Rachel and Joe found us thanks to their amazing wedding planner, Jacquelyn from EVJ Wedding Co and we’re so glad they did! We’ve worked with Jacquelyn several times before so when she connected us with Rachel and Joe, I knew they’d be wonderful to work with. Rachel and Joe just booked us a few short weeks ago but they wanted to squeeze in an engagement session this fall so they arranged their schedule to make it happen and it did! We met up on a beautiful September day in Hoboken, where they currently reside, and split our session into three parts: Stevens Institute, Court Street, and Pier A Park.
I’ve shot in Hoboken several times before but it was my first time at Stevens Institute! I’m so glad they suggested it because the campus is full of scenic spots that are perfect for an engagement session. We had the perfect mix of greenery, urban settings, and the NYC skyline, of course! But my favorite part of the session was just chatting with Rachel and Joe and getting to know them a bit. They are planning a beautiful June wedding at the Farmhouse at the Grand Colonial and I have a feeling that it’s going to be here in no time because time is going to just fly by! We’re so excited to be back at this NJ venue where Rachel and Joe will be tying the knot right on site and then enjoying their full cocktail hour with family and friends before celebrating on the dance floor. Such a wonderfully relaxed day they are planning!
Below are just a few of my favorite images from Rachel and Joe’s engagement session. Enjoy this recap and stay tuned for another engagement tomorrow – ’tis the season!!
Congratulations to our sweet couple!! Your wedding day will be here in no time and we can’t wait!
