I really enjoyed taking Maritza & Wil’s engagement photos. With the purpose of creating their wedding save the dates, Maritza & Wil chose Sea Bright Beach as the location for their engagement session on this beautiful day in September. Everything about the day worked in our favor, be it the comfortable temperature, the few clouds that helped to block the sun and prevent a lot of squinting in the photos and especially the beach not being so packed with people.
In 2014, Wil proposed to Maritza on the beach while on vacation with their entire family. Maritza said everyone knew about Wil’s plan except her and she was beyond excited when he dropped down to his knee right outside of their beach house.
Maritza & Wil first met as 18yr olds working at K-Mart. Their lives took separate paths at the time but they remained friends throughout the years, losing contact here and there. After almost 18 years, they reconnected and began dating.
As their wedding day approaches, they are most excited to celebrate their love with all of their family & friends, those who will be there with them and those in spirit. I can’t wait to photograph Wil & Maritza’s NJ wedding.

From the very first meeting, I knew Brandie & Joe were going to be a great couple to work with. Our engagement shoot at Allaire State Park only set the tone for the great wedding day photos at the Grand Marquis in Old Bridge, NJ. For his ceremony entrance with his groomsmen, Joe wanted to come out with a little “edge”, so he had them don bandanas, shades and black hats as they walked out to Brantley Gilbert’s “Kick it to the Sticks”. Brandie & her ladies kept it a little more traditional. During our cocktail shoot, we had a little fun on rt 9 creating our version of the Beatles famed Abbie Rd walking shot. Everything about Brandie & Joe’s wedding day was perfect, from the weather to the ceremony and the music and then of course, their family & friends.
