Capturing memories
Seasoned with weddings
Pristine quality


I am a New York based photographer who has shot weddings from the beaches of Mexico to the Tuscan Hills of Italy, from the coast of Andalusia to the waterfalls of Iceland. And, of course, all over the five boroughs, the tri-state, and the 50 states.

I love everything about weddings. My goal is to capture them with a classic technique that has a fresh, modern feel. I am nuts about vintage cameras and actual film that you can touch. I shoot in both film and digital, depending on your preference, and I feel that each medium brings something special to the table.

I have had the privilege of having my work featured in New York Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Elegant Bride, Brides, Vanity Fair, Inside Weddings, Elle, Well Wed, Vermont Vows, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, La Bella Bride, and The Knot as well as Style Me Pretty, Grey Likes Weddings, Snippet and Ink, Project Weddings, Borrowed and Blue.

I would love to hear more about your wedding and answer any questions you have. For more information about the services Cappy Hotchkiss Photography offers, please don't hesitate to ask. I can be reached at 917-741-2730 or

10/10 would recommend!

Cappy was a pleasure to work with from the very first interaction I had with her. She is full of joy and excitement about her work and it really comes through. We are extremely happy with both the engagement photos and our wedding photos鈥攅specially the photos of our reception. She captured the joy and excitement of the day so incredibly well. Looking through the albums allowed us to relive the day together and gave us so many fun snaps of our guests enjoying the party. Neither of us are comfortable in front of a camera, but she somehow managed to help us relax and enjoy the experience, making the pictures even more beautiful. Cappy was there for every important moment of our day without being overwhelming. We all laughed with her during the posed shots of our family and bridal party and she managed to somehow work her way around the dance floor seamlessly to get the most amazing pictures of the party. Being able to see these and share them with family and friends has brought us so much joy and laughter. Cappy is incredibly talented, fun, and easy to work with鈥攝ero drama and all smiles. She was on time with everything, including the turnaround of the albums. She brought a second photographer with her to our wedding, Teresa, who was also amazing and they made a GREAT team. We would recommend her work to anyone!

Fun and Professional

Cappy was a pleasure to work with! She engaged the whole wedding party and had a great sense of humor throughout the day.
She is professional and used multiple types of film cameras. I would definitely recommend her!

Wow! Stunning Photos!

Cappy Hotchkiss Photography was recommended to us from close family, and after our initial conversation with Cappy and reviewing her fabulous work we knew she was a great fit for us. Cappy promptly responded to our emails and questions, and spent time with us before the wedding discussing timelines, portraits and family dynamics. She was such an integral part of our special day and we cannot thank her enough! From the beginning, Cappy and her assistant made us feel comfortable, they were directive and made sure we were on schedule, and truly captured the most beautiful pictures of the day. Many of our family and friends have been blown away by the gorgeous photos -- we feel so lucky. Cappy is extremely talented and was such a pleasure to work with.

Cappy's the best. She does beautiful work and shoots with passion. She is one of those rare photographers who shoots with multiple film cameras and uses beautiful analog methods in a digital workflow, something I appreciate as there aren't many of us left. In addition to being a talented shooter, Cappy is also a wonderful person, a fab mom, and a proud, NY-woman-owned business. I recommend her highly. I love her and you will, too.
