The “N” Family | Northern New Jersey Family Photographer

The “N” Family was a fun family to photograph. When I saw them walking towards me from a distance, I immediately fell in love with them. I was so excited to see that they took into consideration my suggestions of what to wear. Here are some of my faves from my evening with the “N” family!

I love that they wanted to incorporate something that Dad and Son share an interest with.

Ramny + Dayami {Wedding} | New York City & Hudson Valley, NY Wedding Photographer

Here are some of the highlights from Ramny and Dayami’s big day! I love this couple. They remind me so much of my husband and I when we got married back in ’06. I’m wishing them many years of happiness and blessings.

One thing that I’ve never seen at a wedding is the bride and groom washing each others feet. It symbolizes the moment when Jesus washed His disciples’ feet, to show them that He wanted to serve them, that He considered them greater than Himself, and washing feet during that day was a sign of being humble and thoughtful. By washing one another’s’ feet, it is showing to each other, and to their loved ones, that they are vowing to serve each other humbly.

Baby V Turns One | Hudson Valley, NY Lifestyle and Childrens Photographer

This session really meant a lot to me. It represented a year of me making the decision to start a business. My first official session was a maternity session of this little boy and now he’s one! I’m so thankful for everyone that has entrusted me this year to capture their memories. Words cannot express the gratitude and honor that I feel. I’ve learned so much about photography this past year and it’s so refreshing to see improvement. Thank you all so much for your support and I pray that this business continues to grow.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from his one year session.

Rob + Kristy {wedding} | NYC and Hudson Valley, NY Wedding Photographer

Back in June, I had the opportunity of photographing Rob and Kristy. They had just finished having a small, intimate ceremony and had called me to do portraits of them and their family as well as some photos of the intimate reception. I absolutely love everything about this location. They chose a beautiful mansion in the Bronx. Here are a few of my favorite photos.

Ramny + Dayami {Engaged} | New York City & Hudson Valley, NY Photographer

I felt so honored to have received an inquiry for an engagement session from two beautiful couples who lived in the City! And before actually meeting face to face together, I knew that I would immediately love these two. I have a questionnaire that I always give to my couples when they choose me so that I can get to know them as well as help me figure out what they expect from me. When we spoke on the phone, they requested a Vintage/Urban theme but at the same time they entrusted my creative juices. I love consultations where the couples trust me creatively! Here are some of my favorite photos!

Nate + Brittany|Orange County, NY & Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer

Brittany was my first wedding of the summer season and boy was it hot! And when I say hot, I mean almost passing out from heat exhaustion hot! Seeing as this was an outside wedding and reception, Miss EricaLee learned a few lessons, such as: keeping myself hydrated. I did not stop to drink at all most of the day but in my defense I didn’t want to miss anything.

Despite the heat, it was a beautiful wedding. Here are some of my favorite photos!
