Weddings should be Fun ! | Leave it to the Professionals | Catskills Wedding Photographer

The act of getting married  means many things.  Love, commitment, change and a start of a whole new life.  Wedding are complex events.  There is much to do and the feeling that everything must be perfect .  Perfection should also mean fun and the absence of anxiety. Fun needs to be right up there on the priority list.  1 year of planning and stressing out can be avoided.  Hire professionals with a good track record and that will solve most of your problems.  Weddings are not an event to take chances.  I feel as a wedding photographer with more than 20 years of experience that all you have left after the wedding is a collection of beautiful professional photographs.  You can look make and relive one of the most important days of your life.  Sure it is tempting to hire a semi pro photographer at low prices.  But hiring a weekend warrior is like riding on a plane with no landing gear.

Karen Wise Elegant Perfection Just a Perfect Blend of Photo-journalistic Wedding Photography

If you can afford and she is not booked, stop and hire her right now. If not she is where I take my inspiration. Consider Aperture Photography Wedding Photographers as an 2nd choice.I plan on spending a little January time studying her even more then I do now. A shot of my own: Aperture Photography in Newburgh.  Great Wedding, Great People.

Depth of Field in Wedding Photography|Aperture Photography Saugerties Photographer

As we all know what we don't show is often more interesting then what we show.  In photography.  Photography is all about leading the eye to what the main focus of the photograph.  Some times you just don't want to show the papers, coke cans or the normal items that are in a brides room, but the light is hitting the bride just right and she looks great.  No problem using a fast lenses and a wide aperture will leave her in focus and blur the distracting background. On the other hand Aperture Photography shoots many weddings in the Catskills of New York.  The scenery is just breathtaking.  You want to show it. So you set your camera lens so it will revel both the bride and the surrounding mountains.

Please drop us a line at Aperture Photography " All the info is on our web site at

I just wanted to show the ring and a bit more and blur out the distracting background.

In this Engagement shot the Empire State building was critical to see so I set the camera to show both.

Aperture Photography Wedding Photography| Hudson, Hunter, Saugerties and Rhinebeck

Aperture Photography Wedding, Portraits and Events Photographer spend many weekends photographing weddings in theHudsonValley and Rhinebeck and all over the Catskills.  I am not showing  much of the backgrounds in this post. I just feel the mood is different and it shows.  I just love The Rhinecliff Hotel with it's river old world charm I adore The Full Moon Resort with it's total quiet relaxed feel and majestic quality.  The peaceful beauty is sure to please. The are so many venues with similar feels and quality and are mentioned in other posts. Although the East and West side of the Hudson are just a few miles away the weddings have a totally different feel.  The East side with its Mansions and rolling hills and the West side with the majestic Catskills.  Love them both and feel very lucky to shoot in such worlds.

The Big Storm would not have even slowed the Monster Truck|Aperture Photography Upstate Wedding Photographer

Getting ready for the big storm and wedding photography is all I can think of.  I am editing the weddings and uploading to the lab 24 hours a day.  Who knows how long the power will be out.  I hate my customers to wait so I will work until the wind blows the power lines down.  As a Hudson Valley and Catskills Wedding Photographer I know how brutal the weather can be.  Take a look at the monster truck from the Sunny Hill Resort in Greenville, NY.  I may need it.Aperture Photography at the Sunny Hill Resort in Greenville, NY
