Who hasn’t dreamed of jetting off and eloping at City Hall? In Jersey City, courthouse elopements can take place on a stunning patio overlooking the city. On top of that, the architecture of the old city hall is really quite pretty. It’s definitely one of my favorite buildings to photograph in front of. Alyssa and Chris were an absolute dream to photograph – fun, sweet, and excited to spend the rest of their lives together. My favorite. I had the absolute pleasure of photographing both their engagement photos in November 2019 and their intimate city hall ceremony in 2020. Plus, the larger celebration will take place in California (the bride’s home state!) this year. These two have a lot to look forward to and I can’t wait to watch them continue to celebrate each year (no pressure!).

Devin is an absolute dream! Both my husband and I adore her, and are so lucky we found her to photograph our intimate wedding day. Like so many others, we're a coronavirus couple and our summer wedding plans were completely thrown out the window. Determined to get married on our original date, we opted to move forward with a ceremony locally, despite all of our vendors being in another state where our wedding was originally planned. Because nothing in life is for certain (can I get an amen!?) I opted to wear my wedding gown, gather our family members, and photograph the day. Enter Devin! She was an absolute breath of fresh air. We hired her a month before we said 'I do', put our trust in her, and she did not disappoint. She was professional from start to finish. She communicated with us regularly and was extremely well organized. On top of that she was sweet, optimistic, flexible, and understanding—all the things we need more of in 2020. Even up until the final hour, she was scoping out new first look locations for us because it was supposed to rain. Not only did we love working with Devin, but we LOVE the pictures she took. She is a very talented photographer! We were blown away when she sent us the previews and are so happy she captured the most important day of our lives for us. We highly recommend Devin!!

TLDR: Don't think twice. Hire Devin now for a top-notch experience and the dreamiest photos!!! The longer version: My now husband and I hired Devin with a month's notice to photograph our elopement on our stoop (!), after our big wedding was postponed due to COVID-19 (and after restrictions were loosened to allow small outdoor gatherings--ours was a group of six, including Devin). Devin responded right away (key, for an anxious bride like me!), got on the phone with me to talk through my needs and vision (I had no idea of direction as we were quickly trying to pull together details), and offered me flexible options and custom pricing given the uncertainty with COVID-19. I was sold. From there, she checked in a few times, and, aside from a few shots I had in mind, I basically asked her to wing it for the wedding. Her professionalism, frequent contact, and portfolio were enough to reassure me that I could trust she'd capture the day beautifully. And that she did. She was flexible on the day of, and got right to doing what she does best so I could focus on my husband. She also took all safety precautions and respected safety requests I had. Everything was flawless, and Devin made great suggestions for photos when we had extra time left with her. I'll never forget how perfect the day was, but the gallery that Devin delivered was over the top perfection. She captured our simple elopement in a way that was elevated, elegant, and sophisticated, yet still relaxed and spontaneous. Weeks later, I have not stopped staring at the pictures. Thank you, Devin, for giving us the most beautiful photos to remember one of the most special moments of our lives.

We can’t recommend Mile Square Moments enough! After we saw our close friend’s engagement photos, we knew who we wanted to capture our wedding. We were extremely lucky Devin was available and we highly recommend getting her on your calendar as soon as possible. Throughout the process, with last minute adjustments, changes due to Covid, Devin was always available, engaged, helpful, easygoing, detailed, and provided wonderful suggestions to ease the burden. Devin was a Godsend! During the wedding, Devin was perfect, super professional, not overbearing, but omnipresent and just had this calm way about her, perfect for the intimate environment. Hard to put a finger on it, but we just knew Devin had us covered. After the wedding, Devin was super prepared, organized and got everyone where they needed to be without losing that easygoing nature. Multiple folks remarked how good Devin was. From experience, wedding photographers can go 2 ways sometimes, it can be very involved/overbearing, maybe a bit too much, or it can be too passive, where you wish a correction was made after the fact. Devin was perfectly in the middle, super efficient and deliberate so we weren’t wasting time but also making the simple, important corrections when needed. No shortcuts and no feelings of ‘when are these going to be done?’ After wedding photos were a lot of fun. Devin’s so likable and takes such a genuine interest in her couples it felt like we’ve been friends for a long time! Great experience and perfect ending to our time in front of the professional lens. So, there you have it, perfect experience for our perfect day. And then we got the photos! Which were everything we hoped they could be and more!

We found Devin and her company Mile Square Moments through the Love Wed Collective after our destination wedding in Colorado got canceled due to COVID-19 and we had to make new plans for a local micro wedding. From the very first conversation with Devin I felt she understood me and totally got the vibe I was going for. She was super responsive and really helped us to make the perfect flow of our photography for that day. She even helped us coordinate the perfect first look (we were unsure if we wanted to even do one and I’m so glad we listened to her)! I loved that she made it easy to be in front of the camera and was great at directing the best shots. Our pictures were EVERYTHING we wanted and we have received so many compliments on them. I was in love with every aspect of my pictures. From all the little details she captured to the candid shots I discovered when we got our final pictures back. Ordering our prints was even a delight because they came in adorable packaging wrapped delicately in tissue and a ribbon. I could go on and on but the fact is that we highly recommend Mile Square Moments!

Working with Devin was an absolute pleasure! She helped us transition our celebration from a traditional wedding to a microwedding and was incredibly flexible and reasonable in dealing with all the changes needed and desired due to the pandemic. Devin is a positive force and helped us remain calm, organized, and excited all throughout planning and our big day! She happily introduced us to other vendors who all exceeded expectations as well. Devin provided clear guidance to get great shots, blended in perfectly to get nice candid photos, has provided stunning images for our previews and we can’t wait to see the rest of her work. We are so grateful!

Devin is one of the easiest professionals to work with. On top of being such a kind human being who puts true & sincere thought behind each shot, she gives you options you never would have thought of on your own. She has a keen eye and leverages the environment around to capture beautiful moments from your event. My husband and I began planning with Devin prior to COVID and when we decided to change our wedding plans to an outdoor micro ceremony in Hoboken, Devin was so supportive, flexible, and encouraging. Her enthusiasm and optimism made us feel confident that we would have an incredible ceremony! Her pictures are wonderful and proofs were shared very quickly. We are so grateful for these beautiful photos! I cannot wait to create a wedding book & work with her again for our postponed reception!

I found Devin two and a half weeks before my last-minute planned intimate wedding ceremony to my now husband on our 8-year dating anniversary (we did this due to possibly postponing our wedding reception because of COVID-19 and wanted to get married instead of waiting another year). Devin responded immediately and I knew she was the perfect fit once I got off the phone with her. She was very involved from start to finish, which definitely helped my anxiety surrounding planning a last-minute wedding ceremony! On the day of, Devin truly was patient, kind, and amazing. She made me feel so calm with all the last minute things that went wrong (when I forgot my bouquet, she helped connected me to a florist who provided one within 30 minutes, etc.) and helped capture all the pictures I had in mind for that day. The pictures she captured went beyond my expectations. I would recommend her to anyone for any special event and I will definitely be using her for other events in the near future!
