Historic Smithville Inn Wedding | NJ Wedding Photographer

After a decade together, Arielle + Justin are married!! I could not wait for their wedding, and I still can’t believe it came and went. I even said in their engagement blog post that I was bursting with excitement for their day. It did not disappoint, let me tell you. Their Historic Smithville Inn wedding in Galloway, NJ was nothing short of a beautiful, emotion packed day for the cutest couple.

These high school sweethearts envisioned a beautiful fall wedding day at their favorite spot in NJ surrounded by the people who mean the most to them. Historic Smithville is a cute little spot nestled into the Pine Barrens, full of different shoppes and goodies. The Historic Smithville Inn is SUCH a charming spot to have a wedding, and I really think it fit their vibe perfectly.

As you scroll through these images, you’ll see just how emotional everyone was throughout the day. It’s so endearing seeing parents tear up over their children getting married. Arielle’s father is such a sweetheart. I don’t think he had a dry eye all day, especially during his first look with his daughter. These moments are my favorite thing to capture during a wedding day. They make me so giddy to see all the true feelings your family is having throughout the day.

I also just want to point out the straight style Arielle and Justin brought to their day. They left no stone unturned and I looove it! Peep that fresh haircut Justin got in their suite!! I’m still blown away by their incredible style and how it all came together so beautifully.

But what really matters and stood out to me the most is their huge, kind hearts. I’ll never forget walking into the bridal suite and getting the biggest hug from Arielle. Every step of the way felt like I was becoming a member of their family for the day. There’s so much energy from all of their bridal party and guests that I still feel like I’m there when I look at these images. Y’all, these two are SO loved! I know they are going to have the perfect life together, even when it’s full of life’s many ups and downs. So without further ado, a huge cheers and congratulations to Mr. + Mrs. Gordon!!! I’m so happy to know ya!

Rebecca somehow made us both relaxed and produced absolute magic! She instructed us while still making the photos look candid, reliably captured our "good sides," and brought her unique eye for lighting and settings (pro tip: do whatever she says even if it seems funny or in a different location; it will look utterly amazing). Photos can be an investment and I'm glad we did the research and found the perfect photographer for us.

"The best (esp if you're awkward in photos)"

- Lauren + Hunter

I can't even put into words how amazing Rebecca is. We knew from the moment our engagement photos began that we made the right choice. She is so professional, charismatic, and excited to be a part of your big day.  I would recommend her over and over again!

"Speechless."

- Bianca + Kyle

Rebecca was such a joy to work with, our experience with her was absolute perfection from beginning to end! Even from our first conversation, I could tell that she genuinely cares about getting to know her clients and what they prioritize and want to capture on the big day. She was always so responsive and available by phone or email, communication was a total breeze. Rebecca is not only incredibly talented, but a wonderful human being, and we loved working with her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to all future brides!

"Rebecca was a dream!"

- Casey + Kofi

It was truly a pleasure working with Rebecca. She is so sweet and easy to work with, we felt so relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication is timely, prices are reasonable. She listened to us and did such a perfect job capturing every moment on our special day. And most importantly - the pictures turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!! I can't recommend her enough.

"Love love love Rebecca!"
