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.
What a whirlwind of a weekend for weddings! I travelled from Sparta all the way down to Asbury Park and photographed four (yes, four!) weddings for some sweet couples along the way. It’s always so interesting to see the different venues, color schemes, themes, and unique traditions that each couple incorporates into their wedding day. There’s so much variety from wedding to wedding – one day I’m at the beach, and the next day I’m on top of a mountain!
That being said, I’m so excited to share Krysti & Taylor’s engagement session that we had on their BOAT a couple of weeks ago! I’ve never had a session on a boat before, and I sure hope that I get to do it again sometime soon. I love when my couples plan an adventure for their engagement session, and Krysti & Taylor did exactly that!
Krysti & Taylor are high school sweethearts and have two of the most adorable little boys. During our initial phone chat, Krysti & I discovered that she, Taylor, and Ryan all went to high school together (two hours south of where I live in Morristown!). They went to a large high school and didn’t know each other, but still, what a small world!
While we were deciding on the perfect location for their engagement session, Krysti suggested her parent’s backyard. She sent me photos of the beautiful lot that backed up to a creek and was complete with boats and a dock. I thought it was a PERFECT location! Krysti shared with me that her parent’s backyard was her happy place, and it wasn’t hard to see why.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I arrived and realized that we were going to take the boats out for a spin! Krysti’s sweet family and friends joined us during their engagement session and took the three of us out on two different boats – which allowed us to photograph from ALL of the angles! 🙂
Congratulations on your engagement, Krysti & Taylor! I can’t wait for your wedding in August!
