David + Francesca / Upstate NY engagement session

When David and Francesca were planning their engagement session, they wanted something a little out of the ordinary from their NYC life. She found this gorgeous, quaint hotel called the Hasbrouck House and we drove upstate on a surprisingly chilly August afternoon to visit. It was basically a prettier version of a Gilmore Girls set.

We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds, talking photography and wedding stuff (two of my favorite topics!). I can’t wait to photograph their big day in Brooklyn later this year.
