August Engagement Session in Spring Lake Mary and Bryan


In August, Mary and Bryan ventured to some of our favorite spots in Spring Lake, NJ, for a charming engagement session. Against the backdrop of both the park and beach, this next part of their journey toward marriage unfolded, with the next chapter in site as they eagerly await their wedding in Montclair and celebration at The Venetian in Garfield, NJ, this March.

I met Mary thanks to one of my previous brides so I was excited to hear more about everything that had happened since I saw her at that last wedding. Her and Bryan’s engagement session started amidst the quiet of the park, where beautiful end of summer foliage and blossoming flowers provided a romantic setting. Mary looked gorgeous – wait until you see her gorgeous locks. I also loved her textured dress and Bryan of course looked handsome also.

After the park, we then headed to the beach and Mary and Bryan embraced the warmth of the sand and gentle sea breeze. I love getting to incorporate both park and beach for local engagement sessions – it’s the perfect balance and results in so much variety for printing and framing images around the home.

Mary and Bryan’s August engagement session not only captured their affection but also marked another step of their journey to matrimony. As their bond strengthens, Mary and Bryan eagerly anticipate their wedding day, surrounded by loved ones, and it will be here in no time! I’m so looking forward to getting them in front of my camera again. Here’s to my first spring wedding of 2024!

Spring Lake Engagement Album

For their engagement album, Mary and Bryan decided on an 8×8 linen album, which they then expanded to 22 pages. My wish is for them to often look through this heirloom so that memories of this special time flood back with each image. Scroll down to see their engagement photos!
