New York Wedding Photographer – Ulysses Photography Blog » artistic. unobtrusive. fashionable. fun.

There was never a doubt that Stephanie + Patrick’s first photo shoot with us was going to be a huge success. There’s something about these two that just made us want to photograph them from the moment we met them in person. They’re naturally affectionate, and they completely trusted our vision for their photos. Stephanie has this very cool artistic sense about her, and Patrick is the perfect strong anchor for her soul. They’re a beautiful match both in person and in photos. Our Extended Session of engagement photos was everything we hoped it would be and more! We’re incredibly eager to join them again for what promises to be a spectacular wedding at Crabtree’s Kittle House in 2016.

We’re glad Hannah + Jared’s day was so beautiful, so they could enjoy the last few leaves of Autumn color in our regions. After a lovely candlelit ceremony, their large crowd of closest friends and guests were primed for what would prove to be one of the most energetic, pulse-pounding, and joyous horahs of 2015 — merely one of the highlights of their incredible day!

It didn’t take long at all for Mikayla and her little sister, Nia, to break out of their initial shyness in front of us. These two beauties are natural stars, and we loved our time with them and their parents. Their sense for micro-fashion and fun-loving nature were perfect not only for photos, but also for great memories with mom & dad.

Nothing could be more enjoyable on this Autumn day than a warm afternoon with Baby Eloise. And have you ever seen a baby with her very own Metrocard? This sweet little girl was highly anticipated by her parents, and she pulled out all the stops for her very first portrait session. We’re thrilled to have her parents trust, and we can’t wait to watch her grow.

When you have a couple as kind and heartfelt as Hannah + Jeremy, you want everything to flow with nothing but perfection. That’s exactly the way their wedding day went, and we couldn’t be happier for them! At their romantic candlelit ceremony, it didn’t surprise us one bit to see their emotions playing out right before our eyes. It was easy to see why their friends and family love them so much and why this was such a joyous occasion.

Samie IR dipticSamie + Eric had us at “hello”! From the time we started planning their fashionably-themed Extended Session for engagement photos to their gorgeous and emotive wedding day, they were a genuine pleasure to photograph. So we’re completely overjoyed to share Samie’s impressions, kind words, and recommendation of Ulysses Photography for any bride who’d like to take their photography beyond the ordinary:

Ulysses and Jenni are the husband and wife team you need at your wedding! From helping zip up bridesmaid dresses when we needed a man (Ulysses) to Jenni’s ability to keep EVERYONE on track this dynamic duo exuded professionalism. From constant contact over the planning process of our wedding through e-mails and even Facebook, we felt that Ulysses and Jenni were not only our photographers but invited guests at our event and always find that whenever we post a photo of our post wedding adventures a like from Ulysses is not far behind! There was no better treat then coming back from our honeymoon, sad it was all over and that same day receiving our proofs online! You’re wedding day will simply be better by having this lovely couple be a part of it, we hope to celebrate many more wonderful occasions with them in the future.

Not going to lie — we hope the very same and can’t wait!!

Our 80+ similarly-enthused brides can tell you so much more than we can about what it’s like to work with us. So don’t miss what they’re saying about our photography services in the reviews at

If her parents could bottle all the smiles they get to see on Baby Mackenzie’s face, we’re sure they would be millionaires! We can’t believe how Mackenzie has grown since we last saw her. But spending time with this happy one-year-old felt like spending the day with a tiny long-time friend. We’re really enjoying the chance to watch Kim + Kenny’s family grow so beautifully.

The saying, “time flies when you’re having fun” should be on a cute new T-shirt for Gianna! She’s gotten so much bigger and prettier since we last saw her as a newborn! She’s such a cutie in those pigtails, too. She’s a happy and healthy two-year-old who, along with her big brother, makes her parents want to be the best they possibly can be for their kids. We couldn’t be happier for this beautiful family. We’re so glad to be their photographers over the years of their journey together!

It was already love at first sight when we had our very first photo session with Baby Nate. But now seeing him again as a happy, active, and adorably chunky nine-month-old, we were completely smitten all over again. He loves his big brother, Owen, and they each invited us to play along with them in the Autumn leaves while they searched the yard for as many acorns as they could find. Nikki + Jared’s parents were there, too, so we were able to include everyone for incredibly enjoyable extended family photos. It’s a marvelous privilege and joy to follow this happy family throughout their lives as they grow together!

