Asbury Park Engagement Photos

Jessica and Edd and their beautiful, wild chemistry is such a highlight of my summer engagement season. They are both so interesting, so into each other, so good together and genuinely enjoy each other’s company no matter what they do. Asbury Park is one of their favorite places to hang out ( and every photographer’s dream) and that’s where they wanted to have their engagement photo session. It has so much to offer: from original graffiti art to small cozy streets, from stylish distillery to quiet, sun-drenched bridges…

We walked around Asbury Park boardwalk, visited Asbury distillery for a drink, then got some oysters and walked a little more ;) Here are some of our favorites.


Slay Displays/ Location 215

This past Thursday was an unforgettable day when we all got to celebrate relaunch and rebrand of Slay Displays. Networking, meeting new people and making amazing connections - what can be better? Funny how I’ve been asking everyone how they met Julia.. and was happy to share my story: we first met at a styled shoot at Anthony Wayne House, a project I got interested in because I saw her name and wanted to meet another russian- speaking vendor in the industry! I got to meet her and her husband and got amazed by how much effort and hard work they put into their craft. All of their flowers, giant letters and backdrops are made by hand… it’s clear they pour all their energy and soul into what they do and always come up with creative ways to wow! Their letters are definitely show stoppers that would be an awesome addition to a surprise proposal, wedding, family celebrations and any other event.

It was awesome to meet new amazing friendors I ‘ve heard of before : Frost 321 are so unique and so cool! While we were filming them, I was literally mesmerized by the way their cocktails are made. Watching them do their magic made me think of summer rooftop parties and how great it would be to have them there. It’s literally entertainment + frozen tasty cocktails ( 2 in 1).

Icona Avalon Wedding Photos | Dana + Mike

This right here is everything you need to know about Dana and Mike and people they surrounded themselves with. Everything, from that fire in both Dana and Mike’s eyes, their smiles, their pure and lovely excitement about their wedding ( I couldn’t stop comparing them to little kids :)) These ridiculously beautiful and kind people with so much light and energy created the most amazing memories… They lit up the whole room, they danced the night away, the smiled, cried, hugged, kissed. I’m so happy we got to experience that night together. I’m so grateful for you, for your love, for the way you look at each other, for the way you love life and each other, and cherish moments above everything else. I’ll always remember you as “ crazy in love kids”... the happiest clients, the ocean- loving, fun, chill, excited, beautiful couple.

Here’s to forever.

venue: ICONA Avalon
dj: Hurricane Productions
florist: Jennifer Designs
make up: The Contour Queen
cake: Bakeworks

This spring wedding was photographed by Inna Ovsepian Photography at the incredibly beautiful Icona Avalon. The couple got married at hotel’s veranda decorated with florals and lanterns by their amazing florists ( later we found out that they had to fight water because of the storm we got but no one could ever guess, that’s some great hard work behind the scenes!) Dana wanted to incorporate stairs for the first look ( just like in Titanic) and it was the sweetest and emotional moment for all of us.. Portraits were taken around the venue and at the taproom at the Hotel. See their engagement session here.

Adventure Aquarium Surprise Proposal | Camden Waterfront & Race St Pier Engagement

Prem surprised Sarah with a shiny heart shaped ring and VIP tour around Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ. The coolest part of this afternoon: divers with the sweetest sign “Will you marry me?”…. and Sarah’s reaction of course! :)

Congratulations on your engagement!

Thank you to Aquarium’s staff for being super caring and helpful.


Adelphia Wedding | Ravi +Liz

Ravi and Liz tied the knot on the first day of December at beautiful Adelphia in Deptford, New Jersey. They exchanged gifts beforehand and opted out of first look which means Ravi saw his beautiful bride for the first time when she was graciously walking down the aisle. His reaction is one of the sweetest we’ve seen. Happy tears, prayers, Indian ceremony ( can’t stop looking at their breathtaking traditional outfits!), DJ BRIDE, Eagles cake as a groom’s cake, sparkling sneakers instead of high heels, bomb bridal party and dances non- stop - just some of our favorite highlights of the party.

Enjoy the memories!

Everly at Railroad + Ocean City Engagement | Dana + Mike

While Philly was dealing with snowy surprise I escaped to Tuckahoe and Ocean City to spend an amazing afternoon with Dana and Mike for their engagement session. We started the day at whimsical Everly at Railroad and later made our way to Ocean City. The weather could not be any better. My favorite parts of the day : guys taking Polaroid photos of each other ( how sweet!), wine on the beach, emotions, happy smiles and the fact that Mike was ready to sacrifice the Eagles game for this session ;)

Enjoy these memories :) Can’t wait to capture more soul photos on your wedding day!

Thank you for this beautiful day.



Greate Bay Country Club Wedding | Somers Point, NJ | Joe + Renny

You ever meet your bride and groom for the first time and they strike you with their calm energy, courtesy, manners and beauty? That's what I immediately thought of Joe and Renny when we exchanged hugs at Greate Bay Country Club.

Oh and their families are so wonderful! Great speeches! Amazing moments shared together. Asians surely do know how to party and I love it ;) We got so many awesome photos from their reception, especially from the dance floor.

I'm very grateful to this wonderful couple for letting us experiment and being up to anything. That's how magic is created! Mutual efforts of great talented photographers and adventurous clients. Also, Joe wanted to get on the website so here you go guys!!! :)

Enjoy the memories, I am so glad I got to celebrate the day with you.

Alex + Kit | Wedding at Mendenhall Inn

Alex and Kit tied the knot at the beautiful St Mary Magdalen Parish in Media and danced the night away at Mendenhall Inn. Their bright personalities, 19+ bridal party ( I still can't believe how helpful, fun, energetic and sweet everyone was and how much they contributed to this special day, making it truly one of a kind for the bride, groom and everyone else including me!), surprises during reception and the loveliest speeches are just a tiny part of how awesome the day went and how much joy it brought. Here is a little glimpse of the day.

Elegant wedding at Smithville Mansion | Hilary + Philip

How sweet it is to be loved by you...

Every once in a while we get these extra crazy hot days here in NJ when humidity is so strong you almost can't breathe or stay outdoors. Well, this time out breath was taken away by something stronger. Extraordinary celebration of life and love with one incredible couple. We couldn't be any more grateful and humbled by a chance to be there with Hilary, Philip and their fun families while there were tying the knot this Saturday at one of the most scenic wedding venues in New Jersey- historic Smithville Mansion. Awesome vintage car, ceremony with British accent, crazy dances, unbearable heat and those tender moments in between. Here are few of our favorites!
