Walkway Over the Hudson

A Post-Wedding Shoot with Marissa and Justin

This is part one of a series of posts for a post-wedding shoot that we did with Marissa and Justin. On the day of their wedding, they were so willing to be filmed and had so much fun doing it that they decided to do a series of post wedding shoots with us. This first set of shots is from the Walkway over the Hudson, the newly opened walkway connecting Dutchess and Ulster County using the old Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge. Not only are the views fantastic, but it is also very peaceful and calming to be up above the river.

We took a walk with Marissa and Justin and they got quite a bit of attention. Not only were people surprised to see a bride and groom up there, but they were shocked to see that she took her coat off. We shot this on Mother's Day and it was VERY COLD and cloudy, especially way up there over the river! Marissa was so committed to having shots done up there that she shed her fleece jacket and worked that walkway like it was 80 degrees! Because of the heavy cloud cover, it made the shots look very dramatic. For now, I only have some video stills that I pulled from the footage we shot, but I can't wait to play with the video and edit it all together!!! I can't decide if I like the color shots as much as the black and white. Black and white just really pops the clouds and increases the drama for me. Hope you enjoy!
