Jersey Shore Beach Portraits are the very best activity to invest in while on vacation! I say activity because it’s so much more than just a photo session. Having fun with your family and documenting every moment is so special. You are making fabulous memories and will always remember this wonderful time with your family. I grew up a the beach, and it is my favorite place to be. Living in South Jersey has always been the best. I’ve been lucky enough to see the beach in all of the seasons, eaten ice cream and pizza after beach visits and walked on the boardwalk with cotton candy, Johnsons popcorn! I’ve had Polish Water Ice on warm summer nights, and I’ve sat on the beach talking for hours at night listening to the waves crash on the beach. To say I am lucky is an understatement.
As a professional photographer I am able to share my love of the beach, and of family with my amazing clients who come down here for amazing Jersey Shore Beach Portraits! My favorite place to photograph is in Ventnor, however, all of our beaches are beautiful! My favorite time is one hour before the sun starts to set. The beaches are mostly people free, and the sun is setting and giving us that beautiful golden hour every photographer craves! The water is the warmest in July and August, and after each session I always encourage some water fun! What’s a trip to the beach without that?

Family Beach Photography in Longport, NJ is always my favorite! Longport is such an amazing small town. Not a lot of people know about it and the families that visit keep to themselves. The beaches are always clean, and it’s not one of those super crowded shore towns, so having your photos taken on the beach during the summer in Longport, aren’t a hassle! They’re peaceful and very relaxing! Not only that, there are SO many amazing things to do at the Shore in the summer! You can make an entire family evening out of your session. There is Lucy The Elephant, a historic landmark in Margate just a few streets over, as well as some of the very best restaurants! To name a few, some of my favorites are Ventura’s Greenhouse Restaurant in Margate, Steve & Cookie’s By the Bay also in Margate and Domenico’s in Ventnor!
Creating memories with your images should be the top priority! Before that of course, you should always chat with your photographer on what to wear! There are so many options and I can guide you on what works best for your family, and of course, you can wear those stunning outfits out on the town, to dinner (and of course, the boardwalk!)
Summer time is a super popular time for beach portraits, so if you would like to schedule your Family Beach Photography in Longport, NJ reach out to me as soon as possible!

I can’t wait to speak with you about Family Beach Photography in Longport, NJ!
David contacted me earlier in the week to chat about documenting his Congress Hall Marriage Proposal to his girlfriend, Amy. (Spoiler alert, she’s a fiance now!) David had a few really amazing ideas on how he would propose. At first it was going to be on the beach by the lighthouse, but the wind was a bit much. He decided to propose on the lawn at their hotel, Congress Hall. Which by the way, is one of the most amazing Hotel’s in Cape May! (Good choice, David!) He planned out their entire proposal, down to the champagne, ice bucket and flutes (even the chairs that faced the beach for a gorgeous sunset!) I heard it was a very nice bottle of champagne, but you should know that David is one of the world’s leading wine writers and just recently wrote a book titled, “But First, Champagne: A Modern Guide to the World’s Favorite Wine”. (Seriously, what a lucky lady to have a fiance that knows all about champagne and wine!)
As I waited for them to arrive, getting text updates from David, I did my best to hide in the bushes by the parking lot. Hotel guests were staring at me, as I am sure I looked… well… pretty shady standing in a parking lot, hiding behind bushes with a hoodie up and holding a giant piece of black metal (yep, it’s my “stalker lens” as I like to call it. Perfect for documenting proposals from far away and not being noticed!) (Although Amy told me later on, that she saw someone in the bushes with a camera… I think she knew all along this would be the day for a marriage proposal!)
Congress Hall was phenomenal, I met with Casika who unfortunately couldn’t wait to watch the proposal, but she was so excited that this was happening at their hotel! If you are even THINKING about it, stop thinking and do it, have a Congress Hall Marriage Proposal! They were so fantastic and helpful! Ask for Casika!
So, When it came time to pop the question, it was magical. David and Amy hugged and kissed, and all the love was there! I was secretly crying in the bushes because well, who wouldn’t!? When I told the hotel guests, I wasn’t some crazy person, I was documenting a proposal that would go down at approximately 6pm… of course they stayed to watch! Everyone loves a happy ending! After that, we went down to the beach to take some beautiful portraits to capture their happiness! It could not have been a better evening for a Congress Hall Marriage Proposal!
