Beautiful Duo = Beautiful Work = Beautiful Photos = Happy Bride!
Future Brides! This is my letter to you, it's going to go fast and you're going to wish you can pause for a moment in time so you can enjoy and take in everything, but you can't, it's not possible! This is where solid and beautiful photography comes in. There is nothing worse than a bad photographer taking all your hard work and showcasing it in a way that doesn't live up to your expectations or do YOU, your husband or the venue justice. Not the case with The Ramsdens, this husband and wife duo not only love "love", but they both love what they do and it shows in their work. They take great pride in everything they do from their IG posts to their relationships with their brides & grooms, they want you to be happy but #1 make sure you get ALL the photos you asked for on your wedding day which I appreciated. The e-mail communication is constant and helpful and they don't take "forced" or "posed" photos which I like, it was a healthy mixture of everything so you and your husband don't look like two shleps on your wedding day LOL. I trusted them throughout my wedding day because I knew no matter what, the photos would come out fiyahhh. I'm also not into glossy photos, gaudy decor, lacquer bounded photo albums so if that's your thing, no judgement but these guys are not for you. Let their photos speak for themselves, and while photography is quite expensive, trust when I say it's one of those things you can't skimp out on because it will for SURE reflect in the outcome and even your day depending on how professional they are. I also know TR aren't taking as many weddings as they used to so if you're thinking of hiring them do so ASAP especially if they have your wedding date, you won't regret it!!!Sent on 11/22/2019

For the most beautiful photos you will ever have
The TLDR Version:Sent on 11/13/2019
The Ramsdens are hands down the best wedding photographers in the Hudson Valley. Their talent speaks for itself - you can 100% be assured that you will get the best moments of your special day captured.
Caitlinn and Brian are extremely, kind, thoughtful, considerate, sweet, fun, and easygoing people. They are extremely easy to work with and were very very responsive throughout the entire year we worked with them. They are as enthusiastic and as excited about your wedding day as you are. They are phenomenally professional and detail oriented. They never rush you, make you comfortable in the moment (despite how awkward it is) and help you and your SO look the best you can during the craziness of the day.
My husband and I love our photos and I am trying very hard not to spam my friends and family with the photos that we have received. Which by the time, I had SEVERAL friends get married in the weeks before I did, and we received our photos before they did. We received all of our photos in under three weeks. That is unheard of. My husband and I did a small separate elopement and had to hire a separate photographer and it took almost a month and a half and we received a lot less photos.
That was the TLDR version.
Here is the long version.
When I first started my journey by creating a Pinterest board of what kind of shots I would like our photographer to take of the wedding day, I saw The Ramsdens work everywhere and I kept pinning them. After too many pins, I realized the work I was obsessed with was from the same photographers and decided to take a look to see if they would be local to me. And I was so blessed to find not only were they local to me, they were right in the Hudson Valley and regulars at the wedding venue I was getting married at. It could not have been more perfect.
I am also an extremely nitpicky person. To give you a sense of what that means, I tried on 70 wedding dresses before deciding the right one. Even though my gut instinct screamed at me, The Ramsdens are the one, you should hire them, to make sure I was making the right choice I went through the routine of looking at other work just to see if anyone could compare. I searched high and low to see if anyone could compare and they did not. Just looking at people's work it wasn't even a fair shot.
I am also very awkward in photos. I do not like being photographed from many and various specific angles because I have a flat profile, make weird faces, and am always blinking. The Ramsdens managed to capture me in the most flattering way possible so that I don't hate the way I look in pictures (because I usually do). My husband is luckily very photogenic so he was not as concerned about this point as I was.
In fact, I thought The Ramsdens only photographed only hot couples because everyone seems excruciatingly beautiful and good looking in all their posts. But it's not the couples, it's them, they are magic and make everyone look like models with their skills.
Your wedding photos are an investment and they are worth the investment in every single way possible. THERE WILL ONLY BE REGRETS IF YOU DON'T HIRE THEM.

Hands down, best wedding photographers!!
We got married in August 2019, and hiring the Ramdens was the best decision we made in our planning process. From our very first phone call to the delivery of our album and prints (which we just received!!), they went far beyond our expectations. Not only are they incredibly fun to be around (please be our best friends!), they are so professional and make the whole experience a blast. We took engagement photos with them as well, and we were so nervous because we'd never taken professional photos before. They instantly made us feel so comfortable and we genuinely had such a good time adventuring with them in the Hudson Valley for that shoot. When we got those photos back we knew we were going to get unbelievable wedding photos - but honestly had no idea they would be THIS GOOD. At first I thought I might be biased (they are our photos after all) but everyone who's seen our photos has told us how crazy gorgeous they are and how they've never seen wedding photos like this.Sent on 12/01/2019
Let's also not forget how fast they are with turnaround times - I have friends who wait years for their wedding photos to come back. At our brunch the day after our wedding, our sneak peek arrived. It was crazy and so amazing to be able to relive those moments just hours later!! As soon as we got back from our honeymoon, we had all our photos ready. It took us a while to choose our favorites for our album - it's literally impossible to choose favorites from so many incredible photos - but once we did, they once again turned around an absolutely insane product so, so quickly. I really don't know how they do it!
Do yourself a favor and hire the Ramsdens, THEY ARE SIMPLY THE BEST!
