Spring Cross Estate Gardens Engagement Photos // Bernardsville, NJ

It’s rare I go to the same photography location twice in one week, but it finally happened! Sarah and Paul were originally planning to meet me at Ridley Creek in PA for their engagement session, but we changed it a few days before. Thankfully I was able to recommend Cross Estate Gardens becasue it had the same vibe they were after and it was closer to home for them. A win is a win!! Their spring Cross Estate Gardens engagement photos came out SOOOO good!!

This has quickly become one of my favorite NJ engagement locations. It really is a stunning garden location and is especially pretty in the spring when everything is blooming. The gardens were decorated with daffodils and cherry blossoms, the first true signs of spring! Some of my favorite photos from Sarah and Paul’s engagement are the ones with the water tower and blooming trees. Those trees had barely blossomed when I was there earlier in the week!

These two are SO much fun! They have the best chemistry and keep each other laughing. I’m so excited for their May wedding, it’s going to be an epic celebration. The countdown is on!! In the meantime, enjoy some favorites from their spring Cross Estate Gardens 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!"
