Best decision I made!
Cassondre was absolutely wonderful, and I would 1000% recommend her to everyone! The photographer was the most important vendor decision for me, and I looked at a lot of companies. What originally attracted me to Cassondre was not only that her photographs were beautiful, but they had personality and variety - I felt that a lot of the other photographers I looked at only had 1 style, and I didn't want that. From the first call, she focused on my relationship with my husband and wanted the photographs to express that. She was so thoughtful, always available and even helped me to plan my wedding day timeline. Fast forward to the wedding day, she was calming and professional, but also so easy to talk to and we got along great! She managed to capture every moment I wanted and so much more - she even had a yellow umbrella in her car, and with my How I Met Your Mother obsession, I cannot tell you how excited I was to get a picture with the yellow umbrella. I didn't need a videographer because her photos covered the entire night and showed how much fun everyone was having. Both the prints and the wedding album she created for us are stunning and of such high quality. Picking Cassondre was by far the best decision I made with my wedding - I absolutely LOVE her and the next time I need a photographer, she will be my first call.Sent on 09/14/2019

Amazing service, even more amazing pictures!
From the beginning, we had a great experience with Cassondre. She was always so responsive via email and answered all our questions every step of the way. On the wedding day.... we felt we couldn't have a made better decision choosing her as our photographer. We were so happy that Cassondre was so helpful. She even was helpful in matters that had nothing to do with photography and was reassuring the whole time. We had a big family to photograph and Cassondre and her assistant did not seemed face a bit by it. All the photos we wanted were taken and everyone loved how supportive she was. We have been married for 2 weeks and have been looking at these pictures every day since we received them - which was super fast! We cannot pick which pictures to frame because we loved all of them! All in all, we cannot imagine our pictures ever being taken by someone else. We wholeheartedly recommend Cassondre! You will not be disappointed .Sent on 08/31/2019

Awesome Hudson Valley Wedding Photographer
Cassondre was the wedding photographer for our barn wedding at Nostrano Vineyards. Throughout the entire process she was professional, open and wonderful to work with. She made us feel extremely comfortable during the first look and couples photos before the ceremony. We have a love looking through all of our pictures – they turned out beautifully. We would highly recommend her and we are so glad that we hired Cassandre to capture our wedding!Sent on 08/06/2019
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words Erica! I loved getting to be a part of you and Scotts beautiful wedding day!

Best day ever !
Cassondre was amazing to work with!! From first booking with Cassondre up until our big day everything went wonderful! While meeting with us, she really took the time to get to know us and what we were wanting on our day. She has such a calming, warm presence that kept me at ease on my big day! Cassondre was so thorough and we had an itinerary timeline of our day from Cassondre which was so helpful; We knew exactly what pictures were happening when and where to be. I am beyond excited to see our photos which I know are going to be gorgeous! I wanted to review Cassondre right away to rave about how great she was to work with! Anyone that works with Cassondre would be so lucky and I would absolutely recommend her!! Thank you!!Sent on 06/02/2019
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Alison you are on top of your game!! You and Nick had an amazing wedding day and I can not wait to share more of your photos!
Lucia · Married on 05/18/2019
Wonderful experience, stunning photos!
We first met Cassondre when she took our engagement photos and were impressed with her work. She was extremely professional, clearly knew how to take good photos and made us feel very comfortable. We had our wedding three weeks ago and by the following week she sent the edited images and got started on the album proofs (can’t believe the quick turnaround time). Cassondre and her team took BEAUTIFUL shots and we are thrilled with her work. Our families have seen the blog and commented how much they love the photos already. She captured the day perfectly and we will treasure her work for a lifetime. Thank you so much for being a part of our day. My husband and I both 100% recommend Cassondre Mae for anyone looking for romantic, sophisticated, and gorgeous engagement and wedding photography.Sent on 06/06/2019
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you Lucia, I loved getting to work with you and Bennett from your engagement shoot to the big day!

