My time with Katie + Sebastian was so much fun!! They are an awesome couple and were up for anything at their engagement session! Not only are these two just so cute together, they are also high school sweethearts which makes them EXTRA cute!! Sebastian proposed to Katie in Florida…GOALS!! We we’re at Allaire State Park and although I have been there multiple times, we went exploring and came across some spots I have never seen before! That makes what I do so fun! We found this old barn which made for some really cool photos. Katie + Sebastian are getting married at Park Avenue Club in the beautiful month of October. I have never been to Park Avenue Club so I am extra excited for this one!! I am photographing at a lot of new places this year and that gets me so pumped!! I really enjoyed capturing their love + spending time with them!!

Enjoy the photos :)

I’m so excited to share this beautiful beach engagement session! I met up with Lindsay and Jason on a cold but gorgeous winter day. The beach in the winter is my FAV! There is no one there and the colors are so vibrant. Lindsay and Jason are SO cute together! You can tell how comfortable they make each other and how much fun they have together. We had such a great time exploring some of the places they love in Sea Bright. We came upon the awesome “Greetings from Sea Bright” wall art and this adorably painted bus stop which we had some fun taking photos in. After our time in Sea Bright we took a ride over to Highlands to snap some photos on the Sandy Hook Bridge which was a first for me. What a cool experience and such a gorgeous view! I am SO excited to photograph this awesome couple’s big day this September at The Mill in Spring Lake.

Enjoy the photos!

 

Pier Village Engagement Photography | Long Branch NJ | Lindsay + Bill

I met up with Lindsay and Bill the day after Christmas for their winter engagement session. Pier Village is so pretty during every season but this time of the year it looks particularly magical! It was a very crisp day so I was surprised at the amount of people that were out and about! But of course the beach was unoccupied haha! So we had the whole beach to ourselves! Lindsay and Bill were such troopers staying out there with no coats for as long as they did! After some gorgeous beach portraits we found a really cool wall behind one of the restaurants which made for some more beautiful photos. We then walked over to the ice rink for some festivity! I loved spending time with Lindsay and Bill! I met Lindsay this past Fall when she was a bridesmaid in one of my bride’s weddings! These two are such a sweet and awesome couple. They are SO cute together & you really can see the love they share. I cannot wait to photograph their SUMMER wedding at The Gramercy

Enjoy the photos!

I met up with Shannon + Erik on a beautiful summer day! The weather forecast had been predicting rain so we weren’t sure if we were going to make it before the storm but we lucked out and had absolutely beautiful weather! This couple is SO cute and I had so much fun being with them and walking around the beach & boardwalk in Avon. I LOVED Shannon’s engagement ring, it is so pretty! And their outfits fit perfectly with the beach setting. These two are such awesome, down to earth people and I cannot wait to capture their wedding day this July at the English Manor!

Enjoy the photos :)

 

Point Pleasant Engagement Photography | Brianna + Derek

I met up with Brianna and Derek on one of the last warm days of Fall. The beach is by far one of my favorite places to be. Especially when official beach season is over. It makes you appreciate it a little more…the sounds of the waves crashing, the colors of the rocks, how the sand feels against your feet, and how perfectly the sky and shore meet. Briana + Derek’s session was fun and romantic. Derek brought the engraved ring box that he proposed with which gave the session a personal touch. They also have a couples tattoo of a heart shaped lock and a key (see below). I thought that was super adorable! These two are such a sweet couple and I loved photographing their engagement session.

Congratulations Brianna & Derek!

Enjoy the photos :)

 

Allaire State Park Engagement Photography | Andrea + Shaun

It was a pretty brisk day when I met with Andrea and Shaun. These two were champs despite the chill and did a fantastic job! We started at Allaire State Park which has been one of my favorite locations for photos this year as there are so many pretty backgrounds to choose from. We walked around a little bit, chatting & getting to know each other more. We ended up near a little area that had flooded in the previous day’s storm- which made for some really awesome photos! We also found a few areas that were so sweetly decorated for Christmas. It was a nice little surprise :) After Allaire we headed over to the Manasquan Reservoir. We weren’t exactly sure where we would end up or if we were even going the right way haha! But after a quick walk through the woods we found some really great spots! These two were so easy to work with, took direction so well and were so fun to hangout with. I can not wait to capture their wedding day in 2019!! (which seems to be right around the corner!)

Enjoy the photos!

This engagement session was by far one of my favorites! Amber and Chris both took a deserved morning off from work to meet with me at Natirar Park in Gladstone, NJ. These two are beyond awesome! We had the best time walking around on one of the most perfect Fall days. The leaves were literally falling off the trees all around us. You can’t ask for anything better! Natirar Park is such a beautiful location with a large open field, a babbling brook and an adorable little bridge. I really enjoyed talking with Amber and Chris and getting to know this sweet couple more. We discussed their upcoming wedding in JAMAICA!!!! Which I am SOOO excited to be photographing for them! Thank you guys for choosing me, I can’t wait for your wedding day!

Hartshorne Park Engagement Session

Once upon a Sunday morning Lauren + Drew woke up bright & early to meet me for their engagement session!!! It was a chilly fall morning until the sun popped out and gave us some warmth & beautiful light. Lauren + Drew’s outfits paired so well with the fall colors. Lauren is from New Jersey and Drew is from Indiana- they’ve had long distance relationship for the past two years. These two are extremely sweet & I really enjoyed capturing their love and getting to know them more during our time together. We strolled around Hartshorne Park a bit, and then decided to walk down towards a little beach area. We got there at just the right time where the sun was bouncing off the water so beautifully! We expressed how glad we were to have been able to meet that day since Drew was flying back home that night! I’m so glad it worked out & I can’t wait to capture them on their wedding day this summer at The Ryland Inn!!
