The sun was shining, the birds were out, and Johnsons Locust Hall Farm was in full bloom with sunflowers and peach trees! It was such a beautiful day and I could not be happier with the images! Loran and Joe are so in love, and you can tell just by the way they look at each other. I wish them nothing but love and success in both life and love! Loran and Joe, thank you for trusting me to capture your memories! Having a Johnsons Locust Hall Farm Engagement Session was SUCH a fantastic idea! I love this location!

I highly recommend having a Johnsons Locust Hall Farm Engagement Session! (Don’t forget to buy some apple crumb pie! It’s delicious!)
Fabienne and John sipped their delectable cappuccino’s under the covered patio with plush blankets and warm hearts. This quaint cafe, shares special meaning to the two of them, which is why they chose this location to capture this amazing time in their lives. Not only can they see the church they will be married in through the trees from the patio, but they were also engaged here on March 30, 2015 as well! John planned the entire thing perfectly, as if it was out of a movie! Fabienne said that John has a violinist and a pianist play as he sang an Italian art song called “Morgen” (Tomorrow) by Richard Strauss to her (that he translated to English for her of course). If you hadn’t figured it out yet, John is a professional Rossini Tenor who preforms for various opera companies, he teaches private voice lessons AND one heck of a romantic! ::swoon:: They spend quite a bit of time here trying different gelato’s, enjoying the cider, and of course reminiscing about that perfect day!
Before reaching Caffee Galleria, we walked along the colorful path by Lambertville Station. The leaves were bright and gorgeous, and we were all so happy we were able to catch the fall foliage in November (which is totally hit or miss in NJ) ! The weather had it out for us, but rain will not keep us away from capturing these beautiful moments. In fact, I think it made it more romantic. There is no better way to spend a rainy day than snuggling with that special someone wrapped up in a cozy blanket and something warm in a cup!
Fabienne & John, thank you for allowing me to capture these special moments for you! I am looking forward to your amazing wedding in 2016!
When a Bride tells me she would like her engagement session to be at two different locations, I get so excited! Engagement sessions are so much fun when they have two totally different looks. The beach is always hard though, especially when it is hours before sunset. There is nowhere to hide from the sun, it’s bright, and it’s really a huge challange. Luckily for us, we went to the Brigantine Jetty, where there are some bulk heads to hide behind. (Believe it or not, when I was a child, there was water all the way up to these bulk heads, but since then, the water has moved out, and the Jetty is now accessable on one side all the way out!) It’s definitly different from when I was a kid, but it made it a great place to take pictures when the sun is super bright! The next location was none other than the Historic Smithville Village! I mean, you can’t go wrong here! When Krista showed up with this adorable green floral skirt, it was perfection! These two are such cuties! The one thing they said was, please – no corney photos! I think they were executed pretty darn well if you ask me – and I see no “corney” photos here, just 120% cuteness!
Krista & Alek – I hope you love these photos! I sure do!!!

Stacy and Jeff had a very special engagement session. Stacy was the winner of my Pin it to Win it – Free Engagement Session Giveaway that I held on Pinterest! I had a huge amount of people trying to win this session and she was the special one that was randomly chosen. I am so happy I had this oppourtunity to meet both Stacy and Jeff. They are so in love, and seriously a gorgeous couple! We met down by the Ocean City fishing pier, and I was basically blown away at how TALL this pier was! I was also shocked that I had never been here. Growing up in South Jersey you would think I would know about how awesome this place is.
After we were done by the pier, we went down to the jetty. It was a perfect day and I am so happy with how these turned out!
Thank you both for trusting me to capture this moment for you and I hope you love these images as much as I do!
