Raquel and Will wanted to include their family in their engagement photo shoot, and I thought that was a fantastic idea! Unfortunately, we had to reschedule the session once due to rain, and I was hopeful that we wouldn’t have to reschedule it twice. The weather forecast for their second choice day was a little iffy, but we met up at Mohonk anyway and I started taking pictures right away. We did have to take shelter from a passing shower for about 15 minutes in one of Mohonk’s beautiful gazebos, but even that turned out great. I always take time to talk to my clients during engagement sessions to try to get to know them a bit better (I think this is one of the most valuable things about these sessions). This little rainstorm really forced me to put down my camera and talk to everyone. Fact: As clients become more comfortable with their photographer, the quality of the photography inevitably improves.
Raquel and Will’s family is so nice. Everyone was really polite and fun to be around. I had a great time on this shoot. Enjoy the pictures!
