Asbury Park Engagement PhotoShoot
Asbury Park NJ has so much gong on! Of course there is the beach and Ocean. There are a few very large rock Jetty areas as well. These always make for great photos. But the boardwalk and streets are where its at! The architecture, the murals, the colors, so much for so many opportunities for different looks all around. You can get a whole series of different looks just in this small little area. From dressy pretty, to casual urban city.
This session was for Katie and Jerrell though. They are getting married so they just wanted some fun images to celebrate the engagement! While they have been together for some time already and do already share children together, this time was just for them. They actually were one of our FREE Engagement session winners! So they had nothing to loose! We got together and just walked around the area and stopped at a few different spots that appealed to all of us. All oft his was very new to them as they told me they really have never been in front of the camera before. So this was a great way to get an introduction to it all! Especially now they will be getting married and be in the spot light for a entire day! We make it very easy though. Our style and attitude is kinda chill. SO we hope you are relaxed and comfortable. If you are then it will show in your images!
Here’s the thing: wedding photos are so much more than pretty couple portraits or a *smile for the camera* feel. Photos have the ability to transport us back to a moment. They bring back what it felt like to be in that moment. Images bring our memories to life. Photos bring our memories to LIFE.
And that is where we come in. Feeling like yourself in the images makes your memories even stronger. Not only will you be in capable, kind hands but have someone who will make you feel like Lady Gaga all day and more like an old friend versus a stuffy photographer.
One thing bridesmaids tell us ALL the time is, “I love my wedding photos. But I hated my wedding photographer.” Even with the most beautiful wedding photos in the world, there will ALWAYS be that “but” if the photographer brought a negative presence or didn’t care. Which is why we take our job SO seriously!
You can expect fun prompts and loving direction and guidance to ensure you feel relaxed and truly yourself in front of the camera.
Scared of having a photographer that feels like an outsider on such an intimate day? Never. You can expect us joking with your sassy uncle during family photos or bonding with your grandma about how gosh damn beautiful you look in her wedding veil. We come in feeling like another guest, not a stuffy photographer.
Well for now here are just a couple of image from this fun Asbury Park Engagement PhotoShoot
