The “official” engagement season has just past, so congratulations to all of you who are newly engaged! Now what’s next?! One of the first steps in wedding planning is figuring out when and where to get married, so I wanted to share a venues in/around the Hudson Valley area that I’ve worked at and absolutely LOVED. As a vendor that sees the behind-the-scenes action, I had an awesome experience at each of these venues and would 100% recommend them based on not just being a beautiful setting, but running the event smoothly, helpful staff, and a general environment of respect and positivity. (I’ve also included a few popular venues that I’ve worked at in another capacity and have been dying to photograph a wedding at!) Feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me here with any specific questions about venues or wedding photography collections, I’d be happy to help!
