Grounds for Sculpture Wedding Session, Hamilton, NJ: Joe and Jamie

Jamie and Joe's first professional wedding photograph includes the Easter Bunny... seriously (how cool!). They were married late March surrounded by close family at the Voorhees Town Center in a private ceremony. Immediately after, they got in line to take a photograph with the Easter Bunny, wedding dress and all. Jamie and Joe decided that they would like to celebrate their marriage with a wedding session at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey.  If you've never been there, I would highly recommend a day trip- it's so completely peaceful and a great mixture of art and nature. We had such an amazing time in our own private golf cart complete with a tour guide! Jamie and Joe are such a fun, down-to-Earth couple and crazy about each other. A couple of weeks after our session, it was so much fun sitting with them in-person to reveal their wedding photographs. It was so sweet to hear Joe compliment Jamie on how beautiful she is, and to hear her compliment how great his hair... I mean, how great HE looked too! Congrats Jamie and Joe!

One "must-have" shot when you shoot at Grounds for Sculpture is along this tree-lined path. It was early April, so the trees were bare, but it still made for such a gorgeous shot.

Gotta love more bamboo and my all-time favorite tree at Grounds for Sculpture- I'm not a tree expert by any means, but I love a good weeping tree- makes for gorgeous backdrops for wedding and engagement photographs.

Like any photographer, I shrieked when I saw a gorgeous cherry blossom- and that engagement ring... great job, Joe!

We ended the session how any good session ends- with a peacock in the background.

Columbus, NJ Engagement: Mike + Emily

As wedding season approaches, and my maternity leave comes to an end, I'm getting pumped up about getting back out and shooting.  Although Spring is officially here, I just had to share this dreamy Fall engagement session with Emily and Mike. I have to give the future groom all of the credit for finding this awesome location with the colorful foliage that all engaged couples dream of for their photos :) I am beyond excited to capture their big day in July!

The Waterfall, Claymont, DE Wedding: Tom + Heather

Tom and Heather were married early December- although it felt like early October! I met Heather and Tom last year at their snowy engagement session at Carousel Park in Delaware- take a look here. They are such a fun couple and so adorable together! When I found out I was pregnant this spring, Heather was one of the first people I told! Her wedding was the last of the 2015 wedding season and I didn't want to let her down. We came up with a plan to bring a second photographer (which is pretty standard) as well as a third photographer to take my place should I need to be whisked away to the hospital. You never know when babies will come and since I was 34 weeks pregnant, there was no room to play around, although I would have been in good hands- Heather and so many of her friends are nurses :) Turns out the day of her wedding I felt better than I normally did, and pretty much forgot I was pregnant! It was really awesome having the addition of two other fabulous primary photographers to get not one, but two additional perspectives (and a bunch of extra photos for Heather and Tom). We did all of the bridal party photos at gorgeous Gibraltar, a country estate home with garden areas and fun architecture. We were running out of time before the sun was due to set, but with such an awesome and cooperative bridal party, we were able to capture the amazing colors of the sun setting. Next we were off to a local attraction-  Santa's house, for some festive photos with Christmas lights. Lastly, we were off to the Waterfall in Claymont Delaware for their reception- the same place Heather's parents were married- how sweet! It was an unforgettable evening for Heather, Tom, and all of their guests as they danced the night away. I'm so happy I could be a part of it (and have their wedding completely edited and in their hands before the baby comes!)

The Flanders Hotel Bridal Show

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.

So... what do you bring to a bridal show? Here's my list!

- various professionally printed canvases

-new prints for frames

-my Best of Weddings 2015 plaque from The Knot

-lots of delicious chocolate

-a cake stand to display my new adorable, mini business cards from Moo, and wedding collection packages

-fresh, pink flowers

I met some awesome fellow vendors, as well as some fun brides planning their dream weddings. 

Here's my display in all of it's glory at The Flanders Hotel! Don't you just love my mannequin neighbor? I was next to a fun group- Boogie Nights from Atlantic City.

The Golden Inn Wedding Photographer: Jess + Justin

On a perfect June day, Jess and Justin exchanged vows with their feet in the sand, on the beach in Avalon at the Golden Inn. Jess's bridesmaids wore shades of blue, which was absolutely stunning and very appropriate for this beachside wedding. The guys sported tan (very beachy) and finished the look with suspenders- I love suspenders! Jess and Justin's first dance was one of those first dances that make photographers tear up behind their camera (this happens more often than I care to admit!). I wish nothing but the best for this happy new Mr. & Mrs.
