An Island Beach State Park Engagement Session

Tiffany & Brian’s Island Beach State Park engagement session was so dreamy! We met up with them at golden hour and strolled through the park, located at the South end of Seaside Park, NJ. The state park is such a great engagement session location in New Jersey because of the natural backdrops and variety of locations. The park offers over 10 miles of white sand beaches, dunes, maritime forests, and tidal marshes, making it a popular destination for adventurers. For this couple’s engagement session, we started on a shell trail, making our way to the boardwalk beach access. Along the waterline, the golden light just reached us, lighting up the sky with a pastel blue. Tiffany & Brian strolled along the water’s edge and got their feet wet in the warm Autumn water.

After, we made our way over to the bay where a boardwalk deck forms a lookout point with the perfect view of the sunset. The vibrant colors were gorgeous, and made the photos even more romantic and magical. We absolutely loved how these portraits turned out! It was so much fun working with this sweet couple. We’re so excited for their wedding later this year. Scroll to see the magic!
