I loved this engagement session because it involved two of my favorite things: photography and Mohonk Preserve! Mohonk Preserve, for those of you who may not know, is one of the best places to go in the Hudson Valley. It’s a huge nature preserve in the Shawangunk Mountains in Ulster County. You can hike, mountain bike on carriage roads, swim, ride a horse, or just chill. I’ve been going there since I was a student at SUNY New Paltz and have been getting an annual membership since. It’s an amazing place. Check it out. Anyway! I had a great time with Jill and Collin walking around, taking pictures, and getting to know them better. I was happy Jill and Collin were able to schedule this during the ‘magic hour’ for taking pictures. It’s simply the best time of day for photographing. Nothing beats warm afternoon sunlight filtering through the leaves!
