Amanda + Mike | Beach Engagement Session

I’m pretty sure as soon as I saw Amanda, I was stunned into silence. Here I was, in my shirt with a siracha stain from the dinner I scarfed down 5 minutes prior, in front of a girl that could absolutely be a model. Not only was Amanda gorgeous (and hey, so were you Mike) but Mike and Amanda were so fun and kind! They both live in the city and will have their wedding in one of my favorite places, the Catskills, but they knew exactly where they wanted their engagement to be - in the beach town where Mike grew up.

I use the word “town” very loosely. Rockaway Park is actually located in Queens, but you would never know it when wandering through! It seems like a secluded, quiet beach town and is actually on just the edge of one of the biggest cities in the world.

We wandered around the beach, explored old bunkers and in general had an absolutely incredible time. The magic between these two was so real and photographing them was inspiring - is it wedding time yet??
