Hudson Valley Wedding and Portrait Photographer | » Peter Demuth Photography

I was super excited for Brittany and Andrei’s wedding even during our initial meeting. We discussed all sorts of details about their Locust Grove Poughkeepsie wedding. They are such fun and genuine people I knew their wedding would be amazing. After getting to know them a bit better during their engagement session I was even more excited!

Their wedding took place at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie NY. It’s one of my favorite places to photograph Hudson Valley weddings because of the immense natural beauty there, the sprawling grounds, and all of its history. Some people may not know that Samuel Morse (whose house is at Locust Grove) was one of the founders of American photography. He learned the daguerreotype process directly from Louis Daguerre in France. He then took what he learned to America and taught the process to acclaimed photographers such as Matthew Brady (whose photographs of the civil war are an amazing document of the time).

I had such a great time documenting Brittany and Andrei’s wedding. It was such an honor (as it always is!) to be around such genuine and fun people in love!

Oh and the amazing flowers bouquets were created by the talented folks at A Night In Bloom. Check them out!


I really can’t say enough about the benefits of having a photo booth at your wedding reception. Every single time I’ve set one up, family and friends have had a tremendous time with them. Sometimes they take serious or silly pictures but they are always so much fun. I always bring tons and tons of fun props for guests to use. If you’re getting married anytime soon, you should definitely consider having one at your reception! They also are great for parties!


Mary + Jeff were married on a beautiful summer day. Their ceremony took place at Sacred Heart Church in Newburgh, New York and their reception was held at Meadow Brook Lodge in New Windsor, New York. Mary didn’t want any photos of preparation so I started right with the ceremony. Their reception was filled with so many beautiful speeches, great music, and good times.

They also opted to have a photo booth at their reception, which as you might know, is an awesome choice! Super fun and always memorable, the photo booth is a great way to capture all your guests, old and young, in an alternative and fun way. Stayed tuned for those photos!

I was so happy that Caroline and Dan hired me to document their beautiful Nostrano Vineyard wedding! I’ve been stalking checking out weddings there for a while now and their grounds and environment are truly among the very best that the Hudson Valley has to offer. Although their wedding day morning started out pretty rainy the clouds cleared away making for a gorgeous day. Caroline and Dan are such fun and amazing people and loved every second of their day 🙂

Everything at Nostrano Vineyards was so beautiful, I can’t wait to go back!

I adore this Roundhouse Beacon engagement session! I’ve photographed weddings and engagement sessions at the Roundhouse Beacon before and absolutely love it there! Beacon is a perfect little city commuting distance to NYC and there are so many amazing shops and restaurants, not to mention the natural beauty that the Hudson Valley is known for. It’s an old Hudson River industrial town too so there are remnants of the cities past which have been progressively converted into really great spaces. There are so many Hudson River towns like this and it’s great to see Beacon doing so well. Anyway, I had a wonderful time meeting Julie and Greg at the Roundhouse where we got a drink and discussed their wedding plans. We then ventured around the town making beautiful images. Can’t wait for their wedding!

Brittany and Andrei wanted their engagement session in Beacon NY. They researched a couple of places and found Madam Brett Park. It’s a beautiful park along the Fishkill Creek that also houses a rather large abandoned industrial age mill which powered a bunch of hat factories (which helped Beacon once earn the honor of “New York’s Hat Making Capital”!). Anyway, Brittany and Andrei loved the mix of industrial/nature and old/new. And I really loved getting to know them a bit better, discussing their wedding, and exploring a new place in the Hudson Valley!

I thought it was a wonderful idea to meet Allison and Jason at the beautiful Copake Country Club for their engagement session. They are getting married there in October and as I’ve never been there is was a terrific way to not only see the beautiful property and hear about their wedding plans, but to also get to know them a bit better. It was a great afternoon!
