Krista & Zach's Estate at Eagle Lake Wedding - South Jersey Wedding Photographer

I have been hearing wonderful things about the new venue in town, The Estate at Eagle Lake, for months when Krista and Zach first reached out. I was super excited when they told me they were having their wedding at The Estate at Eagle Lake! We met up there to walk around and talk all about their wedding plans. I knew right away they would be so fun to work with and their wedding was going to be gorgeous!

Krista and Zach both proclaimed they couldn’t take a serious picture but man oh man where they wrong! These two have serious chemistry and they were so easy to take portraits of! As you scroll through the pictures of their day you’ll see for yourself! We spent about an hour exploring the Estate at Eagle Lake’s property and found so many great spots for their portraits. They did absolutely amazing taking pictures, then had a heart felt ceremony by the lake followed up by an awesome party and dancing! It was an amazing day from start to finish!

AJ's 1st Birthday and Cake Smash - South Jersey Children's Photographer

AJ came to see me in the studio a couple days before his first birthday. We had fun building a Little Man theme around his super cute 1st Birthday shirt. My son had the same theme for his first birthday so it’s very special to me.

We started out with his birthday portraits in front of an adorable mustache backdrop. AJ did amazing and was so happy the whole time! As long as we kept him in the chair he stayed still for us. If we put him down he was crawling as fast as he could right over to his cake! After we did some pictures with his big sister we let him have that cake :)

AJ wasn’t shy about jumping right into playing with his cake. His grandma made an adorable cake for him and he definitely seemed to find it quite tasty! He made quick work of destroying the whole cake. Cake literally flew all around the studio! AJ definitely wins for the most destructive cake session haha!


Kacie's Maternity Session at Tyler State Park - South Jersey Family Photographer

Kacie’s maternity session at Tyler State Park was extra special to me. I’ve been there for almost every step of her and Luke’s love story, documenting it all. From his proposal at Prospector’s Steak House and Bar to their engagement, wedding and first baby boy Brayden’s newborn session. I’ve loved having a front row seat to watch their love story unfold.

Kacie looked absolutely stunning for their maternity session. She wore a gorgeous maroon dress that just popped so wonderfully against the park’s backdrop. Brayden did amazing too and smiled so big for all of his pictures! We had a great time and you’d never known they were all braving the cold February weather! Tyler State Park was the perfect backdrop for their maternity session and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day!

Miller Family Session at Kirby's Mill - South Jersey Family Photographer

The tease of warm weather this weekend has me thinking forward to Spring! I can’t wait to be out shooting in the beautiful sunlight again soon. Last spring I had a great time taking the Miller’s family portraits at Kirby’s Mill in Medford. It’s such a cute little spot that is packed full of great picture locations. I always love getting together with the Millers too! Their girls are so incredibly sweet. Their older daughter melted my heart when she took my hand to walk over to the next spot. It was such a great session full of so much family love!

Happy Valentine's Day! South Jersey Children's Photographer

Happy Valentine’s Day! This weekend I did a Valentine Day session with the kids and it came out so cute. It was a fun way to kick off the year! We did some portraits of each of them on a simple wood backdrop and then a super cute Valentine backdrop. The simplicity really let the kids shine and show off their beautiful smiles.

Brayden's 1st Birthday and Cake Smash - South Jersey Cake Smash Photographer

Brayden came to visit me in the studio for his first birthday and cake smash session. This session was super special and a bit emotional because Brayden is a special little boy. He was born early at barely 30 weeks and fought hard to grow strong over the last year. Mom and Dad wanted to incorporate his NICU picture and I was happy to make it happen! Brayden wasn’t really into smashing his cake but we still had a great time.

Tom and Julianna Engagement Session at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden - Philadelphia Wedding Photographer

Julianna and Thomas’ engagement session was the most unique one I’ve done so far and it was so awesome! Julianna reached out to me about having the session at the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden and I was so excited to shoot someplace new. I’ve never been to the Shofuso Japanese House before and it was so interesting to visit there.

Kiah and Sonny's Vow Renewal - South Jersey Wedding Photographer Medford, NJ

On a warm, rainy day in June I headed to Pine Hill, NJ for Sonny and Kiah's vow renewal. The day was incorporating two religious ceremonies so our first stop was the Sikh Gurdwara of Pine Hill. It was my first time photographing a Sihk wedding ceremony and everyone was so welcoming! Kiah and Sonny are surrounded by such wonderful family and friends. After the beautiful ceremony we headed to Medford, NJ to have a 2nd ceremony. The rain had started to come down before we went into the morning Sihk ceremony but the weather cleared in time for us to head to Kiah and Sonny's house in Medford, NJ. After we took some portraits Kiah then changed into her wedding gown. She looked stunning in both outfits! After she changed we did a first look since Sonny and Kiah hadn't seen each other yet since she changed. Afterwards we headed to the backyard for the Christian ceremony and then the reception. The entire day was so wonderful from start to finish and the weather held off for us! 

Watermelon Mini Session - South Jersey Children's Photographer

I had so much fun doing the Watermelon Mini Sessions. All of the kids enjoyed their watermelon treat and their parents and I had quite a few laughs watching them. I've been thinking about doing these sessions for a few uears and I'm so glad I did them finally. The set came out just like I pictured it and the kids had a blast. I can't wait to do it again this weekend. There are still some session times open if you'd like to join us!  www.abbeybradshawphotography.com/watermelon-minis

Mama-togs Mommy and Me 2018 - South Jersey Family Photographer

Last week the Mama-togs all got together to exchange pictures of each other with their children. As photographers we always end up behind the camera and rarely get pictures with our families so this is a great chance to focus on the moms! We met up at Boundary Creek and let the kids play while we all took time in front of the camera. I'm so happy to share my favorites of the night with you. 

Emma & Danny's South Jersey Wedding - South Jersey Wedding Photographer

It's not often that the groom does most of the planning, but Danny took the reins on his wedding. I knew right off the bat they were going to be such a sweet couple to work with and I was right! I met them on their wedding day as Danny was running around making final preparations and Emma was inside surrounded by her closest friends getting ready. As soon as I stepped out of the car I knew that we were blessed with such an awesome location.

They held their wedding at Emma's family bee farm and incorporated the bee theme into the decor. The farm was the perfect backdrop for the wedding and there was honey and bee themed touches all over. I absolutely love details and DIY weddings so it was right up my alley! Top that off with an amazing couple and you have a perfect wedding day!

Mama-togs Maternity - South Jersey Maternity Photographer

A couple weeks ago my group of mom photographers got together to celebrate two mom's to be with a maternity session. It was so much fun being in the studio! I think I've fallen in love with maternity shoots now after having so much fun playing with different looks and posing. I look forward to doing it again soon with a few mommas who are expecting this spring!
