Kathryn & Alex’s Manasquan beach engagement session was so much fun! These two are the cutest together and such a joy to photograph! I love when couples have fun with their session and are down for all the poses I throw their way! We even got the most beautiful pastel sunset at the end of their session! (One of my favorite things about beach sessions!) I am so excited to share my many, many favorites from this engagement session! But first, you know we have to talk about Kathryn & Alex’s love story!
I asked Kathryn & Alex to share with me one thing they love about each other. Kathryn said, “I love his personality and how his smile and laugh can light up a room! He also is very supportive of me and all that I want to do in life. Nothing feels impossible with him by my side. :)” Alex said, “I love everything about Kathryn! She really is my best friend and I cant imagine my life without her in it.”
Kathryn & Alex grew up in the same town together in Scotch Plains, NJ. As Kathryn tells it, “We met in High School and dated our sophomore year. At the time, it was just young love and we both had a lot of ambition for our futures which included leaving jersey and getting the full college experience, both educational and fun ;)! We had a lot of the same friends from high school so always stayed in touch and after we graduated we reconnected and have been together ever since!”
They love to spend date nights going out for sushi (or any dinner) with drinks! Kathryn told me “we love 1:1 time over a glass of wine and good food.”
Alex proposed to Kathryn in December 2021 at Batello in Jersey City. Kathryn told me “it was a super special day and we were lucky to have a photographer there to capture the moment! I will forever cherish those memories!” When I asked her her favorite thing about being engaged, she said, “Celebrating with our families has been fun! It’s also nice that our engagement is long so we can enjoy the time rather than be stressed with all the planning at once.”
Kathryn & Alex, you two are so much fun! Your laughs are absolutely contagious, and I loved getting to photograph you two! I can’t wait to do it again for your wedding day at Florentine Gardens next year! Until then enjoy every minute of being fiances! Sending you guys the biggest hug and all my love! xoxo
