River Queen Adjacent: Beautiful Locations for Pre-Wedding or Engagement Photos

Within just moments of the River Queen's dock, are two beautiful locations that capture both the wonder of the Jersey Shore; perfect for pre-wedding or engagement photos.

New Jersey wedding photographer Adam Okimatsu captured Danielle and Jay's pre-wedding photos at Riverside Park in Point Pleasant, just moment's from our dock in Brielle. What's unique about this location is that it overlooks the river route you will take on the night or day of your wedding! It brings simplistic, beachy vibes with a natural color palette. Most importantly, if you time your session right, you may be able to get a shot of the River Queen in the background just luck our beautiful couple here! After their shoot, they joined us aboard for their ceremony and reception. Remember, you can only hope for a shot like this during our summer cruise season.

The Manasquan Inlet and the Fisherman's Cove Conservation Area are two other local gems captured by Kristen Driscoll Photography, who photographed Jessika and Matt's engagement photos before their wedding aboard the River Queen. She magically capturing those gorgeous muted tones of the grass and dunes in winter along Fisherman's Cove, as well as the striking imagery that can be captured along the Jetty at the inlet. From certain vantage points on the Fisherman's Cove beach, Bogan's Basin can be seen in the background!

If you're looking for something with a little more color and life, look no further than Asbury Park Boardwalk - home of famous icons such as the Stone Pony and Tilly! Located approximately 20 minutes from the River Queen by car, it's a local historical superstar you don't want to miss. In the summer months, the lively atmosphere provides the perfect backdrop for energetic, unique photos that are just as colorful as the River Queen itself; allowing your wedding day photos to transition beautifully from location to location. Garret Musea Photography knew exactly how to document this day!
