Planning your engagement? Well, then you’ll need to start thinking about the perfect spot to take your photos to keep the moment cherished forever! Whether you propose in these locations, or head there after the big moment, they’ll be sure to capture your heart too.
1. Jersey Shore
We love a good beachside photo op! There’s nothing more calming and soul soothing than the ocean, so if you are ocean lovers, then check out the towns along the shoreline for some beautiful scenery.
2. Duke Farms
There are a bundle of unique little spots to take pictures throughout Duke Farms, set over 2740 acres. Have a look through the Old Hay Barn, or the orchid hothouse for some cool backdrops for your engagement photos.
Frenchtown, despite the name, shares more in common with England in its surrounds and styling than France. Picture stunning green hills and a super cute little town in this area.
4. Fields of Sussex Sunflowers
Just picture it. You and your partner amongst the sunflowers, some of them stretching as high as 7ft! The fields of Sussex sunflowers bloom in fall, and are a dazzling sight, whichever way you look at them.
5. Eagle Rock Reservation
Out in West Orange, the Eagle Rock Reservation is famous for its views on the New York City skyline, and picturesque forest walks. Find your ideal engagement photo opportunity in this blissful location and snap away.
6. Fort Lee Historic Park
This historic park is an elevated space that offers visitors wonderful views out across the cliffs, George Washington Bridge in the foreground, and the Hudson and NYC skyline in the background. A true gem is Fort Lee Historic Park.
7. The Palisades
Love cliff views? Then The Palisades may well be your best bet for your engagement photos. The views atop the cliffs look out over to the Hudson river, and you can feel like you’re reconnecting with the earth – these basalt cliffs are over 200 million years old.
8. Brookdale Park Rose Garden
If you’re a big fan of roses then you might want to make the trip out to the Brookdale Park Rose Garden in June, when their roses are in bloom. With over 100 different types of roses amongst this garden, you’re sure to find your dream flower.
9. Liberty State Park
Set over 1212 acres, the Liberty State Park has beautiful views out over the water – it is surrounded by not only the Morris Canal Big Basin, but the Upper New York Bay, too. People visiting here often feel a sense of poignancy due to the 9/11 tribute.
10. Branch Brook Park
You don’t have to travel to Japan to see the gorgeous cherry blossoms in bloom, you can find them right here in New Jersey at Branch Brook Park, out in Belleville. If you want to catch the park in full action mode, come out during the Cherry Blossom Festival.
After the engagement, you’ll have to start thinking about planning the wedding! At Il Tulipano, we offer a beautiful setting and backdrop for your big day, and can help to arrange everything to make your dreams come true.
