Erica + Nick • Willowwood Arboretum Engagement


I was excited to meet Erica and Nick for their engagement session at Willowwood Arboretum on one of the last warm autumn evenings. The arboretum was the perfect location for their session, with its stunning array of trees and foliage still in full display. With the sun setting in the distance, we knew we were in for a spectacular evening of shooting.

Erica and Nick were an absolute joy to work with. They were easy-going, fun-loving, and so obviously in love. As we wandered through the arboretum, I couldn't help but notice how natural they were in front of the camera. Every shot was filled with joy and happiness, and it was clear that they were meant to be together.
The colors of the trees were absolutely breathtaking, with oranges, yellows, and reds all around us. The warm autumn light was the perfect complement to the setting.

As we moved through the arboretum, we found so many beautiful spots to take photos. 
The sunset was the perfect finale to the session. 

How They Met
"We first met working as servers at a Friendly's Ice Cream restaurant in college 8 years ago.
On our first date we went to Sunrise Mountain in Sandyston, NJ to watch the sunset."

The Proposal
"Our proposal took place on a reservation near our home. We went on a walk to watch the sunset one Friday night after work. Nick asked me to sit on a bench that overlooked the lake and popped the question!"

Erica and Nick enjoy getting sushi take outs and watching movies on a Friday night, quiet Sunday morning coffee dates and spending time outside when the weather is nice.

Erica loves Nick's contagious energy and loving heart.
Nick loves Erica's smile and laugh.

Congratulations, Erica & Nick!
I cannot wait to capture your wedding day this October!
