I was looking back over all the weddings from 2021 and I legitimately did not know where to start with blogging! Once my season kicked off last year, it became very difficult to keep up with showing off all the gorgeousness I was shooting (and there was absolutely no shortage of it)! I don’t know that I will ever catch up, but I felt like now was a good time to start sharing some of these, because they are *that* good. I just finished processing my last 2021 wedding (it was on New Year’s Eve) so this felt like an apt time to try to get back into a more regular blogging schedule.
Nicole and Chris are literally everything. They are so fun to be around, doting dog parents, and it helps that they are insanely photogenic. Everything about this wedding was just exquisite. One of my absolute favorite parts was the vintage car that had made an appearance at multiple family weddings thru the years. It belonged to Nicole’s Grandpa, and it really made their portraits. It was such a special touch, and it was so fun to include in photos!
These two are high school sweethearts and actually met in gym class. Chris proposed at a place where I personally also have a lot of history – Ortley Beach (such an often overlooked seaside treasure).
