[Family Beach Session Lavallette, NJ]

I just love a good beach session in the summer. I got to photograph this beautiful family a few weeks ago and we had the perfect weather! We did have to fight off some flies though, but we powered through!

I think my favorite part of this session was any time the adults were trying to make little Brianna laugh. They were dancing around, using silly voices and blowing bubbles and once this little angel started laughing, it was amazing!

This group was so much fun to photograph and spend a night on the beach with to take pictures! I’m holding on tight to summer with this session!

[Kim + Mike’s Sweet Summer Wedding Beachwood, NJ]

I first met Kim and Mike way back in March when we got together to discuss their upcoming wedding. And I can’t believe that their big day has come and gone already! Kim and Mike, along with their families, got married on a private ceremony on a boat! How cool is that?! The next day, they gathered together with even more friends and family to celebrate!

The reception was held at the Beachwood Community Center and we had a beautiful view of the river. We did have to fight off some rain, but mostly the weather was perfect and we had the best backdrop for photos. And rain on your wedding day is good luck right?! πŸ™‚

Kim and Mike’s parents both made truly beautiful toasts and it was so great to see these two wonderful families coming together. There were first dances, of course, that were so sweet and plenty of clinking glasses to get Kim and Mike to kiss!

Everyone made their way to the dance floor and the dancing probably could have gone on all night! Kim and Mike both looked incredible and so happy together the whole day! Congratulations to the newlyweds! πŸ™‚

[Nick + Nicole Philadelphia, PA]

A few weeks ago I took my first ever real trip to Philly (minus going to the bus station and an Enrique Iglesias concert) to photograph Nick and Nicole’s engagement session! And it. was. PERFECT!

Nick has been my friend since we were 2 years old when his family moved onto my street, two doors down from me. We instantly became best friends and our friendship has made it through the last 24 years! When Nick and Nicole got engaged, I was so so happy that he had found the love of his life, and when I met Nicole, I could see why she was the one!

Fast forward to the engagement session when I really got to spend some time with the love birds and truly see how happy they were! It was so sweet!

They had outfits picked out and locations around the city that they wanted to take pictures at and they looked incredible! We did have some wind and rain showers to get through, and after hiding out from the rain for a little while, it cleared up and we got to take more adorable photos!

It was so much fun getting to explore Philly with Nick and Nicole and I am so glad that I got to capture their love!

Congratulations on your engagement! πŸ™‚
