Kristina & Curtis’ Jumping, Play-Fighting and Dancing-in-the-Back-of-a-Truck E-session

Are you ready for one of the most playful e-sessions you’ve seen in a long time? Seriously, I couldn’t stop grinning while looking at Kristina and Curtis’ engagement photos! These two completely embody the word “fun” and photographer Jeff Tisman so perfectly and GORGEOUSLY captured them. Here’s Jeff with a few words about the shoot:

This was one of the funnest e-sessions I’ve done. Kristina is a fellow photographer and owner of The Luna Blue Studio. I just want to say that it’s always an honor when someone in the “biz” hires you to do their wedding so first I want to give a huge “thank you” to these guys for choosing me to capture their day! They are such a great couple. We were able to borrow an amazing vintage pick-up truck from Kristina’s friend Tara who is also a fellow photographer. And it’s always a good thing when couples have the pooches along since they are part of the family also! We spent the afternoon shooting in and around Allaire State park. It really was like hanging out with friends. Can’t wait for the big day guys!

Is that an awesome photo or what? Say hi to the lovely Kristina because she’s here to share her and Curtis’ love story:

Curtis and I met in a pretty interesting way.. well I guess years ago, it would have seemed interesting, nowadays it’s actually totally common — we met on Match.com! I was one year strong and single after a rough relationship and my friends convinced me to try it out. Curtis was moving up from Florida and hoped to find a friend. The rest is history! There is no way to explain how Curtis and I just seem to fit together. Everything I could have ever wanted in a man presented itself in Curtis and 2 and a half years later, those beautiful parts are still shining as bright as ever. He has shown me what love really means. I know that sounds so cliche, but it’s the absolute truth. For the first time, I feel beautiful and loved in a way that makes me feel like the luckiest woman alive.

For work, I am a teacher and I own my own photography company. Curtis is an IT Recruiter for a large staffing agency. When we are not hard at work, we love watching movies, hanging out with our two beautiful boxers, Chloe and Leyla, that we adore with all our hearts, hiking and spending time outdoors, and enjoying golf (I just started!).  Most of all, we just enjoy hanging out together. There is no such thing as being “bored” when we are together. We laugh, sing, recite movie lines — we are truly best friends.

Jeff couldn’t have captured us any better during our engagement session than if he had a hidden camera following us around on any random day. During the session, we got to be US. We laughed and danced and had those beautiful moments of staring into each other’s eyes. From the moment we began until the moment it ended, it felt natural and we almost forgot we were even in front of the camera at times. The rustic, country vibe that the session had resonates a lot with the type of people we are and where we come from. Curtis’s whole family resides in the South and we wanted a touch of “home” in our photos. Having our dogs as part of the session was a no-brainer too! They are the other half of our family and it’s only fitting to have them hang out with us during such a special day. At the end of the session, we broke out of the country vibe and jumped (literally) into the other part of who we are — the goofy, crazy couple that just has fun wherever we are. I loved the shots of us “fighting” especially because of our New Jersey and Florida shirts! It’s always a debate which is the better state! I loved every minute of this session and our time with Jeff. I can’t wait to have these images to show our children some day!
