Peconic River Herb Farm Engagement Photos

This engagement portrait was taken at Peconic River Herb Farm in Calverton, NY.

Peconic River Herb Farm is a specialty plant nursery on the Eastern End of Long Island and they sell a lot more than herbs. And the owner is kind enough to allow engagement sessions to be photographed there.

As a nature lover, I really enjoyed using this location for this engagement session. It has an abundance of gardens, a rustic barn with a cool attic and several greenhouses with just enough privacy on it's 14 acres of riverfront property.

In this image I put my Nikon 70-200 mm lens up against the nearby shrub to create the "bokeh balls" of color. And I love how happy and connected this couple looks in the photo. It is a sweet and tender image and as always I adore to use color and dramatic light in my work.

And on a side note, I also happen to love to buy my plants here. I am happy to support this wonderful nursery for the unique/high quality plants that they nurture and sell.

So far I have only photographed an engagement session here. However, when I did a wedding was being set up: both a ceremony site and a reception tent.

I would love to photograph a wedding at the Peconic River Herb Farm. I love the rustic feel and the peaceful park like setting. It is a unique location affording a variety of backdrops to produce creative/artful wedding photos.

If you are an adventurous couple that loves and appreciates the beauty of nature, Please contact me to be your wedding Photographer.
