Kelly and Joe had the inner strength to meet me at dawn in Belmar, NJ for a sunrise engagement session. Sure, you have to get up at the wee hours of the morning, and you may be a little tired for the rest of the day, but the results speak for themselves. I have done a lot of beach shoots, but I always craved the sun low on the ocean’s horizon look that is so popular during west coast sunsets. So happy Kelly and Joe went for it to get the look here on the east coast. It was amazingly tranquil at the beach this time of day too, which was another unexpected positive. Working with Kelly and Joe was so much fun, and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding next summer. These guys are so in love, positive, beautifully candid, and incredibly generous to my camera.
