Alissa and James { a Hudson Valley Engagement}

I first met Alissa when she was little more then a toddler...maybe 7 years old, wearing a pink ballet skirt and pink slippers. Her legs were long and she was certainly adorable

Well she grew into a graceful and lovely young woman, sweet and gentle, and so very lovely to be with.

She became  engaged to tall, handsome James, A perfect life partner for this wonderful lady.

I am so very lucky and honored to have been able to document this chapter in Alissa's life. It is the perk of being a photographer in a community where you see your subjects grow up.

We ventured to Wilderstein after a very heavy rain for some shots, then escaped the mud to the Hudson River.What a geat way to spend a heart warming afternoon. The wedding will be a joy
