David contacted me earlier in the week to chat about documenting his Congress Hall Marriage Proposal to his girlfriend, Amy. (Spoiler alert, she’s a fiance now!) David had a few really amazing ideas on how he would propose. At first it was going to be on the beach by the lighthouse, but the wind was a bit much. He decided to propose on the lawn at their hotel, Congress Hall. Which by the way, is one of the most amazing Hotel’s in Cape May! (Good choice, David!) He planned out their entire proposal, down to the champagne, ice bucket and flutes (even the chairs that faced the beach for a gorgeous sunset!) I heard it was a very nice bottle of champagne, but you should know that David is one of the world’s leading wine writers and just recently wrote a book titled, “But First, Champagne: A Modern Guide to the World’s Favorite Wine”. (Seriously, what a lucky lady to have a fiance that knows all about champagne and wine!)
As I waited for them to arrive, getting text updates from David, I did my best to hide in the bushes by the parking lot. Hotel guests were staring at me, as I am sure I looked… well… pretty shady standing in a parking lot, hiding behind bushes with a hoodie up and holding a giant piece of black metal (yep, it’s my “stalker lens” as I like to call it. Perfect for documenting proposals from far away and not being noticed!) (Although Amy told me later on, that she saw someone in the bushes with a camera… I think she knew all along this would be the day for a marriage proposal!)
Congress Hall was phenomenal, I met with Casika who unfortunately couldn’t wait to watch the proposal, but she was so excited that this was happening at their hotel! If you are even THINKING about it, stop thinking and do it, have a Congress Hall Marriage Proposal! They were so fantastic and helpful! Ask for Casika!
So, When it came time to pop the question, it was magical. David and Amy hugged and kissed, and all the love was there! I was secretly crying in the bushes because well, who wouldn’t!? When I told the hotel guests, I wasn’t some crazy person, I was documenting a proposal that would go down at approximately 6pm… of course they stayed to watch! Everyone loves a happy ending! After that, we went down to the beach to take some beautiful portraits to capture their happiness! It could not have been a better evening for a Congress Hall Marriage Proposal!
David and Amy, Congratulations on your engagement! I wish you both nothing but success in love and your future together! Thank you SO much for trusting me to capture such an intimate moment between the two of you!
My family is my world. I love our long days, no matter how crazy they may be, or get at times, they are my life, and my life is perfect. I wanted to take them out and have a Documentary Beach Session in Brigantine NJ. Brigantine is my absolute favorite beach. I grew up going to this beach, and I will continue to bring my family here. It’s special, and so are they. They deserve this beach.
I love the beach. I love my family. When I take my family to the beach, I love it so much I just want to cry. I could stay there for ever, in that special place. When we are all together, all having fun, enjoying what is right there in front of us. Nothing is better. Nothing. These are raw moments. Real, pure, in the moment, amazing, EPIC moments. None of this is staged. None of this is posed. This my family, and this is my life. We live in New Jersey, a good 10-15 minutes from the beach, and we enjoy each others company. We are… perfect. Please enjoy our Documentary Beach Session in Brigantine NJ.

I can’t wait to meet you and your family…. on the beach!
Nicholas contacted me just a few days before he would pop the big question! He planned an entire Cape May Winery Proposal! His soon to be fiance had no clue, and I was so excited to capture this special moment for them.
He had set up a tour with Mattie, at Cape May Winery, to walk around the vineyard. The end of the tour brought them to a table set for two, complete with wine from Cape May Vineyards as well as a cheese and cracker plate. My hideout was perfect. I was sitting, relaxing in plush chairs on a patio (secretly texting Nicholas to let him know we were there and ready!) As they passed by, I slowly got up and hid in the bushes and started clicking away! I was crying behind my camera, it was perfection!
I cannot thank them enough for allowing me to capture their beautiful Cape May Winery proposal, they will truly cherish this forever!
As for Cape May Winery, wow! You guys, they were so helpful, so totally in love with this idea! They not only made it absolutely perfect for them, but they were so kind to me as well! Working together as a team to make something so memorable and amazing for two people in love… It’s just the best thing in the world. A huge shout out to the owners of Cape May Winery (Toby it was SO nice meeting you!), and Mattie for being so totally awesome! If you are planning to ask your special someone, really look into having a Cape May Winery Proposal, you will not be disappointed!
Venue: Cape May Winery
