Their Review:

Megan and Kenneth have been our go-to photographers for many moments of our relationship. Years before we got married, they photographed us in a staged shoot and made such an impression that we hired them 2 years later for both our engagement and our wedding.

The photos they capture bring out so much more than the obvious beauty of the moment. Somehow, they evoke emotion so effortlessly. The only time you remember they are even photographing you is when they are complimenting you & hyping you up.

What I love even more is that they pop over to show you how good you look on camera. There is no time to feel self-conscious when they are behind the camera because they make sure you feel as good as you look.

Some of our favorite things about them include:

There are two of them!!! Which means more perspective and better shots.
They have such an insane eye for detail and creative vision. You can just focus on being present, knowing they’ve got it handled.
Can't stress this enough: the hype. They make you feel like the main character of your life.
The finished product!! They can walk the walk. Their photos are just stunning. Their editing style feels natural and vibrant but also tailored to the couple they photograph.
Their generosity. They feel like more than photographers in the room. They become your friends and your cheerleaders. Never in a million years would I have imagined that my guests would still be talking about our incredible photographers months after our wedding, but people remember them!! They remember how much fun they are, how kind they are, how freaking cool they look while they're trying to get different angles of the shot.

Our wedding will definitely not be the last time we work with them. We can't recommend them more highly. They are indeed the best investment you can make for your day. 100 out of 10.

What They Wanted:

"We are very comfortable on camera, especially with you two. If all of our portraits are looking like extreme excitement, please remind us to lean into the softness and intimacy - Sara definitely wants a photo basking."

About the Session:

Sara & Sumaya's engagement session was used for Sara to counter-propose to Sumaya. This beautiful moment was captured on a sunny summer morning in the park.

Sara brought Sumaya to the park for a morning coffee, where she surprised Sumaya by getting on one knee in this special spot to their relationship.

They had a few friends hiding nearby who helped us coordinate with location sharing and ensuring this sneaky proposal was pulled off perfectly. After the question was popped, we used a bit of time for these two to get comfortable in front of the camera before their big day.

We love to use engagement photos as an opportunity for couples to train with us in front of the camera. Since we'd already photographed these two in the past, this felt like even more of a bonus to get these two feeling amazing prior to their walk down the aisle.

About 4x5 Film:

The premium choice for wedding film photography, 4x5 photography, offers couples a unique opportunity to pause and cherish their time together. This medium-format film choice is a particular area of expertise for Kenneth, who employs a large format camera to capture the most exquisite moments for reflection.

The images produced boast remarkable detail, allowing for large-scale prints or to be appreciated as the stunning captures they are.

At present, this service is exclusively offered to couples opting for photography alone, due to its more large-format nature. Our goal is to comprehensively document your special day, regardless of the formats selected.

Their Review:

Best wedding decision ever! Our Brooklyn wedding experience with Megan and Kenneth was more than we could've ever hoped for. They are so warm, fun, professional, skilled, personable, generous, and true masters of their craft!

If you want to feel encouraged, beautiful, safe, and supported on your big day, I could not recommend these two amazing humans enough! On top of making you feel your absolute best on such an important day, the their work is breathtakingly beautiful.

We have over 1000+ photos and it's nearly impossible to pick and choose our favorites because every photo is stunning and truly captures the love and joy from our day. And let me tell you about the wedding film they produced! We cried, we laughed, cried some more, all while our jaws were on the floor. Our hearts were bursting!

We loved working with them so much that we're doing another photoshoot with them in upstate New York!

And you can be sure that we'll book them again for any and all future big events. Thank you so much Megan and Kenneth!!!

What They Wanted:

"For photos, we're going for a "Brooklyn" (if that makes sense) and romantic vibe. For videography, we love the slow panning, candid, slow motion type of cinematography. We've seen all these traits in your work!"

Their Review:

Megan & Kenneth made sure that things went better than we could have ever imagined or hoped for. They were the friends, body guards, and cheerleaders we never knew we needed on our wedding day.

