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

Tara_w0256_E7We love New York City and its iconic scenery! All the things we most enjoy most about NYC and its people carry that extra touch of the spectacular, take place on a grander scale, and seem somehow a little bit larger than life. When we found out the editors of Style Me Pretty were as floored by Tara + Erik’s black tie wedding as we are, we knew we had to shout about it and share it! These two really know how to celebrate in style. With the day starting at the opulent Plaza Hotel and ending at the historic Harvard Club, there was a feast for the eyes and for our cameras at every turn. Of course, Tara + Erik made us feel like family throughout the day, allowing us to put a little extra love into their breathtaking day of photography. Their Style Me Pretty story is now available, as is the full gallery of photos. There’s so much inspiration and fun to be seen, so please make sure you leave a comment for this beautiful couple!

  • Tara Moss - Thank you so much! I am honored that the wedding day was featured in Style Me Pretty! The photographs are truly the most important part of the wedding planning process – I really mean that! Because once the day is over (which happens quite fast, brides to be!), you will forever cherish the photographs of your special day. We have our gorgeous metal wedding book of photographs sitting on the coffee table… ;) Enjoy! :)March 24, 2015 – 9:40 PM

JeanneM_w448When a couple like Jeanne Marie + Peter come along with ideas and style that gels perfectly with our own for photos, we do quite the happy dance. When they knock it out of the park by giving us complete freedom and creative expression, we’re over the moon! We love these two! That’s why kind words like Jeanne Marie’s mean so much to us, and we’re so excited to share them with other brides.

We love Ulysses and Jenni!! From the very beginning we felt so comfortable with them and knew instantly we wanted them to be our wedding photographers. Well they ended up being so much more. Ulysses and Jenni became a huge part of the entire year leading up to our wedding day. Together, they create beautiful artwork. It’s like each has their own creative eye that together makes for absolutely stunning results. They are amazing at what they do and we couldn’t be more thankful! Our family and friends agree and still tell us how not only professional but personable Ulysses and Jenni were. There’s no question that we will continue to work with them in the years to come. Thank you Ulysses and Jenni! We are forever grateful for the memories you helped us create and keep.

Teryn_w0094WeddingWire_Couples_Choice_2015We recently got the exciting news that our work has been recognized for the WeddingWire.com Couples’ Choice Award 2015 — our 7th year in a row receiving this award. More than anything else, we view it as an award that comes from — our brides & grooms, our clients and our friends, most of whom we continue to keep up with long after the wedding day and well into the start of a growing family. For such great honors, we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! Without your support, reviews, and raves to others, what we do in the photographic field would simply not be possible.

We’re eagerly looking forward to making 2015 every bit as meaningful and exciting for our upcoming engagement sessions, weddings, newborn babies, family life sessions, and portraits!

For years now, Nikki + Jared have been among our favorites to photograph. They love our freestyle, relaxed artistic approach to family lifestyle photography. We truly enjoy the closeness and deep level of trust we’ve cultivated with them from their engagement and wedding and on thru their growing family. When Nikki asked us to photograph their second child, we already knew it was going to be a fantastic experience for everyone. It was no surprise at all that Baby Nathaniel was a dream to spend the day with. Even at only six days old, we could already see glimpses of his tiny personality shining through our lenses. Cuddled into the warm, loving arms of his two parents, and giggled at by his big brother, this beautiful family was the picture of perfection during this winter afternoon.:)

Kinjal_w0195We’re starting off this week with a loud BANG as we celebrate the news that Kinjal + Anil’s fabulous wedding was published by the editors of Maharani Weddings. We’re in love everything about their day —the vivid color palette, the open display of emotion throughout our time with them, and their inclusion of both Eastern and Western traditions into their wedding day. Clearly the editors are just as thrilled as we are about her details and photos. Once you’ve visited the links below, make sure you leave some comments there for the happy couple!:)

Alyssa_w386We’re always excited to see photos of our brides published in magazines. But having Alyssa’s wedding day photo and story picked up by Wedding 411 Magazine represents more than a feather in the cap for us. It’s also an affirmation of the power of determination and endurance as Alyssa worked hard to get more fit not just for the wedding day, but for life. She looks amazing! We’re so happy for both her and Alex!:)

We are nothing less than over-the-top excited about Laura + Chris! We go wayyy back with Laura, having photographed the weddings of several of her very close friends. When she told her mom years ago, “I already know who my photographers are going to be,” all she needed was for Chris to walk into the picture and sweep her off her feet. Mission accomplished! So here we found ourselves with them at a beautiful vineyard to enjoy the scenery, the wine, and the celebration of their love and devotion for one another. They’re a beautiful couple, and we’re so pumped to be their photographers! We can’t wait to join them on their wedding day, when we’ll see old friends again and meet plenty of new ones at the Venetian Yacht Club with its picturesque waterfront views.

