Laura + Steve have an amazing relationship, and it was wonderful to witness their deep affection and commitment to one another. Their wedding day was even more beautiful than they’d imagined. With the stunning views of the lower Catskill Mountains behind them, the energy of family and friends surrounding them, and Steve’s classic red Land Rover to take them anywhere they desired, the day couldn’t have been more perfect for this awesome pair!  We’re so happy to be their photographers!

What could be better than spending a Spring day taking a stroll through iconic Central Park in the middle of NYC? Taking our time getting to know Elizabeth + Matt better gave us the perfect opportunity to see them doing what they love most — simply enjoying one another’s company in the middle of amazing NYC. We’re incredibly pumped about their upcoming farm wedding!

Caitlin + Matt came to us with so much excitement about working with us that we literally could not wait to join them for their first session with us. We loved our time for engagement photos with this fun pair! We got to know them even better as we walked through some of their favorite places to spend time. They’re just as ecstatic about the results as we are. Sessions like this are a beautiful reminder of why photography is so valuable — it opens up opportunities to create memorable and immensely enjoyable experiences that stay with you for a lifetime. We’re more eager than ever to join them for their Summer 2016 wedding at Onteora Mountain House!

We can’t say enough about how excited we were to spend the day with Laura + Chris, along with all their friends — several of whose weddings we’ve photographed! In many ways it was like a big family reunion for all of us as we watched long-time friends now joined as a family, and then hung out with them at some of their favorite places. We’re thrilled to have photographed this page of their lives, and we can’t wait to see them for the next chapter!

It was our first face-to-face with Hannah + Jeremy, when we found them people watching in Central Park as we joined them for photos. Very quickly it felt like we’d rejoined two long-time friends. Their own feelings of closeness and genuine love for one another drove this blast of a session as we explored some “secret” places in beautiful Central Park with its lush greenery. Their choice of an extended engagement session gave them the the chance to revisit the Starbucks where they had their first date. After a quick outfit change, it was then off to Grand Central Station, where it seemed completely natural to find romance in the middle of the hustle & bustle of the crowds rushing to catch their trains. They’re overjoyed with the results and are already decorating their home with their personalized pieces of art. We’re so glad to be their photographers and are eager to join them for their Autumn wedding at the breathtaking Tappan Hill Mansion.

Emma was simply the sweetest thing on our minds during one of our recent trips to Brooklyn. Her first photos with us were made even more enjoyable by the fact that we got to see and spend time with a favorite couple of ours. We’ve followed Stacey + Alen from their unique and exciting engagement photos to their wedding, and then their first child. So you can only imagine how excited we were to meet their adorable new baby girl!

Linnae was simply radiant on her wedding day. And we don’t mean only how stunning she was in her Rosa Clara wedding dress. Her smile and excitement was equally matched by Matt’s, who was eager to have her join him at the end of the aisle. Even though it showered outside, they were surrounded by the love and undivided attention of family and friends, some of whom had come all the way from India. They were carefree and trusting enough to join us for outdoor photos even if it meant walking between the raindrops. The reception crowd went wild when Matt and his former bandmates performed an incredibly fun original tune of their own from back in the day. Joyful highlights like these are just a few of the things that make us so happy to be their photographers on such a beautiful day!

Kiki + Ian’s wedding day was filled with a combination of beautiful surprises that made their event completely unique and thoroughly engaging. No doubt, their mutual experience and love for comedic improvisation gave them an easygoing and happy outlook on the day. Wedding showers just made it even more festive, as umbrellas, pashminas, and rain hoods brightened the outdoor ceremony. Days like these are definitely among our favorites for the emotion and the genuineness so clearly evident throughout the entire day.

LauraK_e058Within the first few minutes of our first meeting with Laura + Steve, we knew we needed to be their photographers. We love their beautiful connection with one another, and they love the beautiful subtleties of our work. Those same qualities were organically reflected in their engagement photos. We’re each even more excited to see one another soon for their Summer wedding at Onteora Mountain House!

Samie + Eric wished for the perfect wedding day, and that’s exactly what they got!  This stylish California couple flew into the area for one of our most eagerly-anticipated events of the year.

Give us a great-looking, fun, and excited couple like Hannah + Jared, the skylines available in Brooklyn, and a big dose of trust that we’re going to create photos you can’t possibly resist, and AMAZING things will always happen. That’s exactly the sort of day we had with Hannah + Jared. We can’t wait to join them for their upcoming wedding day!

The time has really flown by, and Baby Liam is already 12 months old! But he still hasn’t lost those smiling chubby cheeks we’ve loved so much since he was first born. We enjoyed a day of bubble blowing, flower picking, NY Rangers jerseys, and of course LOTS of photos showcasing his warm, easygoing personality. It’s no wonder his parents hearts are full of love for this little guy.

More with Kelly + Chris.

