When Caity + Chad mentioned that their favorite hiking spots were in the Catskill Mountains and that it was where they’ve been snuggling together since the beginning of their love story we were all over it. So, for their Catskill Mountains hiking engagement pictures we followed them on an awesome loventure through the Catskills. There was a chill in the air and the crunch of leaves under our feet as we followed the trail, exploring the nature around us and being completely in awe of the beauty of the mountains surrounding us.

 

Chad told us a story while he was getting the camp fire started about how he took Caity camping early on when they first started dating and decided that it would be a good idea to throw her into full on, primitive style camping. That means you bring in all of your supplies and shelter on your back. It worked out well, because the Catskills became their favorite outdoors getaway, from camping to swimming in the natural watering hole. They even told us the story about how one time they had to jump into action to save a little boy who had gotten hurt at the swimming hole, with Caity jumping into action with her nursing friends and getting help.

 

We lucked out with the rain that had come through earlier in the week and the waterfall they showed us was overflowing with water crashing down onto the rocks below. We had so much fun wandering around the mountains with them, these are hands down our favorite kind of engagement shoots when we can all get swept up in a loventure and nature.
