Deep Cut Gardens & Mustard Seed Cafe Engagement Session


Michelle and Nick are getting married next year and I can not wait to work with them again. They really wanted both an outdoor/green and intimate/cozy engagement session. We began our day at the beautiful Deep Cut Gardens in Middleton,NJ . Where we shot inside of a Greenhouse, the main reason Michelle choose this location. After we headed to Staten Island for the rest of the engagement session. Michelle & Nick choose a cafe they have both visited before. The Mustard Seed Cafe was so courteous in letting us shoot inside.

This session was an absolute dream. It was my first time shooting at Deep Cut Gardens and it will definitely  not be the last. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous ! Michelle and Nick came to slay, both looks fit each location perfectly. The black dress with the tulle, I mean WOW.

This couple was very in tune with each other which made capturing them so much easier. I hope you LOVE this glimpse of their NJ & Staten Island Engagement session as much as I do.

We got so lucky that at the time we were shooting at Deep Cut Gardens, this open area was super glowy. The light was just perfect !

Nick would like people to know that he is NOT a Cowboys fan lol. He simply chose this cap because it matched his fit.

  1. […] This amazing couple booked me right at the height of covid in 2020. I remember after a few months of not booking and having to cancel/ reschedule weddings, I was terrified what 2021 would be for me. Then Michelle and Nick found me and gave me a glimmer of hope. We hit it off right off the bat and once they booked we shot a GORGEOUS engagement session. Take a look HERE. […]
