Fox Hill Farm Wedding, Honesdale, Pennsylvania: Jamie and Marissa

Early on a Saturday morning, with our families in tow, we left for Honesdale, Pennsylvania to photograph Marissa and Jamie's wedding. The wedding was at the gorgeous Fox Hill Farm, where every detail has been thought out, not to mention the flowers everywhere and the mountain view.  Jamie and Marissa decided on a First Look so we could capture their family portraits before their ceremony. JUST as the First Look was wrapping up, the skies opened up and it downpoured. These brides were so calm about it! We ran for cover, grabbed umbrellas and kept shooting! The rain continued for a while, so we found a cozy greenhouse for more photos of the brides, and finally, the skies cleared in time for the ceremony. Their ceremony took place just feet from a lake, overlooking the barn/reception area. Towards the end of the ceremony, Jamie surprised Marissa by singing her a song, and had even passed out the lyrics for everyone participating in the ceremony to join along. It was such a sweet touch! On the way to the reception, we snuck into a fenced off area where the cows are kept. (How cool is that?) We were at the highest point of the farm, and from there we had gorgeous sunset colors with a touch of fog. The reception started off with heart-felt speeches and continued with dancing in the barn. The string lights and barn decor was simply amazing. Congratulations Mrs. and Mrs. Place!

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!

Indian Spring Country Club, Marlton, NJ Wedding: Paul + Katie

Paul and Katie were married early August and were blessed with the most gorgeous day- a gentle breezy and a bright skies. Their navy, yellow, and gray wedding came together with Katie's favorite flowers- sunflowers of course! It was the most smooth, go with the flow sort of wedding day I think I've ever experienced! It was just stunning... let's let the photos speak for themselves!

Katie's a big fan of sunflowers- her gorgeous bouquets are from Leigh Florist.

When I saw there was a bridal show coming to The Flanders Hotel in Ocean City, NJ- I knew I wanted to be a part of it. The Flanders is one of my favorite places to shoot, and it's also where my husband and I were married four years ago- needless to say, it holds a very special place in my heart. The architecture is gorgeous, the staff is friendly, the food is delicious, and the hotel rooms will make you wonder if you could somehow live there forever.

Carousel Park, Delaware Engagement: Heather & Tom

I love everything about Heather & Tom's wedding plans. Their wedding will be my first December wedding and of course we are all hoping for just a pinch of those big, fluffy snowflakes that make for gorgeous photos- but not too many! I was so excited when Heather told me she wanted a snowy engagement session. We started watching the weather forecast and hoping for snow. It would be predicted... then it didn't snow, and again... and again... until finally one day IT HAPPENED! We met at a gorgeous location that Heather and Tom found, Carousel Park in Wilmington, Delaware. Highlights of their engagement session included a large party of feathered friends that crashed a couple of photos (see below), as well as a soft, dusk sky to end the session. Heather and Tom were willing to do just about anything to get the shot including not wearing jackets for quite some time, holding snow, and handling wildlife (well, almost). I'm so excited to see these two again, on their wedding day!

Downtown Moorestown Engagement: Lindsey and Mark

I met Lindsey about four years ago in grad school. Lindsey is hilarious, fun to be around, and just adventurous in general. Now fast forward to 2012, Lindsey and I were driving to an engagement session at the gorgeous Wissahickon Trail, she was assisting me (yes, she's creative too, talk about the total package) and she was telling me about a wonderful guy she met and how amazing he was- enter Mark. Mark is great. He's sweet, kind, AND adventurous, just like Lindsey. They love to travel, cook, and enjoy life together. They are perfect together, and if you know them, I'm sure you agree!

For Lindsey and Mark's engagement session, we met on Main Street in Moorestown- one of my favorite places. Then we headed to Boundary Creek just before sunset to finish up and I'm SO GLAD we did. We ended up with one of the most gorgeous sunsets I have ever seen! We stayed until the sky was completely black, soaking up each bit of the pink and purple sky. The last shot included in this post is my all-time favorite sunset photo. 