Talented and Lovely
I can't say enough about Cassondre! She was incredible from the moment I met her! She is talented, lovely, and such a pleasure to work with. Our photographs were absolutely stunning and we received so many compliments on them! I can't wait to use Cassondre for family photos in the future, she will be part of capturing our lives forever!Sent on 06/06/2019
Definitely the best of the Hudson Valley!!!!
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Jess, thank you so much! You are the sweetest, I loved getting to work with you and Kyle on the big day!
Brittany · Married on 04/27/2019
By far, our best vendor!
Cassie made our day SO much easier! She was on point with everything and made sure we stuck to the timeline and made sure that all the other moving parts were turning so we could be less stressed. She made us feel very comfortable on this hectic day, which is the most important thing! And her pictures came out absolutely stunning! She made our special day much more special.Sent on 05/10/2019
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you, Brittany! You two were so much fun to work with! I'm so obsessed with how beautiful your photos came out, it was the perfect spring wedding!

Fun, affordable, and easy to work with!
Cassondre was a dream to work with! We found Cassondre through a recommendation from a friend who had recently used her for their wedding photos. Upon meeting with her we explained our budget and what we wanted from our wedding photographer. She put together multiple packages within out budget and we chose the one that best suited our needs. We shot our engagement photos and it was actually fun! It was a cold and drizzly April day, but you wouldn't be able to tell from the photos. She gave great direction and posed us in ways that were sweet, romantic, and flattering to our bodies. We loved the photos so much we purchased an album to use as our guest book at our wedding.Sent on 04/23/2019
On our wedding day Cassondre showed up early w/ her 2nd shooter to capture the details of the day and getting ready. She was so discreet throughout the entire getting ready process! She captured the candid loving moments between my girls and I, and then of course some sweet posed photos with the crew. Once we were at the church, Cassie captured a tender "first touch" moment between my husband and I as per her suggestion, and I absolutely love the photos!! During the wedding ceremony I didn't even notice any photos were being taken, which I greatly appreciated since we were in a church. After the ceremony we took photos in the church with our families and Cassie handled that so well, there were a lot of people to keep track of.
We were even ahead of schedule so my husband and I were able to meet with out guests in the coffee hour we had scheduled for our guests between the ceremony and the reception. We went to 3 different locations for portraits and each location's photos were more beautiful than the last! Cassie truly captured all of the greatest moments of our special day. She was also very quick to get our sneak peek and out entire album. I hold these photos very close to my heart and I look at them often and it brings me back to the most wonderful day of my life. I look forward to working with Cassondre again in the future!! I highly recommend choosing her to capture your special day.
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Monica! You are Brian have been so great to work with! Your engagement photos are still some of my all-time favorites and I loved being a part of your wedding day so much!!

Krystal Romano · Married on 03/05/2019
Cassondre is fantastic. She is very easy to work with. My husband was worried about feeling uncomfortable having two photographers on him all night but we never even knew they were there. Our photos are beautiful. I couldn't be more happy with them. Cassondre has a great eye. On our way to the venue we passed a park. We only planned on taking pictures at the venue but Cassondre saw this park and had a vision. After taking formal photos at the venue, she took us in her own personal car to go to the park and take what are some of my favorite pictures. She goes above and beyond for sure!Sent on 06/29/2019
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you so much Krystal! Your wedding day was so much fun and those flowers just made for the perfect spring shots, I'm so glad we did that!!

