When you find out that your couple had a soul bonding experience at Burning Man in the first few months of dating, if you're anything like me, you do a happy dance! Brett and Talia were leaving Brooklyn last Thursday to come to Hudson, NY for a dress fitting so we scheduled their Connection Session for the same day. I am quite fond of Hudson and a little biased as I got married at the Basilica Hudson in 2014. The magnificent brick building sits on the very edge of town, in a seemingly forgotten area that houses broken down trailers, old industrial buildings long ago abandoned, several non-working railroad tracks, and it's eye candy everywhere!Read More

There is something really magical about Hudson Valley Engagement Sessions, or as I like to call them, Connection Sessions. Watching two people enjoy a couple hours together, with no phones, no distractions, and beautiful views... it's hard to not enjoy it.
This particular spot in Cold Spring, NY is off the beaten path. It truly has it all. The forest path eventually opens up to a sandy beach at the edge of the Hudson River, with overgrown patches of grass, fallen trees, branches that have beaten by the river and turned to driftwood, and big open skies as far as the eye can see. Every once in a while, a boat comes by reminding you how remote you really are.Read More

I always encourage my couples to choose their engagement session locations but most of the time they default to my special nature spots. Not this time. Kate + Drew knew exactly where they wanted to head. In fact, their second date was climbing the mountain adjacent to the Moodna Viaduct. With one bottle of water. And a lot of gumption. Ha.
They were adorably sentimental as they told me the story of their beginnings, some of the dates in between and then the impending engagement. Totally a love-at-first-date type of romance. Kate is so sentimental, she thought about wearing the same outfit to our Moodna Viaduct Engagement Session that she wore on their first date. So sweet, right?!Read More
