Ashley and Tyler were married at The Gramercy at Lakeside Manor surrounded by all of their closest friends and family, not to mention an incredibly fun bridal party. They are locals to the area and chose Divine Park in Spring Lake as their portrait location.   It’s a significant location to them since they live close by and have spent a lot of time there together, so it was important that the park be part of their wedding day!  I loved photographing the sweet moment of their first look on the br...

I always ask my couples questions like “What do you love most about each other?” And “What are you most looking forward to?” Kylie told me that Luke is extremely romantic and his answers only confirmed that!  He said he’s known for years that Kylie is the person he wants to spend the rest of his life with and he couldn’t wait to be able to say, "That's my wife!”  Finally he gets to say that every day for the rest of his life!

Hoboken, NJ holds a special place in Kylie and Luke’s hearts - the...

Brisk and beautiful is how I'd describe Allie and David's engagement session! The cold didn't phase these two love birds at all! Walking around central park in the winter is so fun, especially when you're with a couple who is clearly so in love! I can't wait for your wedding in May!!! Read a little below about their story!

How did you two meet?

A friend introduced the two of us over a casual lunch break from work in July 2014! Dave's long-time friend, Nico, was my Media Planner at my first adverti...

The Ashford Estate is one of my favorite wedding venues so I was thrilled to learn that Lara and KC had planned to spend their entire wedding day on the grounds!  It’s a beautiful blend of rustic and elegant and the couple’s choices in details and decor perfectly accented the different spaces in which each part of the day took place.  

It was a chilly November day but it was like they didn’t even notice the cold - they were so excited to be husband and wife!  Lara made a stunning bride in he...

I was so excited for Gina and Ryan's wedding day! When I met Gina, I just fell in love with her sweet and funny personality. I actually wasn't able to meet Ryan because he was living in Kentucky at the time. As soon as I met him though, I could instantly tell that they were the perfect match!  With the sun shining bright, beach photos, an outdoor cocktail hour, friends, family and love it was the most perfect day! 

Gina and Ryan said their vows at a traditional and beautiful church. The...

As I was driving to Ramapo, the clouds were closing in and the rain started dropping...I thought for sure I was going to get a call any minute from Caryn and Tim asking if they could reschedule!  Little did I know they were totally down for a rainy day engagement session...woohoo lets do it! Even though it was raining, mother nature created the most beautiful serene atmosphere for us with just the right amount of mist. It felt like we were in a movie! Caryn and Tim are so in love and so happy to...

It was one of those beautiful early fall days and I got to spend it with Michele and Matt in Central Park. Growing up in New York, you take for granted the beauty of this city! I got there a bit early and just wandered around, witnessing all of the quirky talented musicians, artists, dancers, a proposal and just the hustle and bustle of life...it was invigorating! Ok enough about that and on to Michele and Matt. We had such a great time continuing to wander around the park finding the best littl...

Cross Estate Gardens is like a Disney dream! Complete with a beautiful garden and little chipmunks running around behind Emily and Justin, it was just perfect! 

Emily and Justin met during our senior year at Rider University in September of 2013. They were celebrating being back at school with all of their friends within their Greek life community (Justin was in a fraternity & Emily was in a sorority on campus), but they didn’t know of each other. A mutual friend introduced them during a campus e...

Nothing like college sweethearts! Josh and Carissa met at West Virginia University where they both attended college. Josh's roommate, Nick, told him he met a couple of good looking girls in the laundry room that he made plans for them all to hang out. Nick would later introduce Josh to Carissa. When Josh came up to Carissa's room she greeted him with "What's your last name so I can add you on Facebook?"

Having lived in the same dorm only one floor apart Josh and Carissa spent a lot of their time...

Where do I begin to say how much fun I had with Ashley and Jeff! I knew when I met them the first time we would have a blast! We had an exciting night planned with some West Village glam to champagne bottle popping Hoboken fun! 

Ashley and Jeff are just the perfect fit for each other, fun flirty and totally in love :) We started off in the West Village walking around the beautiful streets surrounded by little shops and brown stone buildings...stopping traffic wherever we needed to for a quic...
