Willowwood Arboretum Engagement Session | Molly & Tim

A couple walks through a lilac field holding hands and laughing at Willowwood Arboretum in NJ.


Molly and Tim’s Willowwood Arboretum engagement session was full of dreamy springtime perfection! There were so many gorgeous areas to take photos everywhere we turned! I especially couldn’t get enough of the lush blooming lilacs, the secret-garden-esque fences, and the patch of bamboo we found hidden in the woods! This location is a GEM filled with so much goodness!

Not to mention, getting to explore it with an incredible couple like Molly & Tim made this session SO much fun! The love and joy they share is simply contagious. I loved that these two were totally up for any and every crazy idea that popped into my head, including all the lifts, running through the gardens, and going off the trails into the woods! We had a BLAST exploring the gorgeous arboretum together! : )

Let me tell you a little more about Molly & Tim and their story!!


Molly and Tim first met when they were set up on a blind date by Tim’s mom and Molly’s aunt. They went on their first date at Millie’s in Morristown back in February of 2015 and have been going on dates ever since! Molly says, “Over the years we have become each other’s best friends, cooking partners, walking/talking buddies, community service teammates, church goers, prayer warriors, uplifting motivators and forever companions. Our relationship has blossomed into a beautiful love story that focuses on God, giving to others and unconditionally loving each other.” These two and their love are so inspiring!

Want to hear about how Tim popped the question?! As Molly tells it, “Our proposal was absolutely magical! Tim surprised me with a visit to Highlands Castle in Bolton Landing, NY. While at the castle, Tim sent me on a scavenger hunt around the castle to find him waiting outside on the stone terrace overlooking Lake George. What a beautiful moment we both will never forget!”

​When I asked these two what they love about each other, Molly said, “I love Tim’s genuine, giving heart. He is always thinking about how he can help others through his actions and his words. Tim encourages others to become the very best versions of themselves. This is one of his best qualities!!!” And Tim said, “I love Molly’s patience, understanding and ability to meet people where they are at in life. And smile!”


Molly & Tim – thank you guys for being so sweet, loving, and joyful! I had the best time taking your engagement photos! I love you guys and cannot wait to celebrate your wedding day with you this fall!!! Enjoy the rest of your time as fiances!! xoxo
