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!

Philadelphia Engagement Photographer | Old City | Sam + Matt
Remember when we had color outside?  I miss it.  Thankfully I still had Sam and Matt’s engagement pictures from one of the last colorful days of the year.  We skipped around Old City for some cobblestone streets and classic Philly feels. The afternoon was blue and clear.  Race Street Pier is always a great starting point. They mentioned that they saw the brand new Cherry Street Pier so we checked it out and were so pleasantly surprised.  The open iron rafters and views of the water were just perfection!  Sam explained Matt’s wandering to check out the plants.  He’s big into gardening and often stops them to point out certain pla ...
