Autumn Day at Spring Lake Engagement Session Ali and Michael


Meet Ali and Mike, a sweet couple from Long Island who I had the honor of photographing last summer. They came to meet me in Spring Lake for a beautiful autumn day engagement session in October. Despite the distance, their dedication shone through as they made the journey to one of my favorite spots on the Jersey Shore.

The day was perfect and the autumn breeze added a touch of romance to the air, making it a magical setting for their pre-wedding photos.

As we explored Spring Lake, the vibrant colors of fall served as a picturesque backdrop, creating beautiful moments that perfectly captured the essence of Ali and Mike’s love story. The chemistry between them was undeniable, making my job as their photographer an absolute joy. Ali and Mike’s connection was heartwarming and it was a beautiful session filled with genuine moments.

Now, we eagerly anticipate Ali and Mike’s winter wedding at the enchanting Park Chateau Estate. I know the venue will offer the perfect backdrop for the next chapter in their lives. Get ready for a heartfelt journey as we countdown to their winter celebration!

Spring Lake Engagement Album

Ali and Mike carefully crafted their engagement album, selecting a 10×10 leather album with delicate engraving on the cover. They chose our deep matte paper for the 32 pages, which added an extra layer of elegance. Here is a preview of their  album below, and continue scrolling to immerse yourself in the moments captured during their engagement session!
