Brianna + Kyle • The Ashford Estate Wedding


Brianna and Kyle's wedding at The Ashford Estate was a fairytale come to life. 
The event was beautifully decorated with lush greenery and gorgeous flowers by Peonies To Paint Chips, creating such a romantic atmosphere. The attention to detail was evident in every aspect of the day, from the carefully curated décor to the beautiful accents that complemented the overall aesthetic. 
The Ashford Estate provided a stunning backdrop for the couple's big day, making it a truly unforgettable event from getting ready to their nuptials, to the cocktail hour and reception. 

The beautiful cherry blossom trees (Brianna's vision coming to life) brought a touch of nature to their church ceremony, making it a perfect setting to exchange their vows and a truly magical scene for the couple's walk down the aisle as husband and wife.

Congratulations on your wedding, Brianna and Kyle! 
Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together!

Alexandra + Tommy • New Jersey Botanical Gardens


        Alexandra and Tommy are getting married in Rhode Island later this year and their engagement session was such a great opportunity to capture the excitement and anticipation of their upcoming nuptials. 
The New Jersey Botanical Gardens provided a picturesque background for the couple's photos, making for a perfect summer setting with its lush greenery, colorful flower gardens, and serene surroundings.

It was so much fun to explore the park with them while capturing moments that truly reflected their relationship. 

And with their great chemistry and fun-loving personalities, Alexandra and Tommy are sure to have an amazing time on their wedding day and create even more unforgettable memories.

Congratulations and all the best!

Emily + Brandon • Willowwood Arboretum Maternity Session


Maternity session is such a wonderful way to celebrate and capture the joy and excitement of expecting a baby.  It was an absolute privilege to be able to capture these precious memories for Emily and Brandon and their families to cherish for years to come.
We met at Willowwood Arboretum last June, a beautiful location with its natural beauty and scenic surroundings that made the perfect setting for their session.

Emily & Brandon welcomed their baby girl later that summer.

Morristown Creatives Summer Soirée


I am throwing it back to the summer of 2019 today!
It was then when a group of creatives from the Morristown area gathered together to design a fabulous summer soirée experience to showcase the collective creativity, power, and passion of the Morristown small business community.

Al fresco dining at Fig & Lily Garden outdoor patio, lush florals by Colly Flowers, hand-painted gown by Zahra Batool of ZB Couture, gorgeous hair and makeup by Jacqueline Cicala of Blowout Morristown, unique jewelry pieces designed and handmade by Danielle & Chris of Merzatta, beautiful invitation suite by Jeanine of Once Write, along with a real life couple, Jackie & Matt who, back then, were planning their own wedding, brought our vision to life.

The guests witnessed a mock ceremony followed by a delicious dinner by Fig & Lily Garden, wine by Amanti Vino, beverages by Green Point Juicery and a cake by Swiss Chalet Bakery. 

The soirée aimed to provide inspiration and ideas to future brides and grooms planning their wedding whether they envisioned an intimate gathering or larger celebration.
The proceeds from this event benefited The Seeing Eye.
