We met up with Megan and Michael for their Jersey Shore beach engagement session at the beginning of June just a few hours shy of sunset. During this time we had the opportunity to learn more about Megan and Michael’s whirlwind courtship.
Michael and Megan connected through Eharmony in July 2012. After a week and a half of nightly emails and phone calls they met for dinner at the Stage House in Scotch Plains, NJ. They were both each other’s first “online date”! After they sat down to dinner, Megan was still so nervous that she dropped the box of chocolates that Michael gave her and Michael dropped his fork! Luckily, they were both much more relaxed on their next date. As soon as Michael walked into the restaurant to greet Megan, she knew that he was the one. They enjoyed a delicious dinner and ended up watching the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympic games until 2 am at the restaurant bar. A week later Megan joined Michael’s family on vacation in LBI. They’ve been inseparable ever since!
When asked why they chose the beach for their engagement photos Megan said, “My family has a home on a beach block in Lavallette, NJ. Michael and I both love the beach. We definitely are summer people. We do not like the winter! On our second date, when Michael told me that he loved the shore and hated skiing, I was so relieved! We enjoy taking walks on the quiet Lavallette boardwalk in the early morning or during sunset, sitting by the dock in LBI watching the sun go down, and spending practically all day on the beach with a good book!”
We had such a great time at this Jersey Shore Beach Engagement session with Megan and Michael and we think you’ll agree they are a match made in heaven! You can find Megan and Michael’s E-session featured on Inside Weddings! Stay tuned for their wedding pics in 2016!
