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

Where do we even begin? As usual, we like to start with the people… Vicky + Tom individually are just amazing people, but together they become something else that’s undeniably electric to be around. Their wedding day at the Harvard Club of New York City held a lot of promise and did not disappoint. Vicky was just perfect in her couture gown, customized just for her. The crimson walls lent so much energy to the excitement we were all feeling, and the rain let up just enough for us to take advantage of the rooftop views. Without a doubt, this was one of our most eagerly-anticipated wedding days, and we couldn’t be happier for this beautiful pair.

If there were such a thing as “Kindest & Most Gentle Couple Toward One Another Award”, it would have to go out to Jackie + Don. Seeing their reaction to seeing one another during their brief ceremony and throughout the entire day reminded us of exactly why we love to do what we do as photographers. Their Autumn wedding day was exactly what they wanted, and we couldn’t be happier for this delightful pair and their families.

Every bride & groom’s wedding we photograph is like a celebrity event for us. And on Gab + Jon’s wedding day, they were certainly given red carpet and star treatment by everyone around them. We loved seeing the way Gab’s friends emoted around her, visibly overjoyed for her rather than enamored with their own iPhones. Jon’s buddies likewise were completely supportive and kept him laughing and relaxed right up until the time this awesome couple were ready to see one another for the first time that day. A huge congratulations goes out to this fantastic duo!

We’ll just come out and say it: We’re smitten with Sarah + Gerardo. It helps that we had them all to ourselves in one of the most scenic locations in New York’s Hudson Valley. Besides that, we were treated by everyone like a part of the family, making unobtrusive photography of this incredibly happy group of family and friends a real joy. After warm words of friendship and affection were exchanged, the ecstatic couple joined us for some photos at sunset featuring the gorgeous backdrop of the Hudson River and its rolling valley. We’re overjoyed to be their photographers, and we can’t wait to see what else the future has in store for them!

There’s nothing quite like the bucolic charm of a farm estate, with wide stretches of green pasture and the background sounds of birds and sheep calling, the way they did on the day of Katy + Andrew’s wedding. Our photos of this power couple caught the eye of the editors of Martha Stewart Weddings, and we’re thrilled to see their wedding being featured. In the words of Martha Stewart Weddings, “The couple didn’t have to look too far for a wedding venue—their dream location just happened to be their home!”

Don’t miss checking out the article and our accompanying photos! It was a gorgeous country-chic wedding!

We’ll have more with Katy + Andrew‘s wedding in the days ahead.


Carol’s horse farm is situated on a high hill bathed in natural beauty and the golden light of the Hudson Valley region. We joined her along with Jayne & Sam, who have been working on the farm for many years, for some very special portraits in their favorite spots around the estate. We couldn’t help but be in awe of the gorgeous mares they brought out to join us. Any opportunity we get to photograph such unique people and their joy in working on the land makes for a very, very good day for us.

We’ve been such HUGE fans of Katie + Steve for a long time now. Mutual friends brought us together, and we photographed their engagement photos and wedding. Now everything comes full circle for them as they wait to meet their baby. They’ve already planned the baby’s upcoming newborn shoot. In a sense we already feel so connected to their new family member after shooting Katie’s gorgeous maternity photos. It puts the biggest smiles possible on our faces to see them enter this entirely new path in life. Knowing how important family is to them and how great they both are with children, we’re sure they’re going to be complete naturals at parenting. We can’t wait to meet their new bundle once it’s time!

Enjoy their photos, and please leave a comment below for this fantastic couple and their baby soon to come!

Tanya + Rob have found the key to love, and they just fit together like hand in glove. (No rhyme intended, we promise — it’s simply true.) These two love doing things their own way. One of the earliest signs of this was when Tanya walked down the stairs towards Rob for their private reveal before the ceremony. She was nothing less than stunning in her amazing one-of-a-kind gown, and Rob’s expression said as much. They lovingly sculpted their wedding day with fun opportunities for everyone to enjoy themselves with lawn games of croquet, corn hole tossing, a giant Jenga set, and more. There were tantalizing flavors of gelato to delight everyone on the warm afternoon, and a variety of tasty cupcakes to enjoy after the delicious dinner at the uniquely rustic Bill Miller’s Castle.  Most meaningful to us was feeling treated like part of their extended family, making this a truly special occasion for our own hearts. We couldn’t be happier for them, and we can’t wait to see what awaits this awesome couple in the future!

