A Sayen Gardens Engagement Shoot

Love is definitely in the air and Wedding season is most definitely upon us! As is evident by my other recent Engagement Session for Ashley and Jacob who will soon be tying the knot in August. I was also present at this gorgeous couples' surprise proposal here.

The setting for their Engagement Session was also at stunning outdoor garden in Central Jersey called Sayen Gardens. An idyllic botanical oasis. The evening of this E-session the park was illuminated by that ever elusive and cove table "golden hour"and that ethereal light... Please enjoy some of my favorite takes of this fun and romantic evening: 

Agh, that sunflare, nothing like it. Hope you enjoyed these lovely takes!

I have many more client portrait sessions planned for the Summer season, including more Engagement Shoots so please stay tuned.

A LongWood Gardens Engagement Session.

One of my most recent Engagement Sessions was for Luis and Cassie, a beautiful copule who's surprise proposal I documented a few months ago here. 

C&L chose the magnificent Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, as the destination backdrop for their engagement shoot. This place holds significance to them because it was here when their relationship began to "bloom." 

I love the dynamic, chemistry and undeniable love these two share - we did a lot of walking through the massive gardens to capture some very special intimate, romantic and fun moments between these two.

Please enjoy some of my favorites takes of the day:

So many beautiful moments between these two, the love is palpable!  So happy for these two and the life they will plan together, there is nothing I enjoy more than capturing timeless moments of true love...Congrats once again C&L!

Stay tuned for more...coming up next.
