Jen + Brett • Waterloo Village Winter Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Winter weddings are so underrated!

Blanket of show, fireplaces and candlelight, hot cocoa bars and snowy-white tablescapes can make the setting so romantic and magical.

Jen and Brett's wedding was my very first winter wedding and I must admit I enjoyed all the season's beautiful details, the smell of the wood burning fireplace that filled their reception venue, and weather appropriate furs that the bride and her bridesmaids wore for wedding day portraits.

Jen and Brett's ceremony and reception were held at Waterloo Village. I could not imagine a more perfect venue for this cozy winter wedding!

Samantha is 6!

My baby girl is 6!
But sometimes she acts like she's 16 😉
She has grown into a smart and independent little lady. This past year brought some big changes and she handled them very well. Samantha graduated from Goddard School and started her kindergarten last September. New school, new teachers, and many new friends! Oh, and let's not forget riding to school on a bus! She's been loving every minute of it!

There were also some changes in her appearance! Because one day (under daddy's watch 🙄) she decided she needed to cut her bangs so she could look like one of her favorite characters - Mal from The Descendants! That did not go well, as you can imagine. We had no choice but to cut her bangs to camouflage the disastrous haircut she gave herself.
However, as we say in Poland- "Nie ma tego złego, co by na dobre nie wyszło" (Every cloud has a silver lining!) and I think her new hairstyle suits her and we all love it!

Happy Birthday, My Love! You fill our lives with so much joy and happiness!
We adore your fun personality and great sense of humor, your persistence, curiosity and eagerness to learn. 
We love you to the moon and back! ❤️

And a very Happy Birthday to Nana Sheila!

Caitlin + Jonathan • Drew University Wedding • New Jersey Photographer

It was such a beautiful day!
Between the gorgeous floral bouquets, flowy dresses and flower crowns it is hard to believe the wedding was right in the middle of the winter!

After Caitlin and Jonathan's first look and a portrait session outside Mead Hall,
they exchanged their own vows during an intimate ceremony at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey, followed by a night of celebrating.

I had the pleasure of photographing Caitlin + Jonathan's wedding for Tori Petrillo Photography.

Holiday Family Reunion • New Jersey Family Photographer

It was such a fun session!

Five siblings and their families traveled to spend the holidays with their parents here in New Jersey.
It was the perfect opportunity for a family shoot as some of them made their way from as far as the West Coast!
I was super excited to spend some time with them and capture these portraits!
