Sara Jean and Nick were married at Blue Heron Pines in Egg Harbor City, NJ on a beautiful crisp night in November! It couldn’t have been a nicer fall night! The air was cool, the sunset was gorgeous, and in the evening everyone gathered around a fire on the patio to stay warm. It was the kind of night where hanging out with close friends, dancing the night away and eating yummy cake was the best thing EVER!
If you couldn’t tell from their pictures, Sarah & Nick are Irish! Their wedding colors were ivory and kelly green! They are so many beautiful touches to their wedding that respresent their heritage, like their wedding rings in particular! They’re so beautiful. Nick had her engagement ring custom made in Ireland, as well as the bands! Instead of the typical diamon, they went with an emerald with diamond accents. I love when the ring is custom to what the bride likes, it makes it so much more personal and meaningful! (Good job, Nick!)
Blue Heron Pines is a local venue, 15 minutes from where I live, and where my studio is. I absolutly adore the people that work there, and enjoy photographing gorgeous couples on their property! Their willow tree is to die for, and their golf course goes for miles! I have never had a bad experience there and hope I get to keep going back! Sara & Nick really did pick an amazing place to say their vows and join their familes. This venue will always hold a special place in their hearts as it was the location that they joined as one.
Congratulations Sara Jean & Nick, and thank you for trusting me with your memories and allowing me to share this moment with you both! xoxo

Jillian and Ken decided to get married at Clarks Landing Yacht Club in Delran, NJ. It is an absolutely GORGEOUS venue with the most amazing staff! Their food is delicious, their ballroom is amazing, their rooms are just MADE for weddings, everything is so pretty. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have natural light in your getting ready room. This place was made with natural light in mind, and I couldn’t be happier with the images we’ve created. I love showing off all the pretty details that a bride prepares for her wedding day. The shoes, the veil, her dress, the flowers. Every little thing is just perfect!

It honestly felt like I was meeting up with two old friends. We just clicked automatically. During their consultation we began to plan their engagement session. They wanted to climb ontop of a building to capture the sunset. Later on, unfortunatly plans changed. They did however end up taking my husband and I off roading with their amazing dog, Ruger in their jeep! It was probably the most fun engagement session, and most down to earth experience I had ever had. Lauren and Justin weren’t about frills, or anything fancy. They wanted something real. Their dog, was probably the most amazing part of the day. He was like an extremely well behaved child who went with the flow and did what he was told. They made a sign to go around his neck for their save the dates, and he actually stood there like a handsome little boy. Here are some photos from their engagement session:
So for their wedding day, I knew I was going to have an amazing time!
It’s so perfect here. The historic towne of Smithville is quaint, and just set up for photos. It’s gorgeous, and so are they!
I have to say, that Lauren and Justin, are such an amazing couple. I know I talk about couples in love all the time, but they really are so much in love, it’s hard not to get emotional around them. Their wedding had me a bawling mess. So many tears, all day long. So many moments where you couldn’t help but cry because what was happening was just so beautiful. Weddings like these, are key reminders of why I do what I do, and why I am so passionate about capturing these moments.
I could chat all day about how perfect they are, and how amazing their day was, but I am just going to show you the photos.
Lauren and Justin, thank you SO much for trusting me to capture your day, and for allowing me to be there and enjoy these moments with you! I wish you nothing but love and success in your future together!
Which happens to be one of my favorite venues! I love the location, the staff and the grounds. I have never been treated better at another venue, and neither have my couples. I write that a lot about this venue, but I just cannot stress enough, how much of an amazing venue it is, and how well they take care of their brides and grooms. After all, it’s customer service like this, that you should really look for to host your special day.
When Amanda first contacted me to shoot her wedding, I asked her who I can thank for the referral. I was shocked when she told me to thank my husband! Apparently, they played volleyball together! I am instantly blown away by anyone who plays volleyball on a team, because I could not play volleyball to save my life! (Amanda is amazing by the way! Just ask her for a friendly game of Vball!) When she told me she was having her wedding at Ron Jaworskis Blue Heron Pines, well let’s just say I couldn’t have been happier!
Amanda & Marc’s wedding could not have been on a more perfect day! The sun was shining, and the grass was so green! I was looking forward to getting right to the bridals because that is usually my favorite part of the day, but when I saw all of her gorgeous details, I had to take my time and play! She had two different shoes (seriously, such a smart idea!), a pretty perfume bottle, special cuff links that the groom’s sister would be giving him later that day, a necklace from her grandmother and so much more… Amanda was so prepared for her wedding day! I try to help out as much as I can with this, and she listened 150%! Going above and beyond for my clients is so important to me, so when I hear of tips and tricks for your wedding day, or how to better prepare, of course I share as much as I can!
The day went so smoothly, and everything was on time, if not early! Thankfully we had an amazing timeline! Her colors were bright pink, which really popped with the green grass. I love everything about her wedding, and how amazing the theme transpired throughout. The pink was found on the cake, in the custom sunglasses, the groomsmen’s vests, the centerpieces and napkins and more!
At the end of the night, we had a sparkler exit and even did some light writing!
All in all, I truly believe she will cherish these photos forever, and I am so happy that she chose me to capture this special day. Amanda and Marc, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your memories and being such amazing clients!
I cannot wait to go back to Ron Jaworskis Blue Heron Pines!
