New Paltz Wedding of Kate & Jereme

Reformed Church of New Paltz Wedding and Magnanini Winery Wedding Reception

Kate and Jereme’s New Paltz wedding was a picture perfect day in Ulster County. They were married in the Reformed Church of New Paltz on Huguenot Street. The Church is light and airy so I had a great time shooting in there. Historic Huguenot Street is a wonderful location for a wedding. There were many photographic options for portraits following the ceremony so we just walked around the historic buildings. I think the photos have a timeless feel to them because of the setting.

The reception was at Magnanini Farm Winery in the Hamlet of Wallkill. I had never been there before but I was blown away by the scenery and atmosphere. It feels like an Italian Villa, right in the middle of the Hudson Valley. It’s a very authentic Italian winery and the dinner was served family style and was excellent. It’s so Italian in fact that they make their own Grappa! I didn’t try it, but it’s on my list to return for a tasting one day. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the day. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Karin and A.J. decided to celebrate their fifteenth anniversary by having a Mohonk Mountain House vow renewal ceremony at Mohonk Mountain House. Rev. Diane help them to create a ceremony that was meaningful to both them and their four children. It was a wonderful ceremony and clearly was as meaningful to their children as it was to them. Below are some of my favorite photos of their Mohonk Mountain House vow renewal.

Catskills Wedding Photographer – Best of 2012

Catskills Wedding Photographer Keith Ferris Photo

I have the say that 2012 was a great year to be a Catskills Wedding Photographer. I photographed so many great weddings throughout the Hudson Valley and Catskills. I shot weddings in reception halls and in barns. I shot wedding’s out of doors. I had a great time at each and every one. I pulled together some of my favorite shots from 2012 for a slideshow. This is by no means a definitive collection since I shot tens of thousands of images, but just a selection of some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them. Please also explore the rest of my blog for more examples of my most recent work (hint: use categories and search words to find what you’re looking for.)

Mount Gulian Wedding – Melissa & Doni

Mount Gulian Wedding – Melissa & Doni

I’ve known Melissa since college where we graduated from the same photography program. It’s always a great compliment to me when another artist or photographer asks me to shoot their wedding. It’s also a great responsibility and makes me a little nervous, but I like to use it as a challenge to make fantastic images. They live in Brooklyn but I had met Doni a couple of times before and I knew that he was a really easy going and down to earth guy. When I heard about their Mount Gulian wedding plans I couldn’t wait.

Melissa contacted me in the spring about her fall Mount Gulian wedding. No problem, plenty of time to plan a wedding. One caveat; she was planning on hiking the entire Appalachian Trail with her dad and would be off the grid all summer. Despite logging some serious miles in the months prior to her wedding Melissa and Doni managed to throw a terrific party with plenty of hand made touches at Mount Gulian Historic Site in Beacon, NY. Bridge Creek Catering did a fantastic job with the setup, the food and the service. Overall it was a great wedding and I’m happy to have shared this special day with one wonderful couple.

Alissa & Mike’s Mohonk Wedding

Alissa and Mike contacted me about their intimate wedding at Mohonk and I was hooked. Rather then have everyone they know come to the wedding they decided that they would just have close family for a weekend at Mohonk Mountain House and then have a big reception party in their hometown in Pennsylvania. They chose Mohonk because of their love of nature and the outdoors. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding, perfect in every way.
