Hello everyone! What a busy and fantastic summer! I couldn't wait to share these photos from Robyn and Mark's fun New Jersey Botanical Garden engagement photographer session filled with sun, laughs, romance, flowers and bloom...well you named it, we got it. When I first drove to New Jersey to meet Robyn and Mark, (Cafe Bene...yum!!) I instantly was drawn to how they both interacted with one another. They really were in sync and you can definitely tell they love and care for one another. As a wedding photographer, that gets me sold each and every time. It doesn't hurt that they got my quirky personality! For their engagement session, these two Maryland resident chose the NJ Botanical Garden, and it was just perfect. We spent a lot of time laughing and sharing stories. What's their story? They both met through a mutual friend (shout out to Kelly!) years before, and started a long distance relationship with Robyn living in Texas and Mark moving to Maryland. I can't say it enough, but when you love someone, you make the long distance relationship work! Robyn eventually moved to Maryland, and they both knew they found "The One" when they realized they wanted to live with one another and that this person is who they want to spend the rest of their lives with.
Fast forward to their proposal, Mark finally asked Robyn to marry her the day of her birthday. Robyn knew what her present was....a new purse! They were off to breakfast, but she asked if she can open her new present. Robyn also loves scratch offs lottery tickets. I mean, who doesn't love scratch off tickets!!?!? That's why we get along. When Robyn scratched off 3 matching diamond ring symbols, she was excited to win either $20 or a grand prize. Mark encouraged her to find out what the winning prize was, and it said "Will You Mary Me."
That's definitely the best scratch off tickets ever!!! Mark definitely deserves a lot of congratulations for this proposal. He knew Robyn wouldn't want a public proposal so he stated that "all my ideas went out the window and had to think of something clever!" Well this definitely is one of the best proposal stories I've heard! I really can't wait to capture their wedding and big congratulations to the happy couple. Until the fall for their New Jersey wedding so stay tuned for their wedding photos!!!
