New Jersey Engagement Session - Jaclynn & Radley

I thought I knew what to expect when I arrived at Jaclynn’s house last Friday. This was to be our final meeting to go through the details for their May wedding and we were also going to shoot an engagement session. Nothing too out of the ordinary for me. But, wait. Something out of the ordinary was about to happen.

I was invited to dinner. :)

That’s right. When I got there, I was greeted by not only Jaclynn and Radley, but pretty much the whole family. On both sides! And their dog too! Radley was in town from his home state of North Carolina and he brought his mother with him. (His mother, who just happens to make the best Southern-style sweet tea ever!) And I knew as soon as I was handed a glass of that tea and invited to sit down for lunch that this day was pretty special.

Jaclynn and Radley, I’m just so honored to have shared such a great meal and conversation with your family. It was absolutely inspiring to see the love between the two of you also so evident in the love of your family. I could just feel it through and through. Thank you so much for sharing that with me!

Now, on to the images. I just had to snap a few of the food we ate! We started with this amazing grilled shrimp caesar salad …

And we each enjoyed a nice tall glass of sweet tea while Jaclynn’s sweet dog Lily watched on … :)

They also had Cheerwine, which is a very well-known drink in the Carolinas, where Radley is from. I took a picture, but I’m sad that I didn’t try it! (Maybe it will make an appearance at the wedding?!) Then, we finished up with delicious strawberries drizzled over angelfood cake! Wow, I’m such a lucky photographer to have clients like these!

After we finished up our conversation about all the details of their wedding day, we moved on to some engagement pictures! And Jaclynn and Radley, you two are gorgeous!

This red barn is in Jaclynn’s parents’ back yard. It’s so beautiful! (Just like they are!)

So sweet!

After a few photos near the house, we headed over to the Lebanon, NJ, train station where there are a bunch of old train cars just sitting on the tracks. This was a fantastic place for an engagement session!

They’re both just so much fun! I’m so, so, so excited for the wedding.

This is one of my favorites. Love the emotion in this kiss. Hot!

Then, we spotted a weeping willow tree and I knew this was the perfect time to get some glowy, springy photos! Oh, and the weather was absolutely perfect.

So fierce.

Thank you, thank you again, Jaclynn and Radley for being such a great couple to work with! I cannot wait until the wedding!
