I 'm a wife and mother. I like lazy Saturday mornings with a cup of coffee. I prefer nights on the couch with my family, but also enjoy craft beers and apps in a swanky bar. I love being outdoors and I'm eternally grateful I get to experience all four seasons! I dig personal touches & homemade items over commercial goods. Admittedly, I also love shopping on Amazon Prime.

I believe in crafting stories...embracing all the emotions and driven by a desire to include tehchniques and an eye for composition that makes my couples smile.

'Summer Barnhart is the best
Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer...'

I can't say enough good things about Summer! When choosing a wedding photographer it was really important to me to find someone who would catch the beauty in the details and in the simpler moments of the day. Not only did Summer do just that, but she was able to do that in the midst of dealing with a late groomsman, potential for extreme rain on the day of and with a bridal party of 20 people. My bridesmaids are still talking about how great Summer is! Aside from the day of, she talked us through everything leading up to the day and made sure we were comfortable with the direction and timeline. We are so happy we choose Summer to shoot our wedding!

Summer was the first and only photographer we spoke with and we both knew instantly that our search was complete. Quite simply, she is the best in the game. We were amazed by her continued passion and excitement. She is immensely skilled and creative – don’t expect a checklist of cliché wedding photos with Summer, she has true vision and is not just a photographer going through the motions. She looks to capture your unique story through her artistic lens.
We knew we were in good hands. We deliberately provided little instruction because we trusted that the photos would come out perfect and they did!!! On top of all of this, she was generous in sharing tips and trips to ensure the day was smooth and successful. She helped craft our day-of timeline and thanks to her guidance, it was simply perfect. Not one issue! We can’t thank her enough and will be using her for many more occasions down the road. THANK YOU SUMMER!!!!

It’s hard to fully express just how amazing Summer is! Every shot she took was beautiful. You can tell she loves what she does and it shows in every picture. We cried going through them. Not only is she an amazing photographer but also a groomsman wrangler. We had a bridal party full of rowdy comedians and she knew just what to do to get them in line. She felt like a part of the family and at the same time she was invisible in the crowd wrapped up in capturing all the amazing moments of our wedding. I would recommend her 1,000 times over and it was such an honor having her there taking our pictures.
