On a very last minute scheduling frenzy, these two love birds met up with Jon in northern New Jersey for their engagement photos. The cherry blossoms were nearly peaking when this session took place, and we happily soaked in the magnificent colors as we worked our way around Branchbrook Park. Some say this park Newark’s best kept secret– so much so that we almost decided not to write about the location specifics (half-kidding).
Priscilla and Dayton: congratulations to the both of you on your engagement, and thanks for letting Dreamlite Photography be a part of this celebration.

As photographers, it’s always a blessing to catch a small break from the normal routine of weddings, engagements and portrait sessions. While we love what we do, every once in a while we need to take a breather and find an outlet to recharge ourselves both creatively and mentally. When Sue had contacted Jon a few weeks back, her email suggested shooting something along the lines of “fun.. fashion.. free spirited…crazy.” Those keywords were enough to get things rolling.
Below is the culmination of the few hours we spent adventuring Harlem & the surrounding neighborhoods.
(Special thanks to Sue for being way too cool to work with. Also, thanks to Lakeshore Learning Center for suggesting the touchable bubbles we used that evening. Although our frigid fingers prevented us from successfully collecting and stacking the bubbles, y’all should try it out and share with us your experiences.)
