Hudson Valley Weddng Photographer


A wedding is a roller coaster of moments that come together. Having a healthy line of communication will allow us to get to know each other. On the wedding day, I'm able to capture all those moments that showcases the joy and  connection you two have.

My approach is to make you feel beautiful and comfortable on your wedding day.  I bring experience, positivity, and encouragement to help ensure a smooth wedding day.

Family Mean the World

Family comes first and including them on their big day means a lot. Whether they have a large family or small, find small ways to include their family in the wedding is important.

Details matter

Couples who work with me know that long after their wedding day has come and gone, having a collection curated to show all the nuances of their wedding is important and has value.

Let me answer some questions you may be thinking...

Where do you shoot weddings?

Yes! I'm happy to accommodate couples who are celebrating further away, and happy to travel for all weddings stateside and worldwide! If you're thinking about hiring me for a destination or international wedding, please let me know so we can develop a package together!

I call myself a Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer. It's where I call home and primarily shoot. However, I typically book weddings all over the Northeast including: NJ, NY, CT, and PA! 

Do you shoot weddings elsewhere?

What do you offer then?

The base cost includes a creative fee to work together.  That creative fee includes my creative direction & planning and a wedding photography timeline to ensure that you're getting exactly what you want! All collections are provided in an online gallery complete with edited high resolution images and the ability to purchase fine art prints, canvases, and more! 

From there, couples are provided with the flexibility to add on other popular offerings including: engagement sessions, fine art wedding albums, additional photography coverage, having a second shooter present and dinner rehearsal coverage.

How far in advance do you recommend couples book you?

It depends on you! Some couples decide they want to plan a wedding within a six months time frame; some plan for two years! Couples who work with me, value photography as one of the essential elements to their wedding and will typically book me once they've secured their venue. 

Do you include an engagement session
in your packages?

To be honest, I no longer offer packages but instead prefer to offer a base pricing and allow my couples to pick and choose what they want and need! 

Can you tell me more about  wedding albums?

I love being able to provide couples with a fine art heirloom album that showcases their wedding day!  Most couples invest in a wedding album and it's something I love to design! All fine art albums are customized and can include a personalized etching on the cover. 

Who are your second shooters? 

I'm lucky to work with a tight crew who are all invaluable to me! Any photographer who assists is fully trained and brings something unique to bring to the table!

What happens if rains on my wedding day?

Rain may feel unlucky, but it can add a whole new level of depth to your images! Please do not view the rain as a challenge and instead embrace it! As long as it's not a monsoon out there, I will bring a change of clothes for myself, and happily shoot in the rain with you! And yes, I bring super cute clear umbrellas for you to share with your honey, and for your bridal party!

What if I want something different from the
packages you offer?

Eazy peezy! The packages developed are intended to give you everything neatly bundled! But if you're interested in having more control, you can build your own package from the a la carte menu!

How long will it take to get my pictures?

Every couple receives a small sneak peek from their wedding day within 3-4 days after their wedding! Full collections are completed and delivered anywhere between 10 and 12 weeks.
