We all dream of the day when we’ll meet that special person. The.one who we are destined to spend the rest of our lives. For Matt and Alicia, it was fate for the two to meet when they did. The team here at J&J Studios had the privilege of helping them celebrate their beautiful engagement. This Rutgers New Brunswick engagement shoot was epic. The stunning visuals we captured will be cherished forever by the couple.

My Soulmate, My Best Friend

Every couple’s journey is unique. However, Matt and Alcoa didn’t have your typical love story. The two were both introduced by mutual friends who thought that they would be great for each other. ”I don’t think it was exactly our time yet, ” Alicia recalled as she reflected on the day they first met. They ran into each other a year later at a friend’s party and talked all night. After exchanging numbers became inseparable. The soon to be wed couple describes themselves as best friends and soulmates. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Matt’s Sweet Proposal

Matt knew that he wanted Alicia to be his wife after they had been dating for a month. But he waited and officially popped the big question a year later during an intimate dinner at their favorite rooftop restaurant while watching the sunset. 

Matt had the engagement ring buried in a German chocolate cake. When she pushed the fork into the cake she instantly saw the ring and pulled it out. Alicia immediately said yes.

Rutgers New Brunswick Engagement Session

Alicia and Matt desired an outdoors-themed engagement spread so decided to shoot at Rutgers in New Brunswick. Rutgers is one of the most well-known universities in New Jersey. Rutger’s campus has a breathtaking landscape that’s perfect for an engagement shoot.

Love was in the air during this session. We captured several sweet intimate moments between the couple. They couldn’t keep their hands off of each other. The natural elements of the land such as the big oak tree, the brown hued leaves and the valley of rivers made for the perfect props during this autumn engagement shoot.

 We wanted to make this shoot fun and memorable for Aliciaand Matt. In one photo we had the couple sit in the small wooden bridge amongst the fallen leaves. During this engagement session, we aimed for variety which is why we shot the couple in several different locations on the campus. Some of our favorite shots are the pictures of Matt and Alicia walking hand in hand across a well constructed bridge. Also, the shot of the couple embracing each other by the riverfront is romantic. The results were phenomenal.
