If you’re searching for a beautiful place to take you engagement photos on Long Island, look no further than Frank Melville Park. Hiding just off Old Field Road in East Setauket, this picturesque spot is the perfect rustic, romantic getaway.
Frank Melville Memorial Park first opened in 1937, and it has been one of the most charming places on Long Island ever since. You and your sweetheart can wander along the scenic, wooded trails of the Preserve, enjoy the quiet, romantic feel of being hidden away from the rest of the world. Tucked away at the north end is the Bamboo Garden, a fun place to catch a few playful moments. At the other end of the Preserve at the Bates House and Bates Barn, two beautiful old buildings that provide a glamorous, rustic backdrop for your photos.
If we walk further through the park, we’ll come to the old Setauket Millpond, where we can take a long stroll around the edge and capture the sunlight sparkling on the water. The old Mill House is the perfect place to explore if you’re feeling a little adventurous, or simply relax and enjoy the sunset, hand in hand.
No matter when you come, Frank Melville Park is a stunning escape from the busyness of everyday life. We’ve seen it blooming in the summer and covered in snow in the winter; no matter what, it always looks perfect!