“My heart is pounding so fast!” were the words Alex said only moments before his bride appeared on the grand staircase of the Sleepy Hollow mansion for their private first look. It was the perfect way to start their day — tender, affectionate, open, and emotive — all the qualities we love to see in a couple. And if you haven’t already taken a peek at the pictures, don’t wait another second to go check out Raissa’s ethereal Monique Lhuillier dress … perfection.

It may have been the HOTTEST day of the year, but nothing was going to prevent Amy + Doug from throwing the biggest and happiest wedding celebration possible for everyone. Amy was even more effervescent than we’ve ever seen her, with everything happening exactly as she’d envisioned it. Trained as an architect and with a deep personal skill set ranging from music to painting to prose to welding, it was a genuine pleasure photographing this beautiful artistic soul and her farmer/welder husband. Other highlights of the day included the gold wedding band Amy handcrafted for Doug, as well as a number of her own Agrisculpture creations gracing the dinner tables and other areas. With so many personalized touches seen everywhere, and a couple who trusted us to help their day go as smoothly as possible, it’s no wonder we enjoyed ourselves so much!

How often so many of us long for a simpler life, with lots of blue sky above our heads, sunlight on our skin, a cool breeze to refresh us, and the sounds of sheep / goats / chickens / turkeys in the background keeping us company. Well, that may not be their life at the moment, but those elements were part of a stunningly beautiful engagement session with Gab + Jon. Getting to know them better was at the core of a completely natural and easy-going and yet fashionable farm-chic photo session as we explored hill and dale while taking best advantage of the gorgeous day. We can’t wait to join them again for their wedding day soon at The Garrison.

We’re so glad Jackie + Don made the trip from their home down south to meet us in NY for their engagement photos. Even though we’d been corresponding by email and messages, nothing takes the place of real face-to-face time to strengthen the relationship we feel is so important between us and our couples. Their session was a beautiful one, too, with lots of refreshing farm greenery surrounding them, and a family of Standard Poodles to keep them smiling. We’re even more eager now for the next time we join them at The Rhinecliff Hotel!

Sarah + Gerardo’s engagement photos started out as a family photo session. We loved it! It gave us the perfect opportunity to get to know them better through both sets of parents, which was just perfect. And then we got to photograph them with the rest of their family — four of the most curious, fun-loving, but gentle dogs you’ll ever have the chance to meet, including three pitbulls and one shepherd mix. We knew immediately when they allowed us to be part of the their pack, too. The rest was just a romping good time in their large field of green grass. We had a truly amazing time with this affectionate couple, and we can’t wait to enjoy their wedding day at The Garrison.

When you bring more than 150 of Westchester County’s best restaurants, pastry chefs, spas, car dealers, bars, radio stations and MORE together in one location, what do you call that? Obviously, you call it the Best of Westchester Party! This landmark event for 2016 is now in the record books and Ulysses Photography was there once again as Westchester Magazine’s official photographer for the perfect Red Carpet welcome of everyone that flowed into the Glen Island Harbour Club. It’s no wonder we enjoy this event as much as everyone else. Invited guests poured in by foot and by shuttle. All of the vendors were ready with alluring aromas, delightful desserts, and tantalizing tastes to satisfy every appetite and curiosity. With plenty of food, drink, music and dancing on offer, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most eagerly anticipated annual events for Westchester residents, as well as others from the surrounding area! Congrats to Westchester Magazine and their staff for putting on yet another successful premium event!

