I just LOVE Hoboken engagement sessions! Each and every time I’m photographing one of my gorgeous couples there, I’m always in a location I’ve never shot before and no two engagement sessions are ever the same. That’s just SO crazy to me since Hoboken is such a quaint little city! Amanda and Patrick live in Hoboken, met in Hoboken and got engaged in Hoboken – there was no where else more fitting for their engagement photos! It just HAD to be in Hoboken lol. We hit up all the spots of Hoboken that are meaningful to them and all the spots they’ve always loved and it was a blast!
The weather the day of their engagement session was nuts. It was unseasonably warm for a November day and at first, we thought they’d be sweating the whole time! But by the time we got to the waterfront and the sun had begun to set, it not only got chilly but WINDY and wow – it was so challenging. Yet, would you even know that if I didn’t tell you that?? NOPE! These two were incredible in front of the camera together and handled it like pros! Just constantly smiling and enjoying the moment together 🙂 Would you even know that Patrick was REALLY not into taking engagement photos to begin with? I mean, so much so that when we initially met for dinner and drinks in Hoboken he brought it up. But he also mentioned that whatever makes Amanda happy is what he’ll do 🙂 What a keeper, huh?? And their photos came out beautifully because of it! I just loved all the pops of color in their outfits mixed with the backdrops we used in the city behind them – LOVE this session!
Hoboken is a very popular engagement session location for my couples and yet, this was the first time ever I photographed a couple along the cobblestone streets of Court Street or in Columbus Park! Shooting from season to season changes a session as well – the leaves were on the ground and falling around them in the park (and now as I type this up, there are barely any leaves on the trees anymore!) Thankfully the late fall sunlight stayed with us just as we made our way to the waterfront overlooking New York City and I just love how these turned out!! Enjoy some of my favorites from Amanda & Patrick’s engagement photos 🙂
