We've been capturing weddings for a long time now- this will be the start of year 13 for us! We aim to be a breath of fresh air in this industry and to your wedding day, trust us, we know how stressful wedding days can be! Not only do we have a lot of EXPERIENCE, but we understand that being comfortable with your photographer is everything on your special day. We make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible from the moment we are involved. We communicate religiously, you'll never find us ghosting you. You'll be guided with tips, expectations and logistical advice with well thought out questionnaires & timelines. We'll have a good laugh (and a tasty cocktail!) to loosen you up for your engagement session.
From helping you with your timeline, to keeping family pictures organized and stress free, we have your back! We'll be the guiding and calming force you never knew you needed, while giving you beautiful images to cherish forever. Timeless & natural photographs that tell a real wedding story - YOUR story. From the gorgeous portraits to the candids of loved ones that'll have you laughing tears. Your experience with us, will be nothing short of phenomenal. Our experience ranges from small, intimate weddings to traditional large weddings & everything in between. Apart from your family & wedding party, your photographer is with you 95% of the day so make sure you choose someone you like and makes sure you have fun!
Being parents of 3 children ourselves. we understand all too well how quickly time passes when it comes to our own family. Hours turn into days, days into weeks...you get the point! We take our fair share of snapshots with our phones, as you probably do too...but it's just not enough sometimes. We owe to ourselves & our kids to be more than just jpegs in a folder on your laptop.
Remember as a kid when your parents would drag you out to the stuffy portrait studio in the mall? The smell of the musty props and cheesy backdrops to go with the extreme discomfort, all turned out embarrassing photos that we would all like to forget, right?? It's hard to blame our parents...their options were limited.
Living in the beautiful Hudson Valley, we are surrounded by so many amazing & beautiful locations. We prefer to capture people in comfortable surroundings, in flattering natural light while creating a memorable experience. We have a few favorites we prefer to shoot at but are willing to consider options you may have. We'd be happy to hear your ideas!
If you aren't genuinely having a good time during our session, it will show in the end product. We do our very best to capture you in a natural way and therefore create photos you are proud to display in your home.
"I can't say enough about how wonderful you are! Not only were you fun to work with but our photos are amazing and whenever I look at them I'm brought back to the day. I can feel all of the emotions we were going through and it's such a wonderful keepsake. It's also amazing to see myself through someone else's eyes - I felt beautiful for the the first time!"

Rebecca and Jesse are a dream team. They immediately put us at ease the morning of our wedding. Rebecca is extremely detail oriented with all of her info gathered prior to the wedding. She also scouts the location and has a complete plan and vision for your wedding. We've only received a few shots (being our wedding was last week)... and every one has brought a tear to our eyes. Personally, Rebecca and Jesse are fun, professional, on point, creative, and sensitive to all of your "day of needs". At first we were not planning on having a video - but after speaking to Rebecca and thinking about it, we agreed. And having Jesse there capturing the moments we couldn't see made it all the more special.

Turnquist photography and videography all the way! My husband and I were initially shy in front of the camera, but during our engagement session Rebecca made us feel so comfortable and captured sweet shots. When it came to our wedding day we knew what to expect and felt right at home with Rebecca. She is so talented, fun to work with, and did everything in her power to make sure she captured those most important moments.Prior to our consultation with Jesse we hadn't really planned on doing a wedding video. When we met with him, he showed us one he had just done for another couple and it moved me to tears. It was then that I knew we had to have one. We can't thank Turnquist Collective enough for preserving those special moments from our wedding day.
