Hudson Valley Wedding and Portrait Photographer | » Peter Demuth Photography

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!

I absolutely love setting up a photo booth at the Hudson Valley Hullabaloo! It’s completely different from when I set them up at weddings because then my assistant gets to have all of the fun with the booth! The slogan for the Hudson Valley Hullabaloo is “Where Arty Meets Party” and they are absolutely right about that. It is a super well curated craft fair in the up and coming city of Kingston NY that also has a DJ and some amazing local food vendors. The weekend is so much fun it’s ridiculous. I basically dance for two days straight. This year we opted to go with a bright backdrop with crafted birch trees and various forest creatures here and there. We also rented an amazing bear costume from one of my favorite local stores (Columbia Beauty Supply… the best costume and wig shop around). We took almost 2000 over the course of the weekend and I’m sure a lot of families had super amazing holiday cards to send to their loved ones 🙂

A late fall afternoon, crisp air, warm light dancing through leaves and branches, and a great couple. Who could ask for anything more? In case there was any doubt, I loved walking around the lovely grounds at Vassar College with Caroline and Dan. Engagement sessions are such a great way to spend time and get to know each other. After spending some time at Vassar, we drove a little bit down the road to their house where I was treated to a beautiful backyard with a meadow and an amazing stream where Dan likes to fish in the summer while Caroline chills and reads.
