These gorgeous photos from Kerri Lynne photography are proof that the recipe for a perfect engagement session is as simple as a great outfit and two people completely in love. Cassie + JJ's Hudson Valley engagement session is equal parts classic and romantic - from elegant to cozy - these capture their fun loving attitudes and showcase the joy they feel in being together.
From Kerri: I went to high school with JJ, and he was a groomsman in Deidre and Stephen’s wedding. I just loved seeing all the photos he posted with Cassie, and I was so happy when I found out they were engaged! And of course even better was being asked to photograph their wedding! These two are just adorable! They both went to my high school, but didn’t meet until they were in college through mutual friends. JJ proposed on Long Beach Island, where they spent so much time with family in the summer.
The day we photographed their engagement was seriously the most beautiful day. It fell on that recent warm spell where we all thought it was spring – such a blessing! We hiked (yes, she was in a dress and heels) because the path there is amazing, and the light couldn’t have been better! Cassie and JJ also brought some bubbly champagne and popped it during the shoot – and that was so much fun!Then, they changed outfits and we hiked into the Rockefeller Preserve. The trails there are amazing if you’ve never done it! We spotted a field of cattails glistening in the sunlight and knew that would be a perfect place to end the shoot. I loved that these two were up for adventuring down some muddy paths to get there – and it was worth it, just wait till you see!
