Albany New York- A wedding photographers delight of beauty and culture | Aperture Photography

Wedding Photographer Picture of wedding singer

Aperture photography has been photographing weddings near and in the Albany area for more than 20 years. Although much has changed in 20 years the beautiful architecture and landmarks remain timeless.  As a wedding photographer in Albany NY, I have such a selection of beautiful backdrops to choose from.  The bride and groom are assured of beautiful wedding memories.  There are many historical landmarks in Albany.  For example the New York State Capital, The Egg, the Empire State Plaza, the Palace Theatre and many parks and historic buildings that just aren’t found elsewhere.

With these backdrops of marble, stone, and beautiful parkland, your wedding pictures will be fantastic.  Due to the fact that the locations are very close, you can get the beautiful historic marble and stone buildings and in a short drive be at a scenic park with all its beautiful lush landscape.

Aperture photography especially loves the New York State Capital and the Empire State Plaza.  These areas are amongst the most beautiful in NY State.  A Few minutes from these historic buildings is Washington Park which will give you a different look to  your wedding photographs and add different visual interest to your beautiful wedding album.

The Look of Old Films in a Digital Age | Rhinebeck Wedding Photography

Digital photography has changed the way wedding photography is done.  It is argued at nausea among professionals if it has been a good or bad development.  I am not going into rehash that fight.  Aperture Photography photographs wedding all over the Hudson Valley with both. The high cost of film and processing has priced all put the highest budgets for wedding photography out of range.

I have been working on bringing back the look of old film for  Aperture Photography wedding photography.  The look of film is big in towns like Rhinebeck, Woodstock, Kingston  and many of the artistic towns that do the Hudson River Valley.

Aperture Photography has been photographing weddings in the Upstate, NY area for over 20 years.  Here is a taste of old film types in the modern world of digital.

Kingston New York Weddings | Perfect for the couple and photographer

Wedding Photo on the streets of Kingston, NY  

Kingston NY, is a perfect place for a wedding and wedding photography. The geographic location is next to the Hudson River and historic nature of being the first capital of New York State. It has it all the Hudson River, the Rondout District and the Uptown Stockade District  that feels like you back in the revolutionary war period.

Aperture Photography has photographed hundreds of weddings in Kingston.  It has a wide variety of different locations within a few miles of each other. Every wedding is bound to take on a unique appeal. The Rondout District is colorful with beautiful waterfronts and colorful restored 19th century buildings. As a wedding photographer I couldn’t ask for a more beautiful place. Hollywood films are shot there and for good reason. The uptown stockade district has many original 18 century buildings. With the Senate House the Old Dutch Church and grand stone buildings, the look of the photography takes on a elegant more formal feel.

Everyone loves the Hudson River and Kingston is located right on it. The Kingston point is a favorite location for many couples. Many couples choose to have their weddings in Kingston due to the rich heritage and breathtaking scenes. It is one of my favoritea locations for wedding and reception photographs.

Kingston NY |Wedding Photographer | Enough Snow !

Weddng Flowers  

I just photographed a wedding in Kingston, NY.  I love the cold, but the deep snow and wind just was frigid. I live in the northeast and know for 4-5 months the weather is cold and snowy. I am a wedding photographer who loves all four seasons and winter too.  But, this winter has been so cold and filled with snow.

In March there is enough warm days to melt the snow. Not this year. My studio is in Saugerties, near the Catskills.  Hunter and Windham Mountain are just 15 -20 minutes away.  I have enjoyed some of the beautiful winter wedding photographs.  My brides have loved them.  But enough is enough it is time for spring. I just want to post a bright sunny photograph of a flower.  In a month or two we have the Hudson Valley spring to enjoy.  I cannot wait for spring weddings.

Valentines Day Winter Wedding Woodstock, NY | Aperture Photography Kingston, NY

Wedding Photograph of a couple in the snow near Woodstock, NY I had the pleasure to photograph a wedding in Woodstock, NY on Valentines Day.  I  just cannot get over how the beauty of fresh snow and pine trees make for a wedding photograph that looks like a set photograph in the movie Dr. Zhivago.  After the outdoor shots the reception was held at the Cucina Restaurant in the Village of Woodstock NY.

Woodstock, NY is a special place the mood of the the town and the artistic nature of the people can really make for incredible cinematic photographs. I had a great couple to photograph.  Both Elegant and laid back and the bride looked incredible with the detailed dress and vintage coat.

Kingston, NY is about 12 miles east and it is more of a Hudson River town with great buildings and restaurants that make for great wedding photography. But only 12 or so miles or so from Woodstock it feels and looks like it is in a different world.  Each town is great and I am so lucky to photograph wedding so different and so near.
