Kimberly and Nick are the most hard working and determined people I have probably met. They works 4 jobs between them and are pursuing a college degree (well, Kimberly is the one who is a student), planning their wedding and building their relationship. And not only they have the best work ethic they are also extremely down-to-earth and super easy to work with. I would ask them to sit on the wet ground…no problem! Climbs a tree…sure! Jump, run and pet a stray dog…. they did it all!!!! So after seeing what kind of people they are, I am so sure in there marriage success because I think selflessness and being easy-going is super important for any good long-lasting relationship! And I am 100% sure their wedding at Brigalias will become a memorable, meaningful celebration of their lives together! As for their engagement session, it was a dreary and slightly rainy evening…but only until I met Kimberly and Nick! These two people are full of life, energy and happiness! We were able to create these fun photos for Kimberly and Nick. We met at a local Lumberton park and a beautiful green background complimented these love birds really well! Kimberly wore an adorable teal knee-length chiffon dress and high heeled shoes. Nick decided to go with a simpler less noticeable outfit of jeans and a blue collared shirt. I found it to be a perfect combination for an engagement session outfit because Kimberly was the one who stood out so beautifully and Nick complimented his lady so well! Check out a few of there engagement photos here, but keep scrolling because there will be a change in the outfits that they said were more them :).
And as you can see for some photos I was only using natural light and for some I was even able to use off camera flash because the weather was so dreary that it was dark enough to get my camera setting to the right point. I love this kind of situation because it gives my couples a nice variety in their photos and depending on how they want to use them, they can go with either beautiful soft natural light or with a more contrasty photo with flash.
And then Kimberly and Nick changed into blue jeans and gray t-shirts :). And their sneakers matched!!! What they said is that it’s more them – relaxed, chill, active and ready for adventure :). My kind of people!
Kimberly mentioned that her sneakers were dirtier than Nicks…..but who seems it anyways when everyone is looking at this gorgeous engagement ring of hers ?! 🙂
And here is a stray dog….well, it wasn’t stray. The owners were there but really really far away so the dog just hung out with us for a while and really wanted to be in their engagement pictures.
And how gorgeous is this rose gold ring with lots of diamonds?!
And here is it – a fun and relaxed nj engagement photo session. I am so happy to be able to work with Kimberly and Nick!
God bless them!
