Monmouth County NJ | Kate and Brian’s Engagement Session

You might remember Pam and Matt’s wedding last May? Well Matt’s brother Brian and his fiance Kate are getting married next March.

We asked them to think of a place that they like to go to come up with a theme for their engagement session, and they mentioned that they love to go biking at the Manasquan Reservoir. Well that’s our favorite place to go too. Steve and I have walked and ran around countless times and were extremely excited right away. The Manasquan Reservoir is a 5 mile path, and some of the spots that immediately came to our minds are not near any of the parking lots… so we asked them if they were up for a nice 5 mile walk and they were 🙂

We were chased away by park rangers after getting the first shot (we literally had 5 seconds to pose and shoot 😉 ) we had a bunch of deer stare at us and a few that ran across the trail right in front of us. We were even hissed at by geese.

The forecast all week had called for an 80% chance of rain for Saturday night, and we were all hoping it would happen. Well there was no rain unfortunately, but we still hit up Asbury Park after to get some night time photos.

Brian is an Army engineer and has been away since Sunday and will be gone for at least a week with no communication. Its amazing that the night before he left they were happy to spend with us.
