Kristina and Brian Engagement Session Manasquan NJ

Engagement Session Manasquan NJ

Kristina and Brian’s Engagement Session Manasquan NJ was so much fun, and I truly enjoyed working with these two! I met Kristina and Brian at the end of last year when I was booked for their wedding through their DJ company. It just so happens that Kristina’s best friend is cousin’s with one of my best friends and she knew of me, but I didn’t know who they were when I was booked for their wedding.

When we had first hopped on a call to chat about the details of their wedding, they weren’t too sure about doing an engagement session, but after seeing the recent work I had done, she reached out to me about doing an engagement session for them. Our original plan was to shoot their engagement session at Cattus Island in Toms River NJ. Still, after reading some of the requirements to photograph there, we decided on a different location.

Being from Point Pleasant, Kristina thought of Manasquan Inlet and Fisherman’s Cove as a great location to shoot their engagement photos. Even though it was hot, humid, and crowded, they had a great time.

The outfits Kristina had chosen for them were perfect. My favorite was the second outfit. The way that the pink photographed against the green trees and leaves made them pop and brightened up the photos even more.

Their session indeed was a lot of fun, and I am so excited for their wedding. They will be tying the knot in November 2020 at the Crystal Ballroom in Freehold, NJ!

HOW THEY MET!

Kristina and Brian met through some mutual friends during their freshman year of college at East Stroudsburg University. “There was an America themed party in a basement. Our mutual friend I had invited asked if she could bring her group of guy friends. I said, of course. When they showed up, Brian was the only guy wearing a bright green shirt to the party, while everyone was in red, white, and blue.”

“So, of course, I had to tease him about it. We hit it off at that party and hung out every day after that. A month later, I was in his dorm room, and he asked me if I could restart his computer for him. When I went to his laptop, on the screen was a Powerpoint slide with a pink heart and the words, “Will you be my Girlfriend?” on it.”

It was a cute way to ask someone out. Having met Brian and interacting with him at their engagement session, I could tell he is more of a quiet and reserved person! So, the way he asked Kristina to be his girlfriend was an excellent Brian way of doing it.
