Veronica and Nick

Being from New Jersey, Veronica and Nick wanted the beauty of the shore but not the beach.  We chose an off beat location that had the feel of the ocean and beach complete with a pier.

Now I get to celebrate their wedding with them tomorrow!

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!!!

IMG_2819-2 fb

Since we had a particularly chilly and snowy winter, I thought it to be appropriate to say goodbye to winter in style. This is the first year in my almost 10 years of photography that I had the pleasure of photographing a few weddings and a few engagement sessions in the snow! The only other time I have photographed portraits in the snow was a family photograph of my own family years ago. I had so much fun and the couples were amazing and so willing to walk and even play in the snow for the sake of some epic photographs!  And the first photograph is one I took at Longwood Gardens prior to one of the snowy engagement sessions.

Married in a quiet town at an old inn with a beautiful garden in the backyard. This couple went for elegance after having a blast at Longwood Gardens for their engagement shoot.

Christine and Kevin: Getting to Know You

What a great family.  We were privelidged enough to photograph their daughter and dog as well.

Their Engagement Session was so much fun.  I love it when couples pick unique different locations.  Christine and Kevin picked Gardner's Basin in Atlantic City.  Such a beautiful and varied location, we had boats, water, rocks, grass, and trees.

Stay tuned for their wedding images!!
