Ashley + Dan’s Engagement Photos at Natirar

We had such a clear beautiful day at the Mansion at Natirar.  As a complete surprise, Dan proposed to Ashley in the very spot that we started taking their engagement photos at the breathtaking Mansion grounds. There is a sense of grandeur here, yet calm, peaceful, and relaxing. Getting to know Ashley and Dan has been such a great experience, as they are both obviously very much in love, and they are calm and laid back themselves! I could tell how much they adore eachother, and how much the enjoy the outdoors and living in the moment. I am very excited and honored to be photographing their wedding next June at this spectacular location; it will be beautiful to be sure! Thank you Ashley and Dan, and Kim and Bob.

Nicole + Ben’s Engagement Photos

I’ve known Nicole for about five years because she  assisted me with some of my work in wedding photography. Seeing Nicole as an employee showed me right away that she is smart, intuitive, creative, fun, energetic; and knowing Nicole as a bride-to-be and friend has been as rewarding as well. She is articulate, whimsical, compassionate and a great person to know and love. I am so honored and thrilled to death to be photographing Nicole and Ben’s wedding coming up this Fall at the beautiful Natirar in Bedminster, NJ.  I look forward to every time we see eachother! Nicole and Ben seem to be a perfect complement to one another, and I know to expect the unexpected with this couple!

Lauren & Brian’s Engagement Session in Hoboken, NJ

Even though there is a lot of spontaneity with my work during engagement sessions and weddings, some careful planning makes the end result even better! I always appreciate and love to talk to my clients beforehand about many different things, such as style, personalities, their backgrounds, the bride’s hair and makeup, and the end-use of the images. These things are crucial to successful photography. I really do photograph from my heart, and having the opportunity to talk to my clients makes this so much better – and is the reason I love it so much! Lauren and Brian did give me this opportunity, and what I discovered is a really beautiful relationship, a sense of confidence, true friendship and love with one another.  We had a beautiful day in Hoboken, where they both live. There was a sense of quiet and calm, and I was so thrilled to be there with them. Lauren and Brian, it is such a pleasure to know you – I can’t tell you how excited I am to be photographing your winter wedding at The Venetian!!
