Liberty State Park  in Jersey City, New Jersey is one of our favorite choices for an engagement session because it has so much variety packed into a small space. We always recommend it to couples who want the feeling of New York City and the Manhattan Skyline without having to actually travel to the city! With the iconic World Trade Center in the background, the historic Central Railroad Train Station,  the Ellis Island Ferry terminal with brick walls and iron gates, grassy hills, landscaped gardens and more there are endless choices of architecture and colors. Jui-Ling and Chris brought along their Maltese puppy, Maru, for this fun and lighthearted sunset session. We captured many candid images of  the three walking, kissing, jumping, and even some licking before packing Maru away in his carrier much to his dismay. However, we could feel the spark between the couple and the photos we captured showcased their amazing connection together. As we wrapped up, the sun set beautifully behind the empty sky memorial allowing us to photograph a stunning silhouette with a deep blue and orange sky. Below are just a few photographs from our session together, we can’t wait to capture the wedding day later this year!

Liberty State Park does not require any photography permit and parking is free in a large lot! The state park gates are open from 6 Am to 10 PM year round which gives us the opportunity to meet you at the peak times for amazing lighting in spring, summer, fall, or even winter.