Our time with Kerrie + Frank couldn’t have been more delightful. We joined this affectionate duo on a local family farm to get to know them better and to show them how engaging and how much fun the photo experience with us can be. As with most couples these days, they each have incredibly full schedules, so this time together was so valuable. Kerrie is simply gorgeous to photograph, and Frank gave her plenty of attention and warmth in the chilly temps. Their true love for one another was fully evident in front of our cameras as they stayed close. Plenty of farm animals also came up to greet them and kept everyone entertained. We’re very eager to join them and their families for what we know will be a beautiful wedding day at the rolling hills of the Hollow Brook Golf Club.

  • Cindi Ragan - First of all! What a beautiful setting to capture the love that Kerrie and Frank share for each other. All the pictures sum up the love and journey they are starting in their life. Ulysses Photography you captured it well. This is our son Frank whom we are so proud of. Frank has been blessed with the love of his life, Kerrie Bascomb.. Kerrie, Dan & I are so happy to have you as our future daughter in law.January 7, 2015 – 6:51 PM

Lucille + Jack’s deep love for their family is clear in everything they do. When Lucille saw some of our wedding photos, she fell in love with our relaxed style and approach and wanted something similar for her own family. Though it was cold outside, we had the warmth and comfort of their home to showcase the genuineness of their family connection. They’re thrilled with the results, and so are we!:)

Ilana_w0378

Ilana + Paul gave us what has to be one of our most enthusiastic and joyful weddings of 2014! We’re both proud and tremendously happy to have given them the sort of experience they’d heard about from other family and friends whom we had the joy of photographing. We couldn’t be more appreciative of the following kind words Ilana shared with other brides:

We love Ulysses Photography!!! First off, they are a pleasure to work with. Kind, understanding, and a lot of fun. From our first meeting, we were hooked. We were so nervous to do our engagement shoot. (Oh and VERY stressed with all of our wedding plans). Ulysses and Jenni turned our engagement shoot into a date that they photographed! We had the best time and were obsessed with the pictures. Our wedding pictures were unreal. They really captured the day (without being intrusive in any moment). Somehow, with their magical photography powers, Ulysses and Jenni caught every moment on film, without distracting from the organic moments happening. Within two weeks of our wedding, our album is already ordered!! They are talented, professional, and the results are evident in the gorgeous pictures they take.
[NOTE: Ilana + Paul made excellent use of our easy-to-use album ordering system and instructions.]

You’ll find Ilana’s amazing words shared on WeddingWire, as well many other independent reviews by some 70+ equally excited couples. Take a look at what they’re saying about their experience with Ulysses Photography!

We first got acquainted with Megan + Matt when we met them at Kara + Nick‘s amazing wedding. Even then, while they were dating one another, it was clear that these two were inseparable. When they called us about becoming their photographers, too, we had to control ourselves because that’s how excited we were (and still are)! They booked an extended engagement session with us so we could help them more fully realize the possibilities for creating beautiful art, conveying Matt’s devotion to firefighting, and even including their furry family. With the beauty of Westchester, the Hudson River, and the rolling hills of the exclusive Sleepy Hollow Country Club serving as multiple backdrops, everyone was energized and completely focused on a photo shoot that did not disappoint. We’re truly excited to be their photographers and cannot wait for their upcoming wedding at Sleepy Hollow Country Club!

We first started getting to know Danielle by way of her sister, Mallory, whose wedding to Greg we photographed. Referrals like these are thrilling because it’s more of a continued relationship than anything else. We joined them at the incredibly scenic Mohonk Mountain House, which was still in full bloom although we were now well into the autumn season. Whether taking a fun stroll together, hiking up the mountain, or even giving us a quick demo of their mutual love for crossfit workouts (yes, we were each sore the next day!), we loved each moment we got to spend getting to know them better. And everyone is absolutely thrilled with the gorgeous results from the photo session. We that much more pumped about seeing them for their wedding at the Tappan Hill Mansion.

More with Danielle + John.

