Caumsett State Park in Long Island is one of my favorite places to go biking and when Rebecca and Carl said they wanted to do their engagement photos there I was all over it. I only of the George Weird Barn for weddings and the bike trail which I never ventured off of. This was all uncharted territory which I get excited for since I have no preconceived notions on where to shoot. When I'm looking for scenes to put my couples in I go about it with the mind of a landscape artist. Many of the scenes would look great even without my awesome couples in them, but when I can get a well composed landscape then add people in it that's when magic happens. We spent about an hour and a half walking around the property getting some great moments together.
I love when my clients ask me where they should have their engagement photography done. I try and pick a location close to where they are and typically like to have an area that gives the option of different settings. The couple was coming from Sea Cliff so I figured Morgans Park in Glen Cove would be perfect since it's in the neighboring town. Morgans Park has plenty of trees, little path ways, and it's right on the water, which makes it perfect. I think it's safe to say we all usually have a pretty good time during these sessions since I keep everything casual and as natural. We ended with them dancing around in the gazebo. If you want to have an adventure like this or are looking for a long island engagement photographer shoot me and email.
