    The Waterfront

    I know – you’re probably thinking well, duh. Yes, this is a given AND there’s truly no bad spot for waterfront photos – with the toughest decision being do you want uptown, downtown, or midtown skylines. Our advice? For summer/spring, aim for midday to get bright sunny skies that will compliment your glowing soon-to-be-wed smiles. For fall and winter sessions, sunset or a lit up skyline are everything.

     

    Hoboken Terminal

    Hoboken Terminal is simply majestic. Rich in history and unique in design, it’s not only home to NJ Transit but also TONS of gorgeous spots to take your photos. Its gleaming waiting area, the rustic tracks, beautiful signage and winding staircases are all just waiting for you to show up and snag stunning photos at this slice of Hoboken history. Since the terrible crash parts are under construction, and word on the street is you need a permit to take commercial photos {but it can’t hurt to sneak in for a bit!}. A picture might be worth a thousand words, but photos here? Ten thousand, at least.

     

    Washington Street

    The main drag of Hoboken, Washington Street, is where much of the action is —so why not capture it in your shots? Did you meet at a bar? Recreate the scene at your favorite pub. Favorite date night restaurant? Take photos there to memorialize a place so close to your heart {with permission, of course}. You can also capture your weekend morning routine as you grab coffee and walk your pup up and down this idyllic city street.

    This hidden gem has gorgeous cobblestone streets, uniquely colored buildings, beautiful brick backdrops and hidden alleyways that are all perfect spots to grab your guy and plant a big one {while holding the kiss, for what seems like forever, for that one-of-a-kind shot. Worth it, obviously.}

    You’ve seen it in photos, and even though Hoboken now has more than 150 years of history, it’s a fun photo to have in your photo collection. This sign is located at 4th and Sinatra Drive, right across from Blue Eyes Cafe. So fun!

    Aside from the parks on the waterfront, other Hoboken parks nestled in amongst greenery and playgrounds provide the perfect spot for romantic picnic photos, shots on the swing sets or slides, and romantic walks, hand in hand. Head over to Columbus Park on Clinton between 9th and 10th, or Church Square Park on Garden btw 4th and 5th for a playful shoot in the heart of Hoboken.
