This long, cold winter is almost over, and that means Spring (and wedding season) are just around the corner. We are so excited for this year, with a few new venues, as well as some old faves, three destination weddings, and nothing but fun couples as far as the eye can see! This post includes all of the wedding venues and engagement photo locations with links so that you can check them out if you are planning your wedding. Of course, we also wanted to do this just because we are so excited to be working with everyone again! Are you getting married or did you get married at one of these venues?
CATHERINE AND MARK IN BALTIMORE | We are pretty pumped to be shooting in a new city! These guys will be the first of three destination weddings this year. They had their engagement session in her hometown at the Van Vleck House and Gardens. You can see more from their engagement session here.
PARSIPPANY HILTON | This might be one of the biggest weddings we will have photographed to date, with two ceremonies to celebrate both cultures. Pretty exciting as I am one for traditions! They are currently living in Washington, DC and decided to have their engagement photos done at the National Mall to include all the monuments. It was a first for both of us and we really enjoyed the tour, the company, and the awesome mugs they gifted us!
LIZ AND ROB AT WINDOWS ON THE WATER IN SEA BRIGHT | We haven't been to Windows on the Water in Sea Bright in over a year, and it is one of our favorite venues. Of course we are super excited to be back (and with this super fun couple, no less)! They had their engagement photos done in Asbury Park. You can see more from their Asbury Park boardwalk session here.
BRITTANY AND KYLE AT THE OLDE MILL INN | The Olde Mill is one of our most popular venues. And let me tell you, they throw some of the best receptions! Brittany and Kyle had their engagement photos done on the beach at the good ol' Jersey Shore. You can see more of their romantic beach session here.
JENNA AND DAN AT THE PALACE AT SOMERSET | This will be our first time photographing at The Palace and we are always excited to photograph at new venues. They wanted to incorporate the beautiful city of Philadelphia before they moved and it couldn't have been a better setting! You can see more from this Philly engagement session here.
ALYSSA AND EVAN AT SOUTHGATE MANOR | Evan happens to be a childhood friend of mine so I was so honored when they chose us for their big day! Southgate is a great choice for what I think will be a very classy and fun wedding. They wanted a city/urban vibe and went with the fun town of Asbury Park for their engagement photos and were totally cool braving the cold. You can see more of this winter engagement here.
DEANNA AND TRAVIS AT PERONA FARMS | We have always wanted to photograph at Perona Farms, and now's our chance. It's so pretty there! She has a sunflower obsession and he loves antique cars. Luckily we managed to find Johnson's Locust Farm with tons of sunflowers AND a truck to rent that totally fit the theme. It came together perfectly! You can see more of this rustic engagement session here.
KARI AND TOM AT EAGLES OAKS GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB | Eagle Oakes is another popular one for us, and it is certainly a fantastic venue! The grounds are wonderful, and the staff is so accommodating. They wanted to do their engagement photos in and around Hoboken. We got to incorporate their favorite restaurant where Tom proposed, Grand Vin and their adorable pup (who has his own Instagram which you can follow @apugnamedlarry). Lucky for us they've got the connect at Grand Vin and they opened up on a Monday afternoon just for these two! You can see more of this fun engagement session here.
JESSICA AND JOE AT OLDE MILL INN | I predict a super fun party at this wedding. :) These guys met and worked together at Rutgers, so naturally we headed to New Brunswick for their engagement session. We even got some fun photos in the office where it all began, so cute! You can see more photos from their session here.
TAYLOR AND SCOTT AT LAURITA WINERY | Lauritaaaa, it's been too long and we are SO excited to be back! We couldn't have had better luck with the couple that we get to photograph there too...Oh yes, they most definitely brought their bunny to their engagement session at Allaire! You can see more photos here.
DANIELLE AND SEAN AT COVERED BRIDGE BARN IN GERMANTOWN, NY | Our third destination of the year, and this venue looks crazy cool! We have worked with both of their families when they've visited the Jersey Shore for summer vacation (in LBI and Cape May). While this isn't their official engagement session, it will be taking place on the beach this summer!
A few of our #JNJcouples have yet to have their engagement session, but I still want to shout them out! And we'll hopefully update this post as they happen. :)
Marita and John at The Historic Smithville Inn | Nicole and Mike at Sandals in Antigua | Rebecca and Philip at Mallard Island Yacht Club | Desiree and Chris at The Reeds | Molly and John at Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel | Stefanie and Greg at Windows on the Water at Frogbridge | Carolyn and Sal in Cape May | Lauren and Bill at Olde Mill Inn | Lisa and Michael at Short Hills Hilton | Katie and Jordan at Ryland Inn
