Engagements

I'm Tori, a twenty something wedding and portrait photographer based in New Jersey. When I'm not photographing the sweetest couples around, you can find me watching the latest episode of Fixer Upper, listening to country music, or going exploring with my love, Ryan. We're always up for a new adventure.

Loantaka Park | NJ Engagement Photographer | Felicia and Bryan

When I first read Felicia’s inquiry, it made me giggle! I have a question on my website that asks, “how did you hear about me?” and Felicia’s response was “your mom!”. Being the social butterfly that my mom is, I wasn’t the slightest bit surprised. She had met Felicia in a local store, fell in […]

Laurita Winery | NJ Engagement Session | Caitlin & Jonathan

Fort Mott State Park | Pennsville NJ | Erica + Sean

A little rain couldn’t stop us from having a fun afternoon at Fort Mott! Erica is Ryan’s younger sister, and the four of us (five if you count May!) met up a few weeks ago to take photos of them to give to their family members as Christmas presents. Such a sweet idea! Erica & […]

NJ Engagement Session | Andrew + Colleen

Andrew & Colleen’s engagement session was unlike ANY session that I’ve ever photographed before…. and I was loving every moment of it! The three of us met in their new neighborhood on Sunday afternoon in front of their future home, which was originally a hat factory. I mean, really, does it get any cooler than that?! […]

Lambert’s Castle Engagement | Garrett Mountain Reservation | Katie + Steve

Last weekend, I met Katie + Steve at Lambert’s Castle to photograph their engagement session! Talk about a dream worthy location — an incredible stone castle that sits way up high on a mountain top and overlooks the beautiful New York City skyline.  It was so great getting to know and photograph this fun loving, sweet, and […]

What to Wear to an Engagement Session

One of the most common questions I’ve been asked after setting a date for an engagement session is “Tori. What do I wear?!  Help!” Picking out an outfit for an engagement session can seem like a daunting task.  The fear starts to set in when the date gets closer. Should I stick with muted colors […]

I absolutely LOVED photographing Jackie & Ken!  They got engaged a little before Christmas and I’m so happy that […]
