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 cute and urban to match Jessi and Josh's fun, hipster style.Not only were they sweet as can be, but Jessi had these stunning turquoise eyes and Josh had a pair of big brown beauties.We got off to a late start due to traffic and had planned to check out another site, but we ended up just playing around the little square once the sun set. It a ...
