Why do we love engagement pictures? Engagement photography captures a moment in time that you are in love, about two people who are finishing the first chapter of their lives together, before they marry. It is a unique time in life, and should be documented to show who you are and as importantly, who you are together. Beautiful, classic, unique, edgy, or intimate, we can create the photographs that capture your connection.
Consider where and what time of year you will want for your pictures. Spring and Fall engagement pictures are always popular, for their favorable weather and unique flowers and foliage. Summer sessions are popular for the flexibility of the long days, vibrancy of greens, and ease and fun-factor that comes with the season. Don't overlook winter for the clear and simple landscapes, and the fun cuddle-factor to keep warm. If you're deciding which is best, consider an alternative to the season your wedding will be in, which will provide all the more difference in your backdrop.
There is such a variety of locations for engagement session throughout our area, and our gallery reflects the various parks, estates, farms, fields, and forests that can be used for beautiful pictures. We love the elegance and historical backdrop of Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, the unique Poughkeepsie Train Station, and the vast mountain expanse of the Church of the Holy Name in Cragsmoor. Unique locations have brought us to farms, barns, formal gardens, covered bridges, parking garages, lakesides, riversides, and abandoned buildings. Skylands Manor in Ringwood, NJ offers a variety of gardens, fields, with huge Tudor-style mansion, and the epic NYC skyline, former train station, including the Statue of Liberty can all be found at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. The possibilities are truly endless.
Engagement photographs allow us the option to celebrate you, and only you, minus the pomp and circumstance and attire of a wedding. What do you want your photographs to say about you? Let us know.
