ELOPEMENT Ah, winter in the city is so romantic, isn’t it? Grace & Adam met during their time in the Peace Corps in the Caribbean (so cool!) almost 10 years ago. They’ve moved and lived all across the nation since, now living in the Big Apple. While they’re planning their big reception to be a […]

It’s finally time for your engagement session and you’re wondering – what on Earth do we wear?!
Engagement sessions are so much fun and provide so many benefits. They give you a chance to meet and interact with your photographer in-person before your wedding day (moi!), and most importantly, prepare you with the poses, prompts and confidence needed to nail your portraits at the BIG event.
There are a lot of factors that play into choosing which colors and/or patterns to wear to your engagement session, including the time of year, your skin and hair tones and colors of the location.

Swooning over Alexis & Nick’s engagement session in Morristown. We ventured around the Morristown Green, the stunning grounds of Jockey Hollow restaurant, and even nabbed a few shots and champagne pops at nearby Speedwell Lake.
Wedding Day I am so in love with this beautiful, boho, backyard wedding in New Jersey! The September sunflowers were in bloom, the weather was still warm, and the people knew how to party. Could you ask for a better combo? Arielle & Brian hosted their dream wedding at home on their farm. Yes, home FARM! […]
This loving couple joined me on a perfect weather evening in Asbury Park, New Jersey for their sweet summertime engagement session! The breeze and the water temperature were just beautiful. I wish I’d brought my bathing suit to hop in! Jill & Tom were so laid back and down for any location and any pose suggested. My favorite part was strolling through the sandbar with them for some giggly and cute kisses shots. I also really loved the dramatic and industrial background of the old Asbury Park casino building. We got to that section of the boardwalk just in time before the sun went down! I am so excited for Jill & Tom’s wedding at The Shore Club next spring. I can’t wait to capture even more stunning shots of this photogenic couple of cuties!
When preparing for your family photo shoot, it’s important to coordinate your outfits for a cohesive look. Select a color scheme and use colors that complement each other. Avoid everyone wearing the same thing to look too matchy-matchy and logos. Some should be in patterns, while others should be in plain colors. Consider the location you’re taking photos, the time of year, your skin tones, even where in your home you plan to hang these photos. Lay out everyone’s outfit next to each other (if you can) beforehand to see if there’s a nice flow.
