Ok, that was fun.
Jessica and Kenny are tying the knot this May at McLoones Pier House. As part of their wedding preparations, they wanted to hire us for an engagement session to get familiar with being in the spotlight in front of the camera. After a few emails and phone calls with Kenny, I got the go ahead to really think outside of the box. Long story short, we decided to shoot at the popular Jersey Shore club, Bar Anticipation in Belmar. We really hoped to photograph some of the engagement sesison on the beaches of Belmar, but it was just too cold out.
I am going to rank this session right up there with our past ‘outside of the box’ session at Costco. Jessica and Kenny, I had a great time working with you - Suzanne and I are really looking forward to your wedding.
This session goes out to all the guys who think engagement sessions are lame. They really do not have to be. Enjoy, Chris
When you look at these pictures it’s hard to believe they where taken February 21st at the Jersey Shore. Sometimes Mother Nature throws you a bone, the temperature was around 50 and the lighting that afternoon kicked ass. Rachael and Chris kind of came to us last minute to conduct an engagement session before their wedding next month. They really wanted to have some fun images for themselves and get familiar with the camera. I’d say we accomplished both - I had a great time photographing them.
Rachael and Chris are avid runners, competing in marathons and events. They requested to be photographed on Belmar Boardwalk where they train for competition. Chris actually proposed to Rachael at one the events they ran in. So the ring shots shown in this post are staged by me for fun.
All I can say is wait ’til you see the bridal party photographs from the wedding - Suzanne and I have been planning some cool shots for months. Rachael and Chris are tying the knot April 4th at Waterview Pavilion in Belmar.
