V+J | Hudson Valley Engagement Session

They knew each other since their middle school days, but it wasn’t until their college years that Joe found himself drawn to Venus for her character and sincere faith. Initially, he was met with a hard "No," but patient and loving persistence paid off. Venus changed her mind after THREE years and found herself saying yes to a date!

They both love hiking and being outdoors - so much so that Joe proposed to Venus during a hike at Bear Mountain. We took advantage of the vibrant fall colors and an unexpected snow storm to make some magic along these trails. So many laughs as we meandered along and they learned to pose like pros ;) I loved being able to capture their season of transition as they prepare for their wedding day and to begin their life as one. Cheers you two!! Can’t wait for your big day!
