Joshua moved to the Hudson Valley after living for nine years in New York City. He is surrounded by some of the most beautiful wedding venues in the United States. If you haven't found a wedding venue yet, feel free to reach out for advice in finding your farm, winery, or forest.
I will say one more positive thing that ended up being a relief for me and is often something I don't think people consider when planning weddings: Joshua handled my mother PERFECTLY. As I'm sure you know/can guess, the Mother of the Bride gets really anxious on the Big Day. When he showed up at the house where I was getting ready, she pulled him aside and spoke with him. My stomach dropped....ugh so embarrassing! But out of the corner of my eye, I watched Joshua speak with her, nodding, and presumably telling her a little bit about what he was going to do that day. She released him and he went around taking some photos. I saw him circle back with her and show my mother some photos he'd just taken. He totally put her at ease in a way that was caring and kind. I was really impressed with him in that moment-- he earned her trust so gracefully and I really appreciated that.

Throughout the day, Joshua was a steady hand and for me as the bride, that was exactly what I needed. I don't even remember seeing him or his crew at the ceremony, cocktail hour or reception. They just blended in! We've now gotten our pictures and they are AMAZING....We've ordered pictures as well and they are already framed. Everyone who sees them can't stop commenting on the quality. We highly recommend Joshua and his team!

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Joshua. Growing up with a parent who worked in photography, I had admittedly high expectations and the photographer was the first vendor I wanted to hire once we'd selected our venue. I knew I wanted someone who would capture the people and emotions of the day rather than an album of unnatural, posed photos and Pinterest-ready shots of shoes and flowers.

Joshua’s greatest strength lies in his ability to capture candid and personal moments that can’t be planned or staged. The photos we and our guests love the most from our wedding are the ones in which the people in the frame are just being themselves, enjoying the moment, unaware of the photographer. In that sense, Joshua is great about floating around the festivities, mingling with guests and not making a big show of being a professional photographer. Despite his unassuming profile, however, he managed to cover all the angles and shots we would have wanted, and then some.
We highly recommend hiring Joshua for your occasion, if you have the chance.
