Alyssa & Matt’s Hoboken fall engagement session was filled with iconic Hoboken scenery! The gorgeous train station, Pier A Park views, pops of fall foliage, & cobblestone streets…it was perfect! These two are so much fun to photograph! Matt had all of us cracking up the whole session! 🙂 The joy and laughter Alyssa and Matt share is simply contagious, and they’re a blast to be around! I’m so excited about all their photos, and can’t wait to share them! But first, you know I gotta share a little bit of their love story!
When I asked Alyssa & Matt to share with me one thing they love about each other Matt said, “I love how caring she is and how she puts everyone first before herself.” Alyssa said, “I love how affectionate he is and how he can put a smile on anyone’s face.”
Matt & Alyssa first met online, and as they started chatting more and more they realized just how much they had in common! Alyssa said “We realized we grew up a town over from each other…I liked football, he played football, we’re both Italian! After a while, we started to date more and more and then here we are :)”
You’ve got to hear how Matt popped the question! 🙂 Alyssa tells the story best. She told me, “Matt asked if we should go to dinner one day in Hoboken (we do this here and there) and before dinner walk along the water and maybe get a drink at Pier 13. When we showed up Pier 13 wasn’t open but decided to go for a walk on the 12th Street pier and we walked down and then started chatting about how far we’ve come. We both lived in Hoboken, were working in Manhattan, moved out of Hoboken, COVID, moving into Clark together, etc. He started to get down on 1 knee and his old roommate was actually there taking pictures! The pictures came out so nice and beautiful, and I’m obsessed with the skyline on the piers so it was all very perfect and very me!”
Alyssa & Matt, you two are an absolute joy! I had the best time laughing with you two and capturing your love. I can’t wait for your wedding day when we get to do it again at The Meadow Wood! 🙂 Enjoy this season of planning and soak in all the times you get to call each other fiancés! Sending you both all my love! xoxo
