Hoboken Waterfront Engagement | Danielle & Aaron

Hoboken, New Jersey


Danielle and Aaron were so wonderful to work with! We took their engagement photos in Hoboken, which is special to them because it’s the city where they met and fell in love. The day of our session also happened to be their three year anniversary, which made it all the more special.

I absolutely love the story of how Danielle and Aaron met — playing Zog Sports Softball in summer 2017! As Danielle tells it, “We both signed up by ourselves (totally out of our comfort zones!), hoping to make some friends and meet people local to the area and were put on the same team! We went on our first date to The Cuban in Hoboken in August. After a few more dates and adventures, we made it official after a romantic day in Central Park having brunch at the Boathouse and taking a ride on a rowboat! We’ve been inseparable ever since, and have been so lucky to be able to travel the world and enjoy life together!”

Fast forward three years, and Aaron pops the question! “We were about to purchase a home, and that morning we had our home inspection so Aaron knew I’d be doing my hair and makeup (since we’ve been working from home with no excuses to get dressed up!). After the inspection and working for the rest of the afternoon, we decided to take a ride up to Aaron’s parents’ beach house in Ortley Beach. Aaron suggested we stop for dinner on the way in, but I didn’t think that would work out because the weather was terrible! The entire ride there, it POURED! Somehow, right as we got to our exit, the rain stopped and the clouds parted a bit! We decided to go check out this restaurant and Aaron suggested we take a walk in a park on the water that was across the street to check out some boats docked there. Well, there weren’t any boats because of the rain and there were a ton of puddles, so I was ready to get to dinner! But then Aaron got on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was so shocked and excited! The next day we got to celebrate with both of our families and it was the best weekend ever!”

In their spare time, Danielle and Aaron love to travel, go for hikes, bike rides, and runs, and watch their favorite shows together.

Here’s what sweet Danielle had to say about our experience working together: “Working with Jill was the BEST! We had the most wonderful experience. Going into the photo shoot, my fiancé and I were a little bit nervous, and afraid we’d be camera-shy. As soon as we met Jill, her bubbly and warm personality took all of the nerves away! She made us feel so comfortable and threw in a few silly prompts that made sure we were having fun and laughing the entire session. The photos turned out absolutely AMAZING. We are so grateful Jill was able to capture these special moments for us. We’ll cherish these photos forever!”

I had the best time with Danielle and Aaron, and feel so lucky to have gotten the chance to capture these moments to commemorate such a special time in their lives!
