Winding Hills Wedding – Molly & Erik

Molly & Erik’s Winding Hills Wedding was a day to remember. I did an engagement shoot with Molly and Erik in the spring at Winding Hills Golf Course in Montgomery NY so I got to see where their wedding reception would be. I also had the opportunity to get to know them and see them interact. That’s always something I like to do before the wedding if possible.

The day of the wedding I started at Molly’s parents house in Scotchtown NY. Everyone was ready early  and we had the opportunity to take some formal photos. We photographed the bride with her parents and sisters and with the rest of her bridesmaids at the house.

The ceremony was at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Middletown NY. The Church open and airy and the light was good. I especially liked the light streaming in through the stained glass at the back of the church. We did the family formal photos on the altar following the ceremony then we were off the the reception.

Winding Hills is an amazing place for a wedding reception. When we got there the bridal party loaded up in golf carts and we rode out to the back of the golf course where there’s an old foundation that’s lavishly landscaped. That together with the late afternoon light made for some magical pictures.

Once we were done with portraits it was off the the party. And what a party it was! With the sound laid down by none other than Dave Leonard from JTD Productions the dancing was virtually non-stop. The tent at Winding Hills was huge and the lighting was awesome so I had a great time shooting the dancing into the night.

Overall it was a great wedding and I loved that I was there to capture it all for Molly and Erik. Take a look at the photos below and leave a comment!

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.

Suzanne & Chip’s Calendar House 1773 Wedding in Elizaville NY

Columbia County Photography at Calendar House 1773 Wedding

Skip and Suzanne’s wedding at the Calendar House 1773 Wedding in Elizaville NY was a perfect rustic Hudson Valley wedding. The Calendar House 1773 is a historic location with a great view of the Catskills. The Calendar House is also a fabulous location in Columbia county for a country wedding. Puja Thomson was the officiant and with flowers by Sara Gast, catering by Hickory BBQ Smokehouse and sounds by JTD Productions it was a great evening. Below are a few of my favorite shots from their wedding.

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.)

Amy & Frank’s Mohonk Mountain House Wedding

Amy & Frank’s early fall wedding at Mohonk Mountain House was a perfect Catskills wedding. It was threatening to rain all day but the weather held off so the ceremony could be outside. It was a beautiful wedding in the garden. During the reception there was quite a thunder storm, but they say rain on your wedding day is good luck. Please enjoy the photos below.

Nick & Fran’s Mohonk Mountain House Wedding

Nick and Francine chose Mohonk Mountain House for their destination wedding. I had a chance to meet them a month or two before the wedding when they visited Mohonk to do a tasting and work on the wedding details. They have three girls who are awesome, and their youngest is the same age as my son.  That day, we got the chance to get to know each other while we walked around the property. When their wedding day came, I had a great time photographing not only the bride and groom but also their beautiful family. Below are some of my favorite photos from the day.
