Jessica first contacted us a couple months ago about a Long Beach engagement session for her and Tom. They planned a long engagement but wanted photos sooner so they could use them as part of their invitations for an engagement party and later, save the dates for their wedding. Also of note, they wanted to include their adorable dog, Lola!
Tom and Jess used to live in Long Beach, NY and really wanted to photograph there. They lost their apartment and a car to Hurricane Sandy, but they still love the city and consider it part of their life. With that in mind, we suggested meeting for a drink at the Allegria Hotel before starting their engagement session.
Tom and Jess love their dog, Lola! So they asked his sister to help out and bring her along for part of their Long Beach engagement session.
Many locals have fond memories of walking the Long Beach boardwalk, and Jess and Tom are certainly in that group. Since the boardwalk itself is a bit MIA right now, we used what’s left of it – the concrete supports – to create some memorable and time appropriate portraits for them.
One of our favorite things is hearing which photos are the couples’ favorites. Jess says this one is her favorite photo from the session.
