Amy + Barry • The Ryland Inn Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

This late summer wedding included a few hints of fall colors- the bridesmaids dresses and the gorgeous bouquets brought in those early autumn feels. 
Amy and Barry exchanged their vows in an outdoor ceremony at The Ryland Inn surrounded by their family and friends.

Brenna + Kevin • Bear Creek Mountain Resort Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

It may have been a chilly November afternoon but the cold did not stop Brenna and Kevin from having an outdoor ceremony at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Lehigh Valley, PA.
Their guests braved the cold as the couple exchanged their vows under a gorgeous floral arch by Pink Dahlia Floral & Event Design.

The ceremony was followed by a night of dancing and celebrating the New Mr. & Mrs. Lewis!

Congratulations to The Newlyweds!!

Samantha is 8!!!

Samantha may be 8 but I swear sometimes I think she must be older! 
She said goodbye to Barbies and dollhouses a few years ago! And replaced them with a desk and a laptop! 

She's an amazing reader (seriously, how does she know how to read and pronounce all these words??? Steve and I are not even attempting to spell anything to each other for the kids not to understand!), a math wiz (adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, etc. she gets it! -  math was mama's favorite subject after all 😳), and a pretty good "athlete" (ball dribbling, ball hitting, bike riding... she likes to be active). 

There are so many reasons for us to be proud of her and who she is becoming!

She's assertive and knows how to stand up for herself!
Confident but humble!
Strong but compassionate!
Girly but a tomboy!
Sassy but sweet!
Driven and ambitious!

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! 
8 years ago you made us mama and dadda, and we cannot even begin to describe how blessed and lucky we feel!
You bring so much joy and happiness into our lives! Your little brother absolutely adores you, even though it may seems like all you two have been doing is bickering ;)

Don't ever change! You are one of a kind!

Samantha and I ventured out to a nearby park for a few photos- she looks forward to her
'birthday session' each year :)
Here are a few of my favorite shots as well as some of her last year's adventures!

Kathryn + Jacob • The Manor Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

There was so much love surrounding Kathryn and Jacob on their wedding day.
And it was filled with so many beautiful details. I absolutely loved Kathryn's long sleeve lace gown and the emerald green bridesmaids dresses that were just perfect for this fall wedding- not to mention all the gorgeous florals by Kim at Pink Dahlia Floral and Event Design.

Kathryn and Jacob exchanged their vows during a catholic ceremony at Saint Aloysius Church in Caldwell, New Jersey.

After family formals and photos of the couple at the church we headed to The Manor to capture their bridal party and a few more portraits of the newlyweds.

Celebrating the New Mr. & Mrs. Gilbert continued with food, drinks and dancing, as the reception ensued.

Congratulations, Kathryn + Jacob!!!

Kayla + David • Alstede Farms Engagement Session • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

I was quite excited about this session! 
David reached out to me and mentioned that he and Kayla would be getting married on Halloween 2019 and wanted to do their engagement/ wedding portraits that would fit the autumn theme. 
They chose Alstede Farms for the location and we were so lucky with perfect fall weather and the most gorgeous golden hour!
We spent the late afternoon strolling around the farm, the pumpkin patch and their endless orchards. We even had a special guest appearance, one of their horses that was more interested in Kayla's bouquet than posing ;)

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their session.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

With the gorgeous views of the lake and the most beautiful foliage- fall is definitely one of the best seasons for a wedding at Lake Valhalla Club

Kari + Dave's day was absolutely perfect! From the amazing autumn weather to all the pretty details and first look on the dock, to adding a few Star Wars touches {because Dave's a huge fan 🙂}

The couple exchanged their vows in an outdoor ceremony overlooking Lake Valhalla. It was followed by an evening of dancing and celebrating the newlyweds.

Congratulations to Kari + Dave! 
Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together and everlasting love!
