It’s May, right? When did that happen, exactly? It felt like we might never get to this point and yet here we are – almost halfway through the year, COVID-19 still going strong. But that’s not what I’m here to talk about. Some friends of mine got engaged last night (!!!) and despite how up […]

Asbury Park Proposal | Joell & Lenin

How long have we been self-isolating & social distancing? Five weeks? Two days? Help me to recollect. (hopefully you chuckled at that if you’ve seen The Lighthouse – a GREAT watch for this time, btw). Anyway, the reason you’re here: I figured I’d make a fun, non-wedding-photography blog for you all, since I’m sure we […]

They also indulged in my corny jokes & we talked about our favorite spots for wine/cocktails, our fav movies we’ve seen recently, and Ru Paul’s Drag Race.

Why You Should Print Your Wedding Photos

T H E  F U L L  P O S T

It’s important to know your wedding day vendors, and even more important for them to be transparent with you while you’re getting to know them. I will say though – there are helpful questions you can ask, and then there are questions that have nothing to do with the photographer’s skillset, experience, personality, etc. Knowing what to […]

Maybe it’s because a new decade is about to begin, or maybe it’s the fact that it’s almost Thanksgiving, maybe both, maybe none – but I’m feeling reflective.
