Amanda + Gaston • Asbury Park Engagement Session • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

Asbury Park is a lot of fun on any day! 
But especially when you add a cute couple in love, a bottle of rosé and a picnic on the beach!
I had so much fun hanging out with Amanda and Gaston during their engagement session, I loved getting to know them and their love story! 
And wow! Their chemistry is undeniable! They absolutely adore each other.


Amanda and Gaston met through friends during Labor Day weekend ten years ago.
They were both down the shore for a night of fun and dancing.


"While we have two days that our love story started we will stick with our reconnection. Gaston messaged me and asked to come down to Atlantic City. We walked in circles for hours talking and catching up on the past eight years as if no time had passed at all. Moments after we hugged and said goodbye we both turned back to look at each other at the exact same moment and smiled. We both knew right then.


"Gaston planned the most perfect proposal, all a surprise. He picked a restaurant called Limani in Westfield. He planned a four course menu, ordered a cake from our favorite bakery and bought flowers and decor. To top it all off he invited my family and his to meet for the first time after he popped the question. As we sat down Gaston seemed so nervous he started to tell me how much he loved me and then the moment came and he asked of course I said yes! After we hugged and kissed and had one sip of champagne, both our families popped out. I instantly burst into tears. We all had a beautiful dinner and celebrated our engagement together. It was a day I’ll never forget. I’m the luckiest girl. Oh did I forget to mention it was Valentine’s Day!


"Gaston and I love to cook, while he is the chef I am his very best assistant.
We love to travel together.
Fitness is a passion of ours. Amanda is preparing and training for the NYC half marathon.
House hunting has become a big hobby as we have been searching for our perfect dream home.

Amanda loves Gaston’s spice for life, he is always thinking of new ideas for dinner, for travel and for our day to day life. She values having a partner that embraces each day with joy and excitement.

Amanda makes Gaston smile everyday even when the day didn’t go so great. She makes him a better person and makes him want to explore the world, see new places and try new foods. He can’t imagine his life without her.

One word to describe them as a couple? Magical

Congratulations, Amanda & Gaston! 
I cannot wait to celebrate your big day at Bear Brook Valley next April!

Happy Father's Day!

"A dad is someone who wants to catch you when you fall 
but instead picks you up,  brushes you off, and lets you try again."

I could have never imagined or wished for a better father to my children than my husband!
My heart swells up with happiness seeing them together, and knowing how much joy it brings him!
Thank you for everything you do, My Love! We are so lucky to have you!

Happy Father's Day!
Let's celebrate all the wonderful dads today and every day! 

And a very Happy Father's Day to my amazing dad!
Kocham Cię, Tato!
