Hudson Valley Engagement Session | J + D in New Paltz, NY

We really love that our couples trust us enough to pack up for the day and drive up to where we live in the heart of the Hudson Valley for their Connection Sessions. And even though Dave and I have lived here for many years, we still find new and exciting places to bring our couples.

I love the way David was with Jenna. He knows how to make her laugh and we could tell that her smile brings him much joy.

See how comfortable they are with each other?

They even brought their super cute dog along for a few pictures and Jenna's brother came to hold the leash! I think this dog has a future in show business.

We are so fortunate to live in such a rich and diverse place. This is the Rail Trail that spans many many miles and connects several towns together. It's a great bike riding path without the worry of cars. Very peaceful.

Doesn't she have a great smile?

So sweet these two.

And this is why I love the golden hour in New Paltz. The colors are like nowhere else and make everything extra romantic.

Beautiful light.

Jenna + David are getting married at one of our favorite venues, Full Moon Resort. It's surrounded by nature and nestled in the Catskills- so picturesque.

Sometimes it doesn't suck to try something new. Sometimes.

We are surrounded by apple orchards here in the Hudson Valley and there is no better place to watch the sun disappear over the ridge.
