Engagement: Jen + Will — Belville, NJ

Hello Friends!
Today’s blogpost is from Jen + Will’s engagement session at Branchbrook Park in Belleville, NJ. Jen reached out to us as a recommendation from her Friend Christina, whom we worked with a couple of years ago (Thanks Christina!) For their engagement shoot, Jen and her Fiancee, Will, chose this park which is located right in their hometown. It also happens to be home to amazing Cherry Blossom Trees, that bloom during the month April. We met around 4:30PM on a beautiful thursday afternoon while the sun was still out but not terribly harsh. We took pictures all over the park, stopping by as many different color trees as we could find. Jen is so easy going and a natural behind the camera. Her smile was truly contagious. Will was a little shy at first, but with Jen’s help and their sweet inside jokes, he quickly opened up. Together, these two are just dreamy to work with. They were so comfortable with each other and with us and just knew how to have fun. We had such great time working with them both!

Ps: Jen is an amazing baker who read about my chocolate love affair on our website and baked us the most amazing brownies I have EVER had. EVER. For this alone, she will forever hold a special place in my heart. <3 Thanks Jen!

Mommie + Me: Liam and Shelly


Today’s blogpost featuring Shelly + Liam stole my Heart!!! Mommy + me — How freaking adorable! I can’t speak much on behalf of these two — They were just great! And clearly stylish! As you can see, the session took place in one of our favorite places to shoot at, DUMB. And as customary, we hit all of our usual spots; the carousel, the awesome cobblestone streets, the playground, along with a few new ones like the Pier and a first — a restaurant. Liam got a little hungry and he wanted pizza so we happily oblidged, and of course, made sure we got some pictures in the process.

Thank you Shelly + Liam such a fun sunday! We had a great time with you both.
