Summer Liberty State Park Engagement

Jersey City, New Jersey


I had such an amazing time working with April and Brian, and their cute pup, Nike! These two originally met in California where April is from, but Brian eventually brought her over to the east coast, where he is from in Jersey, and they’ve be here ever since!

Here’s how April describes how they first met:

“Brian parked in front of my smoothie bar and I came out to yell at him that he couldn’t park there. When I went outside, he was soooo cute! Instead, I gave him a coupon for a chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie. He came into the store and we hit it off! We were friends for about six months and then started dating. We have been dating for four years…crazy time has flown!”

I wish I could go into more detail about Brian’s proposal to April, but I have been sworn to secrecy, for now… however, I will say that it has to do with one of my favorite pastimes… and I will leave it at that!

We were so lucky to have absolutely beautiful weather for this engagement session and got some of the prettiest light coming through the willow trees at Liberty State Park. Since it was such a gorgeous day out, there were TONS of people (and dogs!) taking advantage of one of the last summer weekends of the year, but you’d never be able to tell from the photos!

Although April and Brian had never had professional photos taken before, they were naturals in no time. I had a blast working with this fun couple, and am so excited for them to start this next chapter of their lives together!
