Hoboken Winter Waterfront Engagement | Emily & Liam

Hoboken, New Jersey


My last session of the year was with Emily and Liam, and they were total troupers despite the bitter cold! December engagement sessions can be tough, but Emily and Liam were laughing through the pain. You would have no idea it was in the low thirties by looking at the smiles on their faces!

Emily and Liam are high school sweethearts and first met a little over 10 years ago. They met on the public tennis courts in their hometown one day by chance, and have been inseparable ever since.

Liam went Steven’s in Hoboken and the two of them (plus Owen!) lived in the mile square city for several years after graduation, so taking their engagement photos on the waterfront was super meaningful. As Emily tells it…

“We spent most of our time as college students and years after college living in Hoboken. We had a lot of great memories in Hoboken and “grew up” together there. We always took walks along the pier and it’s really a special place to us.”

Both originally from New Jersey, Emily and Liam made the big move from the east coast out to San Diego and are loving it so far! In their spare time, these two love to go to the beach, especially the dog beach where they can bring their adorable little West Highland Terrier, Owen, along. They also enjoy playing tennis together, traveling, relaxing at home, and finding new restaurants and breweries to try.

On their 10 year anniversary, Liam took Emily to one of their favorite places in San Diego, the cove at La Jolla. He proposed on the beach, and it was the perfect way to start the next chapter in the rest of their lives together.

This sweet couple hopes to get married in 2021 in Jamaica (!!!), but no matter where they are able to tie they knot they are hopeful it will be on the beach — keeping with the theme of their engagement!

Congratulations to Emily and Liam!
