Cape May Engagement Session

It was the perfect spring weekend for Colleen and Matt’s Cape May Engagement Session.  Friday started out 85 and sunny until the storm front came through and brought some cooler weather. By Sunday, the sun was shining bright, the trees were budding, birds were singing, and people were riding their bikes. Finally, spring has arrived!

Scott and I were spending the weekend in Cape May soaking up the sunshine (and wine) and I was so thrilled that Colleen and Matt came up from Maryland to meet us there! When we talked about their engagement session initially they mentioned Charleston, South Carolina and I knew if we weren’t flying own there that Cape May would be the next best thing!

Instantly upon meeting them you could sense their connection and their love for one another. They made each other laugh, and when I asked them to hold each other close you could tell it just felt like home for them. There was so much laughter, smiles, dancing and hand holding as we strolled through the streets of Cape May. The victorian house were nearly meant for them as Colleen matched PERFECTLY with her dress! They strolled down the streets, sat on porches, and danced at Cape May’s Congress Hall. We ended the session on the beach as the sun set behind the town and it was a perfect full circle moment! Matt proposed on the beach in Ocean City so ending here seemed like the perfect end to our session!

This feels like one of the longest posts ever but they were just so cute and the locations were SO GOOD so we shot for a long long time! Enjoy!

Plus, the Blue Pig Tavern had the BEST food.
