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.

They picked the perfect locations to get ready, married and have a reception.

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.

Weddings and the little things | Aperture Photography Upstate, NY Wedding Photographer

As a wedding photographer with Aperture Photography and artist I always want my work to stand the test of time.  I am educated in fine art and always keep in mind that the very best work never goes out of fashion.  I call it the Black Tuxedo Rule. At an award show it always works.  It  With details simple is better.  It is not about spending a lot of money it is about classic details will look great in your photographs.  Good design never goes out of style and will look good  one hundred years from now as it did the day of the wedding.  I just photographed a lovely wedding in Irvington, NY near Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow  in Westchester County.  I have photographed many weddings in the area and it is always beautiful.  The photographs in this post are of a wedding in a private home and it shows what can be done by a creative bride and groom and family.