When we gel with a couple the way we did with Rose + Mike, great things are bound to happen! We love their spontaneity, their spirit of adventure, their easy affection for one another, AND their tree-climbing skills! Spending a day in a town that brought back good memories for each of them made photographing them that much more special. With a beautiful Autumn season and gorgeous sunset views to accompany us, the scene was set for a perfect Extended Session of photos with this awesome couple! We can’t wait to join them for their upcoming Summer wedding at FEAST at Round Hill.

When Elizabeth + Josh contacted us about wanting an Extended Engagement Session in iconic New York City, we knew they were going for something really special. What a beautiful time we had with them!! Central Park is one of their very favorite things about NYC, so that’s where we met up. What was even more exciting for us is how easily the four of us worked together. It felt as if we’d known them for much longer than we really did, which made the session flow smoothly and comfortably. The Extended Session allowed for more time and outfit changes as we explored breathtaking views of the the park and the skyscraper backdrops. We’re so glad to be their photographers and really look forward to working with them again in the future!

Let us state it plainly and simply: We love photographing Rebekah + Harry! Shortly after their wedding, they moved out west and began adding to their family. We’ve kept in touch during that time and were thrilled when they told us they were visiting New York again and asked us about photos with their little girls. We had such a great time going back to the site of their wedding, getting reacquainted with this beautiful couple again, and having fun with their CUTE little girls. Family photo sessions like this are a great reminder that professional photos aren’t only for the wedding day — they’re also for a variety of other milestones in life. We’re truly privileged to be Rebekah + Harry’s family photographers!

We could not have enjoyed our session more with Jill + Paul. We knew years ago, when we met them at Lisa + Matt’s wedding, that we wanted to be their photographers when the time was right. Well, there was no doubt that everything was oh-so-right during their Extended Engagement Session. We joined them at their favorite places near and around the George Washington Bridge, where we took advantage of the unique local flavor and sights of New Jersey and New York City. Having such a beautiful view of the Englewood Cliffs, the Hudson River, and NYC, we simply couldn’t get enough of this fun and trusting couple. The Harley Davidson motorcycle they brought along added the finishing touch to our session. We can’t wait for their Winter wedding to come!

  • Jill Ann Caputo - We Absolutely LOVE our pictures and LOVE working with you guys!!!! <3September 27, 2015 – 9:59 PM

Elizabeth + Matt’s wedding day was filled with our favorite elements: A beautiful venue at an organic farm, a drop-dead gorgeous designer dress, custom elements like their hand-drawn crest seen in key areas throughout the day, a fun cornhole contest area for their guests(!!) and more. Best of all, we spent the day with this overjoyed beautiful couple once again. There’s nothing that makes the day more pleasant than having a couple like Elizabeth + Matt put their complete trust in us so they could simply relish every moment of the day with their friends. We’re proud to be their photographers, and we genuinely hope to spend some photo time with them again in the future!

Carol is such a happy person. The biggest reason for the bright smile on her face and gleam in her eyes is her family. When her two daughters gifted her with a portrait session, we were chomping at the bit to join her children and grandchildren on Carol’s horse farm, which is set in some of the most beautiful hills of the Hudson Valley region. Our time with them was not only a celebration of family love, but also a reminder of how beautiful her home is. They have so many good memories there, and it was a joy to listen to their shared stories. Carol and her girls are as thrilled over the photos as we are! People this warm and genuine come along only rarely. We truly hope to join them again for photos in the future, wherever their roads may take them.

  • Kathleen O'Day Muller - What wonderful photos!September 4, 2015 – 9:41 PM

  • Carol Lyness Paterno - What a glorious day it was! Thank YOU, Jenni and Ulysses for the special time together. I can’t think of a better way to make the memories permanent. You two are so warm and have a wonderful way of anticipating “the shot.” Thank you, thank you!!!

    Smiles & hugs,
    CarolSeptember 4, 2015 – 5:03 PM

The day could not have been more perfect for Danielle + John’s wedding. All the elements were in place for an outstandingly gorgeous day at the beautiful Tappan Hill Mansion. Guests were greeted by one-of-a-kind view of the Hudson River as the setting Sun reflected off its mirror-like surface. You could hear their reactions as the stunning bride walked down the aisle toward John. The reception party that followed was easily just as enjoyable and emotive as everyone celebrated with the happy couple on the dance floor. This one had special meaning for us because it’s the second time we’ve joined this family on a joyous wedding occasion. We’re truly privileged to be their family’s photographers and look forward to seeing them again in the future as their families grow!

