Spring Downtown Hoboken Engagement

Hoboken, New Jersey


The perfect start to my engagement sessions this year with sweet Shannon and Victor! In typical April fashion, almost every day leading up to this session had been impossibly dreary and full of rain. Thankfully, we were gifted the most beautiful evening for Shannon and Victor — not too hot, not too cold, and just the perfect amount of glowy sun peaking through the clouds.

These two first met in college! As Shannon tells it, “We met in the summer going into senior year of college when my roommate took me along to her friend’s party. Victor was a gentleman and stuck by my side all night long, but I played very, very hard to get. I eventually fell head over heels after realizing he was the most amazing, selfless guy. We’ve been through long distance and have now been dating six years!”

Victor officially popped the question last August in Paris, and I truly can’t imagine a more romantic setting to get engaged. Shannon, of course, said yes and absolutely loves her ring. “I have a solitaire radiant cut ring! We went to one store together one random night to try on styles, and afterwards he took the lead all on his own. He proposed within a month and I was very shocked to say the least!”

Together these two currently live in Hoboken and love cooking and trying new recipes together (especially homemade pasta), dancing in their apartment, spending time at the beach, and having nights out with their friends. Taking their photos in Hoboken was all the more meaningful as it was the first place they lived together as a couple, so it holds such a special place in their hearts. We also stopped by their go-to local pub, Cork City, to have a beer and a cheers to their engagement.

I’m so excited for Shannon and Victor’s wedding next April at Maritime Parc in Jersey City — counting down the days until we can celebrate these two!
