Set the Scene: Rain-Check Romance in New Jersey
December’s chill and the threat of a storm couldn’t hold a candle to the warmth of Courtney and Dom’s engagement session in Hoboken, NJ. With the weather on the fritz, we flexed our plans and found ourselves at the Hoboken PATH Terminal, which proved to be more than just a rain shelter.
Their Love Story:
Courtney and Dom are the kind of couple that takes life’s curveballs and hits them out of the park. With a storm threatening their plans at Liberty State Park, they didn’t skip a beat when the decision was made to pivot locations. It’s this go-with-the-flow spirit that brought us to a place close to their hearts: Artichoke Pizza, the very spot where their official journey as a couple began. As fate would have it, this change of plans led to a session filled with meaning, laughter, and a dash of delicious nostalgia.
Theirs is a love story that embraces spontaneity and cherishes memories in every corner of life. When Dom got down on one knee where it all began, surrounded by the aroma of pizza that had once witnessed the start of their relationship, it was more than just a proposal—it was a full-circle moment. The rain may have altered their engagement session plans, but it couldn’t dampen the radiance of their bond. Instead, it added an unexpected sparkle to the session, much like the one in their eyes when they look at each other.
Courtney and Dom
Courtney and Dom, your engagement session was a testament to the unscripted beauty of love. It’s in the way you both laugh under the umbrella, the way you dance in the unexpected places, and how you find romance in the everyday. I’m so excited to celebrate you two on your wedding day in November at The View on the Hudson!
As you step closer to your big day, remember the joy found in the unplanned and the stories written in the streets of Hoboken. It’s a joy I’ve been privileged to capture and one I can’t wait to witness as you both say “I do.”
In the heart of Hoboken, Courtney and Dom’s engagement shoot transformed a rainy forecast into a celebration of love, connection, and the city’s unique vibe. I find the extraordinary in the every day and believe that a little rain simply adds to the story. If you’re planning your own engagement session or looking forward to your big day, let’s talk. Together, we can capture the real, the candid, and the moments that matter. Reach out early to book your date, and let’s make something beautiful, rain or shine.
