Barnegat Lighthouse is where Andrew proposed to Kristin, so of course, we did their engagement session at this special location! Every year Kristen and Andrew do the Lighthouse Challenge of NJ, which requires driving to all the different lighthouses during a specific weekend. The Barnegat Lighthouse is their favorite lighthouse. When Andrew popped the question at the top, Kristin couldn’t believe it and asked him a gazillion times if he was sure. The cutest!
What is something that the two of you are most excited about for your wedding day?
“Aside from the food and drinks, just having our friends and family all together…..and it actually happening (fingers crossed).”
Kristen wore a navy floral wrap dress. She had on cute nude heels to complement the dress. Andrew wore tan dress pants and a white button-down shirt, and he rolled up the sleeves to his elbows. We love that their outfits were so nicely coordinated!!
We photographed on the different trails around the Lighthouse, looking and finding the best lighting scenarios to capture Kristen and Andrew in. It was the perfect day out, and the sun just peaked in behind the overcast of clouds.
What do you like to do together? What does your favorite date night look like?
“The first time Andrew and I hung out (as friends) one on one, we did a jigsaw puzzle together, and we have been doing them ever since. Our favorite date night would be spending the night in LBI, going out to dinner and eating outside, playing mini-golf, and going to the arcade.”
We headed to the beach right before sunset to photograph them on the beach and along the shoreline. Capturing romantic and silly portraits, we ended the session in the ocean, where our couple shared kisses in the surf.
Kristin and Andrew, congratulations on your engagement! Thank you for choosing Limelight Entertainment to photograph your engagement session. We can’t wait for the wedding day!!
