The Ocean City Fishing Pier is one of my favorite locations to shoot at. Whether it is sunset, sunrise, or 9am during bright sun and were 100% into beach season! Having a Beach session at the OC Fishing pier offers both the shade that we need AND the versatility of having beach and a being under a pier. This area is also in a great location at the end of the boardwalk, which doesn’t get that many tourists. There is also some amazing Johnsons Popcorn down this end, if you’re up for a snack after your session!

Photographing Friends:

Jackie is an amazing friend of mine and a photographer right here in South Jersey. She is the owner of Stinsman Photography which is a full service portrait studio in Burlington, NJ! Check her out if you’re in that area. I have photographed her family a few times now and I love seeing her boys grow up! They’re getting SO BIG! We had a ton of fun on the beach and they were so excited when it was time for some candids! (Because candids mean, running in the water with Mom and Dad!)

Memories:

These boys will not remember me, they won’t remember the camera, they won’t remember smiling for the lady 12ft away haha (yes, I am protecting my clients with social distancing and using my Nikon 70-200mm lens!). What they WILL remember though, is the fun time they had splashing in the waves with their Mom, and Dad throwing them up in the air. Years from now they will see these pictures and say “Wow! Look how strong Dad was, flipping me around like a feather! I want to be like him one day!” or “Look at how beautiful my Mom was, and she didn’t even care if she got her dress wet. She really loved being in the moment!” And then they will hug, and laugh and remember how much fun it was, and then they’ll do it again and again. It becomes a tradition. Taking family pictures on the beach, putting all of their attention into having fun and laughing. Those laughs, those are real genuine laughs. Let’s keep capturing that stuff. Because that is the stuff that keeps our hearts pure.

Beach Session at the OC Fishing Pier

Alison & Greg wanted to have an Ocean City, NJ Engagement Session . It was a beautiful August evening and we were able to get some beautiful sunshine as well as capture the most GORGEOUS sunset! These two love birds knew exactly what to do and needed little to zero coaching! Holding hands, soft kisses on the cheek, whispering funny little things to each other. It’s really a good example of pure romance. I love their life and how beautiful they are to one another.

Alison and Greg are true high school sweethearts and wanted to have romantic images captured. I’m pretty sure we accomplished that and I’m just so happy that it was such a fun session, they enjoyed themselves and were super comfortable showing their love for another! This is exactly how an engagement session should go!

Having an Ocean City, NJ Engagement Session is such a good idea, especially this pier and the Jetty! I’m so glad they chose this location and couldn’t be more excited and happy for them! Alison & Greg, Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for trusting me to capture these memories for you!!
