Aperture Photography | The Amazing Hudson Valley and Albany Area

Hudson Ny Wedding Photograher.jpg

For Aperture Photography the Hudson Valley and Albany area makes wedding amazing. We are having a very busy and great year. We are located in a perfect location to photograph anywhere. The many years of shooting wedding is a huge help. But, What makes being a wedding photographer in the Hudson Valley and the whole of the Northeast is the amazing difference in venues and looking. No wedding is the same. And for a visual artist the variations in the Hudson Valley and the Mountains that jet up from the Hudson River give me so much inspiration and motivation.

Just to name a few types of look are the old barns converted to wedding locations with its rustic look are the answer. The seemly endless looks like the Catskills and Adirondacks and the Hudson River and many lakes and farm lands are hard to beat.

Upstate NY and Northeast Barn Weddings | Aperture Photography

Barn Weddings are all the rage.  Aperture Photography photographed at least 15 this year.  They can be amazing.  Beautiful farms with rustic old barns look amazing.  This Year I photographed Barn weddings in the state’s New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Connecticut and New Jersey.  What I have notices most this year is that the Barns have so much more comfort and luxury.  Just a few years ago the barns we beautiful and quite original, but in a way roughing it.  That’s fine for some couples, but the modern changing rooms, rest rooms and in many barns A/C have made it so comfortable and enjoyable.  It was a hot summer and fall and the little comforts are welcome.

The barn venues are everywhere now. From remote locations in Vermont and the Saratoga area to the hidden away private yet lovely barns in downstate New York and the Albany areas.

I love the texture and beautiful farm lands and of course the mountains we are so lucky to have here.  I feel I can make a beautiful collection of artful memories that rival any place in the world.  From vast landscapes to quite ponds the limit is only the imagination. Here is just a tiny fraction of the 20 to 30 thousand photographs I shot this year.

Here are some photographs from the amazing :

This year reminds me of the Johnny Cash song " I've been everywhere ".  6 states, New York, New Jersey , Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New Hampshire. This is just a small example of where this year has taken me.

 

What makes it so fun is the different looks and creative differences from the Mountain weddings in Killington Mountain Resort, Hunter New York and the Adirondacks of the north of New York State to the beaches on Atlantic Ocean and Lake George.  It just a creative shot in the arm.

Everyone should pick the type of entertainment that suits their taste. The Hudson Valley and Albany area has it all.  But as a wedding photographer who sees mostly the same type of entertainment I love visual stunning acts. I just love acrobats.

Does the best equipment matter | Hudson Valley Photographer

The most important thing b far is the photographer and his or her talent.  But equipment sure does matter.  Especially with Weddings in the Hudson Valley.  Upstate, NY Wedding Photographers like Aperture Photography  have to deal with the darkest conditions with very rainy and cloudy days along with super hot bright days with shadows and glare.

By far the most important thing in a photographers bag is fast and weather proof lenses, It goes without saying they most be sharp and have great color.  Pro camera bodies in last few years are just great.  If you have the correct glass you can create a fine image,

To me and I know it is just my take on cameras only Canon and Nikon are suitable. Many good photographers do well with others.  Like the Sony and Fuji mirrorless are fine cameras, but the lenses needed to do the job have just started arrive and they lack dual card slots for backup.  In a few years I am sure the will be perfect.

I choose Canon for 2 reasons.  They make the fast lenses needed for my style and I love the colors.  Brides just look great and the time saved in photoshop is very welcome.

Again,  talent is key, but the tools to bring out the talent sure do help.

Hudson Valley Wedding Photography | Something beautiful for everyone.

The Hudson Valley may be the new Hamptons !  I read an article in which many of the so called hip crowd has bought homes in the area.  Also,  I have noticed about 1/2 of my customers live in New York City or the nearby areas.  For good reason.  The Hudson Valley and the Catskills has become a go to place for art, beauty, music and culture.

The many different options and styles of venues are endless.  From amazing small towns like, Saugerties, Hudson , Kingston and so many others to the rustic locations in the Catskills it is just a feast of beauty.

It is amazing that in the Hudson Valley your wedding photography and looks can be so different.  In a half an hour you can be at the Hudson River and then the many ski slopes of the Catskills make the Hudson Valley a area like no other.  Aperture Photography has photographed everywhere from the many barn weddings to the old mansions along the Hudson River.

Couple in Seamons Park in Saugerties, NY  

A Beautiful September day for a wedding in Saugerties, NY.  The heat and humid weather always seems to fade in the middle of the month.  It sure makes for a wonderful comfortable time.  The bride and groom looked so good.  They had such a a great time with a great group of guests who know how to have a great time.

Summer Weddings in Upstate NY

Summer Wedding in Kingston NY by Aperture Photography Flower girl photographed at The Chateau

t has been both a beautiful and painful summer shooting weddings in NYC and upstate, NY.  It seems hotter and more humid the ever.  I could be wrong due to the trend toward outside weddings.  The Wedding and wedding industry blogs and publications are mostly based on the regions coastal of California.  The wedding are almost never humid and much cooler.  The wedding are held about 1 hour before sunset.  The comfort level could not be better.  This has influenced the wedding here where weddings held in hot humid times were not the norm just 5 years ago.

The reasons are many and I will list just a few.

  • Church weddings are becoming rare.
  • The venues would much rather time and locate the wedding at a certain location and time for logistics.
  • And of course the wedding media and the California weather style.

This is not to say New York outdoor weddings are not wonderful.  If the weather is on your side and the timing is perfect The Hudson Valley is the best.  But in July and August it could get uncomfortable.

Form mid September until late October nothing is like the Northeast part of the US.  Absolutely the best place to in the world to hold a wedding.  The refreshing air and great views are world famous.  And who does not love a North East  Fall foliage, christmas or a snowy wedding.

Don't get me wrong.  The summer is special, but think about the heat when make up and hair is involved.  You can do a lot no matter what the weather to insure you are picture ready.
