Imagine saying “I do” aboard a ship surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. A destination wedding on a cruise ship is the epitome of romance, combining the joy of marriage with the excitement of a tropical adventure. As a destination wedding photographer, capturing these moments becomes an exhilarating journey, creating memories that last a lifetime.

Embarking on a cruise ship for your destination wedding not only offers a unique experience but also provides a stunning canvas for your love story. The Caribbean, with its idyllic islands and vibrant culture, serves as the perfect stage for your nuptials. From the crystal-clear waters to the lush landscapes, every moment becomes a picture-perfect memory waiting to be captured.

A cruise ship wedding offers the perfect blend of elegance, excitement, and ease. Picture exchanging vows on the ship’s luxurious onboard venue, followed by a reception with all the most amazing food, drinks and a cake that you could only dream of with the closest family and friends. The ship becomes your floating paradise, with a variety of locations for both ceremony and celebration, ensuring an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.

As a destination wedding photographer, I understand the importance of freezing those magical moments in time. Whether it’s the intimate exchange of vows or the lively dance floor celebrations, my goal is to document every emotion, ensuring that your wedding day story unfolds beautifully through my lens.

Choosing a destination wedding photographer is an investment in the memories you’ll carry with you throughout your life. The unique backdrop of a Caribbean cruise ship wedding adds unparalleled charm to your story, making every image a testament to the love and adventure you share.

There’s something undeniably magical about photos at the Jersey Shore.

The crashing waves, the soft golden sands, and the laughter that echoes against the backdrop of this coastal paradise create an atmosphere ripe for creating unforgettable family memories. But what makes these moments captured through a lens so timeless?

Imagine a portrait framed against the stunning expanse of the Atlantic Ocean or a candid shot amidst the iconic boardwalks. The Jersey Shore isn’t just a location; it’s a picturesque canvas that lends itself perfectly to family photography. Every snapshot captures not just faces, but emotions woven into the fabric of this enchanting landscape.

Families returning year after year to the Jersey Shore create an album of nostalgia.

These photographs aren’t just frozen moments in time; they’re chapters in a family’s story. From toddlers taking their first steps in the sand to grandparents sharing smiles against a breathtaking sunset, each photo is a treasure trove of memories.

Spring blooms with the promise of new beginnings while summer beams with warmth and joy. Each season at the Jersey Shore offers a unique backdrop for family photoshoots. Whether it’s the vibrant colors of spring or the golden hues of a summer sunset, these seasons add depth and character to every photograph.

There’s an unmatched authenticity in photos at the Jersey Shore.

Genuine smiles, heartfelt laughter, and tender moments of connection—these emotions captured against the backdrop of crashing waves and sprawling beaches carry a sincerity that transcends time.

Family photos taken at the Jersey Shore aren’t just for today; they’re heirlooms for tomorrow. They capture the essence of family bonds, freezing moments that will be cherished for generations to come. These images aren’t just photographs; they’re a legacy, preserving the love and unity of a family.

In the end, family photos at the Jersey Shore are more than just images.

They’re encapsulated memories, frozen in time to be revisited, cherished, and passed down through generations. The allure of the Jersey Shore combined with the warmth of family bonds creates photographs that truly stand the test of time—a timeless treasure trove of love and togetherness.

So, let’s capture your family’s story against the breathtaking backdrop of the Jersey Shore. Let’s freeze these moments that will last a lifetime.

Why Family Photos at the Jersey Shore Are Timeless

Hot Cocoa Cup Sessions are a lot of work, but they are so adorable. Your babies are only little once, why not take every possible moment to capture how cute they are!

What to expect at a Hot Cocoa Cup Session, aside from your adorable baby/toddler in a cocoa cup:

•What’s the cut off age? These sessions are perfect for sitters to 4 or 5 years old. We have two difference sized cocoa cups, one for the smaller babies and one for the large toddlers/kids. After 5, it gets a little tricky because of their size, and ability to fit into the cup comfortably.

•What’s in the cup? A mixture of warm water and chocolate milk. Please let me know ahead of time if your child has an allergy and we can adjust our ingredients. We also include giant marshmallows.

•Is it warm in your studio? Yes! We keep the heat cranking during these sessions because it can get chilling and uncomfortable sitting in liquid! We also have towels ready.

•What to bring? Bring a warm change of clothes. A towel or two. Your child’s favorite snack, in case they don’t like marshmallows. (For example, a gingerbread cookie, crackers, etc.) Baby wipes, in case there is drool or food on your child’s face. Expect to be hands on to help things run smoothly!

•What should they wear? You can dress your child in some festive clothes! The best thing to do is have them wear a swim diaper, and a red/white bathing suit, suspenders and a bow tie, fun barrettes for their hair, or even a top hat, or bonnet!

•Do you have props? I do have props available if you would like to use them! I have things like fun headbands, bonnets, etc. (My prop collection is ever growing!)

Hot Cocoa Cup Sessions are a lot of fun for both the parents and the child. We try to make it a good experience, and encourage little ones to splash! They don’t need to look at the camera, I actually prefer them to enjoy the moment and have natural smiles and interact with the marshmallows, and hot cocoa. Which, is just warm liquid. It’s a unique experience that they won’t be able to do forever. Don’t miss out on this, because in the blink of an eye, they’re too big and you’ll miss out. Don’t miss it. Even if you think it’s silly, you’ll look back and be so happy you did it.

Our 2023 sessions came to an end and I am so excited to announce that I will be offering them again in 2024. Currently, I am planning to have them in early November. Save the date, and if you’d like to book early, booking is now open for November 2024.

Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas! This year we are starting the season off by offering our Exclusive Santa Experience in Galloway, NJ! Located in our Barn Studio in the heart of Galloway, we welcome you to come meet Santa with this one on one, private Santa experience!

BokehLovePhotography, Santa Experience, Galloway, New Jersey, Santa Session, Christmas

 This year, Santa will be visiting our Galloway studio in style featuring his magical red suit, complete with shiny gold belt buckle!

No matter your age, the joy that Santa brings is magical. The stories we have all heard growing up, sometimes fade away. It’s our job to ensure that those stories stay alive and live on through our children. The magic of Christmas, the spirit and warmth that fills all of us during this time of year is worth celebrating.

BokehLovePhotography, Santa Experience, Galloway, New Jersey, Santa Session, ChristmasBokehLovePhotography, Santa Experience, Galloway, New Jersey, Santa Session, Christmas

Give your children the gift of magic, the pure joy of meeting the big man himself. These one on one sessions allow your children to be amazed without distractions. They get to talk to him, ask him questions, and play with toys for an entire 20 minutes. Santa will read to your children, answer their questions, ask them how they are doing and I will be there to document it all. Santa is ready to share stories from the North Pole, talk about what the elves are up to in the Toy Shop, and even check if your children are on his NICE LIST!

These private one on one sessions with Santa are 20 minutes long and offer a no rush, joyful experience.
