Cooper River Park Engagement Session

Frances and Chris, two of the kindest humans ever, reached out about engagement photos earlier this year, and I knew right off the bat we were meant to work together! Our stories are so similar – planning a big, out of town wedding only to have plans derailed by COVID… but they wanted to cherish these moments as an engaged couple to keep their spirits up. 

Their plans for a beautiful wedding in Ireland (DREAMY) had to wait an extra year, so we hopped over to their favorite park in New Jersey to spend a little quality time together and chase some light. We were so lucky to have one of the first beautiful nights of 2021, and I truly hope this luck continues their way for their dream wedding next year!

Cooper River Park was the perfect location. We were able to sneak down to the waterfront and out onto a dock for some incredible sunset photos. Frances and Chris even played along with my crazy idea of hopping on a boat at the end of the session which resulted in some of my all time favorites. Take a peek at the end to see the results!

Frances and Chris, I wish you both the best in your wedding plans. Postponing can be such a challenging pill to swallow, but trust me when I say: it will be worth every extra minute you have to wait. Sending you all of the love for your 2022 Ireland wedding day!
