Engagements

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! It turned out to be one of the warmest November days I can remember, and the park was bustling — but we still managed to get some beautiful shots sans-tourists! 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….

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…

Chic & Modern Skylands Manor Engagement

Ringwood, New Jersey | I had the best time with Cait and Blake at their engagement session at Skylands Manor! Crazy enough, the forecast looked good all week until the day of our session when thunderstorms were predicted at the exact time we’d be shooting. I frantically texted Cait, and thankfully we were all able…

Dreamy Sunset Lavallette Engagement

Lavallette, New Jersey | Carleigh and Bryan’s engagement session… ohhhh my gosh where to begin?! When Carleigh asked me if they could use her family’s boat for their engagement photos, I couldn’t have said yes fast enough! I love when couples incorporate unique elements during their session, and being on the water always takes the…

Effortlessly Chic West Village Engagement

West Village, New York | I had the best time running around the West Village with sweet Alex and Matt for their engagement session! It was a particularly toasty summer day in the city, but these two didn’t let the heat get to them and kept it cool the entire shoot. Alex and Matt have…

Spring Cross Estate Gardens Engagement

Bernardsville, New Jersey | When I say I am obsessed with this engagement session, I mean it! Vivian and Simon’s initial vision for their engagement photos was amongst the cherry blossoms at Branch Brook Park. However, we slightly missed the window for peak bloom and decided to pivot and shoot at Cross Estate Gardens instead…

Sunrise Brooklyn Bridge NYC Engagement

New York, New York | One of my favorite places in the city to shoot is on the Brooklyn Bridge — however, it is also one of the craziest (and at times, scariest!) places to be at any time other than sunrise. There are so many people on bikes and tourists taking photos that shooting…

Spring Princeton University Engagement

Princeton, New Jersey | From the first time chatting with Maria and Michael, I knew they were going to be the absolute sweetest! I was so excited to meet them when the time finally came for their engagement session. All week leading up to the day we were planning to shoot, the weather looked beautiful…
