Amanda and AJ - on the beach on Long Beach Island

July evenings are made for the beach!  I met Amanda a few years ago when I photographed her sister’s wedding at Renault Winery.  Needless to say I was so happy to hear from her when it was her turn!  An engagement session was the perfect opportunity to meet AJ, and Long Beach Island provided the perfect backdrops.  The Island holds a special place in my heart, as well - it’s my “home beach”, I’ve been going there since I was in the stroller (who remembers the air strip in Manahawkin!)  Knowing the Island as well as I do, I had a few good spots in mind where we could photograph, but as always, we kinda made it up as we went along.  Amanda and AJ were absolutely amazing together, and their pup was just as excited as they were to be walking along the surf.  For a July evening, the beach was nice and cool, with just the right amount of mist along the ocean’s edge to give the backgrounds that gorgeous soft look.  Amanda and AJ were up to just about anything I threw at them, so we photographed right up until sunset.  Wrapping up the session, I promised I’d have photos for them to look through in about two weeks, and I wished them a good night.  And since I just had to, I packed up my gear, threw my shoes in the truck, and went down to walk in the water before I headed home.  The night was just right, with wide open windows and a rolled back sunroof for a relaxing ride home.
Beach engagement sessions are the best - call me today to set yours up!
