Megan and Vinny...Engaged | Engagement Session | New Jersey Wedding Photographer | Ricketts Glen State Park | Pennsylvania
“So this is love, so this is what makes life divine.”
Meet Megan and Vinny. This was a special session for me. I have known Megan for almost seven years and she is one of my daughter's closest friends. I was so excited and honored to photograph her engagement photos.
Megan and Vinny attended the same high-school, but did not officially meet until they both started working part-time at a local pizza shop in 2013. They started dating in 2015 and have been inseparable ever since. They both share the same love for pizza, marvel superheroes, college football, and Disney.
Vinny proposed to Megan this past June at the happiest place on earth. He got down on one knee right in front of Cinderella's castle while surrounded by close friends that felt like family. To say Megan was surprised is an understatement.
The couple envisioned their engagement shoot somewhere forest-y, magical, and definitely wanted to take pictures in the water. So we made that happen at Ricketts Glen State Park in Northeast Pennsylvania. And magical it was.

Their session is full of all of the things they love, from Disney to Gators football. These pictures truly capture what makes this couple who they are and how they fell in love.
These two are so cute together. You can see and feel the love they share.
During their session they wore Disney headbands to attribute to where they got engaged. They plan on having Disney touches all throughout their wedding. Megan even brought pizza for them to eat during their session from the very pizza place they met and worked at!
Twirling, Kisses, and Waterfalls
We walked down the path and decided to take some photographs in front of the waterfalls. The colors of fall and the algae on the rocks by the falls made for some beautiful photography. The lighting was perfect how it illuminated Megan and Vinny!
While heading over to the bridge, a tree caught Megan's eye and she wanted to do this one pose. I loved the idea and we made it happen, it was perfect for her and Vinny. Now it will forever be one of my favorite photographs I have taken.
Modern-day Prince and Princess
Megan envisioned taking some photographs in her gorgeous blue dress in the water and that is what we did! I was so excited for this, I just knew that we were going to get some great shots! These photographs definitely captured some magic, Vinny and Megan look like a modern-day prince and princess. Hands-down the photos are some of my favorite I have ever taken.
Pop the Champagne!
To end our session we celebrated with popping some champagne, throwing some confetti, and of course some Gator chomps! Vinny's gator on his shirt perfectly molds around Megan, I loved it!
Cheers to Vinny and Megan
I had so much fun capturing these moments and memories for you both. I am so honored to be able to capture some of your love story and I am looking forward to your wedding in 2021. Have so much fun planning, enjoy being fiancés, and soak in this special time in your life!
