Alyssa and Jeff first met in Ms. Sorrentino’s freshman year chemistry class. Jeff was immediately smitten, but Alyssa kept him at arm’s length for three years! Eventually she relented, and they started dating senior year of high school.
After graduation, Jeff moved up to Massachusetts for college while Alyssa stuck around New Jersey. Four long years of NJ Transit, Newark and New York Penn Stations, Bolt Bus, and the occasional Amtrak later, Jeff moved down to Princeton, New Jersey for graduate school while Alyssa started medical school at Rutger’s.
Alyssa grew up spending her summers down in Ortley Beach, New Jersey so Jeff decided when it was time to pop the question, he knew exactly where he would ask her. There on the beach , Jeff asked Alyssa to marry him.
I was so excited to meet this sweet couple and to be the one to photograph their beautiful engagement session and wedding. They chose to do their engagement session in Ortley Beach right where Jeff proposed! One of the things that I enjoyed the most on their session was the strong bond between them which made it super easy to capture their love!
