The Voorhees Chapel at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ was the backdrop for the ceremony of Julia and Tom one week before Christmas. Not only did they exchange vows there, but this iconic chapel was the same place Julia’s parents married decades earlier. Julia and Tom are one of the sweetest couples I had the pleasure of working with in 2015. Best friends in high school, they eventually fell in love and now their chemistry and love for each other is so tangible you can almost taste it. And I’m not just saying that. Couples like Julia and Tom are what keep me going.:)

Their warm-and-fuzzy-it’s-almost-Christmas reception was held at another NJ University! This one being the Atrium at STEM, which is part of Kean University in Union. Toasts, dancing, cheesecake pops, and even more dancing rounded out their wedding day, and now they live happily ever after. Best of luck to Julia and Tom!

The Bouman-Stickney Farmstead in Hunterdon County, NJ was the scene for the sweet and intimate wedding of Leigh & Joe, who married this past September on a beautiful fall afternoon. This particular location was especially meaningful, as Leigh used to volunteer there and her father Peter helped build the barn where these two recited their vows and then had their first dance. I loved this venue and the feel of it…future brides, check this place out!:) I met up with Leigh and Joe moments before their first look, and the following photos are just some of the highlights from their day. Enjoy!

I’ve been photographing twins Max and Luke since they were born, and every year I look forward to my time with them. They are adorable, outgoing, inquisitive, curious, affectionate, best friends, and overall pretty awesome. At four and a half! Their session was held at Bouman Stickney Farmstead, where I recently photographed a wedding and couldn’t wait to get back there to shoot some more. We lucked out and had one of those balmy fall days… the boys explored this new place, and I stalked them with my camera. Overall a great way to spend a glorious November afternoon. Here are my favorites. Enjoy!

The bitchin’ Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA  was the scene for the main event of Aarthi & Samit’s wedding weekend this past October. 400+ attended this amazing wedding, which included Samit’s ridiculously fun baraat right outside the hotel at 13th & Market. How awesome it must be to close a street or two in center city Philly to dance with some of your favorite people! The traditional Hindu ceremony was followed by one of the most high energy dance parties I have ever photographed…it was one of those weddings where it was impossible to not have fun. I really enjoyed witnessing this tight knit community support our bride and groom by celebrating with them all day. (And I need to include a shout out to the delicious buffet of glorious Indian food.):) Enjoy this preview!
