Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ

We hit it out of the park for Stefanie & Pete’s Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ. Their baseball-themed engagement session was cute and very much them. Stef and Pete are true baseball fans, and they even met at a Yankee Game. We started their session on the fields at a local park where they live. I love when I have more than just trees and a couple of benches to work with. Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ

Their session was fun and relaxing. They are very easy-going people, and it made my time working with them super easy. Granted, I came off a major wedding the night before, so having a wonderful couple like them to work with was a great way to end the weekend.

It was a nice change getting to photograph an engagement session with a cool theme.

I am honored to have captured the love story of an amazing and wonderful couple. Stef and Pete, thank you for allowing me to capture your special moment, and I am looking forward to capturing your love story even further at the wedding in September. Stef and Pete will be tying the knot in September 2021 at Yankee Stadium. Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ

A LITTLE Q&A FOR THE BRIDE & GROOM

HOW DID YOU MEET?!

“At a Yankee Game. I’d say we met by chance, but really we met by fate. We had been to three or four of the same Yankee Games that season, but that night, I decided to go to the game on a whim, and he begrudgingly went with friends. I noticed him early on. He has a great laugh that I heard over the rest of the crowd. He noticed me when another fan was getting sloppy and kept knocking into my friend. He came over to diffuse the situation, and of course, I made him stay to chat.” Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE!

“I left work early in anticipation to meet Stefanie and some of her friends for the Yankee Wild Card game. I sat in NYC Yankee Playoff traffic. I made it to the stadium just shortly after the game started. It took me a minute to locate Stefanie at our spot (The Toyota Terrace). After an Aaron Judge home run and a few spilled Bud Light Limes, I was able to find her. We spent the game chatting, getting to know each other, and flirting. After the Yankees won, I drove Stefanie home, where we had our first kiss.”

HOW DID YOU FALL IN LOVE?

“Quickly! We tried our best to fight it, but it was obviously a losing battle. One night, about a month after our first date, he was dropping me off at my car after yet another Yankee game. I didn’t want to leave, but it was already so late, and we both had a long drive home. A song came on the radio, Weekend by Kane Brown, and we just had THAT moment. We looked at each other and knew. This was it. We were in love.” Baseball Engagement Session Fair Lawn NJ

HOW DID HE PROPOSE?

“On the 2nd Anniversary of our meeting, I had told Stefanie we would be going to dinner in Brooklyn. What I had in store was a little bit more. I rented a white stretch limo to pick us up and “take us to dinner.” On our ride, we played music and chatted. Along the way, we veered, of course, without her knowledge, to our favorite spot in the Bronx (Yankee Stadium). I walked Stefanie to NY on the ground in front of the main gate, covered with rose petals. I got down on one knee and asked to spend the rest of our time together.”

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?

Stefanie: “I love that we are getting married in the same spot that we met, exactly three years to the day. It’s as romantic as you can get!”

Peter: “I am most looking forward to standing with Stefanie in front of all of our loved ones standing in the same spot we met to share my love for Stefanie.”

YOUR LOVE STORY IS MADE INTO A MOVIE; WHAT IS THE TITLE?

Stefanie: “Love at First Pitch”

Peter: “Love and Yankees”

DESCRIBE YOUR RELATIONSHIP IN 5 WORDS

Stefanie: “Perfect, True, Adventurous, Patient and Fairytale”

Peter: “Loving, Sharing, Honesty, Understanding, Silliness”

WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT MEANS THE MOST TO BOTH OF YOU?

Stefanie: “Honesty. We both came from bad relationships and had a lot of growing and healing to do. Things could have turned out a lot different if we weren’t comfortable and able, to be honest with one another every step of the way.”

Peter: “We value being able to communicate with one another and always share our feelings.”

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT EACH OTHER?!

Stefanie: “My favorite thing about Pete is his outlook on life. We joke that the world is going on around him, but his biggest worry is something as silly as what snack he will have later on. He doesn’t worry about things. Just let’s life do its thing, and all he has to do is enjoy the ride.”

Peter: “I love her caring and understanding personality. And her beautiful smile and curly red hair.”

HOW HAVE YOU GROWN AS A COUPLE SINCE YOU STARTED DATING?

Stefanie: ” We both force the other out of their comfort zone. I’m a shy, introverted bookworm, and he’s a loud, extroverted social butterfly. As long as we’re hand in hand, we’re game for anything.”

Peter: “We communicate better and work through any adversity together.”

FAVORITE QUIRK ABOUT EACH OTHER?!

Stefanie: “Pete has a great memory and is known to randomly blurt out movie quotes, trying to pass them off as everyday conversation.”

Peter: “I love her knowledge of random facts and her obsession with zoos.”

IF YOU COULD SPEND 24 HOURS WITH YOUR PARTNER, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING?

Stefanie: “Something new. Like going on vacation to a new destination, seeing a new place, trying new foods. I love experiencing new things together.”

Peter: “I love spending alone time while we take road trips only to be capped off with a game at Yankee Stadium.”

WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST LOVED BY YOUR PARTNER?!

Stefanie: “In the little moments we share. When he takes my hand while driving, catches my eye, and winks or rolls over in the middle of the night and pulls me close.”

Peter: “I feel loved when she hugs me before I leave for work every morning, and she lovingly greets me when I come home.”

IF YOU COULD BE INSANELY TALENTED AT ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?!

Stefanie: “Cooking! I’m still learning, but I wish I could look at a few ingredients and whip up the perfect dinner.”

Peter: “Singing in the shower and car.”

FIRST IMPRESSION OF EACH OTHER

Stefanie: “He’s so confident! He had an ease and swagger about him that immediately caught my attention.”

Peter: “Damnnnn Girl!”

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE CANDIES AND CHOCOLATES?!
