Jen and Bobby met 8 years ago while they were undergrads at Stockton University in Galloway, NJ. It’s a classic story: Jen lived in the apartment right above Bobby, they fell in love, and the rest is history.  Actually, history is still being written as they will marry next year! I recently spent the afternoon with them where it all began.  We strolled the trails around campus which meander around Lake Fred, the unofficial mascot of the school.  Jen and Bobby are just a wee bit competitive, and anyone from the Philly area will appreciate the rivalries these two share with their most loved sports teams.  Enjoy this preview!

    This is soooo beautiful xoReplyCancel

I love these two images from Julie & Gates’s wedding from this past Saturday at the Stone House in Warren, NJ. The first is mere seconds after they were announced as officially married. The image isn’t technically perfect (as I was walking backwards, moving, and shooting at the same time) but the moment is so perfect, it is easily my favorite image from their wedding.  The enormous smile on Gates’s face says it all.

The second image is the end of their epic first dance! It was so good and entertaining, and I’m happy I was able to capture the grand finale kiss at the end.  Stay tuned for their wedding which will come to the blog sometime this summer!

In May I spent a few days in Spring Green, Wisconsin visiting my good friend Taryn and I finally got to meet her daughter Audrey. This mini-me of Taryn is the fun age of two and half, and she is the ultimate country baby. They all live on a farm, started to raise pigs last year (check out their farm Stoneface Pastures here), and for Mother’s Day this year Taryn got her first (but not her last!) donkey. The time I spent with this family was so good… it was nice to take a few days off, enjoy the country life, and follow Audrey around watching her explore. Here are my favorites. Enjoy!
