Jessica & Vince’s Morristown New Jersey engagement included so many iconic locations— from the Morristown Green to MacCulloch Hall, and even a stroll along Park Place. They wanted fun, authentic, images that are artistically executed and for me to capture their candid smiles and laughter. I love how these turned out! I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. 🙂
Why Rhinehart Photography?
Jessica shares, “Rhinehart Photography is a preferred vendor at our venue, The Palace at Somerset Park. When we began researching photographers, we were immediately taken with Lisa’s photos due to their authenticity, vivid colors, and creativity. We knew that Lisa would beautifully capture our wedding day.”
She continues, “One of Lisa’s greatest strengths as a photographer is how she goes to great lengths to learn about the couple she is photographing. By the time we met with Lisa, she knew so much about us – from the story of how we met to some of our private jokes and traditions. Lisa quickly showed her creativity and willingness to do anything to get a great shot. She thought of images that I could not have even imagined, like photographing our reflections in a puddle. I was skeptical of that one during the shoot but I love the photo!”
Vince adds, “Lisa not only made us feel comfortable and loose in front of the camera, but she also was able to capture our personalities.”
A Love that Will Last
As we walked around the Green, the center of Morristown New Jersey‘s downtown, so many people were charmed by Jessica & Vince. Particularly, this couple sitting on the bench watched them interact together and shared about their long marriage.
I love to tell a story, and thought that the passing of time, a black and white photo, and one bride and groom framing another worked perfectly!
Autumn Morristown New Jersey Engagement
The leaves were lovely in downtown Morristown and I was inspired by them in a few different ways– from a confetti effect by Jessica & Vince, to their colors in a puddle, to the veining and intricate details I could capture along with Jessica’s engagement ring. Keep scrolling to see all the creative ways I used the autumn leaves:
The Perfect Ring!
Jessica shares, “For my engagement ring, I wanted something simple and timeless. I think Vince delivered!”
Historic Morristown New Jersey Engagement
Jessica shares, “We knew we wanted to have our photo session in Morristown because it is where we first met, first lived together, and where we will live in our first house together. We have so many wonderful memories here and wanted to use a couple of different locations for our shoot. The gardens at the MacCulloch Hall Historical Museum were the first place that came to our minds. This is one of our favorite spots to visit and hang out in during warm weather because it is not only beautiful but also so quiet and peaceful.”
Morristown New Jersey is deep and layered, with quite a rich history dating back to George Washington. I thought the black and white brought such a classic and timeless vibe to this photo, and their smiles– these two practically glow in the dark:
Connecting Over Commonalities
Jessica smiles, “Vince is so caring, funny, and intellectually curious. We first connected over common interests in things like movies and podcasts (Vince says he first knew I was “cool” when he learned I listened to Conan O’Brien’s podcast, too). As it turns out we were compatible in other ways too and have so many of the same values and goals.”
These two are a perfect match! I was taken in by the gold color of this one – beautiful. 🙂
Photobombed by a Firetruck
Vince shares, “We felt we couldn’t have a Morristown-centric photoshoot without photos of the iconic and bustling Morristown Green.”
Jessica shares, “Vince and I were both laughing about the firetruck after the shoot. The driver got his comic timing right when he shouted “Congratulations!” from the firetruck across the street. He knew exactly why we were taking photos!”
While you’ve seen some of the historic aspects of Morristown, there are many modern aspects to downtown. When the firetruck passed by, I did some quick thinking and slowed my shutter down to intensify its movement and color.
In the Still of the Night
Vince shares, “The tunnel shot in the garden shows how Lisa improvises and adapts to her subjects and setting. This photo makes both the process and end-result feel all the more personal.”
