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.

Kingston NY Wedding Photographer | At the Train

If you look around  the wonderful Hudson Valley there are endless backdrops for great wedding photography. All you have to do is keep you creative eyes open.  This Train photograph idea happened on the way to the New York State Thruway.  I drove from Saugerties to Kingston and as I got off the interstate I  saw the wonderful restored train car.  It's brilliant red color in the autumn sun made this location a must.  The bride and groom were so nice that they indulged my idea and we had fun.  They are such a creative couple.  Creativity to me is just seeing and being open to opportunities that are everywhere.   Couples think the have to go to famous out of the way places for there photographs.  That is fine, but great photographs are everywhere !  Contact Aperture Photography and let us create our unique wedding collection.  Visit http://aperturephoto.com Aperture Photography Weddings at Kingston, NY

Kingston NY Wedding|Aperture Photography Kingston and Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer

This was fun ! I just love late 1900's and early 1900's buildings. Shooting weddings with the vintage buildings and wonderful period colors stir my creative juices.  Don't get me wrong I love country and mountain scences, but a change keeps a photographer fresh. Aperture Photography and more importantly the bride and groom get photographs that are stunning. The Hudson Valley has and the colors done a great job restoring the great old buildings.  Towns that 20 years ago were falling apart are now pure gems.  Here are a few shots from this weekend in Kingston, NY.  Saugerties, Hudson, Albany, Saratoga, Poughkeepsie, Beacon and all the way to Westchester have similar beauty.  Contact Aperture Photography at http://aperturephoto.com Aperture Photography in Downtown Kingston, NY
