Stephanie and Joe | A south New Jersey Engagement Session | Hereford Inlet Lighthouse | Wildwood, NJ
I choose you. And I will choose you, over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat I'll keep choosing you - author unknown
Meet Stephanie and Joe
Stephanie and Joe met online, and their first date was to see a movie. They have been inseparable ever since! They are such a sweet couple. I loved getting to know them better and hearing their love story.
Their engagement happened on a quick weekend trip to Cape May. One morning they woke up early and went for a walk on the beach. Little did Stephanie know that as they were staring out at the water together Joe would get down on one knee and ask her to marry him. With the Cape May Lighthouse, the ocean breeze, and crashing of the waves...it created the perfect beginning to the rest of their lives together.
They both adore movies, whether they are going to the movies or staying in for the night. They both enjoy watching Yankees baseball games, and they love popcorn and root beer floats! Stephanie loves how much Joe not only tells her that he loves her, but shows it to her everyday. And Joe loves how Stephanie is his best friend, and love how they are always happy as long as they are together.
These two are perfect for each other, and the love they have for each other was evident from the moment I met them.
For their engagement shoot, we chose the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse in Wildwood, New Jersey. As many know this is one of my favorite places to photograph couples. We started out in the gorgeous garden and then headed to the beach. We picked some wildflowers for Stephanie to carry as a prop, and the filtered light peaking through the clouds created the perfect atmosphere for some beautiful photographs.
They are getting married on the beach in Cape May next year, making their engagement and wedding day come full circle. They plan on having an intimate beach ceremony surrounding by friends, family, and loved ones.
As I said before, the love these two share is evident as they twirled in the sand, played in the water, and stole loving glances at each other. Couples like this makes my job easy.
I am looking forward to their wedding day. Beach weddings are one of my absolute favorites to photograph...I may be a bit biased though!
Congratulations Stephanie and Joe, I am honored to have photographed these memories for you and I wish you so much love and happiness.
