Aimee + Eric | A New Jersey Engagement Session

I spent a morning last week with Aimee and Eric at Lambert Castle in Paterson, NJ. The castle might seem a place reserved only for fairy-tale wedding dress photos (I’ve done a number of formal portraits of brides and grooms here), but I’ve been finding it to be a great spot for engagement sessions as well. Not only does it offer a very cool building (after all, it is a castle!) but also a beautiful park area that adds another dimension to photos.

I often tell my couples to simply talk amongst themselves as I’m photographing them. When I checked back in with Aimee and Eric after shooting these images at a distance, they told me they were reminiscing about their love story. (Aw!) They met when they were 15 and although they say they tried to go their separate ways a few times through high school and college, they always kept coming back to each other. Aimee said to me, “We never thought we’d really end up together, and now look at us!” Yes, look at them! In many of their images they do look to be inseparable. :)

They also brought along their 8-month old dog, Jax, who was such a cutie. I was glad to get a few images of him even if he did just want to play the whole time! And I guess he stole the show a bit since he even got his own individual portrait.


Like I said, there’s a great park setting, and then check out the Castle!


And finally, I love the feeling in this image. These two have a chemistry that is so awesome!25

Thanks again you two for a great session. I loved hanging out with you and I can’t wait for your wedding in October!
