Best Hudson Valley wedding photographers

Long story short, young Jimi Ferrara purchased his first pro level camera in 8th grade, and considered himself a photographer ever since. He later graduated with a BFA in Cinematography and minor in Photography. After college, he started worked in the film business as a union Camera Assistant, Local 600 on movies and commercials. Along the way he became exclusive with the Saturday Night Live Film Unit. He built a darkroom in his house in 1998, and was hooked all over again with creating photographic art. In 2003, he officially started a professional photography business in the Hudson Valley, and left the world of movie making and SNL soon after. Coming from a filmmaker's background has given Ferrara an undeniable advantage in telling a story through still images, as well as being extremely efficient with a given timeline.

Based in the Hudson Valley, and an active member of the Professional Photographers of America, James has won countless awards on a national and state level. He earned his Masters of Photography with the PPA in 2010, a PPA Craftsmanship in 2018, and is also a PPA Certified Professional Photographer. He is always attending seminars to further his education, as well as speak on a national level.
