I have been photographing Cricket and her family for years. I adore her daughters and look forward to our portrait sessions each year. We talk about locations, and what they’re looking for and then the magic unfolds. We decided on Hereford Inlet, one of my absolute favorite locations in Wildwood! They were so excited and so was I. Cricket put together the most beautiful color combination for their outfits. And of course they were going to get into the ocean with them because the memories and the fun make the session!
This year, Char was in charge of picking the session. She really wanted flowers so Longwood Gardens was very high up on the list. However, when I mentioned that the Hereford Inlet lighthouse is actually a garden and it’s stunning, we decided to go there! They were NOT disappointed, and I am pretty sure they found a new chill spot for next summer. Hereford Inlet is such a sweet little surprise. It’s never busy, the gardens are well maintained, there are benches and walkways, and a beautiful view of the ocean. What’s not to love?
The best part of the day was that the sunset set the sky on fire! It was as if the sun just knew we were coming and wanted to make sure we had the very best sky! Can you imagine, it rained earlier in the day? I always tell my clients to trust me when it comes to rain. I watch the radar, and make sure to make a very educated decision on if we postpone the session or not. I told Cricket, while yes it is currently raining that it looks to be clearing up and we should try for it! She gave her full trust to me, and wow, we really did luck out because just LOOK at that sky!
I can NOT wait until next year, and look forward to planning something special for their next session!

Congratulations to Mandisa & Godfrey on their marriage at The Smithville Inn on August 12th, 2022! Their wedding was magical and romantic! As the warm sun was setting on their skin through the floor to ceiling windows, they danced the night away surrounded by family and friends from both near and far.
Mandi and Godfrey chose to get ready in The Barn at Smithville. The decorations are rustic and really match the entire vibe of their Romantic Smithville Inn Wedding. They were both surrounded by their favorite people, and they helped them with everything they needed in order for both of their days to be perfect. When Mandi put her gown on, it was simply perfection. She looked radiant! Godfrey was in his room, getting his finishing touches and the anticipation was brewing! He could not wait to see his beautiful bride.
The ceremony was fantastic and everyone was so excited to see them both. When Godfrey saw Mandisa walk down the aisle with her father, it was very emotional. You could feel the love when they read each other their vows, and their first kiss was nothing short of romantic.
Surrounded by close friends and family, it was only natural that they had to have multiple toasts, song, and dance for their reception! They danced the night away and Mandi even had a dress change to get more relaxed as the night went on.
Congratulations again to the happy couple! I wish you both all of the love, luck and happiness for your marriage!

Congratulations to Devon & Timothy! They planned the most beautiful springtime wedding at The Bradford Estate on a warm day in March. How lucky they were to have the trees, full in bloom with gorgeous pink florals! It was so fantastic to see the two of them giggle in utter joy when they saw each other. Surrounded by family and friends made it so much better. They shared their laughter and love with everyone. The dancing went on all night and it sure was a party to be remembered!
Devon & Timothy are best friends. You can tell that just by the way they look at each other. Devon thought about the decor and incorporated Timothy’s love for fishing in so many little details throughout the day. The wedding cake, custom shoes made by her sister, and even the grooms wedding band – had Marlin’s on them. It was a fantastic blue throughout the day that was both easy on the eyes, and artistically pleasing! The bridesmaids dresses and the men’s ties, the ring box and even the flowers had the most peaceful blue. Everything was perfect for their springtime wedding at The Bradford Estate.
I could not imagine their wedding anywhere else. The Bradford Estate, which is a part of Clarks Landing Wedding Venues, describes their venue as, “Beautifully manicured grounds, exquisite interior and unique private suits that offer the most charming photo opportunities” and they are spot on! This is one of my favorite venues. Between the staff being absolutely perfect, to the entire day being fun flawlessly, this is the perfect venue for anyone in NJ or traveling to NJ looking for a one of a kind, charming country estate wedding.
Congratulations again to Devon & Timothy! I am beyond honored and so happy that I could join in on the fun and spend my day capturing all of your wonderful memories. I with you both the very best of love, luck and success in your marriage together!
This March, we welcomed our baby chicks and lop ear bunnies into our studio for Spring Mini Sessions in Galloway! The joy on all of the kids faces was so amazing! I love how these beautiful animals just lit up their faces with joy! Spring truly is a magical time where all things start to grow.
As you know, baby chicks and bunnies do grow up. We are so happy and excited to welcome the new chicks as new family members! BLP will continue to incorporate them into sessions, but will also be enjoying their eggs as well. This exciting new journey as chicken owners is definitely new to us; I can not believe how fast they grow. It felt like in the blink of an eye they started growing more colorful, larger wings and being able to hop around and walk and even run! Of course, my husband is in the process of building an amazing hen house! (Which of course will need to be photo ready! Yes to the cute flower boxes, and YES to the adorable barn door in the front!)
If you are interested in these Spring Mini Sessions in Galloway please let me know!I may be opening up another day for these because I just love them so much! But my little chicks are going to grow fast, so it would be within the week or so.
If you are interested in purchasing chicks or bunnies of your own, I highly recommend reading up on how important it is to take care of them as family pets. There are so many places to purchase these beautiful animals, but keep in mind that they are a HUGE responsibility! One that we are so excited to dive into!
Keep an eye our for future mini sessions on our instagram, Facebook and our Facebook Group! Links below!
Annalyn and Hector’s wedding was a harvest chic celebration that took place at Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City, NJ. The couple exchanged their vows at the beautiful St. James Roman Catholic Church in Ventnor, NJ, surrounded by their friends and family.
She and Hector embraced the harvest chic theme with crystals bringing positivity, energy and good luck to their wedding day. Annalyn also wore a sun and moon on her earrings and skulls on her engagement ring. So many other amazing decor adding to the atmosphere of the night before Halloween. They also made sure the kids had special baskets to keep them entertained!
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests made their way to the reception, which was held in the Vineyard Ballroom at Renault Winery. The room was decorated with crystals, candles, and other harvest chic elements, such as candles and beautiful florals creating the perfect atmosphere for a night of enjoyment.
The reception was filled with dancing, laughter, and celebration. The couple shared their first dance as husband and wife to a romantic song, and the guests showered them with love and congratulations for their money dance where friends and family pay to dance with the bride and groom, and that money helps them start their new lives together!
The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a delicious meal and the most amazing atmosphere surrounded with love. The couple also had a beautiful wedding cake, which was decorated with the same flowers from the brides bouquet and topped with the best cake topper that read “Till Death”.
It was a truly magical night, and Annalyn and Hector were overjoyed to be surrounded by their loved ones as they began their new life together. Of course, they had to finish the evening with a night portrait with their wedding party that featured a champagne bottle and some creative lighting to make the most epic of images for them! Annalyn and Hector also enjoyed Renault Winery’s beautiful ambient lighting throughout the property, and we were able to create stunning night portraits that are simply flawless.
Overall, Annalyn and Hector’s harvest chic wedding at Renault Winery was a beautiful and unforgettable celebration. The stunning natural setting of Renault Winery, delicious food, and perfect atmosphere all combined to make it a perfect celebration of the couple’s love. Annalyn and Hector were overjoyed to have had such a wonderful day. Thank you to both for trusting me with their memories! Cheers to many more wonderful years!