Rainy days made perfect!
Cassondre truly made our wedding day SO fantastic. From the very beginning, doing our engagement shoot in the rain and making it a blast, this girl was not only super professional and knew what she was doing but made the entire experience fun! Throughout every meeting, Cassondre had such patience and never rushed us into any decisions (I have a tendency to take forever to make a simple decision).Sent on 11/15/2018
The day of the wedding, Cassondre went ABOVE and beyond making sure that she captured beautiful pictures, as well as dealing with a very stressed bride (it was raining and I was pregnant, there was no champagne to calm this girl down) Due to the rain, the normal areas for pictures were not able to be used, but rather than wait for the actual coordinators to help get things done so we had a spot for pictures, her and her assistant started taking patio furniture down and creating a scene for our photos. She became my go to second hand when I needed her, (which wasn't even her job) while simultaneously being behind the scenes, capturing beautiful shots without us even realizing she was there. How she did it, I will never know! Not only did Cassondre make sure we were comfortable and smiling while standing in mud, but she made it fun! She stayed later than she had to, and just kept taking pictures even when I reminded her that she was staying past when she had to!
The next day, we had our sneak peak of pictures.. which were breathtaking! (and I am one of those who hates pictures of myself usually so loving them as much as I did is shocking) Then, barely a month later (much earlier than expected), we received our pictures on a VERY easy to use link. To say I was in tears, over the beautiful pictures would be a COMPLETE understatement. After hearing so many horror stories of women hating their wedding photos, I was surprised there wasn't any I hated - even the many ones I was ugly crying in.
Our wedding was the 4th wedding that I have been involved with that Cassondre has been the photographer - starting with my sister's & the next two being close friends of ours that we were very excited to recommend Cassondre as a photographer. Each wedding was completely different from one another, and yet we still received exactly what we were hoping for with our wedding photos. To be honest, we would all recommend her and her team to anyone who would listen with or without a ring on their finger and intend on continuing this as many more of our friends get engaged or start families, or need a photographer.
I truly cannot wait to work with her again for many years to come, for family shoots or mini sessions. She is simply the best!!! When hiring a photographer, many think they are just hiring another vendor, when in reality, you are gaining a friend, a helpful coordinator, an artist, and a lifesaver.
Thanks again Cassondre! Our wedding day would not have been the same without you!
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Michelle, you are the absolute sweetest- I'm crying happy tears!!

Jocelyn · Married on 10/05/2018
Cassie was the best!! After our first meeting with her we knew she was the one we wanted to do our wedding. We did our engagement session with her and it truly helped break the ice. She is so easy to work with and got everything we wanted for our wedding. Anytime I turned around Cassie and her assistant were right there making sure they got every shot of the night. She definitely took the time to get to know us and the style of pictures we wanted. I seriously am so happy with every single photo from our wedding and always find myself scrolling through them in awe. All of our guest called me and could not compliment her photos enough and I recommend her to any couple looking for a a wedding photographer. I promise you will not be disappointed in your choice. Thanks Cass for truly capturing our wedding and helping us relive is in your photos.Sent on 11/06/2018
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thanks so much, Jocelyn!! You two had such a fun wedding day from start to finish, I'm so glad I got to capture it all!!

