Devon & Brian had the idea of having their engagement photos done at the beach they regularly visit! We’ve been visiting the Jersey shore since we were kids, but never stumbled into the sleepy town of Spring Lake. Needless to say, this was a perfect place for having beachy engagement photos without the craziness of the crowds we’ve come to expect at places like Wild Wood and Point Pleasant.
In our experience, beach portraits are always best at sunset – the mixture of soft Golden Light with the ocean waves, sandy beach, and couple’s in love makes for a perfectly romantic time in front of the camera.
So with this in mind – we met these two at a park within walking distance of the beach to get started.
Divine Park is a simple backdrop that adds a little diversity to the full gallery of pictures we ended up getting. The little lake and bridges add some great photo spots throughout the park – and it served as a really great warm up for those beach portraits to end the evening.
We had a great time capturing engagement photos for these two, and we’re crazy excited for their wedding next year at The Farm at Eagles Ridge in Lancaster, PA. We’re already imagining the great photos we’re going to be getting at that beautiful rustic venue, and prepping for the fun party that is expected to follow when Brian’s family from Ireland comes to town. 🙂
