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.

Rhode Island Weekend Getaway

It’s no secret that I love everything about New England during every season, but fall is definitely one of my top favorites! I love watching the leaves change, checking out all of the house decorations, and partaking in all of the local fall festivities — like visiting Clyde’s Cider Mill! Clyde’s has been around since the 1800’s, […]

Maybe 🙂 Most of my family and friends are at work today, so we won’t be able to fully celebrate until this weekend, BUT that […]

Peach Picking & Disappearing Sunflower Fields

My friend Kelly and I have been wanting to go and photograph a sunflower field ALL summer long!  After going to The Gathering Event together in Fredericksburg, VA a few weeks back, we decided that we were going to make it happen.

Meet Shamrock the Borgi

Ok, so no, I didn’t exactly get a dog (sadly!), BUT…. THIS adorable little house elf came yesterday afternoon to spend the week with us while her family is away on vacation!  Her name is Shamrock (Shammy, for short!), and I love when she comes to visit.  For the longest time we couldn’t decide what […]
