A great location can really make your shoot. Dan and Abbey picked a lively, colorful location for their engagement shoot: the Jersey shore! Dan and Abbey feed so naturally off of the energy of the boardwalk, but they can be serious too. The intimate shots that Tyler Boye captured on the beach are some of my favorites. I hope you love Dan and Abbey’s Jersey shore engagement photos!
From the bride to be… Dan surprised me with a trip to Nassau, Bahamas in June 2014 for a combined twenty-third birthday present, college graduation gift, and our two year anniversary. I thought we were going out for a special dinner for our anniversary; when instead, he led me out to a romantic private dinner outside the resort in a private gazebo. I had absolutely NO idea he was going to propose. He asked me to stand up to take a picture, where he proposed as the sun was setting. He is such a romantic guy! It was the best moment of my life.
The first outfit for our engagement shoot was fun and flirty to match the carnival and ride theme. For our second look, Dan wore his Navy Whites. He was in active duty right out of high school and served as a military police officer for five years overseas. He was in Africa, Cuba, and Spain. He is currently serving in the Navy Reserves and is a police officer. For the third look, I wanted something blue to compliment our eyes. I also made him take his shirt off towards the end to show off his body for a more sexy-look. Dan loves fitness and the gym.
When it came to a location for our engagement photos, we knew there was only one choice. We LOVE the Jersey shore. We both grew up in South Jersey and had family vacations at Jersey beaches. It is my absolute favorite place to be, it is my serenity!
How beautiful are these silhouette shots with the lights of the boardwalk in the background!?! I love!!!
