Winter Engagement Session at Awosting Falls in Minnewaska State Park



Winter engagement session at Awosting falls in Minnewaska State Park

While most of my work takes place in the Lake Placid area, I do occasionally head south to the Hudson Valley & Catskills regions. Last February, I met Kelsey & Bryan at Minnewaska State Park for their engagement session in front of Awosting Falls.


It was a cold day and the path down to the falls was icy and snow-packed. While Kelsey, Bryan, and I all wore micro-spikes, a majority of the park's visitors did not and were sliding down the road -- many on their butts! I remember even passing groups trying to unsuccessfully make their way back up the road: for every one step they'd take, they would slide back three!


Do you live in NYC and are planning a Lake Placid wedding but don't want to head up that far for your engagement photos? There are a TON of epic spots around the Hudson Valley to stop at. Just a few hours north for you and a few hours south for me, it makes for the perfect meeting spot. Check out this post and I think you'll agree, heading north is always worth it!
