Bicentennial Park Engagement :: Gina and Charles

This session in East Brunswick, New Jersey at Bicentennial Park was extra special for me; not only did I LOVE seeing how much fun Gina and Charles had together (they played on the swings…squeal!!),
but I was able to capture their playfulness at the very same park I went to daily as a child!

Swinging on the swings, roaming paths through woods, and hanging out lakeside at sunset on a perfect Jersey summer day; how could we not have a blast?!  Roaming Bicentennial Park with Gina and Charles brought back so many happy memories from my childhood, and having the chance to snap shots of not just their playful side, but how very much in love Gina and Charles are, left me with lots of warm fuzzies.  What helped make this shoot so great (besides this totally awesome couple and location), was how relaxed their attire was for the day.  Gina was super comfy in her LuLaRoe Classic T, jeans from Forever 21, and a pair of Tieks (her absolute favorite!), while Charles wore a Guess shirt, a pair of Levi jeans, and super snazzy blue Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.

Read on for Gina and Charles’s super, super sweet proposal (trust me, you want to!) and more…

February 2012: Gina was house sitting and dog sitting for her cousin that had just gotten married. Gina’s friend was dating Charles’s good friend at the time and insisted that Charles come to the apartment and meet Gina. Charles conveniently lived walking distance from the apartment. If it wasn’t for Lily the 3 pound Yorkie and Gina’s friend being persistent, we may have never spoken to each other.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days– Only in the sense that I did not really want to talk to him at first and then we realized in the end, we really were compatible!

Gina and Charles went to Charles’s sister’s dance recital with his family. Afterwards, Gina knew that her family was meeting at Charles’s house for a BBQ. Of all days, Gina had a massive migraine. On the way back to the house, Charles and his dad stopped to get Emma, his sister roses, and Gina wondered why on Earth an 11 year old would want roses. By the time we got got back to the house, Gina was feeling worse. Her parents were already at the house and all Gina wanted to do was go home. Her mom kept saying she would be fine. At this point, Charles kept insisting that Gina go outside with him for fresh air. She reluctantly gave in. Once she opened the back door, she realized that there were heart balloons all over the yard. She knew something was up when her brother, Nick, and her good friend Kaylynn, were on the swing recording them. On each balloon, there was a picture of Charles and Gina and reasons why he loved her. The final one was attached to a box- in the box was our first picture together with another reason he loved her. The last sentence said, “Turn around so I can ask you a question”.