Megan + Matt’s hotly anticipated wedding day has finally arrived! If it’s possible to roll calm confidence together with barely-contained enthusiasm over one another, then it was embodied in this beautiful couple. The first thing you noticed was a Kate Spade-inspired preppy theme with lots of navy, white, gold and pink, stripes and balloons. Also on hand was an amazing vintage fire truck, a custom fireman’s axe for Matt, and and custom-tailored suits with out of this world interior lining — tailoring everything for a unique look into their lives. Most important of all, they simply gave us TIME to spend with them throughout the day for outstanding results! Though this was definitely a grand affair at the beyond-fabulous Sleepy Hollow Country Club, they never lost sight of their connections to their family and friends. It was tremendous fun photographing everyone truly celebrating the day with this beautiful couple!

  • Megan Campbell Gullo - We are sitting on the beach and we can’t stop looking at these pictures! We love every single shot. Ulysses and Jenni you were able to perfectly capture all of the love and excitement of our special day. You two are true artists and the best photographers. It was like we were with two friends casually snapping pictures. We can relive the day by looking at these gorgeous shots and for that we are so grateful! Love, Megan & MattAugust 25, 2015 – 4:31 PM

Kiki_w596Kiki + Ian are such a one-of-a-kind pair that we genuinely had to pinch ourselves when they chose us as their photographers! We’re truly gratified that they and their families are so happy with the artful and engaging photos we created from our times together. Their excitement over the results makes kind words like the ones Kiki shared that much sweeter:

Jenni and Ulysses are perfect. We loved their work before we ever knew their names, and we haven’t seen anyone do a better job of capturing, in real time, the details that make a wedding day so special. They’re able to translate movement and spontaneity through still images, all while making you and your loved ones look as vibrant and happy as ever in real life. They took time to get to know and understand us as a couple, and the proof is in the work – which is not only gorgeous but fast. Less than a week after our wedding, we were able to re-live the day through their lenses. Every couple in the world deserves to be as happy with their wedding photos as we are with ours.

Rimma + Erik first saw us in action at the wedding of their good friends, Stacey + Alen, whom we’ve photographed many times over the years. Their happy experience and genuine satisfaction with their photos and our A-list services led up to a beautiful family session with Rimma + Erik. Their adorable girls were in their own little world as they excitedly explored the garden greenery, flowers, butterflies and busy bees. They giggled with delight as their parents joined them for some fun and playtime on their perfect family day. We’re thrilled that they love the results so much!

LauraY_e014We’ve been so excited for Laura + Chris that their wedding day couldn’t come soon enough! And now that the day has flown by, we can’t say often enough just how thankful we are to know them and to have photographed this chapter of their lives. We can’t wait for the next!! It doesn’t get any better than the amazingly kind words she shared with us:

Dear Ulysses & Jenni,

Wow! It has been a wonderful journey and a long time coming! It all started when I got to meet you two at Jennie & Kevin’s Wedding. My respect for you two and your talented work grew as I saw you again at Katie & Chris’ Wedding, and then for Katie & Steve’s. By then a frienship had grown. Even when I was single, I knew that if the day would come that I’d get married, I already knew who my photographers would be…I even joked with Ulysses on facebook, that all I needed was to meet the guy! And then it happened…I met Chris smile emoticon

As soon as I showed Chris your website
and awesome photos displaying how talented you are, he couldn’t agree with me more about having you two as our photographers. Not only did we think highly of your talent, but it was the sense of comfortableness that you both gave me personally. I am definitely the type of person that “critiques” herself, especially in photos. I use to look at wedding pictures and think how beautiful these brides were and how I thought I’d feel so awkward in front of the camera. Given our history, knowing I would have you guys photograph me made me feel easier.

When Chris and I met with you for our engagement shoot, it was so natural! We had a great time…and you guys made us both feel comfortable. We loved our photos from that shoot and it gave me confidence in myself! I remembered looking at some of the pictures and thinking…wow, I look beautiful! I felt like I was looking at someone else.

Aside from taking amazing photos, you were there for us throughout the whole wedding planning process! Lord knows how many times I emailed Jenni and kept switching up the timeline! But, she kept reminding me that she was here for us in whatever we needed…and she was, every step of the way! I truly felt amazing on our Wedding Day, and I have the two of you to thank for that. Chris and I love looking through the pictures and getting to “re-live” that whole day. The moments that you captured were so real..from laughing, to crying, being silly, and just living in the moment. I’ve had so many people tell me that on my Wedding Day, I looked the happiest they have ever seen me. I was even told that while on the altar, I kept bouncing and moving like an excited kid! Lol…that’s pretty much how I felt! And I have your photos to remind me forever.

Thank you both, from the bottom of our hearts!
Laura & Chris
