Melissa + Chris • WoodsEdge Farm Engagement Session • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

This was such a fun session! 
Melissa and Chris chose to have their engagement photos taken at their wedding venue, WoodsEdge Farm in Stockton, New Jersey. It was such a great idea to scout the grounds and practice a few poses before their wedding day. And the best part? Well, we got to hang out with the llamas! 
This totally got me excited for their big day!
Here is their love story and a few of my favorites from their session. 

How they met

'We met in June of 2013 after initially meeting on Tinder. We first met in Manhattan’s East Village at The Cube, a sculpture located in Astor Place and a big landmark that made it easy to find each other. We were having such a great conversation that we walked in circles around the East Village, passing our destination several times.'

The proposal

'On January 19, 2019, we had planned to go into the city to go to the East Village and revisit some of our favorites bars and restaurants from when we were first dating. There was a state of emergency going into effect that night for an impending snowstorm but Chris was adamant that we would be back home before the weather turned so we stuck with our plan. He parked his car in a garage in the East Village and as we walked to the restaurant I thought we were going to, we passed the Cube at Astor Place where we first met and Chris proposed. I was in complete shock and immediately started sobbing happy tears. There were only a handful of people around because of the snowstorm but a stranger on the street shared a couple of photos she took when she realized what was happening. I remember it was so cold but we just kept walking in circles around the East Village like our first date but this time we were calling friends and family to share our good news. '

Melissa & Chris got married in October 2020 at WoodsEdge Farm. 
I cannot wait to share their beautiful wedding day!
