I am a South Jersey and Philadelphia area and engagement photographer. I also absolutely love shooting Jersey Shore engagement sessions. Within this gallery you will see a variety of locations and themes. Whether you want a Philadelphia engagement session in Old City with cobblestone streets, or a relaxed beach engagement session down the Jersey shore in Cape May, Wildwood or Ocean City I am ready! There are also some wonderful wooded locations that provide a rustic feel. I live close to the Pinelands and know many spots in Hammonton, Cherry Hill, Medford and Shamong. Batsto Village in Hammonton offers a large variety of backdrops with a lake, rustic stone and wood buildings, the mansion, wooded trails and large open grassy areas. It's beautiful at sunset when the sun dips behind the trees.
While I am based in South Jersey, I travel throughout the Central and North Jersey areas as well as Philadelphia and surrounding towns. Sayen Gardens in Hamilton is a beautiful place to explore as is Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ. I absolutely love shooting at the Jersey Shore as well as in Old City, Philadelphia. The majority of my wedding packages include an engagement session. I do this for a number of reasons. Obviously, it's wonderful to have some updated photos of the two of you, but it's a great opportunity to get to know you. I've found that it's great for my couples to have some time in front of the camera before the wedding day. I want you to feel comfortable and excited to have your photos taken!
If your wedding is a summer wedding, consider doing your engagement photos in a different season like the fall. It's always nice to have a different look and feel to the photos. Engagement sessions are a great way to express more of your personality in a less formal way. I offer custom design services for save the date cards as well as guest sign-in books, matted prints for guests to sign and enlargements that you can display at your wedding reception.
