Happy September! I couldn’t be more excited to share this SWEET session with! (Pun intended here!) Karen and Billy chose to have their engagement photos taken at Coney Island in New York! We started our session off at a cute candy store and then headed towards the boardwalk where we took advantage of the bright colors and amusements in the background. Karen wore a stylish off the shoulder top with jeans and heels and Billy sported a casual t-shirt and jeans look. We had a lot of fun just chatting and walking around and snapping photos – I loved incorporating the different candies Karen picked up, too! Read below to learn more about Karen and Billy’s love story 🙂

How did you two meet?
We met in Atlantic City, I was celebrating my girlfriend Elaina’s birthday & we were meeting up with her boyfriend at the time, now husband & his friends and that was the first time we met each other. My best friend Effie who is my Matron of Honor said that night that I was going to marry him.

What are you most excited about for your wedding? (Dances, speeches, vows, party etc).
I’m excited to see Billy’s expressions when he sees me for the first time walking down the aisle. We can’t wait to see how everything has come together after all the planning we did this past year for the wedding.

What is your favorite memory together?
When I asked Billy his favorite memory of me he said when I said yes to marrying him, & I would have to agree. Another great memory we have is when he introduced me to his niece on a skiing trip and she knocked me down on the slope. I took it like a champ and laughed it off and his family knew I was a keeper.
What’s one thing that drew you to your significant other?
I was drawn to his kind heart and the way I know he will always take care of me. He was drawn to my patience and kindness to others.
