Megan is one of those people that has a warm presence about her that makes you feel like you’ve known her for years. We actually did meet a couple of years ago and I remember her saying that she was dating the guy she was going to marry but it just felt like “marriage” was SO far away. I don’t remember exactly what I told her but I believe that I said something like …. “It’s going to be here before you know it!!!” and here we are!! Megan and Justin got engaged during a trip to Europe and it was straight out of a fairytale with a castle in the background! ah! What a dream!
Fast forward several months and it’s time for their engagement session! I know all about the proposal and I also know that Megan is a talented photographer and so the pressure is on! This shoot needed to be amazing not only because this couple deserves the best but because if you get engaged in front of a CASTLE, you better have awesome engagement photos too! I’m not sure if these are castle-quality but they are gorgeous and full of so much love and beauty and that was the ultimate goal! I wanted to capture these two the way that they are day in and day out and so it was perfect that we shot in Cape May because it’s a big part of their story!
Megan emailed me and explained that she wanted her engagement session to be just like a normal date for the two of them. I loved this idea and so we did everything that they would normally do! Ice cream, bike rides, strolling down the sidewalk near the beach, etc. It was perfect in every way!!! We ended the night and grabbed something to eat and chatted about all that they have to look forward to this year. Michael and I couldn’t be more excited for them AND I can’t wait for this wedding!!!! Ah!!!
Enjoy this brand new Cape May, NJ Engagement session!!
These victorian houses! AH! What a dream!
Megan you are STUNNING, girl!
Loved this! They are SUCH pros! I knew they would be :)
An ice cream stop before heading to the beach!
I’ve always wanted to shoot in front of a quaint boutique!!
This wall was made for me!
Another favorite… obviously!
Guys…. if you only knew what we went through to get these final rock shots! Lets just say this…. I’m SO glad Mark III’s have high ISO capabilities AND that Justin and Megan were up for an adventure! :)

Did you love this engagement Session?!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
