Heather + Mike | New Jersey Engagement | Jenkinson’s Boardwalk

Meet Heather and Mike, these two had me laughing to tears or …was it just the sea air?!. …NAH. ¬†They had so much fun together that I felt like I was the third wheel in their way, snapping pictures of them – telling them to go this way and go that way. Haha! I now know why Jenkinson’s Boardwalk was the perfect location … “We wanted a more relaxed setting for our pictures, and we LOVE the beach and thought the traditional pictures, for example people walking through vineyards or vine covered gables was just not us”.

They met through Heather’s sister and brother-in-law. “Mike was (and still is) best friends with my sister’s husband”, they introduced them and have been inseparable since.2016-08-30_00212016-08-30_0003

Heather and Mike got engaged on Christmas Eve, at Heather’s parent’s house. “He created a book of pictures of my dog Rosie and the last picture was of her and the ring and it said ” Can we be a family?”

“Always make each other laugh! Having fun with one another is one of the best parts about being in love. Always kiss each other goodnight, and never go to bed mad. Don’t give up on each other during the hard times. Relationships are not always rainbows and unicorns so its important not to lose sight of the bigger picture”.

“We loved taking pictures as if we were just hanging out having fun for the day”.
