Winter Asbury Boardwalk Engagement Session, NJ | Mat & Lauren

Set the Scene: A cool Winter evening at the Asbury Park Beach & Boardwalk, NJ

In the crisp December air, the Asbury Park Boardwalk transformed into a magical stage for Mat and Lauren’s engagement session. Wrapped in the warmth of their love (and cozy winter attire!), they strolled along the iconic boardwalk, their laughter mingling with the rhythmic crash of the waves. The setting sun cast a golden glow over the scene, illuminating their playful dance moves by the water. With the upbeat tunes of Bleachers floating from my speaker, every snapshot captured their vibrant energy and the sheer joy of the moment.

Mat and Lauren are a duo whose love story is as heartwarming as their presence is delightful. From their first encounter at a summer camp to their shared passion for adventure and teaching, their journey is a testament to the beauty of love that grows in the most unexpected places. Their engagement session wasn’t just a photoshoot; it was a celebration of their unique bond, filled with laughter, dance, and the serenity of the Asbury Park Boardwalk.

Their Love Story

It all began in the summer of 2016, amidst the youthful energy of a summer camp. While working with the same group of campers, Mat and Lauren’s paths crossed, sparking a connection that quickly blossomed into something more profound. Post-summer, their relationship flourished, rooted in shared memories and a mutual love for the camp.

Fast forward to 2021, under the guise of assisting at a camp event, Mat led Lauren to a lakeside spot steeped in their shared history. There, amidst the tranquility of nature, he proposed, marking the beginning of their forever. Lauren’s joy was doubled when she learned that Mat had sought her parents’ blessings – a gesture that deeply resonated with her values and family traditions.

Now, as they embark on new adventures, including welcoming a new furry member to their family and pursuing exciting summer plans, Mat and Lauren are eagerly anticipating their wedding at the Desmond Hotel Malvern. Their life together, already rich with shared experiences, is poised to blossom even further.
