The Hudson Valley Wedding Photographers
Victoria and Allan Levine
Welcome to our blog. Have a look at some of our Real Hudson Valley Weddings.
First Look Wedding Photos: Peekskill Train Station - Hudson Valley, New York
Dacia & Chris had there First Look Photos at the Peekskill Train Station in Hudson Valley, New York. Typically Wedding Reception Venues in the Hudson Valley will allow for a half hour Ceremony, one hour cocktail hour and four hour reception. Because this is only Five and a half hours, a way to maximize time with guests is to do the majority of the photos before the Ceremony.
First Look Photos are a great thing to consider doing when a couple is having their Ceremony & Reception at the same Location. Couples will sacrifice nothing when we arrange their "First Look" to be a special moment when they see each other and capture those beautiful expressions of surprise when they see one another. Dacia & Chris chose this location because it has special meaning to them. We love being able to incorporate personal meaning into the photographs.

A black and white image at Locust Grove. I don't usually turn a lot of Locust Grove images to Black and white, but in this case it seemed like it was meant to be. This is one of my favorite wedding venues in the Hudson Valley.
Here are Theresa and her Bridesmaids at The Garrison. It was a bright beautiful summer day in June and I feel like I was there when I look at this image and others from Theresa's wedding. Your wedding day happens fast, so savor every minute of it. Hopefully you'll remember some of the days sensations when you look at your wedding photos.
Here are Tom and his guys at the Lippincott Manor. This is one of my favorite groom portraits from last year. The sun is right behind the guys just out of the image and lighting up the field. I didn't want a silhouette, so we used a few off camera strobes to catch up to the sun.
For the Camera & in General: The hidden power of smiling
Capturing a person's genuine smile in a photo is important because it presents their best self. That crinkle around the eye or or that glint of light & life communicates volumes about who that person is. Here is a very interesting talk given by Ron Gutman on the Hidden power of smiling:
