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!

Why Beach Portraits?

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!

We want you to hold your images, why?

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!

How this will work:

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!

Carefully curated online proofing gallery within days of your session:

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.

Online Galleries:

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!

Supporting a local small business:

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!)

To give you a rough idea on pricing:
Session fee: $150
8×10’s: $55
Gift Prints (5×7, 4×6, wallets): $25
Digitals are available for $550

If you are asking, “Why are the digitals so expensive?” Here is the answer:
Bokeh Love Photography is a full-service photography company based in Galloway, NJ. Offering an array of products such as heirloom albums, metallic gallery wraps, wood prints, lockets, etc. In addition, pre-session consultations, proof viewing/ordering sessions, with the option to pick up or have your products delivered to your front door. We pride ourselves in customer service and go above and beyond 100% of the time. We believe that handing over digitals on a disc, usb, or downloadable over the internet is doing our clients an injustice. In conclusion, providing you with the most amazing products you have ever seen, so you and your family can swoon over the quality and know that you hired a true professional is what drives us. However, if you would like to buy them, they are $550+tax, but we highly recommend a photo album instead. ūüėČ

Beach Portraits in your favorite Jersey Shore town!

We all have hopes, dreams, aspirations, and desires. One of my biggest, most passionate dreams in life is to be able to grow old with my husband. I always joke with him about how we are going to one day have a beautiful porch with rocking chairs, and we will rock all day long holding hands, and that will be the highlight of every single day. To have him by my side is the most amazing thing I could have ever dreamt of, and I cannot wait for the day we renew our vows. (And yes, we JUST got married in September of 2013, but I will love him until the end of my days).

Today, I had the honor and privilege to photograph a 40th anniversary, vow renewal in Cape May – ON THE BEACH. It was such a beautiful day! I honestly could not have asked for a better day than today. All last night it was raining (with the occasional thunder and lightening). It was enough to scare our kids, and enough to have me begging for sunshine. My begging must have worked because today, we had clear blue sky‚Äôs, 60’s, and sunny! It was gorgeous!

I cannot tell you how much this made my dreams run rapid in my head. They have been together for 40 years and their love shines through like no other! Their kiss made my heart beat and I was so proud to be able to capture this beautiful event in their lives. It just goes to show you, a legacy is not something to forget. Thank you Frank and Peggy for allowing me to capture your legacy! I wish you the best of everything for you both and your every growing family!

XOXO,
Lauren

40TH ANNIVERSARY | VOW RENEWAL| CAPE MAY, NEW JERSEY | BOKEH LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY | CAPE MAY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

Weddings

Filed in:

Workshops are everywhere, you just need to tap into the right area and attend. I was lucky enough to see that Hello Gorgeous Photography (my wedding photographers and dear friends) were throwing a workshop in Cape May, NJ at the most amazing hotel/wedding venue ever – Congress Hall. Now, let me explain my excitement here. First off, I love HGP. My husband and I chose them for our wedding. They’re amazing ladies, who I enjoy dancing the Cupid Shuffle with, laughing, and basically all things photo. Secondly – CONGRESS HALL!!! Okay, so, then the planning begins. I see posts and get excited because not only will it be at Congress Hall, but the couple is gorgeous, a previous bride of theirs who will be wearing a Vera Wang dress, Bailey of Just Be. designed all the fancy paper goods (menu cards, invitations, save the dates, adorable name tags with glitter, you name it, if it was paper, she did it!). Then the florist was Savannah’s Garden! OMGEEEEEEE seriously! To top it off, Jamie Cakes, who I had no idea who she was, but she makes the most amazing cupcakes – I have ever tasted – to – this – day!

So, without any more delay, I want to show you all the amazing photos I was able to take from this workshop. I can’t tell you enough how happy I am, how proud of myself, and how much I highly reccomend the HGP Workshops!

XOXO,
Lauren
