JERSEY CITY ENGAGEMENT: ALAN + ILIZA

I feel like me, Iliza, Alan, and Waverly (their pup) need to start a curly hair club! For reals though, these two are so stinkin' adorable! They met through mutual friends and their relationship evolved into a life together full of laughter and joy! As you can tell from the photos below, Iliza is one of the happiest people on earth and I'm sure most of the credit goes to Alan! Their joy is contagious and my face actually hurt by the end of the session from laughing so much! This wedding can't come soon enough! :)

"Hey guys...why don't you stand here and snuggle, and I'll...um...stand over here in the shrubbery..." = story of my life!

Alan proposed with the ring in this pink pouch in the very spot where Iliza is standing!

I always encourage couples to find unique ways to make their engagement session personal, and I have to say getting tacos was definitely a first! Alan and Iliza ate at Taqueria in Jersey City almost every week for years! They love this place, and I can see why. Not only is it adorable, but the tacos are amazing! If you go, you must try the chorizo one!

Yay group photo, selfie style! You don't even want to know the amount of effort it took us to get this photo! [Note to self: start bringing tripod to engagement sessions.] Iliza and Alan, I seriously cannot wait for the big day! It's going to be amazing!
