Set the Scene: A Cozy Fall evening at Cross Estate Gardens, NJ
As the autumn leaves painted Cross Estate Gardens in a tapestry of golds and reds, Jess and Tyler celebrated their love in a beautiful engagement session. Having known Jess since childhood, capturing their engagement was not just a photography session for me, but a joyous walk down memory lane. Their session, marked by laughter and easy chemistry, was a testament to their strong bond. It was my second time photographing them, and their love and comfort with each other in front of the camera made the session an absolute delight. Their playful interactions and tender moments captured the essence of their relationship perfectly.
Tyler’s proposal to Jess was like a scene from a fairytale, set against the historic and enchanting backdrop of Ballysaggartmore Towers. Their end-of-summer vacation turned into a beautiful new beginning for their relationship. The photos she shared on her Instagram of the moment are gorgeous!
Halfway through the session, Jess and Tyler changed outfits, adding variety and a fresh dynamic to their photos. This is something I always encourage for engagement sessions. Here’s why:
Versatility: Two outfits allow for a range of styles – one can be casual, and the other more formal. This variety adds depth to your photo album, giving you more options for different uses.
Reflects Your Personality: Multiple outfits let you express different facets of your personalities and relationship.
Adapts to Location: Different outfits can complement the changing backdrops within a location, especially in a place as diverse as Cross Estate Gardens.
Comfort and Fun: An outfit change can be a fun break, especially if one set is more relaxed, making you feel more comfortable and spontaneous during the shoot.
Jess and Tyler,
