PRINCETON NASSAU HALL ENGAGEMENT: CHRIS + MEG

I have to say, I've never wanted to go back to school as badly as when I saw Chris & Meg strolling through the tree-lined pathways of Princeton University! Princeton being Meg's alma mater, these two were right at home next to the ivy-covered walls and walking the venerated old stone pathways. We ended the session at the Princeton Battlegrounds with a soft glowing sunset. It was the perfect day!

This moment reminds me of Winnie the Pooh for some reason! Just being cozy under a tree!

Princeton University was the most beautiful portrait location! 

The Princeton Battlegrounds are so pretty!!!

Chris and Meg, you two are so perfectly matched! We can't wait for the wedding! :)

NEW JERSEY ENGAGEMENT: PETE + ALLYSSA (C&CO: LAUREN)

Allyssa and Pete are cute as can be, and they are getting married at one of our favorite venues - The Ryland Inn! They fell in love with the Ryland Inn for its tastefully rustic decor. When they bought their townhouse, they essentially gutted it and re-decorated it in a very similar rustic style. Pete even built several pieces in their home! To celebrate their engagement, Lauren photographed these two just outside of Duke Farms where Pete proposed! This was the perfect location for these two nature lovers! :)

What a magical setting!!

Sunset, you so dreamy!! LOVE this sweet moment!

SKYLANDS MANOR ENGAGEMENT: NED + MEG

Pineapple obsession - check! Loves all things bright & pink - check! Says wedding photos are the most important part of their big day - check! Oh that's just a recipe for my favorite kind of bride! Meg had me happy dancing from her very first email! And any man that proposes in Charleston (Notebook fans, it was at the Boone Hall Plantation - Allie's summer home!) and then flies his fiancée back to CT for a surprise engagement party, is okay in my book! Ned, you killed it! :)

We had the BEST time exploring The Castle at Skylands Manor & Botanical Garden together! The castle was drenched in warm sunshine, making the stone carvings and cascading ivy feel like a little piece of Italy right here in New Jersey!

BLING!!!

This is why photographers love golden hour!!

Ned and Meg, we are so excited for your wedding and can hardly wait the year until it arrives!

DUMBO BROOKLYN ENGAGEMENT: SUNNY + JILL

Chris and I had SO much fun exploring DUMBO with the lovely Jill and Sunny! We used to live in Brooklyn and have so many amazing memories from this neighborhood. We started the session with a walk down to Washington & Water - the most famous intersection with a killer view of the Manhattan Bridge. Later we wandered back to One Girl Cookies for a mid-session treat, and then we ended with sunset on the pier! I have a small obsession with bridges, so I feel extra spoiled with these views. Plus there are pops of my favorite shade of blue all over the place in DUMBO. The sun even peeked out from behind the clouds for a few minutes! Congratulations Sunny and Jill, and we can't wait for your wedding at the Cork Factory Hotel! 

There's that blue! :)

Jill, you are stunning!

How cute are these Rifle Paper Co. KEDS?!

Thank you Sunny & JIll! We can't wait for the wedding!
