Michelle & AJ's Spring Lake Engagement

I wouldn’t say Spring Lake NJ is particularly close to me, it’s about a 1.5 hour drive actually. But for these two sweet souls, it was so worth it! Michelle & AJ were the perfect pair; you know, the right amount of sweetness and goofiness needed to make an incredible engagement session. I enjoyed every second with these two while we did their session on the beach. I must say they really know how to go with the flow and make the best of any situation. What started off as a cloudless day, turned into a gloomy border line rainy evening but we continued on with the shoot and got some killer beach shots. It totally helped that the beach was completely empty, don’t you think? I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Fall Inspired Wedding Editorial at the Ryland Inn

If you’re looking for inspiration for your fall wedding, then look no further! This fall editorial inspired shoot happened just as we were entering the month of November. The Ryland Inn in New Jersey is the perfect place. It is surrounded by huge trees which turn a beautiful yellow, red and orange autumn hues in the fall. Out inspiration for this shoot was the autumn season. We played a lot with warm colors for everything from the invitations to the table decor. Gold and soft creams were our accent colors which went so beautifully with the warm tones. You simply can not go wrong with a fall wedding. It tends to be a bit cooler, but not too cold where you can’t have the ceremony and reception outdoors. We used a long sleeve wedding gown which was embroidered with the most beautiful floral detail. I am so grateful we had such an amazingly talented team that pulled this beautiful shoot together. You can find links for each vendor below. If you’re a New Jersey bride I would highly recommend checking them out!
