Lovers, then photographers.
I’ve been a photographer for ten years, and a wedding photographer for six of those - six really incredible years. Prior to following the dream and taking on weddings full time, I had a career job managing a distillery. I spent my weekdays producing (and tasting) some of the best craft booze New York has to offer, occasionally traveling the country to share it with fellow spirits lovers. Paid vacations, great benefits, the whole nine. I liked what I did for a living…
But I LOVED spending my weekends as a wedding photographer. And once I took that leap, I never looked back.
I’ve always been an artist, but it’s been just two years since catching the photography bug… And I’ve been siiick ever since! Jack and I joined forces and immediately hit it off - so much so that we’ve added a tiny third-shooter to the team in January 2021. I started as an assistant occasionally second shooting weddings, but the more I got involved, the more it became an obsession. I fell in love with the entire experience. Getting to know the people we work with, really understanding what they’re about and then telling their stories image by image. THAT is what feeds the passion. THAT is what will prevent me from ever tiring of this “job.” I mean, I get to celebrate AND memorialize all of the beauty that is a wedding day. Then I get to share those memories with the people I’ve grown to care about. It’s truly incredible!
Together, we’re Jack + Bailey, partners in life and business. We’re based in Hudson Valley, New York. With engagement, wedding, and portrait photography, our goals are simple: to represent who you are, to transpose emotion onto an image, and to piece together moments that tell your personalized and unique story. Wherever your story takes, we’ll excitedly adventure with you!
Experiences with us!

"I had the pleasure of having Jack & Bailey shoot our wedding. They are not only extremely talented, creative, and imaginative, but kind, friendly, down to earth, patient, people. They captured our day from beginning to end and the results prove how passionate they are about their work. The formal posed shots came out beautifully, and the candid shots they captured made me cry tears of pure joy. They have a knack for clicking at just the right moment. Our guests commented on how friendly and non-intrusive they were. I’m purposely trying to find reasons to hire them again. Reach out to them. You won’t be sorry."

"He and his second photographer were very efficient. They were in the background, and took fantastic photos. Was very flexible. Made us feel so comfortable and we had a blast doing the engagement and wedding photos.The pictures are more natural, not so many poses outside of the formal photos. Highly recommend!!"

"My husband and I got married just about a month ago and could not have been happier working with Jack. When we first glanced at his photos on his website, we knew he had an amazing talent. After receiving photos from our engagement shoot, we were absolutely blown away. My husband and I had never been before a professional camera before and Jack and his assistant both made sure we were super comfortable throughout the entire time. Jack is professional and quick to respond. He truly captures pure bliss in his photos and I am SO happy we chose him as our wedding photographer. His prices are reasonable and the finished product is BEYOND amazing. Thank you Jack & team for capturing the most special day in our entire lives in such a perfect way. If you are searching for a photographer, you will not be disappointed with Jack!!!! 10/10!"

"Hiring Jack was the best decision we ever made! He and his 2nd photographer were all an absolute pleasure to work with. They were friendly, punctual, and did everything possible to make our wedding day spectacular. He listened to my vision and what I was hoping to see in our photos, did a practice "get to know you" shoot, had some fantastic artistic ideas, and even brought some lighting to help out with our DIY photo booth. We had some pretty heavy rain at our outdoor wedding and they went above and beyond to get amazing photos of our decor before the rain started and even helped move everything under the tents when the rain began. I should note that my husband and I are not photogenic at all so the fact that they were able to make us comfortable and still produce some pretty amazing shots is pretty incredible. The next time I need a professional photographer, Jack will be my first call!"
Steph and Eddie
"After interviewing multiple photographers on wedding wire, we decided to go with them and couldn’t be happier with their photos! Very organized and easy to work with. We told them what we envisioned and they went above and beyond our expectations! Great angles, great communication, and awesome final edits! You can’t go wrong with them. HIGHLY recommended!!"
Lisa and Carl
"We cannot say enough about how amazing Jack and his team are! From our engagement photos to our wedding pictures, they were so beautiful. They really captured the feel of our wedding in the pictures we have seen so far. Our guests could not stop talking about how friendly and accommodating they were. By the end of the night they felt like one of the family. They are so fun to work with and I highly recommend them!!!!!"