Carly’s excitement and joy over the arrival of her wedding day was positively contagious! This beautiful spring wedding was a delight, complete with sunshine, blue skies, and tons of emotion. We can’t help but love these two and can’t wait to begin photographing their family as it grows!:)

There are few greater photographic pleasures for us than to see our work go to print in published magazines. Alison + Dustin’s winter wedding was full of “vintage glamour” and plenty of delightful details inspired by the “Great Gatsby” era. Their story, style, and creative decor elements will provide you with plenty of inspiration and ideas for your own wedding event. If you’d like a printed copy of the Westchester Weddings Annual 2015 issue, you can find it on most better bookstore shelves in the Tri-State region.  The link to the online version can be found below, and we’ve also provided a PDF version for download.

We recently received an inquiry from a bride who was offered by another photographer an impossibly low price and nothing but digital product. Jenni told her about our studio, our top-quality products, our 5-star level of service, our excellent reputation and name in the region, our experience, and about enthused reviews from our awesome couples.

The bride contacted us again a few minutes later to talk more about our custom albums because she believes in things that are tangible, that will last, and that she can share and pass on to others. She also said: “There’s just something I can’t put my finger on about your work, but everyone looks so relaxed and happy.” The conversation left us with a good feeling about her. We love it when a client understands and feels the way we do — that great photography, great wall art and heirloom albums are well worth your investment! When you invest in quality, you’re never let down.

Only a few short weeks after her maternity photos, Francheska + Fernando are now the overwhelmingly happy parents of the cutest baby you’d ever want to see. He was just perfect during his very first photo shoot with us. As we hoped, Micah is a cuddle and a curler, making for ideal newborn photos for his parents’ keepsake album and prints. We’re so glad to know and photograph this loving family.

More with Francheska + Fernando.

JeanneM_album_instagramYou’ll hear us refer to certain times of the year as wedding season, engagement season, or portrait season due to the popularity of certain months for each of those types of photography. But the truth is that it’s always Album Season for us. No matter the time of year or weather, the photo session is merely the first part of the creative process for the majority of our work. The job isn’t truly finished until we’ve carefully and lovingly spent additional hours in the studio bringing your images to their final state of perfection — ready for display as wall art, gift prints, and ultimately in albums. Even in the age of the cell phone where snapshots are taken one moment and forgotten the next, albums provide the very best way to relive, share, and maintain your most important moments. That’s why we’ve become true specialists in the design and creation of this particular medium.

Do albums have a real impact? Just read the words of one of our very favorite brides for the answer:

Jenni & Ulysses,
 
After missing our package for signature and the “blizzard,” we finally received our album!!!! We are absolutely IN LOVE with it!  I literally burst into tears halfway through.:)Thanks again for everything. Can’t wait until next time!
HeartJeanne Marie & Pete

 

We agree! We can’t wait to see them for another beautiful photo session!

Even though our planning with Megan + Josh began nearly two years ago, it seems the wedding day itself was suddenly here in the blink of an eye! We found Josh by the elevator, quietly excited and a little nervous to see his bride. And Megan herself was bubbling over with anticipation at preparing to see Josh for their private reveal. She was a breathtaking sight as she walked toward Josh next to the gently flowing Hudson River, with enthused cheers of their family and friends behind them. We knew right from that moment that it was going to be a spectacular day. We’re thrilled to be their photographers!

We love photographing maternity sessions so much. Francheska has actually been a fan of our work for several years. When she and Fernando called about photographing her, we leapt at the chance! They’re a beautiful couple full of love and affection for one another. We took them to one of their dream locations and simply enjoyed a relaxing afternoon getting to know one another better. Francheska is clearly in love with the thought of meeting Baby Micah. We’re so happy to be their family’s photographers and can’t wait to meet their little guy soon!

Kinjal_e040CHOOSING A PHOTOGRAPHER

My parents were abroad vacationing when I began the wedding planning process. I was reluctant to book a photographer without consulting with my mom. But, I knew I wanted to lock in a great photographer; after all the dust settles, you have only memories and photographs to keep.  Ulysses and Jenni were the first vendors we booked and hands down the best decision we could have made.  We chose them for their incredible artistry (the pictures speak for themselves!). They made us feel right at home in front of the camera and captured every natural moment. The pictures really do tell our story.

What made Ulysses and Jenni unique as photographers is their grasp of the wedding business. They navigated all our questions with the greatest of ease and almost instantaneous responsiveness (4 months after the wedding we have our wedding album in hand!). No email went unanswered for more than a couple of hours. They set the tone for the wedding planning.

Some advice for a bride: undoubtedly, great photographs of special moments on your wedding day is a must. But, take some time to craft a great engagement session. Splurge on the location, the outfits, meaningful props, perhaps choose an extended session. This is really the time to enjoy one another before the wedding madness begins. Anil and I absolutely loved our springtime in Central Park engagement session with Ulysses and Jenni. The photographs have a casual sweetness to them and compliment the more formal shots from the wedding beautifully in our home.  Thanks, Ulysses and Jenni for our first family heirlooms!
