Basilica Hudson Wedding – Dana & Martin

Basilica Hudson Wedding // Dana & Martin messaged me on Instagram after they saw an image I posted from a shoot in Brooklyn.
I fell in love with the venue, the Basilica in Hudson, immediately once we wrote a bit.

We met up very soon for coffee and took some engagement shots in NYC. That made me even more exciting about the wedding.

The light during the getting ready was so beautiful. It gave me the power to create a very cinematic and dark moody look.
Even the light in the Basilica was special and the set up was simply mind-blowing. You will get what I mean once you reach the images.

The ceremony started with an acoustic version of “For Emma” from Bon Iver and I could not stop myself from singing along behind the camera. Dana was walking into the room and you could clearly see how happy Martin was once he saw her.

After Dana & Martin made their exit, they walked into a secret gallery. A gallery that was set up by their friends with photos, videos and even a podcast in the style of “This American life”. As a result from that see they were surprised once Ira Glass started talking at the end of the podcast.

Once they were done in there we jumped out for some quick photos in the cold before we went back in for the first dance and the super awesome party with the best playlist I ever experienced at a wedding.

You can finally turn on the music and have a look at all of the images now!

Awesome work! I'm glad I found your website, pure inspiration
I adore weddings at the Basilica. It is so different than the usual upstate venue. It offers something different. And your photos, well, they speak for themselves. Great job!
