A South Jersey Wedding

Kaitlyn & Ed

South Jersey Wedding Photographer

By the time Kaitlyn and Ed’s wedding day came, I felt really excited for them as if one of my friends were getting married. I originally met Kaitlyn at a South Jersey Starbucks and I honestly felt like I knew her already. Then, I did a newborn photo session and a little family session for them prior to the big day. I found myself so emotional during their  big day day. I think because I relate so much with my own little blended family becoming “one” next year. They have two cutest little girls and their families are so close. It was a great day!

Being from Brigantine myself, I loved doing the girls’ “getting ready” photos there!

Kaitlyn's Wedding Day

I love big bridal parties. This bride and groom have a big family and lots of friends! It was a fun day to be surrounded by so many people.

Kaitlyn wanted lots of adorable pictures with her little girls! And.. Daddy got his big girl a special gift. It was so sweet.

This bride and groom opted for a “First Look” before the ceremony and I love that. Not only does it give them time to themselves before the busy-ness, but it allows so much more time for portraits!

They were truly so happy to see each other…

Do you think they like each other a little bit? Ugh…their smiles when they look at each other was everything I need on my wedding day. I loved the colors, the lights and flowers. It was such a romantic, sparkly wedding.

The reception started off with a first dance that included their two girls. It was so sweet. Then, there was the parent dances. There were a few happy tears.. from them and maybe me.
