Hoboken Engagement Photos • Erin + Chris

Hoboken, New Jersey

It was the most perfect and enjoyable afternoon to walk around Hoboken, New Jersey, capturing Erin and Chris’s engagement photos today. I saw them last weekend at their best friend’s South Carolina wedding and as if the anticipation to spend more time together and hang out wasn’t great enough before that wedding weekend, it was even greater afterwards. Thus, I was really looking forward to capturing these two!

Erin is so detail-oriented; she’s a girl after my own heart! She put together a necklace with both of their name’s first initials to wear (actually it’s also the initials her new married name will be). The center stone in stunning her teardrop engagement ring is very special to them: it’s a stone her grandmother passed onto Chris to use to propose to her granddaughter. Hoboken engagement photos by Mikkel Paige Photography, NYC and NJ wedding photographer.

I can’t take how amazing they look! I love Erin’s sex kitten stare. Rawr! :-) And while I love great photos against interesting urban backdrops I equally adored that spring was around us in all its full bloom and splendor. Hoboken engagement photos by Mikkel Paige Photography, NYC and NJ wedding photographer.

Erin and Chris met in middle school and Erin joked, “We wanted nothing to do with each other!” She keeps this framed photo of them on her desk at work. They’re in the middle…inching away from each other! And who’d have thunk, years later I’d be photographing them trying to inch even closer together. Hoboken engagement photos by Mikkel Paige Photography, NYC and NJ wedding photographer.

After our amazing shoot the three of us had a lovely dinner al fresco on the main street of Hoboken, Washington Street, enjoying a little thai food and beer! I loved getting to know them more and spend one-on-one time together, just the three of us. I cannot wait for their wedding in November!

Don’t forget to check out Mikkel Paige on Facebook and Instagram for even more images from their session!

Happy Monday!
