Who’s Gettin’ Hitched?/Hoboken Engagement Photographer

This morning’s session was like none other that I’ve done before.  Being new to NYC, I get nervous about venturing out away from my usual routes and so when I had to get myself to Hoboken, on the other side of the river, early this morning, I was slightly nervous about it.  I woke up at 6:30 and got out the door by 7:30 to give myself plenty of time to catch the train at 8:15.  Plenty of time to get there!  Yeah, plenty of time if you can just NOT get lost.  I’m so good at getting lost, let me tell you.  So I made it to the train, stomach rumbling from not having time to stop for a bagel, just as the train was about to leave.  Whew!!!  Thank goodness the session went well once I got there.  It started off a little rough because the sun was just sooo bright!  The sun comes up super early here in the north which makes morning sessions pretty tricky.  In Manhattan, there are plenty of buildings so there is always shade, but in N.J. it was totally different.  I was feeling a little worried about the whole situation.  After we finally decided to just walk around the town and find some cool spots things finally started to click and I was getting some great shots.  It ended just perfectly too!  This couple met in a bar in Hoboken and so we ended the session at the bar.  SO much fun!!!  I loved it!  I love when couples have some unique ideas like that,  makes the photos so much more personal.  And the best part about all of this, she loves the vintage look, oh yay!  Thanks you two for putting up with all of my silly ideas this morning.  I had a great time hanging out in a new town with you guys!  And did I make it home without a hitch?  Of course not.  Got on the wrong train, went way out of the way, had to find the right train and finally made it back to the city, absolutely starving!!  Next time, sessions out of the city are gonna have to be evening sessions, after a good meal.  Lesson learned.  😉

I love this one.  She just looks so beautiful!  Work it girl!  😉

Check out this view of the city!  Gorgeous!
