album comes in a really soft wrap to protect it- I only wish my pillow was as soft.

Sand Barrens Golf Club Wedding, Swainton, NJ: Paul and Christy

Christy and Paul's wedding day started off in Wildwood for the bride and groom's getting ready. I started with Christy and her bridesmaids, while my second photographer started with Paul and his guys just blocks away. The room was buzzing with excited and even with so many girls getting ready in one house, Christy was ready ahead of schedule! I'm pretty sure she was just beyond excited for her First Look with Paul. They had their First Look on the boardwalk in Wildwood with their bridal party watching in the distance. Once they saw each other, we started their formal photographs on the boardwalk, beach, and then also at their venue- Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, New Jersey. It was such a brilliant idea on Christy's part to do the First Look on the beach and do more photos at the golf course- it added so much variety to their photographs. After a heartfelt ceremony overlooking the greens, the party started. The dance floor was buzzing the entire night in celebration of the new Mr. and Mrs. Chladek! Congratulations you two!

Race Street Pier, Philadelphia Engagement: Paul and Christy

I met up with Christy and Paul at Race Street Pier in Philadelphia for their engagement session. On a windy day, we strolled just below the Ben Franklin Bridge to capture some gorgeous images for their Save the Dates and to get them comfortable in front of my camera. The benefit of it being a windy day is that we had the pier practically to ourselves. I love the bright blue just under the bridge- made for gorgeous photographs!
