Amanda & Jay: Engagement Session (West Point, Thayer Wedding Photography)
After the holiday break, it was great to have two engagement shoots in one day… after shooting a great session in Jersey, I headed over to Amanda and Jay’s place. Our original plan was to get a couple of pictures of their dogs and then head over to Bear Mountain… but they had limited time and instead of rushing to try to get to another location, we just went into town. I’m always fairly certain that we can great shots wherever we go, as proved by this session. One big reason you need to trust your photographer is that you never know what they see… for all of these pictures, there were cars and streets and not-so-pretty stores all around us… it’s my job to put us in the best lighting and to frame the shot the way I want. And so walking through town spending some time together, we got some great images… Amanda and Jay are a great couple to work with and I’m looking forward to their August wedding at The Thayer! I’m glad they decided they wanted a snow engagement session to balance out the summer wedding images we’ll be getting. Enjoy!
