Hey ya’ll! Things at LFP have been super busy! Head on over to my fb page to see the awesome-ness I have been up to!
I have been getting lots of emails about what to wear… so I headed over to my beloved pinterest and found LOTS of ideas! Also, click the “what to wear” tag at the bottom of my blog to see posts I have written about it and other examples!
Thank you for reading about today’s blog about South Jersey engagement photos!
As soon as I started shooting, I told Dawn and Russ I wanted to blog about their session. Amazing and personalized photos take a bit of planning. Dawn made sure she incorporated all the things they love and that had meaning. The result is awesome! It’s beautiful because everywhere you turn there is meaning, and because they are super smitten with each other, and it’s really cute!
Lilacs-one of my mothers and her mother’s favorite. We had these growing in my backyard since i have been a little girl… my grandma had TONS of HUGE bushes in her yard.

Laura and Ed were referred to me by our mutual friend Stephanie. (Hi Steph!) Laura called a few months ago and we ended up talking on the phone for a loooong time. It started with photography, then went to DJ, make up, and a whole list of other things not related to photography. We hit it off right away!
Fast forward two months till this weekend. I was lucky enough to get to meet Laura and Ed in person with their SUPER handsome baby boy. I loved watching Ed interact with him. I know all dads love their children, but Ed gets an A+ in the dad department. You can see how proud he is of his little man from a million miles away. In person Laura was even more sweet, kind and gentle then she was in all our conversations, emails, and text. Yea- we text a lot too! (I can’t help it. I think she rocks) Her Disney princess eyes kill me in the best way possible. Gorgeous.
They are getting married in Toms River at the end of this summer and I am lucky enough to be their wedding photographer! But let’s be honest – they are the lucky ones. Sometimes couples get married because it’s the thing to do, and sometimes couples marry because they are perfect for one another. Laura and Ed are perfect for each other. They interact with such ease, they look and listen with intent when the other is talking, and they were flirty with each other the entire time. THAT’S when you know you still “got it goin’ on”.
