[Engagement] Toya & Ben – Jersey City, NJ

Engagement sessions are one of the most favorite parts of the relationship with our clients. Not only do we get to hang out for a few hours to take some nice photos, we get to learn so much about them, their families and their loves and passions in life. By the end of the sessions, we practically have a working biography of both the bride and groom, as well as any allergies their family members may have. In Ben’s case, we know one of his daughters has a peanut allergy, thanks to her sister’s insistence of having peanut butter for dinner not long ago. Hilarious, I know. We get all the awesome ones :). Toya and Ben are artistic folks who wanted to incorporate some urban sensibility into their engagement session. This called for a session in our nearby stomping grounds of Jersey City and Hoboken. Here’s a peak of their day spent with yours truly!

By the time you read this, we’ll be in rainy Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic :(. Forecast is gloomy all weekend, but it’s always a festive time when we’re around! See you guys on the flip side :).
