I hadn’t been photographed in years because I am not photogenic. Glenna put me at ease and also showed me how to pose. Her background was pure artistry. I was thrilled with the finished pictures and also feel like I truly made a friend. I highly recommend working with Glenna!

"Glenna is the most talented, patient photographer I could’ve ever hoped to work with."

She’s patient, meticulous, and as professional as they get. I love that she takes everything about the individual into consideration. All my fears were relieved once I walked into her studio and by the end of the session, I was beyond satisfied. And my photos are absolutely beautiful.

What to expect working with a NJ surprise proposal photographer

Being a small New Jersey photography studio gives me the unique opportunity to take the time to get to know each of my clients. Unlike other photographers, my policy is to never book more than one photo session per day. Also, I  don’t place a time limit on your photoshoot so I can provide intentional, uninterrupted time to get to know you and the story you want to tell. It is so important to make sure this moment goes smoothly and I am meticulous about this. 

Surprise Proposal and Engagement Signature Experiences

Each Signature Portrait Experience is designed and customized to the smallest detail so that we reflect your story as accurately and authentically as possible.

We'll go through several consultation calls together, so I can get to know your style, personality, and vision. Whether you’re planning a surprise proposal or capturing your excitement after an engagement , this is a truly collaborative, all-inclusive experience that begins when you inquire and lasts a lifetime.

The luxury, stress-free experience

After you reach out, we’ll schedule a call to get to know each other more. While text messages are instantaneous, I prefer jumping on a quick, low-pressure call to truly get to know you. I’ll ask questions about the story you want to tell, and we’ll get the wheels turning on some ideas on how to capture it.


complimentary consultation call

Even before you step into my NJ photography studio, I’ll help you change the way you see yourself by showing you how much value you bring to this world.

In our consultations leading up to your session, we will discuss more concrete ideas, show you some props and client wardrobe from my studio we can incorporate into your session, talk about anyone you want to include in your photoshoot, and anything else you’d like to discuss.

We will also have a separate design and wardrobe consultation call to make sure you feel confident and fully prepared for your big day!


the journey officially begins

It's important to me that I give every client my full attention and creativity. That's why I only book one session per day so that we don't feel rushed and we have time to bring your vision to life. My guarantee to you is that this experience will be nothing but enjoyable, relaxing, and fun.


one session per day

Once your portraits are ready, we’ll set up an ordering session. Think of this more like a celebration — the kids will stay home, we’ll have time to thoroughly look through photos, have some refreshments, and make an event out of it! Every women's portrait session is followed immediately by an ordering session.
Whether you choose stunning wall portraits that you can walk by every day, a folio box you can share with loved ones when they visit, or an album that sits on your table for easy browsing, we can collaborate on which products you want so you get the most out of your investment. Plus, you will receive matching digital versions of your portraits.
