Sayen Gardens Engagement Photos :: Michelle and Gaz

Sayen Gardens in Hamilton Township, New Jersey is one of my favorite places to shoot couples at; in fact, I love it so much, when it came time to have my own engagement photos done, I absolutely had to have them shot there! When Michelle and Gaz discussed Sayen Gardens with me, AND bringing their loveable pups…..you all know I was in photographer heaven! 

Michelle and Gaz started off their day in their “dressy casual” attire: her dress was from Banana Republic, his shirt from Untuck It and shorts from Vineyard Vines (quickly becoming a favorite on my list of “suggested attire”!).   These two are soooo awesome! I had so much fun capturing how “goofy” they are and taking them to some of my favorite spots around the gardens.  And when they brought their pups out…heaven for all of us! I adore how they call each other “dog mom” and “dog dad”!

And as if the day couldn’t get any better — Michelle enjoys crafting! She brought along a custom sign she made for their wedding date! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop, 

Thank you for allowing me capture your love and adoration for each other and your fur babies….I cannot wait for the wedding next September at The Palace!

I seriously LOVE Michelle and Gaz’s proposal story…be sure to read it down below!

Describe the proposal

We did Secret Santa at my parents house with the family, and we used a special app to randomly pick each other’s Secret Santa’s; little did I know that Gaz and my family rigged the system, and he made himself my Secret Santa. On Christmas Eve, Gaz revealed my Secret Santa gift — a photo book titled “My Beautiful Family” with a ton of great pictures of me, him and the dogs throughout our relationship. At the very end of the book, the last few pages read: “We’ve made beautiful memories together, but we’ve only been dating casually. So what Bailey and Lacey (our dogs) really want to know is, when are we going to be a real family?” The next page was a picture of the dogs next to a sign asking if I’d marry their dad!

What is your favorite thing about your fiancé?

Michelle: I love how intelligent and loving he is. He’s also the best dog dad around 🙂

Gaz:  I love how compassionate and caring she is towards me and our pups. I know she’ll make an amazing mom to our human babies too.

What is your favorite thing about being engaged?

I love planning our future together.  We have always spoken about it but now it feels so real!  I also love planning our wedding together.  From going out and listening to bands, to working on creating the small details for our day, we have had so much fun on Friday nights and weekends together.

 

What are you most excited about for your wedding? 

We’re just excited to enjoy a great party with our friends and family!