I couldn't be happier to be photographing Lindsey and Mark's wedding at the Glasbern Inn, in July (woohoo a fellow July bride, like me). It's going to be nothing short of amazing.

Smithville Mansion Engagement: Meghan & Kyle

Meghan and Kyle's engagement session at Smithville Mansion took place just about one year prior to their wedding date- in October. What's not to love about October? Perfect temperatures, leaves changing... no doubt about it, I spend every weekend shooting in October, and I love it! We had a gorgeous sunset on this particular evening with such soft light- very romantic. I loved it so much, that I began the blog post in reverse :) 

Meghan and Kyle are so sweet and so adorably in love. Kyle makes Meghan laugh with just a simple look. They danced, laid in the grass, and just enjoyed each other's company.  I cannot wait for their perfect day at the Moorestown Community House in just eight short months!

I'm in love with this shot!

The Merion Wedding, Cinnaminson, NJ: Rob and Laura

As a wedding photographer, you never know how you'll meet your next client. I met Laura's mother when my husband and I closed on our house in August of 2013. I was about to have a baby the next month and life was hectic! (Ps- Never move when you are 30+ weeks pregnant!) Laura's mother was bright, cheery and sharing in the excitement of our new house and soon-to-be new baby! We had plenty of time to talk during closing and she told me her daughter was engaged! Some time went by, and me, Laura and her mother were chatting all about her wedding! It was such a pleasant surprise because Laura and I were such a great match! It's so important to love your wedding photographer because they are going to be next to you so much of the day! Now let's focus on the most important people here- Laura and Rob.

I knew Rob wasn't thrilled about having to commit to being photographed for an hour for an engagement session-honestly, most guys aren't crazy about it... but the results are always the same- they LOVE the photos and they actually had fun! Haha! I love it! We even got to incorporate Rob's killer car for their engagement session AND their wedding day! 

When their wedding day rolled around in late October, it was perfect. There was just a little breeze in the air and the sun was shining. When I walked into Laura and Rob's Palace Ballroom that day, I was taken back. Everything they have been planning was all coming together. Gorgeous centerpieces, tables named after wine, framed artwork of loved ones past, the matching uplighting...  you could tell that they truly poured their souls into all of the planning. It also helps that The Merion, in Cinnaminson, NJ does such a beautiful job setting up their gorgeous ballroom. Laura and Rob saw each other for the first time down the aisle, it's always such an exciting moment, and for me it NEVER gets old. My heart is racing and there's so much excitement in the room! After a beautiful ceremony, we headed to the patio to get some photographs of the bridal party and headed back in so they could enjoy their cocktail hour. This gave me plenty of time to photograph all their gorgeous details. The party started and they had quite a dancefloor. We were able to sneak out to get some wedding photos with Rob's car, which made him so happy! I imagine Rob has a framed photo of this shot in his garage (please tell me yes!). 

As I write this blog post, it was Laura's birthday yesterday, Rob's birthday today, and Valentine's Day tomorrow- these two have a lot to celebrate!

Smithville Mansion Engagement: Paul & Katie

In late October, I met up with Paul and Katie for their engagement session at Smithville Mansion in Eastampton, NJ. Now, I've shot at Smithville Mansion MANY times, and I seriously never get tired of it. There is so much variety to work with in such a short distance... but this time was different- maybe that's why so many clients request it! Paul and Katie are the adventurous-type, who love to go hiking and exploring and they showed me areas of Smithville I didn't know existed... and in which time, Katie did so in heels. She's my hero! Paul and Katie brought along a special member of their family for some fun, their awesome dog Chesney! Such a cutie and so cooperative ;) I'm so excited for their wedding in August! 

Enjoy this image... then imagine me behind the camera saying, "Chesney, are you hungry? Do you want to eat dinner? Do you want a treat?"
