Rita and Mike’s LBI Engagement Photos

To say Rita, Mike and I hit it off right away is an understatement. They’re big NY Mets fans and while that usually works against me, it worked for me in this case! I think our initial conversation was 80% Mets talk, and 20% wedding talk. Although one of the first things they spoke about was LBI engagement photos.

Rita and Mike chose LBI engagement photos because it is a special place to both of them. They often spent their days playing in the waves and Mike proposed to Rita on the beach. Barnegat Lighthouse made a perfect backdrop for their photos.

Like most of my clients, Rita and Mike were so natural in front of the camera. I simply asked them to have a moment, and I stood back and captured their love. It was quite simple, actually. Just look at the photos and you can see how much they’re in love with each other. I loved the way Rita just melted into Mike’s arms.

I wanted to incorporate the water and jetties into their LBI Engagement Photos, which wasn’t always an easy task. For some shots I had to lay on the rocks with my camera an inch from the water…but hell it’s insured and anything for the shot…right?

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I loved taking them! And I can’t wait for their Collingwood Grand Ballroom wedding day!!! LGM!!!
