Stephanie and Kyle’s Long Beach Island engagement session was the perfect way to close out the summer! The Sunday evening drive to LBI was so enjoyable without the typical shore traffic. We started the session at Barnegat Light – Stephanie, Kyle, myself, their dog…and Stephanie’s parents! We took some hilarious photos with mom and dad that I won’t share here but I’m thinking that in the future, if more parents want to tag along to the engagement sessions, it might be awesome!
After we wrapped up at Barnegat Light we made our way to the beach in LBI to catch a gorgeous golden sunset along with a champagne toast! So there are a few things that define me as a person, one of them being how much I love the city and really don’t like nature and/or bugs. The second is that I have a major fear of balloons popping and opening champagne bottles. So when a couple brings bottles of champagne to their session and wants to pop them open in my general direction, I panic. I gave very strict rules to pop those bottles AWAY from my face and just prayed that I got the photos in focus as I cowardly made my body as small as possible so as to not get hit with multiple corks. And it all worked out perfectly.
Thank you Stephanie and Kyle for an awesome session, not hitting me with champagne corks, for running into the ocean, and for doing endless dress twirls. Also, thank you to Mr. and Mrs. S for being good sports 😉
