Couples Session Roosevelt Park
Sam and Adam’s couples session Roosevelt Park in Edison, NJ, was a session I was able to knock off my bucket list! With all the snow we have been getting, I wanted to get out there and shoot a couples session. I posted on my Instagram story, and Sam & Adam reached out saying they were available and interested in shooting yesterday morning!
I wanted to find a place that I’ve never shot at before, and that was halfway for both of us. I knew the snow and travel might be an issue, so I wanted to make sure we were meeting at the halfway point. Couples Session Roosevelt Park
The location was exactly what I wanted. The way the sun was glistening off the snow and hitting them added a beautiful amount of diffusion and never once was overpowering. Most photographers are scared to or aren’t 100% sure how to shoot in the sun, and all I can say is that you won’t get good at something unless you start practicing it.
The amount of snow that we had to work with was insane, and I didn’t think we would have THAT much snow to trek through, but let me tell you, it was all worth it! These two did an amazing job, and the amount of beauty in these photos is none like I’ve ever seen. Shooting with a couple who has been married versus photographing someone who is engaged is very different! Their love is slightly more robust, and they’re even more connected.
The session was quick, but we got a lot done! Granted, it was 18º outside, and we couldn’t bear the cold much longer, but the setting was right, the sun was at the right height in the sky, and there was still a lot of snow left on the trees. Couples Session Roosevelt Park
Sam wore a beautiful Cherry Color Velvet Dress with boots, and let me tell you, it was stunning. The sunlight was at the right angle in the sky, and I could get some more intimate shots with them. Couples Session Roosevelt Park
All and all, this session was absolutely incredible, and I am so glad that I got to knock this off of my bucket list and I cannot wait to do more of these beautiful sessions in the snow!
Thanks so much, Sam and Adam, for allowing me to capture your beautiful relationship from behind my camera!
