Doing engagement pictures on Long Island is so easy. There are so many private and public locations available. The bride’s parents live in East Patchogue, 5 minutes from the water. And her father is a passionate gardener. When it was time to schedule an engagement session the bride came up with the idea of her father’s garden. She said it was amazing. And it was. He divvied up the backyard into rooms. Where ever I turned I saw another opportunity for a great engagement portrait. It is my style to walk around and “look” for opportunities. I like to keep it casual, without too much rigidness. So this was perfect for all of us.
