I am a fine art New Jersey 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 film 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.
A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES
You've thoroughly combed through my website, Instagram feed, and you like what you see. So the next step is scheduling the consultation call to learn all about your day and what you have planned!
Once your date is officially reserved, we'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for your day. We're happy to serve as a valuable resource for planning your session to vendor recommendations and more!
Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.
Your engagement session is complete. Next is getting your Save the Dates/Wedding website designed! Shortly your guests will be marking their calendars. Time to get those addresses prepared all ready!
The signature guest book is a great token from your day. This is a place for your guest to grant their well wishes, tips, and serves as a great memento from your day featuring your romantic engagement session!
We check in a few months prior to your wedding day to consult with you and your team in regards to your very special day, details, and day of logistics.
It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be so awesome!
This an exciting event to reminisce and celebrate your day. Let's make it an event! The more, the merrier! We will schedule a time for your ordering session just a few weeks following your wedding.
Following the ordering session, we will be in the process of designing your heirlooms. You can expect your heirlooms to be delivered within six weeks. Upon arrival, it is time to pop some bubbly and celebrate!
the wedding experience
Lillian and Andrew’s wedding was set at the Crossed Keys Estate and Inn in Andover, New Jersey. The ceremony site flowered, the bridal suite overlooks the vast fields of rolling grass. Lillian steps into her dress just moments prior to her first look.
Lillian and Andrew's garden estate wedding day includes a vibrant color palette. Lapis lazuli of Lillian’s Nazar charm contrast so beautifully with the warmth of her bridal bouquet. The vibrance and warmth of the tropics flow through bridal bouquets by Crossed Keys Designs. Sunny bridesmaid dresses by Lulus glisten. Texture of the velvet table runners by Inspired Living by Andrea Martha (Lillian's incredibly talented mom - check her work out!) glow. The exquisite Justin Alexander gown from Bridal Suite Boutique flows so beautifully!

Olivia and Ryan’s wedding ceremony was hosted at the romantic Church of the Gesú, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Prior to their ceremony, the bride and groom hosted their prep at the gorgeous Ritz-Carlton Philadelphia overlooking historic Philadelphia city hall and the gorgeous sites surrounding.
Olivia and Ryan hosted a traditional ceremony for their eyes to take place one one-another as Olivia walked down the aisle. Hand-in-hand with her mother and younger brother, this was an emotive hand off as she met her husband-to-be at the altar.
With emotive, handwritten vows, and a romantic Roman Catholic ceremony, this couple consecrated their love for one another, and were off for portraits at the The Union League, the streets of Philadelphia, and of course, in front of Philadelphia’s city hall.
Following their pics, we were off to their venue, PAFA for their reception.

Laura and Steve’s romantic black-tie wedding was set at the luxurious Crossed Keys Estate in Andover, New Jersey.
Nothing short of extraordinary, Laura and Steve celebrated their very special union and love story on the afternoon of a beautiful May day with their best friends and family by their sides.
A few of breathtaking and elegant details from their day include Laura’s custom engagement rings and wedding bands, Bella Belle Shoes, Pronovias wedding gown, and custom florals designed by Crossed Keys Designs.
A few tears were shed during their first look and portraits. Emotional moments were captured during their parent dances.

about the wedding
Laura & Steve
Jenna and Steve’s elegant, black-tie wedding was hosted at the Fiddler’s Golf and Country Club in Bedminster, New Jersey in June. This private and world renown club and is the only private club in New Jersey: known for its three 18-hole championship golf courses and prestigious history.
Fiddler’s Elbow offers a breathtaking landscape, vistas of the acres of sweeping greens, delicious catering on site, and a beautiful historic estate.
The historic Stone English Manor estate is located in Bedminster, located in Central, New Jersey just few miles East of the Pennsylvania border. The estate has picture-perfect accommodations and grounds on-site for you and your guests while hosting your wedding day.
One of my favorite details of Jenna and Steve’s wedding and their photos are their family formals in front of the estate and of course, their portraits overlooking the green. The climbing ivy, bright summer foliage, and antique architectural details are so beautiful.

The couple focused on incorporating timeless elegance within their wedding day design elements. The bride and groom chose stunning white flowers and greenery in their tables cape design. The couple incorporated their love for their highly energetic puppy Kona within their wedding day stationary.
A few of my favorite details from Kathleen and Joe’s day include sharing their love story, hospitality, and incorporating their loved ones within their day. Their love story started at an earlier time. We were so excited to capture this couple’s highlights at their reception. From the stunning cocktail hour displays to the guest signature cocktails we adored how their details were a nod to their love story.

Cecily & Anthony’s wedding was at The Madison Hotel’s Conservatory in Morristown, New Jersey in October. The Madison Hotel is a great location for your New Jersey wedding with picturesque grounds and the bright Conservatory garden on site.
The Madison Hotel has accommodations for your guests traveling from out of town. Great for those traveling from New York and beyond.
One of my favorite details of Cecily and Anthony’s wedding was her great attention to detail in her flat lay details. Especially the heirlooms included and Cecily’s engagement ring that Anthony gift her. This accented the beading in her gown so beautifully.
Cecily and Anthony’s aesthetic was upscale, elegant, and romantic. View their New Jersey fall wedding photographs at The Madison Hotel below by New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre, and their feature in Red Oak Weddings!
