Hudson Valley Wedding Photographers

Your wedding is not our “content.” In a world increasingly run by algorithms, authentic candid photography is being replaced by the pursuit of likes and “engagement.” Almost all photographers in the Hudson Valley have incredible cameras and Ai tools to make beautiful photographs for you. Not all of them can capture moments and storytelling images. Make sure that you’re hiring a photographer who is there to make photos for you and not their feeds. 

Joshua’s top priority is capturing as many different faces as possible on your wedding day as unobtrusively and efficiently as he can. The images you get back should be warm and organic, but not overly processed. Fundamentally, he believes the story of your love is the foundation of the day. While you will be the center of attention, it is not entirely about you and your wedding photos should reflect that. 

The Hudson Valley is an unbelievably beautiful place to have a wedding, and you’re going to look great, but your photographer must have the skills to really capture the essence of your day beyond the most obvious. Joshua and his team are unmatched in their ability to capture unposed moments that will make you feel something as you look at them decades from now while telling a story through the expressions of your closest friends and family.

Our Favorite Weddings

We hope you’ll take a moment to browse through a few of our favorites and get a sense of what types of images we feel tell a full wedding story. You’ll see a few detail shots, you’ll see some posed photos requested by moms, and you’ll see some tears. We hope this gives you a better sense of the kinds of images we consistently produce in some of the top wedding locations in the Hudson Valley and Catskills.

The weddings above represent some of Joshua’s favorite couples in some of his most often photographed locations in the Hudson Valley. He is a preferred vendor at many of these venues and happy to share his experiences if you haven’t chosen one yet. If you’re still looking for a venue, check out our Hudson Valley wedding venue guide or give Joshua a call anytime.

About Joshua

Joshua stands in the glow of sunlight through surrounded by hanging moss and tropical leaves.

Joshua is a photographer and filmmaker with over 25 years of wedding experience, based in New York’s Hudson Valley.

He is a former photojournalist from Tennessee who brings an unobtrusive and calm demeanor to every wedding. Although he primarily works in the Hudson Valley now, he has shot weddings all over the globe. He is capable of shooting both photos and videos for you. He is passionate about his community in Newburgh and spends a lot of time hiking with his family and his rescue dogs Skillet and Gravy. He cares more about capturing genuine moments between you and your  friends and family than getting himself on another Pinterest board. He will never be an influencer and he is totally at peace with that.

The days of waiting weeks or months for wedding photos are long gone. You will generally have your all of your photos back within a couple days thanks to the magic of Ai.

25 Years of Experience

Joshua knows where to be to capture moments. He makes images for you, not his Instagram feed. His relaxed and unobtrusive approach will put you at ease even when the timeline goes off the rails.

Low Light Specialist

Joshua excels in low light that can really be a technical challenge for many. He uses the latest technology to capture the romantic mood as you remember it, all without a flash or video light.

Moments Over Content

Weddings are more than posed pictures of the couple and their pretty stuff. Joshua’s portfolio is full of genuine candid moments, not a thousand photos of the dress hanging in the doorway.

Timeless Images

Joshua’s post-production and composition techniques are timeless. He is not going to force you into never-ending poses. Your photos should not be dated by their postproduction style.
