Danielle & Vince chose to stay local at one of our favorite places, Jockey Hollow Morristown for their engagement session. We met up with the couple at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen before heading to the Jockey Hollow Park.
The park is known for long, leisurely hiking paths, which are also great for biking. They perform Civil War re-enactments and have original log cabins where actors don Colonial garb and provide educational tours. There is a rich history behind this park, and the area of Morristown as a whole.
However, whenever we meet up with our couples at Jockey Hollow Morristown, we always choose closer to sunset. This means we begin at 5 or 6pm, when there are far less people roaming around and the re-enactments are over for the day. It becomes a really secluded and private place – ideal for an engagement session.
Danielle & Vince sat down for a drink, and since the bar was just opening for the evening, almost no one was there, either! They had the place to themselves. The staff even brought them a bottle of Prosecco! It was a nice, intimate way to loosen up before the more formal portraits at the park.
Meeting at the bar beforehand was actually really on point. This couple met at a bar in Hoboken through a mutual friend, just before Vince was getting ready to move back to Philly (which is where he grew up). They spent the first year of their relationship traveling back and forth between NJ and Philly. Vince finally moved back to NJ, but they go back to Philly often and he proposed to Danielle in front of his old apartment. They spend their weekends mostly relaxing, spending time with family, going out for dinner, drinking wine and watching Netflix.
They have fun together no matter what they are doing. They were looking for a home and planning their wedding at The Palace at Somerset Park. Even if they have to reschedule, we know their wedding day is going to be beautiful as long as they bring the loving energy they brought to their engagement session.
