Jake and Nicole Engagement Session Long Beach Island NJ

Engagement Session Long Beach Island NJ

Jake and Nicole’s engagement session long beach island was by far one of the best sessions I have had the pleasure of capturing. The setting was perfect, the sunset was perfect, and the people were perfect.

If you could achieve absolute perfection, this how it would look.  I met Jake and Nicole at a family party about a year ago. I have known his family for years, and when he reached out to me about shooting their wedding, I was honored.

After the engagement session, Jake and Nicole kept saying to me that he can’t believe how easy and fun the engagement session was. “Your energy is unparalleled, and it helped us truly be ourselves.”

My favorite part of the session is when we went on his uncle’s boat. I asked Nicki when I got there if we would be able to get out on the boat, and she said absolutely. We didn’t even plan for it, and those ended up being the best set of photos. We also had their entire family on the boat with us, which made it even more special.

HOW THEY MET

Jake and Nicole met back in 2015 when they were both in college. Jake went to Temple, and Nicole went to Penn State. Nicole majored in Kinesiology at Penn State and then went back to school for Nursing at Jefferson University.

Jake went to Temple University, where he double-majored in Marketing and Risk Management and Insurance.

It was at Jake’s apartment where Nicki first locked eyes with Jake. They met through her cousin Jim who was friends with Jake. Nicki told me that they locked eyes and hadn’t stopped talking from the moment they met.

I asked Nicki who struck conversation first, and she said, “I did.” Engagement Session Long Beach Island NJ

They went on their first date three weeks after they started talking but saw eachother at two parties in between that time. Jake took Nicki to Peddler’s Village. They had dinner at the Buttonwood Inn, got some hot chocolate from Pigadilly’s, and saw the Christmas lights. Engagement Session Long Beach Island NJ

The following night, at Temple on the Turf Field, Jake asked Nicki out, and the rest is history. Engagement Session Long Beach Island NJ
