Engagement Session at the New Jersey Botanical Gardens and Skylands ManorDo you know what I’m afraid of? Hairy spiders, my local Chipotle closing shop, and vampire movies. Do you know what I’m NOT afraid of? PDA. In fact, I am all about it, especially when I’m photographing a gorgeous and super in-love couple like Jillian and Eli, who were always stealing kisses and wrapping themselves up in each other throughout our engagement session!
New Jersey Botanical Gardens
Our Engagement Session at The New Jersey Botanical Garden, and then we moved to Skylands Manor to change things up a little bit. I love that I didn’t have to prompt them at all to lean in and get close, either. Can’t you feel that passion and heat through your screen? YOWZA!
I asked these two about their love story, and Jillian told me How did you two Meet?
We met within the first few weeks of our freshman year of college. We were both hanging out with our own friends, but once we started talking, we talked and laughed for the rest of the night. Now we are celebrating 8 years of dating this month (September)!As for the proposal, It was a nice, peaceful day out at Brotherhood Winery. We walked around the property and then found a beautiful, rustic gazebo. We were talking for a few minutes, then suddenly Eli took my hands and got down on one knee! For the first time in my life, I was absolutely SPEECHLESS! After the shock wore off, we drove to our favorite restaurant, where Eli had planned the most beautiful surprise engagement party with almost all of our family and friends! It was the most special day of our lives.