David and Amy, Congratulations on your engagement! I wish you both nothing but success in love and your future together! Thank you SO much for trusting me to capture such an intimate moment between the two of you!
If you are visiting the Jersey Shore, vacationing from Philadelphia or around the world, make this summer memorable by booking a beach session with Bokeh Love Photography! Family Portraits in Brigantine NJ are extra special for so many reasons. Growing up on the Jersey Shore, aka The Beach, we sometimes take for granted just how amazing it is! Feeling the sand between your toes, smelling the fresh ocean air, and getting kissed by the sun all day long. What’s NOT to love about it? Well, Let me tell you the VERY best thing about a beach session on the Jersey Shore! You can spend your entire day on the beach, enjoying the summer sun. Afterwards, you can go home, eat dinner, take a shower, relax… and then meet me at the beach for your portraits! You see, the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. So, in the afternoon is when the sun is the hottest, and directly over head. We love backlighting our portraits when the sun is going down in the west. We showcase the gorgeous beach dunes, and the love beautiful sky in the East over the ocean! It’s our favorite time of the evening… the golden hour right before the sun sets.
So, for one day only, we will be hosting family portraits in Brigantine NJ right on the beach and for the small investment of only $99! What does that get? You will receive gorgeous family portraits to remember your Jersey Shore visit, as well as 5 digital downloads from a password protected online gallery delivered within 48 hours of your session.
I can’t wait to meet you and your family…. on the beach!
Beach Portraits in your favorite Jersey Shore town? Yes, Please! Hello summer, I’ve missed you! I have missed the sand in my toes, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore, but most of all, I’ve missed those amazing beach portraits. You know the ones, where everyone is going home, clearing the beach and the cool ocean breeze is kissing our faces as we head toward the jetty to catch the beautiful sunset! Yes, that’s exactly what I’ve missed! I’ve missed them so badly, and cannot wait to get out there again! I want to capture the smiles, the giggles, the kisses and the raw emotion that the Jersey Shore brings out! Kick off those sandals, put on the sun dresses, dress the little man in a straw fedora and make this the summer of memories! It’s time for Beach Portraits in your favorite Jersey Shore town!
Beach portraits are more than just pictures, they’re more than just snapshots, they’re capturing your family having fun, enjoying the moment and the warm summer air. They’re about spending the moment together and having it, and keeping it close! The Jersey Shore is a magical place that brings family together and keeps them together! Maybe it’s the cotton candy or the Johnsons popcorn, the salt water taffy or the long nights by a fire.. whatever it is enjoy it, embrace it, and capture it forever!
This year, Bokeh Love Photography will be focusing on memories in hand. We want you to enjoy these moments and show them off to your family and friends. For instance, making irresistible collections to choose from along with add on’s as well as ala carte. We hope you’re as excited as we are, about this amazing experience!
We’ve decided that we don’t want to charge per person. It’s silly. You pay for my time, to come out, and take gorgeous memorable photos of your family. I don’t want to scare you off and tell you that a family of 4 will be this much and a family of 6 will be this much. Bring them all, let’s have a beach portrait party! I love to see happy families, and promise you I will make it a fun time for everyone! Of course, we have kids, so we understand how things go. Kids turn into Crankenstein! (Seriously, read the book, they totally do!), so they get to go first, when they’re happy, excited and in a good mood. Then we move on to Grandparents, Parents, and then break it down into small groups until we are done. It’s works fabulous and it’s a great time!
When I get home that night, I cull them! That means, I go through all of the images and only save the most amazing ones.
From there, I edit them and upload to a password protected website where you get to see all of these amazing images! It’s get better, trust me! Not only can you purchase prints, but you can also order wall art too! Canvases, Fine Art metals, etc… It’s all done directly through the website, and whatever you order gets shipped to your home! So that means, if you were here on vacation, and your family went back home, pass the website around and everyone can order their own products and get it at their own house!
Not only that, but when you order all the gorgeous images, you get to capture your memories from your vacation at the Jersey Shore and support a local photographer! (Thank you so much, it means the world to me!)
