Hamstra Gardens engagement sessions rock! Every time I go there to photograph a couple I find new places and new light. Brittney and Michael chose an early fall date when the weather was mild and the trees were starting to turn. It is almost impossible to have a bad photo session at Hamstra Gardens. We have worked herein the rain and it still looked great. When you throw in a photogenic and fun couple like Brittney and Michel, you have the recipe for some amazing engagement photos. Its hard to say what I like best about Hamstra Gardens. The front as you arrive is beautiful, the tower, the old style buildings and the trees are so well maintained and look so good in photos. The abundance of trees and pretty paths make it possible to find good light any time of the day. The water and the little boat are a dream for creative photos and fun couples willing to get in. Naturally some of the candid shots as they waddle into a stationary position are always fun too. No one has fallen out yet, but heck if they were a fun couple I doubt they would care haha. That is partly why I finish at the boat. You never know haha.
Here are some favorite pics form this Hamstra Gardens engagement session in rural Wheatfield.
