I have to applaud Brianna & Ray as this day they did their Jersey City engagement photos was frigid! They live very close to here, as they work in the City. The views from Jersey City are stunning and it was a beautiful clear day.
Out of all my many years and photographing 100s of couples, I don’t think there was another couple that was together longer and knows each other like they do. Brianna met Ray (I call him Ray Ray) in middle school. I repeat middle school, not high school or college… You can tell there is a level of love and comfort very evident when you see them talk and interact. He makes her laugh and smile and she can take whatever he dishes out joke wise.
This is a pure business portrait for Ray! haha..
Jersey City Engagement Photos in the fall
We explored quite a bit of the space in Jersey City along the waterfront. There were absolutely spectacular views of the Freedom Tower from across the river. In one area they have tree stumps that are used as seats but they have such a wonderful texture and dark color to them.
One issue we had for their engagement session was that I wanted to do a sunset photo with them but we started a bit early! Brianna and her scarf were troopers. Kelly my assistant was completely frozen. I remember us almost pouring the burning hot tea on our faces to warm up from Starbucks after the session.
Unfortunately, they did not bring their cute poodle puppy with them for their session but he will make a presence on the wedding day coming down the aisle with the rings! They will have an unforgeable wedding at Mallard Island Yacht Club in Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
