Prepping my gear for the first of 4 (!!!) weddings this weekend! I have my batteries charged, lenses cleaned, dresses pressed, and bottles of water lined up and ready to go. Let’s do this! 👰🏼💍📷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photographers, what’s your go to snack on a wedding day? I always reach for pretzel m&ms and goldfish!
Most unique proposal story of the year award? Yup, that definitely would go to Ron! Ron proposed last year while he and Jess were SNORKELING on vacation! How awesome is that?! Ron kept Jess’ engagement ring on his finger the whole time to ensure that it didn’t float away. Luckily, the ring stayed put, and of course, Jess said yes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Their Jersey City engagement session is live on the blog. Link in bio!
Always seeking simplicity ✨ Spending tonight prepping the blog for a brand new engagement session that’s going to be going LIVE first thing tomorrow morning! I can’t wait to share it with you!
One of my sweet brides emailed me a couple of weeks ago asking what I thought about first looks. Short and sweet answer? I LOVE them. I could go on about the benefits, but I’ll just share two here and save the rest for a future blog post :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anticipation, nervousness, and excitement are running HIGH before the start of the ceremony. First looks help to ease some of those jitters! It’s just the two of you, seeing each other as bride and groom for the first time, without the pressure of having all of your family members and friends in the room! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To piggyback off of that, I think first looks are so special in that it’s really the only time during your wedding day that you get to spend with just each other (and me, but from a distance 😉). Even if it only lasts for a short while! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Third benefit (I lied, haha)! After the first look is over, you’ll be able to spend more of your wedding day together, instead of waiting until after the ceremony is over! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brides! Are you thinking about doing a first look, or are you going to go the traditional route?! I’d love to know! Let me know in the comments below 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
Can we talk about last nights engagement session?! When Krysti and Taylor told me that they wanted to have their session on their boat, I couldn’t have been more excited! I’m always up for a fun adventure, and I LOVE when my couples are too 🛥 Can’t wait to share more!!!
