Beach engagement sessions will forever be my favorites! Shadai & Joel were supposed to get married in Florida this year on a beach in Saint Augustine. For obvious reasons, they had to change their wedding plans. Shadai & Joel still wanted romantic beach photos, so they decided to have a wedding styled engagement session in New Jersey! I spent a few weeks looking for a beach that wasn’t too crowded, and we found the perfect one! East Coast beaches aren’t always as magical as West coast beaches, but Long Beach Island did not disappoint!
Joel & Shadai are one of the most trendy and stylish couples you’ll ever meet. They are fun, creative, and, to be honest, FREAKIN GORGEOUS! I met Shadai in college while attending the same photography class together. We instantly became friends and have kept in contact over the years. She has actually worked for me on a few occasions, and she’s a budding photographer herself! I’m so excited to see what the future has in store for them both. I can’t wait to celebrate with them this summer!
