Sara + Rob: Engagement Session in New Jersey

Engagement

It’s okay, you can say it… Holy s#!t, those colors are incredible! Yep, late October will get you the most amazing colors around here. (Sorry, California, the Northeast totally has you beat when it comes to the fall.)

Sara, Rob, Boz and I met up for this awesome engagement session at Smithville Park in Eastamption, New Jersey, one of my new favorite places to photograph. It was a bit muggy but everything else was pretty much perfect. The overcast skies gave off great diffused light that made the colors pop. And the grounds have a river, an old mansion, trails, barns, bricks, crawling ivy, peeling paint, crumbling buildings… just to die for.

Allow me to introduce Sara and Rob who have been together for 4 years. They met through a friend, he had heat stroke, they dated, they moved to New Jersey, got a dog, got engaged at Time in Philly, considered a big wedding for all of a few seconds, and will be getting married in a tiny wedding at Philadelphia City Hall in just a few weeks.




I should also introduce Boz, a 2(ish) year old Boston Terrier who loves cuddling and grazing but isn’t so keen on taking direction. Yeah, sounds like a terrier.




Seriously, this place was amazing! Great find, you two!





Yes, a field too. There’s a little Boz in there somewhere.


Awesome old brick walls, check!


I am so psyched for their upcoming wedding. Sara & Rob, I’ll see you two again very soon!

It was at Haru where he proposed to Kathy 3 years later (he had asked her parents’ permission while on a trip out to the west coast not long before).Dan will be moving to LA very soon to start his residency. Fingers are crossed that Kathy will be matched somewhere close by when she graduates next year.
