welcome to the blog

romantic, light & airy, authentic love stories.

Before 2017 I had never been to Stone Harbor. I am so happy that I scheduled that first family beach session down there, because it has quickly risen to be one of my favorite beaches since then! It is the perfect, quintessential sleepy little beach town (with just a bit more hustle and bustle in […]

I always love when I find little hidden gem beaches along the coastline – and Avon By The Sea is for sure one of them! Despite visiting Asbury and Ocean Grove regularly, I had yet to shoot at this stretch of beach until this session – and it did not disappoint! I especially loved that […]

On cold winter days I always reminisce about my family photo sessions on the beach. Whenever it’s 5pm and dark outside, I always dream about how in a few short months at 5pm I will sometimes just be getting ready to leave the house to go shoot the evening’s sessions instead of holed up in […]

Name another couple who can make 30mph winds look this good. I’ll wait. No really though. For this gorgeous Barnegat Light engagement session, Joanna and Ray toughed out some really difficult wind and extremely chilly temperatures. With wind chill, it was probably around 30 degrees or so for the entirety of this hour long shoot. […]

This post is a late one coming, but I promise it was worth the wait! Island Beach State park is literally the most perfect place for engagement photos, and these are 100% proof of that. Aside from being a perfect place for photos, A7 (or Tice’s Shoal) as it is lovingly referred to by boaters) […]

It seems like only yesterday that I was photographing this soon-to-be family of three on Long Beach Island, and now this past summer they are a soon-to-be-family of four! As usual, Valerie and Josh were literally the sweetest people I have ever met. They are insanely good natured – even when out on the beach […]

Sean and Amanda had a gorgeous proposal on Island Beach State Park, and I am so excited to share these beautiful photos with you! Just in case you are unfamiliar with the area, IBSP (as the locals lovingly refer to the park) is several miles long and showcases some of the most beautiful ‘untouched’ beach […]

Ahhh wait until you see this amazing proposal that I had the pleasure of shooting in Long Branch, New Jersey – right near Pier Village! Brian reached out to me a couple weeks before this proposal was set to go down. I actually had already met him, because I had done another proposal where he […]
