Katie and Steven are getting married! | Allaire State Park Engagement Session | The Breakers on The Ocean Wedding | Spring Lake Photographer

Living in Monmouth County has certainly got it's perks - one of them being that I've had the chance to meet fabulous couples like Katie and Steven, who are getting married this October at the Breakers on the Ocean in Spring Lake, NJ. I met this lovely couple while pretty largely pregnant, and we have grown to be fast friends! We went to shoot at Allaire State Park for their engagement session on what was supposed to be a warm, sunny day that turned out to be chilly and cloudy! That said, we made some sunlight of our own, and had an awesome time doing it!

I love weddings, because it is such a special day for me to get to witness, but few make me more emotional than this one has.  Peggy reached out to me regarding this couple's union last July, telling me that it was her second wedding after her first husband had passed from cancer a few years prior. Whew. If you know me, you know how that struck a chord. As her priest - who by the way, was one of the coolest "dudes" I've ever seen give a sermon - spoke about how Peggy opened her self up to love again, there was not a dry eye in the house. Peggy brought two beautiful children to her marriage with Vin, and it was amazing to see how much he loved them as well. Love has truly smiled on this family, and I could not have been more honored to capture it.
