Nichole and Dino | North Wild wood Engagement Session | South New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Wild Wood, NJ
“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.”
- F. Scott Fitzgearld
Nichole and Dino Engaged!!
I have known Nichole for many years. She is a friend of a friend and is one of the sweetest people I know. I worked with her and her committee at St Jude's Catholic School for a couple of years photographing for the school fund raisers. I have taken her family photos, her daughter's first communion photos, and her daughter's high school senior portraits. I always enjoy seeing her and her family!
A few years ago she had a door close in her life and a beautiful new door open. Nichole had asked me to photograph her and her love, Dino, They were just announcing this love story and I was delighted to capture this moment for them!
At the time I took their photos I told them to keep me in mind if you ever need a photographer in the future!! Well, last year Nichole texted me a photo of a beautiful ring and asked if I would be available to photograph their wedding. I said, "of course I would love to photograph this chapter in your life!"
We decided that Wild wood, NJ would be a perfect spot for their engagement session. They love spending time at the Jersey shore and I couldn't wait to show them the Hereford lighthouse. They loved the idea and were excited to do their session.
These two are so in love. The quote at the top of this blog is "their quote". I asked them to tell me about their love story and they said that quote embodies everything about their story. He is her sailor and she is his mermaid.
We started in the lighthouse gardens. The Hereford Lighthouse in Wild wood, NJ has a beautiful garden area. The light was just beautiful that evening!
It is a short walk down the seawall to the beach from the lighthouse. We headed down to the beach to capture some photos in the sand and water. We timed it perfectly as the sun was setting and that gave us gorgeous light. I love the colors they chose to wear. The pinks looked great with the sand, dunes and the ocean.
These two walked the beach and danced in the sand!
Nichole and Dino are tying the knot in a couple weeks, They have planned so many details to make their day extra special. I asked them to tell me about their wedding plans and I am so excited to capture this day for them. They are planning a speakeasy soriee! Their venue is at the Stegmaier Mansion in Wilkes Barre, Pa. I have photographed many weddings there and just love it. The venue is perfect for their theme! The night will consist of a lavish dinner, cocktails, bourbon tasting & dancing drenched in live jazz.
And of course, lots of love!
I am looking forward to capturing their wedding day memories!!
