Curious about the Upstate Photographers Studio? Here it is!
It was a true pleasure to photograph Kristen and Ryan’s March wedding in Glens Falls! The ceremony was held at St. Mary’s Church, just a few short blocks from the reception at the Queensbury Hotel. Kristen approached her wedding day with a sweet serenity, and was the picture of happiness when she walked down the [...]

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 [...]
Should I get B&W or color Headshots? This goes in cycles. Years ago, after color prints became widely available, the theory was that black and white was timeless, and gave you legitimacy. Then color took over. A couple years ago, a few agents and managers started favoring B&W again, because it makes your headshot stand [...]
In the fall of 2012, Brenda and I were approached by a brand management firm with an interesting project: two major Capital Region Orthopedic Surgery firms were in the process of merging.
