Pittstown New Jersey Engagement Photographers

When I met with Meghan and Scott to discuss their wedding, we also talked about their engagement session. Why we do it, where to do it, and when. Usually the girls get excited about it and the guys…well, not so much =) So we get into why we feel that engagement sessions are important. Scott admitted the day of, he likes looking at pictures, just not being in them (don’t worry Scott, most guys say that). The location was perfect – at their own home. It fit their life and love for each other. As I was editing the images I could see and feel the connection between the two and the natural genuine expressions of love and laughter. Just driving to and from their property nestled into the side of a mountain, on a long dirt road, you can’t go fast at all, you have to drive real slow, take in the scenery, let your mind wander and appreciate the beautiful simple things in life. Meghan and Scott were great. As we walked the property for ideas they were open to everything I suggested and yeah, Scott got the picture he wanted in the barn they built. In the end we had fun and I believe, come their wedding day, they will know us better and not feel uncomfortable about pictures on such a special day. Hell, we’ll be just like part of the family. =)

 

Here are just a few of my favorites

Morris Plains NJ Engagement

Meet Colleen &  Steven | Morris Plains NJ Engagement – Easton photographer

Both Colleen and Steven graduated from Virginia Tech. They will be married on October 6, 2013. DA Visions is looking forward to capturing their special day. The celebration will take place at the beautiful Bretton Wood Mansion in Morris Plains, NJ.

Since both live in Virginia, our window for the engagement session was small. We planned it around their visiting family in New Jersey. The weather was not supposed to be favorable that day.  Colleen did the radar check and said we might be able to have an opportunity without rain for about two hours in the afternoon. Due to the weather constraint, we couldn’t afford the time traveling to a further location of choice for photos. We met them in New Jersey and drove quickly to a closer location. We only had a few minutes of rain during the session and exactly as Colleen had stated the rain came down hard as soon as we finished. whew =) Wet pants and dirty knees later, I think we got some nice images of them.

Here are a few from that day.