We are not huge photo people, but we felt excited for all 2000+ photos taken on our wedding day. Their organization and direction relieved any stress that we were feeling about making sure everyone got a personal shot if they wanted one. Aside from that, they made sure we were catered to throughout the whole event with beverages and constant check ins.

They blended into the crowd, so it never felt like paparazzi in our faces - the photos came out perfect and natural, exactly what we wanted! The wedding video was beyond anything we could have hoped for and the perfect way to look back on our day.

What They Wanted:

"We are most ourselves when we are laughing. Some documentary style, some blurred, just lots of photos showing us having fun and laughing and dancing!"

We’re Megan & Kenneth, Hudson Valley wedding photographers. We absolutely love what we do in every corner of the Hudson Valley. Not only that, but we also travel throughout Westchester, Tarrytown, and other locations in Upstate New York and the Northeast for weddings. As a couple, capturing other couples is our passion.
Ulster County Wedding Photo and Video Team
We work as a Upstate New York wedding photo and video team to capture special memories for couples on their wedding day. Traveling through the picturesque region, including Westchester and Tarrytown, we are experienced top wedding photographers. We want to make your day as comfortable as possible. Our candid wedding photography style reflects the natural and relaxed atmosphere we create for our couples.
Westchester Wedding Photographers Capturing Candid Moments
Based in Westchester, we love photographing in iconic locations throughout the Hudson Valley. Some of the most popular photo spots in the area include scenic landscapes, historic landmarks, and charming venues. That’s not to say we don’t photograph everywhere, because we certainly do! We adore capturing weddings from beautiful estates to rustic barns.
Beacon Wedding Photographers Working as a Married Couple
We are a photography and videography team, capturing all angles of your wedding day. As a married couple, we understand what couples desire for their own wedding day. When it came to our special day, we wanted both photography and video, but without a full wedding videography team. That’s how we developed our wedding photo and video team based in the Dutchess County.
Engagement Photography in the Hudson Valley
We also include a complimentary engagement shoot in every wedding photography package. Having an engagement session in the Upstate New York is an essential part of building a relationship with our couples. It allows them to get comfortable with us behind the camera and provides an opportunity for us to teach posing techniques and prompts, ensuring candid and authentic Ulster County wedding photos.
Relaxed Wedding Photography for Couples Who Love Candids
We’re a Beacon wedding photographer team that aims to make your day as effortless as possible. We understand that you have many things to consider on your special day, so why stress about getting your Hudson Valley wedding photos done? We strive to be the most comfortable and seamless part of your wedding day experience.
Hybrid Wedding Photography and Videography for Dutchess County Celebrations
We don’t work solely as one photographer and videographer. Instead, we employ a hybrid style, capturing the most possible angles from both of our perspectives. While taking photos throughout the important moments of your wedding day, we seamlessly switch to video to capture snippets of the occasion.
Wedding Photo and Video Combo Team in the Upstate New York
This approach allows us to create beautiful photos and video moments on your wedding day. These moments are compiled into a highlight reel-style video, typically four to six minutes long, capturing the best and most memorable parts of your day. It’s all about preserving the special touches, emotional expressions, hugs, and kisses that might not translate the same way through photos alone.
Top Hudson Valley Wedding Photographers
You may wonder about our experience in this field, and the answer is: we have been doing this for a long time! Megan has been photographing weddings since she was fourteen years old and has also explored career opportunities in fashion and tech. We have been photographing weddings together for a considerable time because we discovered our love for weddings when we tied the knot ourselves.
Candid Wedding Photography in the Ulster County
As wedding photographers in the Beacon, we know it can be challenging to make decisions regarding your wedding. There are countless venues and vendors to choose from in the region. However, as Hudson Valley wedding photographers, we know one thing for sure: your wedding photos are one of the few enduring elements of your wedding day.
Experienced Westchester Wedding Photographers
