It was a lovely, albeit a little warm, summer evening when we got together in Clinton, NJ for an engagement photography session with Courtny, Casey, and their adorable son Giancarlos or “G” as we called him. In terms of NJ engagement photo locations, Clinton fit what Courtny told us she was looking for which was something “rustic, chic”. Clinton, NJ is a nice town with a lot of history and a great place to take engagement photos. This interesting bridge is located at the end of town. The town of Clinton is full of fun shops and local eateries.
One of the most photographed locations in Clinton is the Red Mill which sits across the bridge from town. The mill operated for more than 100 years. If you are interested, you can read more on the history of the Red Mill. Courtny and Casey were ok having fun, so we had them play around on a statue in front of the museum and across the river from the Red Mill.
One of the other things we love about Clinton is all the texture of the buildings that comes with the history. The museum is just one example of a nice rock wall seen in the photo above on the right. When we think about great NJ engagement photo locations, we think about what the client is looking for, but also locations that offer us a variety of scenery and backdrops so you will get a great set of photos with a lot of diversity.
We caught Courtny and Casey in a quick kiss, but G wasn’t too excited to see it.
Another great place to check out in Clinton is the Hunterdon Art Museum. You can see it’s an old stone building in the background here. The museum which started as a grist mill supposedly ground wheat for General George Washington’s revolutionary army during its encampment in Morristown. I don’t a lot about that, but I do know that Courtny and Casey are in love and it shows! I’m sure their rustic, chic wedding will be beautiful and we wish them all the best.
If you are looking for a great NJ engagement photo location, why not try the romantic city of Clinton and give us a call, we would be honored to capture your love in images.
All the best, Gwynne and Ron
