Janelle and Sean's wedding is coming up in a few short weeks so I thought it would be a good time to share some photos from their engagement shoot. They chose beautiful Lambertville, NJ for their photos and I think it worked out beautifully. It is such a quaint little town filled with antique shops and cafe's. It's the perfect place for a date or a shoot. It is so conveniently located on the Delaware River that we were able to wander over the bridge to New Hope for a few shots there too.
I love the muted colors of many of the buildings in Lambertville. They provide the perfect, soft backdrop for a simple portrait that doesn't distract from the subject.
I can tell that Janelle and Sean are the type of couple that put one another at ease and while they may seem shy at first, I can see that they totally connect and feel completely themselves around each other. What a great treasure to find in a partner.
Another reason I love Lambertville is for the towpath which runs right through it. It is a great, green backdrop with a country feel away from the, dare I say, "hustle" of the city. While Lambertville may be a quiet city, it still lends a downtown vibe and the towpath offers the exact opposite of that. I always love locations that can show a bit of diversity so that every image doesn't feel the same.
This lovely street in New Hope offers a lot of pretty and delicious restaurants and it also turned into a great spot for some evening sunset light.
Thanks for coming to my neck of the woods, guys! I had a great time with you and I'm anxiously awaiting May 28!
