Alina & Mohammad’s engagement session was a DREAM! I loved photographing these two in their gorgeous, light-filled Jersey City apartment, and the park across the street! Anytime furbabies get to take part in a session, I am PUMPED! 🙂 Alina & Mohammad’s sweet French Bulldog, Louie, was so adorable, and was a star of the show for their session! In home sessions are so much fun and showcase so much personality – I love them!! As an added bonus, Alina & Mohammad got engaged at home in their old apartment, so it was an extra meaningful location choice for their engagement shoot! Before we dive into all these fun photos, let me tell you a little more about these two and their love story!
Alina & Mohammad met on Bumble. As Alina says, “A modern love story 🙂 We are both pretty low key, like basketball and good food.” When I asked about their typical date nights Alina said, “These days we both work a lot and quarantine at home so our dates are done on the couch with our dog, Louie, who usually snores away while we are watching reruns of Friends.”
Mohammad proposed to Alina at home on the couch while they were in sweats, and before he had a ring! Later Mohammad got a ring, talked to Alina’s dad, and set up a sweet proposal in their old apartment complete with candles and roses. I love at home proposals! It’s so special to have that memory in a place that’s meaningful and special!
Alina & Mohammad, thank you both so much for having capture the memories of this special season of your lives! I loved spending the evening with you two (and Louie, of course!!) and had the best time photographing you in your beautiful home! Thank you for being so much fun! Sending you guys the biggest hug!! xoxo
