One of my goals as a photographer is to ensure your photos are timeless. That they can hang on your walls for the next 50 years and still look fresh. I also like to make sure the location can help accomplish that. This gorgeous courthouse definitely brings and elegant beauty to the images!
The bright white stairs at the courthouse are such a clean simple background.
Even in the off season, we can count on some year round greenery!
Being the county seat, Somerville has so much to offer to its visitors. A fun spot around the holidays to sneak in some Christmas vibe.
The doors with the classic iron scrolls are always a favorite spot for couples when we shoot here. Formerly a church, this building is now used as part of the county services.
Your engagement photos are an everyday portrait of yourselves. I love the idea of embracing the casual nature of sessions at a location like this. If Somerville is a place you already frequent, this may be a spot you’ve already admired.
You can’t beat that pretty stone! Just imagine this shot as a nice big portrait for the wall!

Above all, the main focus of the engagement session is get you used to the feeling of being in front of a camera. Capturing beautiful photos might seem like the obvious purpose, but it’s more about the experience. We’ll shift the focus from “OMG I’m so awkward in front of the camera!” to “Oh this isn’t so bad, it’s just us hanging out.” That’s when we’ll get the most natural photos and you’ll feel confident that the wedding day photos will be exactly what you’ve dreamed of.
I’m Jenna. I photograph the happy stuff in and around central New Jersey. When I’m not capturing a wedding day or family moment, I’m usually scouring the nearest Trader Joe’s for a new & exciting find!
