Sandy Beach. Cool Breeze. Calm Waves. The perfect setting for a beach engagement session in Bay Head, NJ.
Jt and Rory’s whole relationship has been centered around the beach. From meeting at a bar they both worked at by the beach to taking several vacations along the shore, and even living minutes from it, these two are no stranger to the sand. They are even having their ceremony on the beach!
So it was the perfect backdrop for their engagement session as well.
I was not complaining at all by their choice of locations. I love the beach but really only go once throughout a year. So I was soaking up every ounce of the salty air! I have to say, sunsets on the beach may be my new favorite thing.
Sadly, We seriously did not have enough time for their session! Only two blocks from the beach was the bay side of Bay Head. I think I could have done an entire session just there. Then, as the sun set lower behind the trees, we headed over to the beach to end the session. Beautiful blues filled the sky and complemented their outfits perfectly!
Seriously, wait till you see them!
We ended the night with a little fun on their bikes. It was a perfect representation of the two of them and their relationship! They are constantly riding around along the beach and stopping at different places to eat. So having them at the session was a must! Can all engagement sessions have cute bikes?
Jt and Rory are seriously the best.
So down to earth but always up for an adventure. I loved getting to know you two even more, and I’m so excited to be back in the area for your wedding at The Columns next year. It was also incredible getting a chance to meet your family! They were all so sweet, and I can’t wait to see them again at the wedding. Who knows, maybe I’ll run into them again at an ice cream shop before then 🙂 Let them know I say hi and that it was great to meet them! I am so excited to be on this journey with you two as you plan the perfect wedding on the sand. It will be a first to shoot a wedding with my shoes off, but I am so here for it!
Bring on all the salty air and sand between my toes!
Hopefull, there will be more beach sessions to share with you all until then, but there will at least be some again hitting my blog in September 2022.
Hope you can survive until then!
XOXO ~ Heather Marie
