Jaimie & Dom’s Asbury Park beach and boardwalk engagement session was so much fun! I love the range of different backdrops Asbury Park provides with it’s iconic boardwalk, artistic murals, and beautiful beach! It’s such a fun location for an engagement session! These two are so cute together and a blast to photograph!! I can’t wait to share some of my many favorites! But first, let’s talk about their love story!
When I asked Jaimie & Dom to share with me one thing they love about each other, Jaimie said, “Dom is my rock, I love how supportive and patient he is with me.” And Dom said, “I love how caring Jaimie is!”
Jaimie and Dom have the cutest story! They first met back in high school. As Jaimie tells it, “He was a few grades older than me and we both played sports growing up. A few of my friends and I would actually play small pick up basketball games against him and his friends after school and that’s where I first met him! We started to get to know each other more and started dating when I was a sophomore and he was a senior. We have been together ever since (11 years)!!!”
Want to hear how Dom proposed?! Jaimie said, “We had been discussing going to The Edge in NYC for some time! Every year his mom likes to go see the tree in NYC for her birthday so he asked if before we met them there if I wanted to go to The Edge. When we were there we stood in line to take a picture at the point where all the beautiful views where, where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!!”
“He hired a photographer to capture the moment and then we continued to take beautiful pictures at the top of the edge and the many areas at the Hudson Yards. He then had planned a late lunch on the water in Hoboken where we met our families! After dinner, we went back to our apartment and our close friends were there to continue our celebration!!!” How perfect is that?! I love how thoughtful Dom was in proposing in such a beautiful place followed by so many celebrations!
Jaimie & Dom, thank you so much for such a fun evening in Asbury Park! You two are a blast! I had the best time taking your engagement photos, and cannot wait photograph your wedding day next summer at Park Chateau!! Until then soak up every minute of being fiances!! xoxo
