Ashokan Reservoir

Hudson Valley Wedding Videography:I’m not familiar with New York’s  Hudson Valley have only driven through a couple of times but was blown away by its beauty. It was so lush it I expected to see a Brontosaurus walking down the path like in Jurassic Park. It was a wet weekend so the green was amped: its lushness reminds me of Hawaii minus the palm trees.

Sophia and Tate did their research.  They knew there must be a quiet picturesque spot where we’d be able to do photos and video and their tenacity paid off.

They found a narrow path leading to a grouping of rusty row boats, some chained to trees untouched for a decade. Deer hung about wondering who was visiting, but turns out they had better things to do that to the subject of a video.

While filming we managed a cell phone snap posted on Instagram down below.  We really looking forward to seeing what the pro’s photos will look like.  I’ll post a link when I have.

I’m not sure if I’d be able to find this exact spot again but it’s worth the effort! A song was written about the beauty of Ashokan, made famous by Ken Burn’s Civil War.

We’ll be editing this one shortly.
