Amanda and Michael had the most gorgeous day for their engagement session at Ramapo Valley County Reservation! It was one of those perfect end of summer sessions and with each falling yellow leaf, we were getting excited for fall and the cooler temps it'll bring. In the midst of wedding planning, parties, and busy work schedules - this was just the fun afternoon Amanda and Michael needed to look forward to their big day!

Amanda and Michael got engaged just last year, but met during their time at Montclair State University! Their perfect date night includes going to one of their favorite Italian restaurants followed by a good movie at the theater. Since meeting, their weekends have been filled with some of their favorite activities like cooking and shopping, but nothing stands out more than visiting Ocean City, Maryland. Their favorite place ever!

Last year around the holidays is when Amanda and Michael got engaged. And let me tell you, this story is so sweet! There's nothing more special than decorating for the holidays with your loved ones and Amanda and Michael were doing just that. They began to decorate for Christmas a bit early that year and had already begun with their tree. As they took turns putting ornaments onto the tree, Michael had a special one ready to surprise Amanda. After decorating, she turned around to see Michael on one knee holding an ornament that said, "Will you marry me?" on it! They were able to celebrate the news with their friends and family all season, and that year will always hold a special place in their hearts!

Amanda loves Michael for the simplicity of their relationship. Even when they don't have plans or are simply just enjoying their presence together, she feels nothing but happiness with him. They are so looking forward to their wedding day in the spring and cannot wait to celebrate surrounded by their families!
