Michael + Lucy ~ Cape May NJ mini styled shoot

Michael and Lucy had the most gorgeous wedding this past July in California, but generously agreed to dress up again so I could get some shots on the beach that I've always wanted! We went to Cape May, NJ on a crisp but gorgeous night and found a spot that actually looked much more like the Pacific coast (YAY!) than the Jersey shore!

I am so grateful for all the people that made my vision come alive for this shoot: Martha DiCamillo - bridal bouquet & boutonnière, Alexis DiCamillo - makeup & flower crown, Bianca DiCamillo - flower errands & prep, Annie Baranik - 2nd shooter & on-site comedian ;). 

Nick + Brenna ~ Duportail House Wedding Photographer

When I got together with Nick & Brenna a few months before their wedding, they told me that they were getting married outside and that there wasn't really a backup plan if the weather didn't cooperate. So, I crossed my fingers and watched the weather forecast eagerly for 2 weeks leading up to their wedding...and we literally couldn't have gotten a more perfectly sunny-and-60's fall day! Whew!!!

Some of my favorite memories from this day were:

1) Nick constantly rubbing Brenna's arms because he was so worried she was cold (so sweet),

2) the CHEESE cake (not "cheesecake...but cheese cake...you'll see the picture! ;), and

3) the DANCING!!! (the DJ killed it, seriously...it was all I could do not to party with everyone!).

Thanks, Nick & Brenna for inviting me to be a part of this amazing day!
