Beach Engagement Session | Christine Gillin & Dan Plank

It’s such a special time in a couple’s life together, the engagement session. But the fun was taken up a notch by the addition of Dan’s son, Daniel, to their Ocean City, New Jersey beach engagement session. What is better than a couple in love celebrating their upcoming marriage on the beach with an adorable little guy? 

Beach Engagement Session in Ocean City, New Jersey

When we walked onto the boardwalk down by Wonderland, Christine waved her arms in a huge arc. Her excitement was evident even in the distance. Beside her, Dan and Daniel kept pace, and soon we were all together. It’s always good to see our couples again for their engagement session after their consult. Plus, getting to meet Daniel was awesome. He’s a great kid and it was apparent that he loves Christine and that she’s just as wild about him. 

We love incorporating kids into sessions, and so we started with some boardwalk shots. OCNJ is a special place for Christine and Dan and little Daniel. They spent many summer days enjoying the beach, the boardwalk, and especially Manco & Manco Pizza. The weather was beautiful and Christine and Dan were making the most of their beach engagement session. They’re so much fun together. Christine jumped on Dan’s back and he gave her a piggy back ride on the beach, while little Daniel was collecting shells. 

The boardwalk was almost deserted. Only a lone runner here and there. We wandered a bit, and made sure to get some portraits in front of that OCNJ staple, Manco & Manco Pizza. The perfect ending to their beach engagement session.

We can’t wait to be back to capture these two tie the knot, and for Daniel to be the most adorable junior groomsman ever!
