Emily and Sean
Emily and Sean were high school sweethearts! Emily is best friends with Sean’s triplet sister. They all grew up together and have attended the same school since elementary school. Emily & Sean were together 6 years when he surprised her with the proposal. It was a beautiful sunny day in May, and they went for a walk on the Island Heights boardwalk. Unbeknownst to Emily their families were hiding in the distance as Sean proposed. Shortly after the proposal, he covered her eyes and surprised her with their new puppy, Luna, who was also their flower girl on the big day!

Katy and Chris
Katy & Chris met through mutual friends when they were living in San Diego. They both love the beach, the sun and to surf! They were together a few years when Chris proposed on the beach. It was sunrise and they were going surfing so they were doing a wave check. Chris popped the question and Katy was so surprised! They wanted to have a laid back, non traditional wedding and The Seafarer did not disappoint. When I met Katy, she was very stressed over not being able to find a photographer to capture the day the way she wanted it to be captured. She said everyone had their own agenda and didn’t’ really care that she didn’t want any of the traditional portraits. We connected through our love for California and I was happy to photograph anything and everything she wanted. We had a wonderful time at their wedding and I am so happy she reached out to us!

Madeline and Harshal
Madeline & Harshal met in college and became really good friends before they started dating. They were together 7 years when Harshal proposed. Madeline said she was totally surprised and so excited to have her family around her for the proposal. They are both very close to their families and to each other’s families and we had spoken about it many times during consultations and conversations leading up to the wedding. When we finally met them in person it was clear to see their love for each other and their families. Their wedding event was three days long. The first two days were dedicated to Harshal’s family traditions and ceremonies. The third day we spent sharing Madeline’s family traditions. It was so beautiful to see how each family loved the other and was so proud to take part in the culture and traditions. The mutual love and respect was an honor to document and we enjoyed every second of our time with them and their loved ones.

Lauren and Victor
Lauren & Victor met at work. They are both managers at Wegman’s. Shortly after they met they had their first date at Stage House in Somerset, NJ. They went out for drinks and appetizers and have been together ever since. Victor decided to propose while they were on vacation in Positano, Italy with Lauren’s family. Lauren was so surprised and embarrassed because the entire tour bus witnessed the proposal. They are a sweet couple with a beautiful daughter, Victoria. We absolutely loved everything about their wedding and reception at Natirar.
Jameson and Brian
This wedding is extra special to me because I have known Jameson for years! We met in Napa. I was on a girls mini getaway trip and Jameson was our tour guide and Sommelier at Beringer Vineyards. We instantly became friends and he spent the rest of our trip showing us around Napa & Sonoma and taking us on tours of all the Vineyards. We kept in touch over the years and I was beyond thrilled to hear of his engagement. It was such an honor when he and Brian asked me to be part of their special day as a guest and they also wanted me to take photos throughout the day.
The wedding was at a gorgeous marina in Newport, RI. Friends and family traveled from all over the world to celebrate with them. It was so wonderful to meet so many people that they have met throughout the years. The following day they rented a sailboat to take us all on a tour of Newport. It was such a beautiful weekend!

Brianna and Matthew
Brianna and Matthew dated on and off for 10 years when Matthew decided to pop the question in one of the most unique ways we have ever heard of! Matthew staged the Chief of Police to pull them over one day. She asked them to step out of the vehicle. Once they were out of the vehicle she asked Matthew if there was anything on his possession that she should be aware of and he dropped down on one knee and asked Brianna to marry him. When I asked Brianna what the most important thing they wanted us to capture on their wedding day was, her response was “the laughs, the love, the dancing and the party”. Their day was filled with exactly that! We had a great time with Brianna, Matthew and their entire family. Everything was perfect and beautiful.
