Hudson Valley Wedding / August 25, 2019

Mary & Brendan

If you love fairytales, then you’ll love Whitby Castle! Nestled in the Hudson Valley, it’s a modern day castle for weddings! (And a modern golf course for patrons!) And as a hudson valley wedding photographer, it’s a dream venue to shoot! Seriously! When I say that taking pictures here is amazing, you just have to scroll ahead to see for yourself!

As their wedding photographer, I knew that Mary & Brendan wanted to create something special! They had gotten engaged in Paris the previous summer and they wanted to embody that theme throughout their wedding!

From an actual horse & carriage entrance, to a bagpipe player, the ceremony was unique! And from ornate eiffel towers taking place as centerpieces, to a crazy reception, this wedding was one for the books!

MEET Summer

Photographer, artist, mother, outdoor lover, inspired by movement & motion, good light, and you.

I 'm a wife and mother. I love 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.

When I'm not in the Hudson Valley, you can find me enjoying time up in the Adirondacks at my second home. I find myself drawn to nature and the world we live in and often let it act as my muse when shooting.
