The sun, the moon, the ocean, & the bay all in one NJ shore engagement featuring Sabrina & Michael at Island Beach State Park!
Why Rhinehart Photography?
Sabrina shares, “Our wedding planner recommended Rhinehart Photography, and after our initial meeting with Lisa, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with her. Between seeing the amazing photos on her website, hearing about her years of experience with The Palace, and feeling at ease with having Lisa as the photographer on the big day, the decision was easy.”
She continues, “She checked off all the boxes we wanted from a wedding photographer– someone to capture beautiful moments we want to remember forever (for the engagement shoot and wedding day), someone who knows the best spots of The Palace to capture them, and someone who will guide us through our wedding day with ease. I am confident that Lisa’s strength of creating a fun, easy-going environment will make all of the photo-taking a breeze!”
Why the NJ Shore?
Sabrina smiles, “Whether it’s Caribbean vacations or trips to the Jersey Shore, we are definitely beach lovers. Michael’s family has always spent a week each summer at the Shore and I joined in on these trips the first summer we were together (9 years ago). He and I love spending time hanging in our beach chairs, listening to some music, and getting competitive in our paddle ball games. At night we like to sit on the sand to watch the sunset or star gaze. It’s our happy place and that’s why it was so fitting to take our engagement photos there!”
Meet Sabrina & Michael
Michael shares, “With Sabrina, everything, even from the beginning, just felt natural. She became my best friend before anything else, and now, after all these years, she is so much more. Every day I learn to love and appreciate her more and more. There is no one else in this world I’d rather do this life thing with, and I look forward to every second of it.”
Sabrina adds, “I met Michael in high school right before my 17th birthday. He was the first person to text me at midnight on my birthday and we’ve texted every day since! I love how he makes me laugh every day. He knows me better than I know myself. I know I can rely on him for anything and he supports me in everything I do. I love growing with him both as an individual and as a couple. Making each other smile every day for the rest of our lives is something I am totally looking forward to.”
Sabrina smiles, “The sky was AMAZING! Island Beach State Park gave us a variety of scenery between the dunes, the beach, and the bay side. It was so much fun exploring allof those different spots together!”
She adds, “We loved how Lisa was great with getting us to the bay side when the sun was setting and didn’t want us to miss it. Watching the sunset by the bay was probably my favorite part of the night, but I’ll never stop loving the feeling of walking in the sand and having my feet in the ocean water.”
Enjoying Eachother’s Company
Michael laughs, “Being photographed is way outside my comfort zone so I appreciated all of Lisa’s help! I just ended up having a goofy, fun time with my best friend. I hope that comes across in the shoot.”
I must say, Michael was all in and up for anything and so was Sabrina so their photos totally showed that!
Sabrina continues, “The vibe for the NJ Shore engagement session was capturing us enjoying each other’s company at our favorite place. The timing of the shoot was perfect since we’ve always liked watching the sunset at the shore.”
End of the Night
While we explored different places along Island Beach State Park, we kept finding more beauty everywhere we went! We followed the moon to this inreal little valley filled with like desert plants, it was so beautiful untill, we started to itch, literally. We had been joined by some unwanted guests, mosquitoes!
Sabrina laughs, “I’m sure the moon photo looks beautiful, but those dumb mosquitoes lol!”
We only stayed for like a minute, so luckily this photo turned out great! The moon was unreal!
