Kari + Dave • Aviation Engagement Session • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

This must have been one of the coolest sessions I have ever done! 

When Dave mentioned he was a pilot I knew I wanted to incorporate that into their engagement session. Because when planes are involved, you know it is going to be extra fun!

I met with Kari and Dave at The Essex County Airport where Dave is a pilot and an instructor. 
He was able to wheel out one of the planes he flies for a few shots. And we got to sit in it, too! 

Wait till you find out how Dave proposed! Eek! The coolest and not surprising, really!!!

Part two of their shoot took place by the lake since they really enjoy fishing, boating and kayaking in their free time.
I had so much fun with these two! They would laugh the whole time, really enjoying each other's company, and not taking things too seriously 😉


"They say you can't buy love but a membership to Match brought us together. ;)"


"We met at The Windlass on Lake Hopatcong. Dave got very lost getting there and asked Kari how to get there but she is very directionally impaired. We ordered the same thing and Kari forgot to cheer to our first date and drank before. We then spent the rest of the weekend hanging out and getting to know each other. Dave took Kari on her first motorcycle ride, to Hawks Nest, then on a plane ride!"


"Dave decided to surprise Kari and told her that they were going to fly to a restaurant to meet with friends. While flying around and looking at the fall scenery out the window Dave popped the question! They then landed and met up with their parents for a celebratory dinner."

Kari loves how Dave always makes her laugh. They can always make a good time out of anything they are doing. He understands and supports her through good and bad. He feels like home and is truly her soul mate.

Dave loves Kari's eyes, smile and her laugh. He loves how she works hard at her job and how she is compassionate towards all her patients. She is his rock, giving him confidence through this journey called life.



Congratulations, Kari + Dave! I cannot wait to celebrate with you in just a few days!
