Brittany & Ryan Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens Middletown NJ

Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens

Brittany and Ryan’s Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens in Middletown NJ was so much fun and it has become one of my new favorite places to shoot. We were so close to postponing the engagement session because of the possible rain that we were supposed to have but the skies held up and we had an extremely successful session.

For anyone who has ever been to Deep Cut Gardens, knows that there is a beautiful rose garden with no shade covering. It was nice to shoot there and not have the hot sun beating down on us. Brittany and Ryan were so much fun to work with and I have to say that Ryan nailed the Cookie Monster voice. I was very impressed. Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens

The one thing all three of us was looking forward to was shooting in the greenhouse, however, it was locked. It didn’t make any sense but it was closed. These two just knew how to have fun. You could tell they were happy and Ryan liked it when I told him to touch her but. His entire face lit up. Brittany couldn’t stop laughing. Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens

They had been working together for about 3 years before they started dating. “We were both in the Events Department and she was his boss. They traveled a lot together, had the best time when they were together but they were seeing other people. When they finally did start dating, it was 8 months before they could tell anyone that they were dating. Brittany said it was the hardest thing they had to do. Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens

I could tell that these two were happy to be together. When I met with Brittany and Ryan for the first time I knew that we were going to be good friends after the engagement session. We laughed the entire session and I am so grateful to have met these two.

I asked Ryan where he took Brittany for their first date and he said it was the Star Tavern in June of 2017. She told me it was a little fun sneaking around because no one knew that they were dating.

They were best friends first but it wasn’t until they were at her friend’s wedding at Valley Forge, “drinking having a good time when he told me he loved me. The next morning we were talking and I jokingly told him I hate you…..He said you hate how much you…love me! you said you loved me back last night!” Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens

Flash forward to June 2019, Ryan proposed to Brittany in Lake Hopatcong at his parent’s house. They are super excited to get married in California and because all of her family still lives there, they will finally all be together and celebrate!

Brittany and Ryan will be tying the knot in October 2021 in California.

Brittany and Ryan, I want to thank you both so much for allowing me to capture your amazing love story. I am honored and humbled to call you two friends and I am excited to see what the future has in store for you. Your wedding is going to be beautiful and I am so excited for you both. Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Coutts. Engagement Session Deep Cut Gardens
