Your wedding photos are the photos that will last for generations to come. You know those old time photos from your ancestors? One day that’ll be your wedding photos, framed in the houses of your descendants.
While you will have some beautiful photos from getting ready, the ceremony, and the reception, it has become a tradition that you do a shoot with the wedding party in a beautiful place nearby. The photoshoot in a beautiful New Jersey location will be something that you, your partner, and your loved ones can treasure forever. No matter if you like your photos modern, traditional, or carefree, you might be able to find something in this list that’ll be the perfect spot for you and your partner!
1. Duke Farms
Duke Farms is full of beautiful, blooming gardens and also houses the Orchard Range greenhouse, which makes for some great photos among the greenery. Perfect for those who are after an ethereal look in their pictures.
2. Princeton University
With gorgeous architecture, if you’re looking for old world building charm then look no further than the Princeton University campus. Black and white shots look particularly stunning in this locale. Try out by the lake for something really special!
3. Jersey Shore
While you don’t have to have your wedding on the beach, getting some great snaps on the shoreline could make for a fantastic shoot if you both love spending time out on the water. Try less crowded runs of the beach so you don’t get too many tourists in the background of your shots.
4. The Palisades
Stunning cliffs that look over the Hudson River and an amazing range of colors throughout the year? That’s The Palisades – a part of the Palisades Interstate Park and a glorious spot to shoot if your wedding is being held in the area.
5. Fields of Sussex Sunflowers
If you’re having a Spring wedding you might like to get down to Augusta to check out the stunning sunflower maze – a truly unique spot if you like these bright flowers! Let your happiness radiate amongst the sunflowers here.
6. 9/11 Memorial at Liberty State Park
For a more modern shoot that can also help to remember those that we lost, you might like to consider taking your photos at the 9/11 Memorial at Liberty State Park. The site offers stunning, bold design that can work well with more modern weddings.
7. Lambert Castle
Want pictures at a castle? Lambert Castle might be your best bet. The building was built in 1892, and so offers a heritage spot in which to take pictures. Even better is the fact that the building doesn’t require a permit or fee to take photos at – perfect for those that are on a budget.
8. Sandy Hook
For another beach vista, you can check out the popular Sandy Hook peninsula. This spot can look perfectly dreamy if you choose to take your photos as the sun is setting! There are also abandoned buildings to discover and snap away at, should you be so inclined.
