Jersey Shore Engagement – Nick & Lauren

If you follow along on Instagram, you saw this sneak peek from Nick & Lauren’s Jersey Shore engagement photos last week.  The lighting basically had me in heaven.

What you wouldn’t know from looking at the photos, is that we almost had to reschedule this session due to a hurricane.  Casual, right?

When Lauren and I first started chatting about their session and locations, we thought about shooting in NYC where they live.  Like most things these days, COVID threw that a for a bit of a loop.  Instead, Lauren decided that we should shoot on the shore where they had been quarantining for the summer before their return to the city.

During our session, we were chatting and I couldn’t help but note how laidback and wonderful these two are.  A beach session was the perfect fit for them!

Plus, the hurricane subsided, the rain stopped about an hour before we started, and we ended up with the perfect breeze and sunset. Basically a perfect equation!

Before we started shooting, Nick and Lauren both teased about how they didn’t love having their photos taken.  I swear, I think they were lying.  These two are such naturals that I barely even had to tell them what to do! That’s how you know that their connection is just so easy and joyful!

Again, did I mention I was in heaven?

At any rate, I could go on and on about these two, but instead I’ll let you see for yourself.  They’re just the best! Enjoy Nick & Lauren’s Jersey Shore engagement photos.

It’s safe to say, I am very much looking forward to seeing these two again for their wedding celebration next June, with Sara Reynolds Events! It’s going to be amazing!!

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.

Lauren grew up spending her summers at the shore, and when she and Nick got together, she couldn't help but introduce him, too!  Their session in New Jersey was filled with gorgeous light, sweet smiles, and so much love & laughter.

Connor and Alli's wedding celebration was full of lush florals, gorgeous details, and a whole lot of joy.  Their first look was one of the most sacred moments I've witness on a wedding day... filled with so much delight and love!

One of my greatest inspirations comes from exploring and the California coast fulfills that wanderlust like nothing else.  Anytime I have rolling hills and oceanside views, I'm in heaven.

She's the ultimate hypewoman. I was pretty nervous about being photographed and Lauren made everything fun and flexible. Honestly, I can't imagine the day without her and her team. They were wonderful and hearing from Lauren was always a genuine delight.
