The Photographers Corner:

 I am a photographer and writer living in New Jersey. I love to learn new things and share them with others. I want to help the average person with no photography knowledge gain little tidbits in small broken down bite sized pieces.I hope you find something here that will help you out!


I am a New Jersey based cosplayer who loves to spend my time taking photos, creating costumes and attending conventions. I have been working on improving my work for over 5 years now, with the hope of achieving my dream of becoming a full time cosplay photographer. My goal is to create an environment that brings cosplayers and photographers together, so everyone can build off one another's talents and show off their hard work. I look forward to meeting new people and showing off their awesome costumes!

Spooky ceremonies & Elopements:

Hi there! I'm Hope, and my name is the only thing most people know about me. I'm a Micro Wedding & Elopement photographer based in New Jersey. I love being able to capture the feelings, emotions, and details of weddings that are too small for traditional photographers to cover. It's an honor to be able to document these intimate moments for people who are excitedly starting their lives together. I am a NJ wedding photographer who specializes in Gothic, Alternative, intimate weddings, elopements, and budget-friendly photography. We know how hard it can be to plan for a wedding, especially when you're on a budget. That's why we offer beautiful, high-quality photos without the expensive price tag. We use only the best equipment to capture your day so that you can enjoy your memories for years to come. Our goal is to provide affordable photography for all couples—not just ones who can afford our services. We want every couple to have access to beautiful pictures from their special day so they can relive it over and over again!


It's all about the groom, right?

The bride gets all the attention, and the maid of honor gets to wear the best dress. Everyone wants to know what the bride is wearing, how she did her hair, and what kind of flowers she wanted. But what about the groom? What does he want on his wedding day?

We've got you covered. In this section we'll talk about how you can make sure your groom feels like a king on his special day. We'll cover everything from appropriate attire for your groomsmen to making sure everyone has a good time at your reception.

Adventures & Meet Ups

Meetups are a great way to get out and meet other women who share your interests. Fungirlwithacamera has been to several meetups over the years, and she's always excited to go! You might be surprised how easy it is to make friends when you're surrounded by people who share similar interests. It's easier than ever today because there are so many options available through apps like Meetup and Facebook groups. It only takes a few minutes of searching before finding the right group that matches your needs!


I am a proud member of the LGBT community and I work with and photograph LGBT Couples & Weddings all over but I'm based in New Jersey. In these blog posts I cover all kinds of tips, tricks and shoots I have done.

From engagements to weddings, I love photographing my couples and their families as they prepare for each other. My style is relaxed and natural, with an eye for detail so that the images don't just look great but also tell a story about the couple's relationship.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts as much as I enjoy living them!
