Historic Smithville Mansion Engagement Photos // Eastampton, NJ

Back in 2021, I photographed a wedding where I met Katrina in the wedding party. She loved how her cousin’s photographs turned out so much, that she quickly reached out once her and Alex got engaged! I’m always so excited when I get to work with sweet couples from past weddings! They’re planning they’re special day in May at Bellevue Hall and I can’t wait to be back! We had their Historic Smithville Mansion engagement photos in the spring and they are to die for.

These two met the old fashioned way, on Tinder! Their first date was at Yards Brewing for a few beers, then they headed over to Revolutions for bowling! Now over 5 years later,t hey’ve built a life together and enjoy traveling, Eagles games, and cooking dinner together.

EXPLORING HISTORIC SMITHVILLE

I couldn’t wait for their engagement session! The weather was pretty cloudy that day, but the blooms were jawdropping! Alex and Katrina love Historic Smithville Mansion and Park because it’s one of their favorite places to walk the trails, especially with their sweet pup.

I brought along some 35mm film to use at their session! Katrina is a fellow film lover, so I couldn’t think of a better reason to use it! I’m in love with Kodak Portra stock, and it made the dreamiest photos for them. I love everything about their session and am SO excited for their wedding day. Enjoy some favorites from their engagement session!

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!"
