For ALL Couples Getting Married

This row boat engagement session captured by Monika De Myer Photography is as romantic as they come. Think The Notebook meets The Great Gatsby meets storybook perfection all wrapped up with pretty details worth swooning over for the rest of the week. Just check out that gorgeous garland from Jardiniere Fine Flowers that decorated the back of the boat and the bride-to-be’s gorgeous sequin romper! Not to mention, this engagement not only takes us on a sweet little boat ride, but ends with a darling styled session featuring vintage elements, lace and macarons to tie the entire engagement shoot together. See it all the Pinterest-worthy details below.

From Monika De Myer Photography…I met Janine and Chris through Chris’ sister, Marissa whose engagement session I shot just last year. I was beyond excited when Janine reached out to me and asked if I would like to shoot their engagement session as well as their wedding. She mentioned their wedding theme would be inspired by The Great Gatsby. My creative juices started to flow immediately and I had so many ideas to make their session extra fun and romantic, at the same time. On the day of the shoot we met at a New Jersey lakeside where a canoe was waiting for us. Jardiniere Fine Flowers made a beautiful garland to decorate the boat. We set one of the nearby picnic tables for the second part of the shoot. Lacey table cloth, bird cage, candles, pearls, delicious macaroons, and flowers, flowers, flowers! The couple dressed the part! I loved Janine’s sequin romper accessorized with pearls and Chris’ dapper suspenders + bowtie look! They looked absolutely stunning! That afternoon could not have possibly been more perfect! And the chemistry between the two of them? Undeniable! It was so obvious to me how much they love each other, and how much fun they have together.