Kaitlin + Ryan are two of the most fun-loving, down-to-earth, yet remarkable people we’ve had the pleasure of photographing. We felt nothing but absolute positivity throughout their entire day. Everyone’s minds — including their blast of a wedding party — were on the same page when the time came for photography. Best of all, there was complete trust, whether we were capturing unscripted images or creating art during our private time with just the two of them. What more could we ask for? We’re truly glad to be their photographers and look forward to seeing them again in the future.:)

Allison + Maurice’s wedding was stylish and unique, and perfectly reflected who they are as people. From Allison’s gorgeous fashion-forward, non-white dress, down to their customized open floor plan at one of our absolute favorite venues, their planning of the day’s details together was a true bonding experience for them. If there was an overriding theme throughout the day, it was one of friendship, camaraderie, community, and celebration. It was beautiful to see everyone’s overwhelming joy and happiness for them. We loved everything about capturing this day, and we’re so glad to be this beautiful couple’s photographers.

Ilana + Paul’s wedding day was the most sensational and celebratory day of their lives. As 300+ of their family and friends formed singing and dancing circles around them, the excitement — and the decibel level — built to an incredible crescendo during their uninhibited hora. But this was a hora like no other. The elation rose and subsided several times like a wave. It lasted longer and was more joyous than any we’ve ever seen. The entire day was likewise filled with the connectedness of family, long-time friendships, and the bonds of their culture. We could not be happier for this fantastic couple. We’re truly ecstatic to have been part of their day and look forward to seeing them again in the future.

Tara + Erik are the quintessential NYC power couple whose wedding day exemplified the ideal Manhattan dream wedding. Their wedding day was, in one word, spectacular! The day was absolutely packed with activity, starting at the famous red carpeted steps of the luxurious Plaza Hotel overlooking Central Park. We’ve never met a bride who could positively bring Fifth Avenue to a halt the way Tara could, as she exited her limo in her elegant custom-made Kim Hicks Couture gown while an enormous crowd of spectators and tourists pressed in to get a glance and snap photos of her. Following the ceremony and a brief walk through Grand Central Station, we rushed to the exclusive Harvard Club of NYC in Midtown Manhattan for cocktails, dinner, and a party like no other. There was even an artist commissioned to paint the event live at the reception! Numerous custom details were seen throughout the day, all planned and prepared by Tara + Erik with so much care and concern for their guests. Not only did we immensely enjoy our day with this warm couple, but it was also a joy to see so many familiar faces once more.

Teryn_w0799Teryn is hands-down one of the most positive and energetic brides we’ve met, and it was such a joy to photograph her wedding. She and Greg were a dream to spend time with. The editors at the premiere bridal blog, Style Me Pretty, took note of all her personalized details and projects designed to make their guests feel special. They couldn’t resist sharing this lovely look at a perfectly beautiful Westchester, NY, summer wedding. Teryn is just as overjoyed as we are to share this one, too!

Megan + Joshua came to us full of affection for one another and with lots of love for our style of photography. So when they asked for an extended session for their engagement photos, we were primed to blow them away with the experience. They were every bit as thrilled as we are with the results from this beautiful Autumn session. Whether taking a romantic stroll through one of their favorite towns or enjoying a sunset picnic in an open field, we could see their total trust in us the entire time. It was a remarkable session, and we’re even more eager to join them for their upcoming wedding at the Grandview!

Sometimes the words simply fail us when we try to post our thoughts about how much we enjoyed photographing a couple and their wedding day. Jeanne Marie + Peter are one such couple. Everything about their day went PERFECTLY. It included everything from an emotive bride and groom, to enthusiastic friends and family, to a spectacular autumn Hudson Valley view and a gorgeous sunset. What a total joy to have spent the day with them and their favorite people!

The complete gallery will be available in the “Boutique” area of our main website as soon as the couple returns from their honeymoon. Until then, we’d love to hear your comments below. And please be sure to click the button to “Recommend” us to your friends!

  • Patricia Martabano - Starting to get anxious! Haven’t felt that way in a long time ( a good week now). Your tease photos look amazing and they’re still honeymooning!! Can’t wait to the big reveal and to see you two again naturally. You made us smile the whole incredible day!October 26, 2014 – 10:37 PM

Alison kind words collage

We never tire of receiving appreciative love notes from our favorite people. When it’s from an awesome couple like Alison + Dustin, who simply put implicit trust in us from our very first meeting to their engagement session and through the grand finale of paging through their custom designed wedding album, then kind words like the ones below mean that much more to us:

Ulysses + Jenni,

We wanted to send a very overdue “Thank You” to our favorite photographers! We just could not have asked for a better duo to photograph our wedding day. We’ve been busy doing lots of repairs and improvements around our house and are finally ready to start hanging up some photos, including our engagement photo canvas! Expect a picture of our wall soon! Hope you are both doing well and can’t wait for you to photograph the next chapter in our lives, whenever that may be!

Love, Dustin & Alison

We literally cannot wait to see them again in the future as their family grows!
