Sometimes it’s really funny how things work out- on the day that my family officially moved to Medford, I had Katie and Joe’s engagement session… in Medford! We started out at Cathedral of the Woods in Medford Lakes, which has gorgeous gardens and just completely peaceful and quiet. They brought along their pup, Koda, who was camera ready with his bowtie and just so excited to a part of the engagement session. After an outfit change and a short car ride, we arrived to Lake 3 to watch the sunset. Katie and Joe strolled along the beach and cuddled on the docks, which made for some Nicholas Sparks worthy moments. What a great way to feel so welcomed into my new neck of the woods. I’m beyond excited for their wedding in June 2019!
Meg and Eric have been wedding planning from Chicago, so when their wedding day arrived and I finally got to meet them in person- I was beyond excited. Meg is the kind of girl you've always wanted to be friends with- she's so funny, sweet, and shares all of her emotion- she lights up a room! When Meg and Eric get together their chemistry is undeniable! They are so sweet and kind to each other and I'm beyond happy for them- I can't imagine how happy their family is for them, witnessing a perfect match.
Both bride and groom started at The Westin hotel in Mount Laurel, NJ for their getting ready. Meg and her bridesmaids prepped and shared so many special moments while Eric got.... a haircut in his hotel room! I was so excited for my second photographer, Danielle, that she was going to be able to capture it (maybe a little jealous too)! It's a wedding day first, and soooo much fun. Meg put on her gorgeous gown at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom before meeting her groom outside for their First Look, with their family and friends watching from afar. We were able to capture their bridal party, bride and groom portraits, and family portraits before rain clouds started moving in.
Their indoor ceremony, complete with a beautifully decorated chuppah by Leigh Florist, and the romantic candles and twinkle lights at the Collingswood Grand Ballroom, made for the perfect setting for their "I do"s. Their reception started with the most fun hora, followed by a lively dance floor and soooo much celebrating for our happy couple. Thank you so much to Mr. and Mrs. Gold for letting us capture your best day ever!

If you've been following my work, you've probably noticed this location pop up quite a few times- Historic Smithville Mansion in Mount Holly, New Jersey. My couples love this gorgeous location and it's easy to see why- there's so much variety and looks amazing in every season... not to mention the gorgeous sunset over the lake. Rebecca and Scott are getting married in just a few months and what better way to celebrate than an engagement session. When I saw Rebecca in a white tulle skirt, I was SO excited! I love when couples get a little fancy for their session- it's so inspiring. I was also excited to see Milo, their excited little guy! We had a great evening- see for yourself. :)
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!

When I first met Kelsey and Rob, I was so excited- they were down-to-Earth and fun to be around and just adorable together. They were also getting married in the Winter! Winter weddings are far less common than a Fall or Summer wedding, so I was ecstatic... and lucky for us, there was a dusting of snow on their December wedding day. We started the day in the gorgeous bridal suite at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club for Kelsey's getting ready. Her girls, dressed in cranberry gowns, helped her get ready for her best day ever. Rob and the groomsmen, dressed in gray suits and matching holiday socks (so fun!). Kelsey and Rob met just outside of their reception area for their First Look, followed by their bridal party and family photos just before the sunset. Shortly after, their ceremony took place in the Oval Room, followed by dinner and dancing. I'll always remember the family ties at Kelsey and Rob's wedding. Their entire family was out on the dance floor, arm-in-arm, smiles, hugs, kisses, it was really magical to witness. Congratulations, Rob and Kelsey!
