From growing up in and living in New Jersey, we have discovered a huge number of amazing photo locations just from driving through exploring various parts of the state on the way to weddings and juts for fun. We found this particular spot in a rural part of Monmouth County while hunting for fossils along a riverbank with our daughter and her friends last summer. Upon seeing the natural beauty, we immediately knew we had to come back to photography a couple one day. When Jeff & Andrea told us they wanted something other than the typical parks in the area for their engagement session, we knew this would be the perfect place. With it being late fall, the many fields and trees were a multitude of muted yellows which made the couple and their pup almost pop off the page. After exploring the fields, we found a (relatively) safe way down onto the banks of the stream that ran alongside the park for some waterside photos. We had a great time photographing this engagement session and can’t wait for Jeff and Andrea’s wedding next year in Asbury Park.


Big Brook Park does not require a permit and parking is always free and easy. The park is open sunrise to sunset year round which gives us the opportunity to meet at just the right time for amazing lighting no matter the season. It is beautiful in spring and summer with the leaves and trees in bloom or fall and winter with muted natural colors.
