Thacher Park Engagement Session – Amanda & Nick

A stunning couple, Thacher Park and super dreamy light makes for the perfect engagement session! This state park is a super special for these two fiancé’s because it where they got engaged! Amanda and I talked about doing their session around Empire Plaza in downtown Albany. But being out in nature at a beautiful park that is super meaningful to them outweighed the beautiful architecture downtown! The views and endless field never disappoint at Thatcher Park and the weather was absolute perfection!

I remember talking to Amanda over the phone way back in December of last year. We talked about how they met, how Nick proposed on a hike and how we share a love for cookies! I feel like she might be my sister from another mister and a different dad. More simply put, they’re a pretty great couple and I loved getting to know them more throughout their engagement session! Amanda and Nick met in Oswego College and have been by each other side ever since!

Although Nick isn’t a huge picture guy, you would never know that by looking through these photos. These two totally crushed their engagement session! They spun around in a field, got all their steps in and popped champagne to celebrate their love! These two definitely stirred up a bit of pollen but we made it through, allergies and all! I may have made them run through dandelions but the photos that were a result of that are beyond worth it! We fought off some massive gusts of wind but who doesn’t love wind blown hair?! To finish their engagement session, we found a beautiful spot just as the sun was setting. They pulled out a blanket, a bottle of champagne, and two glasses. This was the best way to end an engagement session and now I feel like every couple needs to do this!

In less than a year these two are tying the knot at one of my favorite venues, Franklin Plaza in Troy, New York! Their day cannot come soon enough! I can’t wait!! Cheers to the last 365 days of being fiancé’s before husband and wife!
