New York and New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre adores working beside bridal clients to plan their dream engagement session. From overlooking the Hudson at the Battery, to viewing the sunset glittering over the waters at Cape May Beach, there are so many beautiful destinations between New York and New Jersey to choose from.

As a wedding photographer, it is upmost important to make that engagement session so special to your and your fiancé. We could spend all day recommend beautiful venues, yet if it does speak to you and your love story, then uhhh, that’s not so special.

Your session is designed to compliment your love story. Your session is designed to curate your wedding day and we are so thrilled to begin planning those very steps!

Here are just a few tips to get us started on creating that EPIC, thoughtfully curated, and effortless engagement session preserving these moments to last a lifetime.

With love and joy,

Michelle

Plan Your Session Aesthetic and Vibe

While working beside New York and New Jersey bridal clients, it is always my goal and best intention to design a romantic engagement session that best compliments the clients wedding and provides a great introduction to the wedding day. Engagement session photographs (will most likely) be printed and utilized for Save the Dates. With that being said and while planning your session and all session details, you want to think about the vision of your day and creating that chic, jaw-dropping and romantic engagement session for you and your fiancé.

Execute That Aesthetic

Styling is key while coming to sessions. It is essential to first create a ‘vision board’ together and once you have a vision finalized, then move forward with nailing down the details.

Book Your Venue(s)

Once your engagement session vision is accomplished, execute on the first big step, choosing your dream engagement session venue! Whether this be at a (what may seem like) a public location or private, it’s always best to inquire with the venue and while photograph at their property to see if a permit fee is required to photograph at their property for the time planned. If a permit fee is required, applications are required to be completed month(s) prior to the session.

Outsource the Talent & Book Vendor Team(s)

If your vision includes talent such as outfit changes and accessories, which may include on-location styling, hair, makeup, furniture rentals (example: champagne tower and glasses), vehicles (antique vehicles), or furniture, it would be ideal to then inquire with vendors one at a time and book your vendors for your session.

Invite a Friend

Yes, you read that correctly! Invite a friend to your New Jersey engagement session. Request for a family member and/or friend to assist the day of the session. Maybe you have a puppy that you’d like to incorporate? Mom or a friend will be there to assist with all the details. Like the wedding day sessions move pretty fast, especially if there are several locations. I recommend to request for your Mom, maid-of-honor (or bestie) to tag along, take some behind the scenes for your social media, assist with carrying your bag, and can assist with any additional details, like possibly care for your pup if you plan on incorporating your fur baby!

After their romantic proposal, we celebrated the couple’s at Conservatory Garden in Central Park only leading to future surprises for Jessica!

Returning home to their apartment, Pishoy had hair and makeup awaiting for Jessica. Additionally, a beautiful gown and accessories by Chanel were also ready for her and a handsome suit for him to wear. Once hair and makeup was complete, the couple continued to celebrate their proposal with their session.
