Ocean City NJ Engagement Photos | NJ Engagement Photographer


Nicole and Kyle are setting sail and heading towards their forever together! They’re planning their June wedding at Renault Winery on their four year anniversary and needless to say, I can’t wait to share their day with them! Photographing their Ocean City NJ engagement session was so much fun and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these two better before their big day.

Speaking of getting to know them better, they have one of the most thoughtful and sweet proposal stories ever! Nicole and her dad own a custom item small business, Frankadelphia, with its own Etsy storefront. Kyle decided that the best way to propose was to get those closest to them together, and while they were enjoying each other’s company he placed an order on Nicole’s website for a custom cup that said “Nicole will you marry me?”. Like any small biz owner, Nicole loves getting orders from her shop! Kyle was sure she’d check her phone when she got the notification. However, she was so busy chatting and catching up that she didn’t hear her phone!

Finally he brought her phone to her and asked what was ordered. At first, Nicole thought he was pranking her but alas, he was not, and Nicole said YES! He had her mom in on the surprise and they had decorations and cake waiting for after! I would say the rest is history but really these two are just getting started on the rest of their wonderful life together!


After spending some time on the Ocean City beach, we headed to Nicole’s parents beachhouse to go out on the boat! They also had their sweet Ellie in tow for some shots and she adored the attention. Blue hour on the water made for the most stunning photos! It really could not have been a more perfect day. I can’t wait to capture their love on their special day and celebrate with them! Now enjoy some favorites from their Ocean City NJ engagement photos!

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.

- 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!

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!"

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!"