Our blend of candid and fine art photography ensures that couples have everything they need on their wedding day. We capture the formal wedding portraits, but also focus on candid and enjoyable moments. Rather than rigid posing, we prefer to provide prompts that elicit natural reactions. While many photographers in the Upstate New York focus on posing, we find that prompts create more authentic and spontaneous photos.
Number One Hudson Valley Wedding Photography Team
As one of the top Dutchess County wedding photography companies, we are thrilled to capture wedding days throughout New York State. We also love photographing weddings in neighboring states, including Connecticut, Long Island, Rhode Island, Vermont, and New Jersey. We are always happy to travel beyond the state borders to capture beautiful wedding photos and candid moments.
Comfortable Wedding Photos for All Couples
We are a team of Beacon wedding photographers and videographers who are dedicated to making your day unforgettable. We create beautiful, natural, and candid shots throughout the day, using our artistic creativity while capturing every minute. We are passionate about what we do and are excited to share our work with you!
LGBTQ+ Friendly Wedding Photographers in the Ulster County
We recognize that queer couples are often underserved in the wedding industry. They may face discrimination, harassment, and limited options due to a lack of diverse vendors who are queer-affirming. We want to ensure that all our couples feel represented and safe with our wedding photography team. We are committed to providing an inclusive and supportive experience for all.
Supporting Diversity and Inclusion in the Wedding Industry
We believe in creating beautiful imagery for anyone in love. Everyone deserves access to vendors who affirm their identities and stories, partnering with them to create gorgeous imagery for their wedding day. We stand with the Black Lives Matter movement and believe it is crucial to feature a diverse array of couples on our website, social media, and in our wedding portfolio.
Hiring a Professional Wedding Photo and Video Team for Your Upstate New York Wedding
Many people underestimate the importance of hiring a skilled wedding photographer until it’s too late. Having a talented Hudson Valley wedding photo team is vital to capture every precious moment you want to remember forever.
Reliving Your Hudson Valley Wedding Day Memories
Your Dutchess County wedding photographer should have a keen eye for capturing the best shots of your special day. These photos will allow you to relive those moments over and over again, whether in digital format or through wedding photo albums. Wedding photographers can capture memories that will forever remind you of your wedding day and the love you shared.
Building Lasting Memories for Your Wedding Day
A professional wedding photographer can capture the most touching moments of your big day, including the vows you share, first dances, family portraits, and more. Beacon wedding photographers can create meaningful memories, capturing candid photographs from different angles and in various outfits.
Choosing Your Upstate New York Wedding Photographer
There are many different types of wedding photographers in the Ulster County to choose from. When deciding on your wedding photographer, you have various choices to consider, such as their specialty in capturing candid and fun moments, documentary-style photography, formal portraits, or even shooting film or instant photos.
Considerations for Your Hudson Valley Wedding Photography
Some couples opt for big-box wedding photography studios, while others prefer the personalized touch of a mom-and-pop wedding photography service in the Hudson Valley. Each option has its benefits and it's important to find a photographer that aligns with your vision and priorities.
Photographing Wedding Venues All Over the Beacon
We have loved photographing a wide range of wedding venues throughout the Dutchess County. Some examples include breathtaking estates, historic landmarks, and charming barns. We have captured weddings in venues like Wave Hill, Liberty Warehouse, and many other classic Hudson Valley wedding locations.
Capturing the Best Day of Your Life
A good wedding photographer can capture every detail of your wedding day, helping you create the most beautiful memories of your life. Your photos will allow you to revisit and cherish those moments forever. Our Upstate New York wedding photography team is the best choice to capture those important moments in your life. We work together to ensure that your photos and videos seamlessly complement each other.
Combining Beacon Wedding Photography and Videography
The perfect way to ensure full coverage of your special day is to have both photography and videography. Wedding videographers in the Ulster County capture every moment, as it's impossible to capture every second of the day in photographs alone. Video highlights and captures all the important and special moments in detail.
