Bree & Ryan

These. two. I loved working with Bree and Ryan. I was completely bummed that I wouldn’t be available for their wedding day, but I simply had to shoot some sweet engagement photos for them in anticipation of the big day.

He’s from Hawaii, she’s from Missouri, their paths crossed in the Hudson Valley, NY, and the rest was history. They decided to tie the knot near Bree’s roots in MO, but first they wanted some photos in the state they met. We chased golden light from Awosting Falls to Long Dock Park in Beacon, NY.

“She kept things fun and interesting, keeping the mood light and simple, and allowed us to be completely immersed in our love. The only thing I’m kicking myself still to this day, nearly 3 months after our photo shoot, is that she was unavailable for our wedding. If I were you, and were looking for a wedding photographer for this special time in your life, I’d stop and gaze at the work of Sloane Dakota. She won’t let you down.”