Rainy day turned into magical day
Cassondre Mae was wonderful to work with and very responsive. She made the process leading up to our wedding day as stress free as possible and especially on our wedding day when the forecast changed from clear to a rainy beginning. Added touch of a clear umbrella which created some amazing photos! She is beyond talented and her work has an artistic look to each photograph. I wasn’t sure what to expect from my photos and the minute she posted a sneak of my wedding pictures on Instagram and FB I was in love! I couldn’t be happier with choosing her services and we can’t wait to receive our wedding album. She offers a great package for the value and I recommend her to anyone looking for a talented photographer. You won’t be disappointed!Sent on 10/22/2018
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you so much, Alicia!! Working with you and Eddie has been great! I'm so glad you love all of your photos!
Adina · Married on 08/18/2018
We found Cassondre through a family friend who knew her professionally. Her photographs are just beautiful, and she really delivered for our wedding! Neither of us are very comfortable in front of the camera, but her pictures captured our silliness and the joy of the day rather than our discomfort. I can't wait for the final album and to get some pictures in frames! Thanks Cassondre!Sent on 10/13/2018
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you, Adina! You two were so cute in front of the camera!
Judith · Married on 08/17/2018
Let’s be honest, planning a wedding can be stressful. Making a big decision like choosing a photographer can be tough. There’s so many photographers to choose from. I was searching for photographer that fits my now husband and I style, it took me couple months. Followed their Instagram profile, send a bunch of emails, read a ton of reviews online. Then I came across CMP, her first few photos from Instagram blew me away. I love how she captures with style, authentic and the way she edits. I am not a fan of dark, gloomy wedding photos to be honest. She is professional, easy to deal with, helpful and outgoing. She would capture every moment, wouldn’t care if she would be sitting, laying on the grass and gets dirty! From day 1, engagement session to our big day- she never failed to amaze us! Our friends & family said the same thing- “your photographer did a GREAT job”.Sent on 06/21/2018
Her assistant on the day of, Alicia was excellent too! We are having a hard time to pick our favorite photos to be honest, our place will be covered in them for sure. Lol.
Will definitely hire her again in a heartbeat! Do yourself a favor and message her! You’ll thank me later.. ;)
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you Judith! You two were amazing to work with!!
Emily · Married on 08/12/2018
I found Cassondre on Instagram looking through hashtags and instantly fell in love with how she captured her clients and all her beautiful photos. She was so easy to work with and talk to right from the start. We live in the NYC area and she was very accommodating with our meetings. She was always organized when we met, asked the right questions, and usually answered my questions before I even asked. The day of my wedding I was beyond nervous with everything that was going on and she was always on top of what needed to be done, where and with who and even stopped to just give me advice or see what I wanted to do when we had extra time. It was so calming knowing she was there with me and basically making sure everything we had talked about and more got done that day.Sent on 09/16/2018
She had our wedding photos back to us so quickly! I think our sneak peak came 2 days after, the beautiful blog post with even more pictures a few days later, and the entire online gallery exactly a week after the wedding.
I can’t tell you how many amazing things friends and family have been saying about not only the pictures but about all the hard work they noticed Cassondre and Nicole put in for us on our wedding day. They went beyond our expectations and never stopped making sure it was a perfect day. I can’t thank you two enough! My husband and I are very happy we went with Cassondre as our photographer and would highly recommend her every time and to everyone I know.
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Emily, thank you so much for your sweet words!
Lindsay · Married on 08/11/2018
We were incredibly pleased with the results of our engagement shoot with Cassondre and our experience with her on our wedding day was just as amazing. Cassondre is extremely well organized as she planned out beforehand how far away all the destinations are and how much time we would have to take our photos in between the ceremony and reception. Cassondre and her assistant Nicole worked nonstop to ensure that every picture we wanted would be taken and that every family member and friend would be included.Sent on 09/08/2018
They were both incredibly attentive and professional throughout the day - from us getting ready for our wedding ceremony to the end of our reception. They even helped to stop traffic for us in the middle of a busy bridge just to get that perfect shot!
Her talent in her pictures really speak for themselves as I have yet to see a photo I don’t like! We couldn’t recommend Cassondre enough for your engagement photos, wedding photos, or really any event you need pictures of.
Cassondre Mae Photography's reply:Thank you so much Lindsay! I've enjoyed working with you two so much!
Mary · Married on 08/04/2018
Cassandre Mae is fantastic! Her vast skillset and creativity really captured our special day perfectly! We are so thankful for all her hard work leading up to, and through our wedding day. She was kind, helpful, timely, supportive, and flexible. We had our photos back within a week and they were beautiful--she was able to capture great moments formally and she got some awesome candid shots. She is able to handle a simple backyard farm wedding or an elaborate venue and does a beautiful job with both. My husband and I would highly recommend her to family and friends!Sent on 09/07/2018

Sarah · Married on 07/07/2018
I absolutely LOVED working with Cassie! I think the scariest part of planning a wedding (there are many, but this one takes the cake) is finding a photographer. When it is all said and done the photographs are the only thing you can take away from that day. It was by chance that we came across Cassie and I think it was meant to be. She was so easy to work with and creative. She captured the joy and fun of the event. You feel the beauty of our venue and you can practically taste the delicious food and treats that graced our guests plates.Sent on 07/30/2018
