Jillian + Charles! You two were seriously MADE for each other! One of my 2020 brides knew her sister was about to get proposed to by her long time boyfriend and wanted me to capture this special moment in her life! What a true honor it was to be able to keep this secret + then see it all play out!
Charles is seriously the sweetest! He had this entire weekend getaway planned out for Jillian! They decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day a week late + headed down to Cape May, NJ for a weekend at Congress Hall (what a beautiful place to get engaged!)
I was hiding out in a bush (lol) when Charles got down on one knee (cue the tears) and asked the love of his life to marry him! Let me just say that I witness a lot of special moments every year, including my couples vowing their love to one another….but a proposal, seeing his future bride’s face, tears of joy, all of the emotions… that is magical.
Of course Jillian said yes (!!) and of course we had to take a few engagement photos following their proposal! A few faves below, xo.
I’m Molly, a New Jersey and destination wedding photographer! I love helping my couples celebrate one of the most important days of their lives by telling the story of their wedding day.
Between you and me, I’ve always been a sucker for a good love story. So it made perfect sense to me when around 2016, somewhere between falling in love with my now-husband and planning for our future, photography revealed itself to me as my true calling.
