Planning and Couple Background
When planning engagement sessions, one of the options I give my client is to choose a location they frequent. It makes the session so much smoother and the couple can relax just being in their natural environment. For Dominick and Brooke, their lovely playground for the engagement is Hacklebarney State Park in Long Valley, New Jersey. Throughout their relationship they frequented the park and would bring their dogs along for the ride. After doing some research I knew for a fact this would allow some awesome pictures. We planned the date and initiated the plan to shoot.
Nature Lovers, Natural Love Birds
This picturesque park was nothing short of magical, it provided the perfect backdrop for the couple’s love story to unfold. From the rushing river to the towering trees, every inch of the park was simply breathtaking.
As the couple strolled hand-in-hand through the park, they couldn’t help but feel the love that surrounded them. The light of the sun casted a glow on their faces, illuminating their smiles and bringing twinkles in their eyes. The photos captured the essence of the couple’s love story in every shot. Whether they were standing on the bridge overlooking the river or walking through the waterfall, their love for each other shone through in every pose.
One of the most touching moments captured in the photos was when took Brooke took Dominick’s hand and led him to a quiet spot beside the river. As they sat there, watching the water rush by, their love for each other was palpable. As the sun began to set, the couple headed back home, embracing each other and playfully strolling along the path. The warm light of the sun setting behind them created a stunning backdrop, all the way through.
Overall, Dominick and Brooke’s engagement at Hacklebarney State Park were simply stunning. It allowed me to capture the essence of their love, for us to create a bond that will set the tone for their wedding day. From the natural beauty of the park to the love that shone through in every shot, these photos will forever be treasured by the couple and their loved ones.
