  • Minnewaska State Park

Minnewaska State Park has a little bit of everything. Take a walk next to the gentle streams, venture up to Sam’s Point (the highest section of the Shawangunk Mountains), or get steamy underneath one of the park’s cascading waterfalls. 

Chances are your Hudson Valley photographer has shot at the park before, so they will know the best places to capture your most romantic photos. 

  • Long Dock Park

Long Dock Park is made up of 19-acres and located on the scenic Hudson River. The park was once a bustling terminal for rail cars crossing the river. It’s now filled with long, jetting docks (hence the name), an abundance of wildlife, and wide-open, tree-lined fields.

  • Playland Park

Be a kid again at Playland Park. It may not be the first location that comes to mind when you think of engagement photos, but it’s definitely the most fun. Snag a smooch on the Ferris wheel and explore the boardwalk amusement games hand-in-hand. Show your family and friends a nostalgic summertime love!   

  • Overlook MountainOverlook Mountain

If you’re in search of a stunning backdrop, look no further than Overlook Mountain. The summit is the southernmost peak of the Catskills and provides unending views of the mountain range. The 4.6-mile trail is coated with wildflowers and bird songs, but it’s not one you’ll want to do in heels. Overlook Mountain is perfect for the adventurous couple.  

  • Constitution Marsh

Getaway from it all at Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary. If you’re looking for dreamy, natural moments, this is the place for you. The marsh is as peaceful as it gets. We recommend getting there in the early morning to guarantee parking in their small lot.
