Frank photographed our wedding in 2009 and did a superb job. Our photographs are true treasures and works of art that are anything but typical. I must admit that when I see most other wedding photos I think to myself "wow, we are so lucky because our wedding photos are just so much better." Moreover, Frank was extremely reasonable and able to work within our budget (which was limited at the time) and still achieve beautiful results. Thank you for your professionalism and talent. -Claudia Patch

Frank is the photographer we were looking for, and found out was necessary to obtain the quality we expected for our wedding. He is a true master of his craft and we knew the photos were going to be amazing even before we saw them. The way he managed ourselves and our guests was as seamless and effective as it gets. It was a pleasure having his presence to photograph every aspect of our day. He even got great shots of the children during group arrangements with family. This extra effort meant the world to us. Once we got the photos we were more excited and pleased than we thought we could be. His use of various lenses, cameras, and lighting resulted in the most stunning collection of wedding photos. Aperture Photography was the right choice and we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos.

Frank went above and beyond our highest expectations. We had a wonderful array of long lense shots, fabulous shots of the wedding party and many great candid photos. From the very first phone consultation he was a pleasure to work with. He even brought along his wife Darlene, who took some great shots of the cocktail party. We highly reccommend Aperture Photography. Frank is a truely dedicated artist !

Frank was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding photography! He was very kind and personable, and reassured us when we were stressed or nervous. The photos came out much better than I could have imagined, and he was so quick in getting them back to us after our big day! I will certainly recommend Aperture Photography to friends in the future!

Frank is a very talented and enthusiastic photographer! He was friendly, easy to work with, and accommodating. He made sure that we had a positive wedding photo experience; he mailed us the USB and completed the website in only a couple weeks and the web layout looked great! He is very fairly priced and is definitely worth every penny.

Frank was great to work with! Very approachable prior to the event and flexible during. The pictures came out AMAZING! He seems very genuine in his desire to make the memories of your big day perfect. Looking at our pictures months later makes us feel the same as we did the day of our wedding. If I had a do-over, I would definitely choose Aperture Photography.

Aperture Photography did a fantastic job photographing our wedding. From the beginning, Frank and Darlene had a very consultative approach and listened to all of our concerns and desires. If you're looking for someone who really cares about capturing the moment and is a very professional photography outfit, look no further. Aperture photography does it all!

Frank and his wife Darlene photographed our engagement shoot and the pictures turned out amazing. We were initially considering a few different photographers for our wedding and engagement shoot and after much debate decided on Frank, and we are INCREDIBLY glad we did. Frank has a rare talent for art and this really comes out in his pictures. He worked with us to find a suitable venue for the shoot, and his pictures are absolutely perfect. He is extremely professional, accommodating, and worked within our budget while not sacrificing an ounce of quality. We cannot wait to have him shoot the wedding.

Frank did an amazing job capturing our wedding day. He traveled to the Adirondack Mountains and spent the morning before our ceremony capturing beautiful photos of the scenery. He took the most amazing photographs and I am so happy to have perfect photos to look back on our perfect day.

Excellent Photographer

My husband and I got married 9/26/14 at Windham Mountain and were SO happy we chose Aperture to do our photography. When we first contacted Frank he was so enthusiastic about shooting our wedding that he offered us a discount on our total package cost. Communication with Frank was easy. He was very quick to reply to our emails and calls, and he made the time to sit down with us to discuss our expectations. The day of our wedding Frank was extremely professional and got some absolutely stunning photographs of our big day. We had a beautiful fall day for our wedding and Frank did an amazing job capturing our gorgeous scenery as well as the highlights of our day. We also loved that we were given full rights to all of the photos as well as an online gallery to share with family and friends. We would highly recommend Aperture Photography to any couple getting married in the Hudson Valley or surrounding regions. Frank does not disappoint!

The Best!

First off, I want to mention that my husband and I had two wedding ceremonies, with two different photographers. One in New York, with Frank, and one in Colorado with another photographer. Getting to see the difference between a great photographer, with a professional attitude, and a photographer (the one is Colorado) who showed us a great front, but on the wedding day was terrible, really brought to light exactly how wonderful of a job Frank did for us on our wedding day. Frank was constantly taking pictures, never missing a beat. On the other hand, Colorado photographer was constantly seen sitting down, not taking pictures of things that were happening. Frank and Darlene were wonderful to work with. Frank is super enthusiastic, friendly and professional. I love doing business with genuinely kind people. He was very responsive from start to finish. Every time I had emailed a question, his response was never more than a couple of hours later. We didn't really know what we wanted in terms of styling, but Frank made sure to capture everything we could have wanted and more! His dedication to making our day so very special was obvious and very much appreciated. He was there from start to finish, and traveled with us from Poughkeepsie to Rhinecliff for our ceremony and reception. Everyone commented on how great they both were, and how wonderful our pictures turned out! We got our pictures back in about 2 1.5 to 3 weeks, just in time for holidays and upcoming birthday presents. And the flash drives came in the mail to us in very pretty black boxes with glass tops. I will hire them for whatever other special occasion comes along, and highly recommend them for weddings. Fantastic job!!
