Engagement Photography

New Jersey Wedding Photographer for joyful couples in love

I am a fine art wedding photographer and a firm believer in love stories. Your wedding photographs are your very first chapter. The wedding photography collection is about carefully capturing the moments of your day in a way that showcases your personal love story at its best.

My journey in photography started when I was studying fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology at 15. Drawn to French couture houses, Dior and Chanel, I adored how the light fell on the drapery of the gowns. I began documenting my journey in New York. I fell in love with the art of capturing genuine moments in the city that never sleeps.

Cecily and Anthony’s vibrant engagement session at the Verona Park, in Essex County, New Jersey photographed by New Jersey wedding photographer Michelle Behre complimented their day so beautifully.

This couple chose for two venues, two outfits to accent their elegant fall wedding hosted at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, New Jersey.
Both venues chosen accented the Madison beautifully – adorned in bright, light, and airy greenery, and blooms, this romantic engagement session was the picture-perfect beginning to their summer and made for beautiful Save the Date cards.

Some of my favorite images captured from their session, include details of Cecily’s custom engagement ring glimmering in the light, the beautiful bright natural florals of the venue, and showcasing their fashion, and statement-making style, with scenes of the couple having an evening out on the town.
