I'm a 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!

The first time I had ever been to NJ Botanical Gardens and Skylands Manor was for my engagement session with Kathy and Alex a couple of weeks ago! I had been wanting to photograph a session here for a while now, and I was SO excited when they suggested it. I’m always one hundred and ten percent on board whenever a historic mansion (and, of course, a fabulous couple!) is involved!

We had the most beautiful, golden light filled, fall evening with colorful leaves STILL on the trees. I loved exploring all of the special areas that NJ Botanical Gardens has to offer. Every time I turned around, there was a beautiful location where I wanted to photograph Kathy and Alex!

What I loved most about our session was seeing how sweet Kathy and Alex are together, and how much they make each other LAUGH! On a side note, can we talk about their outfit choices? They’re so perfect – especially for a fall session!

Kathy and Alex, I adore you both, and I had so much fun getting to know you more last weekend! Congratulations on your engagement! I cannot WAIT for your wedding at The Terrace next fall!!! Enjoy some of my favorites below!

    Hi Tori! My name is Nancy, I’m Alex’s mom. The pictures look amazing! Obviously the subjects are beautiful 😊❤ but you captured the cutest smiles, looks and poses, and the manor grounds’ most beautiful spots. I’m glad they picked you as their photographer- can’t wait for the wedding pics!!
