When Jay reached out to us to share about his plans to surprise his girlfriend with a proposal in Hoboken we were getting ready for our own destination wedding. We had already finished shooting weddings and events for 2016 but upon hearing his plans we couldn’t possibly miss out on the opportunity to be a part of such joyous moments in their lives.

Jay had planned to propose at the Pier A park in Hoboken. It is a great location for engagement shoots, wedding portraits and of course a surprise proposal! With some help from their mutual friends, the plan was set in motion and we waited for our couple to arrive. Their friends were hiding but were able to watch the entire proposal as it unfolded.

As Jay began his proposal, Shalini could not control her emotions and was ecstatic! Hoboken is a such a great location for a surprise proposal and also engagement shoots. We love photographing in Hoboken in around Pier A & Pier C park.

Depending upon the time of the day, Pier A park can get quite busy but the scenic NYC skyline makes up for it. For NJ wedding photographers, Hoboken provides a variety of scenarios to work with.

We decided to spend some time photographing our newly engaged couple in and around Pier A park in Hoboken, NJ.

We had a prolonged fall in 2017 and there were still some trees with great foliage on them. Jay & Shalini are very easy going people and photographing them was such a pleasure. Part of our philosophy is to invest time and energy knowing our clients on a personal level. Making our clients comfortable in front of the camera is paramount to us.

Pier A park not only looks great in Fall but is also a wonderful location during spring and summer time of the year. Great food, beautiful views of NYC skyline and plenty of outdoor spots to hang out makes it a great choice for many residents of NJ & NYC.

The sidewalk around Pier A & Pier C parks are pretty wide and are covered with tress on either side. This allows us as NJ wedding photographers to create a variety of different looks by simply walking in and around Hoboken. Hoboken has many cobblestone streets which are popular for engagement photos.
