Wedding and portrait Photographers based in South Jersey. Traveling to PA, NY and beyond!
"My first memory of photography sounds a little silly. When I was really little, my parents would have get-togethers with their friends from out of town; and always before they left, would ask if I could "try" to take a photo of them together. They'd hand me a cheap 35mm film camera, smile at my little hands wrapped around it as I squinted one eye and snapped a photo. They'd laugh, hug and hope for the best when the photos got developed at the drug store. Remember those days? And every time those photos came back, my mom would get a call from her friend. "I can't believe it! Its a perfect photo! My husband always cuts off our heads but she got it just right!" I'd beam with pride knowing that something as simple as taking a nice photo could bring someone joy. I've been chasing that feeling ever since.
For me, it's hard to say I'm just a photographer because I feel like we are more than that. I'm a memory preserver, a chaser of light, a creator of beauty, a new perspective. And you are more than just a client. You're an epic love, smiles I'll never forget, a unique subject. You are the other half of my art. My muse. Photography will always be a passion for me; I just so happen to be extremely lucky that it's also my job." - Nona

During her time in college, she began practicing photography more frequently and began her business. With almost 10 years of portrait experience, in 2018 she went "all in" as a full time photographer. Beginning in 2021, transitioning to exclusively a wedding/love story photographer.
