Couples in Love

Fall Picnic Engagement Session, NJ | Jeanelly & Bryant

Their Session: Willowwood Arboretum, Far Hills, NJ

Ahhh, these two were so fun to photograph and they put so much thought into all of the fun details for their picnic engagement session! Jeanelly went all out on this little picnic she planned, and it made for some of the cutest candid moments. She included their faves from classic Coca-Cola bottles to a charcuterie board and of course, champagne! What I loved about these two engaged babes was just how playful and joyful they were the entire evening. Plus, they’re daaang cute when they’re cracking up together! 🙂 Love seeing all of their love shine through!

Even when my couples come into a session feeling nervous or unsure if you’ll look awkward (everyone’s biggest worry!), I always reassure my couples that I’ve got them through it all! I’ll shake away those nerves and get you two cracking up and running around in no time! These two rocked their engagement session and I can’t wait to see them next year on their big day all glammed up at The Madison Hotel!

Their Love Story

Jeanelly and Bryant met at a bar at a mutual friend’s birthday! They’ve been loving this wild ride together ever since that night! Bryant proposed in such a sweet way during an exciting milestone in Jeanelly’s life! She said, “I just graduated law school (during coronavirus) so my graduation was canceled. My immediate family had a small gathering for me in my backyard to celebrate it (or so I thought) and he surprised me with a proposal! Everybody but me knew about it, so it was definitely a group effort. I was grateful to have been surrounded by only my closest friends and family. :)” How sweet is that?!

Jeanelly is super funny and outgoing and she balances Bryant’s down-to-earth nature! She loves that “Bryant is very loyal, caring, and selfless.” He makes her feel like there’s no other person meant for her. Bryant adores how “Jeanelly is so fun to be around and the only person that can make [him] laugh the way she does.” He says that “every minute traveling from PA to NJ is worth it” to be together!
