Sarah + Mike: Hoboken Engagement

We’re so excited to share another awesome shoot from our crazy month of October! Sarah and Mike are getting married next July and we all got together this past weekend in New Jersey for a Hoboken engagement shoot at sunrise. We love sunrise, we love Hoboken, and we love couples who are willing to get up at crazy hours to cater to our creative whims!

Sarah and Mike met in Atlantic City a couple of years ago and have been inseparable ever since. They’ll be the first to tell you that they are are proof that you never know when you’ll meet the person you spend the rest of your life with. Neither of them is particularly fond of the club scene but they were both out with friends and Mike approached Sarah in a bar and the two of them immediately hit it off. You can see how happy Sarah and Mike are after even just an hour with them. On to the pictures!

Here is our awesome couple just as twilight began over the Manhattan skyline.  The light was just spectacular!

As the sun continued to approach the horizon, the colors changed constantly and we were totally alone on the pier.

This light is why it’s always worth it to get up early and brave the chilly Autumn air!

Once the sun was above the skyline across the river, we headed into Hoboken a little bit to take advantage of the golden light falling on the town.

It’s awesome how easily these two make each other laugh.

Look at the colors Hoboken had to offer us!

Sometimes we have weird ideas.  And sometimes our couples are on exactly the same wavelength.  I half-jokingly suggested Sarah and Mike get on this spinning…thing…and Sarah said she’d been thinking the exact same thing!

A few final shots along the tree-lined pathway along Hoboken’s waterfront to finish up the session.
