Always nice when a lovely couple reaches out to you, meets you for coffee and then decides an hour later they want you to take the wedding photography journey with them. It’s even nicer when you get together for their engagement shoot and you all get along like three close friends, while you happened to be exploring one of the most beautiful parks in the state on a perfect fall day. Yeah, I’d day this one worked out pretty well! Michael and Karina where fantastic subjects that really let their guard down and let the love come out, and it shows in the images below. The Skylands Botanical Garden of Ringwood, NJ continues to stay on top of my all time favorite engagement session locations list (especially in the fall). The conditions were absolutely gorgeous. We had a lot of fun working together and these two look fantastic. Enjoy the preview, and congrats to Michael and Karina on the engagement!
