From Engagement Photos to 2nd Anniversary Photos: Nomahegan Park, Cranford, NJ

Returning to Where They Were First Engaged: Samantha & Ryan

Toasting to Their Anniversary  

After a great engagement session a few years ago, we came back to their favorite spot to toast to their anniversary in the early morning.


I had the great pleasure of working with this couple a few years ago for their engagement photos, and now they came back to me to help toast their marriage a couple of years later back at Nomahegan Park. They have been together for years, showing me photos around their place from when they were kids in high school. It was so awesome to help them before, but now that they are just a couple years into marriage, they wanted to treat themselves to a gift. We decided that we should toast to it all at the same park, I’d bring the picnic basics, they’d bring the food. It sounded crazy to do this at sunrise while the park barely had anyone there, mainly joggers. We did make them jealous though as we got to enjoy the sunny, but maybe a little brisk, fall day.

Samantha told me she and Ryan had a wonderful time again, so I asked if they could share a few words with anyone considering me, but no words put in their mouths. Samantha was kind enough to write me an email with the following note (thanks!):

“We had a wonderful time taking anniversary photos with Anthony. He’s the only photographer I know who can get my husband to genuinely smile in pictures! I love that we not only have these amazing photos, but also a memorable story from a fun morning together. Anthony is dedicated to creating photos that not only look great but are meaningful to you as well. From the initial meeting, all the way to the final product Anthony is reliable and a great resource to capture the best pictures possible of your family.”
