Paul and Brenda Love Winter Weddings!

Winter Wedding in Upstate NYWe’re going to let you in on two little secrets: First, we LOVE shooting winter weddings. Seriously! Second, we never get enough of them. So we’re encouraging you to book your winter wedding photography with us, by offering some very attractive packages.

Our winter wedding season runs from November 15, 2014 through May 3, 2015

Here are three irresistible wedding photography packages that include everything you need, at incredibly good prices that will put a smile on the face of whoever is writing the checks for your wedding. A really BIG smile!

The “All the Basics Included” Winter Wedding Photography Package: $1795

  • Two highly experienced, full-time professional wedding photographers (Paul Grupp and Brenda Rose; not some no-name, learn-on-the-job “associate photographers”) for up to seven consecutive hours on your wedding day — measured from the time we arrive at the first location, to the time we leave at the end. Additional hours may be purchased at $199/hr, payable on or before the day of the wedding. If for any reason, the wedding lasts a shorter period of time than hours purchased, there is no refund or credit for unused hours.
  • Unlimited number of shots taken. Typically 1500+, but varies widely depending on your planned activities for the day.
  • All delivered images (usually 500-800) receive (as needed) RAW conversion, color correction, cropping, brightness/contrast. sharpening etc. In addition, selected images at the photographer’s discretion will receive additional artistic treatments — filters, black and white conversion, light retouching, etc.
  • Online posting of final set of images in an online gallery (in high resolution with no watermarks or logos, with ability to view and/or download any or all the photos at no charge (that means FREE!) and order prints online at prevailing prices). Gallery is available for at least one year.

This package represents a savings of over $600 compared to our “peak season” pricing, and is available ONLY during the winter wedding season for $1795. Because there is no delivery of tangible items like books or a USB drive, there is no sales tax, even for NY State residents! Add a USB thumb drive, and this package is $1849 + 8% NYS Sales Tax, for a total of $1996.92 (if delivered to an address in New York).

 

The “Smart Shopper” Winter Wedding Photography Package: $2195

Kerry and Thomas’ Wine Country Wedding!

We have done lots of weddings in the Finger Lakes Region and just love the relaxed country feel there, so we were super excited when Thomas and Kerry contacted us for their wedding at the Cayuga Ridge Winery. The winery is in Kerry’s hometown of Ovid NY, just minutes from the home she grew up in. She and Thomas now live outside Washington DC, close to Thomas’ family who all made the trip north for the wedding festivities. It was a gorgeous day for a wedding; sunshine, blue skies and happiness. Here’s a sneak peek at some of our favorites from their wedding day! Want to see more? Click here.

One last look at our fabulous 2012 brides!

As we look forward to beginning our 2013 wedding season in the next few weeks, we want to take one last affectionate look back at our fabulous brides of 2012! Not only was 2012 one of our busiest wedding seasons, but we had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful couples! Here are some of our favorite images of our beautiful 2012 brides. Enjoy!

Kip and Kate get married in New York!

Kip and Kate came over from Wales with a few close friends and family, and had the most remarkable mid-January Central Park wedding.

When Kip first contacted us last October about their wedding plans, as you can imagine, as long-time New-Yorkers Brenda and I were terrified about what weather they might find when they arrived here in the middle of January.

We shouldn’t have worried. Along with their friends and family, they brought enough warmth to fill the entire city, and they had an absolutely perfect wedding at the pool of Bethesda in Central Park. I’m sure they’ll never forget their January wedding in New York City — and the truth is, neither will we. Want to see more of Kip and Kate’s wedding? Click here.

We love your style, Kip and Kate. Here’s wishing you years and years of joy and happiness!

We’ve Moved!

It’s official! We have moved the Upstate Photographers studio!

We’re didn’t go far — our new bigger, cooler studio is just a few blocks away from the old space. You can find us at 169 River Street, 2nd Floor, Troy NY.

As before, we are open by appointment, so please call, text, or email ahead of visiting.

Why are we moving? More studio space, more storage, natural window light as an option to shoot with, in addition to our existing studio flash. We have lots of new environments to shoot in, including brick walls.

It was bittersweet leaving our old space — so many good memories of some great shoots with some wonderful clients there over the last four and a half years.

But we’re leaning forward — our new space is going to let us do projects that would have been difficult before. Hope to see you here soon!

All the best,
Paul and Brenda
