From the steps of my front door, I can see this beautiful farm. During the planting months, I hear the mow of the tractors working on the crops and my little ones, love to see the large John Deere machines plowing the land. I’ve been in awe of this beautiful farm since my husband and I moved in. So when I got a call from Shanna, asking if I was a photographer located in Washington, NJ.. I said, YES! When she told me where her ceremony would be, I put two and two together and learned that this incredible farm belongs to her grandparents.
Shanna and James knew it was the perfect place for their wedding as this couple is deeply rooted in their families. I believe it truly shows in their images too. Family was incorporated throughout the day and in every aspect of their wedding. And when it came time for their portraits, we spent some extra time climbing into the lofts of the barn making some magic happen. And it was MAGIC.. I felt such a strong connection between Shanna and James from the moment I met them. Shanna is in Med School in NY and James is stationed in Maryland. He drives almost every weekend 6 hours to see her. Being around them was like being part of a modern day fairytale. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy..they fall in love and marry on her family’s farm in front of those they love and adore. Does it get any better? No. It does not. 🙂 Shanna and James, you both are incredible and your love story will last with me for years and years to come. I wish you the best, now and always!
Shanna’s brother is active duty Air Force and was able to travel to the wedding. 🙂

This pillow was used in James’s parent’s wedding ceremony.
Their ceremony took place on the 1700s portion of the home.
This car was the car Shanna’s grandfather took her grandmother on their first date!
This photo makes me laugh! Shanna asked her brother for a pair of socks to wear with her boots! 🙂
