To be honest, I just needed to get away. Away from Connecticut. Away from the mundane, the too familiar. Away.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my work and I love each of the clients I get the privilege to serve, truly. Sometimes, though, you just need a change of scenery… literally.
However, regardless of how I may be feeling on a particular day (or days), the client’s vision comes first. Every time. Always. So, when Kim and Ed trusted me with the location selection of their engagement session, I knew it was going to be a special shoot.
It was still dark when we left for our little road trip. We planned for an early morning session, which totally paid off. John Boyd Thacher was our destination (a New York State Park in Voorheesville) and if we arrived any later we’d of been overrun with day-hikers and passerby, “Oh, excuse me! Pardon, me! Oh, I’m so sorry!” or worse, “Photobomb, HAHAHA!”… yeah. Hysterical. Thanks for that.
The thought of a (New York engagement session) would normally conjure images of busy streets, dazzling skylines, and bustling people. Fortunately for this couple (and for me), the Empire State is as eclectic in its landscape as it is its inhabitants. With breathtaking views, vibrant foliage and even a waterfall that seemed to fall from the sky, this New York State Park was indeed a getaway.
Here are some of my favorite shots from Kim and Ed’s excellent adventure.
