Alex and Eric met in college at the University of South Carolina. After college, Eric moved to New York City, and Alex followed when she graduated a year later. Eric proposed to Alex last February on a snowy day in Rumson, NJ in front of peaceful views of the ocean and a snow-covered beach. Afterwards, they were greeted by all of their family and friends for a surprise engagement party at Eric’s parents’ house. Alex described it as “one of the best days of my life, hands down.”
I loved Alex’s idea to take their engagement photos in Battery Park, New York, near their apartment where she and Eric live with their excitable and loving pup named Jax. We met up at sunrise and ventured around the gorgeous park. There were endless beautiful backdrops to shoot with, from willow tree-covered paths, the Pier A Harbor House, and stunning views of the city’s buildings and the Statue of Liberty. I had a blast spending the morning with Alex and Eric (and of course Jax!).
