Boston Public Garden Engagement | Courtney & Ryan

Boston, Massachusetts | We shipped up to Boston for Courtney and Ryan’s engagement session, and of course it happened to be one of the coldest weekends of the year so far! Thankfully it was 40° the Friday that we were shooting, because the next day was about 10° — and the following weekend was even colder! Courtney and Ryan powered through the cold and did

Brooklyn Bridge Park Engagement | Katie & Matt

Brooklyn, New York | January sessions definitely aren’t for the faint of heart, but Katie and Matt totally killed it in the cold!⁠ These two first connected on Bumble (just like me and my own Matt ) — and funny enough they’re both originally from California, and even had some mutual friends, but didn’t meet until they were both living in NYC. They’ve been together

The Farmhouse NJ Wedding | Dominique & Brian

Hampton, New Jersey | The happiest holiday season, celebrating Dominique and Brian’s wedding day at The Farmhouse in Hunterdon County!

Bernardsville, New Jersey | This was my LAST engagement session of 2021! It’s crazy to believe that 35+ engagement sessions later I’m nearly done for the year — but still two more weddings left before ringing in 2022. Lucie and Jon first met when they were working together as teachers! ⁠ As Lucie tells it, “We were pretty good friends for the first two years

Spring Lake Beach Divine Park Engagement | Alyssa & Bob

Spring Lake, New Jersey | My final Spring Lake engagement session of the year was truly the best of both (or rather, all 3) worlds — downtown, park, and beach! And for this sweet couple, the beach is truly such a meaningful part of their relationship. Alyssa and Bob first met through work, and bonded over the fact that they both grew up so close

618 Restaurant Wedding | Nicole & Brian

Freehold, New Jersey | Nicole and Brian had such a beautiful day for their wedding — exactly 10 years and a day after their first date! Although it was early December, the cold weather (and snow!) fortunately held off and these two were able to tie the knot alongside their closest friends and family at 618 Restaurant. These two first met thanks to Nicole’s father,
