Couple: Daniela & Matthew

With a short few months of engagement bliss and three months until their summer wedding at The Mill at Lakeside Manor

Daniela mentioned this session is their first couples portrait session of them together. So on the first Sunday of March on a chilly afternoon, Daniela and Matt met up with me at Spring Lake Park to start our adventures and create some memories.  

From the moment they stepped out of their car you could feel their warm personalities and could tell this was going to be a great session.  They immediately melted into each other with playfulness and giggles.  We had a good time and with a quick clothing change, we finished up on the nearby beach.   

How did you guys meet? 

We met at Rutgers University through mutual friends

How did the proposal happen?

Matt was thinking of the best way to propose and decided Christmas Day would be the day. He made sure both our families were present and tricked Dani into believing they had forgotten a gift in the car, giving the family enough time to set up Bruno Mars “Marry you” and letters that read out “Marry Me.”

As they walked back into the home, Matt got on one knee and, of course, Dani said yes. 

 What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day?

Being surrounded by our loved ones and celebrating together. Occasions like this bring our families together and remind us of how precious life is. 

What does Matt love about Daniela? 

I love Dani’s ambition, beauty, and genuine nature.

What does Daniela love about Matt? 

I love Matthew’s thoughtful, genuine nature and kind heart.
