Michelle and Joe's 1950s Themed Engagement Session

While I may spend only 2 hours with a couple during their engagement session versus the 10+ hours that I spend with them on their wedding day, I really find that I get to KNOW a couple during their e-session. Michelle and Joe are one of those couples that know each other inside and out, and you can feel that immediately upon meeting them. And when you find out that they've been together for 11 years, it's not hard to understand why they're so comfortable together! They were sweet and thoughtful to each other throughout the entire shoot and it definitely helped that Joe knew exactly how to get Michelle to laugh.

The couple knew that they wanted their engagement photos to be unique but still match their timeless style. They opted to choose a 1950s themed shoot set at the Whippany Railway Museum in Whippany, NJ, where we had access to a vintage train car restored to it's original beauty. We photographed inside the vintage car and along the railroad tracks until the sun finally went down. We even got to use my 1950s Rolleiflex camera as a prop!

It was so much fun spending the day with Michelle and Joe and I can't wait until their wedding day in another 3 months!
