Just north of the bustling cityscapes of New York City lies the serene oasis of the Hudson Valley, which I am lucky enough to call home. I’m a Westchester branding photographer and Hudson Valley branding photographer with over 10 years of experience. I began offering brand photo shoots in NYC back in 2012, growing my headshot photography business. I was one of the first brand photographers in NYC! For real, I’m not being obnoxious, it’s actually true! I came up like second on google! I know, it’s crazy. Now there are many brand photographers in NYC and the surrounding areas as people have realized how helpful it is to have personalized, on brand content to enhance their brand’s online presence. Alas, my google rank has fallen (lol!)
I’ve fallen head over heels for the Hudson Valley. I’m totally enchanted by this idyllic setting’s allure, its breathtaking vistas of mountains, rivers, forests, and fields, and most importantly, its inspiring healing vibes.
The NY Hudson Valley is more than just a geographical location; it’s a tapestry of beautiful towns from Cold Spring to Beacon, Rhinebeck to Kingston, Hudson and everywhere in between, dotting the glorious Hudson River. Each town has their own unique character and charm. These adorable towns, set against the backdrop of natural grandeur, provide an unbeatable array of streetscapes for your wellness brand photo shoot! Here are a few of my person favorite places for branding photography in the Hudson Valley.
Nestled on the east bank of the Hudson River, Cold Spring, NY, is a treasure trove of natural beauty and historical charm. Known for its well-preserved 19th-century buildings, this quaint village’s scenic panoramas and tranquil aura offer an ideal backdrop for your wellness brand. Storm King mountain is right across the Hudson river, towering over the streetscape. The mountain literally changes color from season to season – bright hues of orange, red and yellow in the fall, majestic purple blue in the winter, sometimes sparkling with ice and snow (omg, swoon), light green with the buds of spring and vibrant green in the summer. Can you tell I am obsessed with this mountain?
Beacon, NY, is another gem on the Hudson River and the magical place I call home. Once a busy industrial town, Beacon has transformed into an art and cultural hotspot with a tight knit community, complete with the Dia:Beacon museum and a blossoming Main Street, boasting an appealing blend of the old and the new, perfect for capturing the essence of your brand. Some people refer to it as Brooklyn North, which other people think is extremely obnoxious. But the aesthetic is really similar to the city, with the addition of stunning natural beauty and Mount Beacon looming over the west end of Main Street. Not to mention we have the riverside gem Long Dock Park – Beacon is an amazing location for your wellness brand photo shoot with it’s array of options!
Rhinebeck, NY, offers a rich tapestry of historical elegance, with roots dating back to the 17th century. Its charming village center, vibrant community, and sweeping landscapes combine to offer the perfect stage for your brand’s narrative. Poet’s Walk is an easy walk along the river with sweeping views and a giant meadow (think Sound of Music). Also the food is amazing. Post shoot snack, anyone?
Every season in the Hudson Valley brings its unique charm, making it beautiful year-round. Spring blooms, summer greenery, autumn foliage, or winter’s soft snow, each season presents an array of stunning visuals that can elevate your brand’s aesthetics.
For those who prefer an indoor setting, I have access to a gorgeous, beautifully lit top floor yoga studio in Cold Spring, NY. The natural light pouring in from the large windows, combined with the minimalist interior, provides a perfect blank slate to customize for your brand’s distinct visual style. I will be your art director, setting up the space beautifully with your props. And, as always, your home is always a great place for an indoor winter brand photo shoot, as long as we have the right space to work with (I’ll help you sort that all out).
In the spirit of supporting a wide range of wellness brands, I offer a select number of sliding scale sessions available from November to mid-May. This offering allows me to work with different brands and budgets, supporting my fellow entrepreneurs as well as I can.
The Hudson Valley – my home (for life? probably) – with its inspiring landscapes and healing vibes, is more than just a location; it’s a place where your wellness brand can tell its story, inspire its audience, and create beautiful brand photos that really represent you. If you’re seeking a professional natural light brand photographer in Westchester, NY, and the Hudson Valley, look no further. I’m excited to capture the essence of your brand (and YOU) in this beautiful region. Let’s create brand photo magic together!
