Modern City Winter Wedding at Maritime Parc

Jersey City, New Jersey | Another gorgeous winter wedding this January! As much as I do love a cozy snowfall, I am loving these mild temperatures even more because it means my couples aren’t freezing on their wedding day — and we’re able to go outside for portraits, even if only in five to ten…

Joy-filled Destination Wedding in Aruba

Noord, Aruba | Where to even begin?! I should start by saying that I am not typically a destination photographer — however I am always up for one or two destination weddings per year, especially when it happens to coincide with 1) cold, nearly-winter weather at home and 2) my (almost) 30th birthday! I first…

Chic & Elegant Wedding at The Madison Hotel

Morristown, New Jersey | What a beautiful day celebrating sweet Colleen and Dylan!

Colleen…

Sunrise Belvedere Castle Engagement

New York, New York | My final sunrise engagement session of the year was so much fun with Ally and Will! These two are so incredibly sweet and I clicked with them immediately, despite the early wakeup time! Ally is a nurse at Sloan Kettering, so she’s used to heading into the city in the…

Autumn Central Park Sunset Engagement

New York, New York | What an absolutely beautiful fall day with Frances and Nicholas in Central Park!

Frances and Nicholas have been dating for…

Autumn Central Park Sunrise Engagement

New York, New York | What a beautiful autumn morning with Carrie and Joe in Central Park! Right after sunrise is my favorite time to shoot in the city, and although my body hates the 5am wakeup, my heart adores the gorgeous photos we are able to capture with so many less tourists to dodge….

Classic Oceanside Wedding at The Breakers Spring Lake

Spring Lake, New Jersey | What a perfect day for a coastal wedding! Like so many of my October weddings the forecast threatened rain in the weeks leading up, but as we got closer to Julia and JT’s big day it seemed we’d have nothing but sun and clear skies! Although these two were ready…

Autumn Riverside Wedding at Lambertville Station

Lambertville, New Jersey | What a gorgeous day celebrating Brooke and Mike! About a week or so before the big day, Brooke texted me feeling nervous about the weather. She asked if she should get clear umbrellas, what to do in case of rain, etc. However we ended up with the most beautiful weather, truly…

Autumn Princeton University Engagement

Princeton, New Jersey | It felt like ages since I had last been in Princeton for an engagement session, and it was so great to be back! Princeton in the fall is unmatched — the foliage, the light, everything is picture perfect. And so was meeting Alexa and Greg for the first time! These two…
