Liberty State Park, NJ: Lisa & John's Engagement Session

It was a cold blustery day in February when John took Lisa out for brunch in Jersey City. After a delicious meal, John suggested a walk in nearby Liberty State Park. It was an interesting choice considering the frigid temperatures and the fact that it had just begun to snow. But Lisa, with her mellow, laid-back personality, didn’t think much of it and happily agreed to go along for the stroll. It was the perfect location for them - taking in the view of Lisa’s home of New York City from John’s home of New Jersey.

They enjoyed the breathtaking view of lower Manhattan for a while until even that incredible sight could no longer distract Lisa from the biting cold. She suggested to John that they return to the car. That is, until she turned around and everything changed. Suddenly, the weather took a backseat.  John was getting down on one knee, asking her to marry him. 

That night they celebrated their engagement with Lisa’s entire family. And this spring, when Liberty State Park finally thawed, Lisa and John returned so they could take their engagement photos in a place that so perfectly represents their upcoming union and will forever hold a special place in their hearts.
