Couples in Love

Jersey City Fall Couples Session, NJ | Caitlin & Derek

Their Session: Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ

This sesh right here was such a blast! Francesca reached out to me for a mentoring session, and we planned an amazing day dedicated to digging into everything she was working on right now in her business! Francesca knew she wanted a city vibe for the shoot portion of ther mentoring session, so we picked the perfect mix of nature and city – Liberty State Park! Francesca and I met up first at a cute little coffee shop, Lackawanna, in Jersey City that had an adorable secret garden space in the back – we spent a few hours diving into everything from camera settings to posing to strategy moving forward in her business! It was SO fun getting to hear about her life, business, and big dreams, and let me tell you, she is CRUSHING it right now! I can’t wait to see where she goes from here! xo

Caitlin and Derek are one of my amazing 2020/2021 couples who were so willing to model for this session! Cait was surprised Derek said yes to another shoot (we’ve already done 2 together now!), but he said it was a great excuse to get out of the house during COVID! I’m so glad they were up for modeling and helping Francesca learn the ins and outs of working with a real couple! They are such naturals and are so cute together, so they made this session super fun for us!!

Their Love Story

Caitlin and Derek met at Rutgers University in their first year – they lived in the same dorm! They started as close friends that year and then started dating the following summer! These two adventurous lovers escaped off to Japan and as they were hiking to the top of Mt. Fuji, Derek popped the big question! Although COVID has impacted their original wedding day plans, they’re staying so positive and adaptable to the situation. I can’t wait to celebrate with them again in 2021!

Francesca,

Thank you so much for choosing me as your mentor for this time in your business – it’s been such an amazing experience getting to know you better and guide you along this journey a bit more! You’re absolutely crushing it on your own, and I’m excited to see where you take your business from this point on. I know you’re going to do such big things, and this is only the beginning! Your drive and enthusiasm for photography and PEOPLE is such a huge superpower of yours. I love how you encourage and light the people around you up!

Caitlin & Derek,

I always feel so lucky every time I get you two in front of my camera! Thank you for taking the time to do something a little different during COVID and spending the evening with us. Hope you two had a fun little date night together! xo You’re the best!!
