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!

Gillian’s Wonderland Pier – My favorite backdrop for an Extended Family Beach Session in Ocean City, NJ! Whether you are a local and you simply love this spot or you are vacationing and want to be sure to see all of the amazing locations that Ocean City, NJ has to offer – this is a spot to truly add to your list! Not only is it a wonderful amusement park right on the boardwalk, but it’s a very scenic spot for beautiful portraits and the boardwalk is usually pretty empty past Wonderland because it’s just boardwalk. Also, if you are wanting to make an evening of your portrait session, you can head over to Wonderland Pier when you’re done and it’s fun for the whole family! Wonderland Pier is family owned and operated and if you follow me, you KNOW I love supporting local small businesses (such as myself!).
Ocean City is such a beautiful town and it was the perfect spot for this fun extended family session! I love that they were so full of energy and ready to JUMP on the beach (yes, they really did jump!) Not only that but can you spot the engaged couple? I was so happy to be a part of this wonderful family memory for them and I can’t wait for more fun sessions like this!

A Cape May NJ Beach Session is as magical as they get, where sunsets are eminent and you don’t leave without amazing memories!
This session was absolutely joyful. The sun was setting with the most gorgeous golden glow and their outfits were as if they were styled by a professional! Well, they kind of were! Shout out to Tami & Ryan for always being amazing clients and friends!) The excitement of their son when he got to play “photographer” with my camera filled this session with laughter. (But let’s be real for a moment, his parent’s are photographers and he is no noob to the game!)
As the sun set, we moved our way down the boardwalk and onto the beach. We let the kids play as the sun got lower and lower in the sky, and photographed them in the bright golden beams. It was a moment to remember, and really set the moment, and allowed us all to have a beautiful moment of peace in such a crazy time.
Everyone in the town must have known it would be the most perfect evening because the beach was packed! I have to say, the water was warm as well. Nothing beats jumping in the ocean at the end of a Cape May NJ Beach Session and letting the kids just be kids! It’s also gives Mom and Dad a chance to relax on the blanket and watch them have fun too.

I met Gyllian and Francesco at Renault Winery for their photography consultation and fell in love with them instantly! They are such an amazing couple and they definitely know what they wanted for their special day, A Fall Wedding at Renault Winery! Although the weather wasn’t very “fall” (a scorching 95 degrees!) she was absolutely stunning in her custom wedding gown and their matching Christian Louboutin shoes.
The beginning of the day was calm and collected, but once Gyllian popped her confetti champagne bottle, everyone was ready to party! This was the day they had been waiting for, and although Gyllian was nervous, after their first look Francesco reassured her that she was absolutely stunning! (And she really, really was!)
Gyllian and Francesco, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your memories! I had an amazing time at your wedding and can’t WAIT for you to see your beautiful images! You two are the best!
If you are planning your wedding, you should absolutely consider a fall wedding at Renault Winery. Between the vineyards, the fountains, the gorgeous landscaping you are sure to have an amazing collection of portraits for your wedding album and to display proudly in your home!

Love isn’t perfect. Everyone knows that. Making the decision to love someone is probably the most difficult decision in the entire world, so to do it, takes strength, vulnerability, compassion, and giving someone else your own heart in hopes that they protect it. Barbara and Gary show each of those qualities each and every single day. Sure, they fight, who doesn’t? What’s different about these two, is they never go to bed angry, they don’t even leave the house angry. No matter how upset they are with each other, they always make sure the other one knows – they are loved, and they seal it with a kiss. I have never in my life met such a special couple. The first time I remember meeting them, it was total chaos, and then out of that chaos the entire kitchen stopped spinning, so Gary could have a few seconds to lean in, and kiss his wife on the lips, just to say “i love you, i will see you tonight”… and off to work he went.
This year, they are celebrating 37 years of love. 37 years of chaos. 37 years of happiness. 37 years of joy. 37 years of togetherness. and 37 years of dedication. I admire Barbara and Gary, even when things get crazy, I KNOW that they are perfect for each other, and that their bond will never be less strong than yesterday. They will continue to grow closer, and continue to get to know each other, and continue to find out their likes and dislikes. They will never stray and they will always walk hand in hand into the wind together. Kisses will never stop, and blanket snuggles will ALWAYS be a thing. And of course, getting dolled up for an Anniversary Photoshoot will ALWAYS be a possibility!
I wish them the best of luck, love and happiness from this day to their last day. I am so happy to be a part of their family so I can watch them grow old together, because after all, isn’t that everyones dream? Cheers to them, they are certainly living it!
If you are celebrating an anniversary, and you would like to book an anniversary photoshoot, please email me! I would love to celebrate with you, and to create and capture beautiful images for you and your family to love and adore!