Each time we join Sam and his family, we know we’re in for an incredibly energetic and enjoyable ride! Even though we keep in touch with this incredible family during the span of time we aren’t face-to-face, there are always meaningful and happy surprises as we get reacquainted with them again — especially with Sam, who is growing faster than any of us can keep up with. A walk through the remarkable scenery of a historic setting in the Catskills was the only other thing we needed for perfectly relaxed family portraits.

And into the ocean we went! Our favorite days are when we’re given complete creative license to do what we love; our favorite couples are people like Maryellen + Dave, who simply trust us completely while enjoying one another at the happiest time of their lives. Their two-day extravaganza was filled with the gorgeous sights and sounds of the ocean, beaches, and cliffs of Montauk, NY. It was like being on the most beautiful edge of the world as Maryellen + Dave smiled and spoke their vows in front of all their closest people. If we could have spent another day or two with our hosts, we certainly would have — it was like a big reunion for us because we’d photographed Maryellen’s brother’s wedding, and we’ll also photograph her sister’s upcoming wedding. It’s a huge plus when we’re surrounded by so many familiar friendly faces and to be included as one of the family.

There are few things more enjoyable than following some of our favorite people through various stages and joys of life. That’s what we got to do with Baby Maddie and her grandparents. Watching them walk, play, and laugh with her showed us just how much they’re enjoying life with their beautiful family. Grace + Mike’s adorable little girl, now nearly two years old, is getting smarter, faster, and more lovable than ever. So it was a perfect time to see family affection in action during our afternoon with this lovely family.

When we say that Rose + Mike are the perfect pairing of heart and mind, the words don’t do justice the depth of their relationship. Their reveal was just as fun and unique as their personalities. Their wedding day in the lush color-rich gardens of Feast Caterers at Round Hill House was an unforgettable experience for everyone there. Their choices in decor and attention to seemingly minor details ensured that everyone felt truly special as guests invited to this gala event. We can’t express enough how glad we are to be their photographers!

  • Peter Kupersmith - These photographs just underscore how brilliant your talents are and how beautifully you captured the Rose and Mike’s wedding and their love for each other. You never fail to amaze me!July 13, 2016 – 4:00 AM

  • Rose Marash - As always, we can’t stop talking about how much we love you both and how great you are not only as photographers, but also as people. You’ve impressed us in so many ways, from how comfortable you made us feel during photoshoots to how professional you remained when photographing throughout the day. Not only were you there to photograph, but also to make sure my dress as looked as flawless as possible! Your experience with weddings shined on our big day and we are so grateful for that! Whether it was making sure my dress fit well, or orchestrating a flawless photoshoot before the wedding with time to spare, we knew we could trust you both to be there when we needed you most. We also recieved so many compliments on how you both worked so seamlessly without getting in the way of anything while capturing so many timeless moments.

    Ulysses and Jenni, thank you so much for not only capturing memories to last a lifetime, but also for being there to help us celebrate. We couldn’t have asked for a better couple to help us remember such an amazing day in our lives!July 8, 2016 – 12:26 AM

  • Marissa Marash - How soon? How soon?! Oh well, guess I’ll just have to enjoy these beautiful pictures for now.July 7, 2016 – 1:00 PM

Our favorite days in NYC are when we have an affectionate couple who’s willing to walk and explore with us, and to simply trust us. That’s exactly what we found in Raissa + Alex. Everything about them told us how much they love one another and how excited they were to meet us for the first time. The light and atmosphere of Central Park was perfect as we visited some of their favorite spots and discovered some new ones, as well. They’re every bit as enthused over the results as we are. Their wedding at Sleepy Hollow Country Club is on track to be a splendid day, and we can’t wait to join them!

Jacqueline + Jae make it incredibly easy to get swept up in the moment. Between Jackie’s effervescent energy and Jae’s steady strength and positivity, we knew we had the ideal couple who would simply “escape” with us into their photography. This beautiful duo shares a lot of laughs, but they also aren’t afraid to be romantically in the moment together. This all bodes quite well for our upcoming day with them at Skylands Manor.

More with Jackie + Jae.
