#1-photographer-in-the-hudson-valleySteven – fotograf extraordinaire and owner of Blue Sky Photography, LLC. He’s likable, likes to keep things simple, stress free and is a consummate professional – is also easily tamed by feeding him toffee covered almonds. Loves his 50mm prime lens, Kettle One Vodka, natural light photography, outdoor weddings, tented weddings, barn weddings, estate weddings, DIY brides, non traditional brides, the LGBT community, fireworks and everyone who thinks LOVE is a big deal. Educated in Cambridge, trained in New York – he has over twelve years and 600 weddings under his belt. He’s a creative, award winning photographer who’s also a member of the American Society of Professional Photographers, the Professional Photographers of America, the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, the Fearless Photographers Group and a member of the Chamber of Commerce Legislative Action Committee. He’s won numerous “peer” reviewed awards as well as Wedding Wire’s Couple’s Choice Awards* and annually supports The Make-a-Wish Foundation, American Cancer Society, research on Parkinson’s and the Sparrow’s Nest. His works are published in print media and online. Steven says, “The most important thing you need to know about me is that after my work day is over, I turn off my phone and I go home to my family. The world is wired into Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, text messages, emails, voice mails, You tube, blogging, micro blogging and Flickr 24/7, but I’m not that guy. I’m all too familiar with the pain and heartache of growing up without a father, and I refuse to have my son experience what I did. Other than that – I really do love to smile, crack jokes and be adventurous. I like to keep things simple and stress free. I enjoy jazz, country, rock n roll, techno, hip hop, dance, fishing, snowboarding and racing motorcycles. I’ve been a full time photographer for the last 12 years. I eat, sleep and breath photography.”
Nicole pro photographer in Hudson ValleyNicole – nothing gets her down, she’s laughs at everything and is a joy to be around.  She says she likes to create photographs that tell stories, that every love is a different and no two weddings are the same. Her style is more documentary and she prefers to use as much natural light as possible. She’s been trained to look for the details, special moments, colors, family, tears, happiness, smiles, excitement, time, and emotion. This is Nicole’s fourth year in the wedding photography industry – she no longer carries apprenticeship status – as she quickly became one of the Hudson Valley’s premiere professionals to watch.
Ashley-photographer-Hudson-ValleyAshley – a known jet setter, we first caught up with Ashley when she was photographing destination weddings in the Caribbean – as if hanging at the beach is work. Now relocated to Kingston, we’re lucky to have her. She’s extremely talented, easy going, communicates well and knows how to handle the pressures of a wedding day. A Canon girl herself, she has all the gear you can think of, plus back up equipment in case of main equipment failure.
Charlie-the-Bassett-HoundCharlie – a ferocious breed of dog (not), one look into Charlie’s eyes and you know not to mess with him. A fierce competitor, he also exhibits exceptional qualities of loyalty, obedience, pulling power and smarts. Second only to the Bloodhound, the Bassett Hound has unprecedented ability to smell. Charlie’s long floppy ears brush against the ground as he walks, knocking scents into the air allowing him to track prey for miles. Charlie is currently single and looking to mingle.
